    Hey guys! I have my eyes set on a 'Jackson DK2M Pro Series Dinky' (check link at the bottom) and I really want to make some improvements on it once I get it. Okay, so the guitar comes with Seymour Duncan pickups (TB4 and SH2N). I was thinking of replacing them with DiMarzio pups. I play for a...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Well i've recently acquired this alder H-H soloist that came stock with EMG 81 and 85 and they're really starting to get on my nerves. Always that little gain boost, the compression and subtle lack of note deffinition is so annoying. And cleans are just a joke on these things. So I guess what im...

    So i'm thinking of getting a 7 string, and i'd like the advice of the experts on here as to what models to look for and which ones to avoid. Basically, i'm looking for an Ibanez, NOT a Universe, as i want just a 2 humbucker pickup config, and i want it to have a locking trem. So, Which models...

    When I say near mint, it's a couple of swirls away from nos. Still has all plastic on the covers and unopened case candy. An honest 9.8 out of 10. It's montego black which is a pearl like black with bronze/gold glitter that matches the pickguard. If it was any other color, you would not see...

    I want to change the original EVO's. I am trying to get a very saturated, yet clear, gain tone that I can get George Lynch style tone with. Also some very high gain "death metal" type rhythm tone. Yeah yeah, wrong guitar etc..... I was thinking Screamin' Demon or maybe EVO II? Amplification...

    Hey guys, hope to get some useful advice here. I have a Ibanez RG1550, in which I plan to install a Sustainiac. According to their homepage this MUST be installed in the neck and effect the sound coming from the bridge pup... Whats the problem, you wonder? Well, I have always liked to use the...

    I play in Drop-D (mahogany body) and B Standard (walnut body) Caparisons, could anyone suggest a bridge humbucker and single coil space neck humbucker for these guitars? I've heard the D-sonic is good for drop tunings but i'd like more opinions :)

    I will report back in a little while, but for right now, I will leave you all with some pictures. The pictures aren't so great since this is even harder to photograph than I thought. It DOESN'T get any more dirty than any other guitar, but it just looks that way because of the finish.
  15. Pickups & wiring
    I've pretty much decided on using a PRS Dragon 2 pickup in the neck position, but I do not know what to drop into the bridge. Ive heard good things about Bill Lawrence L-500, but I'm not the biggest fan of Dime's tone (a bit sharp for my taste). Maybe a breed or a Seymour Duncan?

    So I got my D-activators into my RG1570 today. I am very impressed with them. They sound very similar to my Schecter Hellraiser with EMGs (81 & 85) with a bit less midrange. They are very similar in output to the EMGs. They do seem a bit more colorful. I like the neck D-Activator much more...

    How's a tone zone for instrumental rock like Satch or the like. I don't really want a Moe Joe or Fred because I play some harder stuff to. Thinking about a Tone Zone or breed.
