So new to starting threads. What I'd like to know is... Well I started playing an Epiphone SG G-310 and I want to upgrade to an Ibanez. The SG has a stop bar and I use it a lot for palm muting. I can't play an Ibanez without a Stopbar. I don't know what I should upgrade to...
I love Breakdowns!
I think you're actually using the tune-o-matic bridge instead of the stopbar tailpiece. If that's what you're looking for for palm muting, try an Ibanez Darkstone or one of their ARZ or ART series.
