  1. 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...

    Mmmm i love the smell of Aqua Net in the morning.... I've always loved this solo, but just now learned it! Its a hoot. Vitto was a really creative tapper for sure. Good ****. Playing my swirled Ibanez RG7421 here with the good ol' Dimarzio D Sonic 7 in the bridge. I truly adore the sound of that...
  3. Pickups & wiring
    Hi guys! Just bought a '92 ibanez S Custom Shop Series (not really a custom guitar just a marketing idea). For the neck i'll go for a liquifire that's a wonderful neck pickup IMO. But my problem is this: The bridge pickup! I need something ballsy and chuggy with an enough focused attack for...

    Just dropped one into my 7620, and while it is a good pickup, particularly for cleans, it just isn't my thing, so I'm looking for something with more output like a D Activator 7 or x2n7. Got references on sevenstring, and one here :)
  6. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Woohoo! Never had an Ibanez before, and I think I may be a convert. I've had a few guitars before, a Gibson Les Paul Standard, an ESP EC-1000, an ESP H-1001, and I currently own an ESP Standard Horizon NTII, and Fender Tele Deluxe 72 Reissue. This thing feels better than my ESP Standard, and it...
  7. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey guys! I'm a new Ibanez convert and have just bought an S420 that's on it's way (though I'll always love my ESP Horizon... sorry!). I have played a few Ibanez's before and like many others am not the biggest fan of the INF pickups so I went ahead and ordered a set of the F-spaced D-sonic...

    Got a new Alder guitar, and was looking at both of these. Which one is tighter in the bass, and brighter, with a good mix of both high/low mids?
  11. Pickups & wiring
    Which one has good crunch for rhythm, and good high mids for leads?
  12. Pickups & wiring
    Hi There! I got this Ibanez RG2550 as my main axe and i'm waiting to trade my ESP EC-500 to RG550. Now i got those dmz/ibz stock pickups(very very lame in every level compared to my ex-washburns Distortion/59 set) in my RG and i want more "oomph, like Gilbert says it" and i'm going to get a...

  16. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, all... So I recently bought an RG2550z Prestige model. So far, I'm fairly happy with it. I can probably tweek the setup a little more for playability, but overall, VERY happy. Another thing I'd like to change is the pups. I'd like a little more output, better harmonics, and (at the bridge...

    Joki; Breed Neck, D-Sonic and Ibanez C2 middle.
  18. Pickups & wiring
    I showed my roomie the D sonic and he says its basically that. Having never heard a "lipstick" pickup, I would never know. Any thoughts on it. Also, single coil humbuckers are garbage (according to him). Any comments would be lovely for my next little tech debate with him :D. I've never heard a...
