so i may wanna mod my $300 RG2EX1
I got my old Ibanez RG2EX1 in 2007 (basswood, bolt on, fixed bridge), and immediatly put an EMG 81/85 in it, and just sold them around a month ago when i got my new jackson. so now it has no pickups. it has a bunch of dings and paint chips, but i think it has potential. The bridge was missing a saddle, and i just took it off.
Okay, so first of all, I need to put some good pickups in it. I was considering a BKP Miracle Man/Cold Sweat set, or a DiMarzio Crunch Lab/Liquifire, and maybe even DiMarzio Evo 2 and Air Norton. What would you reccomend? I play anywhere from prog/thrash/melodic death metal, to jazz/classic rock/blues and other lighter genres of music. I use a mesa mark iii, and i love a tight, crunchy tone.
Second of all, i'm gonna get a new bridge, what would you reccomend that will fit?
Lastly, what else could I do to make it a kickass guitar? What mods could I do? I will maybe get it plek'd, or professionally setup to make it play nice. Would it be even worth fixing up, or should I just get a whole new guitar (probably a LP type around $500, or course i'll put new PUps in it). So any reccs?
