Bagay nga yang Gotoh sa RG1570,  Gotoh din kasi nag manufacture ng Edge Pro, Lo Pro and the Original Edge..

Sir may locking studs ang Gotoh diba?? Nice!!! Very stable daw yan!!

Post ka pa ng picture niyang RG1570 mo ang ganda ng dating!!!


IMHO

Mas bagay sa mga RG ang Gotoh because of its similarity to the Orginal Edge!!

Parang RG570 Reissue ang dating!!!

I will ask Jon of Guitar one kung magkano over all kasama na routing work.... anyway almost any other replacement will need routing work kahit Lo Pro or original Edge..

I know mas maganda ang Gotoh because of the locking studs and I think the sustain block is better..

But I am such a Ibanez fan boy I want to replace mine with the same Edge pro but since its discontinued I might look for a Gloss Black Edge or Lo pro..

I don't like the esthetics of the cosmo black hardware on a black guitar body I prefer true gloss black..  And it seems mas mabilis mag corrode and tarnish ang Cosmo black saakin
pasmado kasi ako kahit anung Punas at wala after 3 years.. Ganito na!!


Pero yung mga pipitsugin na single locking Floyd type ko sa RG220 ko kahit 15 years na mahigit hindi parin na babakbak kahit na napabayaan yung bridge... nalubog pa sa baha yun!!


Sobrang mapili ako sa gitara at napaka arte ko.....  hayz buhay talaga hirap makuntento..


I painted the Edge pro on my RG1570 yung base plate lang naman not so much for esthetics para lang wag kalawangin madungis kasi ako!!!! Hahahaha..



Siguro if ever na masira yung bridge nung saa akin Gotoh ipapalit ko mostlikely kasi mahirap mag hanap ng Lo pro and Original Edge.. Lalo na Edge pro!!!!

Ano oppinion ninyo sir sa Edge Zero yung mga nasa Prestige and what about Edge Zero 2 hindi ko pa nasusubukan yung mga yun but I don't the appearance!!!

Hayzz ang arte ko talaga....
hahaha

Swabe ang edge zero. Nuff said.

How hard is it to find a good condition 550 in PI? And what's the price range?

Ah okay thanks..

I heard a lot of good reviews about Mike Sis.. so Might drop by at his shop one of this days as I am eyeing a Gotoh replacement for the Edge Pro as I heard the Gotoh is the best
Trem system there is..

1.Very stable
2.Knife Edges very durable.
3.has good sustain block
4.The Arm torque adjustment is the best in the industry.

I love the Edge and their variants like Lo Pro or Edge Pro.

But one thing that bugs is the Tremolo arm gets lose so fast that you have to fabricate your own solutions like Teflon tape Nail Polish or plastic bags to tighten it!

Take me as I am!!

So, for the Original Edge, what is the best DIY solution for the trem arm being loose? Best meaning long lasting.

Hi, please help me choose which Ibanez guitar should i buy.
I'm choosing between RG3250MZ or RG2550Z?

One is maple neck and the other is rose wood, are they the same in sustaining the notes?

I was so confused with the difference of their neck material and thickness.
How was the playing with 17mm neck thickness compared to 18mm?

I owned a Yamaha RGX-612 before and i really loved its thick neck and rosewood fingerboard, just not the body so i sold it.

Hi bro. The 2550 changed the neck profile to Wizard HP Prestige from since 2010. Prior to that naka Wizard Prestige lang which is a bit thicker. If the 2550 is a 2010 onwards model, same lang sila neck profile ni 3250.

Yung Wizard HP neck, manipis talaga. Pero comfy siya tugtugin. Out of the two, I'd choose the 3520 because of the KTS Titanium Reinforcements sa neck.

I've been playing my 6string Iron Label with EMGs for quite a long time now na nasideline yung RGA32 ko. I got so used to how the IL sounds that when I played the RGA, it sounded meh. I was guessing because stock pickups are just really that bad. Now I'm gassing for a pickup upgrade.  :idea:

I thought it's easy to get a good sound with EMGs compared to other pickups. Mas matagal ako nag tweak kapag ibang gitara gamit ko. I'm in the same situation as you, don't know if I should bother swapping magnets of V7/V8 or upgrade it. Hmmm.

Whay year model is that RG550? Damn those are rare nowadays

You also mentioned Pickups are the Tone Zones and Airnortons brighter than V7s and V8s  or are their warmer.

I think others burn their Plastic bushings a bit but I haven't tried that with my Edge Pro arm. I am not sure if that is long lasting.

As for me I use the plastic bag trick maybe Ibanez should just adopt the Gotoh since Original Edge to Edge Pro are made by Gotoh anyways

This is from 2001. I got lucky with this one. I saw it online GC used section, bit the bullet after hesitation and glad it worked out. It looks unplayed when I got it.

Tone Zone and Air Norton are in my 7string guitar, they're a bit brighter maybe because of ceramic magnets. I used to have normal Tone Zone set and I remember it having a bit more nasally sound compared to the 7 string version, which is what I liked more. Not sure if that' what you will consider warmer. I also just realized I don't like too much bass coming from pickups, but Tone Zone does sound big if you're looking for that sound.

V7 and V8 are "ok" pickups. Too much bass at times, not enough punch and mids but can still sound good if you play with the amp settings. If you want bright pickups, this is not what  I would recommend.

Hey thanks for the inputs.

I don't like bright sounding pickups.. I am looking for something warmer than the V7s and V8s. I already have V7 and V8 on my RG1570 I feel I need a more warmer sound.

You'll want a middy pickup set then, but I'll stay away from Tone Zone. 36th Paf set might be the sound you're looking for.
