  1. Pickups & wiring
    On my RG550, the pickups are mounted to the scratchplate.  Is it worth moving them to a direct body mount, for a bit more "meatiness"?

    I know many loyal Jem players believe putting EMG's in a Jem is unheard of and somewhat sacreligious :sarcasm: Ive given it a shot though, trying an EMG 81 and an 85 out in the bridge position of my DBK.  Turns out the 85 sounds incredibly smooth, and has a great thick tone that I fell in love...
  3. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    OK, so noone really talks much about them, but seeing as the evo's are going from the BSB I thought it was time to actually think about getting a set of duncans, especially as I realised that most of the players (read Dave Murray, Marty Friedman (also slash) and others) who's tone I like use...

    I hope this hasn't been done to death, because I did a search of the forum and couldn't find it. I'd like to know what you guys really think of the V7 & V8 pickups. I've read people here and on harmony-central, some of whom say "They're great, don't switch", and others who say "They're crap"...

    Ive got an EMG select single coil and humbucker that i put in my ibanez, but some of the split positions sound funny. its possible the pickup just wasnt meant to be split, but does anyone know what positions are for what on the 5 way switch? thanks!
  6. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I luv Steve Vai, and i wanna get a JEM, but one thing i'm not sure about is wether i should get a JEM with Breed pickups or Evolution pickups. Besides Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Yngwie Malmsteen, i play alot of hardcore bands like Slayer that demand a very hot pickup. I want the hottest pickup...

    What Seymour Duncan Humbuckers do you all like?  Good, bad experiences with them? I was just interested in picking up a Duncan Custom (SH-5) pickup for my fender strats bridge position.  I currently have  Duncan Distortion in there, and It just isnt articulate enough for me.  It breaks up a...

    Ok... so my friend is coming from the States, and i'm thinking about asking to bring a humbucker... I'll use it for my strat, but as soon as get an RG, i'll move the pickup to it... So it has to be F-spaced... Will a Fspaced work on a normal trem guitar like a strat? I'm considering a dimarzio...

    hello out there. i was wondering what your guys' take is on dimarzio pickups. the evolutions (steve vai model) in particular. i have a gibson sg with a seymour duncan jb pickup in the bridge, and i'm pretty happy with the tone..except i want some more harmonic overtones and a tighter low end. do...
  10. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Just wondering what are good high output 7 string pickups. I'm more focused toward a "metal" tone on it so I'm checking at either an Evolution7 or some Seymour Duncan stuff (an Invader pehaps?). I'm also considering going for an EMG 707 as I'll end up installing one in the bridge. And yes, I...

    I'm looking for personal suggestions on this one... I want to install either an EMG-707 active pickup (the model used by Dino Cazares of Fear Factory) or a Seymour Duncan Distorion pickup in the bridge position on my RG7620. Has anyone had experience with either of these? Which would you...

    Hi! I'm new to the Jemsite community, but I'm a long-time Ibanez supporter and player. I just recently got a 1998 Ibanez RG7620. I was able to score a sweet deal on it and it's in EXCELLENT shape! Everything seems to be setup correctly, however I had a few questions on what might be the best...

    Now I know most of you think none! or cheap rogue or something like that . Not true today (about an hour ago) I picked up a 98 Ibanez rg7620 in navy blue with the uv1000 case all in great shape for $246.00!! It was at this pawn shop that no one ever goes to because they are working on the...

    So i was out looking at guitars the other day (go figure). Seven-string guitars have intrigued me for a while, and while i'm fairly certain i could make use of the extended range in my music, i don't really want to lay out a huge pile of cash to see if i like it enough to dedicate myself to...

    I'm asking for advice on this forum because this seems to be the meeting ground for displaced shredders. Just purchased a nice Hamer guitar. Not a JEM, but looks and feels a lot like a high end Ibanez. Mahogany body, 24 fret maple/rosewood neck, H-S-H, and a Floyd. It's one of the most...

    Does anyone have any suggestions for my Ibanez PL1770?   My main guitar is a PRS CE22 with a mahogony body and a maple top.  It has Dragon pickups in it.  I would like my Ibanez to be my backup but since I started using the PRS, the bridge humbucker on the Ibanez(stock) seems really weak.  I...
