I want to buy an Ibanez s521L MOL left handed. Currently I'm using a Cort M600 with a 6 way toggle switch, bridge, inner coils, neck one side series the other the same but everything in parallel. MY question is can I do the same with a 3 way blade switch + installing a parallel switch? To...
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...
I have a Cort m600, witch has a 3 way toggle, 1 vol, 1 push-pull pot.
I want to have parallel mode with the push-pull, which I was told it cannot be done.
I've read, that with this it can be done:
I have a jem505 and I decided to change pickups. I decided for Evo for neck, Injector bridge for middle and D Activator for bridge. When I buy them I want to experiment with different possibilites like series parallel and coil splitting. I know how to draw a diagrams for different wirings...
currently my Ibanez RG fixed bridge guitar has a 2-humbucker setup with a stock Ibanez 5way switch:
Bridge + neck inner coil
Bridge and Neck
my pickups are the Dimarzio Tone Zone and PAF Pro.
back then I had a 5-way superswitch where I had the 2nd...
1. What type of music do you like? Be specific about bands or particular guitarists. Dream Theater, Metallica, Protest the Hero, Dire Straits, Weezer, a lot of 90s covers, any kinda darker blues sound.
2. What type of equipment are you going to be playing through? A 10 watt...
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...
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...
I have a standard Ibanez 5 way switch in my s1625 and I'd like to keep it's standard wiring with my new pickup. I haven't been able to find any QM1 to Dimarzio colour charts anywhere but this is the way I want it wired:
Position 1: neck (series)
Position 2: neck (parallel)
Position 3: neck and...
I am looking for a diagram on how to wire a HSH 5-way swtich guitar like the following:
2. Neck Parallel
4. Mid + Bridge
I would like to change my current position 2 from neck+middle, to neck parallel most importantly, but I am having a hard time figuring...
I'm looking to improve my pickup wiring options so I need to know if it's possible to take my HSH setup from my RG570 one step above. My pickups are a Seymour Duncan 59 (neck) IBZ/USA (middle) and SD TB-11 Custom Custom (bridge) plus push-pull volume for coil tap (HSH <---> SSS). So what I want...
Hi I need help with wiring my HSS strat. It has a standard (fender) 5-way switch and my question is can it be wired like this:
position 1: just the humbucker - series
position 2: just the humbucker - parallel or just one coil of the humbucker
position 3: just the middle pickup
im wiring up my rg520 with a tone zone/ air norton set, and can get every position to work, except for the second witch should be the neck wired in parallel. this is the diagram i used, replacing the blue with green, and followed it word for word.
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...
Here's a wiring diagram I used to wire up a dual HB guitar with push/pull pots on the tone controls to allow series/parallel wiring. I want to add another switch to put the neck pickup in and out of phase. Will my handwritten modifications to the diagram achieve this?
[See below for diagram]
I'm new around here and the guitar world altogether, I have yet to finish my first year of playing, but I like electronics and looking for some replacement pickups for my Ibanez GIO (GRG-270) I came across all sort of wiring information, so until my order arrives (Bill&Becky L500XL and L90)...
