    Does anyone have any information on "Vintage" pickup used on the 1987 RG410/420/440 I've got a 1987 RG440. I like the bridge pickup, but I have been unable to find any information on it. It is simply labelled "Vintage" in metallic lettering. From what I can tell this was only used on the RG410...

    I've personally never seen an RG440 with no pickguard... This guitar is supposedly an "80's RG440". I would guess an '87 with that headstock on a Roadstar body, or maybe a pieced together guitar. Anyone ever seen an RG440 with no pickguard?

    I have another thread running but I have narrowed down the options to these two and wanted a thread with a title to reflect this, in case it interested anybody new. So.... I have an RS530. It's pretty beat up and I love the old thing. I recently realised that it's the neck..... nothing else...

    I have redone an old RG440 I bought new in 1988. I bought two new 500K pots and a Dimarzio 5 way switch (EP1112). It has 1 humbucker at the bridge, a middle and a neck single coil, FR Ibby Edge Trem. My biggest issue is rewiring everything with the new pots and switch. I can't find a diagram...

    Im thinking of selling my 1986 Ibanez Roadstar II RS Rg 440. Its in the powder blue colour, but as its ageing its starting to go a bit seafoam green around the edges. The guitar has had a fret dress a while ago and the frets are not jumbo now by any means. Pickups are original, theres a couple...

    I've posted a couple of times on here lately about my 1986-7 Roadstar II RG440 model (it's the red one with black pickguard). I've been debating whether to upgrade or sell this guitar (or just leave it as-is and play it), but I'm now leaning toward trading. What I'm really wanting is a Strat...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    Pardon the dumb question, but I've got an old RG 440 that I'm thinking about upgrading the pickups on. The guitar has a H-S-S configuration, which will hopefully show up in the photo below. Here's the dumb question: The two single-coils are mounted in kind of a slanted way. Will any...

    I've got an old RG 440 that I'm thinking fixing up a little. It has all the original pickups in it: humbucker in the bridge, single coils in middle and neck as show in the picture below. I think I'd like to go with a typical strat-style 3 single coil configuration. Can I do that? If so, what...
