    Hi everybody. I'm searching for a good ibanez guitar for a good price. I've found a second hand s540 FM Custom for 400 euros. I don't really know the price of a new s540, but it seems nice. How's the bridge and the sound? Here are the photos...

    I'm just wondering what Dimarzio pups you guys have in your strats, both humbuckers and singles, and how do you like them?

    Gday all I won this ibanez body on the bay with a fun bit of artwork on it as you can see. I need someone to help with what I need to set it up for playing. I have a spare Rg550 DY neck with pyramid inlays being installed right now by ET-guitars, and I will buy Dimarzios, maybe in yellow...

    Anyone think they should start doing it?? like carvin has it. so i was thinking if you could like get pickgaurds with various dimarzio pups along with a pickgaurd color of your choice. you could even choose style, like HSH, SSS, or SSH. i think it would be cool. what do you guys think?

    I have 2 rg470s that have served me pretty well gigging. I use the whammy bar extensively and experience lack of trem tunining stability. So, I researched this forum (thank you to all) and other sources extensively; I considered 1570s, 2570s, and 8570s, and so far, I've bought on 570. I've...

    Well I picked up a purple S 470 thursday. The guitar is absolutely mint. It was being sold as used for $429.00. The funny thing is, like I said before, there isn't a mark on it. No fret wear, no fading of the cosmo black ZR trem or tuners, not a mark on the body. The only small thing were a few...

    I'm in the process of evaluating my RG470s for upgrade to either better -performing 470s versus used 570s versus new 1570/2570s. I've spent some tech money ($125) on 470 tweaking. Then yesterday, I saw this scratched Warwick Alien acoustic bass that blew me away with its projection and other...

    Just wondering if there are any Carvin fans in here? I think they make some of the best quality guitars and especially necks around. To this day my Bolt Plus guitar has the best playing/feeling neck i`ve ever seen. Any love for Carvin?

    Hey guys, I have a ESP LTD EC-1000. Thinking of changing the EMGs for PAF Pros, anyone know how this will sound? I used to have PAF Pros in an alder bodied super strat I have and loved the sound then, but obviously a les paul will sound a little different! Cheers Joe

    I'm looking at at guitar that has direct mounted Duncan in it which I may want to put direct mount Dimarzios in. Because Duncan and Dimarzio pups have slightly different mounting tabs, I'm not sure if Dimarzios will just drop right in. If you have any info on the subject, I'd appreciate it you...

    I want to change the original EVO's. I am trying to get a very saturated, yet clear, gain tone that I can get George Lynch style tone with. Also some very high gain "death metal" type rhythm tone. Yeah yeah, wrong guitar etc..... I was thinking Screamin' Demon or maybe EVO II? Amplification...

    Hi guys, i have a 98 Jem7vwh and the bridge evolution pickup is sounding very thin. I've only noticed it recently because for the last few years i've been playing a strat as my main guitar. It is especially noticable when compared to my RG520 which has evo bridge and neck pickups upgrades...

    Hey guys. Dug out my RG 470 (Japan model) from 1999 and put in all 3 new evolution pickups. Started with the bridge evo 1, then added the ISCV2 in mid, and finally the evo neck in neck position. These installs where done on three different dates. The evo 1 in bridge installed excellent, no...

    Well I saw this listed in his equipment on the Dragonforce website, and he is playing it on tour. So he is not trying to hide it. So I googled for some pics.:) Note the grip on the upper horn and the scalloped last few frets. It's almost like an S and a Jem offspring.:) I'm trying to figure...

    I've just scored an absolutely stunning (imho) JCustom RG9570 from a fellow Jemsiter 8) (big thanks dude!) Now I'm thinking of putting in some white, cream or maybe blue pickups into this beauty. I love the ToneZone and AirNorton combination but hate the BlueVelvet pickups so was thinking of...
