  2. Pickups & wiring
    Good afternoon. I just picked my first Ibanez RG after playing mostly fenders and gibsons. I absolutely love the guitar, but I was looking to reverse the neck pickup (V7) coil splitting. In position 2 I want the outside coil on the neck pickup in combination with the middle to get more "air"...

    Looking for opinions, and differences on these. Im ready to purchase a guitar, I have had an offer for an S540 and I also found an RG 1570 for the same exact price. I do like the S bodies, but the one I used to have sounded weak. I play metal, looking for best sound and thinnest, fastest...

    Hello, I was wondering, between 2 mirage blue 1570's, which pickup combination would be better. Firstly, it's a drop sonic in the neck, still the s-1 in the middle, and the tone zone in the bridge. Secondly, it's a PAF pro in the neck, sh-3 in the middle, and an evo in the bridge. Please let me...

    OK, sorry for the maybe misleading title but I couldnt explain it there. You know about the tremol-no kind of device that comes with the ZPS tremolos on the RG1570's. That thing that will make the floating bridge much more stiffer than it should to keep tuning better. Well, I didnt care until...

    Ok so I'm in the search of standard low action.. I've ruled everything out. The neck is dead straight to me and I'm getting some fret buzz on the bass side as high as 2.5mm. The trebble side is about 1.6mm and is fine without buzz. Can it be bad fret work and uneven frets? I'll be contacting...

    Hi Everyone, I have got an Ibanez RG 1570. I'm using this since years but I never liked the thin sound, that comes from the instrument. I swapped the original V7, V8 pickups to a fernandes sustainer (neck position) and a Seymour Duncan TB-4 (bridge position). The middle pickup is still an S1...

    I want to get back into playing after many years. My last guitar was a 1989 RG560 I bought new in 89. It seems like the closest thing available new is a 1570. I really liked the candy apple finish. Anyway as I have been out of playing for 10+ years I want to know how these models compare...

    Does anyone here have practice of using Mo'Joe through Line6 PODxt Live to get metal sound? I have success with it and i like the tone but when i compare my tone to another guitarist of our band i hear that i don't have enough gain (distortion). But if i distort too much to match the level it's...

    So, few weeks ago I posted here my dilemma between RG1570 and Charvel So Cal/San Dimas. I have decided to go with Ibanez. First of all, I would like to say that you guys are really lucky to have a guy like Rich and his shop. Fantastic service and communication. It took 2 weeks (give or take a...

    Hi guys. I've bought a new RG 1570 with Edge Pro. I've noticed that when i bend with tremolo open strings and fretted strgins the fretted one's decay too fast. Is this OK? I lowered the bridge pickup a little, this helped to get more sustain with open strings (harmonics). What about fretted...

    Hello. I am thinking of changing the pickups V7, V8 and S1 in my Ibanez RG 1570. I just wanted to ask whether it is necessary that the three pickups: neck, central and bridge are f-spaced or only is f-spaced in the bridge. Thank you all.
