    Cool... until you see the price: Retail: $259 (naval brass), $269 (titanium) Are we getting insane here? I know its a niche market but prices on these things are getting out of hand.. how MUCH BETTER tone/stability etc will you get from a 20-30 dollar/euros Gotoh one?? I know some will buy...

    But he has gigantic brass balls. :eek: I didn't realize he did all his own stunts here.

    Ibanez® Style : Ibanez® EDGE Z Brass Tremolo Block It's a little late to the party considering that Ibanez just recently phased out the ZPS system but it's a good option nonetheless. Especially considering how tiny the stock zinc block is.
  4. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    This guitar was featured in the book, Ibanez: The Untold Story. Built in 1979 for the NAMM show, and to prove a point: Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Even with the active EQ, the tone is harsh and metallic. (Duh!) But the sustain is incredible. Oh, and it weighs 76 lbs. It's...

    Hi guys, I've been writing some stuff recently which largely involves fusing metal/rock with brass/RnB/Randomness. But to help me bring these ideas to fruition I need other musicians. Specifically guitar and bass players with heavy and complex leanings. I'm actually a drummer but I've been...
  6. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'm currently pondering fitting a big brass block to my alder RG. Any suggestions for where best to buy, remembering that I'm in the UK? I'd also like to stick a tremol-no on that guitar since I love the one on my other guitar. Anyone got any experience or recommendations for this? Do I need...

    My rather inexpensive but quite fun Vintage V6 Filmore strat works really nice, except I could use a Bit more sustain on the low strings when playing close to the body. It sports a classic Wilkinson bridge with bend metal shrapnel saddles, zinc toneblock and 6-hole mount (pretty much like a...

    My big brass term block just turn up for my geetar. Going to fit it later and will report back later... Last one I fitted to my other Ibby made a real difference to the sound. So time to get the tools out. The guitar ready for the transplant, and the new block..

    I've been doing some reading on these and cant seem to find any definitive information on what the actual changes are other than increased sustain... the key part that I want to know is will it dull/brighten the sound how is low end affected. Also does it affect the amount you can pull up as...

    WIMPY WIMPY WIMPY HEFTY HEFTY HEFTY Clips! Only difference between the two is new strings and the new block. The second one (with the new block) doesn't sound as good as it could--I kept the settings on my amp modeler the same for this to be at least somewhat scientific. There is a...

    Got a huge bell brass "L" shaped block on my OFR. Its a great piece but I want to go back to the stock brass block from an OFR since it's made my guitar a bit too bright. Looking for the stock 32mm OFR Brass block + $

  17. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    OK so to follow up on what Dave said in the Gotoh Floyd thread. What's the general consensus with floydupgrade's brass blocks, and the others I'm seeing on EBay (including one for the Wilkinson VS100). An essential upgrade?
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I thinking about putting a Brass nut on my Texan 7, but i've never used a brass nut before. How are they attached to the body? I wouldn't think that the standard glue used for nuts would work. I found one on All Parts thats for "Guitar or Bass" for $10 that is 11/16" x 1/8" x 3/16" . I am...
