  1. Pickups & wiring
    After driving half the board and my local DiMarzio dealer crazy over the past couple of months, I've finally found the middle single coil I've been searching for! I finally worked my way around to the True Velvet and it seems to be my perfect fit in the HSH config. In the Evo2/Air Norton setup...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Hello Guys Just bought myself an Ibanez S970W - feels great to play, wonderful neck, great action. The only thing I am not too impressed with are the CAP pickups that come with it. I am thinking of replacing the CAP pickups with Air Norton (N) , True Velvet (M) and Tone Zone (B). Now these...
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods

  7. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Three have just gone up on Ikebe: http://www.ikebe-gakki.com/search_fair.php?fairId=48 - available in red, black or purple - looks the same as last year's RG8470Z but with a True Velvet instead of Blue Velvet middle pickup (couldn't tell you the difference as I always go for H-H setups) - not...
