Re: Guitar with Evo 2 pickups?

I think that there was a thread about FLO's bridge pickup. There was a word that in FLO's bridge is now EVO's former pickup. So you think Flo has an Evolution? if you search the forums... I searched the forums and noticed that when Jeroen was making his Flo replica it had an Evo 2 pickup in the bri...

Guitar with Evo 2 pickups?

Which guitars does Steve use with an Evo 2 pickup installed? I was curious because I was getting one installed on my rg1570 and wanted to hear what it sounded like.

Re: I installed my Backboxes

I actually am about to have a couple of goldos installed into my rg1570. I had a few questions: 1. Did you find that other strings stayed in tune better when bending another (i.e. unison bends)? 2. Was there better overall tuning stability? 3. Is flutter completely eliminated? 4. Is it that much mo...

Re: Ibanez Backstops

Thanks Patill and Jeroen, I really appreciate the responses. I just had a few more questions though... For Jeroen: I thought the backstop stabilized the entire bridge, not just when it was pulled up, so I still don't understand how he is able to do unison bends (or play any other string in pitch wh...

Ibanez Backstops

I've been studying Vai's music for a little while now and I'm trying to figure out which of his guitar's have the Ibanez Backstop (tremsetter) in them. I know that Evo and some others of his do, but I've also read that his 7-string guitars do not. If that is the case, how is he able to do unison be...
