2) would the dimarzio 5 way multi pole pick up selector fit into my RGT? (ie enough room in the cavitiy where the electronics are housed?)
3) I planning on putting a high pass filter on my volume pot, i was on the ibanez parts website and saw that vai/satriani use a 330pf ceramic capacitor ( ibanez part # 3CP1J331 ) on the volume pots. I was wondering what the voltage was on this capacitor? anyone know
#1 Yes they should fit..... double check the shaft length and hole diamiter!
#2 Why not stick with one you know fits..... get a Ibanez vlx-91, otherwise you'll need to measure and make sure the DiMarzio switch will fit. You know, screw spacing, slot length/width! Better yet...... call or e-mail DiMarzio!
Jeez..... you rocket scientists sometimes.....
#3 Cap voltage is not an issue as your guitar is operating on millivolts.... just remember that caps come in varying sizes based on voltage, type of material and construction. A 12v, 50v, or 500v will do ya!
BTW a millivolt is equal to one thousandth of a volt.
Anyway, check the Stewart-MacDonald web site.... you can't go wrong! http://www.stewmac.com/
