  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I've been searching for months but for some reason I can't seem to figure out what would be a good replacement for volume/tone pots. I'm getting into doing some soldering and on one my used guitars the previous owner had done a number on pickup replacements with the amount of solder used, which...

    Hey, I'm quite a newbie in this topic and I need help with nailing a tone. What pedals would I need to acquire this tone? (guitar enters at ~0:12) Thanks! (my apologies if there's an already existing thread for tone questions)

    Or something equally annoying. Now the guy was a d-bag... aside from that though it hurt because I think he's right.... I switch between an American Deluxe Strat with noiseless pups and the Jem Jr. I run it through a Carvin V3M and a Tech21 Flyrig RK5. In my band we will play smooth jazz, to...

    Ok, So I have an RG370dx and I am Having an issue with the tone pot or wiring. I have everything wired as shown on the seymour duncan website under "guitar wiring 102", with a five way switch added of course.

    I'm about to purchase a Suhr Modern Satin: http://www.suhr.com/modern-satin-ms-ns-f-hh.html I'm leaning toward the one with the locking trem, which is the Original Floyd Rose. I know there's already other threads on this topic, but I wanted to see what you guys thought about the effect on tone...

    Both the volume and tone pots on my RG652 sound like they're scraping when I turn them. They sound fine plugged in, there's no added noise that I can hear. It's just when I turn them I hear it (unplugged). Anyone else have this problem or have an idea what it is? I'd rather not replace...

    Hi Looking for assistance in tracking down a set of Ibanez red Volume, tone & a switch tip for my RG770DX RR that I am restoring to its fullest potential. Thing is I have ordered a couple of sets on non genuine Ibanez which when they have arrived just do not look right. Have had a look around...

    Hey everyone, I just picked myself up my first Ibanez guitar and woah if you haven't had a chance to play the prestige 655 yet well i it really is so easy to play and incredibly resonant. However i was hoping somone could help show me the ropes when it comes to getting some sick tones from...

    I have made a pedalboard out of hardwood that works but is heavy and wire management is a bit of a pain. I have a custom made power source, Crybaby wah, Ibanez TS808, MXR Phase 90, Delta Lab Chorus, MXR DynaComp, MXR Carbon Copy and a Modtone tuner. I toyed with the idea of a Kemper, or an...
  11. Pickups & wiring
    Hey all, I am in need of some guidance on pickups. I did a search of the forums and I think I have confused myself even more, lol. I have an Ibanez RG3EXKA1 and I swapped out the pickups with a Dimarzio Tone Zone and PAF Pro from my Ibanez USRG30; the issue was that the pickups were direct...

    Now I'm gonna be straight up - I want to challenge you good folks entirely for my own benefit. I achieved a tone with podfarm2 that I really like when I recorded this track My issue is, I have failed to achieve such a tone with my Legacy III. It seems the legacy doesn't have the clarity, to...

    Impressed with the Wampler Pinnacle I was nearly going to throw this into my last post crapping on about strings, however I really want to share a positive experience too. I have been chasing that EVH brown tone for ages, and can't believe how cool this Wampler Pinnacle Pedal is. The tone on...

    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...

    Hey guys, I maybe relocating to Hong Kong for work. Right now I have a nice setup with an amp I simply adore. However, when I relocate I know my living space will be cut dramatically. May not have the room for my normal setup so I am thinking of going digital with plugins and what not. I'm new...

    So I've been playing through a JVM205h head for awhile now but I feel that the tone on the red and orange Overdrive channel isn't enough for when I'm soloing. I play neoclassical metal, traditional metwl and sometimes thrash so I want something that could boost my solo tone. I was thinking...

    Hey, Guys. So, I'm torn here. I know I'll never get to sound exactly like my heroes but thanks to technology these days. You can at least get close to them. Right now, my two favorite players are George Lynch and Richie Kotzen. I would love to start acquiring some pedals that well help me...

    Hi everyone, I need some advice, insight, personal experience stories, etc. First off I have two "main" guitars I am using right now. The trusty Jem 7VWH and a 2013 J Custom (6 string). I have tried and tried and tried to like how the J Custom sounds, and though compared to most guitars it...
