    Hey Guys! Is there anyone left in the USA that will swap a fretboard? I'd like to get a Green Vine put on an RG7620 neck. I'm also looking to get a few bodies and headstocks painted and cleared. Everyone seems to be out of business or they tell me in a year or two they may have an opening for me.

    the newer Kaos guitar RGKP6 has a terrible neck on it, at least the frets are razor sharp. So instead on getting it re-fretted, i was wondering if there is a neck that would match up to swap? Scale 648mm/25.5" a : Width at Nut 43mm b : Width at Last Fret 58mm c : Thickness at 1st 19mm d ...

    Hey people, If I wanted to change the pickguard of a stock Jem 7VWH, how hard would it be? I mean, it's just a matter of unscrew things, or I'll have to disconnect and solder wires?

    Hello! First of all sorry if this was asked before but I could not find a definitive answer. I've got an S series made in Indonesia (24 frets) and want to put a maple fretboard neck on it from an RG350MZ (also made in Indonesia). Could anyone confirm if the necks are swappable, both are Wizard 2...

    Let's have some statistics on this beaten up to death topic, I am postin' a poll. Have you swapped those IBZ pickups (DiMarzio wound) for regular, or as considered "proper" DiMarzios? I am considering pickup swap in RGT220 out of pure boredom. Thanks for voting.

    Hi, I'm used to Lo-Pro Edges and Edge Pros. Whenever I wanted to change pickups, rather than go through the hassle of slackening all the strings, I always take the trem springs out and remove the trem through the front with all springs still attached. When I put the trem back on everything is...

    Anyone ever swap an Edge Pro into a Lo pro S series body? I've seen the FAQ regarding what trem will fit where but it's for the RG series and I know the S series trem cavity is tighter. I've ordered a new one from Rich, which, hurricane permitting, will be here within the next week (or two)...

    I've been looking into getting a 7 string prestige or j custom, and a lot of them have Edge Zero bridges. I usually don't like knife-edge bridges, but i love the ZR trem on my s prestige. In case i don't like the edge zero, can i swap it for a ZR without doing extra routing, or are they too...

    I've got a beautiful Ibanez RG4EXFM1 up for trade or sale. It's perfect except for a chip on the back of the lower horn (see pic). It even still has the plastic on the cavity/trem/truss rod covers. I just would like something different, with a maple board. A Tele would be preferred. Looking...

    I'm looking to buy a JEM body from Perle Guitars, and I have an OFR sitting here at the house. Has anyone put an OFR in an Edge routing before? How much modification is required? I also know the OFR studs are smaller than the Edge. Are there wider bushings I could put the OFR studs in...

    Ok guys, so I've got a (hopefully) relatively simple trem swap question. Here goes: So I had a Baritone-7 built by Warmoth several years back. I bought the parts, installed most of the electronics myself etc, and had a local guitar tech just like do the assembly of the neck and body, put the...

    Wondering if anyone has done this to their S7. I mean I've seen pictures on here and on sevenstring.org but they were just Buzz McGrath's custom S7. Is there a lot of routing to be done? Anyone have any experience doing this maybe with the 6 stringers? I've already found the s7420 and the...

    While researching which guitar I'll get next, the S620 popped up as an interesting possibility. I really want a guitar with a cool top, and Quilted Maple is among my favorite. It did got me thinking about the pickups though...they are EMG built, but are they active? I'm guessing not, but I can't...
