  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    No.... not as bad as it sounds. I was just wondering about a certain mod I have been toying with. I love Ibanez guitars, I like my Jem jr and have been thinking about a Jem77BFP or some of the other beautiful Ibanez guitars. However, I really don't want an Edge tremolo. If I had to have a whammy...

    I need help identifying a pickup set. The wiring colors are red, white, blue, black and bare. So, I have to assume they are Ibanez, but the only marking on the brass colored bottom plates are a R and F stamp. Oh and there are slugs on both the north and south (no adjustable pole pieces). I have...

    Hey chums! So, the new Fishman Fluence Modern set is pretty flippin' awesome. I am a lifelong passive pickup guy, so I was initially very apprehensive about a powered pickup... All my doubts vanished as soon as I installed them in my RG550 and plugged it up! This set does everything that an EMG...

    These came in a guitar I recently purchased. This is my first set of Bare Knuckle pickups. They're very cool, but I'm stuck in my ways as a DiMarzio guy so I'm gonna let these go. I don't know for sure which model these are because they're not marked with a model. I didn't bother measuring...

    I need help finding a wiring diagram for a specific Ibanez RG Prestige I remember seeing out in the market a few years back. I'd say around 2007 but it might of been an older model. It was an RG prestige. It came in all black. It had shark tooth inlays. Important: It only had a volume knob...

    This is a serious question. I have a mid 90's I believe, RG 3500DX. The pups are super hot and a little too hot for what I play. I love the guitar. The look, the action, the neck and overall playability. Not thrilled with the pups. One day I would like to get another Les Paul to replace the one...

    Hey ya'll, hope you're well. I just got a new RGT42MDX - Infinity 1 & 2 'buckers as standard. Looking to upgrade them (without breaking the bank much further) - so was looking at Tonerider. Are the Generator Set (TRH2) any good, or a downgrade compared to the Inf 1 / 2's? The PUP's I'm...

    Hello everyone, I´m new in here and I just want to ask some opinions about to change the humbuckers in my RG350DX, I know is not an excellent guitar but I think it can sound better with DiMarzio EVO instead of INF humbuckers. Any suggestions? Thanks.
