routing

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello! Noob here I'm wanting to get either a SIX6FDFM-PCB or an S61AL-DML and have it routed to fit a lo-pro edge in it. Both are Iron Labels and neither have trem cavities. I guess my main concern is if S bodies with trems are made slightly thicker to accommodate trems than S bodies without...

    Surely this is a question/discussion somewhere on this site... does anyone have experience using a template set like the one in the attached photo? I'm interested in building some custom guitars but am not quite clear on how to use some of the templates included for a JEM. Specifically, how do...

    This is my first attempt to routing. It all started when I discovered that the stratty clean quack sound is in position 2 when you split the neck pickup with the coil towards the neck along with the middle pickup. This is not the way the Jem/RG split 5 is originally, and I've always wondered why...

    Hey guys. I'm wondering if the Low Pro Edge Trem would drop into a Floyd Route? I mean I'm wondering if I could buy one for a guitar that has a floyd copy and drop it in by replacing the posts, etc, and not have to re drill anything? I don't mind taking out the old posts, but don't want to have...

    Recently got a 1994 Washburn USA MG-100 w/ HSS configuration. Had a Tone Zone in the bridge. Went to replace it with a Norton, and the dang thing won't fit. I was in disbelief (and a couple beers) and was not gonna NOT get the thing in after I'd already removed the TZ and soldered the Norton...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    I've been having trouble with my Japanese RG1527. I don't like the stock Ibanez pickups. I wanted to have some Seymour Duncan Blackouts installed. As I am not confident with wiring, I took it to a local guitar shop. After taking my guitar apart, the luthier let me know that the Blackouts...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    I'm looking into taking components out of an rg1550 guitar and transplanting them into a jem body, but I noticed there is routing under the pickguard of the RG for the volume and tone pots, and none for the jem. Will these pots work or is there some special pots needed to pull it off? I though...

    I have a '93 S540 that I would like to turn into an RG by purchasing a body, but a lot of the bodies for sale are routed out for the Edge III bridge. Does anyone know if I can physically fit my original Ibanez Floyd Rose licensed bridge into the space? I'm not too worried about access space or...

  11. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I came across a few with a similar problem, but read no definite solution. I have a S series guitar and the hyper complicated wiring is basically done. The only problem remains that the switch is too short, making the lever hardly stick out of the cavity (I can't even put the tip on or else...

    Would I have to do any sort of routing to fit EMG's/SD Blackouts into a 1570?

    Available as a separate thread - perhaps it will get more attention than that HUGE "show off your guitar". I also thought it should be separate because it's a question thread, rather than showing off my yet-unmodded guitar... for the piece of crap that I sometimes feel it is. Anyways: I've...
  14. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I'm looking for a router and I've heard many people talk about dremel. I've been to there website looking at their products. I'm looking for one that can do fine detail routing like on a fretboard. Preferably cordless and one that could fit into some sort of base that could control the depth...

    Hey bought an Ibanez Prestige 1570. I am trying to put new Dimebuckers in the bridge position, but they sit too high. I want to route it deeper, but there is a metal plate underneath it. Is it a good idea to remove the metal plate? Signed, getting ready to shred hard
  16. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Well, I wanted to try my hand at routing a body for a OFR. I thought I would share what to do and NOT to do with everyone. I bought this guitar for $80 of the bay. The guy said it was an alder body, can anyone say for sure? I bought the templates from StewMac. The directions come with the...
