    Let me start by saying I am definitely an "EMG Guy", but I have a guitar that won't fit EMG's, and besides, I want to have one that's different so that I can get some different kind of tones happening. And besides, this guitar almost seems like it's screaming for a set of Dimarzios. I've pored...

    Hey everyone, I just got a new Ibanez Genisis RG550 and also picked up some Gravity Storm pickups. I kept the original middle pick and wired the guitar this way. Gravity Storm pickups: black + white wires taped together, red to correct positions on the switch. Left the middle pickup wired as it...

    Up for sale are a set of Lace dissonant aggressor pickups in black. These pickups are very clear, and have a very aggressive mid range. They aren't super high output, but if you are seeking a passive replacement for active pickups these are a great alternative. I bought them because I wanted to...

    Basic question but couldn't find previous threads on it. I'm going to put gravity storms in the bridge and neck of my 1987 RG550. From what I read I need F spaced size for the bridge, correct? I've seen different opinions on the neck, with some saying standard instead of F. Any quick...

    I installed gravity storm neck and bridge pups on my RG655 I love the sound of them. Very deep, warm, and organic sound. I seriously haven't been this excited in tone in a very long time. They sound that great. A few observations that I made during the installation of the pups... Under the...

    Ok guys, per your advice last month, I saved my money and bought at 655 from Rich (and he delivered a great instrument set up beautifully) versus killing the budget and purchasing a JEM. But since I didn't purchase a JEM, I did not get either the Evo's or Gravity Storm pickups but instead the...

    Got this Ibanez in a craigslist trade. A friend of mine gave me their cheap Axl Badwater El Dorado Tele and I painted it, routed it for a humbucker, and upgraded the pickups, controls, and hardware. I ended up trading it for this. I really love the look and feel of this neck! Its like the...

    Okay so as part of my "break in the new amp" party, I spent about an hour or so going through 4 of 5 my Ibanezes to see how the pups sound. I did quick clean runs and a lot of high gain through the lead channel. All passed my ears on clean. However, high gain was a different story. For high...

    Just installed a Bridge and a Neck Gravity Storm as well as a replacement cover for the single True Velvet. Not going to lie, I just wanted white pickups and to try something new. I bought a pack of 3 DiMz white covers to cover the middle single coil, the fit isn't great, however my guess is...

    I have a black Gravity Storm bridge and Chopper neck pickup I wanna trade, for a black, white, or black/white set of DiMarzio Breed. The Gravity Storm and Chopper are a year old, never really played the guitar they were in much, didn't care for the pickups...

    Getting ready to buy the pups for my next project. I've played the Evolution, and HOLY LOUD! The Evo2 was much more my style. Still thick in the mids but not screechingly so like the Evo. Both forced me to be a better player, which I hated at 1st, but grew to appreciate. I never found a perfect...

    Hello everyone, Just recently I purchased an amazing 1987 Ibanez Roadstar which is a great guitar, but as good as it feels and plays, the pickups aren't exactly great to me. The configuration on this one is HSS, body is basswood, neck is maple with rosewood board and 22 frets, Edge tremolo. I...

    Hello fellow Jemsters, The Dimarzio Gravity Storms pickups has been out for almost 8 months, so I guess the honeymoon-time has passed ;) I'm really interested in how you like these pickups now. Do you still have them in your Jem's, RG's or other guitars? If not, what is the reason for...

    Hi, I got these special order. However, I decided to sell the guitar they are destined for, so just don't need them now. They are BRAND NEW, SEALED as from the factory. I am in the UK. They were £170 new for the set. Let's go for £150 o.n.o.

    I have an Ibanez S5470 Prestige Team J-Craft guitar I need to sell as I'm on lockdown from the wife. It's a one in, one out rule and I have a backordered Ibanez AS153 coming at the end of the month. The S5470 is the beautiful Viking Red Flame model, MADE IN JAPAN, and it's pretty darn close to...

    Just bought a S570DXQM to start fiddling around with a tremolo again and want to get rid of the stock INF pickups. Was thinking about either the new Gravity Storms or the Evo2's. Any experiences with either? Suggestions?
