    After selling a JS2480 a year or so ago, I was itching to try a sustainiac guitar again, toyed with the idea of putting on in an RG550 Genesis but took the lazy option and ended up going for a Schecter Sunvalley FS S, surprisingly good build quality for the money and lovely to play. The...
  2. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Anyone on here managed to fit a Sustainiac in an RG550 Genesis, without resorting to routing out the control cavity? Just reading the installation manual for the Sustainiac and it states that the more recent Jems now come equipped with a wider 5 way switch, which prevents the installation of...

    Really like my JS 2410 and the way the Satch Track reacts. But I would really like a Sustainiac in it. I've seen Joe play orange JS with Sustainiac in neck This probably sounds crazy but was wondering the feasibility of having a Luther route and install a Sustainiac and bump the Satch Track an...

    JS 2480 Questions I have a Shecter CR Elite with a Sustainiac, it's paired with a Fishman Fluence active pickup and wondering if the JS 2480 behaves similarly. In neck position with the Sustainiac off the sound is fairly lifeless, dull, with decreased volume. The coil split on the neck...

    After having a new 2480 fail testing because of constant feedback in Harmonic mode, with no signal, Mike from HUSA to the rescue again. There are 3 adjustments on the PCB to control the Harmonic mode gain, Sustainer gain, and Neck P/U Volume. The Harmonic gain was dialed up to high, I backed...

    Hey all, Silly question, but ... Just curious if there is a difference between the Fernadez sustainer Vai uses versus the Sustainiac I have in my JS2450 Are they basically the same and should I be able to do Whispering a Prayer with a sustainiac?

    Looking for tips, advice, suggestions regarding installing a sustainiac/fernandes 401 on a JEM 70v SFG. I have a fernandes revolver with FSK401 but i'd like to have it on a JEM instead. I could also drop that idea and just buy a sustainiac for a fresh installment. Any comments will be...

    Hey all, just curious if anyone knows the answer to this. I am going to be buying a JS2450 this week and will be getting a Sustainiac installed in it. I've noticed on Joes guitars with the pickup he has only 1 toggle switch. On other guitars (non Joe) I've noticed 2 Toggles, one to turn the...

    Anybody have a spare from a failed project they're tired of looking at? Try one and feel like it's not for you? I'd prefer a humbucker version (if Fernandes). Will negotiate price based on quality, but ideally looking to spend $150 or so. Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I own a RG2550z GW that has a "Smoked Mirror" Pickguard and am currently about to install a Sustainiac into the guitar, on the Sustaniac page it lists that the Sustainiac should not be mounted onto a aluminized pickguard, so I'm wondering, is the "Smoked Mirror" Pickguard aluminized or...

    Hey all, Looking for any lefty guitar with both a double-locking trem and some sort of sustainer. Schecter has the Syn custom, but I'm not big enough an Avenged Sevenfold fan (nor really one at all) to justify spending that kind of money on an artist model for literally one reason: infinite...

    Am I Seeing things... JS2410 Joe on Tour I'm following Joe's Facebook posts and am seeing photos of the tour as it progresses. I've noticed now in some of the photos the JS2410 he's using doesn't have the satch/protrack pickup and an extra switch on the body. Did he have a sustainiac pickup...

    Hey everyone--quick question here... I've got a JS100 (yeah I know, flame away) but it has the upgraded Joe/Fred combo so it does okay for what I need. But what I REALLY love is that thin, rounded body shape. So I'm Jonesing big time for another guitar. My Jackson experiment was a failure...
