    Hi everybody. I'm getting new pickups for my 1570 and my 370. I'm thinking of going like this 1570 Evo-YJM-Evo or Evo-YJM-Evo I know the Evos are awesome, but does anyone here have any experience with YJMs? I would really like your oppions on this. Thanks.
  4. Pickups & wiring
    I got a Japanese 80's strat a few weeks ago and I love it except the pickups aren't really my thing. They're too low output. It's made of basswood with a maple top I think (sunburst) and the fretboard and neck are maple. I want a high output pickup for the bridge that can do high gain but still...

    Hey guys! Long time no see! I decided to drop back by jemsite and see what was going on! Hope everybody is doing alright. Now for the question... I'm probably going to be getting what i believe to be and early 70s Marshall JTM45. (not positive, but it is early 70s with 4 inputs, single...

    I have been looking at these more and more recently. I have been dithering over different amps (both combo's and head's) for about 6 months now. And I still cant decide what I really want/need. I am a big Yngwie fan (as some of you know) - and thats what got me onto the Marshall 1987x. I have...

    Has anyone mastered the Yngwie tone? What amp settings he uses, the effects, and of course the amp itself? Thanks in advance! :D This is the right one. :D

    Hey guys, I've read some threads where you guys have referred to DS-1 pedals as a boost with amps. My question is, if it's a distortion pedal, how do you use it to boos the signal rather then distort it. Am I just understanding this wrong? Would you run the DS-1 through the clean channel, or the...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I'm thinking about changing the stock pickups. so far I'm thinking about evolution and PAF...I want a santana/slash-like lead sound for the bridge and some nice clean sound for the neck. I play stuff by malmsteen, guns and roses, santana, some punk, jazz and blues... Any suggestions appreciated.

    I need a half stack now that my band is starting to play more and more gigs :D, but I cant decide which one.... I play shred/vai, Yes(the band), led zeppelin, classic rock, but mostly shred/vai. First amp that came to mind was marshall, but I did not like the sound of the new ones and I cant...

    Hi does anyone have or played a Fender US made malmsteen signature strat? if so, how does it play? do you like it? how does it sound and how does it compare to a jem7wh or a gibson sg standard?

    I recently bought a Bogner 4x12 cab from the guitar player in Overkill (remember that version of Winter's Frankenstein?) who is really cool.  He also had an old Marshall super-lead modded out by Lee Jackson, with the variac.  This thing just kills, closer to the sound of the first two Halen...
  15. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey Hey everyone, I'm just wondering. I play a lot of Yngwie Malmsteen and Randy Rhoads. What kind of pick ups can I stick in my guitar (2 hums) to have a YM or RR sound? P.S. this is a 22 fret guitar so no worries about the YM neck pickup 24 fret harmonic thingy...
  16. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I love my JS as much as the next guy, probably more, but I was never overly impressed with the pickups. Yesterday, I replaced the FRED & PAF Pro with Evo's. Holy tone Batman!! Someone needs to tell Joe about this :) It's hard to describe. I think it sounds like a warmer vwh. A highly recommended...
