I have an Ibanez Rg: basswood body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard, 24 frets and floating trem, her tone is sharp with some sparkle and is a bit weak and thin -i´m using a 59'model set and it doesn´t goes well with my gear and my likes. I play from bluesy tones to hard rock ones and sometimes go over the top.
I want to enhance the bright part of her tone to make the sound a screamer one but with a fine touch when needed -the idea is take the guitar´s character to work with but counteract the weak/thin aspect- while fatten and increasing the output a bit to give her tone some authority. A fatter sound -but not too much- preserving chime/bright is in mind.
I´m looking a very close to paf but a bit rounder overall sound, with a litte beefier -fat but solid- bass response wit a rich low end.-knowing the limits of the RG design- Cleaner in the neck position.
I´m not after a lot of output, tone is the most important thing, just needing a little more. I´m wondering between the pearly gates bridge, sh-2 bridge or Alnico II pro bridge for neck and tb-5, tb-15, tb-4 or tb-12 for bridge, just to say something . I only use a volume control.
