    NGD: Ibanez RGA321F - need advice on what PUs to give it

    Fuck, I love these guitars, congrats! I don't need one since I already have an RGA121-NTF (same thing but natural maple top), but the 321s are just SO lovely. I just put in a D-activator in the bridge this last weekend in my RGA121. Honestly, that's what the guitar was missing. That thing...

    Share your technique and theory thread 🙌😊

    The latest thing I've learned is to be a bit more conscious of my body posture while I play, as well as my fretting hand grip strength. I've developed back pains from sitting like shit my entire life, and now I'm starting to develop what feels like tennis elbow from playing for too long and...

    Fun little 6'er

    Love the shape on this, and that's a nice walnut top! Reminds me of some walnut furniture my dad got a while back that had some real nice figured portions. Not gonna lie, I've wanted to make a guitar out of those for a while :lol: Looking forward to seeing it finished!

    Some guitars are too funny not to post

    For real eh? That thing's captivating.

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    Hehe you guys are awful, thanks for the feedback. :wub: We'll see what happens. I had to vent though. :lol: Sadly, no pics other than this: I took it because I found it infinitely amusing that the pickguard covers the side dots on the highest frets. I kinda love that, for some odd reason. You...

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    I have an opportunity to buy one of the limited edition PIAs in Sun Dew Gold, brand new, for a pretty good price, but my god is it still a ridiculous amount of money. I got to spend a good 45 minutes with it, and it was instant love. I'm trying SO hard not to get it. Part of me wants to justify...

    Post Your GAS

    Dunno about other Indo made guitars, but these do have QC issues. From my own experience and from the accounts I've read, Strandbergs usually seem to be very well built, but there is always the ONE thing that is wrong. In my case it was the frets, and potentially the electronics, (still trying...

    Post Your GAS

    As much as you can, attempt to try the one you're gonna buy before you actually buy it, and spend some time with it. That is, unless you are ready to very likely put some more money on a fret dress and to fix electronics, or you could incur the risk of fixing it yourself. ... speaking from...

    New PUs for an RGA321f

    I installed the pickup yesterday. Spent maybe 1.5 hours playing with it. I also play in either D or dropped C, with Ernie Ball skinny tops and heavy bottoms. (i.e 10-52s) Worth noting that I don't own a real amp, and I just ran it through NDSP Petrucci and Nameless. My initial impressions are...

    Comment Section Gold!

    I literally thought his name was Arturito until I was like 15 and learned proper English, and my mind was blown. There I was, thinking for 15 years that George Lucas was a native Spanish speaker, not knowing he isn't and we just ratchet af.

    The Carvin / Kiesel thread

    Totally. That's also evidenced by other brands that offer custom services, that tend to output a large amount of gaudy instruments. Skervesen, Mayones, Ormsby... and others whose names I can't quite get outta my head right now. If the owner is happy, then I'm happy. But I still hate those...

    Vik Duality 8 string run *CLOSED RUN*

    Yeah, Vik just set out to ne paid twice for this guitar. Given his track record, I doubt he's gonna let go of that money once the guitar sells. I hope for Fred's sake that he does return the money, but I have serious doubts.

    New PUs for an RGA321f

    For sure, I'll let you know. Surprisingly, I don't think I've ever played D Activators, even though they seemed to have been on everything for some time. I did hear a few demos on YouTube between them and a SD Black Winter, and I was surprised that I preferred the D Activator's sound on almost...

    The Carvin / Kiesel thread

    Haha yeah, it's funny. I normally don't do purple vomit burl tops (or burl tops in general), but this one I can keep looking at. I think the fact that it seems to be a more normal and muted blue with natural colored wood is why I like it. Then again, it might just be the picture quality. Maybe...

    New PUs for an RGA321f

    Never tried them, but I'm also curious, and I've also never read anything bad about them. With that said, this thread inspired me to get this for my own RGA121 I'll probably install it between this weekend and the next.

    The Carvin / Kiesel thread

    Oh boy, I'm not usually a fan of whatever weird and over the top concoctions Kiesel fans come up with, but those are HOT, and that first one is something else. That "f hole" really ties the whole design together.

    Post Your GAS

    Honestly I don't even care if it's the P90 version or the humbucker one, I am LOVING these things right now. I am so close to convincing myself to get the Revstar II Standard.

    Vik Duality 8 string run *CLOSED RUN*

    That's... even worse. I'm sorry you have to go through all that. This goes to everyone that's been scammed. God I hate this guy.
