Evertune bridge

Hi guys.

I am looking at buying a evertune bridge for my guitar but they have a Ibanez zero bridge in it and was wondering if it would fit in this space or what would be needed?

cheers

you can put a bit of wood to fill the cavity, then re-mount.

Will it need to be fixed and do you need to drill Ned holes?

well what you'd end up having to do is remove everything from the floyd, glue blocks of wood in the cavities, then fill them, sand lush, then refinish, then I don't know if evertunes need to have a route made for them, but you may have to route it, and it's pretty critical that you get it 25.5" from the nut, otherwise it'll never intonate right.

I think there are diagrams of the routing on the Evertune website, as well as diagrams with dimensions of the bridges, etc.

I personally can't see much point in plugging the cavity that the guitar has, re-routing, and refinishing the guitar just for (what is in my opinion) a really over-rated bridge. It could be done and make a great instrument, but it seems a huge amount of work for what you're getting as a result. I don't know how hard the actual installaton is, but I do know they can be an absolute pig to set up, just through the nature of how the bridge works .

I don't like Avenged Sevenfold anymore. I was 14 when I joined & the 6661 in the username seemed a great idea at the time. Sigh.

I do agree with carl, at the very least you should try it on a guitar that isn't your main guitar, if you screw it up then you'll have to repeat the plugging and try it again, if you're at least putting it in a cheap guitar you're not losing quite as much.
