RG270 HSH Neck+Bridge wiring options
I'm going to state this here & now: I'm pretty much new to guitar. I've wanted to play pretty much my whole life as my dad is a musician, but anyway; onward.
I just got my first guitar, an RG270. My goal as of now is to practice up enough to be able to bash out some Buzzsaw Swedish Death Metal ala Nihilist. I've been reading non-stop on guitars & the electrical aspects. I want to smack 2 EMG 81s in there. 1 in the neck & 1 in the bridge. I'll leave the Powersound single in the middle for now.
To explain what the "Swedish Buzzsaw" tone is: Basically extreme gain, lotsa lows & highs. You can listen to Entombed - Left Hand Path to get the general idea.
With that said - What are your opinions on optimal pickup settings to achieve a bright, grinding sound rather than a muddy, bassy one?
What are the differences between having both Neck+Bridge (4) active in parallel to, say, tapping them? I'm a little overwhelmed right now.
I originally wanted to get a Neck & Bridge Humbucker active together, but would this be futile in lieu of other options?
I haven't even opened up my guitar yet, but I have my model's wiring diagram saved. If someone could direct me to some helpful wiring tutorials or something of the like, that would be great.
Thanx for taking the time to read/reply.
Also: I know this is a forum for high-end models, but the official Ibanez forum isn't sending me verification e-mails.
