The guitar new is 359.97 and i own one... Its not worth $400 hell its not worth 359.97 lol

http://www.americanmusical.com/Item--i-IBA-RG370DX-BK-LIST

There is alot of setup and reliabilty issues with that model...

Not really........

Mine is set up perfectly, stays in tune, and has had no problems what-so-ever (it's the rg 370DXGP though, so i dunno if there is a difference)

the paint on the edge III chipping a bit but who cares

I belive it wasn't really worth the 400 i paid for it (maybe 350 tops) but now with the upgrades i gave it, i woudn't sell it for anything

Rg370dx

I have that exact guitar. I'm not sure its worth 400, but it is decent for an upgrade.

Im pretty sure i got mine used for 300.

Alright, thanks.

Sorry to be a noob, but what's an "Edge 3"?

It's the tremolo that Ibanez puts on most of their lower end Rg's, it gets bashed alot here on UG, but if you're not worrying about a bunch of Satriani or rediculous divebombs, it wont be that bad. BUT, the edge 3 on my guitar is a pain in the ass to tune with or change strings. If you get one, you'll know what i'm talkin about.

He's laughing at YOU.

Heres all the work you have to put into to it make it 100%... Maybe i jsut have bead luck but this is what i had to do to mine...

Normal setup stuff:
Adjust Truss Rod for neck relief
Intonation adjustment
Bridge height adjustment
Had to tighten all screws
Neck screws need to be retightened once a month and check after playing heavy.
Also neck and body will creak when doing tremolo acrobatics so if your recording might be an issue. Because it is loud..

Now the fun stuff:
The guitar does not come shimmed so you have to insert a shim in the neck or you will never get the relief and bridge angle correct also fixs alot of the buzzing issues.

Routing of the trem cavity so you can Get your pull on!(In the words of Dimebag)
Basically you can only pull the trem back a quarter of what you should be able too.

Shim the locking nut as well. Was too low and caused buzz.

Also the pickups were decent but had to be replaced and depending on the pickup you might have to route out to make a slightly bigger hole for the pickup.

Tremolo after one month had knife edge wear and that was with minimial use.

Also. If your changing tunings at all do not go with a Floyd based gutiar!
