The tube pole-piece construction of the new pickups designed for the Ibanez Darkstone offers quick response, sparkling clarity and added harmonics for a humbucker sound.
At the same time, humbucker-sized single-coil pickups were also introduced in the Darkstone series, the HS1 pickups (as found on the DN400).
[They] produce loud and crunchy tones that cut through for hard rock and punk styles.
Bridge version of the CAP-PP1, see above.
High output pickup designed for down-tuning. Introduced in 2011 with the RGD series (see RGD320). They are sometimes called VK1-DT (Down Tune) in the catalogs (his pickup series shares a connection with the VK1 & VK2 pickups of the former Arondite series, featuring neck blade humbuckers as well). 7-string version also available.
These pickups are designed to increase reverberation on lower tones, making them excellent for down tuning.
RG Premium guitars produce the tone of great diversity, from pure clean to aggressive distortion sound with newly developed pickups, CAP-VM1, VM1S and VM2 which work in great combination that enables such versatile characters. Also, minimum sound loss by adopting Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) coil.
