    What is the difference between F-Spaced Pickups and regular? What kind will we need with our Floyd Rose, Edge, and ZR Tremolos?

    Black Super Distortion S with 12'' of lead - $45 shipped I also have a black YJM pickup. This pickup is pretty lacking in terms of wire, but since it is wire, it can be extended, of course. Since it's lacking in wire, I'll take $20 shipped for it. Please add 3% for paypal.

    Hi all, Anybody from Canada here having problems getting DiMarzio pickups? I ordered a DP188 Pro-Track for a replacement pickup on my strat from a local store. The guy checked with the distributor in Vancouver, they had some in stock. Was going to be 5 to 10 business days. Great! 3 weeks...

    hey guys, I have an RG321 body(hardtail) and a floating tremolo style neck on the same guitar. Does it really matter whether I get F-spaced or not? I'm looking at getting a white dimarzio tone zone, but no one seems to have f-spaced in stock, but everyone seems to have regular in stock. Thanks...

    Just wanted to know if the bridge and neck pups need to be f-spaced or just the bridge on a trem based guitar particularly this model?

    Looking to switch up my tones... Already have another RG w/ a Tone Zone/Air Norton combo (thanks rty13ibz98!!!) I have a F spaced black DiMarzio Tone Zone I'm looking to trade. Looking to trade for an F spaced pickup, preferrably black, but color isn't a HUGE issue... The pickup is in great...

    Why do you think this year's JS line still uses the Fred when Satch came out with the Mo Joe?

    So I have an RG1570 and I want new pickups. I have some picked out, but I don't know what will go good with it. What do you think would go good with a Super 2 at the neck? Or, a Steve's special in the bridge? An Evo at the neck? Any other suggestions? Oh yea, I play a lot of hard rock and...

    I have an Ibanez SA160 HSS with Dimarzio Tone Zone-Fender Lace Silver-Fender Lace Red pick ups. It's a great guitar.. but for some reason (maybe the dimarzio?) it's just not rendering unto me a very metal sound. I can get amazing pinch harmonics on any strings but the Low E and the A, and the...

    Last weekend I bought a very nice '88 Jem77FP from fellow Jemsiter Vurtox. Apart from one ugly ding below the tone knob, some buckle rash and a few further assorted scuffs it is in really nice condition. It was a 2,5-hour-drive from Amsterdam, but well worth it :) (I'll prove it with pics when I...

    I just installed a Paf Joe in the bridge and a Mo Joe in the neck of my RG 2550 prestige guitar. The guitar has a Edge Pro bridge and the poles of the bridge don't line up with the strings, especially the 6th 5th and 4th string. On the neck pickup its more lined up but still a bit off. The 6,5...

    I saw in the dimarzio catalog that all tremolo guitars should have F-spaced bridge pickups. How about the neck pickups? Do they need to be F-spaced too?

    As some of you may already know, the volume pot on my 3 month old RG1570MRB decided to seize up yesterday, and I don't feel like dealing with Ibanez to have them send me a new volume pot. So, I've decided to have a new pot installed as well as some new pickups. I'm planning on buying an Evo2 for...
