  1. Pickups & wiring
    Hi there, I am new to the forum, but I hope that you will not ignore my message :) My question concerns the Ibanez FR365 with HS (Tone Core) pickups. I have been wondering for some time that I should upgrade those and find something better. I have decided upon buying DiMarzio Tone Zone as...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Hi I looking to replace the pickups on my rg with some irongear steam hammers. What do you think I should do replace them or keep the normal pups.
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Just wondering if anyone knows of any UK-based after-market dealers or luthiers who could sort me out with a 24-fret AANJ neck? I'm building a project guitar and have a body ready, but now need a neck (and don't trust myself to build a nice one just yet haha). It doesn't have to be too fancy...

    Hi, I was looking at the Andy Timmons signature models because I love his tone. At the same time, I don't see why to pay a lot of extra $ just for a signature model. What Ibanez models would you recommend in terms of playability/mechanical set-up/quality? My plan is only to replace pick-ups...
  5. Pickups & wiring
    Hi all! I've been comtemplating and researching on winding pickups and/or modding them for a while now. I never followed throught with it but after reading LonePhantom's thread on modding the V7/V8 pups I've been reinspired to give it another go. While there are more than enough resources on...

    So I have 2 S Series Guitars with HSH configurations. I am planning on putting noiseless strat pups in the mid positions. Heres why; I want the middle positions to be noiseless, but I want stacked buckers so I can wire the switches to coil tap both the middle and the neck/bridge when in position...
  7. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Looking to do some mods to my 1989 RG570 Lefty, Dark Blue. Want to first add the jem mods, the monkey grip and the lions claw. Then repaint it a solid color. Anybody have any suggestions for where to go for the mods/cuts? And/or a combination place that will also do the paint? Thanks.
  8. Forum Announcements and Member Help
    I was just curious if this was possible. I think it would be a fun variable to the forum, and would encourage even more helpful advice (even though we're all full of wonderful advice already) For those of you who don't know it's just a reputation system. You can rep each other and give good...

    Alright Jemsiters--this is another "Alaskabat Gives Back To The Community" thread. Ever since you folks found out that I mod pedals, then started building my own--a bunch of you have pounded me with questions. I know several of you are pretty handy with a soldering iron, too. What I'd like to...

    So I'm wanting to mod my ibanez SA160 (i believe that's the model number) to sound more like a blues tele. Would love to get as close to vintage blues/tube sound as I can. I know it also has a lot to do with the amp but want to do what I can with the guitar first. I have been playing for over...

  12. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi all. I was hoping someone could help me out as I am new to guitar mods. I have a 2003 Rg1570 with an edge pro trem and a prestige super wizard neck. I hate the single coil cavity and I want to swap everything into a RDG 320 body. My question is: Will my rg1570 guts fit into that body? I think...

  14. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I am interested in knowing if a saddle for the Edge trem can replace a saddle for the Edge III trem system. What I wish to do is to mod my trem to accept the EVH drop-D add-on to allow the floating trem to quickly adjust between Std and drop-D tuning. any advise would be welcome.

  17. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello all! Been browsing this forum again, as I often do when guitar thoughts are stirring in my brain... Anyway, my brother got an Epiphone SG G-310 as his first guitar several years ago. It had plenty of problems: loose tuning pegs, didn't stay in tune, finished neck (ugh), stripped screws...

    In the continuing inability to leave stock models, well, stock...I decided to make some changes to the Apex. :)
  19. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the Thermion. I bought one from a guy almost new old stock. The clean channel sounds absolutely incredible, the dirty channel....not so hot, even with the gain full bore. I was wondering if anyone can recommend any tubes or mods to me. I want to...
