    I've been promising to get this thread going for a while now, so here is a start. Many of us have guitars that we love, but wish they had direct mount pickups. My RG760 is one of them, but any guitar with pickup ring or pickguard mounted pickups can be converted to direct mount. My process is...

    Hello all, I am doing my first Jem project. I am going to direct mount the pickups right into the wood. However I want to be able to adjust the height. Does anyone know of any diagrams pictures or videos on how to do this. I know it is done on the new black FP Jem,but I can't find any info on...

    I think I'm going to give it a try at my sam ash. They look sooo nice. Dont know which color though.......I'd have to see them in person. I'm sure its somewhere here but does anyone know exactly how much they will be(I heard it will be a bit more expensive than the RG550), and also when you can...

    Guys, I would like to upgrade my RG570 with a new paint job. I'm pretty sure the look I want, but a bit of advice always(?) helps! I'm going for a design like the art of Piet Mondrian (or the Studio Line range of '80s hair products by l'Oreal as my friend pointed out!) Here's the artwork: This...

    Anyone excited about this model? I really don't know much about Herman Li but this guitar has some kickass features. It's probably the best of the 08' line up IMHO.... :)

    Hi guys. I took the neck of from my '92 RG750 and at my surprise the stamp on the body says NRG-550. Now the second 5 is hand written. I'm not the first owner so WTH!

    A guy is selling a RG2620 and it has a deep blue kinda top with white binding around. Couldnt find anything about em, only some scattered pics on google, but why are the ones sold now in that not good looking weird boxpattern in gray or something. Are the deep blue top ones rare or something...

    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...

    199x series RG 570 - can't find it in catalogs! Hey guys, I was just reminiscing by going through the old Ibanez catalogs on Rich's website and I found something strange. My 570 doesn't appear to be in any catalogs. The only ones it appears in 91, 92 show it as having an Edge bridge, and all...

    I'm looking at RGs with a trem, an AANJ, maple board and direct mount pickups and stumbled across this: http://ibanezregister.com/cpg148/thumbnails.php?album=2079 If it wasn't pink, this would be pretty much EXACTLY what I'm looking for since it has sharkfins, no pickguard and H/H configuration...

  18. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I was wondering if any you know what the JEM, UV or even JS Prototypes became ? There are a few that are known to be in proud owners' hands but many other for which apparently there is no traces left. At that time, the few that are know from my side are : * JEM GMC : hold by a US Jemsite...
  19. Pickups & wiring
    I wonder whether any of you can kindly advise me on your opinions of both the pros and cons of fitting humbucker pickups to guitar bodies using pickup surrounds or direct mounting them. I cannot appreciate that there would be much advantage to the sound by direct mounting if the only contact...

    Like the title says I'm looking for an AANJ RG550 body to do a complete refinish on. I don't need any hardware. (unless you'd happen to have the neck mounting screws and ferrules.) Condition isn't that important as long as there aren't any huge chunks missing. I'd also be interested in an...
