    Let me start by saying I am definitely an "EMG Guy", but I have a guitar that won't fit EMG's, and besides, I want to have one that's different so that I can get some different kind of tones happening. And besides, this guitar almost seems like it's screaming for a set of Dimarzios. I've pored...

    Hello, I'd like to replace the Edge Pro trem system on my RG1570 built at FujiGen Gakki on May 2006. It's a J-Craft US stock model, bought in San Diego. Is it possible to replace it with a more modern Edge system or put in a Floyd Rose on that guitar? What options do I have? Cheers, Ove

    As I indicated in the other thread about identifying the tremolo on this, I pulled the trigger on my first RG! This is a serious step up from my 15 years of only playing an Epi Les Paul as an electric (play foremost acoustic jazz stuff)... anyways, as it is older it has lots of little issues...

    Hi everyone! I am new here and very eager to join the club! I am pretty much a one-guitar kinda guy and have been playing the same pimped out Epi Les Paul for going on 15 years. The frets are pretty much gone and I decided to move on to greener pastures, specifically a japanese built RG. I've...

    I recently purchased both a Japanese RG1570 from 2002 (Yes, the serial number on the neck says 2002) and a Korean RG420FA from 1998. After years of playing diverse strats, finally playing RGs is a blast. In my subjective opinion, both sound great, feel fast have a good clear sound. The 1570...
  6. Pickups & wiring
    I want to swap my pickups for some Dimarzios, but from what I understood from threads on the internet, it seems the RG1570 's cavities are too shallow for them (the stock pups are smaller in width too if I measured correctly). Has anyone ever encountered this issue with other RG's? What could I...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    Hello everyone. I bought a Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz set for my RG1570 but I'm having a hard time figuring out the wiring scheme because the wire colors in the stock and SD pickups don't match. The stock pickups are connected with 2 different wires to the switch. In the SD pup though, I have more...

    I'm considering picking up a used (but very good condition) RG1570. How much is one of these worth in the UK, assuming it is close to mint condition? The used market (ebay etc.) fluctuates a lot, so I don't want to pay over the odds just because no one is currently selling at a reasonable...

    Hello! Just a brief introduction, my name is Sean and I'm from Halifax, Canada. I currently own two Ibanez guitars - an RG1570 and a JS1200 and have been playing Ibanez for about 12 years. I play in an Iron Maiden tribute band as well as an original act with the same members. Good times all round!
  15. Pickups & wiring
    Hi not been on here for a while but I'm upgrading my trusty Ibanez RG1570 with a Jb trembucker. Wiring is slightly different and whilst I appreciate there are loads of topics I can't find the answer to what I need. My question is do I follow the Seymour Duncan wiring diagram or do I use the...
