    Hello everybody just recieved my brand new Ibanez RGD 7 string!! Iv had a liquifire and d-activator before but found they weren't quite enough for me. Last guitar had EMG 707's and i loved it BUT i did notice the infamou lack of different styles they can do well. I want something that can do...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, guys! I have installed a Fernandes 401 in my RG 550 and it seem to work as it should, BUT.... when I adjust the FGC pot to adjust the output of the sustainer driver in the neck position its the output of the EVO 2 in the bridge that is affected. Is this right?? I thought that the FGC pot was...
  3. Pickups & wiring
    Hey, It is a common issue for the Output jack nut to come loose often, and I am having this problem with all of my guitars... First is my Ibanez RG350dx, the washer is loose, keep having to unscrew the plate and pinch the back and tighten the front, the screw holes are beggining to get chewed...

    Today whilst playing my Ibanez JPMP2 I noticed something strange when adjusting the tone control whilst using the neck pickup. Playing primarily jazz at the moment I have the tone on around 3 using the neck pickup, however the sound was not as full and mellow as it normally was, it was still...

    The *NEW* EMG X Series Pickups are here, great tone, here's a bit more from EMG about them: "These pickups have an exceptional organic nature to their overall sound due to a newly designed internal pre-amp, which allows for more gain to come from your amp and instrument, rather than from the...
  9. Pickups & wiring
    Hi dudes, I'm a long time lurker, first time poster here. Thanks for having me 8) Anyway, I'm trying to install an EMG 81/85 into my Ibanez 2550z. The EMG output jack won't fit in the slot, but the Ibanez jack appears to be stereo and I read that it should work. It's one of the barrel type...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I was wondering if I could wire a humbucker straight into an output jack with a tone cap between the output and pickup and an on/off 2 way flipper switch. Would I still get a 'shrill' sound?
  11. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    i noticed today the input jack on my prestige RG seemed kinda looser than before. also, when it's plugged into an amp if you touch the lead a bit (eg. wobble it slightly, push it around) the sound cuts out. i've had 3 performances in the last 3 days and i'm wondering if i might have stepped on...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, looked everywhere for this and can't find it :S. Does anyone know the output in mV (milli-volts) of an EMG 81 and/or an EMG 85? I'm looking to compare these pickups to dimarzio specs in terms of output. Many thanks Regards Jon
  13. Pickups & wiring
    Wired a killswitch into my thinline tele in place of neck tone control. Basically, it's a two way switch just before the output jack with position one wired up and two grounded. The only problem is that it hums a bit in the "off" position as though some signal is getting through or it's not...
  14. Pickups & wiring
    In a previous thread I opened some time before someone said some high output pickups might have a low magnetic field. That means there might be a high output pickup that I can put relly close to the strings without decreasing the sustain. I am really interested in that. If anyone knows a...
  15. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    Ok, so, I bet this question comes up quite once in a while. I need some sorta way to record my music. Now, my problem is, that I need to record the OUTPUT, not the INPUT from line-in. (so basically I need to record what would come out of the speakers/headphones.) That is because I use Guitar FX...
