View Full Version : thinkin of customizin my current guitar
10-01-2003, 09:57 PM
ive been thinkin lately that instead of muyin a new guitar i was just gonna customize my current guitar. i wanna use it mainly for rock, so i was thinkin of gettin 2 seymour duncan sh-6 distortion humbuckers, a buzzfeiten tunin system, and a floyd rose tremolo, but i think i already have one. i have a ibanez x-series, and the bridge looks like a floyd rose. however the tremolo doesnt work. does any one have any tips for me?

try to lift up the back of the bridge... if it doesnt budge its not a floyd rose. floyd roses also usually have that written on them somewhere.
cant really comment on the pickups but i think on the duncan website they have a section where you can listen to the pickups in use

10-02-2003, 12:50 PM

a buzz feitin is a tuning system that keeps your guitar is tune really freakin well. yeah my brige can be lifted up, im gonna go check if its floyd

if you check www.edroman.com it well tell you about the buzz feiten

are you sure it's not an S-series?if so, then yeah.you have a liscenced floyd, unless you have a brand new one which is just as good as a floyd.
10-02-2003, 05:11 PM
its not a s-eries, go too google and search ibanez x-series

go to active pickups, whether EMG or something else (or just go with emg, they rule!). its the best thing you can do for yourself. once you change to them you will never go back

well i want this guitar to be more for rock and strumming not for so much picking, since im gonna get a jazzmaster for that. so i want humbuckers. and my friend who has the set i told you guys about said they worked really well. ive never heard emg before so i dont know

Don't get two of the same pickups, you're limiting yourself. Get one of the Seymour Duncan pickups you mentioned if you like the tone. Then, go to the seymour duncan website and listen to the soundclips. The pearly gates and the alnico-pro II's are amazing.

i'm putting a pearly gates in my neck and a JB in my bridge.. i really loved that sound after listening to the clips :)
10-03-2003, 04:33 PM
yeah thats a good idea. but i thought the clips came on a cd?...
10-03-2003, 05:33 PM
Seymour duncan alnico pro II's are great and u can listen to the pickups on the site + floyd rose tremolo, It tells u on it if its one But there are many copies of floyd rose cause the complany let people use the name or something so the genuine floyd rose tremolo's are from germany I read that somewhere
