RG1570 Pickup question. :-/
I have an RG1570, I swapped out the V7/V8 and put in a QM1/QM2 pickup set. They sounds worlds better, and older OEMs are about all I can afford. With the correct EQ settings they are very versatile and sound great. Bassicly just set the mids/highs almost flat and you get a very good 80s rock tone, and give it a little more mids/highs and it gets a very good heavy metal tone. Roll off the highs and add some mid and they are really good for leads. Good cleans too. I know allot of people really like these, and I read what I could prior to buying them. MY question is, for those who have used or heard these, if I was to go with a tone zone in the bridge and a PAF pro in the neck how much better would it sound. I would attempt to get hese used for a great deal, if possible as that is all I can afford. This would be an attempt to copy the F2/F4 setup that people say is amazing.
Is there a Ibanez spec for pickup height ? The pickups have always sat about 4mm from the strings. That to me seems kind of far. I am used to 2mm, sometimes closer. They have amazing output even that far from the strings.
