It applies primarily to electric guitars, but some information may also be applicable to acoustics. So there are at least three of this guitars around. In 1987 the Ibanez Pro Line series was replaced by the Roadstar Pro series, with a range of new designs including Sabre and Radius type models.
Signature model exceptions Different serial numbering schemes were used for Signature models notably and. Before I ever got started I doused the electronics with De-oxit. I unscrewed the string clamp bolts and removed them from the tremolo. I got them leveled fairly well but there is still some minor fret buzz. What makes it so hard is not that you had it bad, but that you're that pissed that so many others had it good. Finished Shots Here it is all put back together.
I have looked at all Ibanez galleries, books and in the guitar blue book and have not been able to find this model. If you have a recessed Edge you need the standard Edge block, which I believe is 32mm.

But there is some that are quite nice and some that are so so. I then reassembled the entire tremolo and reinstalled it into the guitar. They are meant for a Floyd Rose tremolo but they fit the Edge nut just fine.
Good manufacturing and hardware qualité. In the grand scheme electronically speaking you're dealing with a somewhat low output high impedance electronic circuit. The ones made in 1984 had a birch top on a basswood body - but by 1985 the body was entirely basswood. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. If one wants to do the high performance tremelo equipped Superstrat guitar on a budget and own a future collectable to boot, there really is no better place to start. It's been my baby throughout the years, but over time, the Floyd has been a hassle. If you have a non-recessed Edge you need to request a custom 40mm block.

Just something about the feel,tone and look that I really like. I first used a week with a Parck for a week with a lot of fun, now I'm on an Ibanez Valbee with even more pleasure, though the sound settings are more difficult to get the best. Was there such a model factory made in 1986? Like the bridge and the pups.
This one has a 1pc. But if the pickups are ok and together. Preliminary Photos Everything was in decent enough shape initially. I went off topic there huh? One can perhaps make a reasonable guess as to whether a model with an F7 serial number was actually produced in 1987 or 1988 based on the production sequence the last five digits of the serial number. When fretting the string at the 24th fret it should read the same as the open note if the intonation is correct.
In the 1970s, Hoshino Gakki and Kanda Shokai shared some guitar designs, and so some Ibanez and have the same features.

Yes a set-up is totally necessary, but I have 2 other basses I treat like babies and this one, I've been looking at as a potential experiment. These serial numbers are either hand-printed on the back of the headstock often in Sterling silver or gold ink or paint or stamped on the fretboard beyond the last fret or sometimes both. Without holding it in my own hands, I would call it Very Good+.
