sinner16 Posted April 6, 2004 Report Share Posted April 6, 2004 Ok guys ... I've been pondering this for the past few days .. and I need a little outside advise. For some strange twist of fate .. I got my hands on a Jackson PS2 Performer S/S/H. Now I know that it's not a Custom Shop ax... nor will it ever be. But since I'm the type that hardly parts w/ any guitar .... I thought I might throw some $$ at it and see if it can be a well playing ax. Here's my dilemma: 1. It does have a Jackson Floyd copy on it as we speak. After looking close at the bridge, I found that the square blocks in the saddles were gone. Basically, someone installed the ball end of the strings in the saddle and locked it in with the tip of the bolt. I'm sure this was not Floyd /Jackson's intention. Does anyone think this caused damage to the saddles or bolt? With a saddle removed, I threaded the bolt into the back end of the saddle. There was a lot of play and movement of the bolt. It didn't feel tight at all. 2. Should I scrap the Jackson unit and start over w/ a Licensed Floyd? Dimensionally it should fit without too much trouble. 3. What are the tell-tale signs that a Floyd is worn out or the saddles need to be replaced ? And what would be the best bang for the $$$ be. 4. Also... the guy who had it before me must have been a dive bomber with the bar. There was 5 springs mounted to the 'block". Is it me ..or does 5 springs seem a little stiff? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
