Hi,
I've been looking into getting some new pickups for my Ibanez RG1570 - specifically the DiMarzio Crunch Lab DP228F and Liquifire (I've heard a few demos and think they sound really nice). I was just wondering if these will fit in the guitar without having to remove any wood? I saw somewhere that certain pickups are too tall for the RG1570 (but it did say 2008 model in brackets, I think mine's from 2005). Anyone know anything about this or have experience with this particular combination?
Cheers

I would be very surprised if the DiMarzios weren't a perfect replacement for stock Ibanez pickups.

In other words it should be fine.

They will be fine, great combo for RGs, though if your going for a JP sound, check out the Dimarzio Steve Special pickup too.

Also remember to get F spaced pups, sounds silly but its easy to forget.

Doesn't sound that silly to point out - I'm an absolute pickup replacement noob But yeah I did know to get F-spaced.

Interesting - how does that one compare to the crunch lab? To me the crunch lab sounded like a well rounded, accurate and articulate pickup (I'm not very good at describing these things :P).

Also, any thoughts on how they'll compare with stock?

I really like the crunchlab and liquifire set.
So that'd be a good choice IMO.
It'll be an amazing improvement over stock.
I've got an RG520QS and i replaced the v8/v7 in that with that setup and it makes a huge difference so much fatter. Not tried it in basswood yet but in my mahogany rg it kills anyway.
I dont think you'll have any problem getting them to fit either tbh since most ibanez pickups are dimarzio shaped to begin with.
Contemplating between another CL/LF setup or BKPs when i get around to upgrading my 7s pups.

Periphery used Crunch Lab/Liquifires until they got fancy and switched to BKPs and such, they're wonderful pick-ups unless you want to invest in the boutique-level stuff.
