humbucker sound

  1. Pickups & wiring
    How do you like it? I heard a clip of a Air Norton in the neck of a Les Paul and was blown away by the tone. I like how powerful yet pafish the bridge Breed is and am wondering if it will make a good combo for a mahogany body explorer. Southern, bluesy, and classic metal stuff. Thanks

    anybody try these out? they seem really really cool. It's a P-90 and a Cool Rails pickup slammed together. You can run both coils together for a humbucker, or split either coil for a strat tone or a P-90 tone. read about it here...

    Ok so I've been saving some cash to get a really pimped out guitar. Originally I wanted a Jem, and still do eventually, but I think for now I'm gonna get a custom carvin. It's more pimped out but cheaper, and although I love floating bridges I would rather get really good at just a fixed bridge...

  6. Pickups & wiring
    I have a set of Dimarzios coming from a RG7620... The bridge pickup works flawlessly but the neck pickup is about to make me lose my mind... No matter what I try it seems as if it keeps sounding out of phase with itself... I've tried reversing the white with the green wire, but it makes no...

    well seeing as i think people are right about there being too many pickup threads lets just make one post with dimarzio pickup info and clips . Sound good ? cool . Breed Bridge DP 166 If you've seen Steve Vai play in the last few years, you may have seen him playing an Ibanez® Jem guitar...

    The Steinberger Spirit GU-Standard (with the HSS separating it from being "Deluxe," but I like HSS better anyway. No point in using a 'bucker for cleans IMO) In perfect condition. This is going to be my second guitar, my first with any kind of tremolo, so now I have an excuse to be rolling...

  11. Pickups & wiring
    I have a rg that i just put an evo in and I love it so much, just it made my middle and neck pickups sound bad. So I've been trying to decide between an Evo Neck and Evo Neck pickup or a Blue Velvet Bridge for middle and an Air Norton.

    Well I finally got me a Les Paul. Being the cheapest man alive, I tried to find a decent used one, and after two "misfires", I broke down and bought a new standard. I got a good deal, and I had to sell my 87' 550 to get it, but I am happy in the end. Zebra Alnico II Pros already ordered!
  14. Pickups & wiring
    I've only had very limited experience with single coil sized humbuckers, I had a fast track in the neck of a Jackson pc3 quite some time ago. And to be honest I wasn't too impressed, have avoided them ever since. Now Im starting a new project, I want to stick a clear pickguard on a strat body...

    What do you all think of this? I have great respect for the instrument. I also realise that this question could flow onto other guitars such as the Les Paul and Strat, but what do you think? I am also prepaired for the onslaught of angry JEM owners :P
  16. Pickups & wiring
    Hi there. Recently I've become pretty decent at soldering and wiring work, but I can't figure this one out. I've got an '85 Ibanez Proline V with an H/H configuration that I'm installing V7/V8 humbuckers into. Each pickup has the following wires: red, white and bare (ground). How do I install...

    My S1520 with a split 5way has a problem. The guitar sounds fine in all positions 1,2,3 (neck HB, neck split, both HB) and even 4 both HB split but....in the 5th position (bridge HB only) the output drops dramatically. It's wierd that it sounds fine split but not in full series. So is it...
  19. Pickups & wiring
    Hi guys, I just got a RG560, 2 single coils, 1 humbucker. I am one of those guys that actually like the stock Ibanez pickups. But, I am tired of the single coil hum. I would like to replace at least the neck single coil with a single coil style pickup that's quiet. Maybe something stacked. I...
