Re: Opinions on the DiMarzio IBZ's??
I like the ones in my RG2570. They have a nice tone to them but they are a bit hot for my taste.
Oddly enough, I did the magnet swap in the V7 and V8 in my 1550 and love them, better than the Evos in my RG550 and the DiMarzio/IBZ in my RG2570.
I was thinking of picking up some Vs to do the mod with and put them in those guitars as well... but I digress.
The DiMarzio/IBZ are great for really hard rock and metal, but they lose something when you try to clean them up, in my opinion. I end up saving the 2570 for the heavier stuff and go with my 550 or 1550 for everything else.
I do have my 550 wired like a 'special' 520 though, so I have a neck single coil when I need it... I might try that wiring with the D/IBZ pups and let you know what I find.
