  2. Pickups & wiring
    Im looking to buy a pick up for my bridge that has good clarity for sweeping but also good distortion for shredding and rhythms Any ideas?
  3. Pickups & wiring
    So im looking into some new pups for my S470DXQM, i really dont know the faintest about them. A local music shop is selling dizmarzios and if you buy 3 pickups, you get 20% off the total price, so i thought it might be a good time to look into them. I want a nice, high output bridge humbucker...

    Hi there, I've finally got my schematics etc and about the install my DiMarzios, BUT I wanted to coil tap all my pickups (especially my bridge humbucker). So I can't use one SPDT Mini switch for all three pickups (H/S/S - technically H/H/H) but I found this for One Mini toggle...
  5. Pickups & wiring
    hey im just wondering i have this RG w/ H-S-H pickups configuration of course w/ a typical 5-way selector switch can i change the 5-way into a 3-way? so that the bridge position will have the bridge humbucker active, the middle position will have the singlecoil active, and the neck position...

    OK I've started in a project i've been meaning to get underway for a while now, I got an RG body off evil bay to mod into a shred machine. I'm not sure what sort of body it is but looks like an RG570 with AANJ, It's going to be stripped and painted eye burning 80's green. I'll get a maple neck...

    :smile: Just saw one on his forum. The guy who purchased it, posted a few pics of of his black Fender Eric Johnson signiture Strat. I dont know if was the quality of the pictures or did this guy well-used his NEW guitar. Lot of fine scratches in the clear it seemed to me. Anyway, what a...

    Has anyone tried a blaze custom pickup? I'm going to try one in my 7620 and was wondering how it compares to the Blaze, TZ7, Evo, etc. Also, do dimarzio 7 string pickups come with the foam spacer sticky things that go on the bottom of the pickup? Any help much appreciated.
  10. Pickups & wiring

    i'm a indie/emo artist who finds some guilty pleasure in hardcore punk. right now i'm playin my standard strat and want to to some upgrading. i want something with a warm vintage sound that can still be crunchy. it was suggested i try a telecaster neck with a gibson burstbucker 2 at the bridge...

    Yes, I realize this is another Sustainer post but I looked through quite a few and didn't see these questions answered. My basic goal is to have a guitar with a Sustainer system of some sort with standard 5-way switching - H-S-?. Ideally the '?' would be a mini-humbucker but I'm open to other...

    Hey all. Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I finally got around to buying a Jem7VWH. I've been drooling at the one in the shop for a few months, and I finally got sick of just watching it. I think it'll like it's new home. Anyway, it's a brand new VWH, that was listed for $2799. It was...

    I will appreciate your comments about this guitars, if possible for the Standard with Mahogany Body.
  15. Pickups & wiring
    Do you think there is realitively a sound difference in an angled bridge humbucker vs a parallel one? As just a "theory" I think it actually brightens it up alittle ,but not very.The higher strings get alittle more punch as ( / ) and the lows visa versa as ( \ ). Leaving the parallel ( | ) being...

    I recently installed a DiMarzio Fast Track2 in the neck position of my Tele along with a GFS Lil' Hot Puncher in the bridge. I used this diagram: http://www.dimarzio.com/Text/Wiring/TwoHumbuckers5WayMultiple.pdf From Dimarzio's website. The positions are supposed to be: 1 - Neck Humbucking, 2...

    So I just finished wiring a VLX 91 5-way switch into my Maxxas. I used to have push/pulls for coil taps but I thought this was a better way, since I could preset which coils I wanted. Here's what I have now: 1-Neck humbucker 2-Neck single coil-neck side 3-Both humbuckers 4-Both single...

    ....i can only play my jem in the bridge position. Is this right??? I thought for sure that I could use the driver with any pickup, not just the bridge. he said that the sustainer driver (which is part of the neck pickup) and the neck pickup cannot be used simoultaneously.
  19. Pickups & wiring
    Hi there, Can somebody tell me the different in tone between coil tapping and parallel? I'm using a 2 hum configuration and a 5 way switch. Thinking of adding a push pull coil tap and keeping the 5 way. Problem is, I don't know if there is enough of a tonal difference to do that, for all I...

    Hi guys, I'm currently in the process of converting a Strat-type guitar into something similar to an Ibanez RG. It won't be an exact copy, because it can't, but I won't say much more, it's going to be a surprise! I was thinking of painting it Grey Nickel like they do on the RG570. I'm...
