usually those are replaced with a schaller, the gotoh is much larger.
Picture has a Gotoh Floyd, I'm not sure if it was a drop-in replacement or did he take it to a luthier to get the the post filled and redrilled. OFR-sized Floyd don't intonate properly on lower tuning using Schaller-sized post dimension IIRC.
Definitely sounds like an example of a more complicated and expensive fix that doesn't add much over the cheaper and less complicated solution. Guitarists are a weird bunch.
Not in Australia. The Schaller is twice the cost of the Gotoh here, and I'm pretty sure you can get the holes redrilled for less than the price difference.
Any links? Can't find the listing ,....
Next time remind them that a lot more good and meaningful music has been recorded on boring black Soloists than anything burl or blue and quilted.
seems like its modded, the route enlarged. wouldn't buy it blindly
I don't think the route is changed...it has the end of the trem where it meets the lower post overlapping the route. Looks like the original floyd route is intact and the larger gotoh is in its place. The gotoh bridge has the same post spacing but is slightly wider and that lower post edge sticks out instead of a rounded floyd. Look at the zoomed-in picture of the bridge placement and you'll see that the tremolo doesn't match the route.
it's not the width, it's the length that is routed larger, where the bolts end, you can see how wonky the route is there.
Ah, how things have changed from when this place had like 20K users.
Also, there is never, ever, anything old and boring about a black Soloist with binding and sharks. The word they're looking for is iconic.
I can kinda see what you mean. It looks like on the low E string lock screw is so far back it's been dinging the edge of the route. I guess I would request some closeup picks of that area or just ask if it's been rerouted.
thanks. good price as a side project... hmmm
Can someone help me with the model of this -96 Jackson. I'm about to pull the trigger on it and just for curiosity I'd like to know the full specs The seller has it listed as Jackson reverse dinky -96 (MIJ). Is that the official name of the model? Thanks in advance! Didn't want to start a new thread for this...
I had a NGD for this but I'll post it again. The guitar sounds great. I'm not sure what contributes to this sounding as clear as it does, bolt on construction, pickups, wood choice, but it's the first 7 string I've had I'm enjoying as much playing on the 7th string and the rest of the strings without constantly tweaking my amps.
He won't ship though, but it hasn't sold yet. Would've been a good roadtrip during the easter long weekend
yeah looks like a japan (the mark of the japan sticker on the neck bottom) Dinky.
it looks like it has a licenced FR and cheap pickups, doubt it's MIJ, but not sure.
The JS were made in Japan for a year or two, and the licensed Floyd is the JT-500, like on the Performers
I was planning to get a friend from Sydney to pick it up for me, but was too late. Seller was on his way to meet the buyer. Now sold. $400 AUD is definitely a good deal, even in its current condition.
