RG321 CUSTOM Build advice needed!!!

hi all

not been around these parts for a while


i'am almost finished my custom RG320 hardtail

the body has been re-painted in deep metallic blue by a local bodyshop

plenty of metal flake was added for a unique colour

it has a awesome finish, even the wizard 2 headstock has been colour coded with a new white ibanez logo added

I have bought a white paf pro for the neck postion and need some advice on what to use in the bridge postion

realy want this guitar to be versitile, i'am also looking at the following mods

Coil tap like on the js1200 ( which type do i need)

this part is from guitar spares uk

linear (tone)

logarithmic (volume)

500K - Push-Pull - Potentiometer - Replacement "Push-Pull" 500K Volume Potentiometer for humbuckers & for coil tapped humbuckers

Even been looking at mid boost like on the "eric clapton strat"
this mod is available for £21

oh and one more thing

i'am thinking of a D-soinc in the Bridge

are they any good

thanks all

Anyway, I have a D Sonic, and I like it. Very balanced pickup and I think it'll be very versatile too.

Re: RG320 CUSTOM Build advice needed!!!

Y'know, this custom made thing sounds very much like the RG321MHRB comes as standard. You could have bought that for a fraction of the cost you've probably paid and are paying for the existing guitar and customisation work. It'd pretty much just be a matter of sticking in the desired pickups and some possible rewiring and special push/pull pots if the 5-way switching that already exists on it isn't good enough.

As for bridge pickup, it seems people are raving about the D-sonic, so you could always go ahead and get that, plus people are dying for people's opinion on it at the moment too.
