I have brought an Ibanez RG 270
Just the neck and body
NO pickups
NO electronics
NO floyd
Still has the tuning machines though
What should i do with this Guitar
I have a few ideas, it has an HSH pickup configuration and i was thinking Seymour Duncan blackouts or some dimarzio pickups for the humbucker, BUT I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT TO DO FOR THE SINGLE COIL
What pickups do u think?
what hardware?
what switches?
what capacitors?
thanks for your help! i thought it might be fun to get other peoples input into this guitar and ill post up a vid of it when its all done!
heres a pic of it in current state

oh wow i didn't know they made those, never bothered to check before because none of my guitars have single coils in them :P
any recommendations for dimarzio pickups? i was thinking a D activator in the bridge, and crunch lab in the neck and for the single coil idk

Did you put in a single sized humbucker or re route it to fit a humbucker?
What kind of pickups have you got in it and how does the guitar sound/play?

I routed it out for a humbucker, I have a tonezone in the bridge, a superdistortion in the middle and a paf pro in the neck. it sounds good. the hardware is crap tho (be happy you didnt get any ) it plays better than my strat

You do anything with it, dude?

I have sanded down the top, and i reckon i like how the wood looks so im probably going to go for a natural finish with some paua inlays in the body and head stock
Add some of these classy knobs

But with this new direction in design i am thinking of making it my jazz/blues guitar and i am thinking about getting a Seymour Duncan vintage blues set and coil tapping it, and im still stuck on what to do with the single coil
