I dont quite understand the first question.

As for changing them, I have a RG1570 which comes with those pickups and they are not bad at all. I am not changing them for the time being.

IMHO V7,V8,S1 are crap pups...S1 is less crappy though... very weak sustain in V7 and lotsa boom in V8...i have a RG470 which had these same pickups...so i replaced bridge one with EVO. it rocks now ! \m/

the pickups aren't all that bad, but i changed the bridge to an x2n, and plan on changing the neck sometime when i'm not so lazy about soldering. the s1 is pretty good, for it's use. i generally only use the bridge, middle+neck, and neck positions, and sometimes neck with tone rolled off all the way.

Re: The ibanez v7,v8 and s1

generally, i use V8 for metal-ish sounds, rock, progressive, anything that needs distortion, and i use V7 for the soloing parts, scale runs, sweep picking, etc etc. The S1 is rarely used, but it's the best for clean sounds, maybe blues. But they're very weak pups, i'm hoping that some day i'll be able to get some evo's for my 550...

I had them in an RG570, and frankly couldn't get on with them.

The only position that made any kind of good sound was 4 (single and bridge). The S1 is the best of the three, and for a bland single coil to mix with humbuckers it was OK. IMHO of course.

Actually, if you disconnect the tone pot from the whole circuit, these pups open up quite a bit. They have more volume without it, and the tone is almost like a FRED. I really didn't like these pups untill I did this, and I was going to junk them after I had the EVO's put in, but I'm going to use them for a project guitar that I'm putting together. Its a Crappy Samick/Valley Arts, with this(Factory) burnt orange(YUUUUK!) paint job. I think they'll sound pretty good in there.
