    About 18 years ago, I had a layaway deposit at a store in Southbridge, MA on a used JS6, a guitar I admired and deeply desired. I could only come up with half the money, so I ended up buying a used JS6000 instead. Help me correct one of the greatest mistakes of my musical life and let me put...

    OK guys...monster post, but I could really use your insight and opinions. I have a 1990 Ibanez S series guitar with what I assume to be a Wizard neck. It’s a very thin neck, even for my small hands. I’m in the process of refurbishing it (the guitar and neck) since it’s really beat up. I’ve...

    Hello guys, sorry for starting yet another thread, I read both the sticky threads on cleaning maple fretboards and the amazing restoration job on that JEM77 done by HDS and also the tip regarding cleaning the maple fretboard with "simple green" I find it amazingly useful, but there is only ONE...

    I have an RGT220 HSOL. I don't remember what year it is, but it's the last year they made them, as seen here: http://www.ibanezrules.com/new/rgt220h.htm Anyone know what this finish is? I want to duplicate it on a project I'm working on. It's not glossy at all, and literally feels/smells like...

    I have a player project that was restored with a custom tung oil finish. This isn't the flat tung oil, or china wood oil that you see on the Ibanez SOL's. This is more of a glossy tung oil with laquer finish. I wanna say about 5 or 6 coats created the luster and glimmer. Gave it some great...

    I plan on using tung oil on a project guitar which I have sanded down with 320 grit. Whats the next step before applying the oil? Am I supposed to wipe the body down with mineral oil to clean the surface of all oils which come out of our skin or just go to the oil? Thanks Rick

    Hi, I would like my fleet of guitars to be two RGs, one fixed and one with a trem. I like the oil, but am allergic to tung nut oil. Does anybody know what type of oil ibanez uses on their mahogany oil finished RG 321? http://www.ibanez.com/ElectricGuitars/model-RG321MH

    Technically, I got this 2.5 weeks ago, not today. It plays/feels pretty much exactly like my stock 1989 540-S (Saber). If looks like the back trem cavity was drilled for the back-stop too, so I think that it's originally from that year. The guy I bought from said that he and his buddy pieced...

    Hi all, I've been looking over these forums for awhile and I've finally registered up and joined. I must say this board has quite a lot of helpful advice and lots of mature members.

    Hi There guys, I have a question about the neck of RG7321. I like its smoothness. But i will get that neck thinner by myself for a few milimetres. In that case, i like to know what finish material is used on the neck. Is it thin layer of polyurethane or polyester or what else? Actually, if i...
