    what's your opinion on it, and is there any difference between the RR3 and the RR1 other than neck-thru, ebony fretboard and made in the USA?

    I just want to replace the tone and volume pots on my old old RG550. But when I made a search I found 2 sizes: dime and quarter. What size should I guess? Any suggestion would be appreciate!! BTW the body is in green with maple neck, blue EVO bridge and pink PAF pro neck. What color of pickguard...

    I would like to get a used one of these and do some custom work to it. How does the guitar sound and play? Does it sound darker than a basswood RG?

    I am about to begin my first fret job. I pulled the old ones out and they were either not glued, or the glue didn't hold at all because the removal was quite easy. So my question is... to glue or not to glue? What is the difference (other than gluing being a pain in the butt)? I will be...

    I am wondering where on the pickups (humbuckers and middle single coil) you can find some numbers or something to identify the pickups. I want to make sure my pickups where stock and I am skeptical about the middle pickup. There are no numbers on the back of it, is it possible to identify it at all?

    As most of you know I've been looking for a Ibanez RG770DX. Well I haven't found one but I came across an excellent condition '92 770 at music go round outside of Pittsburgh. Called the guy today who sent me some pics and he said it was put on the floor last night. I couldn't pass it up great...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    I've had an X2N in my trustworthy maple-boarded RG550 for quite some time now, but I've never been too fond of it. Way too shrill and icepicky. I've finally decided to look for something else, and I've narrowed it down to three options: 1) PAF Pro 2) Air Zone 3) Tone Zone I had an old RG770...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, looking for some thoughts and advice on new pickups for my mid-90s LP Classic. :) Stock pickups are Gibson 496R (neck) and 500T (bridge) I think. When purchasing the dealer fitted nickel covers for me. I used to be in a classic rock covers band and found my tone to be a little...

    I've been trying to make this for the longest time. I bought this about eight months ago. The original had a nasty crack so I had to replace the guitar. Since then, I haven't had time to work with school, work, and uncooperative weather. I finally had time. I only have to do some touch up and...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, I'm trying to decide which pickups get to finish my guitar project, a RG2570 customized (basswood body, maple neck annd ebony fingerboard), my playing style is progressive metal (like Dream Theater, Symphony X, Evergrey...) and I was wondering if a set of Breeds will work for sweep picking...
  11. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I dropped a Jem set I got in a lucky buy into an RG that I actually own. I am pretty sure the set came from a JEM777VBK. I posted about them in a thread elswhere. Anyhow. I believe this is the Paf Pro set and the middle single coil is way weaker than my S1 that was in there prior. The...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    Hi folks, This is my first post here, and the 59 model is my first Duncan pickup (used DiMarzios in the past) I'm really glad that i discovered the 59 model. Since i went to 10-46 (from 009s) i never was happy about my tone with the DiMarzio Breeds (too buzzy and hard, but dull, without...

    I like personalizing my guitar, what mods or ideas do you guys have for me? This is probably the most inventive guitar community I've seen, I can't wait to see what you've got. I'm already looking into changing the pickups, so stuff besides that. The guitar in question:
  14. Pickups & wiring
    Because of pickups I have currently available to me without having to buy anything else, I was just wondering what you guys thought of using an Evolution neck pickup in the bridge spot with a PAF Pro in the neck position. This will be going into an alder body guitar with a wrap around type...
  15. Pickups & wiring
    Hi there.. I Have an Ibanez RG 550 series, and this is my first time to change the pickups from the original ones.. After reading the dimarzio comparision charts I finally decided for a Tone Zone at Bridge Position and Evolution at Neck.. will be a good match?? About the middle pickup which...

    This pup really turned out to be a hidden jem for me reminds me a lot of the bridge pup in the EBMM EVH guitars dimarzio claims the tone zone is the closest but this norton is way closer it is like a fred in that it feels lower output but has more of the punch and balls of the tone zone with...

    I'm letting my '87 RG550 w/ Rosewood board go. It's gonna be hard to see it go, but I need the money. I've upgraded the pickups to a Duncan Custom Bridge, PAP Pro neck, and HS-2 middle pickup. Great condition, the frets look amazing for the age, tip top shape. The body has some dings from...
