EDIT Title: Upgrade guitar parts.... your opinions please !!! << Silly "t" instead of "d"
Hello everyone !
Well, I am thinking of upgrading some parts of my RG370DX.. I know anyone will tell me to get another one, but IMHO, I guess that I can make this guitar alive with some changes
First of all.. I decided to change both Neck and Bridge pickups plus the Tremolo as well.
So, I've finally decided on Dimarzio D-Activator X in the bridge as I need the closest passive pickup to EMG sound. I liked the X2N too, but I found that it is somehow more treble than the D-Activator X.
For the neck pup, I am confused a bit. Some people told me to get the D-Activator X (neck version) to match the bridge as a set. While others told me that the D-Activator (The pole pieces version) will be better. The problem that I can't get my hand on a guitar that has D-Activator X installed in it. I liked the D-Activator very much, but I can't compare it to D-Activator X due to lack of the knowledge of how it sounds.
So can you share your opinions and experiences about both of them ?
For the Tremolo, I liked the EDGE 3 Tremolo. It wasn't that bad of how people were describing it. It just need a good setup. It wasn't getting out of tune too. I am using it for 2 years without any wear outs. But it lacked the nice tremolo effect; the fluttering. The best one I found in flutter effect is the Floyd Rose. Fortunately, it seems that it fits in the EDGE III cavity, but how it operates ? Does it work like it was installed by the manufacturer or I will face some problems. - It will be installed by a technician -
Or it just fits but doesn't work at all.. I am talking about the OFR kit, not the licensed FR.
Thank you guys.
