    I hate sharp pick attack, so I've been looking at dark, smooth pickups, but I always find the neck to be too fat in comparison to the bridge. I always assumed bright pickups would be very sharp sounding, but from what I've read the paf joe actually has a very subdued, dull pick attack. Is this...

    I'm a lucky owner of a white PIA. It's my first Ibanez and I've never been a big fan of Dimarzio pickups, the Utopias in the PIA have grown on me. One trick I had to find out was for the position 2 & 4 switch settings, to get more of a spank/quack/pop sound you have to lower the volume knob and...

    Hello everyone, I've had my 2001 RG570 for a long time now and I've always had a bit of an issue with noise. The original V7 and V8 pickups have been replaced with a pair of DiMarzio The Breed pickups by the previous owner and I'm happy with how they sound. The volume pot has been wonky for...

    Hi everyone Hope i will not be banned for heresy :angel: But i added new 7 string shecter to my 2 ibanez guitars i have. I changed stock bridge pickup for Titan 7 (it's awesome :grin2: ) and thinking about neck (stock is more sucks than the bridge was). I'm thinking between Titan and...

    I recently purchased an RG560 and I want to replace the single-coil in the neck with a high gain single coil. I mostly use the EVO 1 in all of my Ibanez's shredders so I'm looking for something as close to that as I can find. I've read some good things about the Bare Knuckle Cobra and the...

    hello everyone, I own a Jem 777 30th anniversary DY, which I love until I plug it in my amp (Victory V40). For some reasons I really don't like how the pickups matches my other gear. I was wondering about replacing them with another DiMarzio set, ideally something with less output, closer to...

    Jesus, it has been several years since I visited this forum, let alone post here. Last post is from 2014! In the time in between, I took a long break from playing consistently, maybe would do it a few times a year, just focused on other stuff. But during this pandemic, I slowly began to pick...

    Hey there, folks! I might be looking for an upgrade to an Ibanez S320 (22 fret, mahogany body, ZR trem). I might load it with a .011 string set and tune it to D (whole step down), for a mean Metal machine. However, stock pickups are crap (INF1 + INF2). I had a set on my RG470 and I got rid of...

    Please help to determine the authenticity of the pickup. The original neck N2 pickup in my RG7621 has matte surface. This pickup`s coils are glossy. The baseplate looks legit. Isn`t it DIY hybrid?

    Hey, looking for either an Air Norton in F space configuration, any color, and a decent single coil for my RG2770Z project. Lacks pickups and I have a TZ, already, just need the rest. Please include a shipping price to 60452. I will consider any other good neck and middle pickups as well, but AN...

    I got a 92 RG550 in Candy Apple Red a few years ago, mainly because I always wanted one when I was a teenager. I didn't play it that much since I am more into straight ahead jazz, but I am in a fusion kick lately so I have been practicing this kind of stuff. So I decided to pull out the RG550...

    for your consideration...... Im looking to TRADE a very nice Ibanez K7 in Firespeak Blue. The guitar has Dimarzio's pickups installed. The trem has a Brass block and brass clamp installed. The control cavity has copper shielding on it. The guitar has the original Korn U-Bar. Ships in a Ibanez...

    My father and I just completed this 2-year (on and off) project. We started with an original RG3550 body, took few mm off the top, installed maple top, moved the controls around to match the JPM layout and built the neck from scratch. The pickups are DiMarzio Illuminators with a regular 3-way...

    I have a PAF Pro in the neck and a D Sonic in the bridge of one of my RGs (2 humbuckers only) with the D Sonic bar facing the neck. The tones are great, however, I have a setting where the hums are split so the inner coils are in series (ala Petrucci clean). The clean tone this way includes the...

    Hi there, I am new to the forum, but I hope that you will not ignore my message :) My question concerns the Ibanez FR365 with HS (Tone Core) pickups. I have been wondering for some time that I should upgrade those and find something better. I have decided upon buying DiMarzio Tone Zone as...

    How do these two sets of pickups compare? I currently have an RG652AHM for E standard and I'm looking at getting an RGR652AHBF for drop C.

    I have an RG652AHM with the tone zone/air norton combo but I'm looking at getting an RGR652AHBF for drop C, and it has fusion edge pickups, similar to the indonesian iron and axion label and some other prestiges. Why does ibanez put fusion edges in some of the prestiges and some have the air...

    Anyone have any thoughts when comparing the SD to the D-Activator? I'm thinking of trying a set of the D-activator. Thanks.

    Ibanez is using a new 5way switch, at least in the RG521 Genesis. I'm trying to find a good diagram to install a pair of Dimarzio (Super D and Liquifire). Dimarzio tech support wasn't even sure. Does anyone have an install done that can share the schematics? Here the original config of what...
