    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    Did you seriously go through the effort of switching to Comic Sans just to emphasize your point?



    Classic Rocka.

    Apparently it worked! Attention confirmed!

    But it's not the point.

    The point is that whoever is NOT matching the radius to the fretboard with a Floyd Rose is not picky about setup.
    Well, I'm glad for those people.

    But those who takes setups seriously MUST shim the saddles to the correct radius, otherwise you caaaaaannnnnn''''''ttttttttttttttt get a even string action across all strings over the frets!

    I believe the Ibanez JS have shims in there trems as well. So going back to my problem what radius would I need something along the lines of 18” ?

    No, an Ibanez JS guitar has a more round 9.5" radius (like many Fender strats), unlike Ibanez Prestige RGs with a flatter 17" radius..
    Most cheaper RGs have a little rounder 15.75" radius.

    Not many guitars have 18", not sure where you got that number from regarding a Ibanez JS?

    I was just saying that the JS have shims in there trems, I was not talking about 18" for the JS. I said going back to my problem would I need roughly an 18" for my compound...

    Yeah, roughly 18" should work.
