I've got an old ibanez destroyer im restoring, to which the Ibanez pro rocker bridge is totally trashed. Now...I didnt really like that tremolo system in the first place, and im thinking about converting it into a fixed bridge guitar. The stud spacing and size matches perfectly with that of a stoptail TOM, so thats the way im gonna go
I'm gonna cover up the gaping hole in the top of the guitar with a piece of black pickgaurd material, and I'm looking at all-in-one tune-o-matic bridge/stoptail OR wrap around bridges.
I've been looking at three in peticular, the Shaller 456 bridge w/ fine tuners (or the 455 w/o), the hipshot baby grand, and the tonepros wrap-around. Anybody have any experience with these, or any other units and have any suggestions?
Also, in order for the bridge to intonate correctly, i'm going to have to get a unit with (i dont know what they're really called, but: ) horizontal-adjustment screws. Ya know, the sort of thing where you can adjust how far back the bridge sits on its posts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
