  1. Pickups & wiring
    I hope someone out there can help, I need a wiring diagram for an RGA 32. I am resurrecting this guitar as it was in a sorry state when I got it; sanded to death, no bridge etc. If it had passive pickups it would be straightforward but it has the 3v loz pickups (more wires than I am used to)...
  2. Classified Ads: Guitars and Gear
    2009 Les Paul Studio, ebony gloss nitrocellulose finish, in very good condition. Mahogany body and neck with a maple top. A pre-raid guitar with a solid rosewood board-- not the laminates or alternative woods they are putting on their necks these days. Everything is stock-- TOM bridge, Gibson...
  3. Off-topic / Miscellaneous
    On the 23rd September 2009, Sydney Australia experienced an event that we had not experienced before, well, not in my lifetime. On the 23rd of September 2009 I woke to something I had never seen before in my life. It scared me to say the least. My alarm went off at it's normal time of...

    I just noticed the 2009 models are equipped with ibanez active pickups and the model RGA42/FM has an active EQ toggle switch. What does it exactly do? If I don't like the pickups, do I have to use active ones too?

    Be sure to check them out if you haven't yet. S with camphor tree body SV with garahaku finish Seven string Soundgear bass I really like the S. It's made of beautiful wood. But I'm not so sure about the silver pieces they've put on the body. I love the inlays, though. :) I'm not too fond of...

    Three have just gone up on Ikebe: http://www.ikebe-gakki.com/search_fair.php?fairId=48 - available in red, black or purple - looks the same as last year's RG8470Z but with a True Velvet instead of Blue Velvet middle pickup (couldn't tell you the difference as I always go for H-H setups) - not...

    I thought i caught a glance of it in the new xiphos ad the other day.... i think it's in the new guitar world. 27 frets,dual rail neck pickup,d-activator bridge p/u. any predictions? and why couldn't it be like the old one? Retro sales these days.

    My sincere apologies if this is old news but I thought it wouldn't hurt just in case. As 2009 came round, Jemsite started up with pictures and talk of the new lineup of guitars. Most of these mentioned were the new RGs with their new, non-black colours. But here in Australia, it seems that's...

    If any of you guys have seen Ibanez posted some of their new 2009 models here: www.ibanez.co.jp/products/eg_top09.php?area_id=4&year=2009&cat_id=1 I was wondering if you guys knew which models will be available in the U.S. because I have seen some pretty cool models some of the European Ibanez...

    No more guessing, just the goods! In a nutshell: Some crazy S. and some less crazy S. A lot of somewhat new models, probably some only for US and some only for EU/JP, After a boring JEMFX, this is more like it: The RG3570Z Kinda like last year's RG2570Z, but with DiMarzio AN,BV,TZ, Super...

    Hey! 6 weeks from Xmas time. It's probably time to discuss what kind of new Ibanez will be available for our shopping carts in January! So, who has information on what is going on in Fujigen? I personnally think, given the amount of new models in 2008, that 2009 should be pretty calm.
