    I have the original bridge and neck DiMarzio Blaze humbuckers (green/yellow color combo), the yellow knobs and pink switch tip and the pickguard. The pickguard has plenty of light pick scratches on it, but the pickups and knobs are clean, no wear or damage of any kind. I may sell them...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Hey all, i got serious problems with excess hum/buzz with my UV! Firstly i suspect the P/U'S have gone microphonic as they having been screaming at me on low gain settings. However since i re-potted them that side of it has subsided. Now i've got what i think is a grounding problem as i just...

    Hey everyone i need some help and advice! My Universe has been screaming feedback at me on the distorted settings even when the gain on my preamp is set moderately low. I should add that this does not seem to be the case with my other Jems using the same settings. Ok so here's the deal...

    Hi everyone, This is my new Ibanez since a couple af weeks. The pickups are original ones and i think that it's v78 and v77. But the definition is not good for me when i use overdrive and distortion from my ME-8 (even when a DRIVE very low) ! I mean, even my original js100 sounds better...

    I tried to use the search but received approx. 500 results of something completely different i'm looking for so I created a new thread. I'm about to buy a pickup to the bridge position and one guy offered the one in the title. I checked DiMarzio's website and it didn't exist there, so far i...

    Hello, just got me a universe 777 and love the Blaze pickups on it. I have an RG 1570 with an Evo in the bridge and decided to switch that out to a Steve's Special. I've been hearing that the Steve's Special is the closest to the Blaze. Would it sound almost the same if I put the Steve's Special...

    I've had this for a half year or so now, originally purchased it as a template for my ultimate 7 string, in which i planned to put some dimarzio evolutions in alas my funds did not permit this, and my interest for the 7 string has faded, much happier with my RG550 that said, this is THE 7...

    Hi guys I'm in love with my PAF Pro's and being a Dimarzio nut I would like to install something similar in a 7 string I will be getting soon. I've searched the Dimarzio site and they only have the standard PAF 7 string pups, not PAF Pro. Can anyone advise as to which Dimarzio closely...

    It went from smooth to a little tight to seized in less than a minute today. It was fine before that. I have taken the pot out to see if maybe the knob was caught on the body, but it still wouldn't turn. I held the treaded shaft in pliers and tried to turn the top with a screwdriver but it...

    I'm debating whether or not I should put new pickups in my stock rg7420. And if so, which pickups should I get for it? I want a good metal tone that is clear, with crisp chords, and a smooth lead, but without that shrill, harsh, trebly, hot tone. Should I do that or just try to sell/get rid...

    I played a RG7321 today at GC. It was the indo model. Then I went and bought one off of craigslist locally for $200. Then I noticed the model I have is Korean. Is there a difference in materials or components? I can't really notice anything. Both guitars play nice.
