Re: New member and new project
Hey, thanks for your reply! Unfortunately, EVERYTHING got painted over, including the tops of the old trem inserts. Until I started drilling for the new inserts, I thought the old ones were already out! To my surprise, I started drilling metal instead of basswood, which is what I assume this is. The finish is really well done, though. I'm completely new to Ibanez, so I'm really unfamiliar with what I'm looking at, though I'm no stranger to building guitars and wood work. I'm taking a crash course on Floyds, lock nuts and Dimarzios at the moment!
