    I usually keep my forum adventures exclusive of eachother, but I'm looking for as much feedback as possible on this. So here it is: I scored myself an RGA121 with a natural finish from guitar center the other day for 450 bucks. I had been playing this guitar on and off for like 2-3 years but...

    I picked up a RG420 for a winter project, it will need new pickups. I have always use the Super Distortion/PAF Pro combo. I was thinking about trying the SD JB/59 combo. I don't know how this would sound best in the basswood body. I am looking for Warren DeMartini's sound. Warren's guitars had...

    Hi all, I'm getting sick of my JB Jr in the middle position (between TZ and PafPro) of my 570EX. It is "weaker" in volume, and not as defined as I would like it to be. Would like to know ANY opinions on a humbucking Dimarzio strat sized pickup. I'm currently looking for opinions specifically...

    I picked up a used and MINT RG3120TW off "that" site a few weeks back and OMG it is sweet. The neck, action, tone, and sustain is off the charts. I like it so much I am selling my RGT220A to Gear GAS. I think Jemsite contributes to G.A.S. ;) Here are a few pics

    I had a guy repair my guitar a while back. He claimed the pickups were all wired funny and that he re-wired them to what he claimed was "normal". Well now my guitar sounds like absolute crap. He owns a guitar repair shop but there is no way in hell I'm going back to him. I am good with...

    Just got a 1570 and have been a long time user of strats, Les Pauls, etc. I used to dismiss these guitars somewhat, but now I can see why Gilbert, Vai, and Satch make these their weapon of choice. I have read where people have had quality issues on the newer prestige RGs. Mine is an '07 and I...

    I know there are a couple of RG550 20th threads already running but they are huge so I thought I would start one to discuss the pickups specifically. I am interested in peoples opinions of the stock pups. I got my DY and RFR on Sunday, after playing around for a couple of days I decided the...

    Hello, Planning on swapping out the stock pickups in an Ibanez S470 (thin-body mahogany w/trem). I've narrowed down the selection to one of two Dimarzio combos (bridge/neck): Either ToneZone/AirNorton or Breed/Breed. Help me out guys, anybody try these combos or have experiences to share...
