  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey guys, I just recentely noticed that my RG with an edge pro has uneven height, the treble side is lower than the bass side. I haven't messed with the studs so I am either guessing Rich did this on purpose when he set it up when I bought it (I believe last year or over that), or something...

    Well I bought a RG from ed roman and it seems real fine and dandy, nice action, stays in tune for long periods of time (even after using the wammy like crazy), intonation is perfect,etc,etc. My question is, how do i know if my neck is too high off of the body of the guitar? Il post a picture...

    I've seen some of those people who want a jem sound from one of these and I was thinking-"Why not just get a guitar that sounds amazing to you and get your own sound instead of copying someone else's?" So... I bought the white rg in October (which was great for the price except the crappy trem...

    Ok I've always loved donnies, but the chance of being able to find/afford one is virtually nill, so thought i'd give it a go Not sure what the Ibanez body was 20 quid off the bay route for trem and neck humbucker Get the sand paper out, fill jack & middle pickup, cut angle jack Primer Paint...

    First of all I'd like to preface this thread by saying I don't mean to violate the no posting auction links from the bay policy with this,but I figure it's probably ok since it's ended........oh yeah,I hit it......less than 10 minutes after it dropped. After I took a chance and hit the button I...

    I've searched for this and read Rich's info. But I still don't get it. So... When I pull up with my Edge trem, I don't think that I am getting enough pull up. I played a 4th fret harmonic, and when I pull up the trem it only goes to D# So, I guess I need to raise the trem. Is that right...

    I've always used D'addario 9-42 (EXL 120) on my jems and also my other Ibanez guitar, but I find that something is wrong... I have a Jackson Kelly that I use 9-42 on, but the riffs sound and feel much, much better, and why this is, I don't know because it's the same neck scale (25.5). For some...

    So here's the situation with my UV777PBK: - it came straight from the box to me, so it never had a setup done anywhere other than the factory, which judging from the ridiculous action and poor intonation isn't worth much. I started by dropping the trem height, but what I found was that the...

    I would like to hear from RGT3120 owners and see some pics if at all possible. I was surfing the web today and came across an '04 in mint condition and pulled the trigger (freakin' GAS!!!). I told myself I wasn't buying another guitar until much later in the year since I snagged all three...

    I would like to let all you guys know that i have just received a Js90 HAM form the US. I am in the UK and started talking on this site,to a guy in Vegas, by the name of Xerack. We struck a deal online, and its now arrived, much better than i could have hoped for. As for the transaction, the...

    Hi.. So I was lowering the bridge (took it off and everything) and I applied a bit too much pressure in the wrong direction, add that to a worn out post... and ouch. I broke the top part, where the wrench goes into. So, now I can install the bridge back, but I won't be able to adjust it...

    Ok guys. I need some of your expertise now! I've owned this jem7bsb for some time and I haven't played it for a couple of years. Now I want to set it up and start using it again and I'm having problems with the setup. To start with, the tremolo angle is nothing close to neutral, it is...
  13. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello, new to the forum :) I just got an Ibanez Rg 350 dx for christmas, and It doesn't hold tune for it's life. I have adjusted the tremolo height, locked the nut and everything. If its perfectly tuned, then I dive, it immediatley goes flat, like -10 on the tuner or so. Someone said it might be...

    2 thoughts: 1. You could also explain to him that the string lock screws should be parallel to the body (I believe that they are parallel to the knife edge insert) 2. Are your claw springs old/stretched? Sometimes their replacement, or the addition of a fourth spring can correct the...
  15. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    ...And I don't think a neck shim will help. I recently aquired an Ibanez, consisting of an USRG30 body paired with a RG Wizard neck. No apparent mods to either. Problem is it has absolutely no pullup range, barely raises a note a whole step. I've searched the site for a few days, and havent...

    Anyone know if the stud inserts for the ZR are the same as the inserts for the Edge/Edge pro?

    The tremolo on my JEM7VWH is raised slightly above neutral. Everything else is adjusted perfectly. The only thing that bothers me is that the tuning stability isn't that great since the trem is not dead neutral. If a tighten the springs and bring the trem back to neutral, will it screw up the...

    I searched the archives and can't find any discussion specifically on Vai's blue wrist support/palm-rest-thingy on the original Charvel Green Meanie. Does anyone know exactly what that thing is? It looks like it was cut from something and I can't figure out exactly what. Anyone have any specific...
