    Yeah, I think he runs a lot. He gave up drinking a while ago, at least for a period, don't know if it was permanent.
    He sure can play, he gets better every time I see him.

    As an Alexi fanboi, I had my springs in this arrangement for many years. You don't notice much difference from the standard position. Only the fluttering is a little tighter. Just try it out. [​IMG]

    I've tried a bunch of different spring setups and never noticed a difference between any. I keep all mine parallel to keep them from popping out, but otherwise 'feel' seems more related to number of springs and/or string tension (tuning/gauge) than spring position or direction. At the end of the day, the springs have to provide the same amount of tension/force regardless of all that.

    They say it makes the pull slower and the push/release faster, but as Arcane said I've too always used this way on my Floyd so I don't have experience with other styles to compare.

    My RR24 came with 3 springs, but not like the Alexi set up. I tried the Alexi way and really didn't care for it. The tension just felt off to me. Almost too easy to flutter. Maybe I'll try it again since I am much better setting up guitars now, than I was back when I tried it like Alexi.

    I use 4 springs on all my Floyd equipped guitars and find it to be much more stable when palm muting with a heavy hand and because it has more tension, it returns to position faster than with less springs.

    Another thing I can't recommend enough to people.....add a big brass block to your Floyd Rose....it makes a HUGE difference in tone and sustain. All my Floyd guitars have one of those in them too. Such a huge improvement for such little money.

    Gotta try the spring setup though. Never heard about it being a thing until just now.

    That's because there were two versions of this Custom Shop finish, either a "decal version" or an "air-brush version". That 11K€ price tag was for the air-brush version for sure.
    Don't know the amount of work it requires to paint it air-brush like but it must a be a ton given the price!

    Quick question: What is the difference between an EMG HZ pickup and a normal EMG pickup?
    I don't know where to put my money right now and wanted to try the HZ-FH2, but it's either totally overpriced or not available. EMG and THomann also only carry the normal F-H2 (without HZ). There is also the HZ H4 and the normal H4. Any ideas? Higher output?

    Weird....I just looked on the EMG site and they are all just listed as H2 or H4, no HZ in front of them.

    EMG calls it a H2, but if you change the cover color to Black, it shows EMG HZ on the logo, so assuming they are the same. E-mail EMG and ask, they have always responded pretty quick to me with any questions.

    https://www.emgpickups.com/guitar/humbucking/h2.html

    I wonder if they just dropped the whole HZ thing for marketing purposes?

    I imagine that since HZ weren't well received they just dropped the HZ designation.

    Called them and they said its just some aesthetic thing. Its the same pickup but it looks clearer without the hz

    So, anyone with a J-50BC, maybe you can help me out.

    I finally found one and it comes with the cover, but I have read some threads talking about it not fitting into the guitar.

    Anyone have this issue? If so, is it only an issue if the cover has raised lettering, or is it an issue with the raised lettering cover and the non raised logo covers? Some stuff I am reading makes it seem they are different sizes, but I have no idea.

    Wanting to put it in my RR24, but wondering if I am going to have to do it without the cover, or modify the guitar to make it fit with the pickup cover.

    Any insight would be much appreciated.

    I had one in a RR24M a few years ago. The guitar tech who installed it and a JE-1000 clone said the pickup doesn't fit in the stock pickup ring with the cover on. It seems that Jackson had their own pickup rings for their old pickups, but someone else can correct me if I'm wrong.

    -AnzzA- was pretty much spot on. The older Jackson pickup covers with the raised logo are oversized compared to normal pickup covers used today. Every guitar I've ever put an old Jackson pickup in needs the cavity routed a bit to fit the oversize pickup. You could absolutely remove the pickup cover and it will fit inside of any traditional humbucker cavity. I've read once or twice that the non-raised logo covers were a smaller size, but I can't 100% confirm that. If you need a pickup ring that will fit the oversized Jackson covers, check out fretsonthenet.com. The owner, Dave, makes tons of hard to find replacement parts for older guitars.

    The same problem with me. My J 50 didn't fit into the frame and I had to remove the cover, I think.
    One of you had bought my J-50 BC at the time (I can't remember who it was). Was it with or without the cover? I don't remember.
