  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hey guys, I first joined the forum back in 2011 when i got my Vai JEM! I never really posted much tbh, and after having the guitar for a bit, TLDR had some issue where the guitar ended up sitting in its case for a few years without hardly getting touched or taken out. I am finally in a...
  2. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Hello folks, yet another thread about the Edge 3's tuning stability. While on my vacation in California, I was looking for some Ibanez standard guitars. However, I found out that the new 2015 versions had been fitted with disgusting "STD. DL" bridges. So, as I covered about 70miles radius going...

    I'm in Scottsdale, AZ and have a Jem 7VWH and a 1989 Jem FP1. I would like to have them checked over, new strings, check action, intonation, worn frets either sanded or replaced, any neck adjustments and set up whammy to stay in tune. I have tried to do a lot of this on my own but would really...

    Guys, I need your advice urgently! Yesterday, I put new, thicker strings(11-52) on my RG and I can't seem to set up the intonation and the action right. Unlike the Edge Zero, I don't have the intonation screw and doing it manually with your strings on it is simply too painful. The strings keep...

    Hey guys, I have finally put my pedal board together and need a few more decent cables, but am unsure if i will be able to put the cables in the correct order. I have drawn green lines on a photo of my pedal board set up the way i think it should go, but would like your opinions to see if i...
  7. Forum Announcements and Member Help
    Hey there! Over the time iv been playing guitar i have become rather fanatical about setting up guitars and making everything about them perfect. After learning the tricks of the trade myself i have come to be rather resentful of the huge prices that come with having a guitar set up and...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    Namely, AN - TZ I want a little less gain and more clarity so lowering pickups is sort of a legitimate option. how far can they go, and can one take them too far from strings?
  9. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    After a conversation earlier today with a guitar playing buddy of mine about getting my Jem set up, he recommended somewhere different to where I was originally going to go due to horror stories attached to the place, as I want my JEM to come back looking exactly like it went in ie no nicks...

    OK, brand new prestige RG1550m (maple fretboard) in poison pumpkin with black scratch-plate and Edge Pro trem. I bought this online from a dealer in UK, because i live Cornwall and nearest decent Ibanez dealer is a few hundred miles away. The guitar came set up, but the action was a tad high for...

    Ok so i just put a Gotoh floyd Rose in my s470 and after setting up the intonation the hex bolts that lock in the low e, a, and g strings stick out just a little past the edge of the routed trem cavity. I dont hav a router so what would be the easiest way to fix this?
  12. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi~ I am a new user of Universe in Hong Kong. I am wondering if any of you guys have experience in setting up our beloved Universe w/ some system like Ibanez Zero Point System, which can make it in tune after using the tremolo vigorously. Also it would make it easier for tuning coz it is quite...
