Re: RG1570 makeover questions
IbanezDaemon - The pickups I'm getting are hand wound by dylanpickups. The bridge will be a blade humbucker which I have in another guitar (it's amazing), the middle will be wound like a strat, and the neck will be an 8ball wound pretty hot.
They will operate just as the stock pickups while the tone knob is "pushed". But when pulled it will split the humbers. The 3-way switch I would add would then allow me to choose from inside or outside split coils.
Meechy - I thought the FR would be just a drop in but after reading your post and some quick research I'm probably wrong. The primary reason I wanted to swap is because this trem has seen better days and it's not wanting to stay in tune. I could just get a replacement Edge Pro though. I read a lot of bad things about the Ibanez licensed FRs, but I guess it just depends on the model.
