  1. Pickups & wiring
    Hello everyone, It's been a long time since I have posted on these forums, so what better way to dust off the old account by posting a thread? Anyways, I recently acquired an Ibanez RT140 second hand and decided that I needed to change out the pickups. I decided to go one at a time since it...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    I'm just starting to look into soldering my own pickups, watching tutorials, etc. So I found the wiring diagram that Ibanez has for my guitar setup, and I opened the back of the guitar to eyeball everything and get a good idea of how things flow before I begin to try different configs. The...
  3. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys, been thinking about electronics recently and have a question. I understand the function of the live, earth and neutral wires. In a circuit the earth is there to provide a link to the ground in the case of a mishap. However, on an electric guitar we have our earth wire attatched to...
  4. Pickups & wiring
    I have a little problem. I purchased a Dimarzio Crunch Lab and I'm about to install it. The Cort X6 I install in has stock pickups yet, a volume knob, a tone knob push-pull(coil tap) and a 5-way selector (neck, neck coil&middle, middle, middle&bridge coil, bridge). It looks like this...

I've lurked around this board for a while, and I think I came to the right place. Now, on to the...
  7. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Well, yesterday my guitar was on it's stand, and I lifted a card box and it fell, hitting the back of the body and back of the headstock I didnt notice changes on the sound, but something "shakes" on the headstock now. I am not sure if it did that before, but I think it is kind of a natural...
  8. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I just finished assembling my hybrid/frankenstein RG an overall, i am extremely happy with it. But I have noticed I have a loud hum when I am sitting there not playing, and the volume turned up. It is louder when I touch the strings or the tremolo, and quieter when i am not touching anything...
  9. Pickups & wiring
    I have a guitar with a on-on-on mini toggle for switching between 2 humbuckers. I get a buzz when I touch the toggle, but it goes away when I touch the strings. So do I need a ground going to the mini toggle? If so where do I solder it, one of the lugs or the side of the toggle's body? I've...
