    Hi, I bought an used RG3120, I want to know how can I adjust the height of the pickup, because the pickup is mounted directly to the wood without springs, like in my old RG 7620, is this normal? or is because somebody has removed before? Thanks for your reply!

    Sup guys I have a problem that has been slowly eating away at me for the past few weeks, pickup height. I have an RG with Dimarzios. I have done some surfing, but figured I would get the best feedback here. Not sure how far away from strings Pups should be, (too high=muddy cleans, too low=not...

    Hi all. Had my pickups changed in my H-S-H style Pacifica the other day ( it's my favourite guitar so I had it done by a pro as I'm not experienced at soldering and pickup wiring yet.) He mentioned the pickups were at the right height, but the humbuckers seem rather low to be honest. The...

    My guitar has a 5 way switch and i want to know, If i installed a new pickup would it still have the 5 distinct tones or does it have to be wired in some special way? Thanks for your time.

    This post is going to be a little lengthy, so please bare with me. I'm a little confused about what to do with my guitars, a Jackson rr24 and Ibanez UV777BK. They are complete opposites. (yeah I know, surprize right?)The EMG 81 in the RR24 is absolutely awesome for shredding, and has great...

    First let me ask a questions. Have you ever bought a new guitar that out of the box (not including Richs guitars) that the factory set up kicked ass and needed no tweaking?\ I just got my new American Strat Deluxe QMT and the factory setup was horrible. Action to high, neck angle need...

    Hey, I've recently bought an Ibanez Jem 7VWH. Since I'm a new entry in the electric guitar world, I would like to refer to some problems I've encountered so far. Problem A: When I play for ie 1-2 hours continuously I notice that the high (treble) E or/and the B and/or the G string are getting...

    Hi, what are the differences between these 2 body types? Is the tone/volume/switch at same place? Is there differences in the body shape? How about the finish? Im asking because i started to think of adjusting the pickup height. In rg560 you cant screw the singlecoil pickups in there...

    I can't seem to get the adjustment on this right...new strings (9 thru 42) and I can't seem to get a pickup height that doesn't sound overly muddy with distortion...even with tone on 10. Help?

    What can I do? I'm not that familiar with the electronics of Ibanez guitars, so I'm not sure if a pot value change or a tone cap change would work. Stock IBXUSA pups. Like I said...just looking to brighten the guitar up a little bit. Thanks!

    One of my guitars is a cheap Squire Stratocaster by Fender, which has always had 0.009mm strings on it. It is not a Floyd Rose guitar. I don't know how it's called in English, but it has a tremolo arm without locking tuners. Anyway, I want to install 0.010mm strings on it, but I don't know if I...

    Hi guys. Well I can not lower my bridge pickup anymore. The clearance is now 2mm for the bridge pickup when I depress the 24th fret. Is it too close to the strings or something? What's your pickup height?

    I've used rack systems and emg's for a long time. Today I wired some Dimarzio's into an RG1570 and tried them through my rack presets. But they came out a bit weaker than the EMG's and the noise gates ate them up considerably quicker than they would my EMG's. Are the dimarzio's just...

    Hello there... I'm new to the forum, and got my first Ibanez today after being a Jackson and Fender user for years. I was forced to return my fairly new Jackson DK2M because there was a problem with the tremolo system I couldn't fix, and since DK2M's are out of stock in the UK I decided to buy...

    I've got 2 rg470s. They are circa 2000. I love 'em. I've had some problems with the volume pots. One volume knob, even when fully counter clockwise, does not cut volume to 0. It sounds like the volume is 1. And my humbuckers seem to sink into the body. So, what mods would I do, to upgrade to...
