Brian Moore i9f anyone?

It's got a Mahogany body, figured top, HSH SD pickups, 24 frets, and a floyd trem. It's nearly everything I wanted in a guitar.

I've got a few questions, though. Is the trem an OFR? And is it recessed? And to those who have had experience with them, how different is the neck profile compared to a Wizard? And does it play sound/play ell?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Brian Moore i9f anyone?

I don't think it has an OFR judging from the pics on the Brian Moore website. Try e-mailing them.

André

Re: Brian Moore i9f anyone?

it's not a real floyd. it's basically a lo-trs 2 in gold. it is recessed, but with the angled route for the baseplate. good guitar, but for the money, i would get an rg3120. the i9f is cool, but the i1f is even better...neck through!

That's if you like neck-throughs. The hardtail models and the piezo/synth models seem o be a good bang for the buck. I wouldn't mind a nice i8p.

Re: Brian Moore i9f anyone?

buddy of mine has a i1p. killer axe...after a setup and quite a bit of work. the nuts on those things SUCK! very little strat type plastic nuts on what should be a les paul/acoustic type nut. i replaced his with a graphite nut. his bridge is the RMC passive piezo. the low e pickup on it was out so we had to order that. after reassembling the piezo would go out if you pulled up on the bar...trem was pinching the little coaxs therefore shorting the pickup. so now i have to route about 1/8-3/16" from underneath the trem in order to fix this. aside from these issues...it's a smokin @$$ axe. the duncans sound great...alnico2 pro, classic stack, and jb. coil taps for both hums. just not a fan of the electronics layout. i am a fan of the strat layout. which is why i love ibanez rgs.

Re: Brian Moore i9f anyone?

Saw a used one on e-b-a-y. If it's a lo trs style, then no thanks. So this is my dilemma, 570 or i9f? To me if the bridge isn't up to standard, I wouldn't consider buying unless I have the time and money to mod it.

Re: Brian Moore i9f anyone?

The trs model designation is Ibanez exclusively, AFAIK, Moore, I would assume, would use a higher grade than the trs version trems.
I've always wanted to try out a Moore for fun, they look like they'd be comfy to play.

Re: Brian Moore i9f anyone?

I realised the lo-trs designation is Ibanez, but I'm not too hot about cheaper licensed trems.

Re: Brian Moore i9f anyone?

The seller just contacted me and said that it is an OFR. Well, since I can't tell the difference between a Lo Trs and an Edge, I'll let you guys decide:

Re: Brian Moore i9f anyone?

Can't see much from here, but it does not look like an OFR to me, the baseplate seems to be too long and too wide, but I'm not too sure. If that's the case, it might still be a good deal, maybe the trem isn't too bad, and maybe you could just change it to an OFR down the line.

On the pic on their site it's definately not an OFR.

actually bamm, the lo-trs design is of takeuchi design. it's licensed to alot of manufacturers, most notably, ibanez and jackson. the jackson jt580jp and the lo-trs 2 are near identical...only thing different is the stamping. otherwise, identical. additionally, washburn and yamaha used the old takeuchi "original" style trem: the washburn 600s and the yamaha trs-101. the brian moore i series has the same lo-profile trem. no stamping, though. i know this because i have played several i9f's and i1f's. same trem for both models. not to say that an original floyd is not available for a brian moore, it is not typically an option of years past. currently, brian moore does offer the c series with an original floyd, but more piezos end up going out than locking trems. you pretty much bet that if it is korean, it isn't going to have a real floyd on it.

It isn't an OFR, the stamp saying Floyd Rose is missing.

The i1000 guitars are all made in Korea if I remember correctly and the i2000 are from China. The c90 are made in the US are essentially custom shop guitars and they are pricy. 3500 € for the one I wanted and that was without the 13 pin piezo.
