I just got my first Ibanez! It's a 1996 SF420 made in Korea that will be a new project guitar.
It currently has a Wilkinson/Gotoh wraparound bridge that I wanted to replace with something else for this build. String spacing of the Wilkinson is 1-15/16" (49.21mm) and the...
This is the last of the non-pickguard Kingbolts - in Copper Fire.
- Railhammer Alnico Grande br & HV neck pickups
- TwoTone Teardrop included
- We put this together as a proto/test guitar for a shredder friend of ours- and we ended up going a different route with him.
NGD: second one this week alone.
It's one of those weird RGs with the wilkinson trem. Never really appeared on the catalogs, only found in northern europe.

I recently picked up an Ibanez EXR170. The bridge is in terrible condition and need replacing. However, it has rather peculiar measurements:
String spacing: 52mm
Stud spacing: 74mm
It's a non-locking tremolo system that looks like the ones you get on Gios. Most regular Gotoh, Wilkinson and...

Can someone give me a hint how to fix the tremolo arm on a Wilkinson/Gotoh VSV tremolo (6-hole)? There is something written about a screw in the manual, but I can't find it - the arm is simply moving up and down...

I have an AT-200 that I bought little short of two years ago. When I bought it, the previous owner had made some upgrades to it and had installed two DiMarzio Cruiser-pickups and a Wilkinson 5+1 vintage style trem. I've later installed an AT1-humbucker and the guitar is the pride and...
OK, I have $500 and I'm wanting to get a guitar with a decent trem. Never was a fan of Floyd style trems and lean more towards wilkinson tremolos. I've never been a tremelo player and all of my guitars are stop tail so I know nothing here. Anyone have any recommendations for good...
I'm about to overhaul my main guitar with a new neck pickup (PAF Pro), new wiring/switching, a Wilkinson VS100 Vibrato and some locking tuners... I'm curious as to everyone's experience with different tuners. What are yous guys' favorites? I'm leaning toward Sperzel, Schaller and Planet Waves...
