well, if it helps any, i have the Infinity ones (INF) and theyre great! i have a rg370 dx
5 way selector, so maybe thats what gives it the versatility, but maybe its the pickups

WTF? Duncan? You mean Duncan Designed? That's Seymour Duncan's cheap, Korean-made line.

The QM1 neck and QM2 bridge on my Prestige S1520 are the best stock Ibanez pups Ive heard, Im not so sure about changing them out (for a Dimarzio SUper Distortion bridge, and Air Norton neck)

This is the best IMO, Seymour Duncan® IBZ(H), Japan made. Marty Friedman uses those.

Yeah, he has them in his SZ that we don't get in the US.

We also don't get the tube practice amp that everyone else gets, called the ValBee. It's a really small, high-gain amp. It's also blue.

Yup, basically you can trust almost everything Japan made, quality is very good. But the price can be unbearable...

It is now. 20 years ago, when people were discovering that anything Japanese is amazing, it was great AND cheap. Now it's great and almost as expensive as stuff from the US.

Are you serious? Those pickups and the '5 way-selector' just sound like different finger nails being scratched on a chalk board.

My vote would be Seymour Duncan and Dimarzio, depending on what sound you are looking for.

the V7/S1/V8 pickup array is the best IMO.


Ugh. NO! Baaaaaad! I can't wait until I get the V7 and S1 on my RG replaced with some Dimarzios. Breed and Solo Pro perhaps...hmmm....

I doubt that you will buy an Ibanez because of the pickups... Relatively simple, Ibanez have poor pickup quality and the stocks sound just standard and nothing special compared to the big companies, DiMarzio, SD, EMG etcs. Some are live-able thru a good amp / fx and some are just plain crap. Main point is, after choosing your guitar, just swap the pickups with a new one. Test it out at Bently thru the Roland Cube 30 which you are using now and hear the sound.

Yeah, i know tat actually, juz wanted to know which one of those pickups were better to deliver what i want since i cant test any Ibanez in my hometown simply because he doesnt have them.......Actually I'm startin to think of changing the pickups on my GRG270DX, the SZ is just a possibility..........
