Need help finding sweet tones on the RG 655
Hey everyone, I just picked myself up my first Ibanez guitar and woah if you haven't had a chance to play the prestige 655 yet well i it really is so easy to play and incredibly resonant.
However i was hoping somone could help show me the ropes when it comes to getting some sick tones from this guitar. Having this 5-way switch is something im totally not used to and although it's really daunting at the moment, I'm pretty excited to delve in and figure this **** out.
I've barely had a chance to play this beauty yet but already i've fallen in love with how sparkly the single coil tones are. and loving the funky as hell sound i'm getting from having the pick selection thats closest to the strings (sorry i' not really sure how to word the options)
But surprisingly the tones i'm struggling to find here (which i'm sure is due to my inaptitude and lack of practice time and not the guitar) are the crunchy rock n roll sounds and the nasty metal tones that wake up my neighbours when i pick squeal. So any advice to get them would be sick. And also how do i get the best shredding tones?
Actually I'm very interested in every tone at the moment, im loving fusion music the now, and i know if i can learn the ropes here with this new guitar , well it'll be all groovy.
so any input would be greatly appreciated as far as amp settings and pick up selections the tone nobs or relevant links and all that good stuff.
Thankyou so much for taking the time i really do try to play a little bit of everything so whatever you're sound is i'd love to know how you get it.
Also off topic but it does have me a little worried, the whammy bar has been creaking alot is this to be expected?
