  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I'm a relatively new musician who is looking for a step up from his Epiphone. I have two questions. Number one: is it worth it? Number two: do any of you JEM owners get put down musically for owning one? E.g. they say your just trying to copy Vai. I mean, this guitar is all I've been looking...

    where I could possibly have an Ibanez Custom made to my specs? I might consider having one made but the model that almost seems like the one is an SZ prestige body, stoptail, figured maple top, fancy cross inlay on 7th fret, with intricate vine inlays, (thicker vines than on the jem) abalone and...

  6. Pickups & wiring
    I picked up a RG420 for a winter project, it will need new pickups. I have always use the Super Distortion/PAF Pro combo. I was thinking about trying the SD JB/59 combo. I don't know how this would sound best in the basswood body. I am looking for Warren DeMartini's sound. Warren's guitars had...

    Anyone know anything about this pickup? From everything I've read, it's supposed to sound great. PG has used it, and he has some great tones. Well I just installed one in my guitar...the usual deal, basswood RG550 with a pickguard...and it sounds... like ****. It's in the bridge position...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    Okay, thinking of wiring a super distortion in my bridge slot (strat, swamp ash body) with a coil split option for more single coil-ish tone. The thing is, I'm still not 100% convinced. How would you guys describe the Super Distortion, and what do you think of it?

  10. Pickups & wiring
    Long time since I've posted here as I have been busy raising up some young'uns, but as I gear up for some new band adventures I'm running into a few problems with thin, wimpy sounding stock Ibanez pickups. My '87 Radius had the stockers and they were simply awful sounding. I tossed in a set of...

    Hey all, Havn't posted here for a while, but I need some advice for a set of new pick-ups for my LP ( Sorry, I know theres loads of these threads ). It's a standard LP with a mahogany body. I play blues mostly, but dirty blues ala SRV, but I'm not looking for his sound if you know what...

    Hi All, I'm about to embark on building one of the Saga PRS style guitars. The body is made of basswood and the scale length appears to be a Gibson scale length (24.75" isn't it). I'm probably able to get a Dimarzio Evo bridge pickup for it, but for the neck I'm trying to work out what will go...

    So Ive had this Breed sittin around for a few months, and my anxiety finally won me over yesterday. I originally got it from MF, to go into my mex Fat Strat (HSS). Anyhow, didnt like it there, too middy for my taste I thought. This led to me buying an Evolution i think the next day, lol. The...

    I recently picked up a JS6 that was in pretty good condition although it had dark stains where your right hand fingers would lay. It almost looks like the burn marks you get on hardwood floors where the dog pissed. Anyway I was going to leave it but said what the hell. I removed all the...
