    Guys im new in dis community!! I wanted to ask....if the strings are too close to the fret board or the PUP does it effect how well ur pinch harmonics give out!! Or make it harder to give a screaming pinch harmonic??????

    My name is John and I am considering purchasing a new electric. I've always loved Ibanez...the necks, the look, etc. Actually, I just recently sold a MIJ RG440 Roadstar II that I had since 1986...it had one of the best necks I had ever felt...no paint/lacquer, rosewood fretboard w/micro-dot...

    So I just puchased a brand new Evo bridge from ****, and I need to find the perfect matching humbucker for my neck position. I'll be installing them into my RGT42DX. Neck-through, mahogany body. To be honest i only really use my neck position to get better articulation. I especially like to use...

    Well, I just picked up Paul Gilbert's new album and I really like it. I actually sat in my car when I got home until I made it through the entire album. Nice to have an entirely instrumental album from Paul. I have always been impressed by his fret board prowess and it is fun to see him...

    I'll be in the market soon for a new guitar but not sure what to go for.I've got it done to either an N4,Esp Skulls and Snakes/Kami or a Floral Jem. I've plenty of experience with Jems but none with the others and as there aren't any dealers anywhere near me I'd like to know how they compare to...

  14. Pickups & wiring
    So i got the pickups and installed them on my rg550. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The breed neck is probably the best neck pickup ever made. Every note can be heard clearly, and it has such a sweet tone. Not too dark and very smooth. The evo2 isnt a good match for a breed neck, i have to say. When i...

    I know many like these in the neck but anyone like the pro in the bridge spot of a RG? I was told that they are great for a very tight,balanced, lower output paf tone and have great pinch harmonics? i like the tone of "satch boogie" and that is all pros on there remind me of the "hot for...

    hey all, i'm new here and have a question about pick-up choices for lower tunings.. I just received my Ibanez RG470xl, strung it with .14-.70's and tuned it A-A. It sounds massive, but i think i'm going to look for a slightly clearer bridge pickup, with more low end response. i'm down to these...
  17. Pickups & wiring
    When you say a Pickup is compressed, what does that mean. I commonly hear the Evo and X2N are compressed and some others. Does this mean more open, less open? More gain, tighter, brighter, sustain longer, cover up bad playing?

    Good Pickup for Metal? I need some help finding a good bridge pickup for my Ibanez, I need something that has a high output, but isnt muddy. I tune 1 1/2 steps down. I was thanking about a Seymour Duncan Invader. does anyone know anything about this pickup.

    I've got a year old 7VWH and there are so many little details that need to be worked out... one of my concerns is the neck pickup is dead... zero harmonics and almost no bite which is totally the opposite of their description, the pinched and tapped harmonics also aren't very strong could this...

    Greetings, all! I'm new to the forum here and to Ibanez in general, as I just bought an early RG550. Very cool and I'm looking forward to further exploring the Ibanez line. Right now I'm very interested in JEMs and the JPM models. However, I'm having trouble finding information on the JPMs...
