    HI ,
    I will appreciate a lot if you help me and all gsr200 owners to do the best possible mod on this good cheap model (http://www.ibanez.com/guitars/guitar.asp?model=GSR200).
    I know it depends on wich sound you are looking for, I can say that I'd like very much a warm sound, mid rich, bass rich, something like warwick.
    I'd prefer inprove it rather than buy another one because I've played it for a long period so I know it very well and I'm not rich :meh: .

    1. NUT
    the original is an orrible plastic one, i think is compulsory to change it with a bone one. Any particular suggestion or cunning? I thik is necessary a prefessionist for this work

    2. PICKUP
    some stuff I like, let's talk about:
    - EMG p/j set or
    - EMG 35 TW or
    - x2 EMG J

    Off course I like EMG sound but are expensive, what do U think about??
    a second question, GSR has a battery 9V. but is passive, I think is possible to put this active pickup?

    3. BRIDGE
    - Schaller or
    - Leo Quan or
    - Rickenbaker

    I have never played this stuff so, I'm writing what I've heard around

    4. STRINGS
    - Fender 045 = 065 = 085 = 105
    - warwick 040 = 060 = 080 = 100
    - 50 = 70 = 95 = 115

    I don't like the original gsr200 cords, and in particular the G strings sounds like metallica guitar :scowl: Maybe a bigger one could sound warmer?? Or It depends by the pickups??

    thanx a lot, I hope this will become the gsr200 final modding source
  2. I think you might want to post this in the setup forum. People here generally talk about building and repairing instruments.
  3. You've already asked this in the Setup forum. This is called double posting and it's not looked upon favorably around here. You've gotten plenty of good responses up there so that's where you should be. :rolleyes:
  4. Yea.
  5. Double Post.

    I could of sworn this was Double Posting...
