It should not be that expencive, I think they last like 3000 hours on one battery.

@Goliath- Just checked out the live wire pickups and they're getting killer reviews ( Especially the metal one). They sound even better for metal than the evo's. Thanks for the input cool.gif

As long as you don't leave your guitar plugged in when the amp is off then the battery life should last you for ages.

I have the Mustaine sig. Live Wires and I'd put them in just about any guitar. The neck pickup can be played cleanly beautifully. It pulls it off very well. If you don't mind dave Mustaine having his sig on it, that is. Hah, my DV8-R has Dave Mustaines sig on it 3 times (1 headstock, 2 pickups).

Hey chaps,

From what I gained reading the thread, Dimarzio are superior to IBZs. But is there an affordable Ibanez coming with DiMarzios which ISNT a gem (I said affordable tongue.gif)? Can't find one, they're all IBZ, V7~, etc

Hey guys, I've posted before about getting a new guitar - but the money is finally accumulating and looking like it might happen (assuming my Epi Korina Flying V sells on eBay).

It's it's going to be Ibanez or a new 2008 Dean.

Quick question, I want a Ibanez prestige model, they seem to have suprerior craftsmenship...however some come with IBZ pickups and some with DiMarzios...are the Dimarizios worth the extra cash?


mmm sexy: http://www.zzounds.com/item--IBARG2570E



After looking on the Ibanez Website again to make sure what I'm going to say is the truth here goes:

Ibanex makes three kinds of guitars: Guitars with Ibanez Pickups, guitars with what they call Dmz/Ibz or Dimarzio/Ibanez pickups and guitars with Dimarzio pickups.

Now you can get an RG prestige with Ibanez pickups (the RG1527,RG1570,RG550MXX), You can get an RG prestige with EMG pickups (RG2228) and Dimarzio/Ibanez Pickups (RGT320Q, RG2550E, RGT220A) and even Seymour Duncan pickups (RG2610e).

It all depends on the models number of the pickups, some Ibanez pickups are S1, S8 and V2 to mention a few. Some prefer EMG's over regualr pickups etc.. I guess what you really need to do is go down to your local Ibanez dealer (the only place where they will most likely have the widest variety of guitars by Ibanez to play) and make up your own mind.

I own the RG1570 and I'm very happy with it. It may lack in some sound/tone compared to an Ibanez with the Dmz/Ibz pups, but from my experience I couldn't tell and if it meant the slight difference and the difference between staring at the 2550e and my 1570 I'd choose the 1570 all over again. IMHO the 2550e is one of the ugliest guitars made by Ibanez. I understand what they were trying to do with the kind of paint they used but did they really think it was a good looking guitar before they put it into production?

You wish.

Yep. I have actives on my parker, they last roughly three months or so. So I usually change battery when I change strings (elixirs).
