    Hi, I'm wondering if someone have and experience with this two single coils pickups, mainly in 2 and 4 position of the 5-way switch (mixed with the humbucker in coil splited mode). Which should be better to get this strati "quack" sound? From what I've read here DiMarzio IBZ pickups |...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, I have an old IBZ USA C1 vertical humbucker. Recently I got a Squier strat guitar to play luthier and mess with it. I like the neck, I did a proper setup and after getting used to the smaller frets it is nice to play despite the low price tag. The original electronics are extreme crap and...

    Just scored a JEM for a GREAT price from a pawn shop I walked into. Guy didn't know what he had at all- thought it was just an Ibanez RG and had it priced as such. Good stuff- I've always wanted one for my collection because they look awesome. Never been a huge fan of Steve's tone (don't flame...

    Hello everyone, It's been a long time since I have posted on these forums, so what better way to dust off the old account by posting a thread? Anyways, I recently acquired an Ibanez RT140 second hand and decided that I needed to change out the pickups. I decided to go one at a time since it...

    Hi guys, A dude in my area is selling his 'Ibanez Jem Jr', possibly 'custom' (idk if he added that himself since he painted the front or if its actually part of the model name. He says it's made in Indonesia, but around here (outside the US) there's a ton of misinformation on the part of the...

    I'd like to have the middle single coil on my 7VWH closer to the strings, because I love that single coil tone, but I feel that these two central magnets begin to "catch" G and D strings... maybe they are too high? Is it possible to lower them?

    I've read that in an S-S-S configuration, the bridge and neck single coils are the same, but the center pickup is counter-wound. If installing in an H-S guitar... Do you use a counter wound single coil or standard wound?

    Ok, I'm stumped. Has anyone out there dealt with this before? I have two MIJ RG 560's, '88 and '90, that need the direct mount to body single coil screws. Rich @ Ibanezrules says they are "unavailable." Has anyone solved this matter short of just using modern pickups and drilling new holes...

    Okay I've been playing around with the 5-way switches on all of my Ibbys lately and something I never thought about (but is one of the reasons I like ibanez so it's really weird): What are the qualities that make a good middle single coil pickup? Should middle singles be lower output than the...

    I owned a PRS SE Bernie and loved that guitar. Sold it as I was really after an SC58 and they're above my skills budget (I try to keep it at a sane skill/$$$ ratio) and ended up with an early 2000's LP instead. I bought an inexpensive used semi-hollow from GC online and returned it on Saturday...

    Is the fsk101 a true humbucker pickup with the sustainer or is it a single coil sustainer with a dummy coil attached? I know it doesn't have the intensity pot, but if it is a single coil driver with a dummy coil, can it be cut? To fit a neck pickup next to the driver.

    Hi, I'm trying to find dark sounding single coils for my guitar -- not a stack/bucker in single size nor an overwound single (such as the Lace Sensor Blue), but a real single coil, same power as a single coil, but dark sounding. Does such a thing exist? Guitar is a SSS Fender Japan, alder...

    I've been searching for a "better" Stratocaster bridge pickup to warm up the tone and reduce noise. The Virtual Solo model seemed to be the best option from DiMarzio. It does an okay job reducing noise, but isn't as quiet as rail pickups. Also, it's not really warmer than the stock Fender...
