i've a sc620 (it's a S series body with fixed wraparound bridge and ebony board 25' scale).
it has a tone zone in the bridge and i liked it, but after months of playing i think that i don't like it very much.i think it's too muddy so i was seeking for an alternative.
i read good...
At the moment I've come to a dead end: which wood will give me strong attack, screamy and punchy sound for solos and fast playing?
Mahogany or Basswood?
I've been looking at Ibanez guitars on Ibanezrules.com and I've got a few candidates: RG20062/63, RG3520Z and RG2620.
Not talking golf either ! :P
If you were building an Ibanez from scratch and you had any choice of wood for it, what wood would you use and why ? Is there something in it's tone that made you decide one way or another, is it for weight reasons, or... ??
Let me know what you'd do !
Don't know if this is old news or not, but I've only just heard that the RG770DX is going to be reissued. Advert here:
I'm sure they'll be popular, but look how much they are charging!
While at GC today, I played a $2099 Suhr Tele. Then playd a $149 Squire Tele. The diffenece? A whole bunch of money. That's it. The tone was a little different. But not $1800 different. Not even different enough for the average person to notice. And get this. The Squire was set up and...
No big suprise here, alot of you already knew from some of my previous posts I was getting this one. :)
Here's a brief :rolleyes: introduction that I'm sure alot of you can relate to;)
One day a couple years ago I picked up and played an RGT42fx (flat blk with green wedge inlays) in this small...
An X2N in a Basswood RG? I know they sound sweet in Mahogany guitars like Gibsons but how do they sound in a RG?
How about a Breed in a Alder or Ash Strat? How did it sound?
I'm thinking of taking the Breed from my RG and putting it in my G&L. Then, putting a X2N in the RG Bridge on both of...
I've recently read a few online articles about the tonal properties of different body woods, and I was wondering what fellow Jemsiters have to say on the topic.
How would you describe the tonal characteristics of basswood, mahogany, ash or alder(or any others you care to add)?
Any opinions or...
How does it sound. Is it more tighter and less dark than... basswood? I see everyone seems to love it in basswood, but also a lot of mixed responses. I do like the mids, but I think it could use a liiiiittle bit less bass.
what wood do you think tone zone is best in of mahogany/basswood/alder...
I've upgraded to a Mark III purple stripe combo and I'm loving the tones I'm getting, however, the V7/V8 combo in my RG2020xtb just doesn't cut it. I'm looking for something with a little more punch especially for palm mutes. Some tones I'm looking for are Testament (particularly that smooth...
I'm debating whether or not I should put new pickups in my stock rg7420.
And if so, which pickups should I get for it? I want a good metal tone that is clear, with crisp chords, and a smooth lead, but without that shrill, harsh, trebly, hot tone.
Should I do that or just try to sell/get rid...
Hey I just checked out Carvins website - and its new. I haven't checked in a long time - but I've got to say - this one is MUCH nicer - you can see all the specs, and there are a series of menus to go through to pick options. It's pretty sweet I say. Check it out if you haven't already.
I while back I changed out the v7 and v8 pickups out for an air zone(B) and air norton(N).... in my rga121vlf
and I have to say, in this guitar the stock pickups sound great. Those particular dimarzios are not suited for this guitar IMO.
Now b4 you call me crazy, I liked the tone great when...
Im doing up a Custom guitar with the help of Chris Woods. However, Im ordering a fresh guitar then selling the neck first. Im curious if the upgrade for the RG2550e over the RG1570 is worth it?!? You get a pickguard and different pickups.
Are the IBZ pups a quality pickup, or mass produced...
Has anyone out there played the ESP Horizon FR(ash body) and FR II(alder body) ?
I am interested in one of these guitars, and was wondering how they compare tonewise.
Any help would be appreciated. :)
