I'm thinking of cross breeding a Distortion and an Invader that I have. I love the clarity of the DD, but it is a bit trebly in my maple top Ibanez. I also love the thickness of the Invader, but it is not as articulate as the DD.
Also, the DD is not a trembucker, which I'm pretty sure I need, since the neck is pretty damn wide (43mm nut, 58mm last fret). I'm thinking of replacing the DD pole pieces with the Invader hex bolts. I figure this will take care of the improper string spacing, while at the same time cutting the highs a bit.
I'm not entirely sure I should do this though, what do you guys think? Anyone have experience with this sort of thing?
Will this work? Is this recommended? How do I remove the slugs from the DD? Will the hex bolts fit alright in the DD?
Also, should I do the opposite (keep the Invader in and change the hex bolts to regular pole pieces)?
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
