However i had a few other issues with the guitar. in the end i found i wasn't playing it and i ended up selling the guitar to a friend. This friend however wasn't bothered about keeping the...

  3. Pickups & wiring
    I have a 2005 and a 2007 Jem. Both are 7vwh. (Yes its repetitive and foolish, and also financially crippling, please no judging.) But the problem is they sound entirely different. the 2005 sounds great, I bought it new and know it is 100% factory wiring. The 2007 is used and abused, probably...
  4. Pickups & wiring
    Hi guys, I'm not a fan of the third position in the standard Ibanez HSH setup. Not only does the standalone single coil buzz, but I also find that the tone and output isn't too complementary with the other positions. In Guthrie Govan's signature Charvel, he has the neck and middle split for...
  5. Pickups & wiring
    Hello all. I'm going to state this here & now: I'm pretty much new to guitar. I've wanted to play pretty much my whole life as my dad is a musician, but anyway; onward. I just got my first guitar, an RG270. My goal as of now is to practice up enough to be able to bash out some Buzzsaw Swedish...
  6. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys I need help asap! I'm installing a Bareknuckle Aftermath in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan YJM humbucking single coil in the middle of my RG2XXV but can't seem to figure out if I'm wiring the pickups to the right connections on the 5 way switch. It looks like the factory installed...

    I've seen some interesting guitars on a local guitar ad site, and I thought why not share them with you guys. One of them is an RG3120 with HSH pickup config: Looks like a normal 3120, with an added middle single coil. One of the previous owners chimed in on a local board and claimed that...
  8. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey guys, I have a new Ibanez Apex100, which is closest to my requirements, but not quite yet. So i planned a few mods, before i bought it. I need a pickguard with an HSH routing, in white. Does anyone know if it's easy to come by, or maybe if someone can do a custom pickguard for me? I...
  9. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey guys, new to the forum looking for a little help with my RG. I have an RG 350 DX, and I want to put EMG 81/85's in it. However, It still has space for a middle "single coil." I think I want to put another active EMG in there, but I cannot find a wiring diagram for this configuration...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I'm probably kicking a dead horse here, but after a forum search I couldn't find this exact mod, so I may as well share it for anyone who wants to try it. A little over a year ago I picked up a pristine Prestige 1570, pristine apart from the fact that the previous owner had his replacement...
  11. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Hey everyone, I'm extremely new to using this forum and this is actually my first post. Bear with me please. I need the opinion and suggestion of someone who has played several of the S series guitars, or can at least tell me what MAJOR differences would be between two of them. Okay, so I've...
  12. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    This is my first attempt to routing. It all started when I discovered that the stratty clean quack sound is in position 2 when you split the neck pickup with the coil towards the neck along with the middle pickup. This is not the way the Jem/RG split 5 is originally, and I've always wondered why...
  13. Pickups & wiring
    Hi I know there must be a hundreds of diagrams out there already for the combination I'm looking for but I'll put it down here again so if you could send me a link or nicely visible diagram...thank you. I got a strat with Floyd, HSH pickups (2 x Dimarzio Humbuckers-neck/bridge and Seymour...
  14. Pickups & wiring
    Hi everyone, I recently under took a guitar project to make s team punk themed Jem. I've painted it and hand crafted a copper pick guard for that steam punk look. Now I'm up to wiring the pickups and I'm stumped as this is my first project. I've opted for a matched pair of bareknuckle Cold...
  15. Pickups & wiring
    Hey Guys.. I was setting up my Ibanez S series MIJ that I bougth as the action was too high. Well, that turned out to be because of the shim under the neck floyd route / nut. Thanks Rich! So, I was working on that, and looked inside the route for the pups and somehow I pulled a couple wires...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    Hi! I just bought an Ibanez s770fm which has a pickup configuration- HSH. I run it through a blackstar ht 5r 5w tube amp with a maxon od 808. However I'm not happy with the stock pups. I really want to replace the stock pups. I play mostly heavy metal, thrash, death, progressive etc. But I also...

    Hi Folks. I have posted about this guitar before, but I apologize as I can't remember where I posted about the same. Anyway, I found an S series made in Japan guitar at the local pawn shop. It's all black, has a F ? and S and F set of pickups. HSH config. It has an Edge trem. All black in...
  18. Pickups & wiring
    Despite scouring the wiring resources from DiMarzio, Ibanez, Guitar Electronics etc., I'm having trouble working this out on my 1991 540S. I replaced the single coil with an Air Norton S. The neck and bridge both have 4 conductor wire (Duncan neck; DiMarzio bridge). Through trial and error I...
  19. Pickups & wiring
    Looking for some direct feedback here. My amateur soldering jobs had left a terrible mess on the pots of my 550, so I had my guitar shop's wiring guy clean it up and re-install the original pickups. Pics: (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157631160691410/) As you can see the...
  20. Pickups & wiring
    Hi there, I have an HSH sabre and would like to add one sound to the regular configuration (see diagram below) with a push-pull pot. I was told a short shaft will fit the volume position. Basically, (with the pot up) I want both humbuckers split (the outer coils) in parallel. PS: Also, could...
