Hello Jemsiters, whats happening? I'm pretty new to jemsite, but have been researching and decided on an RG guitar upgrade, and here she is:
she's an RG470 from '01 i think
now, I've been playing with it for a good month now, learning a couple "virtuoso" style songs (Steve Vai's K'm-Pee-Du-Wee and Glasgow Kiss from John Petrucci's new solo album) and i am throughly disappointed in the v7/v8 stock pickups and am looking to go for a Dimarzio upgrade.
Now i have no clue as to what i want, as Dimarzio seems to steel at least 30 different pickups altogether, and i really have no way of knowing what is right for me. i was thinking i would just go with a pair of Evolutions because Ibanez stocks jems with em so why not?
i Also know that the lo-trs trem on it is an accident waiting to happen, but I'm not having any trouble so far with it, and it seems to be biting into my string ends fairly well so far, but if it gives me any trouble I'll upgrade to an OFR in a snap
now, I'll probably get the option for the colored pickups, any nifty suggestions for colors? i was thinking either the light blue, purple, or green.
