I'm not too keen on the pickups, but I think they just require a little tweaking to make them scream. The action is a little high for my taste, but other than that I'm getting off wanking on the whammy bar. I've never had one before.:mrgreen:She's a beauty. How do you like the EVH pickups in it? And the guitar in general for that matter? Happy NGD!
I'm still getting used to it but I like it a lot. It's definitely different than my SZ720 which has a neck like the bastard son of a PRS and a LP.Japanese rg with mahogany body pre-prestige days. They sound great and feel good ive got a blue one. How you digging the super wizard neck?
They don't jive, at least not to my ears. I let my cousin have a whack at it and he likes the pickups. So naturally the tone is in the ear of the beholder. Ultimatately they will be swapped out for a set of Evo's or a TZ/AN setup.That's my favorite finish in the 520's. I would love to here it with the EVH's. Wonder how they jive with a mahogany body? hmmm...
Go for the Evo's - trust me buddy.They don't jive, at least not to my ears. I let my cousin have a whack at it and he likes the pickups. So naturally the tone is in the ear of the beholder. Ultimatately they will be swapped out for a set of Evo's or a TZ/AN setup.
HERE HERE!!!!As I keep saying to all those that will listen - the RG520QS is one of the best RGs around (I am biased as I have 3) but for the price and the quality they are the sweetest spot in the Ibanez RG series market.
Did you wire it correctly? LOL!Alaskabat, I'm not a huge fan of the super distortion, but the PAF Pro may find it's way into the next guitar I get.
