Post Question for anyone who's played one of Paul or Bruce's axes
I know some of you have purchased and/or played guitars that Paul and Bruce owned.

How did they have them set up? What was their action like? Just curious...

I have a PG clinic and he says one his favorite things about the ibanez guitars he plays is they are VERY easy to play. By hearing that I assume he doesn't have really high action, and it's probably pretty low.

I know guys like Lane would have the strings as close as they possible could get to the fretboard without buzzing.

hi guys
i got the BC RICH MOCKINGBIRD (see pic on left!)and noticed the following (bearing in mind it had flown from hot las vegas to wet miserable uk)
1-action was pretty low
2-had 9's on it
3-PG picks hard (neck pu cover has gouges in it under every string!)see picture for foil and wear on bridge side edge of neck single coil

4-bridge pickup set very close to strings
5-fretwire is pretty narrow compared to most ibanez
6-neck pu wrapped in screening foil!
7-i'm a lucky bastard!Image

I own two of Paul's old guitars, and I have the Bruce Bouillet prototype guitar as well. The set-ups to me seem fairly standard. To me, the thing that sets these guitars from any other is......the PICKUPS!!!! I don't know if the pickups are hand wound, or what but they sound AMAZING. I used both of Paul's guitars on my cd, and the sound they produce is incredible.

it could be because they are wired parrallel as opposed to series like most humbuckers? (assuming its one of the guitars that was wired that way)

I read somwhere he used to use a superdistortion wired in parallel

My PGM from the factory from Paul was wired differently as well. Not sure what, or how they do it....the sound is clearly different than the stock PGM.
