Question Ibanez RG2 EX1 Question.....

Just picked up an RG2EX1 from GC for no reason other than the fact i can't stop buying ibanez guitars and had a question....

Every resource i find and reference i check says this model has a 3-way pickup switch. The one i bought has a 5-way and i can't find any information on the exact config with a 5 way so i'm very curious.

Everything else about it appears to be as advertised though. Do i just have a 5-way doing a 3-ways job because they had some extra lying around?

Re: Ibanez RG2 EX1 Question.....

The internet usually has info that is wrong about the pickup config, I remember seeing various configs that said the guitar had a 3 way but obviously had a 5 way, Like on HSH RGs.

Maybe they ran out of 3-way switches and wired it for 5. Very cool guitar! It probably sounds sweet with the capabilities of a 5-way switch!

The older ones had a 3 way switch with the designed by EMG pups in it. The newer ones have a 5 way with V7/V8 pups.
