    It pains me to sell, what is a one-of-a-kind Ibanez RG2020X It started life as a normal RG2020X, and when the body was beat up a little too much, I decided to look for help in making a guitar more like what I would have liked to seen Ibanez make. With some insider help, I was able to enlist the...

    I have decided that i want to buy something more classic like a strat. After a lesson at UT one day i wondered around Knoxville looking at Strats until i found a G and L dealer. The G and L Legacy (strat) is alittle cheaper and much more customizable (they let you choose your pickguard, color...

    hi, i guess this is kind of a two part question. 1) What is the main different between the V7 and V8 pickups? Can you put the V8 in the neck position? Should you? 2) The reason is, i plan on getting a more powerful bridge pickup, and am wondering if i can move the V8 up to the neck if it...

    Well i've recently acquired this alder H-H soloist that came stock with EMG 81 and 85 and they're really starting to get on my nerves. Always that little gain boost, the compression and subtle lack of note deffinition is so annoying. And cleans are just a joke on these things. So I guess what im...

    I have just upgraded my RG370MH to RG520 type specs. Pickups have been changed to PAF Pros neck and bridge. Additionally I have replaced the TRSII bridge with a Edge. Two questions: why do the pickups (PAF Pros) sound really thin in the 2nd and 4th positions - how do I fix the problem, and...

    I want to sell my Dimarzio IBZ Neck and Bridge pickups. pulled from a Ibanez RG2550, pickups have been used for about 6 months and then were placed in a Dimarzio case. Never been touched after. In great condition and very clean. Asking for 50$ Canadian (That's 49$ USD according to XE.com)...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I'm getting ready to replace the pickups in my 2003 PGM30 in the next week or so. So far the best option I've come up with is to put PAF Pros in the bridge and neck, and possibly a Fast Track 2 or something like that in the middle. The PGM30 is already a very trebly (is that a word?) guitar so I...

    I was in a store yesterday and picked up a 2610 to play. I was playing it for a few minutes, then looked at the tag - let's just say, it's on clearance! Obviously, it's a left-over '07 but I looked it over, expecting it to be beat to hell, but it's not. It's like new, no dings, chips, gouges...

    I decided on a Lapis Blue SZ520QM from AMS, since the price was right. However, I believe it needs some improvements, and falls somewhat short in some areas: The pick-ups sound "decent", but very bright. I need some suggestions on a good set to warm up the tone a little. I thought of the...

    Hi, I was looking at Rich' gallery section and I saw this, imo, awesome gold J-custom with birds! :o Be sure to check it out, if you haven't already. http://www.ibanezrules.com/images/gallery/rggold2.jpg Does anybody know anything more about this guitar? Was it some kind of anniversary model...

    So i got the pickups and installed them on my rg550. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The breed neck is probably the best neck pickup ever made. Every note can be heard clearly, and it has such a sweet tone. Not too dark and very smooth. The evo2 isnt a good match for a breed neck, i have to say. When i...

    So they got one of these in at the fulcrum of musical evil, merry olde guitar center. It's $400, and I almost bought one tonight. Before I shelled out the cash, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this particular guitar. Mahogany body, set neck. The one I played seemed to have great...

    I'm trying to decide in between Steve's Special and D-Sonic for a Drop C tuned RG320. I'm looking for a NOT STERILE sound, as clear as posible, I want to get rid of the muddiness I get with the infinity pups. Styles I'm playing go from Nu rock (mainly rythm work) to metal-core (lots and lots of...

    I've got a year old 7VWH and there are so many little details that need to be worked out... one of my concerns is the neck pickup is dead... zero harmonics and almost no bite which is totally the opposite of their description, the pinched and tapped harmonics also aren't very strong could this...

    I'm considering replacing the stock pickups in my RG520QS with the DiMarzio D-Activator Neck & Bridge pickups and replacing the 5-way with the DiMarzio multipole 5 way per the wiring instructions on their website. Here's my question. I'm interested in throwing in a phase reversal switch on the...

    I have a 70's reissue strat (MIM) with a birdseye maple neck on it from warmoth. I have the Dimarzio YJM pup in the neck position and the tone is just a devastating experience. I'm really into that kind of tone, ...real woody, phaaaat, smooth. I have the Dimarzio HS-2 in the bridge and I just...
