The Pickup Place / Re: Fred in neck w/Mo Joe in bridge on basswood RG550?

Will a Dimarzio with duel resonance  always get better harmonics than a model without?


No

PAF Pro has a little more character to my ears.

PAF Joe seems like a variant of it, but maybe a little more polite, if thatís the way to put it.

If you try the MoJoe in the neck, please let everyone know how it works for you.

Brian Wampler designed that, so it should be great.

Yeah, itís pretty much any one of a few things. And will take it being poked and prodded and so on.

If you use the tech regularly, it shouldnít be a big deal...outside of an inconvenience.

Did the tech you mention actually do the wiring?  If so, have you spoken to him about your experience!

if I understand the question correctly, you are asking if the route is squared?  or parallel/level/even with the guitar top?

mine is.

there have been many recess cavities with angled and with level.  so you could be overthinking it a bit.

you might do better hitting p a forum or a FB page the focuses more on Floyds.

you should also be able to google for the routing specs for a FR recess.  put those specs to play against what your have there to see if the basic route will handle the FR to begin with.  if it looks like you might need to route for that, you can address the angled issue at the same time.  I'd wait to have the FR in hand first, so you know how much (if any) routing might be needed.



I can't tell for sure which Washburn trem you have there.  I have a pretty old N2 with the Wasburn 600-S (?) that essentially a Takeuchi.  it's always worked great and never had any issues with it.  it might not have the "look" but it does deliver.

Was any routing necessary?

Schaller LockMeister same specs as OFR.

I prefer the German FR, and the German 1984 model if I have my way. Try to stick with the official FR upgrades if you want to keep the warranty in place. Plus, the official parts are sometimes more affordable.

However, the Schaller LockMeister is easily as good, if not better, than what they make for FR. I have 2 LockMeister terms and they have been rock solid. I have a LockMeister on my N24, that replaced the FR Special it came with. And then an official FR brass claw (just $10, screws included).

Iíll never touch another Gotoh. One started to wear at the knife edges, so I replaced it with a brand new one. Which started to show similar wear within a few hours. Others have had similar experiences.

Maybe I should reach out to the folks at DiMarzio for a test sample.


I hope they respond to your interest. They could use the promotion for this product.

Donít expect to be getting one, mainly because of the pricing. It doesnít come off as anything particularly new...the baby of this model and that model??...players that mod can already make that.

Plus, itís ANOTHER of the buy-it-this-way-only offerings. Players first went with aftermarket pups BECAUSE they wanted options.

I didn't find any diagrams that match what I have in the N24.

Hi everyone, I'm considering replacing the pickups in my N24. The stock Washburn neck pickup is not very good. Very dull sounding. I might give the L500XL in the bridge a bit more time before deciding if I want to replace it. But I definitely want to replace the neck pickup. This guitar is made of agathis wood.

Any suggestions?

I seem to remember that I put a Manlius T-Top replica in the neck of mine.

A possible fun option to pair with the L500 XL bridge is the Dean DMT Michael Batio HWS neck, which Batio says is modeled after his favorite Lawrence-era OBL neck pickup.
