  2. Pickups & wiring
    So next week I'm ordering new pickups for my RG7321, and liquifire for the neck, and a d-activator for the bridge. After much research I finally decided that these are the pickups for me.

    I just bought the Crunch Lab for my RG1570's bridge position. A little information is required. The previous V8 pickup has a pair of foams under it which the Crunch Lab do not have.

There are like 9 wires that need to go on that little spot on the back of the pot. Does it matter how they are put...

I just bought an AirNorton and a DSonic to replace the 2 original H but I want to keep the IBZ middle S since I don't use it too much. So I soldered the 2 new H wires exactly where the originals were soldered...
