  1. Pickups & wiring
    Hi all, I wanted to change the tone zone/true velvet/air norton combo in my Ibanez RG8570SP to a set of Evos. When I fitted them, it seemed as though everything would be wired the same from the instructions - is this the case? Should the new evos be wired in exactly the same fashion as the...

  3. Pickups & wiring
    Hello Jemsite, I am in a bit of a dilemma. I have an S320 guitar and i am about to buy myself a roland gr-20 with the gk-3 pickup. The space between the bridge and the bridge pickup is very tight and i am not sure if the pickup will fit. I have heard that you could chop a side of the pickup...
  4. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys, so I made this video a few nights ago on how to install guitar pickups. I do not go over any specific wiring configuration (you can look up the diagram to your specific guitar wiring), but I take a look at everything else you will encounter when installing new pickups. The install was...
  5. Pickups & wiring
    I have a little problem. I purchased a Dimarzio Crunch Lab and I'm about to install it. The Cort X6 I install in has stock pickups yet, a volume knob, a tone knob push-pull(coil tap) and a 5-way selector (neck, neck coil&middle, middle, middle&bridge coil, bridge). It looks like this...

    http://www.seymourduncan.com/forum/showthread.php?t=213411 Here's a thread on the Liberator where RichardFX has trouble fitting it into an RG. I've put one into my RG, and the demo video has a 1988 540SHH. You guys know to use a reamer to enlarge the potentiometer holes in your Ibanez' right...

    Just got an RGA121 Prestige Natural finish. I've seen a lot of threads about installing EMGs but can't find any with links and pictures. Got a couple questions for you all who have already done what I am doing. 1. How did you deal with the 5 way switch. 2. How do you adjust the height of...

    I am planning on installing a gk3 internal kit into my RG. The pickup ring gets in the way for an external one near the floyd but i wonder if its any different internally installed and if i can mount it near the floyd where it typically is where can i?
  10. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I haven't followed Ibanez much since the introduction of this trem and am thinking of installing one in a guitar I am building. From what I read on this forum, a direct swap with older Edge's isn't possible due to intonation problems. Or maybe I have this wrong. Was it ever determined if the...
  11. Pickups & wiring
    I've just installed the green PAF Pro that I got off Homebake today. It's apparently out of a JEM (green pickup). We've assumed that it's a bridge one as the wiring on it was quite short, and there is an "F" printed on the back, along with V 1, and the Made in the USA DiMarzio bit. The wires...

    Right. I'm nearing the end of the road with my project strat now. I think anyway. One of the last things I'm thinking of doing is replacing the current stock plastic nut with a Fender LSR roller. How much effort will this be to install? Is it doable for someone, like me, who isn't a tech?
  14. Pickups & wiring
    Ok guys I'll start by saying I'm very new to this modding lark! I have an RG270 but wish to upgrade the pickups to give more power/tone/sustain etc. I have the pickups already (K.A. wpu's for the RG's HSH combi) and on recommendation elsewhere bought an Allparts 5-way 2-pole switch. Thinking I...
