    I've got an Evolution in a RG270. Honestly, I think it screams. After searching the site here, it seems about split down the middle. Some say Evos sound like crap with basswood, others say they rip. Breeds seem to be the pup of choice for basswood. So either we've got serious tone...
  2. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Hello everyone.........I recently bought a RG1570 and i think the guitar is just amazing but i want to change the stock pickups for either the DiMarzio Evolution,Breed or Super Distortion but i cant decide on which one! I`m leaning towards the Evolutions but i`ve heard they dont produce much...
  3. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I've sold a couple guitars over the past few weeks, and now I'm selling my skydiving rig. When all is said and done, I'm seriously considering buying another Jem. I still have a Strat, and when I owned a DBK and a UVMC, I still couldn't go more than a half hour with one of the other guitars...

  6. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    So I've decided to save up for a new guitar. I originally had my mind set on a Mirage Blue Rg1570, but I recently saw a picture of Mr. Vai with his Bad Horsie Jem, and I decided that would be a wonderful guitar to have as well. But seeing that I'm not made of money, it's gonna have to be one...

    3 Years after a hard recovery from G.A.S., I finally become a Jem owner again. Got a fairly good deal off evilbay for a 88 JEM777DY. For a player condition guitar, this one is really sweet - only a few chips and dings, very few scratches on the pickguard (which is rare) and the maple board is...

  9. Pickups & wiring
    Hello everyone, I noticed on my Jem that the pickup wiring is slightly wrong.... the fourth position (middle and neck) is the neck side of the humbucker and single instead of the middle and middle side of humbucker. Anyway, i thought i`d lift the scratchplate and have a look and there is no...

    Okay, I have playing both of these guitars for the last 2 weeks at a local shop and love them both. So now I am looking for your opinion? I know it is hard to compare these guitars because of their significant differences, but what do you think? Which should I go with?
  13. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Been going through steve's site, and was looking at the biography of Evo and it turns out the trem cavity at the back has been stuffed with tissue. The basis of this is apparently to eliminate tremolo noise that is picked up by the pickups, but i wonder how effective this really is. What do you...
  14. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    I've decided to buy one of these guitars, but I'm not sure which one. Which one, and why ? If I buy the RGT I would probably change pickups to the ones in the 8670. The 8670 has the pickups I want, but the RGT is neckthrough. Is the neckthrough worth changing pickups? If you know what I mean...
  15. Pickups & wiring
    I'm interested in Installing my MIA Strat with an EMG SA set, but I'd like some hands on experience from someone who's already done it before. I'm wanting to preserve the strat tone as best I can, as well as The typical glassy Icepick attack, and the sweet position 2 and 4 sound. The reason I...

  20. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I have a js and I love the way it keeps a somewhat clean tone no matter how much gain I throw at it. It's easy to keep solos clean with this guitar. But, on my other guitars, the notes just sound a little fizzier if you know what I mean. Anyway, I wondered if it was due to the basswood body...
