  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi guys, I have recently purchased an RG370AHMZ which comes with the standard import COR-TEK 5-way selectable switch. I find this switch very flimsy. Is the YM-50 an improvement over the COR-TEK switch?
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Hi guys I just changed the pickups and replaced all the electronics in my rg550 today to an evolution set and a ym 50 switch with standard rg/Jem h-s-h wiring but I'm having issues.

  7. Pickups & wiring
    I can't seem to get this one right. For some reason, I can't get the humbucker coils to cancel in 2&4 position or the middle pick up to stand alone in #3 position. Middle pickup does not work in positions 2 & 4 either. This is how I have her wired now: 1 Bridge red 2 Single red 3 Neck...
