    Got the Ibanez RGKP6 with the Kaoss pad. the neck sucks. From what i have gathered ibanez replacement necks are hard to find. are there any that will swap out and fit? I tried contacting ibanez, but have gotten no response.

    I would check Jemsite.com and with Rich Harris at Ibanez Rules. Yes, IBZ plays hard to get with replacement necks. Another option would be an aftermarket replacement. Other than "sucking," what's wrong with the neck?

    first off, I had to file down the edges of the frets. they were super sharp. i mean its a cheap guitar, frets not that nice. i should go get it setup.

    That would be a very good place to start.

    Agreed. A good setup may shift the entire way you feel about things.
