My RGR1570 Prestige, sure it's on the lower end of the Prestige line, but it plays as good or better than any guitar I've ever put my hands on and that's a lot of guitars.

Jacks don't really go bad, they just develop bad connections mostly from getting loose and twisting. I would just pull it out and solder it better. .

The truss rod isn't going to do anything to the neck angle. It only adjusts the bow in the neck, that's not going to help you. Since it's a one piece guitar, you're going to have to recess the...

I wouldn't go through the trouble. I would spend 5 bucks on strings and set it up right.

I had a V3m for a few months, it's really not that heavy sounding without a boost. I used a TS in front and a MXR 10 band EQ in the loop and that helped a ton. There was something I just could not...

Minus the high E? As in you are playing a 5 string guitar? If this is the case, adjust nothing until you have 6 strings on the guitar. You do not adjust trems for missing strings. lol

Well, the RGT320Q didn't come with that trem, so I assume it's a 320Z which changed to the Edge Zero in 2008 and is the replacement for the 320Q. Hard to believe it's brand new since it was...

Love this guitar, of course I'd like it better with an Edge trem but that thing is nice. Good playing too.

The J Craft stickers came after they started the Prestige's and it should say Prestige on the front of the headstock. It looks like a 1570 but who knows.

I sold my perfect condition Viper 400 for $300 recently. That's about the most you're going to get for a 400 series LTD. The amp I have no idea.

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.

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.
