Hi guys, I need some advice on selecting the best pickups for an Ibanez JEM505.
Basically, I'm looking to get a bridge and neck humbucker set to make the ultimate metal guitar. I'm wanting to cover as many bases as possible from prog metal to thrash/death and modern metalcore styles. Some of...
Guys, I need some advise here. This had been my headache for a long time already.
So I have this RG with H-S config, 3 way switch, 1 vol 500K push pull.
The bridge pickup is Dimarzio Super distortion, the neck pickup is Ibanez S1 single coil.
wired 3 way switch with standard configuration : Hum...
Want to trade these two pups in very good condition with tons of lead left.
Open to virtually any DiMarzios or Duncan's. Especially interested in:
Gravity Storm set
Steve Morse set
PAF 36th set
Won't shy away from any classics like...
All this is the same for all of them, so putting it up here:
Location (City,State or City,Country):London, UK
International OK? : yes, but you pay for shipping, if you don't insure then I will not be held resposible for failings of the post office. I am also not responsible for any import fees...
So, here's my idea. I'd like to wire an X2N with a 3 way toggle, one volume and that's it. Can I achieve this? pos 1: in phase Pos 2: out of phase pos 3: straight to the amp (like bypassing the volume knob) Maybe I'm a moron, but it seems possible
Hey guys !
I change my pups with dimarzios yesterday. It was my first time, i was scared a bit. But i did it ! And it was too easy ! Omg, i have waited for nothing in past months :mrgreen:
I know most of you guys dont like x2n and activators, but as a metalhead i love them so much. Actually x2n...
Well I own a rg3xxv and decided to add an x2n to the bridge position and now the air norton s on the neck position sounds weak but in the dimarzio page it said that the chopper is a good combo for it so now I'm deciding to put the chopper on the neck and leave the x2n bridge will that combo work...
Well to start off, this is my first post! I have lurked here for quite some time and consider this site one of the best for gear questions and discussion.:p
Anyway, I own an S420 and for a few years now have had an x2n in it's bridge, but I also have an Sh-10 (full shred) laying around and I...
So here is the deal I have a 1550m and 2570vsl and I am looking to upgrade both sets of pick ups. I have an x2n and air norton I want to put in one and then so a set of bareknuckles in the other. I am originally thinking to upgrade the 1550m first as it has the v7/v8 versus the 2570 having the...
Made a recording with the X2N. I could get a farely tight sound out of it, but I can't seem to get that midrange chunk I want, I have the mids set pretty high on the amp, but still not what I want. I want that good midrange chunkyness, like my...
I have a RG42FM who came with inf1 & 2 pickups.
I recently switched them to a X2N (bridge) and a Tone Zone (neck).
I really love the TZ but i'm not quite sure about the X2N.
What i want is a great, heavy & fat rythm tone.
Can i achieve this with the X2N ?
I play through a Traynor YCV80...
I have been trying recently to find out what kind of pickups that were used in this guitar.
I've heard that theres an X2N in the bridge, but does anyone know what kind of single coils he used? Im trying to build a loosely accurate replica.
Probably been many posts regarding this, but I...
I'm using an X2N in a basswood bodied guiar, wit a Peavey VK212 with V30s and I boost my amp with a maxon od808(wich cuts some bass). The thing is that I have the bass on full on the amp and the resonance pretty high, and I steel feel it doesn't have enough low end :S The other guitarist in our...
Now accepting offers for other types of pickups from dimarzio...shoot me some offers but they must be "new"...Would like to get rid of this and I have several projects in the mix so I can use the traded pickup for something else I'm working on "I'll just buy new ones for my JPM project."...
I'm new here so let me begin by saying HELLO!
I have a Dimarzio X2N for sale it is new and never wired up "got it a long time ago and never installed it." It's a black and white color and am looking to either sell outright "accepting all reasonable offers," or trade for NEW air norton or NEW...
This guitar has been one of my main guitars, I put a lot of work into, but alas, I need money for other things.
I put a DiMarzio X2n in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan SH-2 in the neck. I can supply the original pickups if you want.
I changed the knobs too, I'l send the original too though
Well i have installed several pickups and none were ever like this.
Normally there are 2 wires one white and one bare and poof easy just connect it to where the old ones were.
This situation is different.
the OLD pick up was as i said white and bare, then i stripped the x2n wire to see...
