  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, i have a 90's Japanese RG550 with the Quantum humbuckers(out of some S series from the same era, they are ceramic) instead of the V7/V8 that came originally. My electronics have very bad connections and are scratchy when using the volume/tone knobs, and switching pickup positions. I want to...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    I have a RG570 that I am upgrading and wanting to make into a JEM style guitar (sort of). In terms of the pickups I want to somewhat mirror Steve Vai's EVO, except I want some additional options. I also want to use the Evo2, over the original Evo. I want to have.. Neck - Evo2 reversed (non F...

    Hi All, I have a 2005 Artcore AS83 which has the ACH-1 and ACH-2 pickups in it. I admit that I thought they sounded a bit harsh at first, but then I realized how good they sound (IMO) for playing classic rock... so I have decided I like them. I still keep toying with the idea of doing a coil...

    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...
  6. Pickups & wiring
    I installed PAF, Fred, 3-way inline toggle, one volume, two mini-toggles (to coil tap each pickup). See my illustration attached. It sounds great when I use either full humbucker alone. It sounds great when I use either full humbucker and with the other humbucker tapped to single. It sounds...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    Hi I need help with wiring my HSS strat. It has a standard (fender) 5-way switch and my question is can it be wired like this: position 1: just the humbucker - series position 2: just the humbucker - parallel or just one coil of the humbucker position 3: just the middle pickup position 4...

    Okay. I have a 2000 rg 570 and the volume and tone pots are worn out. The volume knob gets in the way of picking, also. So I'm thinking about wiring it with a single volume knob, and have a mini switch splitting the neck only, to keep it simple. Anyone who knows more about this topic...
