RG560s, and RG760s are big bargins. The HSS pickup set up gets those guitars little respect. --Jason

I recently sold a RG760FM that would have been right up your alley. Trans flames, offset dots, H/S/S. See if you can find one of those from 2002 I believe it was.

Re: High quality HSS with floyd ;o)

Plus it's commonly thought that Lo-pro's and Edge trems are superior to Floyds. Having lots of guitars with both, I tend to agree....

Yeah...that´s the truth

But strange from a company with so many models and changing model names etc.

Re: High quality HSS with floyd ;o)

Just a thought..

THeres no difference between putting a sustainer in a H S H to putting a single coil in a H S H. Just fill the slot with a blank or a dummy single.

Edge and Lo-pro's are licensed floyds... just like the vast majority of what refered to as 'floyds' out there. it's not like he said OFR.
