Had some time to kill today before treatment. Finally managed to blue all plastic parts for my Ibanez RG521 & gave it a fresh set of strings while I’m at it. It took me this long to realize that the pickups were too close to the strings. Since day one, I’ve been adhering to the Ibanez factory settings but the oversight here was that the output of the pickups should be taken into consideration. So both pickups were lowered into the cavity, not too much, just to eliminate wolf tones. This refers to the sound of the pickups fuzzing out while in distortion mode. FYI those are Seymour Duncan‘s Alpha – Omega set.
