My first thought would be a Bluesbucker.

Breed Neck in the Bridge position could work. It'll give you a good amount of Crunch. The Crunch Lab could also work or the Norton.

It's almost 6am and I just got home from work so maybe I'm reading this wrong but if you wired up the Crunchlab directly to the volume control and it still sounds out of phase, something else is wrong. Either there's something wrong with the pickup or there's something else wrong down the line. Try wiring the pickup directly to the volume pot and test it in a couple of different amps. If you're getting the same result in multiple amps, it's likely a faulty pickup.

My first thought would be a Cruiser in the neck, Area 58 in the middle and an Injector in the bridge.

Doesn't seem that strange. A lot of Ibanez guitars are basswood bodies.

Super2 and Super Distortion maybe?

Doesn't look like it. The backplate looks a bit off.

(also topic moved to the main pickup forum)

DiMARZIO RELEASES IGNO™ HUMBUCKING PICKUP

Staten Island, N.Y., March 25, 2019 – DiMarzio, Inc. announces the release of the IGNO™ (DP285F) humbucking pickup for electric guitars.

The new IGNO™ pickup was developed for Scott LePage of Polyphia.

Polyphia’s sound is characterized by sleek, upbeat melodies and catchy hooks that have been described variously as progressive, djent, funky, melodic, EDM, and trap. They don’t quite fit into any existing category. Mostly they’re just having fun, making unique music that is inspired by stuff they love.

Scott LePage wanted a bridge pickup that had the power to dig in when needed. Alnico 8 was used to increase the output. The IGNO™ features DiMarzio’s dual resonance design with both coils scatter wound to produce a warm response that’s not too high in the mids. This keeps the clarity and separation between the treble and bass.

DiMarzio’s IGNO™ pickup features black bobbins with distinctive gold pole pieces.

DiMarzio’s IGNO™ Bridge is made in the U.S.A. and may now be ordered for immediate delivery. Suggested List Price is $129.99 (MAP $89.99). For more information about the new IGNO™ humbucking pickup, please visit our website at www.dimarzio.com.

The IGNO™ is available in F-spacing only.

DiMARZIO RELEASES NOTORIOUS™ MINIBUCKER BRIDGE, NECK & MIDDLE PICKUPS

Staten Island, N.Y., March 25, 2019 – DiMarzio, Inc. announces the release of the Notorious™ Minibucker Bridge (DP283), Notorious™ Neck (DP284), and Notorious™ Middle (DP284S) pickups for electric guitars.

The new Notorious™ pickups were developed for Tim Henson of Polyphia.

Polyphia’s sound is characterized by sleek, upbeat melodies and catchy hooks that have been described variously as progressive, djent, funky, melodic, EDM, and trap. They don’t quite fit into any existing category. Mostly they’re just having fun, making unique music that is inspired by stuff they love.

Tim wanted the Notorious™ Minibucker Bridge to have moderate output in order to balance with his Notorious™ single coils in the neck and middle. This bridge pickup needed to have shimmering clarity and focus to capture his playing style. The Notorious™ Minibucker Bridge is the one that Tim likes to shred on.

Tim likes the clarity and focus of a vintage single coil in a 21-fret guitar and wanted to capture the same response and tone in his 24-fret signature guitar. The Notorious™ Neck and Middle single coils are voiced to roll off some treble to make up for the brighter location. Calibrated, degaussed Alnico 5 magnets capture the dynamics of vintage single coils. Tim says the Notorious™ Neck and Middle are “great for chords and ringing notes that hold through each other.”

The Notorious™ Neck and Middle are a splendid choice when you are searching for the dynamics of vintage pickups but prefer a smoother top end to even out some harshness in a bright guitar.

Tim shares that most of the time he’s on the fourth position, with the neck and middle pickups together, saying “I like to play Hendrixian-type riffs with it.”

The balanced output of DiMarzio’s Notorious™ pickups is calibrated to blend together, and all three pickups feature gold covers.

DiMarzio’s Notorious™ Minibucker Bridge, Neck, and Middle Model pickups are made in the U.S.A. and may now be ordered for immediate delivery. Suggested List Price for the Notorious™ Minibucker Bridge is $134.99 (MAP $99.99) and the Notorious™ Neck and Middle are $129.99 (MAP $89.99) each. For more information about the new Notorious™ pickups, please visit our website at www.dimarzio.com.

The Pickup Place / Re: Guitar Wiring Help Please!

Typically you'd want to wire the main lead wire to one of the volume pots then to the switch kinda like a Les Paul.

Why not just try the Gravity Storm neck to replace the Liquifire?

11
Hard to say. The only people that would know that would be the folks at DiMarzio. Given that the specs are almost identical, I wouldn't be surprised if they might be the same pickup.

The Pickup Place / Re: Ibanez RG421AHM pickup options
« on: March 15, 2019, 04:36:20 pm »
Here's something to try. Take the Air Classic Neck and pair it with the Breed Neck(in the bridge position). You might like the results ;)

13
The liquifire cleans up quite a lot nicer on the lower strings compared to the Air Norton.

I totally understand where you're coming from about not being able to do the pickup swaps. Being in Canada it's not that different than being in Norway (even our weather is similar!).

Another pickup that you might like to add some dimension would be the bluesbucker. It has some of that roundness that the Air Norton without the fat while retaining some really great cleans. Would probably work really well in a dark sounding guitar. I have mine in an Ibanez RG1880-S that's got a mahogany body and maple top, absolutely love it.

14
The only thing that might happen is that you might lose some output as the pickup would end up being a bit further away from the strings. The plastic shouldn't affect much else.

15
Personally I've always liked the LiquiFire more than the Illuminator neck as it's closer to the Air Norton that I've gotten very used to but just with a bit more brightness. It may work for you as well.

As for the middle, you really have to ask yourself how often you usually use the middle by itself. If all you want is the split sounds in positions 2 and 4 then the true velvet will work fine. You probably won't need a super switch.
