Hello folks. My name is Trevor and I enjoy eclectic music. I play and Ibanez RGA121 with the violin finish, very sharp. I have a few musical projects, my own which is a sort of black/post/prog/etc./etc. project consisting of myself. That is the most near and dear to me. The other is a sort of Doom/Folk/Ambient group that is very new and we're working on material, though I do not write much for that.

Anyways, I enjoy soulful lead playing along the likes of David Gilmour, Andy Latimer, Robert Fripp, and Roger Trigaux. Most shred bores me to death, as well as most Death Metal. Hope I don't come off as pretentious!

Cheers,
Trevor

very nice though. I enjoy that look. It's just my first electric that I ever bought, so I'm pretty apprehensive about putting mods on it.

Nope, but I changed my electrics when I installed the Bareknuckles.

When you say loose, do you mean it seems to rotate further than it should, or that it turns really really easily?

Further than it should. It actually fell off and I just jammed it back on. It also makes that clicking noise when it goes to far, the knob not the guitar.

Ah! There is a small grommet on the side of the knob that needs to be tightened with a small flat-headed screw. When tight it presses the knob against the shaft and prevents it from falling off or spinning. The clicking is the screw sliding over the knurled shaft of the pot:



Mine used to do that all the time, it's pretty annoying.

See the screw on the left knob here? That's what you are aiming for.

Sometimes the lower-end models have dome knobs that are a thin metal shell over top of a press-on plastic core. The original knobs on my Agile Intrepid were like that.

To be fair, Ibanez has been known to use cheaper hardware in the past :lol:

Yeah the guitar is really solid and takes punishment very well. It's an all around great guitar and I would recommend it to someone that likes Ibanez. I can also attest that my low end Ibanez is a crappy thing, but it is very durable.
