What non POS trem would be a direct drop replacement for that??
Isn't that a newer version of the Lo TRS II? If so can't you drop an OE or something like that in there? I remember the Jem Jrs. having the same trem and OE was a direct drop replacement for modding...
Yeah I'm not nearly as schooled in the ways of ibanez as most members on this site, always been a gibson guy but looking to get something with a trem. Plus im in the states with a guitar center 4 miles away with one in stock.
I dont know what that particular bridge is, but IF it's a Lo-TRS II bridge, an OFR will drop right it, no modding required except maybe shims for the saddles because of the radius settings on the OFR vs an Ibanez neck. Other than that though, I'd say if you wanna put a little extra TLC into it and make it a gigging level guitar, go for it
Yeah I was tempted but theres an MIJ jackson kelly on local classifieds with duncans already. Less work to get it up too snuff
Or just wait for the New RG550/570s to be announced for the US
Can't help myself but the headstock doesn't even look that bad on a guitar.
Feels like they just cropped it a bit too much in this picture.
Found this on youtube:
not a fan of the shade of brown the necks/fretboards look like. Still miles better than the neon yellow "vintage" finished maple necks of Fenders.
I think roasted only works when its flamed mapple as the grain pops a lot
Thankfully, necks aren’t roasted for looks.
I like the look of roasted maple. Of the ones shown so far I like the Martin Miller version the best. Admittedly it looks more “fusion” than “metal”.
I think the roasted maple fretboard would look better if the headstock was painted to match the body color. That headstock in that video with the girl playing should be the same color as the guitar
I know they add better stability blah blah, but they do add a diferent color scheme to the guitar. Same reason why some people would choose another neck wood, for different sound/stabnility, but mostly because looks
we all like to see pretty things, so thats a reason why they do those things. Problem is that everyone likes different things, and for me Im not too much of a fan of this thing
They are going for a more "traditional" "vintage" "fender" look if you wish. And like I mention, this option of roasting the enck is miles better than using an aged lacker on maple that makes the neck yellow. Plus no-one is using roasted mapple on a production level, so its a selling point for them
I would usually agree with you in there, but because the whole neck is one material, I like it better for the headstock to be left like that. Like a one piece neck look.
Probably late to the game on this one but it looks like this may be new:
for moment I though they were RGA's. But still dang! thats an RG Prestige Id be happy to own. They also have a black swap ash with white pups and binding, looks sick, until you realize in the specs that the fretboard is rosewood and the guitar IRL wont have that dark board
Where guitar lines go to die......
I haven't seen these posted yet, they made say "whaaaaaat??" out loud
Also this August Burns Red signature has been released after many years although it's a standard model:
Ibanez RGius gothic
What are these called and where did you find them?
