  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Went to put the stock EMGs back into my LTD MH7, and thought I had all I needed, then started looking at the selector switch and really realized I have no idea what I’m doing here. :lol: I can swap passives all day, but I have no idea what to do with the quick connects or the selector switch...

    I emailed Suhr a couple weeks ago and asked them to send me everything they'd spec on a new Modern like mine with black hardware. So they did, right down to every screw. If you're considering it, it's $356.50. I love this guitar but I am definitely a black hardware kind of guy. Suhr purists and...

    I have an old (~2003) DKMG archtop with EMG-HZs that I haven't played in years, but looking to spruce it up and play some metal again. Old threads suggest EMG 81/85s as a good swap, but its been a hot minute since I've looked into metal gear, and I'm thinking there might be some newer pickups...

    Hey guys, my Randall Satan is almost a couple years old and I'm wanting to swap out the stock 6L6 and KT88 tubes that came with it. I'm looking at a pair of Tung Sol 6L6GC and a pair of Tung Sol KT120 but wasn't sure if there were some other options to consider. This is my first tube head (other...

    I'm not touching the Lemonburst LP with the zebra '57s. That guitar is as perfect as anything I could ask for... it just sings. However, having compared the two, I find that I'd like the Lightburst Les Paul traditional to be a bit livelier, perhaps a bit hotter, and will probably go with...

    Has anyone made the swap from lo-pro edge 7 to edge pro 7? I've never used the edge pro 7 but the lower profile seems nice. I read somewhere that the swap could be made.

    Hi. At the moment I have a Dimarzio Super Distortion in my Schecter omen 6 guitar. It works and sounds pretty good. I mostly play it through Guitar Rig 5 and a 6505+ head. Overall I like the tone I get, but I also want something slightly "cleaner" meaning a little more clarity. I mainly play...

    Hey guys! I picked this up of Cloudy earlier last week. Guitar showed up absolutely immaculate if you ever wanted to know if you should deal with him btw. Onto pics and stuff! Woo! Before! I like the BK Blackhawks, but i'm not a fan of the look. I had 3 other sets of pickups that i was...

    I went to a gear swap today at Gear Exchange here in OKC. Gear Exchange is a regular stop for me; it's where I picked up my 5150. This week, Gear Exchange - along with one of the guitarists from Crazy Love Hawk, Shaun - put a swap meet together. I'd done my best to get the word out about it on...

    ...for a Rectoverb 50 and Epi Les Paul? I like Rectos, always loved the double I used to play though at a friends house. Does the Rectoverb sound pretty much the same as a double? My 7621 is in mint condition, as is the gear I would be swapping for. I think it sounds like a good swap...

    I have an Ibanez RG Premium RG921QMF guitar that comes with the Tight End R fixed bridge. I see there is another version of the same guitar that would come with a tremolo Edge Zero II bridge. I'm thinking if it isn't too big a deal, I might swap bridges. I see a couple Edge Zero II bridges...

    Ok, so my Suhr came with a pair of humbuckers, a three way blade, a volume, and a tone with a coil tap for both pickups. Tapped, I currently get the neck coil of the neck pickup, and (I'd have to check, but I imagine) the bridge coil of the bridge. Individually they sound awesome, but I mostly...

    I've built a bunch of desktops in my days, but never really messed around with the internals on my laptop. Bought this thing 4 years ago, and it's still decent spec, so I'm looking to upgrade to an SSD and gain some retrieval speed. My laptop has USB 2.0 ports, no USB 3. So I'm looking at...
  14. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Wirelessly posted I much prefer the sound of an 81 for six strings and in almost all recorded tones, just curious if anybody has made the swap on the 7's and how they feel about it? Considering the swap on my hellraiser

    Title sums it all up really. Is it necessary to swap the posts as well?

    Oil that board a little and wool the frets. Retaped the neck pickup the right way while the strings are out of the way. New trem! Out with the old... In with the new. Oh yeaaaaah :smoking: Lets test it out a little.. Dime style :dime:

    Will update as I do it. It's dawning on me with every second how big a job this is, with the restringing and setting up of two guitars I've got to do once they're swapped over, too :lol: I'm so slow at this shit it's not even funny... UPDATE: RG stripped! UPDATE 2: Xiphos stripped! UPDATE...

    This is actually a pickup swap in progress, while I look up some wiring info. I had hoped that the SBMM pickup colors were the same as DiMarzios, but alas, not the case. Anyway, I'm waiting for the fretboard to soak up some Guitar Honey, so I figure I'd get started on posting this up. Here we...

    Wonder if anyone wants to swap a set for these or if you just want to try them I don't care I'm just cleaning up and I have a bunch of pickups sitting around that I'll never use.

    This guy: Basswood, maple capped body. Maple neck/fb. Current pickups are a DiMarzio Norton bridge and an Air Norton neck. This particular pickup combination works really well with Orange's counterpart Red which is the same except for having a rosewood fretboard. The problem is that while...
