    Here's a couple shots of the "relic" that's suppose to match Eds axe. If they can't match each other how can they match Eds? Just a thought.

    Do any of you guys have experience with Jackson Kellys? I'm seriously considering buying a KE2 next year as I'll be earning a proper salary at last. Like whats the OFR like, and what do you think of the pickup combination (SD Jazz and JB), thru-neck etc...

    I'm selling one of my 3120's. I have three: two blue ones and a black one. I'm selling one of the blue ones. It's in pretty good condition, sounds awesome, no problems. It has two small dings near the back and side (not visible from the front). The top is perfect except for an extremely...

    I've been doing some heavy research into DiMarzio lately, and I know some players here have put DiMarzios on their guitar(s). I have an Ibanez RG550RXX and, after reading the descriptions of just about every humbucker on their site, I have come to some ideas. -Tone Zone in Bridge/Air Norton in...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    Hi I'm trying to upgrade my ibanez RG with two evolutions and HS-2 in the middle because i'm a great Steve Vai fan and I found this on the FAQ section of the Dimarzio website: "I want to emulate the Vai pickup combination. What kind of single coil should I use? Evolution and JEM single-coils...

    I just got an RGA121NTF, and I love it, but I have a few ideas for it :D I'm thinking about getting a solid white German made No.1 guitar strap (The same elastic strap used by Buckethead), Schaller Strap-Locks of course, and some new pickups. A Dimarzio Air Norton in the neck, that is black and...

    I know sound clips are supposed to go in the Media forum, however I've noticed some people are asking how certain pickups sound and I figured I'd share a recent recording I made. The guitar is an RG3120 (mahogany body, maple top) with a Steve's Special in the bridge and an Air Norton in the...

    I know that these questions have been aksed so many times, but I need your help. I recently bought a RG 1527 which is a nice guitar, but I think the sound could be improved. I mostly play Dream Theater and progressive metal (speed picking etc.. = shred). Can you guys recommend a pickup...

    So Im pretty happy right now, I purchased a JEM7vwh from Guitar Center today and I love it. It's my first guitar with a locking trem and it is so fun just screwing around diving and messing with harmonics haha. I saved my first post on this forum for this message too haha....and here is a pic...
  13. Pickups & wiring
    Because of pickups I have currently available to me without having to buy anything else, I was just wondering what you guys thought of using an Evolution neck pickup in the bridge spot with a PAF Pro in the neck position. This will be going into an alder body guitar with a wrap around type...

    Hey guys, Wondered if anyone could help here. My 7621's bridge pickup has some issues - microphonic I think - and I'm going to buy a replacement. However, a real problem with researching into buying pickups is that they all seem to have great reviews! So the choice is rather hard. Anyone with...

    Hey folks, Just thought I would post some pics of my new project guitar. It started out as a neck I bought from Gary (the.godfoather) here on the forum about 2-3 years ago and a lo-pro I bought from Rich about 6-7 years ago. Finally got round to ordering a swirl from Herc and acquiring the...

    It amazes me how much technology has moved on over the last half century, yet with guitars, pretty much the same technology is used today as from when the likes of Leo Fender was messing around in his tool shed 50+ years ago. I've been playing guitar for around 15 years now, and only got round...

    Hello. I have just bought a '03 rg 3270 but it is from stocks so it has never been used before me =) It is totally new and cool =) problem is : It has two Paf pro's which is not for me. Their output is very low and tone character is not for me. I am planning to buy 2 new humbuckers. Seymour...
