  1. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations for a middle pickup for a basswood RG550? I am running a Dimarzio ToneZone in the bridge and Evolution in the neck, since I often seek out Vai and Gilbert tones. I've done extensive research and am torn between three different...

    Good afternoon, I just joined this site, but have been visiting periodically for awhile. I have a rg5ex1. I decided to save a lil time and hassle by paying a dude to set up the bridge neck and everything. First exp with a floyd rose type system. Anyway, I didn't care for the strings he used and...
  4. Pickups & wiring
    Okay I've been playing around with the 5-way switches on all of my Ibbys lately and something I never thought about (but is one of the reasons I like ibanez so it's really weird): What are the qualities that make a good middle single coil pickup? Should middle singles be lower output than the...

    I have a Jem build in which I wired up a middle single coil pickup that is reverse wound/reverse polarity. The neck and bridge pickups are DiMarzio 36th. My problem is that when I select positions 2 and 4 on the selector switch, its as though I'm out of phase and the volume drops...

    1. What type of music do you like? Be specific about bands or particular guitarists. Dream Theater, Metallica, Protest the Hero, Dire Straits, Weezer, a lot of 90s covers, any kinda darker blues sound. 2. What type of equipment are you going to be playing through? A 10 watt...

    Hi! I just wanna ask you to find the best single pickup in my situation. I have RG 550 DXPN from 1993 made in FuGigen. this beauty is set up with EVO set, but i decided to change it, all. I want to play warm, harmonic sounds with a nice sustain and attack. Evo's are to cold and for me that...

    I am considering to replace the EVOs in my 7Vwh for PAF Pros as I am more into that 80s sound right now. What would you recommend me in the middle position? Thanks,

    Probably a long shot, but if anyone out there has a full Breed pickup set that they pulled out of their basswood JEM I would love to take it off your hands. Would also be interested in the individual pickups since I'll probably have to buy new if I don't find on here. No problem finding the...

    Does anyone else with a standard Jem 7VWH think that the middle pickup sounds a little weak. I know its just because its single coil but it really sounds terrible with my equipment. I want to find a better pickup... any suggestions?

    Up for sale is one DP171 Blue Velvet bridge model single coil pup. It's in excellent condition. Both cosmetically and functionally. The only negative thing I can say about it is that the leads have been extended. I bought this used off **** and the previous owner had shortened them. The guitar...

    Hi, I was hoping anyone could clarify/confirm the following: I've read that 'Middle C' is 261.63 Hz, right? Which is the lowest C you can play on a 6 string guitar? So would that mean that the highest note on a 61 key keyboard, is the C that can be played on the 20th position on the high E...

    Hey guys, I was just wondering if I can install a sustainiac single-coil driver in the middle position of my S prestige(it's H-S-H). Has anyone had any experience with this at all? I heard it wasn't recommended, but it doesn't mean it doesn't work, any advice would be awesome, thanks guys. :)
