Re: baswood 2550z OVERTONES - HELP

True - However - My statment is valid for IBZ's -

I've learned my harmonics as kid from DIME ..R.I.P , then I met Satriani (Not in person...damn it) SO .. I can dial singing harmonics squeals as dialing my Pizza order and I know when a guitar /amp cannot dial one.

2550 was an unexpected much pleasent suprise!!!

Harmonics like this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XROFYC7z5so

A lot of it is technique. I've heard people whack them out on a stock tele. The right pickups will help a bit, but the right technique will help more - I think. Hard to prove, but that's what I think.

Re: baswood 2550z OVERTONES - HELP

In short words they are quiter in sound level - but rich in tone+ sustain - maybe its my amp and my compression pedal doing the job also BUT its still rich in tone

I'm still playing with it dough - my favourite sound is with the single/neck

Steve Luke. neck with Evo bridge so ---- I guitar full of steve's

I'm sticking with Mo'Joe in neck and Super Distortion or Steve's Special in bridge


PS> Just Recieved The Guitar - 2550z with Maple Frets, Searched for it for quite some time now

Although the guitar has its Stock IBZ's .. I gotta be honest - the guitar is flawless -

I've spent the whole night searching for a *ding, mistakes in finish, tremolo, ...After lowering the Single pup and rising the others I manged to get hold of some sweat harmonics ...SO I'm satisfied the way it is ( for now)

Thank you All for your inputs -

ROCK ON!!!
BTW, how do the middle tones (the single/neck or single/bridge linked) sound? By lowering the middle, did they get softer?

I can hit a pinched harmonic dang near anyplace on the neck. Remember,you need a amp that reproduces harmonics well, as some amps are "closed up" more than others.....
Marshall. Kelly Simonz said yesterday at a marshall clinic that basically everyone stats on a marshall, changes to something else and always ends up coming back home. He called them "cheaters" LOL

Another combo to consider might be a Super Distortion/PAF Pro. That'll probably get you closer to what you're looking for than the MoJoe/PAFJoe setup.
Thanks for your input

The thing is I really want MoJoe in the neck jsut because its hotter than paf joe or paf pro, for the bridge I might consider Super Distortion - It is a pickup going around for decades....

baswood 2550z OVERTONES - HELP

Hello All,

I've read about 20 threads concerning pickup swap for a baswood body guitar.

Problem is - I only get to do this once - I'm geting a used galaxy white rg2550z half priced in mint condition BUT with stock IBZ..

Before you flame me how to use search tools in jemsite - I'll summerize my final decision:


My style of playing is mainly blues,prog.rock,all sort of roots of metal with satriani / vai /gilbert fusion. Lots of shredding (80's metal) - more fusion.
I use tremolo allot - actually I think I discovered the durabillity of EZII - 3.5 years of everyday use. That's as far as it goes.


So I need the playability and most of all=> harmonic overtones <=without sacrifising tone !!!!

decision :
1. paf pro / fred
I'm afraid this selction won't be enough when I pour in some metal gain
1.a mo'joe / steve's special ( my 1st favourite )

2. Liquifire / Crunch Lab

3. Air zone / Breed or Paf Pro Breed
( Actually Alaska sudgested evos and breed in many threads I've read)


I need harmonics , harmonics is what I need
