We Also Build Replacement Gibson & PRS Bodies Right Here in Ed Roman's Custom Shop
|A Custom made Korina Tonewood body made to retrofit on Albert May's Ibanez
Petrucci Guitar. When Albert rebuilt his Petrucci Guitar, he used his original
neck and my shop made him this wonderfully resonant Korina body. The tonal
difference was so incredible that a even a beginner could immediately hear the
Notice the step routed pickup cavity. This allows the replacement pickups to mount directly to the body instead of floating on springs. This factor makes the pickups and guitar resonate together. More gain before feedback and significantly clearer highs and tighter lows.
We compared the original Dimarzio Pickups (Stock) against the Seymour Duncan Black/Backs TM We were astounded by the difference. The Dimarzio's distorted horribly on the low end compared to the Duncans.
The other comparison of note was the Tremolo. We compared the Ibanez white metal Tremolo against the Original Floyd Rose. The tonal difference was again immediately apparent. The Original Floyd Rose is made to extremely close tolerances. The steel is hardened to 60 Rockwell. Not only did the guitar hold tune better, it sounded better. The original Floyd was much more responsive than the Ibanez.
Because I build so many replacement necks
I always have new or used original Ibanez, BC Rich, ESP & Jackson necks on hand.
