    I just received my ibanez rg1570l and i want to change the pickups. I am going to put a Tonezone in the bridge and a PAF Pro in the neck. I know the tonezone needs to be f-spaced but what about the PAF Pro in the neck position? Does the neck position also have to be F-spaced? If it isn't will...

    Those of you who have played these, what is the defineing difference? I plan on getting a RG soon and want a sound to contrast with my Evo's. I want a pickup that warmer than my Evo's that will cover from fusion to metal.(Bridge)

    I've put a AN7 in the neck position of my RG1527 and I wonder if changing orientation (screw pole pieces towards neck or towards bridge) would alter significantly the tone. I have put mine with the screws on the neck side. I wonder because the AN7 does not sound as I expected and I have seen...

    I'm selling my Ibanez SZ320MH. I've done a few mods to it that have improved the guitar quite a bit. Very good condition as you can see from the photos. With my mods I'd say much better than new. There are some small scratches and dings here and there. Nothing major. Overal the guitar...

    I was wondering because it looks like the Paf Joe but the reviews on harmony central everyone was saying the neck is a Paf Pro. I just tried a JS2000 at a local music store and the neck p/u tone just blew me away!!!!
