  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, newbie from Norway here.... Was just wondering what kind og tremolo system I can fit into this guitar. Just got it (used item :smile_big:) and after playing it a little bit, I now have decided that it can't be used, before I can find a nice replacement system, that will keep it in tune even...

    I've only ever used guitars with trem systems, from OFR to the crappy lo trs systems. However, I'm considering picking up a Prestige S5521Q. I love the Nebula Green and gold hardware look (the whole guitar just looks really sleek), and I'd like to try a mahogany guitar for once. The big...

    I dislike my Edge Zero and I am going to replace it with either an edge or an Edge Pro. I have a couple questions. I don't have and have never had an edge, But I have an EZ an EP and an LP7 so I dont have any measurements for the edge rout. And have no idea about playability, especially palm...

    I have been thinking of getting a RG8420ZD for a while now and want to make sure that the EdgeZero is a very good tremolo before I make the purchase as you can still find EdgePro models around. Is the EdgeZero your personal favorite Ibanez Tremolo system? Or is it simply a very good one but not...

    The bug has bit me again. I tried several years ago to learn how to play a guitar. In '91 I was given a new blue s540fm for my birthday. I was in school and really wanted a computer, but I had to choose between sending that back to get a computer or giving up on part of my education. I chose...

    Hello Everybody: About a year ago I posted the question below: "I have an '83 Roadstar II with the arch top Birds-Eye Maple (RS1000 I think). It has the gold Hard Rocker Pro tremolo system which is missing some parts. I see that parts for these trems are very difficult to find. So I'm...

    Hello there... I'm new to the forum, and got my first Ibanez today after being a Jackson and Fender user for years. I was forced to return my fairly new Jackson DK2M because there was a problem with the tremolo system I couldn't fix, and since DK2M's are out of stock in the UK I decided to buy...
