  1. Pickups & wiring
    Looking to put an HFH in the neck of my 505, thinking about putting a Fred in the bridge to match with it. I want a Strat sort of sound with a bit more balls in the bridge but not a high output pickup (which I mostly hate except for one or two). So what do we think, anyone have a basswood RG...

    If so when, and which models? I’d love to get my hands on one!
  3. Pickups & wiring
    I have a RG470 with the original V7 on the neck and a DiMarzio Super Distortion for bridge. I really don't dislike the V7 pickup, but I want to change it with something better and maybe slightly higher output. I have an Air Norton (the JP Custom version) and D-Sonic on a cheaper RG that I don't...
  4. Archived Topics and Common Questions
    I have recently bought a ‘99 UV777BK. Looking at the catalog I have found some info about this model and other Jem models that I would like to get clarified by any expert: 1. Searching on the web, most UV777BK models have silver pole pieces; mine and the pics found on the catalogs are black...

    I have what I think is an RG360DX 10+ years old, but can't remember why I think that other than trawling through the ibanez.wikia site and going off looks :) Thing is, I can't check the serial number on the neck because it has been replaced with an unbranded one. So if i said it's Black HSH...
  6. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys, I have an RG1570 Prestige Ibanez, Basswood body with a trem, tremol-no, maple neck and rosewood fretboard. I'm looking to replace the Neck and Bridge pickups. I'd like something similar to Tony Rombolas tone (Godsmack) in "keep away" Link: Or: I love that grind. Really I will...

    Ibanez prestige guitars are great. Look forward to owning more in the near future. Here's a quick shot of my trio. Each sounds different.
  8. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I just bought this from Perle: It's made of basswood. To be honest, I have no idea how to finish it. I would like to do the multi-color scheme of the original JPM model, but I don't know how to go about painting it. I was also thinking about staining the wood different colors, but again, I...
  9. Pickups & wiring
    Hey, So I haven't been on here in AGES. Doesn't seem like much has changed :') I'm in the market for some new pickups for my RG. Has a basswood body, maple neck, maple board.. And I'm playing through a Peavey 5150. The tone I'm after is basically that classic 80's hair metal kinda tone...

    Hi guys, Long time since I last posted. I have an old 1993 RG470 with an edge tremolo that plays really nice but I'm not very keen on the guitar color. I've always liked natural finishes and I was thinking it might look really cool on this one. Does anyone have any photos of basswood...
  11. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys, Just got an RG652FX with a basswood body. Love the playability of this guitar. MIJ does it again! I would like however to swap out the Dimarzios that came with it. I want a fuller thicker tone. I feel it's kinda thin sounding. My other axe has EMG james Hetfields. While I like EMGs...

    Hey, Guys. I have a custom fireman body for sale. This was made by Nate over at Perleguitars in Chicago, IL. This is made from basswood. Routed for single coils and a square heel neck. The trem route is for edge/lo-pro edge style trems. Yes, it is signed by Steve Vai. It was painted by the...

    The V7 it's normal spaced, alignment with poles isn't perfect, but works well, first string at the center of the pole, 6th string at the outer border of the pole, but inside.

    Just bought a new Jem body and not sure what the wood is. Can someone please tell me? Either 3 or 4 piece.
  16. Pickups & wiring
    ok.... so im making my own pickups thread, after 6 months of furious searching, and searching, and searching... i'll start off with the questions from the sticky i found so I can be as thorough as possible: 1. What type of music do you like? Mostly I'm into metal, heavy metal...
  17. Pickups & wiring
    Ok, so as some have probably seen, I got an Ibanez 540r H-S-S recently. It's an amazing guitar, but I am not a big fan of the bridge pickup and decided to swap it out for something else. The distorted sounds are good and clear, but I find it really lacking in harmonics that I use all the time. I...
  18. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hey..., I was just wondering if Steve's legendary EVO really had an alder body and not a Basswood one as I thought pretty much all Jems (barring the 20th anv)were Basswood. So, is EVO really an alder body and, if it is, does anyone know why?
  19. Pickups & wiring
    Hey there forum. I've been thinking about swapping the stock pickups in my RG1570 but since it's my first real guitar, I know close to nothing about pickups. I was going to get SD Invaders since I play heavy rock/metal mostly, but I read a lot about how bad they sound on Basswood bodies (too...
