    After a bit of help from you guys.... Now that I have taken all that gold hardware off my jem 7vwh and started playing it again, I am finding that i have to back off to 1 on the volume before there is a noticable clean up of the sound. (Semi high gain on a fender supersonic) On my pgm, which i...

    Though i might have played it a few times,and the pick ups are faded and the volume knobs are half faded and there might be a bit of material seeping out and there might be a few lacquer chips but it plays like a dream. Hi to everyone http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x6/maffster/jecm.jpg

    Hi, I have just bought a jem body from Simms and am looking to make up the guitar. Neck : RG / Jem neck 'all access'. Ideally I would like a maple fret board, but let see what there is.... Edge Pro Trem in Cosmo or black. DiMarzios two humbuckers and a single coil gain let me know what you...

    I went a little crazy a couple of days ago and purchased a jem 10th. I had to get the wifes permission of course after purchasing a BFP only 6 months ago. I tell you, it was scary to replace the strings on this guitar but I had to because I'm using 10 gauge. It is so beautiful and clean. it was...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    Because of pickups I have currently available to me without having to buy anything else, I was just wondering what you guys thought of using an Evolution neck pickup in the bridge spot with a PAF Pro in the neck position. This will be going into an alder body guitar with a wrap around type...

    I have a jem dbk that works perfect and I just got an old jem bsb with some problems the bridge pickup is really weak sounding and the tone seems to affect the bridge volume. Can any one say if the two should be wired the same ? so I can just copy the dbk or has anybody got any ideas ? ( I...

    On the eve of the JEM20th announcement, it has become necessary to start a single, organized, contained thread where Ibanez customers of past and present can convey their dissatisfaction of the JEM/UV line to Steve Vai (and indirectly to Ibanez). Some of you are misguided in that you think...

    yess. i have an S470 : D I have a tone zone which used to be in my rg now i sold, but i dont like how it sounds in my s470, i like the sound but the distortion seems to be a bit muddy and dies out with no sustain I dont want x2n or d-sonic, and more output than tone zone. how would super...

    I heard this somewhere about some of his guitars. Is this the case?

    Hi, it's my first post here and I wanna present you my work in progress. It's a brand new JEM333 (Jem JR) that I modified with the folowing: - Bridge and Neck Evo pickups (It was meant to be white... but when It came... surprise... black pups) - Middle HS-3 pickup - Gotoh Chrome Floyd Rose...

    After three weeks without my guitar due to the first guitar tech causing a whole load of trouble, i have it back, with new pups! they sound absolutley fantastic :D the new evo 2 is certainly a tweaked up version of its older brother - harmonics are effortless, it has the sound of a chainsaw and...

    So, I played a buddy's 707-equipped guitar the other night. My first time playing EMG's, and while I've always been a low-to-mid output sort of guy, I was surprised to find I liked the basic EQ curve a lot more than I thought I would. They had a slightly scooped lower midrange and better attack...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    First, I have an RG7421 with an Evo in the bridge, but stock Vwhatever in the neck. Would a Blaze be a good neck match, or is that not high enough output? I haven't been able to find any Blaze Customs anywhere in black, or I'd go with that. Second: I have an Ibanez SZ720...
  17. Pickups & wiring
    I'm thinking of trying something new for tube driven tone, so thinking of a Super distortion or Super 3 in the bridge. What would mate well with this for the neck? Super 2?
  18. Pickups & wiring
    Heloo (again) :) I'm just about to purchase a bridge pickup for my 7vwh and wondered which would make the best partner for the Evo neck pickup....taking into consideration that i want something that gives me great harmonics and enough output to match the Evo (i am quite happy to adjust the...

    I have one of these at the moment, but its an odd one. I picked this up from a very trusted second hand retailer, and its got the rockwood pickguard, the specs are the same. however, its body is a greeny mossy like cover, and the shop owner said it was never furnished, and is kept green and...

    Ok, so I built a guitar with Evos in. Evo in the neck evo single, and evo2 for the bridge. Basically a basswod RG, with a schaller bridge. Lots of people asked me what they were like before I had finished the project. I actually played the guitar with a drummer over the weekend, through a big...
