When did this Floyd arm ever come on a PGM? :)

I don't really see why he would think it was from a PGM.

That's the arm for the Lo-TRS on the PGM30. Mine has one of those.

Sorry but a 30 with Lo-TRS doesn't count as a PGM. :twisted:

It looks like it's one of those vintage style trems.
Wonder if the springs are still in the guitar that way. It would be
easier than filling all the wood in i guess.

basically where the route is for the floyd it is filled in with some sort of wood with the bridge bolted onto it. its is now theoretically set up like a standard strat, the springs are still attatched. however bridge seems pretty permenatly fixed, so no tremolo action. and rather than try match the paint the guy who did it (my buddy's dad who is a luthier) put a mirror pickguard over the block. the whole thing is totally reversable.

let me tell you, this thing fucking smokes. the lo trs2 sucks pretty big testicals, now i feel like i have a real guitar. the first thing i did was chuck 11's on it, which are way more comfortable for my vibrato. just need to get my legato playing a bit stronger. i also want to lower the action a little, i thought the neck had bowed a bit with the heavier strings, but i think im just noticing how high it has always been.

next im going to replace the pickups (not sure what to load it with yet, probably paf pros, maybe a paf pro and a tonezone), and then replace the tuners, they seem to slip a bit now the nut isnt locked. plus i think its about time for a white dimarzio locking strap.




on another side note, for ages now i wanted another rg type guitar for the collection, and the other day i found a 550 already loaded with dimarzios going pretty cheap in the newspaper. i called the guy up and he came to my house so i could try it out, and after playing it for about 15min i picked up the pgm as a comparison. let me tell you, my pgm shat all over this 550, in feel and tone (even tho my pgm has the stock infinity pickups). ive totally gone off wanting more guitars for the time being, now i just want to make my pgm even slicker.
