So I've had my JS1200 for about 3 months now (purchased gently used from a guy here in the city who claims was the original owner) and have always noticed that there are two small, thin plastic shims under the neck which I never really wondered too much about.
Then recently I picked up...
I took it out, made some basic setup, truss rod mainly + tightening the trem screws.
It started with somewhat mixed feelings,
- i liked the sound,
- the feel,
- the weight,
- the balance,
- the fretwork,
- the strength of the neck (KTS titanium rods)
- the harmonics
First post, but I'm a bit of a 7-string Ibanez fan (I have four with another UV supposedly being delivered tomorrow...).
Anyway, I just picked up a '97 UV7SBK (silver dot UV). The guitar has a full-pocket neck shim, maybe 1/16 think, that looks like it's brown ABS plastic. I...
Many Ibanez guitars do not have enough of a neck angle to allow big pull ups on the trem bar. The solution has been to put a little piece of something in the neck pocket before attaching the neck to the guitar. Ibanez even branded the factory shims they put in guitars. The image below is a neck...
Just picked up a JEM555 for a dirty price off of ebay.
I've noticed the edge bridge has a lot of play in the trem arm compared to newer models (I'm basing this on 2 rg350s i've owned).
I've seen you can buy proper bushes from ibanez, as well as other people online recommended using...
Hey guys in desperate need of soma advice plz.
Just got my new Ibby 7 string with edge zero 2. I am familiar with setting up my own guitars, i have set it up myself but found that my bridge cannot go any lower. The action is still slightly too high and the bridge has reached the end of its...
Hi Guys, I need to shim my guitar a little on the neck side, but my guitar has AANJ neck joint, and because that is curved on the edge side of the neck joint, this is the first time I need to shim in the neck side, because, all my other guitars always needed a little shim on the body side, so I...
When I got my 540P-II it had a shim in the neck pocket which I removed. There seemed to be no problem, but I did notice that my trem had a tendency to pop out of the locking studs when the strings were loosened.
Yesterday I started expecting it closer, and it seems that the trem is...
The neck alignment on my RG1077xl seems a tad out with the low B a little too close to the edge of the fretboard. I've removed the neck and placed a shim in the neck pocket - AT THE SIDE, on the high E side. It has had the desired effect, but I'm a little worried about it because...
I have an OFR and I need to match it's 10" radius to the 400mm radius of my fingerboard. 400mm is approximately 15.748", and 10" is apprx 254mm. I have 12, .007"(.178mm) floyd shims from allparts.
The challenge: How many shims do I put under each saddle?
