RG350dx 2012 disassembling

Hi,
someone tell me if there is a guide for disassemble Ibanez rg350dx?
I tried to look old post but I have not seen it.

I purchased a new Ibanez 2012 and I'd want to change P.U.

I purchased new inf1 and inf2 but noe I don't know how to change it.

Is possible to remove the edge zero II and not all the cords?

Thanks

If you're only changing pickups--there's no need to disassemble the whole guitar.
There are tons of threads to help you in the pickups and wiring section.
Your first read should be this thread, which has links to almost all aspects of guitar wiring:

Tanks for the wiring schemes.
But is possible to remove bridge instead of the cords?
And then... Electronics is under the pickguards so I must remove only pickguard?

Take the spring cavity off, remove the springs from the tremolo. Move the tremolo out of the way (strings still on) and then take off the pick guard and work from there.

You can also just unscrew the pickguard, dive the trem, and quickly pull the set out saves SO much more time

Thanks Blank, but I have not understand too much.
1) Unscrew pickguard --->ok
2) Dive the tremolo ----->What means? There is a way to remove tremolo without remove its springs as suggested by Lone Phantom?

I just dive it until the strings are totally slack, and then slip the pickguard. I find that easier than pulling the strings out and then putting it back in.

Theres no need to pull of strings using the method I mentioned. You can leave them at pitch. The method blank listed is risky because you are leaving all the tension which could spring back to place while removing the pickguard. You could break something.

Are you Lone?
The way to proceed remove tremolo is the same?
Cords must be slacked before remove tremolo?

If you are the author of the video congratulation for great music.

Re: RG350dx 2012 disassembling

If you are removing the tremolo, leave them clamped at the nut and just pull the tremolo out after you take out the springs in back of the guitar

Yes that's me. And by cords do you mean strings? No you don't need to loosen the strings.
