available na ba sa manila ang mga different variety colored na dimarzio pickup? if ever saan meron?

in my location they need to order directly to Dimarzio.
they're asking $10 more for each different color.
waited a month for it   :cry:

How i set up pick up height in my RGs :

1. Tune/Intonate/Set the action - you want it to be steady and easy as possible
2. Plug in straight to the amp, get the best cable you can use while youre at it.
3. Set everything @ 12' oclock, both clean and dirty channel. So you can determine the guitar's "raw" sound.
4. Set the pickup height high then work your way down,(of course you need to balance the pickup volume or output first,it doesnt matter if you set the bridge or neck first,it really depends which one youre using the most)metal players usually leave it high enough for compression but ideally,you want the pickups to perform at their best. Too low=less compression,less attack,less bass but it sounds clearer. Too high= muddy,bassy,more compressed. Sustain/string feel(youll notice that guitar will get more "acoustic" feel to it once you lower down the pickups,lower means less to no magnetic pull from the pickups) really depends on the pickup height,too high will pull the strings and too low will kill the signal.

To sum it up,just use your ears. This is how i setup mine.

That's how i set up mine. hehe.  :wink: And it takes time talaga. I've had my Tone Zone pickup for almost a year, ngayon ngayon ko lang nakukuha yung tamang height.

I told ya the neck would sound better sa bridge cause it would add more bass and mids.  :lol:

Oh, maybe you got to fiddle with the pickup height. It helps a lot. Take some time tweaking the height.  :wink:

Yeah! Kaso nakalimutan ko sabihin kay mang Jun nung pinalagay ko haha! And I wasn't expecting na sakit ng ulo pala pag stock mid pup ang naka-install. Im hunting for a good middle pup right now to add more thickness when combined with the bridge.

Dimarzio breeds with a no name cheapo from a strat copy in middle.
Clean sound is middle & split neck (5 way switch is reversed)
-paano ung sinasabi niyang "5 way switch is reverse"?

^baka ibig sabihin pabaliktad yung switching system ng guitar niya, instead switching up for the neck position eh switch down ang ginagawa niya. As for my guitar it means siguro that my middle pup really sucks hehe. I'll probably replace it with an artec entwistle pup.

AFAIK, wala. hehe. JB has a very unique sizzle. As well as the 59. Maybe you can try Dimarzio's PAF pickups, as a counterpart ng 59.

ako din naguguluhan..plan to replace my bridge humbucker pick-up
choosing from = evo , tonezone and super distortion
base sa reviews sa net:
evo= perfect for leads and it gotta kick their ass
tonezone = versatile
super distion = is the best or one of the best high output humbucker pick-up that ever heard, and recommended by musicians.

so nakakalito lahat talaga.hindi naman pwede i-try mo lahat execpt na lang na may extra cash  :-)
lahat kasi magaganda reviews, depende na din siguro sa technique and skills natin.
HTH :-)

ahahahaha... sa bridge may sagot na ako between sa tonezone and evo and base sa mga comments and reviews
mas ok ang tonezone kaysa sa evo (base lang po ito sa mga nag comments sa youtube while the guitarist compares the tonezone and evo in ibanez rg guitar.
pero kung titignan mo sa dimarzio pickpups, super distortion ang mostly recommended because it was a great hight output..

sa neck: air norton bagay daw sa tonezone or super distortion , any na high output..
             paf pro - ganun din
             so either of the two ka na lang kung anu available..
