Modded RG570 With Dimarzios

I just got my 570 done. Wish I could post a pic but my camera is not working. It's dark metallic black. I put a Breed in the bridge, fast track 1 in the mid, and a Paf Joe in the neck. The two hum's are black over green. The green really brought this ax to life in the looks department, has a real 80's shred look.

As far as sound, awesome. Dimarzos are the best passives I've played. Every time I try one I like it. I have a Jem with Evo's so this was to be a more Paf style ax. The tone on all pups is superb and the sustain is forever. My friend has a Paf Pro in the neck of a RG350, I like the Joe better, less bass and nice round tone. I'll be using it for metal, shred, jazz, prog and everything else.

Cool. I also like Dimarzio pickups. The stock Dimarzio/Ibanez pickups in my RG770 Rock!

Re: Modded RG570 With Dimarzios

Dimarzio makes a lot of pickups that sound great especially on basswood and alder bodies.

I want to do the same thing to a RG570. I initially figured I'd buy one to put the wear on instead of the Jem and put Evos in it, but then I thought about it and it makes more sense to put something else in it.

Copy and paste in your browser if link doesn't work when you click on it.

This is my modified RG570, complete with new pickgaurd, paintjob (formerly pearl black), and Breed in the bridge. Great sustain, and much more articulate and warmer than the v8.

Tele:

Is that a 550 or did you put a pickguard on a 570? Looks good either way. I think the Breed is a great pup, does what the Duncan JB is supposed to do, but better.

I think the Breed is quite a bit less muddy sounding and has better mids
