Hey guys! I have my eyes set on a 'Jackson DK2M Pro Series Dinky' (check link at the bottom) and I really want to make some improvements on it once I get it. Okay, so the guitar comes with Seymour Duncan pickups (TB4 and SH2N). I was thinking of replacing them with DiMarzio pups. I play for a...
I put one of these along with a Duncan Invader bridge . The idea being with the 1 meg pot that the Invader is bass heavy and the 1 meg would open up the whole range and give more treble too. What would a push/pull tone pot do in this instance and what is recommended 500k or? I don't mess with...
Hi. WOuld someone be willing to help me out. I took out Dimarzios (Breed in bridge and Air Norton in neck) out of my Ibanez RGA 121 Prestige and sold them because i didn't liek them. i thought they were too thin and weak after trying active emgs (81 specifically). Im looking for pickups for neck...
Sorry no pic. Want to know if mine is an 87 or not what its worth etc. It's black on black and the only id is on the inside of the neck joint where it is stamped rg550. The pups look to be the stock ones prior to the V1 V2 + V7 V8. Has a rosewood fretboard. No serial #. Has the angled neck...
hi, i guess this is kind of a two part question.
1) What is the main different between the V7 and V8 pickups? Can you put the V8 in the neck position? Should you?
2) The reason is, i plan on getting a more powerful bridge pickup, and am wondering if i can move the V8 up to the neck if it...
I've always been told, can't turn down the mids on an amp if you want definition but a guy at Dimarzio told me less mids=clarity and more mids is muddy. Is this even remotely true? I was asking about it when debating on what to pair with my PAF 7 (D Sonic or Blaze Bridge) and the guy told me...

I am messing with my pickups in my RG1570. I had a pair of Evo's that I dropped in, but they are much taller than the V7 V8 combo. Routing would be necessary to make them work, and I don't know if I like the idea of them enough to do that (I don't have the tools).
So my question is: What...
Selling most of my collection, GAS got the best of me lately, keep in mind I keep my gear pristine! Wiped down after every use, and set up every few months/new strings.
-Ibanez 1991 RG 570 In Cherry Sunburst Flamed Maple! Rare finish, few minor pick scratches on the body, typical neck pocket...
Probably won't have much luck here with this but thought I'd give it a try.
Up next on my list of my gear that must move is my Tom Delonge strat. It's an original made in mexico, actual fender and is completely stock. Cosmetically a 8.5 out of 10 because of the black guitar curse and a few...
Does anyone else have this amp that can help me out? I am looking for the early 80's metallica tone. I am trying to do this with my carvin x100b. I am pretty close, but even with the graphic eq there is like this extra bass that I can't get rid of. Any suggestions for setting the eq.
i'm new here and have a question about pick-up choices for lower tunings.. I just received my Ibanez RG470xl, strung it with .14-.70's and tuned it A-A. It sounds massive, but i think i'm going to look for a slightly clearer bridge pickup, with more low end response.
i'm down to these...
Good Pickup for Metal?
I need some help finding a good bridge pickup for my Ibanez, I need something that has a high output, but isnt muddy. I tune 1 1/2 steps down.

ibz usa f1(2)
ibz usa f2(3)
dimarzio new 7 neck
dimarzio new 7 bridge(2)
dimarzio air norton
dimarzio tone zone
dimarzio virtual p90
dimarzio tone zone p90
Has anyone out there in Jemsite land tried both?
I'm looking at buying one, and wondering how they compare?
I've tried a few guitars with the Evo (and I love it), but i've never had the chance to try an Evo2. I know what Dimarzio say about them, but i'm after an opinion from someone who has...
I am really looking forward to buying my first Ibanez guitar! After having used a Fender HM Strat ('89 model, the kind of guitar Greg Howe used to play) for quite some time now, I'm on the market for a competent guitar with a floating trem of some kind on my guitar, because the Kahler...
