  1. Pickups & wiring
    I'm looking to do some modifications to my Jem Jr's pickups in order to achieve at least a somewhat similar tone to Steve's. I'm thinking about swapping the stock pickups with a Paf Pro for the neck and an Evolution 1/2 for the bridge of the guitar to match those of the pickups found in Steve's...

    Hey, I'm looking for opinions on replacement pickups. I've got a late 80's RG 760, and an RG 550. I used to have EMG's and thought they were great until one day, I played a friends Gibson V with a 500T in it running through my amp set up. It was a very noticeable difference in tone and feel...
  3. Pickups & wiring
    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...
  4. Pickups & wiring
    Does anyone know where I can find a pink cover for my s1? I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find one that fits. I ordered some from Dimarzio but they didn’t fit. I’m going for the JEM 777 look and this is all I have missing.
  5. Pickups & wiring
    I recently purchased an RG560 and I want to replace the single-coil in the neck with a high gain single coil. I mostly use the EVO 1 in all of my Ibanez's shredders so I'm looking for something as close to that as I can find. I've read some good things about the Bare Knuckle Cobra and the...
  6. Pickups & wiring
    I have a stock Ibanez SV5470A S shape, mahogany body, rosewood board, non locking trem, 5 way switch with a push pull knob for coil splitting. I find the stock Ibanez True Duo Blast pickups are a bit bland and want to swap them out to something more suited for my taste. I play hard rock and...
  7. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I've recently purchased a JEM 7V-WH and, although the Evolution pickups have their special character, I prefer the Suhr Doug Aldrich (currently installed on my RG550LTD) or the Dimarzio Gravity Storm (currently unused). The Evos have a kind of "crunch" or "grit" while the Aldrich and the GS are...

    Hey, looking for either an Air Norton in F space configuration, any color, and a decent single coil for my RG2770Z project. Lacks pickups and I have a TZ, already, just need the rest. Please include a shipping price to 60452. I will consider any other good neck and middle pickups as well, but AN...

    I have an Ibanez SF420FM. I'm interested in changing the pickups. Nothing is wrong with the ones in, I just want to step it up. I know little to nothing about pickups, I'm a very beginner but don't mind "spending up" for the future..within reason. I want the quality to be what "I will be" in...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I'm considering the purchase of a guitar that apparently has these single coil pickups in it. Does anyone know anything about them? A Google search comes up blank, except to list a few guitars they were installed in. Thanks!
  11. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I got a 92 RG550 in Candy Apple Red a few years ago, mainly because I always wanted one when I was a teenager. I didn't play it that much since I am more into straight ahead jazz, but I am in a fusion kick lately so I have been practicing this kind of stuff. So I decided to pull out the RG550...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    I need some help with a pick up configuration. I picked up a J Custom two years ago from a limited run. The RGA8420. I purchased some lace finger burners because I purchased the blue model. I have configured pick ups before but I have never seen this thing between the pots. I will show you...

    How do these two sets of pickups compare? I currently have an RG652AHM for E standard and I'm looking at getting an RGR652AHBF for drop C.
  15. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    I have an RG652AHM with the tone zone/air norton combo but I'm looking at getting an RGR652AHBF for drop C, and it has fusion edge pickups, similar to the indonesian iron and axion label and some other prestiges. Why does ibanez put fusion edges in some of the prestiges and some have the air...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    Hey everyone, I've got an RG 760 and a RG 550. Both feel great and play amazing. The issue is the tone. I've swapped the original Dimarzio's because I've always felt that the factory pickups are just "ok" and not the best you could use. I prefer to play the RG's more than all the guitars I...
  17. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey everyone, I just got a new Ibanez Genisis RG550 and also picked up some Gravity Storm pickups. I kept the original middle pick and wired the guitar this way. Gravity Storm pickups: black + white wires taped together, red to correct positions on the switch. Left the middle pickup wired as it...

    Just passing this on, and can't see a reference here. In 2017 I took my JEM555BK to a local guitar tech Neal Ad****s who'd just retired from 20 years touring with Iron maiden mostly, but who had also worked for Elton John, Queen, and others. When I got my guitar back from him it sounded and...

    SOUND: The EXchanger has one primary focus: Due to a pickup's behavior you are able to dial into an ideal or different sound better. To make this obvious, the sound coming from a single-coil pickup is different from a P90, which is different from a modern high-gain/output pickup, etc. And...
  20. Pickups & wiring
    Hi all, First-time poster here. I just bought a PF200 -- my first old Ibanez. Have only played it about an hour and I'm really digging it. But the neck pickup is much louder than the bridge pickup. Do you know if that's normal? I'm wondering if it at least one pickup has been replaced. I...
