    Hi ladies and gentlemen! I've recently tried a lot of several basswood-body RGs, found out, that there are ones, that are little more heavy, above 3,5 kg (7,7 lbs), which sound really good with a chunky low end and howling mids. So I know, that more weight doesn't automatically means a fatter...

    There was a lot of fret buzz coming from my 560 so recently, just to test out a theory, I picked lightly and the buzz was gone. I knew the action was set pretty low from the time I got it but I never realized how much of an impact it can really have. Then, reading on Rich's site about action...

    This guitar is in great shape it truly is a sonic beauty! The red finish is electric and stands out to me. I bought it from a guy who took it in on a trade back in 2001 ish and he never played it so beyond the 3 dings in the back of the guitar this one is in spectacular shape. I'm looking to get...

    Hey guys! Look, it's another thread where you can post a picture of a turned-off light bulb!! :lol: Anyway, I need a PASSIVE Seymour Duncan pickup (6 or 7 string. I play both) that can get really dark and brutal. As most of you know, I'm a Death Metal player! And most of my guitars (6 and 7...

I'm trying to tune i e standard but even when I set the max spring tension bridge bends like I'm doing a slight dive bomb and action is...

  9. Pickups & wiring
    I was thinking of a pickup swap for my Ibanez RG350 (basswood body), and was wondering if anyone had any experience with the Dimarzio D-Activator X or the Dimarzio Humbucker From Hell, looking for D-Activator in the bridge, Humbucker From Hell in the neck. Does anyone know if the sound will...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    Hi all. I'm planning on switching the pickups in my Ibanez RG3520z from the stock pickups (DiMarzio ibz's) to something more aggressive. I'm looking for modern heavy metal sound (Machine Head, Trivium, Killswitch Engage etc) and I'm playing through a Engl Fireball 60watt, in drop C tuning. I...

    Just wondering what kind of metal you enjoy most. I'm not trying to start an argument about which is better, just what you think. I like thrash metal the best.
