He's been using hardtails for years. In pictures of his PGM 300 and other guitars that come stock with trems you can see where a block of wood was put in to mount the bridge.

I read somehwere he said that when he used to tour he didn't have a guitar tech and the hardtails were much easier to maintain.

When he needed to have a trem to record a few years ago he had Ibanez send him a stock PGM 30 to do his solos with.

I think the main reason the PGM 300, and 30 had trems is because Ibanez wanted them to have trems. If you look at his other signature models most of them don't have floyd rose bridges.

I'm going to say he went to the hardtails around 1991? I'd say that's in the ballpark. (+ or - a year) --Jason

^I don't know how it can't work, it should... Just hold alt and (use numpad) those characters.

It's just ascii code.
