  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, I wasn't sure if this thread was more appropriate here or on another sub forum but here goes. I just bought a used Ibanez Prestige RG1570(made in 2006) for cheap and for some reason, my pinch harmonic on the 2nd string 17th fret has ZERO sustain, the other frets are fine and the other...
  2. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Today I witnessed the weirdest change that a new (or just good) string might have compared to an old one (or just bad). I have this uv70p, and before I sent to Germany for the known problems, I remembered it had killer harmonics everywhere. When I got it back and after all the repairs, it was...
  3. Pickups & wiring
    I have an Ibanez USRG30 guitar with Air Norton & Breed Bridge pickups that I currently use to try out different ideas. So I tried out two different ideas: (1) Wiring the outside coils in series, and (2) rearranging the 5-way switch order. Part I: As I was looking on the Dimarzio's website, I...

    Behold true believers! You all asked for it, and i heard your telepathic cries for guidance and wisdom on the subject of the ancient art of the pinch harmonic. Other wise known as artificial harmonics, pick squeals, or Fran Drescher, this technique is going to get your guitar squealing louder...

    Hey All, About 20 years ago, while trying to figure out the intro to Red Barchetta, I sat down with my computer and my knowledge of how strings vibrate, and I figured out all of the notes that are possible to play with natural harmonics. I've finally boiled it down to a format that I think is...
  6. Pickups & wiring
    Sorry, I know these are some basic terms, but still I don't know exactly what they mean. Maybe I even know them in Croatian, but not in English. What means that: - pickup cleans up well - pickup has good dynamics - pickup has good harmonics - pickup has lower string pull - pickup has...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    hello my dear friends, i need some serious help for upgrading my rg. what i did so far was a new flip flop finish, some type of carbon-style foil onto the pickguard, dimarzio evolution @ neck and evo 2 @ bridge, leaving the the standard ibanez singlecoil into middle position. the axe does a...
  8. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    3 months ago, my guitar went for a professional setup, the guy tuned the harmonics, etc... I broke a string the other day, and tomorrow Im going to restring the guitar. Do I need to tune the harmonics "again"? Thanks in advance for the replies, and sorry for such a noobie question :(
  9. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Its happening on most of the strings but especially on G. I use the natural harmonics on the G string's 15th,16th and 17th frets a lot for dive bombing as well as just pinch the open G string for harmonics and whammy work. But it sounds almost dead on those places. I have a new FR knock off...
