I was wondering if you can help me with the year/model of my Ibanez. It's an Ex series and has only a 7 digit code on the back (made in Korea). Bought in the USA around 1994 or 1995 I believe. But have no idea what exactly the model or production year it is.
What's on your mind?
Hi guys, first post here and looking for some help. Does anyone have any idea what this body or neck is? the serial number of the neck suggests it's a premium from 2015 but it doesn't have the premium tag above the ibanez logo on the headstock. I also have no idea what this body is from so some help on that would be greatly appreciated :) I thought maybe it could be an rg721 neck but it doesn't seem quite the same...
I'm not sure it doesn't have the model name on it.
Hi, any clue as to what model this is? The stamp reflects 'quality and inspection approved by Ibanez, 09.1.14 - W.Zhang" and the serial number is J081251181. Any thoughts on model and current value? Thanks!
I have what was sold to me in 94 (pretty sure it's a 94 model, I should look up the serial again, c4152xx) as trans blue. The image you show says trans teal and that tb is missing. Right at the bottom of that picture you can see the horn of what looks like trans teal. And actually looks more like mine. Not sure what the reality is of all that.
Hello, I got this guitar 25 years ago as a teenager and haven't used it in a few years. Plugged it in today and nothing. The knobs are not right and there's prob other problems as it's not been loved, just kept in a bag for years on end. Anyway I can't find the model of this particular Roadstar II. The serial number says its from 1984 but I cant find anything that matches the pick up config and the body. Does anyone know what it is? i want to get it working and might have a go myself and the more I know about it the better.
Many thanks if you can help
First of all, merry christmas and happy new year for all of you folks. I've been trying to remember an Ibanez that I almost bought but I don't remember the name of the model, just the looks, it was kid of sheet metal with screws or rivets, a super strat with HH pickup pattern (if I remember correctly). Thanks for the help
Hi- Have an all original 1975 Rocket Roll (pre-serial #), but I'm missing a couple of pickguard screws. They are flat head, gold plated. Any information or idea's to source some original replacements? Thank you!
I own a model under the Oriental series. Its the Kamal Mussalam signature model.
I can make an entry if you let me
My beloved 540R was stolen almost exactly two years ago... it had a traditional push-in tremolo arm (the kind with the two nylon bushings). It worked perfectly... very steady feel, snug in its socket, neither swinging loosely nor too tight to move easily, super comfortable and agreeable.
Both of my subsequent locking trem guitars (an RG3XXV and an S670QM) have the Edge Zero II trems, which feature a tremolo arm with a screw-on torque adjustment cap to adjust the tightness of the tremolo bar. There is a single bushing on the arm just under the cap.
The problem: when the torque cap is screwed on loosely, there's play in the arm... it can rattle and wobble around in its socket slightly rather than fitting snugly. On the other hand, if I tighten the torque cap enough to make it feel snug, every time I swing the bar up into playing position and then put it down again, the rotation of the bar in its socket loosens the torque cap and it wants to rattle about again.
This is absolutely maddening. I did three straight months of daily shows in which I was forced to constantly retighten the cap after every use of the tremolo. I found myself adjusting it endlessly throughout every performance, and I never knew which aggravation... a wobbly whammy bar or one too tight to manipulate comfortably... I was going to wind up with. It started to affect my focus onstage, and my eagerness to use the tremolo at all... it just became a massive hassle.
I love all of my Ibanez guitars, and I refuse to believe this is a design choice that someone let out the door with the issues I'm describing... I'm convinced I'm doing something incorrectly. Unfortunately, everything I can find about these trems involves setup of the spring system itself. Surely I'm missing something. Am I the only one having this problem? Is there any way I can replace this godawful thing with a push-in bar, or am I just an idiot?! Please helllllpII
I have been trying the find the name of the two bolts? That are on the neck of this Ibanez model (Got this off Google images since I need a replacement parts for them since mine got lost), Any help would be appreicated!
Would anyone know what model is this?
(From Philip McKnight's channel). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoF6zS5PHyA
My closest guess would be an RG550 with a custom pickguard / pickup configuration, since afaik they all come in HSH by default?
I would love to for someone to tell me what they believe this guitar is worth as far as i know it is a pre serial number artist (les paul copy) everything is original on the guitar including the flying finger pickups ???????
I have asemi accoustic Ibanez AM 50 guitar that I bought around 1985. On the label inside the guitar there is no serial number, instead there is some kind of signature.
What does this mean?
Hey guys, my bridge pickup stopped working randomly. I opened up the back of my guitar and I don't see anything unusual.The output signal when on the bridge pickup is extremely low, but works fine on the dual pickup (neck+bridge or center pickup) and neck pickup only mode.
Hi !! Recently I bought this guitar, but i'm not sure the refference of it, i've seen some images where it looks similar to a grg270 made on China. But my guitar has some differences.
Could you help me with refference. I want to know if its a cheap replica or if its a great unique model.
Hi All, I inherited this guitar from my Father. I can remember him playing it 50 years ago and then it went in it’s case into storage. It is in pristine condition but I can’t find any reference to it on web sites or forums. Could anyone tell me what it is worth please? Thank you for your help. Kind regards, Lawrence.
This Ibanez was gifted to me years ago. However I can not find any information about it. It doesn't seem to be the roadstar series II. I want to sell the guitar but I have no clue what the value would be.. So if anyone could help me out with some extra info that would be great! I also don't know the year it is made, or anything about it really..
Thanks in advance!
