The Pickup Place / MOD Idea! 1/4 Air mod!!!
« on: February 19, 2020, 06:22:48 PM »
Instead of removing the spacer on one of the coils, why don't just cut the spacer in half and only "air" the three coils for the bass strings?

I might actually try this. I need a tonezone.

The Pickup Place / Illuminator 7 replacement
« on: May 22, 2018, 05:32:59 PM »
Please suggest a new pickup set I can try. My Ibanez RG927QMZ currently have DiMarzio illuminators in it. I like the distorted sound but it doesn't do cleans very well for my taste. The highs and pick attack are too rounded.

I'd like to have something that does better on cleans, thick/warm but not too rounded highs with more bite and good sustain/harmonics. (If such pickup exists.)

I play mostly instrumental stuff and play through a variety of amps depending on the venue. I sent this to dimarzio support but I'd liek to hear your suggestions! Thanks!

The Pickup Place / PAF 36th Anniversary neck output

Noob question, I'm planning to get a PAF 36th dp103 + illuminator bridge for my Ibanez RG. Volume-wise do you think the paf3th neck will pair well with the illuminator bridge? Will there be any noticeable volume drop? I have tried using an HFH + Evo combo in the past, and the humbucker fromhell (226 mV output) pairs well with the hotter Evo bridge.

Thank you all!!!

The Pickup Place / Norton possible replacement

Hey guys, I am new here. this is my first post and sorry for my english.

I have a Norton bridge pickup. Its almost perfect but I wished it had a "little more" output, scream and crunch. Not sure if a pickup like that exists but if it does or anything close to it let me know.
