I have a RG 3570 Z Prestige purchased from Ibanez rules about 5 years ago.
Its the Red one with Mustard pickups and nobs from 2009 -2011.
So, I have rarely had an Ibanez with H-S-H. I've almost always managed to have my guitars with H-H.
So this particular Ibanez RG Prestige has the H-S-H, and the pickups don't have 'mount' rings. And so my high E string repeatedly catch's on the pickup, and gets stuck on it.
This happened live, several weeks ago in front of 2000 people.
Most embarrassing show of my 20 years performing.
Lowering the pickups and raising the poles isn't an option, so any fix, has to be other than, that.
This is a major design flaw, that is blowing my mind.
And so I was watching a Steve Vai vid where he is doing a Rig Rundown, and I notice a bunch of his Ibanez have tape on the ends of the pickup.
Now I'm wondering if he has the same issue, or that was something else completely.
Any help, advice, or shared experience's would be greatly appreciated!
