  1. Pickups & wiring
    I hope someone out there can help, I need a wiring diagram for an RGA 32. I am resurrecting this guitar as it was in a sorry state when I got it; sanded to death, no bridge etc. If it had passive pickups it would be straightforward but it has the 3v loz pickups (more wires than I am used to)...

    Hey does anyone know where I can find a wiring diagram for an Ibanez Prestige Rg2550z from 2008? All I can find is diagrams dating 2007 and below. I really goofed the wiring somehow and need to look at the original state if possible. I've looked at this www2.ibanez.com site that seems to have...

    Hi! I just grabbed today for around 200bucks white 1987 RG 410 (it's cream colour due to discolouration, and has cigarette marks on it :P). I was surprised how small frets are on it. Since it's still technically Roadstar II series, the neck feels a bit chunkier then let's say late 80's RG570...
  4. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Ok, so I've done some maaadddd research the last few days on this forum, and have seen many references to the KJG mod, printed diagrams, etc. I just ordered an RG2020XTB and an AF207BS yesterday, and I want to mod the 2020. What, am I freakin' rich?...those 207s are normally 3 grand! No, I'm...

  6. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Here's the challenge: Can anyone tell if this modification can be done or not? If yes, are there any special parts?? I don't suppose you have a diagram??? Guitar is a RG2120 (2 HB with 5-way split switch). I don't like 5-way switches, never needed all 5 positions, and it gets in the way so...
  7. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Does anyone have, or know of a good clear wiring diagram of how the JS guitars are supposed to be wired? I just picked up an Inferno Red JS-1 and a brand spanking new Black Pearl JS-1000, and when I jammed out on them it was so obvious that one was different, even my girlfriend noticed! I did...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    Hi gang. I'm installing Seymour Duncans in my S2020x, but I'm having trouble with the wiring. I used Kevan's wiring diagram on Universal Jems, but translated the color coding to Duncan's pups. If I'm not mistaken, DiMarzio Green and Bare are the same as Duncans. DiMarzio Red = Duncan Black...

    Okay, I'm finally ordering some DiMarzios for my RG2027. Do these need to be F-spaced? I don't know if the ALL the 7-string pickups from DiMarzio are automatically F-spaced or not. Thanks!
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I had a chance to play on a JPM yesterday and was blown away by the pickups. It seemed so much more controllable, responsive and versatile than the Evo/Paf Pro combination that I currently have on my Jem. Basically I now want to install and Air Norton in the neck of my Jem and a Tone Zone in...
  11. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    I just bought my second 7 string guitar, an RG7420 and noticed that the Pickups sucks. I have read some other posts in this forum about people who changed the pups to DiMarzio Blaze II. Then i wonder, is it hard to do that by yourself. Or do you recomend to let a professional to do it ? Is there...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    Does anyone have or know where I can find a wiring diagram for a standard 3-way fender-style switch using the following configuration: 1) Bridge pickup in series 2) Bridge and Neck pickups split (inner coils) in parallel 3) Neck pickup in series 1 Volume, 1 tone control It's essentially a...
  13. Pickups & wiring
    My wayward "come home to daddy" UV has now been christened gimp and is staying. But to stay it needs to stand out from the other one, and thus it has been decreed that it is time to find out exactly what one can do with a breadboard, some wires, two push/pull pots and a VLX91 5 way switch. So...
  14. Pickups & wiring
    Well, shortly after getting my RG1220 I got the urge to replace the 3-way blade switch with a 5-way blade switch so I could get a little more versatility in my tonal options. Being completely electronically inept, I went to both the Dimarzio and Ibanez sites for wiring diagrams. Dimarzio's site...
  15. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi All, I am trying to find replacement screws for my DT-555. Particularly, I need the ones for the Tremolo and Nut as they are used the most. Mine is a 1985 model. I also need to replace the pick ups and haven't been able to find a wiring diagram. Any help would be GREATLY appreaciated...
  16. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I absolutely love my RG2020X but I have noticed that its magnetic output level seems to be less compared to many other non DE equipped guitars. When I compared my RG2020X to my brothers RG520Q the RG2020 seems a bit quieter overall (they have the same pickups at the same height). Also there...

    I just got a set of Dimarzio pickups for my S540 and I went to install then and I have never seen a switch like the one in this guitar. I was wondering if anyone could e-mail me of a wiring diagram showing how to wire the pickups so that they coil tap on the inbetween positions. Thanks. my...

    Making all the text on your Web site sure does make it look pretty, but when you're having server issues, your site ends up looking like this. How useful is that?
  19. Pickups & wiring
    Can the standard Ibanez 5-way on a h-s-h (S2540) guitar be wired so the the middle position is split coil neck/bridge rather than the middle pup alone? Greg
  20. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey guys I am having one hell of a time trying to figure out how to get rid of this annoying buzz. First off As most of you know I have completed a mod on my UV777BK which consisted of replacing the mirrored pickguard with a plain simple black one and removing the single coil. When I removed...
