The Pickup Place / Ibanez RG421AHM pickup options
« on: March 09, 2019, 10:36:37 am »
I just picked up an Ibanez rg421ahm which is an ash bodied hardtail rg with maple neck and fingerboard. I thought it would be a nice alternative voice to my rga42fm. I have a set of breeds and an air zone/air classic set on the shelf that I might put in this guitar. I don't want to lose the brighter/zing quality of the ash, just refine things. The quantum are quite good for stock pickups but they have a piercing quality that is just little too much for my taste. I am concerned the breeds and air zone might be a touch too dark. A set of air classic might be the best option but might be a touch too bright in the bridge.

What do you guys think? I have little experience with ash bodied guitars and I am not sure where to go with this one.

The Pickup Place / Quantum pickup color codes

Does any one know the wiring/color codes for the Ibanez Quantum pickups? I am trying replace them with either Dimarzio or Duncans. I need to know what is North Start/Finish and South Start/Finish so I can translate the wiring.

Im 99.99% percent the 3 wire bridge pickup is white=hot, black=ground and Red is tap. I think the neck is White=N+ Green= N- Red=S- and Black=S+ Can anyone confirm that? I know W/G go together and R/B do but I need to know which end is which so I get the phase relationships right. I don't want to have to do this multiple times trying to guess.

If I can lock down the color codes, the switch will be simple to sort out. That said, any one have a schematic for the 3SWLSC switch

Anyone tried this setup? What did you think? Considering it for an S670QM

The Pickup Place / Neck/Bridge humbuckers that balance well

I put a set of evolutions in my s521. The neck had to be noticeably lower to balance output. What would be a good set for a guitar with pickups bolted to body without as much adjustability to balance things?
