    Hey everyone, its kyle. I have a question about my ibanez rg. I pay my guitar for relativley 6 hours a day, 6 days a week for the last year I have had it. I have acid hands which may be a contributing factor. I have recently found that the neck, under the fretboard by about 3mm, around the...

    Hi all, some of you may have read below - new JS1000 btb... mentioned about a bit of a buzz problem which only seems to be getting worse. Only seems to be along the majority of the low E and the first 5-6 frets on the wound strings. playing a barre/power chord sounds horrible =/ i tried to...

    Hi Folks, I have a bit of a weird problem that started a few days ago. Whenever I go to play an E note at the 12th fret on the high E-string, it sounds dead (along with fret buzz). All of the other notes in the surrounding area sound perfect. The strings are about 6 months old, and I haven't...

    This is strictly for Ibanez lovers or collectors. I've probably owned 30 various RG's and USA Customes over the years but I was never able to find one of these. I bought this as a project guitar. I was going to have a custom graphic painted on it but I need to sell it to buy other gear that...

    I thought this would be a funny thread. I just spent an hour trying to remember everything i had and what i still have. It's bad, i have a horrible memory. It runs in the family. Also, i have a large collection at my young age. However, i thought i'd be worth a few yucks if everyone shared a...
  10. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I've been following the directions on the JEMsite tech section to get rid of my buzz on my 560 with a Lo Pro Edge. I can't get rid of the buzz on the wound strings from frets 1-7 or so. But even with relaxing the truss rod it doesn't go away. Now the buzz doesn't come through the amp at all...

    I am having an issue I cannot figure out. I have good relief (.04mm) good nut height (even slightly high). my action is 1.8 mm on high e (very clean), and 2.5 on my low e (which is very high in comparison to my high e). I have 9s on (strings). My problem is that the low side is getting a lot...

    Problems with new Jem7VWH's I have been trying to get a Jem7VWH since the end of summer. I have ordered a total of six of them. Each one that I get has either a warped neck or a twisted neck. Most of them had a hump around were the neck meets the body and this causes major fret buzz on the...
  13. Comments to Ibanez
    Just like the Xiphos 7, there has been a lot of interest over at sevenstring.org about a 7 string RG (mostly people say they want one that is not made from basswood). I'd buy one. It would be the answer to many people at ss.org's prayers, ha ha. Just a suggestion.

    I read the archived thread on cleaning fretboards with oils, and there was some relevant info there. I just moved to the Phoenix area, and it's so dry here. It gets very hot too (100F +); yet doesn't feel as oppressively hot as a Chicago summer with high humidity. I think the winters won't be...

    Hi guys. It's been a long time coming (since October), but I finally received my swirl JEM from Herc today! The neck hasn't arrived yet (weird USPS) but I'll post pics of it when it arrives. All I can say is that all the rumors about swirl photos are true in this case. This thing is AWESOME...

    I just read somewhere, that the origional RGs had nek warpage problem since the neck is so thin. I like my necks uber straight no warps, because it allows for lower action. Anyways, I would liek to know more on this, because strangly I haven't heard any complaints about this with jems and old...

    Just interested in brief stories of how everyone got their first Jem or decided they wanted a Jem. I had always been a huge fan of the DLR/Vai albums and decided last year to splash out on a DY just as I was rediscovering the music that got me playing guitar in the first place. Strats, Teles...

    Here is what Ibanez has to offer us S users this next year The first would be KILLER if it didn't have • Middle pickup • Overly obnoxious binding • Wizard II neck instead of Wizard I The second would be killer if it had • Wizard 7 neck The third would be KILLER if it didn't have • Middle...
