  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I'm a complete n00B in the ways of pickups and guitar modifications, so I need you guys here at jemsite to help me a little. Recently I decided to buy the parts I need from warmoth.com, so I could assemble the fabled "me" guitar. Now, I've made a parts list of (most) everything I will need...

    SPECIAL because it's the very first guitar that i bought BRAND NEW in UNOPENED BOX! And, well i have bought/sold at least 50 guitars so far. She plays and looks like a dream and i just love that 5 way switch. EVO/Air Norton combo on the way!!! Enjoy ;)
  3. Pickups & wiring
    Okay , I've got yet another pickup selection to make and I'll let you all do it for me.... The guitar is a Neck thru Carvin, Mahogany body, maple neck with quilted maple top. Floyd rose bridge. Currently in place are Gibson classics with gold top covers. Tone desired is a thick blend of Kirk...

    I was thinking about getting these for my RGA121 for cleaner shred tone. I normally play with a bit more midrange, and the treble cut by a fair bit. Is there something better for clearer/cleaner shred tone?
  5. Pickups & wiring
    Why do they have to make so many great pickups? Anyone else find they want another guitar, not so much for the guitar but to put another set of Dimarzios in it. I have a G&L with Dimarzio stacked Singles, a Jem w/Evos, and a RG with Breed/Paf Joe combo and I want more. I want a D-Sonic/Air...

    Looking to switch up my tones... Already have another RG w/ a Tone Zone/Air Norton combo (thanks rty13ibz98!!!) I have a F spaced black DiMarzio Tone Zone I'm looking to trade. Looking to trade for an F spaced pickup, preferrably black, but color isn't a HUGE issue... The pickup is in great...

    I have an X2n on the way for my RG550. What neck pickup do I use with this? I have an Air Norton I could use. Would it work? I mean would it be way underpowered? I pretty much use just the bridge pickup and neck pickup alone. I hardly ever use the other 3 positions on the ole 5 way. Suggestions?

    Hey everyone, I am new here. I registered back in October but I didn't activate my account until today :oops: Anyway, I figured I would start off by showing some pics of my new RGR421EXFM. Its amazing to play, I just need to figure out what pickups I'm eventually going to put in there...

    I am wanting to replace the pots and all of the wiring in my rg350dx. I have a tone zone air norton combo. What pots and caps should I buy? I was thinking of going with the 1 meg for volume. Do I need a 1 meg for the tone or will a 500k work? What about a les paul, do I need 4 or just two? Total...

    I'm building an RG and I think that i want to put in Breeds with a Blue Velvet in the middle. It's gonna be basswood with a rosewood fretboard. Do the Breeds have that "Vai-ness" that you just can't get rid of with Evos? I'm looking for a warm, thick modern PAF tone, and that seems like the...

    I don't really need to sell this, but I'm just not playing it enough. I don't like the Tone Zone/Air Norton combo which is coveted by many of you here, so you can gain from my disdain for it. Has the DiMarzio Tone Zone in the bridge and Air Norton in the neck and Blue Velvet in the middle. Has...

    God am I depressed. I was hoping it would compare to a cheaper RG series, but it just didn't. While I hated the strat knobs, the hate stopped there. The guitar had the best feel of any guitar II can remember. It made me wonder why people still buy strats. The trem was excellent and I didn't...

    I honestly never thought I'd be in the position I am. In a nutshell, I played a RG1570 yesterday, and it blows my Jackson out of the water in many ways, and yet it' about the same price... I'm strongly considering selling my Jackson and possibly a few other things and buying that amazing guitar...

    Hi guys. It's been a long time coming (since October), but I finally received my swirl JEM from Herc today! The neck hasn't arrived yet (weird USPS) but I'll post pics of it when it arrives. All I can say is that all the rumors about swirl photos are true in this case. This thing is AWESOME...

    I was thinking about routing my Mexican Strat's body so that it would handle a H/S/H combo and have Evolutions and a Blue Velvet. Do you think this would be possible, let alone reasonable? I'm also planning on getting a '50s Strat (Mexican), so that'd solve all my vintage vibe tones that I...

    Just got a 1570 and have been a long time user of strats, Les Pauls, etc. I used to dismiss these guitars somewhat, but now I can see why Gilbert, Vai, and Satch make these their weapon of choice. I have read where people have had quality issues on the newer prestige RGs. Mine is an '07 and I...

    Hello all, I'm extremely new to this Forum and don't really know any body, so please forgive my lengthy post. I’ve been in and out of playing guitar for a few years now. I have previously owned a DBK and a VWH model. I played them for about 2 years but after getting married at 21 and starting...
