Ibanez S5570 Pickups?
Is it possible to get any info on the Ibanez S5570 TKS pickups as I don't seem to be able to find any real details.
neck pickup HGD1 (H) neck pickup (Passive/Alnico)
middle pickup ST2 (S) middle pickup (Passive/Alnico)
The marketing says:
'high-octane Hot Grinder humbuckers, the Short Tracer single-coil pickup'
Aggressive, articulate tone from specially designed HGD & ST Pickups
The Hot Grinder pickups are specially designed for the S Prestige—gain is optimised
yet sharpness is not sacrificed. The Short Tracer single coil pickup matches perfectly
with the hot humbuckers making the S guitars among the most versatile.
Are they made by Ibanez themselves or are they in fact made by Dimarzio, and if so what are they closest to in the current Dimarzio line?
Anywhere to find the specific output ratings?
I actually just bought this guitar and am finding the pickups a little glassy for my tastes. I am thinking to swap them for a Seymour Duncan JB and 59 combination:
Do you think this would be a good choice in the S5570's slim mahogany and maple neck? I play a lot of jazz fusion and have had the 59 neck on several other guitars and adore the warm round organic I get from it
but they were all ash bodies. I'm hearing the 59' can fail badly on Mahogany bodies.
