  1. Pickups & wiring
    anybody try these out? they seem really really cool. It's a P-90 and a Cool Rails pickup slammed together. You can run both coils together for a humbucker, or split either coil for a strat tone or a P-90 tone. read about it here...

    There is a thing I've been wondering about for a little while. What guitars did Steve Vai use at the different tracks on Passion & Warfare? I have the tab book which gives a lot of info, but not exactly what equipment used on every track. Did he exclusively use jems and UVs? Would be very...

    New to the site and I need some direction. When I was younger, I lived with my parents and I had a job at a local Guitar Center. I bought and sold a lot of gear. I went through a vwh back when they had ebony boards, had a mystic jpm6, prestige 1570, and I finally settled in on a EB JPM6 Lava...

    Hello there... I'm new to the forum, and got my first Ibanez today after being a Jackson and Fender user for years. I was forced to return my fairly new Jackson DK2M because there was a problem with the tremolo system I couldn't fix, and since DK2M's are out of stock in the UK I decided to buy...

    In my band I stick out like a sore thumb. Singer: a Salmon Pink Fender Jaguar. Bassist: a Tobbaco burst Fender P-bass. Me: A Grape Ice RG560 I know that my guitar is awesome, I love it, but i still feel like I don't fit in with them. We just play rock like the Foo Fighters and I don't ever...

    I found a used american made strat with rosewood fingerboard. It has the more modern blocky bridge saddles though. Based on the serial number, it appears to be an early to mid nineties manufacture date. The strat is up for sale for $625, and I've been wanting an american made strat but am...

    Hey all, this is my 2nd attempt at posting as my first went into the bit bucket somewhere. I have a 1984 Ibanez Roadstar III RS440 model. It's Deep Purple in color. I've had it about 7 or 8 years now and haven't really played it because the pickups were noisy and scratchy and all around not...
  11. Pickups & wiring
    Why do they have to make so many great pickups? Anyone else find they want another guitar, not so much for the guitar but to put another set of Dimarzios in it. I have a G&L with Dimarzio stacked Singles, a Jem w/Evos, and a RG with Breed/Paf Joe combo and I want more. I want a D-Sonic/Air...

    I have a Surf green (MIM) 1999 '57 Stratocaster. I love the feel, and the maple 'v' neck, and the tone is good...but the stock pickups make that "noise". I would like a good replacement set (all 3) for this guitar that keep the Strat-Fender tone but have more flexibility toward humbucker-like...
  14. Pickups & wiring
    I have an american standard strat with a tonezone S at the bridge. Since I play in two/three different projects (dance/funk commercial music with classic strat tones needed, hard rock band and classic rock trio with more dinamics in the songs) I wanted to "boost" the signal of my main axe by...
  15. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys I have a Warmoth Alder hardtail strat with a Carvin Maple neck with ebony fretboard. I'm going to be using HSS or HH pickup configuration. Can you guys give me some suggestions on bridge pickups? Originally I was thinking Duncan JB but I don't want something so brittle sounding. I...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    guys, Is there any difference between the two coils in the Paf Pro and Fred? I'm coil splitting them with the middle Ibanez S1 single-coil. Is there also a right direction to mount them?

    Because they're just so pimp daddy-o!! ;) lol And don't go making fun of the paint job on my walls neither 'cause it's not finished yet! Sheesh! :rolleyes: Well... you all asked for it, (well, really only gpenguins asked for it), so you got it! Post all your pics of your Roadstars and show...
  18. Pickups & wiring
    Okay, so I have a Warmoth custom body here, and I need help deciding which pickups to use. First off, I'm using an H-S-H top-routed body, and so far I've decided on a Humbucker from Hell in the neck slot and a Class of '55 in the middle slot. In the bridge slot, though, I'm totally in the air...

    okay ive decided im officially saving for a really nice HSS strat (on a student budget :P ) can anyone tell me what the differences between a Fender American series and American Deluxe series strat are? I'm not really interested in the aesthetic differences, just how they differ in tone and...
