    I'm probably kicking a dead horse here, but after a forum search I couldn't find this exact mod, so I may as well share it for anyone who wants to try it. A little over a year ago I picked up a pristine Prestige 1570, pristine apart from the fact that the previous owner had his replacement...

    Considering getting myself an S series for the first time (always been an RG player). Just a few questions to you Ibanez veterans who have or have owned one. Does the neck drop when playing standing (like a gibson SG) due to the light body? Also does that input jack on the front of the body...
  10. Comments to Ibanez
    Just wanted to say WELL DONE IBANEZ. You have officially made the most gorgeous guitar i have ever owned, perfect setup out of the factory. For a £600 guitar i could not find something brand new that is better for me. Thanks again Ibanez for being the best.

    Hi there, I'm pretty to all this stuff and was wondering which configurations my completely stock RG870z H/S/H is using in position 2 and 4. I suspect it's splitting the humbucker and putting it in series with the single but I'm unsure. I don't have enough tonal experience to determine if...

    I'm looking to improve my pickup wiring options so I need to know if it's possible to take my HSH setup from my RG570 one step above. My pickups are a Seymour Duncan 59 (neck) IBZ/USA (middle) and SD TB-11 Custom Custom (bridge) plus push-pull volume for coil tap (HSH <---> SSS). So what I want...

    The *NEW* EMG X Series Pickups are here, great tone, here's a bit more from EMG about them: "These pickups have an exceptional organic nature to their overall sound due to a newly designed internal pre-amp, which allows for more gain to come from your amp and instrument, rather than from the...

    I was looking at the Artist Prestige AR300RE and the AR5000RE and the two switches for making the humbuckers Series/Parallel/Split seems an intriguing idea. But looking at the Ibanez Parts Catalog last night, I couldn't find the switches for sale by themselves. And Stew Mac didn't seem to have...

    Here's a wiring diagram I used to wire up a dual HB guitar with push/pull pots on the tone controls to allow series/parallel wiring. I want to add another switch to put the neck pickup in and out of phase. Will my handwritten modifications to the diagram achieve this? [See below for diagram]
