Help a blues player make his Ibanez awesome...
Title says most of it, I basically play classic rock and blues, but I love EVH, Satch, Timmons and of course Vai...so on an impulse, I bought an RG at a pawn shop.
I got a low level RG, I don't know the model exactly, but it is basswood, 3 piece neck, Edge 3, a reverse headstock and INF pickups
After messing around with it, I am shocked at the quality, for about 200 bucks (used) the guitar is really nice! (especially since I am primarily a Gibson player, if you don't for over some serious cash for them, you get a crappy guitar)
The only thing is, the locking nut is garbage, it doesn't stay in tune at all. First upgrade is a FR locking nut.
Next is pickups, I actually really like the INF pickups, espescially the bridge. I am gonna get some dimarzios, I want lots of output, and an EQ similar to the INF pickups....I have been looking at an Evo set or a Tone Zone/Air Norton
What do you guys think?
