springs aren't causing it to go out of tune. Unless it's the prestige RGA, it's probably got an Edge 3 trem, which aren't exactly known for good tuning stability.

It's real, I've never actually seen a fake old Ibanez like that. They might exist but that doesn't look like a fake to me. I like the guitar, the paint job is straight out of the 80's.

If you can buy used, I would look for a Ibanez Prestige with the Edge or Edge Pro. They are some of the best trems you will ever play. They come with passive pickups but you will likely want to...

You will be way better off buying a proper amp. The JC amps are good and worth keeping for the long run. Monitors...not so much. You will grow out of the RP155

All my guitars switch between E and Eb and I haven't had to change anything. Unless there is an issue once you tune to Eb, you don't need to do anything.

You can blame all the super downtuned teenage chuggers for the lack of 6 strings. 6 strings just aren't br00tz enough and this is what happens. Ibanez is keeping with the current market.

You're going to see paint on the sandpaper. 2000 isn't going to go through the paint unless you did like one coat. If there is a few coats on there you're not going to go through it.

The 1570 is a better guitar than any of the premiums. I have a RGR1570 and it's my main guitar, I don't play anything else anymore. The Edge Pro is a great trem, one of the best you will ever find.

You might be able to find an unfinished slotted neck. Have no idea where though, but that's what I'd be looking for if you want to do inlays.
