    Wiring a pickup backwards

    Perfect. Thanks guys, that is exactly what I wanted confirmed. There will be a neck pickup to go with this and I was planning to never use them together but if I wire that backwards too then I could use the middle position. Dont worry about the screw, I have a dremel that will hopefully fix that...

    Wiring a pickup backwards

    Hi everyone I have done a search online but cannot find much on this. I bought a guitar a while ago and it has a faulty pickup. It isnt a cheap one but it is also stuck in the guitar (100% rounded off screw). The south hot wire on the humbucker is somehow shorted with the bare wire. My...

    Mahogany Ibanez RG made in Japan

    Thank you everyone for the replies. This is exactly what I am after. RG2020/2120X would be prefect and is the only one I have been looking out for already but they were really rare here. That and the 520 but only the QS seems to be mahogany and all the others available in the UK were basswood. I...

    Mahogany Ibanez RG made in Japan

    Hi everyone. I am after something a bit specific, like the title says, a prestige/Japanese made Ibanez RG with a mahogany body with 6 strings. I own quite a few 7 strings but not heard of many 6s other than almost all of the J Customs. It needs to be an RG shape and not an S. Not too bothered...

    Single midi controlled bypass looper

    Hi everyone I am building a midi pedal board with a MorningStar FX MKII controller. All of the pedals other than my compressor are midi controlled so can be bypassed when I make patches. Even my main amp accepts midi to change channels. Does anybody know of a single-loop midi controlled bypass...

    Tube amp popping

    Sorry, forgot to mention, that is about the only thing I have tried so far other than muting the FX loop. But both times I did try the amp was behaving so there were no popping or clicking noises. The popping is not all of the time, sometimes it is worse and then gets better, sometimes the amp...

    Tube amp popping

    Hi everyone. Recently my amp has started popping :( It had a new set of tubes a few months ago, preamp and power tubes. I had them swapped out after it made a very loud pop noise through the speaker while it was still on standby and it blew a fuse. Apparently it was a bad power tube, I...

    Ibanez S5527-TKS Prestige S7

    Hi All I am very interested in this guitar. I have a small (very large) list of guitars I want and at the moment this is number one on it that isn't old and rare. I have always used Ibanez RGs but never tried an S. And this one is Prestige and has my favourite bridge. All the specs seem perfect...

    NGY! NPY! Oops...Ibanez Collection

    Done the KJG mod on the 2027 today. Works fine with two outputs but on the single output on 50/50 mix I am getting every other string being very quiet compared to the others. Have read online that this can happen. Is there anything I can do to fix it? Have had a quick look and found nothing...

    NGY! NPY! Oops...Ibanez Collection

    I do love the 2027. I haven't put it down since buying it, not even stopped to put new strings on or set it up. The piezos are amazing, that's the next upgrade on the 'Idiot' guitar once I've filled the fridge

    NGY! NPY! Oops...Ibanez Collection

    Cheers! Still a few more on my want list, mainly a white Universe. After getting the XL and the 2027 in the last month that will have to wait a while. I'm hungry...

    NGY! NPY! Oops...Ibanez Collection

    Hi everyone. I said a while ago I would post a NGD and I never got round to doing it, so here is my NGY post. At the beginning of the year I had two guitars and about three pedals. This year I have gone a bit...spendy. So here is my new family of Ibanezs with any mods I have done to them...
