M A I N T E N A N C E
Our congratulations and deepest thanks
on making Ibanez your choice of instrument.
Ibanez standards are second to none.
All Ibanez instruments are set up
to our strict quality control standards before shipping.
The purpose of this manual is to explain
how to maintain your instrument’s finish
and to keep your guitar playing
as well as it did when it left our factory.
CLEANING
Regular cleaning of your guitar
is one the most important
ways you can maintain the
finish and lengthen string life.
After playing, wipe down your
instrument to remove any
perspiration
from
the
instrument. Perspiration can
actually contain acids that can
be corrosive to the strings and
metal parts of the guitar. Gloss finish guitars should be polished with
polish formulated specifically for musical instruments, and a soft, treated
guitar cloth or a cotton rag. Abrasive rags such as polyester can scratch
the finish. Oil finished guitars should be wiped clean immediately after
playing with a dry cotton rag only. If your guitar has become discolored
due to extended use or heavy perspiration, factory appearance, see a
qualified guitar repair person about methods to restore the oil finish to
its original factory appearance.

tension from the neck. When
replacing strings with different
gauge strings, it may be
necessary to adjust the truss rod
tension. (We recommend only
qualified technicians perform
this.) Instruments that have
tremolo systems installed may
need to be adjusted after string
replacement as changes in
string tension can cause the
tremolo to raise or lower. Ibanez
guitars and basses are factory
equipped with the following
string gauges. Please follow the instructions
below for your particular model.

The strings should be tightly wound on to the
tuning machines from top to bottom with 2 to 3
2
string wraps around the post. In the case of
unwound guitar strings, the ends of the strings
should be prepared as shown in the diagram to
prevent unintentional slippage from the posts. In
the case of tuning machines, where the string
1
ends are inserted into the posts, the string can be
cut to length in advance using a pair of string
cutters.
If the tuning machines are
sealed gear units, they are

*The use of coarse strings may lead to buzzing and sound distortion. Using strings that have twists or
kinks may cause buzzing or decreased sustain. Make sure that the new strings are smooth and free
from any defects before installing.

TIGHTEN
Ibanez steel string models
are
equipped
with
adjustable truss rods. The
purpose of a truss rod is to
adjust
the
neck
to
counteract string tension.
There are many reasons
for truss rod adjustments.
One of the most frequent
reasons is changing string
B A S S
gauges or tuning pitch which
can affect string tension.
LOOSEN
String tension changes may
affect the string height and
cause fret buzz or notes that
TIGHTEN
don’t ring true. To adjust the
truss rod, locate the truss
rod nut and adjust it by
inserting the correct wrench
into the nut and tightening (clockwise) or loosening (counter clockwise)
the rod. Truss rod tension can be measured by installing a capo at the
first fret the holding the strings down at the fret position where the neck
joins the body. Insert a thickness gauge between the string and the fret
at the 8th fret. There should between 0.3 mm to 0.5mm clearance. That
clearance is referred to as “neck relief.” Too much neck relief can cause
the neck to have higher action in the middle of the neck causing poor
intonation and uncomfortable playability. No neck relief can cause fret
buzz.

BRIDGES
ATK
MONO-RAIL II
ATK bridges were designed to allow the
maximum amount of string vibration to
transfer from the body. For slightly more
sustain, strings can be installed either from
the back of the instrument through the
string grommets. For slightly more attack,
the strings can be lowered into the bridge
(A)
from the front of the instrument and
hooked onto the
string catch. Intonation adjustments can be
made by adjusting the intonation screws (A) at
the rear of the bridge clockwise to move the
saddle back, and counter clockwise to move
the saddle forward.
Mono-Rail II bridges allow the bass strings to be
isolated from one another by using independent
bridge plates for each string. The strings are
installed by lowering the ball end into the bridge
and hooking the ball
(A)
end below the string
catch at the rear of
the bridge.
Intonation adjustments can be made by
adjusting the intonation screws (A) at the rear
of the bridge clockwise to move the saddle
back, and counter clockwise to move the
saddle forward.
0.3~0.5mm
*Note: When replacing string check with the dealer to
make sure the new strings are long enough for the full
scale length of the bass.

The Ibanez ATK 3 BAND EQ was
designed for use with passive
pickups and allows the user to
control the bass/treble and mid
range boost and cut.
ACTION
Ibanez guitar and bass string action is set at the
factory. However there are many reasons that an
instrument’s string height can change. Instruments
can be affected by changes in temperature and
moisture. High string action can make the guitar
difficult to play. If the string action is too low, fret
buzz or unclear notes can occur. To remedy this,
follow the instructions for the particular type of
bridge installed. In the case of string action, make
sure the guitar is in tune and the truss rod is
adjusted properly. Ibanez action is set at the 12th
fret. The action may also need

Intonation adjustment is the operation of adjusting the location of the

intonation below. Intonation is properly set when the 12th fret note and
the 12th fret harmonic are exactly the same note . This is the center point
of the scale and the most accurate way of setting a standard scale
length. With the harmonic note as the standard, if the fretted note is flat

*Please note that strings can be

PICKUPS
The output level of the instrument as
well as the quality of the signal can be
affected by the pickup height. Pickup
height should be adjusted until the
volume of neck and bridge pickups are
almost equal with both volumes wide
open. The volume may drop drastically
if the pickup height is too low. As the
pickups are magnetic, fret buzzing and
distortion may occur if the pickup is
too close to the strings. Use a small
screwdriver to make adjustments to
raise or lower the pickup.
*Instruments that have adjustable pole pieces can be
adjusted to balance the output of each string.

FINE TUNING
After locking the top lock, fine tuning the instrument can be done by
turning the fine tuning screws (A).
*To allow maximum fine tuning adjustment, it is recommended that the fine tuners be set to the
middle position before locking the nut.
ADJUSTING THE STRING HEIGHT
The height adjustment of the tremolo can be raised or lowered by
adjusting the pivot studs (B) that the tremolo mounts on. These are
located at either side of the front of the bridge. Clockwise lowers the
tremolo and counter clockwise raises the tremolo.
The tremolo springs adjust the tremolo angle by tightening or loosening
the tremolo tension. To adjust tremolo angle, locate the adjustment
screws in the rear tremolo cavity. The tremolo system when in tune
should sit parallel to the surface of the guitar as follows.
If the tremolo system is not sitting parallel to the surface of the guitar,
remove the tremolo cavity cover plate and tighten the Tremolo tension
adjustment screws if the tremolo is forward dumped. Loosen the screws
if the tremolo is up-pulled. Retune the strings to the proper pitch and
check the angle. Choose the number and placement of the tremolo
springs according to the string gauge and the tremolo angle.
To replace strings, thread the new strings through the string holes
located on the back of the tailpiece and bring them up and over the
saddle. The intonation can be adjusted by moving the saddle forward or
backward using a Slot head (-) screwdriver on the adjustment screw at
the rear of the bridge. String height is controlled by raising or lowering
the two height adjustment spinners on either side of the bridge. The
height adjustment of
the bar tailpiece can
be raised or lowered
using the two height
adjustment studs on
either side of the
tailpiece.
ADJUSTING THE INTONATION
Loosen the Pressure pad screw (D) on the locking nut and loosen the
string to be adjusted. Loosen the Saddle lock screws (E) on the saddle to
be adjusted and adjust the saddle forward or backward. Tighten the
Saddle lock screw (E) and tune the string. After rechecking the
intonation, tighten the Pressure pad screw (D).
