Hey all, I was looking for an inexpensive guitar with a fixed bridge to mess around in different tunings and to mod. I ended up getting an Ibanez RGRT421, it's quite a decent guitar for the price (~$430). This NGD is a little late because I wanted to include some kind of video recording. I took the pictures a few days ago with the guitar in the condition I received it in. I have since changed the strings and adjusted the setup and intonation. Some of the frets need to be filed down, and there's still a bit of buzz that I can't seem to get rid of entirely. I have no experience with filing frets, so if anyone could give me some advice, I would be grateful. The tuners were quite wiggly and loose when I changed the strings, they're the cheap Ibanez tuners with the washer and nut. Is it worth spending the money on locking tuners like Hipshots? I would have to install them myself, which I'm willing to do. I'm also thinking about upgrading the plastic nut to a graphite one. The pickups seem okay, but I definitely want to upgrade them. I'm considering getting a set of Bare Knuckles, or a set of Duncans + tuners (which would cost a bit more put together). Any advice is appreciated! Anyway, here are the pictures! And here are some pictures of the higher frets that really need to be filed. I've really grown to appreciate the jatoba fretboard, I think I prefer it to the cheap rosewood I've had on other guitars in this price range. And here's a video I recorded the other night, a Gojira cover - I'd appreciate advice about the tuners, nut, frets and pickups. Cheers!
