  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, i have a 90's Japanese RG550 with the Quantum humbuckers(out of some S series from the same era, they are ceramic) instead of the V7/V8 that came originally. My electronics have very bad connections and are scratchy when using the volume/tone knobs, and switching pickup positions. I want to...
  2. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    This guitar is local to me, and owner states it is an S540 from 1998. The serial number is F9800572 so it is indeed from 1998, but I'd like to know exactly which S540 model it is. I plan to buy it regardless, unless it's a dog when I get there, but want to know all I can about the guitar...
  3. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    GC has a steal on the Evolution set, $165, and I just got a Jem Jr, and although the stock Quantum pups are OK, they don't have the depth that I'd like for recording...I think the difference in bodies is Mahogany in the Jr and Basswood in the Jem. I've found one review and the guy said they...

The Triple shot switching rings are about the coolest guitar accessory ever. You can have a humbucker wired in series (standard), a humbucker wired in parallel, the...
  6. Pickups & wiring
    Okay, a friend of mine had this guitar branded "Quantum". Never heard of them before but the one review on the one item I could find made by them (an Amp) was beyond good. It has a single Hum configuration like an EVH frankenstrat. I took the pickup out (resembles a covered EMG but is passive)...

    The QM pickups in my S540 always impress me, each time. Something about them is just pure magic. No clue what it is. I have Dimarzios , Duncans from the early 90ties, PRS pickups, etc., but the QMs in the 540er are just a great versatile set. Great. But: there's barely any info out there...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    I'm wondering if anyone knows what would be the closest sounding dimarzio equivalents to v1/v2 and qm1/qm2 ibanez stock pickups? :?:

    Yeah, you heard it. They've decided to use quantum technology to make an overdrive pedal. I know a bit about quantum mechanics (a very limited amount) and can't see what would make this so special. http://www.acousticimaginearing.com/ <-- sound clips on here To me, it sounds like any ordinary...
