MattF82 Posted August 20, 2013 Share Posted August 20, 2013 Ok, so I have an Ibanez RG321fmsp, they come stock with V7 and V8 pickups. Ive found that a great many players consider them garbage, or at the very least, too bassy/muddy. I personally think that they are a bit muddy, but not necessarily trash. I have been told to adjust the height of the pickups, and also to switch the magnets from one pickup to the other (I believe an Alnico 5 in the V8 and ceramic in the V7). On the other hand some have said to deposit them in the trash as soon as possible. My question is this: should I simply replace them with something else, or should I attempt to adjust them first? I have never done any work on pickups before and would hate to ruin anything in my first attempt. Is it a very complicated task? Does the coil tap complicate things any further? I greatly appreciate any info and advice, as I am a novice in all of this. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
