    I have a 1991 Ibanez rg550 that needs a deep deep cut in the neck filled and blended. At first I thought it was a crack but after taking it to a local repair shop they confirmed it was a cut. I've tried some fillers but the cut is still visible. Any ideas? I'm restoring to sell.

    ....Well.... I was pulling the trem on my RG570 today, to inspect the knife edges and everything. When I was putting it back in and used pliers to pull the springs to the holes in the trem block, the pliers slipped off the spring, resulting in me making 2 5cm scratches on the back of the body. A...

    Would the simoniz clear coat repair "pen" work on a scratch that's not deep? I think it's for polly finishes so I'm not sure if will work on a factory clear coat. The guitar I want to try it on is a 1989 Ibanez..Anyone tried it? https://www.simonizfixit.com/flare/next?tag=os|sm|go

    Hey guys, my brother got a new IBANEZ S470B-SKB for his 14th birthday. He loves it (I think it's a pretty decent guitar, too), but it had a few finish imperfections and a little hair-thin crack in the finish by the volume/tone knobs when he unwrapped it. Well, it's more of a scratch, but a...

    I'm the happy owner of an RGT3102 made in 2003. I love that guitar, but I'm curious to know what kind of finish was used on it. Because it's really weak. On my other guitars, if I drop them or accidently hit them against a door or something, pretty much nothing will happen. Maybe they'll get a...

    Hi, After a long break from the guitar I decided to jump back in and treated myself to a RG2550Z in December last year (3 months ago). After reading this and other sites, I decided to take it to a local Luthier to have the frets levelled and a full setup done. I don't play in a band or gig so...

    Hey, I have a 1989 RG 570 and it's got little scratches all over....nothing serious, you can only see them if you inspect it under light. There's also a few chips and dings on it. But there's also some noticeable scratches on it, not big though, but they're there. I was wondering what is the...
