middle pickup

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I recently got a RG370AHMZ in Silver Wave Black. (Which is a very sexy guitar by the way.) I love it, but my only two problems are; 1. I can't lower the middle pickup very far, which both causes it to get in the way and reduces the sound options. 2. When palm muting, I end up pushing the edge...
  2. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello all, All of a sudden I noticed that something is wrong with the middle pickup on my Ibanez UV7 Green Dot. They are all the original Blaze II pickups. I've owned the guitar since the 90s so no idea when or how it might have happened but I think recently and all I've done recently is a...

    Need help with this HSH diagram NOTE: I believe these wire codes are correct for modern Bill Lawrence humbuckers (Bill & Becky, not Bill Lawrence USA, which are different). Bill Lawrence Wiring & Tech Info Wiring & Tech Info White = SS positive lead for South Coil (+ when used as regular...

    When I switch from either bridge or neck pickup to the single coil there is a massive drop in volume. I have tried raising it as much as possible but it makes no difference. I am going straight into a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier 100 watt head and the pickup is just unusable. Could it be a "bad"...
  5. Pickups & wiring
    After driving half the board and my local DiMarzio dealer crazy over the past couple of months, I've finally found the middle single coil I've been searching for! I finally worked my way around to the True Velvet and it seems to be my perfect fit in the HSH config. In the Evo2/Air Norton setup...
  6. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Continuing my experiments with my now beloved 1994 USA Washburn mahogany HSS strat, I wanted to switch the Air Norton S (neck) with the stock Seymour Duncan SSL-5 middle pickup. I find the Air Norton S too dark in the neck of this mahogany guitar, and thought that putting it in the middle...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    I ordered an evolution middle pickup which goes by the name "ISCV2 Single Coil" to go with a tone zone bridge/air norton neck combo.. Now I'm reading that the evo is supposed to only be used with the other evolution pickups. What happens if you don't? Does it sound like crap? I'm mainly...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    So... Im going for the Evolution neck/bridge for my new guitar, Ibanez S570b. Mahogany body, 24 frets and all that jazz. I wonder if the DiMarzio Injector Neck would be a fitting singlecoil pickup for my guitar. Would it be relatively balanced with the Evolutions, or no?

    I will probably change this out when I do the others (PAF 36 and Super Distortion) just to get the colors to match. Any suggestions on a middle position? I'd like to use a single coil, but I have little to no experience with Dimarzio single coils (I have used just about every humbucker they...
  10. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello guys.. :D I have a question.. Can I make the INFS3 go deeper into the body ? I don't use it much at position 3. Mostly on 2 and 4 for some cleans and jazz parts, but when I go to hard strumming parts at the humbucker (Position 5). I do hit it a lot which is an obstacle for me sometimes...
  11. Pickups & wiring
    Hey Guys, Here is my scenario - I've got an RG550 with a Mo'Joe in the bridge and soon to be PAF Joe in the neck. I'm trying to identify a good choice for middle pickup. I definitely want noiseless so I want to pick from the hum cancelling Dimarzio selection. I'm basically looking for a pickup...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    Hello Ive got a RG350DX that I slapped a tone zone in the bridge, humbucker from hell in the neck and now Im looking for a good middle pickup to complete it. Any advice? I'm leaning toward the Area 58, 61 or Virtual Vintage series. Currently, the output in the 2 and 4 position drops a bit with...
