I don't really have any of these issues with my rg8. What string gauges are you using, and what are you tuning to?

Can't help you unfortunately, just wanted to say that even if you can't identify it or it's worthless, fantastic find. That's a beautiful guitar and a great thing to remember your grandfather by.
