    Hey guys, I have been bothered by a sitar like rattling noise when playing the open high B and sometimes G string. Shimming the nut and replacing strings didn´t help at all and there seems to be plenty of space between the strings and frets. Looking at the nut, I have noticed some worn in...

    I play about 3 hours a day I have had my 2013 rg since the beginning of the year and I am starting to notice wear on my frets, this is understandable when I take into account the hours I have put on it and my constant soloing and bending. I don't like the sound of this level and crown stuff, I...

    Hey guys, While restringing my guitar I just realized that some of my frets are not in their best shape ever. They seem to be a bit worn out! See the pictures in the link below. Do you reckon they are bad enough to be changed ? I can still play and I can't hear any noticeable problem with buzz...

    Hi guys, I'm trying to replace PU of my RG350DX with DiMarzio Series. I desoldered the old INF Series, take care of draw down the diagram. Reading the instruction I know that Red is the hot, Green/Bare is the ground, Black/White wires together and soldered to nowhere. BRIDGE: - Super...

    Hi guys, I am new to this site and did some searching, but couldn't find anything about this specific question, sorry if I am treading on old ground here. I need some expert advice. I have a Jem 555 that I love playing. It has a great neck and I love the hot pickups. The only thing I don't...

    Hello, My problem is my Jem. It has allways had a low output level and I thought, because it's a high-end instrument, that everything is as it should be. It even went to see an technician once, and it came back with the same output level. Distorted sounds are ok, but clean levels are really...

    Hi people! I have a question for you. It's time to refret my neck from S540 1998. It will be scalloped also. May be. But it's not quick, and I want to replace my old neck with a new one from newest model for some time. Can the neck from S5470 be installed to S540? Does anybody know...

    Hey guys! (first post! ;) So I'm thinking of doing a few mods to my RG2550Z, one of them being to replace the Edge-ZERO with an Original Edge, (along with some 2LE2B Lo Pro/Edge Studs to replace those crap stock studs). So my question is whether an Original Edge will directly replace the...

    I really want a drop in arm with adjustable tension on my S670. The new ZRII trems have the exact design I'm looking for. Could I buy the ZRII assembly and fit it in my trem? If so, where in the UK can I get these parts from? What parts do I even need to buy? :s
  13. Pickups & wiring
    After finding that I can't fit a sustain system in my S670 without serious routing, which I don't fancy, I figured a change of pickups may give me that extra bit of sustain I'm looking for. I'm aware a compressor will also do this, but I want to change the pickups in this thing anyway coz I find...
  14. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, the circuit board in my Yamaha TRB5 died and i replaced it with a good EMG one with the same pots, however, since then the bass sounds very thin. It sounds quite middle-boosted rather than the bottom end i had before and im not sure if it is because of the pre-amp or just yamaha picks with...
