Don't know why they put a six pack with 7-string pups. Does seem crazy.

Changes are pretty easy. It just takes a steady hand when you're soldering the wires in. There's quite a few good resources in the Sevenstring.org Workbench forum, on how to do it. If you can get someone to guide you through it the first time, it's a bit easier.

That's cool, I'll go read some guides then.

I've noticed that my Low B and E strings buzz a bit when I pick them, Where as the other strings don't buzz. I can always pick more softly, but I have a feeling its more to do with action/ string gauge. My guitar's in B standard btw.

Well its not that bad. We just have to buy a B string.

I picked a bad time to get the pick-ups installed, as my guitar store is closed for all of Easter, so they won't be finished until next Thursday.

that sucks, on top of the fact it will probably come back wired wrong, as so many guitar techs seem to do.

eh, at least I gave them the instructions that came with the pick-ups. That should minimise the chances of failure a bit. hopefully

The previous owner of my 1527 said the pickups were a set of dimarzio Breeds, but i didn't bother to research them until after i bought the guitar. But seeing as I got a good deal for it, I bought it anyway.

The pickups are most likely stock, but there is a small chance he wasn't lying about them being proper dimarzio's, they could be evo 7s or blaze 7s, but I doubt it lol

here's my 2006 Royal Blue RG1527





both pics unfortunately taken with my old Nokia N80 a few months after I'd bought the guitar. I have swapped the bridge pickup for a D-activator since
and by the way, I have no clue why those jeans are on the table

i think i have a genius idea........... RG1527RB with an RG1527M neck. then make that headstock RB but keep the maple board. then put the rosewood neck on the 1527m and paint that headstock white (and get a black logo). good or bad ideas? because i checked with the VRG builder and it looked goooood.

i might buy a 1527m just to do that...

Not that much actually, but since royal blue was the only color available at the time, I had no choice Originaly I wanted a black one, because RB looked weird in the catalog and online, but when I saw it live, I liked it way more than just black.
If I could choose any finnish for it now, I would choose something like

but a little more red-ish. There was a limited Ibanez RG3xx at some point with exactly the finnish I wanted, but I couldn't find it now
