Re: What type of pickup selector switch for an RG550?

Re: Rg550 genesis,would you buy?what color?

Re: Low and high output pickups

I play mostly classic rock/metal and indie rock, so I generally prefer low to medium output pickups. They tend to be less compressed and have a richer, less gainy sound, and are easier for me to...

Re: Which locking tuners will fit an RG 421?

I generally check and...

Re: Clueless about pickups but don't like my current one

Pickups are really subjective, try to watch as many video reviews as possible before making a decision. Even if you end up wanting to change it laster it isn't too terribly hard. Regarding the...

Re: Pickups for best/easiest artificial harmonics?
