  3. Pickups & wiring
    I'm probably kicking a dead horse here, but after a forum search I couldn't find this exact mod, so I may as well share it for anyone who wants to try it. A little over a year ago I picked up a pristine Prestige 1570, pristine apart from the fact that the previous owner had his replacement...

    Hi there, I'm pretty to all this stuff and was wondering which configurations my completely stock RG870z H/S/H is using in position 2 and 4. I suspect it's splitting the humbucker and putting it in series with the single but I'm unsure. I don't have enough tonal experience to determine if...

    OK, so I brought my (2) guitars, ESP LTD Mh1000NT and Schecter Loomis 7string for setup. I had brought my guitars to the tech before and he did a good job. Today, he was in a rush it seemed and was suppose to leave at 5pm (I got there at 4:50pm). But he agreed to stay and finish the guitars...
  11. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I've been working on the setup of my RG520QS, and doing my damndest to get the thing parallel. I know it's the bottom of the base plate that needs to be parallel- but on my guitar, the bottom of the base plate is not really visible as it's recessed into the tremolo cavity. How can you tell...

  17. Pickups & wiring
    I was looking at the Artist Prestige AR300RE and the AR5000RE and the two switches for making the humbuckers Series/Parallel/Split seems an intriguing idea. But looking at the Ibanez Parts Catalog last night, I couldn't find the switches for sale by themselves. And Stew Mac didn't seem to have...
