  1. The Guitar Rack
    So, I just come out with questions like this outta the blue, with no one to answer them except you guys, so here it is: what would happen if I put a bridge pickup in the neck slot?

    Hi Everyone, I am looking to replace the stock PRS pickups on my PRS Santana SE with some new Iron Gear Rolling Mill Humbuckers. As part of this I am looking to set up a coil tap on both the neck and bridge pickup using push/pull pots. As this guitar has 2 control knobs (master volume & master...

    Hey! :wave: I'll introduce myself, I'm the new guy here, and I have a lot of questions (but I will investigate first, don't worry, I don't want to be a pain in the ass). But here's a tiny one, perhaps you can help me with it. I'm planning to install a set of '59 Duncans in an Epi LP STD, but...

    This set includes an EMG 81 and an EMG 85. After several hours of fitting and soldering and them not working (due to my Epiphone electronics being different from the schematics (so many additional ground wires and silly connectors)) I managed to get it working. My epiphone electronics now follow...

    What are the chances someone has a 1997 Blackmore Stratocaster, the Made in Japan model? Anyone know where I can find one? Thanks!

    Hi everybody, I just wanted to ask which pickups may suit my purposes best. I like the 80's hair metal sound and lead tones of Reb Beach or George Lynch very much, but on the otherhand i also like the Billy Gibbons Sound and Blues/Hard Rock in general. I want to replace my current jackson...

    2004 Ibanez JEM 7VWH with Edge Pro Tremolo, rosewood fret board and Ibanez UV1000C Case. The 2004 models maintained the rear locking nut screws as apposed to the top mount. Many experts prefer the 2004 rear mounted version. This guitar has the locking stud mod from Ibanez Rules. It also has...

    Hi, I want to buy a neck pickup for my ibanez guitar, I have Three options but I am not sure about which one to choose, I have a DP159 bridge pickup and I wonder what would be a good combination, I know the evo neck is supposed to be compatible with this one but I have heard good things about...

    Anyone use these? Occasionally, I turn them off by accident and then later on, maybe the next day, my setup sounds like crap to me until I stumble on the fact that they are off. I'm thinking of just disconnecting them altogether. I've read that doing this can really mess with the sound and...

    The entire pickguard assembly was replaced by a pre-wired assembly I bought from ebay that uses a mini-switch and push-pull toggle to give me series/parallel wiring and bring the bridge pickup into any combination.

    Hi all. I've a few random questions about guitar pickups - I'm going to get a new bridge pickup for my Dean V, and it's going to be either a Dimarzio Super Distortion or a Dimarzio Tone Zone.. thing is, I can't decide between the two! From sound samples I've heard of both (and also playing a...

    Hey guys I am looking for a new axe and would like your opinions. I really like the LTD Alexi Laiho signature model, but am not sure it is worth over a grand to me. I am not buying it for the name. Don't get me wrong I like COB and Alexi is a great guitarist but that is not why I am looking at...

    Hey guys i have been looking for a new guitar that I will be buying in a week or two. I am solely a metal player. My last rig was an Ibanez RG7620. I had to sell it about a year ago b/c I needed the cash and have been axeless since. I came across this guitar and was wondering if anyone knew...

    Ok so I really like the stockies in my S, But I want just a little more power and clarity. I'm thinking a cross between Megadeth/Iron Maiden. I wanna play some dissonant stuff also and be able to hear all the tones clearly. Suggestions? I've considered Evolutions, D-Activators, and maybe some...

    Hi all I'm a rather new guitarist, and I'm currently learning sweeping techniques on electric guitar for solo purposes. Problem is I can't seem to sweep cleanly. I seem to have this problem of getting a lot of noisy while sweeping. The moment I lift my finger off a fret to go to the next...

    I've read all I could find about Robin Trower's sound and he seems to play stock strats and does very little to mod or replace his pickups. It's basically a stock guitar setup for him. I've got a stock American Fender and I've been playing through the neck pickup but I can't get his sound...
