  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    So, I'm wondering as there are light-up dots on the fret, has anyone done a light-up tree of life at all? Is it even possible? I'm guessing so, but who would be mad enough to do it? Thanks! Just found this....
  2. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Would it be sacrilegious to turn my old 550 into an HH and take out the middle single coil? I've been putting A LOT of thought into getting a Carvin lately (and I DO want one at some point, such nice guitars) but I'm thinking that in order to save some money to change my 550 into an HH guitar...
  3. Pickups & wiring
    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. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Hey all, I just purchased a great trans-black RGA42FM. The neck is pretty good and action is pretty decent out of the box. I really love The Wizard II neck though and am wondering if it'll fit this guitar. Maybe even a Wizard III? Any advice, suggestions, greatly appreciatted. -MIKE
  5. Pickups & wiring
    Hey all, as a follow-on to the work I did with the V7/V8 pickups last year I thought it might be time to do some similar experiments with the DiMarzio/IBZ found in some of the Prestige guitars. I know that many aren't entirely happy with the tones they get from these stock pickups, so I...
  6. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    So I bought an MT-2 from a friend to try out a mod that a local pedal builder developed. Right before it was tweaked I did get to try out the "raw" sound of the Metal Zone, which a lot of players dislike. IMO, through a good tube amplifier the normally harsh frequencies of the pedal are...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    I'm planning on doing some DIY experiments with some Ibanez V7 and V8 pickups soon. Swapping magnets, half air, filtering caps, etc. I want to know what sort of issues people have with the stock V series, see if I can work out some nice cheap mods that might give people what they want when...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    Thanks for the advice from people back in the setting up a Tone Zone thread I started earlier this week. Much appreciated. :) In light of the discussion regarding the "half-air" modification that a number of people have done to Tone Zones and other pickups, I decided to try the mod myself...
  9. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    (So I am a total n00b when it comes to any sort of modification with guitars). I am buying a RG170 for around $100 for fun. I was going to try and make it a guitar I can modify - i.e. change the pickups etc. Which brings me to my question: Can I change the pick ups to - Neck: a DiMarzio®...
  10. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    I've been playing with stomp boxes lately, with some pretty cool results. I thought I would start a thread for people who have tinkered with their pedals, or built ones to post their stuff. Doesn't matter if it's a common mod, or your own amazing creation. Throw up your pedals. :) My DS-1...
  11. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    Hey all, some questions for those who have modded their Boss DS-1s. I'm using my DS-1 as an overdrive for my Blackstar HT-5 head. I'm quiet liking the tone, but the unwanted noise is a little annoying. What have people done to their DS-1s to at least make it a quieter pedal, and maybe even...
