Ibanez Iron Label RGIR20FE...I have questions

#1 Post by BigBadMoFoGangsta » Fri Sep 06, 2013 11:47 pm

I have questions about this guitar. Here is a link to the product description of this guitar:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/ ... c=3GOA3BEB" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I hope its okay to post links in the forums. The description says something about EMG pickups early on in the description but then it goes on to mention Dimarzio pickups later on
.
"Road tested matched DiMarzio or EMG pickups." What does that sentence mean...exactly? Does this model guitar offer the choice of which pickups you want to come stock with the guitar?

And my other question is, what is a kill switch on a guitar? Never heard of that. What is the purpose of that?

The IRON LABEL series will come with dimarzio or EMG

that model you posted has EMGs

an EMG 81 and EMG 60

That's basically what Metallica and many others use.

A kill switch is a switch that is just an ON/OFF switch
On the guitarworks
OFF it kills the entire signal of the guitar...

its basically like on a les paul having one volume up and one volume down and moving the switch back and fourth really fast.
