    Up for grabs is my beloved GR-33 guitar synth. This is one bad mother****er! You can be any instrument you can dream of. You can add any two sounds together, with any of the built in effects, and have each sound triggered by certain strings if you so choose. You can be a drumset, a piano, a...

    I'm purchasing some tester pickups for my RG550 (Three, to save on shipping) to see what tones I like, kinda tired of the Super 3 in there. I like a bitey tone, with more treble than mid, and more mid than bass. So far I'm looking at... Super II D Activator Neck D Activator Bridge X2N Any...

    I've been in the Jemsite community for a long time and still am an avid Ibanez player and enthusiast. But this is definitely worth mentioning here because it blew me away and it's nice to share when artists and companies are simply amazing. In this case, I'm referring to John Petrucci and...

    hello guys; I saw a '02 Rg 2120x-tlb in a guitarshop, guitar has been waiting for years and it hasn't been even touched =). As you know it has piezzo and two outputs. What can you say about this guitar? Have you ever tried this? How much does it worth giving? I have never used a piezo guitar...

    Hi guys, I have a question involving pickup wiring and pickup height. When i bought my RG2027 and ordered me an Evo 7 pickup, I realised my bridge pickup (the evo) was sticking out higher than my Air Norton when i placed that in the neck. Would you solve this problem by further routing the...

    Yay, it's here! But first, back a few weeks. I decided to enter the Jemsite competition mostly because I had some cash laying on my PayPal account, and thought that a 1/25 chance is just good enough to give it a shot. During the couple of weeks of waiting before the winner was decided, I...

    I am selling my near mint 2003 Ernie Ball MusicMan Silhouette guitar. I am the original owner and I ordered this guitar in 2003. It has not been used outside my house, and as a result, it is in near mint condition (white color has yellowed slightly). The specs for the guitar are as follows...
  13. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, I got a RG2020 used and someone had a EMG wired up in the bridge, and it was all messed up. I removed the EMG and put in the original V8, but something is wrong. The guitar is lower in volume than my other guitars and the Bridge pickup sounds a little muddy...also less output on both...

    Ok, I've been kicking around a lot of ideas about how to customize this strat. So far I've decided that it needs a fishman piezo bridge in replacement of the regular vintage style trem. I've also decided that it really needs the active preamp too, which is optional but i've been made aware...

    Was looking at the fishman website and i saw that they have a piezo system for archtop guitars, it looks like it'd work well. My question is could it be used in conjunction with an electric hollowbody guitar? Basically having the same effect that you'd get with an electric solidbody with a...

    Hello, I'm possibly looking to get an Ibanez (my first) soon, and the main one that I'm wanting is an RG prestige with the Double Edge Trem. How do these sound. I'm sure they're good as the piezos are made by Fishman (from what I've read), but I'd like to hear some testimonials. There seem to...

    Ok, this is gonna be a long one probably, just as fair warning :) I use a roland GK synth with my RG1570, its the externally mounted GK3, I have long wanted to have the built in GK system for it, using the piezo edge pro bridge (and being too poor to afford the 1520GK). Finally the other day I...
