Ibanez with Piezo

Does anyone have experiences with a Floyd Rose + Piezo on an Ibanez guitar?
Is it possible to install later?
Thanks,
marko

Re: Ibanez with Piezo

I have a double edge piezo system that I had installed in my Ibanez RG-8520LA (J-Custom; it was a good match because the old 8520's had 2vol/2tone config). It works really well, the only thing is that these, and other high end Ibanez guitars, have a tighter trem route. The double edge saddles are longer allowing only about 1mm of clearance between the body and trem.

Re: Ibanez with Piezo

Wouldn't you have to route out for a battery and extra wiring too?

The thought of my RG8670 with a double edge gives me wood.

Soloist,

How difficult was it to install the double edge wiring? I have a 2027 I need to refinish, but I'm afraid of screwing up the double edge wiring. Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks,
