    (no idea why auto correct changed "tremolo" to "Tremaines" in the subject line.. nor what a "Tremaines" is for that matter...) Need a new single coil pickup cover and trim bar for my Ibanez '91 S540LTD. Anyone have these lying around they want to part with? Gratuitous body shot:

    Nice comparison of the Humbucker vs its Single coil sized "brothers". Also very interesting guitar system where we just detach and reattach the pickups as Modules :)

    Guys, I am getting a few more single coil guitars and am looking at ways to cut the 60 cycle hum that doesn't break the bank and will work on all my single coil guitars (will be 5 shortly). So, switching pickups is a no go right off the bat. I have heard the EH Hum Debugger is both great, and...

    I picked up used EC-400VF not too long ago, I knew when I bought it that the bridge pickup was lacking output, but I figured I'd be swapping pickups anyway so no big deal. Yesterday I installed a Dimarzio crunch lab in the bridge and I also put in a new volume pot just in case that was the...

    I might get a SSS Strat like guitar soon (wife will be pissed as soon as she finds out) and even though I want to keep the Mid and Neck Singles for the "Strat Tones" but I really would like to try something else for more Punch on the Bridge side, lets call it the "80's Metal / VH Tone" on the...

    Been wanting another Talman TM303, but this time with the idea of a strat with 3 P90s. Along the lines of this: I haven't opened up my current Talmans as my replacement pickups have yet to arrive, though I'm also guessing that the routings would probably be exclusively for single coils. And...

    Hi guys, I'm looking into the logistics of putting EMGs in my Ibanez RGD and from looking at the diagram, I see that it doesn't have instructions on using TWs with only one master volume. Just wondering if anyone has any clue if that's possible at all? I'm doubtful as on the TW pot it only has...

    I want to setup a two humbucker guitar so that I can coil tap both coils at one. The diagram I found shows them tapped when the push pull is up, but I want them tapped when the push pull is down. I assume I just move the two wires from the bottom two lugs of the push pull, to the top two lugs...

    I need a bit of help figuring out the best way to do this. It's been a while since I wired anything other than 1 pickup with 1 volume knob and i'm a bit rusty. Guitar in question is my new LTD. I will not be using a tone pot, so I can use some type of switch or a push/pull pot for the blower...

    Okay, this one really *is* just another cherry burst LP. :lol: I stopped by Action Music yesterday, which was my first mistake. They had this 2013 Les Paul Traditional Pro II for a price that was just barely affordable for me. Since it's one of the really good ones that Nashville can...

    Today i swapped out my JB for a SD Custom, while i was at it i removed the bridge from the push pull, leaving the neck connected so when pushed, it alone would be coil split. But i am not able to blend the bridge humbucker with the coil split neck when the 3way is in the middle position. If i...

    So, I've decided to go with the Freeway Ultra in my LP with the BKP Rebel Yell bridge and Mississippi Queen neck. The diagram states that the, "neck pickup should be the same magnetic polarity as humbucker's screw coil for hum-cancelling operation in positions 1 and 5." Free-Way 3X3-05...

    Well... I guess you cant escape owning a jem, even of you are not a fan of Vai, like myself :) The guitar is flawlessly made, as expected from Team J Craft Japan. I absolutely love the 2x DiMarzio Evolution humbuckers & 1x Evolution single coil pickup. I never liked Single Coil pups before...

    Since I pulled the Blazes from the Apex 100, and put my 81-7H in there from my RGD, I needed a neck pickup. Had to import this from the states, but really looking forward to trying it out.

    I am looking to put a push pull vol pot in the SD with a couple Dimarzio pups and I haven't been able to find a solid diagram that I can understand. It isn't entirely clear if I can use the 3 way toggle that comes in the SD or if I need to get a different one. I don't care about getting a...

    I have a late 80s Kramer Focus 6000 and I put a SD JB in the bridge in which I am extremely happy with. However, there are single coils for the middle and neck that I would like to change out. I was thinking a Dimarzio air norton in the middle or neck (not sure) and I need an opinion on...
