    Has anyone tried making their own BPSSC? Seems simple enough for someone with a little knowledge about making pickups... I have none. The price is prohibitive for me right now and it seems overpriced anyway. I have a friend who makes pedals and kit amps who could probably help me out but I'd...

    Would buying a Noise Suppressor pedal stop the buzz from the single coil on a Rg5EX1 and the neck pickup or should I just get new pickups?

    I bought some pickups from a Fender dealer on the bay back in March. I finally got around to installing them in May and couldnt get the middle pickup to work. In June I finally decided to take it to a tech and let his figure out what I did wrong. Turns out it was a bad pickup. I couldnt go back...

    I got my new American Deluxe QMT a week or so ago. I really dig it and the S1 system is pretty hip. I really like the ebony board. I dig the quilt and the wavy grain. Almost like having a flame and quilt in one guitar. The SCN pups are nice and lowered are very mellow which I dig. The DH-1 is...

    I bought this the other day and it need a little bit of work. The Bridge was tarnished but after a little polish and eblow grease it shines very nice. Frets were in good shape but need a leveling so I did that (my first time) and a good job I must say so. A little Fret Doctor on the fingerboard...

    I'm having a custom strat built by a very talented guy in Florida, but in the mean time I wanted to find a good backup guitar to match the strat that's being built - (it will be my #1). I hate to say it, but I'm moving away from Jems and Universes at this point and back to Strats. The custom...

    Okay, So I bought a Steve's Special to replace the PAF pro in the bridge of my RGT3120. Now, I was under the impression that while the PAF pro is a great pickup, it's less than ideal for gain-soaked metal riffage. Being in a metal band, I thought I'd better order a higher output pickup to...

    Hey all, I'm looking for a set of pups to replace the stock ones in an 80's MIJ Squier strat. I'd be looking for a vintage strat sound, without the hum. I'm thinking maybe Vintage noiseless . . . Thoughts?

    I have a Surf green (MIM) 1999 '57 Stratocaster. I love the feel, and the maple 'v' neck, and the tone is good...but the stock pickups make that "noise". I would like a good replacement set (all 3) for this guitar that keep the Strat-Fender tone but have more flexibility toward humbucker-like...

    OK I have been commissioned to do a "inspired by John Mayer" Relic from a customer. He loves the look of Johns Custom Shop Fender relic but wanted a few twists. Alder body Maple Neck/Rosewood Fretboard Vintage Nickel Hardware through out versus the gold Single ply White pickguard versus the...

    Yeah kind of a weird question, and I wasn't even really sure where to post this. I discovered that running my late 80's MIJ strat with upgraded fender noiseless single coils into my modded DS1, INTO my Marshall Guv'nor pedal, into my VOX Valvetronix on a *slightly* distorted amp...

    Also posted this at Dimarzio Forum Okay, posting a sound clip here of my own work... My question is, which pickup would I get in order to achieve this tone? http://web.mac.com/nickdeshpande/iWeb/Site/Podcast/53C2BF54-2767-405A-AE00-E2ABF68F30A7.html The other thing is, my playing is VERY...

    My JS1000BP for your white Jeff Beck strat or American Deluxe HSS strat. The Jeff Beck can be any era...the one with the lace sensors or the new one with the hot vintage noiseless pickups. Doesn't matter. It just needs to be olympic white. That surf green is hideous. The American Deluxe...
