    I hate sharp pick attack, so I've been looking at dark, smooth pickups, but I always find the neck to be too fat in comparison to the bridge. I always assumed bright pickups would be very sharp sounding, but from what I've read the paf joe actually has a very subdued, dull pick attack. Is this...

    Hi there Since a few months I became a bit bored by the EQ of the paf joe in neck position of my RG550, and after modifying the tone circuit (which eventually ended by reducing most of the overtones, harmonics) I decided to go with a paf pro. I installed in this week I must say that I'm...

    Last year I struggled finding pups and a config (tone circuit) that could tame the brightness of my Kawai Aquarius. I bought a FRED and was way to much trebly to me and had a chance to deal it with a norton. I had a double whammy in neck position which I took of my RG 550 LTD and replaced by a...

    Good Morning, or Day or Night everyone. Not too long ago, I bought a new guitar, and I really like it, so much so, that, in due time, I will probably review the guitar and post some pictures as well. The only thing I am not too happy with are the pickups. It came with an Ibanez INF3 at the neck...

    Hi everyone; Just picked up a used 2009 JS100 (made in Indonesia). I believe the pickups were upgraded with the neck pickup being a DiMarzio Mo Joe and bridge pickup being a PAF Joe. Not sure of a couple of things as its my first Ibanez. Also, as per the manual I am assuming the volume knob...

    Recently I started using my USA strat into a Fender amp with my band, but missed the humbucker sound, so I decided I wanted to put something in that wouldn't be superhigh output, and would have vintage character. I had a PAF Joe sitting in my pickup box, and figured, Hell, it's a vintage voiced...

    I have a RG470AH, Swamp ash and basically unfinished. The swamp ash tone is definitely present. Being a huge Petrucci fan and after reading a lot of good reviews, I bought the liquifire and crunch lab set. After playing with them for about a month, I think the voicing is very particular. They...

    RG770FM in player condition - I'd call it 6/10 conservatively - great playing and sounding guitar. One of the heaviest RGs I've owned - it's a nice chunk of wood. Bought it with intent to do a little fixing up, but it doesn't play like it needs any fixing, still looks great as far as I'm...

    Hello! :D So, here's the deal. I'm going the replace the pickups in my Ibanez S470DXQM since the stock ones (INF1, INF2 & INFS1) simply don't deliver the sounds I'm looking for. To me, they sound in a way I can't describe in any other way than "dead". They seem to miss this little special thing...

    Ok, since the first time I laid my eyes on Neville, I knew it was the perfect JEM look for me... Even before it was auctioned on Ebay... Anyway, I engaged into a long process of having a clone built, or as I like to say, what a factory version of Neville would have looked like (the same, plus...

    Hey guys, so I normally don't do this about pickups (just about everything else) but I was curious what ya guys have to say I want a bridge pickup with a big open sound with a somewhat round top end but maintains good amount of attack. Like a Screamin Demon with a smooth top end. And I want a...
