    I have a technical question regarding my Ibanez Jem 7VP (2019 model Indonesia made Premium Jem). Is the truss rod nut (the part where you put the wrench to adjust truss rod) replaceable? I stripped the inner shape of the nut when trying to adjust the truss rod. The truss rod is not broken, the...

    Hello All, Im new to this forum but have been playing guitar for almost twenty years now. This is my first Ibanez. I got this in 1990 when i was in the 8th grade and its been my primary guitar since then. Its been neglected over the years but still plays great. I got the idea that i would like...

    It finally arrived a few days ago. I love the top on this and the Aldrich pups sound very nice :) However, it arrived with the set-up totally messed up. Probably put that down to it happening during shipping. So whilst setting it up, I try to adjust the truss rod. But couldn't get the wrench to...

    Back in the day I bought my RG1570 used, it was shipped without the tool for adjusting the trussrod. Now with my own socket tool I can adjust the trussrod only when all strings are taken off which is no way good because we need strings to be in tune to adjust the trussrod! Where do I can get an...

    So here's the situation: - I can get my neck to the correct relief, but anything beyond that (i.e. straightening the neck more, or getting it to back bow) would require some significant torque on the truss rod, to the point where I'm a little leary of tightening it anymore. Now, obviously, I...

    Well I was planning on taking one of my old RGs to band rehearsal this week to give it an airing. I've not really played it since I bought it a while back, and I tried to set it up tonight. After slackening off the truss rod to get some relief in the neck (there was none) I found this problem...

    I can't find anywhere, what size wrench a Jem takes? I have looked everywhere, the Ibanez site doesn't even have a contact email. Anyways, I know I can get an answer here. I dont know that it matters but my jem is from 1990. I need a truss rod wrench and im not sure what size it is out of these...

    Hello. I'm curious to know if their are any straight forward, simple ways to tell if your truss rod is broken (I said from 'a guitar you acquired' in the title because I'm not talking about snapping it when you're making an adjustment). Does the rod move loosely in the neck or anything like...

    Hey, Recently I purchased a JS1200CA (2006 model) but as expected it came with a less than desirable set up. I've been trying to set it up myself but without leaving the action really high the strings choke badly on the first string while bending. It's especially bad on frets 12 and 15. I like...

    Hi y'all, I've got a USRG30 TP [fading, no surprise :( ] which happens to be one of my fave Ibby's. Now I recently took it for a setup & fret dress, on a Plek by a well know luthier here in the UK (won't say who as they've not seen many TFN's I think so if I can get some advice I'll ask them to...

    Hi all! I live in Arizona, where it is normally hot and dry. For the last week, we have gotten lots of rain which has made it nice and hot and humid here. Should I be worried about my guitars with the excessive humidity we are experiencing? I have a few that hang on the wall, and most are in...

    My JEM7VWH needs a slight truss rod adjustment because the neck is bowed a little to much in the reverse direction. I am sort of afraid to adjust it. What precautions do I have to take? What does it take to break or crack the neck?

    Hi all, ive started to notice quite badly a fret buzz problem ive got on my RG3120, and i'm not sure how to fix it. its only on the low E, A and D strings, and only on the bottom 5 frets of each string. ive tried raising the bridge to no avail as that just made the action further up the neck...

    ok i recently (as in, today) restrung my UV77BK with 9-42 using a 52 for the low B. Previously I was using 10-52 and a 60 for the low B. The trem angle is great, and the action is nice and low... however i've been noticing a bit of buzzing, on the bass strings. Also, the treble strings are a wee...

    I for some reason want ALL my necks to have a locking nut, even if they dont have a trem system, adn i dont particularly like locking tuners and I think that the locking nut adds a lil "flava" the the look of the guitar, and it keeps me in tune, now the biggie, how can I mod a non locking neck...
