Re: Trem replacement options 440sII
Well I took apart the saddles and cleaned everything up...trem looks 100% better. Did play with the posts and it moved it down quite a bit. Going to have my tech do a full set up/intonation on it though.
Also, (am going to get killed by the Ibanez community), I am replacing the pickups with lipsticks. Humbucker and 2 singles...going to coil tap the humbucker. I love the feel of Ibanez guitars, but want that lipstick strat sound..so going to try it with this one.
Black GFS lipsticks (as they were out of the chrome neck and middle)..since guitar is black and stock pickups were black (and I didn't want to wait for whenever the chromes came back in stock), pulled the trigger today.
So hopefully get the pickups next week and a week or so for tech/install/setup work..in a couple weeks will have my "dream" lipstick guitar.
