Like I said, this guitar has a set bridge which is a string through on the body.
The saddles pins needed to be modified a little, because I had a setup on this guitar with a low action on the strings for this guitar.
Because of this the adjustment pins for the saddles were coming out of the top, that is why it needed a little modification on all 12 pins, where I needed to take of some 3 to 4 mm, so that they can't hurt my picking hand while I am playing.
This set up is really great now, with the lowest action on the neck possible.
All the hardware is deep black and stands out really great on the over all look of this guitar.
The volume and tone is no differed then any other Ibanez RG type guitar.
I think the only difference is in the tone knob, because it is directly wired to the 5-way switch, but I am not sure what the main reason is for this, but you can hear some other tone options on the pickups, that what I would have on an other guitar.
The pickups are mounted in the deep black pickups rings, which is maybe the reason of the deep sound of this guitar.
All the finish on the hardware, including the machine head tuners are Deep black.
