Re: RG 520 - Dimarzio

Just ordered PAF Pro & Fred. Will get it by the end of the month. Let's see what it sounds like!!

Re: RG 520 - Dimarzio

Got the New Pickup's on my trip to US(***************), went to a tech in Denmark St. to get them installed, to my utter dissapointment only one coil on the Fred is working.

I contacted DiMarzio who told me to ship it to them(return postage paid) & they will replace it but since I'm in UK, the cost of shipping is equal to the cost of getting a new pup. I wish they checked their products before shipping them.

Does anyone know a turnaround to this problem?

I can't believe Dimarzio is putting you through that much hassle. I would call them and have them send you a new pickup first and then you can send them the bad one. Another solution would be for them to authorize you to go to a dealer in your area for a swap.

Thanks Jimmy!!

That seems to be a great idea. Lemme see if I can persuade them to do so.

Re: RG 520 - Dimarzio

exchanged a few mails with the DiMarzio guys. The only thing that they are willing to do is replace it if I pay return postage from UK.

Guess I'll have to buy a new one.
