i play mostly classic and hard rock. i don't have an amp that I own, i just use the amps that are available at the...
Just back from holiday and thought I'd post a few pics of my new amp.
Laney Lionheart - Beautiful cleans and great crunchy rock tone too. It needs a pedal in front of it for a killer lead tone. I'm experimenting with my GT8 at the minute
This is my 1st tube amp and I'm really...
Hey there guys.
I'm having a spot of trouble in deciding which RG guitar to buy.
I pretty much play anything and everything and i'm in a jazz trio, a neoclassical metal band and a Rage Against The Machine Covers band.
I have chosen to buy an RG because they are very versatile guitars.
I'm wondering if anyone can help me.
I want to wire my Ibanez RG4EX1 so that it has the same pickup selection as the Ibanez SV5470:
I bought the following:
Bridge pickup - Dimarzio D activator X
Middle Pickup - Dimarzio Fast track 1
On my RG321MH I measured the total pickup resistance for each of the 5 positions of the switch and got the following:
1 (Bridge Hum) : 16.0 kohm
2 (Bridge-Neck coil tap) : 3.8 kohm
3 (Bridge-Neck Hum) : 6.8 kohm
4 (Neck parallel) : 3.0 kohm
After doing a lot of reading I think I have decided I like the description of the Dimarzio Steve's Special & Breed pickups. Would this combination work in a Jem? I'de thought a SS Bridge, & Breed (M) & Neck!!!
Does anyone have this setup? Unfortunatley OZ Dealers aren't helpful when it comes to...
New to the site and I need some direction.
When I was younger, I lived with my parents and I had a job at a local Guitar Center. I bought and sold a lot of gear. I went through a vwh back when they had ebony boards, had a mystic jpm6, prestige 1570, and I finally settled in on a EB JPM6 Lava...

I have an RG1570, from around 2003 and I just swapped out my standard V7, S1 and V8 for: Tone Zone, HS-2 and a Air Norton.
Now, the two humbuckers sound great, but when I switch into positions 2 and 4, which is supposed to have half bucker+single it sounds VERY tinny, looses its volume alot...

I just sold one of my RG3120's (I have two more) and have some money to spend. Last weekend, I was able to play an RGT320Q and instantly fell in love with it. What a freaking beautiful instrument. I had pretty much decided to use the RG3120 money to partially fund the RGT320Q.
Then, I was...
Neck: Rosewood board / 3pc Maple back
I've got the stock V7/S1/V8, and am looking for:

Hi guys, i've recently bought some new pickups for my 1820X I decided on the air norton (a favourite it seems!), for the neck, and the D sonic (not so well liked :P), for the bridge, to replace the v7/v8.
Now my question is this... I cant wire the DM's by saying green to green, red to red etc...
I recently installed a Dimarzio Super Distortion 3, into the bridge of my RG2 Giger. and it sounds awesome. I now bought a Pafpro and put it in the neck position. But for the life of me I can't get the wiring correct.
I got red, white, black, silver and blue wires going into the...
