LR Baggs X-bridge - Fixed bridge

Which kind of Fixed bridge is that?

I found that there is a Fixed bridge model on there price list but I can't find any picture of it!

I am thinking of putting 1 on my PGM90, will that output jack fit?
Is it ok for not connect the piezo pickup with a volume control (so the volume will be always max, right?) since i don't wanna drill a hole on my PGM.......

is the outpack jack on the PGM90 (and also other Japan made Ibanez) a Stereo jack?

You should be able to replace your PGM's jack with a stereo jack and then use an external preamp and switching system to send the piezo signal to a separate amp. As long as the barrel-type stereo jack has the same diameter as the PGM's stock jack (which is mono), you should be fine.

Personally, i'd find it really awkward to not have on-board controls for it, but that's just me.

I haven't been able to find pics of the fixed L.R. Baggs X-bridge... have you tried e-mailing them to see what they say?

One other option is to just replace the saddles with something like GraphTech's FAAS system, though you'd still probably have to punch a hole somewhere under the bridge to wire it all up.

Interesting to see that Fishman's only fixed bridges are either a tune-o-matic style or a Tele bridge. No fixed Strat-style bridge, which strikes me as odd. Nice to see, though, that they're finally offering the Wilkinson bridge with their outstanding piezos in it.

I don't believe anyone currently makes a stereo barrel jack. *Here's another discussion thread where this was being discussed with regards to my RG2027 guitar.

Maybe Kevan can provide yet another update???

Good Luck,

Randy

No- the jack will NOT fit your PGM, or any RG-based guitar, without some heavy-duty routing. *Sorry.

I'm still trying to get my jack out to the public. *It's taking longer than I originally thought.

Patience, young Jedi. *(that's what they keep telling me. LOL)

Nope. *
That's the jack you currently have in there. *:-) *
If you have a Double Edge-equipped guitar, you have two of those.

Mine is a little different...well, actually A LOT different. *

Would this 1/4" three-conductor jack not do the trick?

(Switchcraft part number 152B)

Isn't that all stereo jacks work with the LR Baggs X-bridges?

Look...here's the problem:
No one makes a *switching* jack that fits Ibanez/ES:P/Jacks*n guitars.
Stereo jacks aren't going to cut it. *You need one that switches the piezo on and off.

That's what I've been working on. *
...and it's turning into a Kev-Only project (instead of selling it to Ibanez or Neutrik or whomever).

I'll be sure to put up a HUGE post when they become available.

what about.......this 1?

http://www.wdmusicproducts.com/Merch...gory_Code=JCKS

it said (can also be used for switching applications)

I'm no good at electronic, is that possible to wire the piezo without volume control (don't wanna drill a hole on my PGM) and change a Pull/push volume pot to switch between Mag/Piezo?
