    I bought an older Ibanez "V1" and banked it for the right project. I finally went to use it and it was no good. Of course it is way too late to contact the seller about it! So, it goes. Looking for another one, I found one on ebay with an "IBZ V1" stamp instead of the "V1" stamp like the one I...

    hello everyone, I own a Jem 777 30th anniversary DY, which I love until I plug it in my amp (Victory V40). For some reasons I really don't like how the pickups matches my other gear. I was wondering about replacing them with another DiMarzio set, ideally something with less output, closer to...

    Does anyone have any information on "Vintage" pickup used on the 1987 RG410/420/440 I've got a 1987 RG440. I like the bridge pickup, but I have been unable to find any information on it. It is simply labelled "Vintage" in metallic lettering. From what I can tell this was only used on the RG410...

    Hey all, I'm replacing the pots and pickup selector switch in my RG550 since they're starting to go, and I'm wondering what type of 5 way switch I can or should use? Is a standard Fender 5 way compatible with HSH wiring or do I need to buy the special Ibanez one? And will a fender switch fit on...

    Hi guys, Dimarzio gurus, I'm into extreme metal and I'm use to select pickups that usually have a high resistance. Just bought a Japanese B.C. Rich from the mid 90s and this Dimarzio pickup was in it (I doubt it's the original pup as they originally came with BCR pickups)...

    Hello Everyone, A few months back, I bought a second hand Ibanez S5470F (Red Viking). I'm still really amazed by this guitar's playability, and the only bad thing I can say about it is it could have more sustain, but this can easily be solved using pedals and it is to be expected with an Ibanez...

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations for a middle pickup for a basswood RG550? I am running a Dimarzio ToneZone in the bridge and Evolution in the neck, since I often seek out Vai and Gilbert tones. I've done extensive research and am torn between three different...

    I need help identifying a pickup set. The wiring colors are red, white, blue, black and bare. So, I have to assume they are Ibanez, but the only marking on the brass colored bottom plates are a R and F stamp. Oh and there are slugs on both the north and south (no adjustable pole pieces). I have...

    I'm trying to get the wiring correct to install a set of SD pickups in my RG920QM (H/H). I found the color codes and made the swaps doing the install, Red=Black; Black=White; White=Red; Green/Bare=Green/Bare, and after installing I got zero sound. I'm using the original hardware with the cor-tek...

    I just bought the guitar below, a 2003 Ibanez SA160 (for $180!!!!) and am really digging the single coil in the neck. According to the Ibanez wikia it is a Axis Single 2 (AS2) which the catalog describes as "Traditional sounding single coil pickup with increased output." and is ceramic. I have...

    I just bought my first Jem and I love the way it feels and plays but I think there may be a problem with the neck pick up. It's output seems to be about half of what the other two pick ups are. When I select either the fourth or fifth position on the five position switch the volume and drive...
  15. Pickups & wiring
    Hi all, I'm trying to decide which pickups I'd like in a Daemoness build that I have coming up in 2017. The issue I am having is that there are aspects of the different pickups I own that I like, which I wish I could combine, and a whole host of pickups I'd never tried. With the ability to try...

    Hi Everyone, My UV is a little under the weather... See the neck pickup? I can't raise it on the right side. Seems to be stripped enough so after a few turns of the height adjustment screw the spring pushes it back to the bottom. So what do I do now?

    Hello all. I'm going to state this here & now: I'm pretty much new to guitar. I've wanted to play pretty much my whole life as my dad is a musician, but anyway; onward. I just got my first guitar, an RG270. My goal as of now is to practice up enough to be able to bash out some Buzzsaw Swedish...
