I have an Ibanez RG-420EG SBK, I can't seem to tune it properly.
Would appreciate a reference or tips.. or maybe a tutorial or w/e.

That guitar has a floating tremolo system on it so you need to look at this: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=614226

its tuned
EADGBE this is from the biggest string to the thinnest
if you tune the low E, or really any of the strings, then you can tune the rest of the string very easily knowing this
The fifth fret of the low E is the same note as the open A string
the fifth fret of the A is the same note as the open D
FIfth of D is open G
Fourth of G is open B
Fifth of B is open high E
you should be able to tune the guitar with this, if you can get even one string in tune
also,
the seventh fret of the A string is the same note (although an octave higher) as the low E
the seventh fret of the D string, is an octave higher than the A string
the seventh fret of the G string is an octave above the D string
the eighth fret of the B string is an octave above G
and the seventh fret of the high E is an actave above the B

if your problem is intonation, then perhaps you need to get your truss rod adjusted?
this would be lie if you tuned the guitar and it all sounded good, but when you actually fret and try to play notes and chords, they are to sharp or flat of what they are supposed to be
i just looked and saw this guitar... new post coming
