Questions for 565 Owners

Well guys I finally have a 565 on its way to me WaHoo!! But I have pickup questions. I play mostly Metal, from hair to very heavy, with a mix of some old rock and blues. As of now these are my choices of whats laying around here.

A) Stock HB-1 coming with the guitar obviously
B) V7 or 8 from another Ibby
C) Tone Zone
D) Super Whammy
E) Air Norton
F) EMG 81
G) EMG 89

If none of those are viable suggestions are appreciated. I dont have much laying around in the way of Single coils so it will probably stay stock for now unless I put in emgs in which case I have an SA. Ive got so many with emgs though Id really probably rather stay passive with this one.

Try the stock ones first, see if you like them. If you don't like them post in the pickup section with more information on what you play through, and tones you'd like.

This!
After you've tried tried the stock ones and if you want to upgrade*post your query in the pickups section and answer the questions in Ryc's sticky so we can help.

Now--is this 565 one of the recent Laser Blue ones on eBay?

If so, green pickups and knobs would really look good on it!

Re: Questions for 565 Owners

The stock neck pickup is actually a humbucker in single coil form factor. I recommend going with the stock pickups as they sound great and are extremely versatile. If you decide to replace, GET THE WIRING DIAGRAM!! The wiring on the 565 is non-standard; positions 2 and 4 are either parallel wired or something very customized to that guitar.

Welcome to the club!!

Cheers,

Race

Re: Questions for 565 Owners

Thanks for the input so far guys. For as much as Ive read and posted here I didn't realize there was a pickup section....duh....I should have.

I do believe its laser blue although it was a little hard to tell from the pics I looked at, but Im sure its wishful thinking that its EG. That actually brings me to another question, does anyone have the paint match for the laser blue or the emerald green as I would want to either touch up some bruises or do a complete repaint.

Re: Questions for 565 Owners

Actually the more I look at some of the pics the more I think it may actually be an EG vs LB. But I guess I wont know for sure till it actually shows up.

Re: Questions for 565 Owners

It's a curious colour... To the best of my knowledge, my 565 is in EG. However, unless I sit it right next to my RG670DX (which I *know* is in LB), then I would still pretty much look at it and think of it as LB!

Pickup wise, I swapped out the bridge for a Tone Zone (added a push-pull pot for coil tapping) and the neck for a Fast Track. I do like TZ's!
