Which hard-tail Ibanez guitar has similar RG470 features? My RG470 is letting me down again, in that the high E and B strings are not staying in tune. This is despite a really good setup by a very good tech, the one who gets $125 for a Floyd setup. I guess I should check the locking nut, given that these 2 strings share one of the 3 __________ s? So I guess I'll bring it to him again for a look. He gives a lot of his time in assessment and planning and answering questions.
He's aware of the shortcomings of my licensed Floyd, versus that of the RG570's Edge. He thought mine has life in it.
I don't know, maybe I'm just not attentive enough to enjoy a Floyd now. I'm lazy when it comes to troubleshooting, changing strings, and maintenance. Although I can afford to pay someone.
I find that I'm less and less willing to put time into setup of guitars, fx units, and gizmos. I enjoy simplicity. And maybe after playing Floyds since they came out, I'm ready to simplify by going with a fixed bridge. I would miss the whammy bar, because I use it a lot. But I miss my wah, which I've been leaving home. The absence of these elements does inspire alternative and creative approaches, which is cool.
And I suppose, I appear to be thinking in either/or terms, when I could add a fixed-tail guitar to my arsenal. And I could choose one or the other when I head to soundcheck. Or bring both.
Thank you for reading my thoughts -- I'd love to hear your feedback,
