    Confusion around pickup wiring in general.

    Howdy, y'all. I ordered some Black Winters for my Agile Chiral Parallax 7 string and have all my tools ready. I just want to get some reassurance from others who actually know what the fuck they're doing. I bought BWs for my Ibanez RG7321 a few years ago and had the same confusion. In my old...

    Pickup not showing DC resistance but still works?

    Hi all, I just got a new (used) pickup, a Gibson 500T. I have one in my Gibson Explorer and really like it, so I got another one. The first thing I do whenever I get a used pickup is to measure the DC resistance to make sure the pickup works. This is the single wire with the braided cover. I...

    Lace Aluma Stealth 9s

    Hey guys, Has anyone had any experience with changing from EMG 909/909xs to Lace Aluma Stealths?

    New Pickup Recommendations?

    Hi all! Sorry for the long winded post ahead of time lol. I recently picked up a Solar SB1.6 and while I love the feel of the guitar, the pickups leave a bit to be desired, especially in terms of clarity and the mids are scooped. I'm pretty happy with the tone I get out of my 7 string with...

    Problem sourcing replacement pickups

    Greetings all and I hope this is the right place for this question. A few months ago I picked up an Agile geodesic 8 string multi scale, plays well enough for me and I'm happy with it, except for the pickups.

    Could I get a working wiring diagram for this guitar?

    I want to make a disclaimer that I know nothing about wiring guitars. I plan to learn with a new guitar kit that I'm going to buy soon, but for now I am paying someone else to do it for me because it's an extremely complicated job. Anyway. I tried to get my guitar set up with a luthier who is...

    KM7 MK iii Artist pickup recommendations

    I got a KM7 MK iii artist from Sweetwater last winter, and as much as I love how it plays, I wasn’t into the Fishman KM set that came with it. I put in some Dimarzio Edge 7’s that came in buddy’s Ibanez (and a 500k pot), and it sounds and plays so much better. It’s about 90% there, but the...
