Where to get it done, the cost, etc. I would appreciate it. Thanks
    I had a JB in the bridge of my Ibanez RG550 (Basswood body/Rosewood fingerboard) for a long time. It sounded really good and was not too toppy at all. The stock JB has very healthy midrange already. I've heard that the A2 JB sounds good, but I'd have to think it was even more midrangey than a CC (if that is possible). It probably would make the low end a little more spongy, but not necessarily muddy. It's hard to go wrong with a JB.

    The a2 JB is pretty cool. I had it in a tele for a while. Here are a couple of quick tunes that I recorded.
    JB A2, Plexi, poplar Tele, dirty
    Same guitar and amp, hot stack in neck

    Hey Armo; just wanted to let you know that I won't be able to get this done before I head out of town. I just have too many other things that need done before I leave.

    I should be back late Monday though, and will do it soon after.

    Hang in there.

    Ok, I'll see if I can get this done tomorrow. I just found out that I gotta go back to Norfolk on Thursday morning for an emergency repair on a carrier.

    I really want to know what this sounds like before I go.

    I'll keep ya'll posted.

    You've captured my interest, too, Artie -- I've been looking for an excuse to take the Breeds out of my Jem!

    Re: Alnico II in JB?

    Thanks for the insight. Well I think im gonna need one of u wise people to help me make a good decision on how to make a Basswood/ RW neck guitar sound really great. If one of u could just give ur best recommendation on what to do to make the guitar sound like really good for rock and blues and that good stuff, i would appreciate it. Thanks
    p.s. i think im thinking along the lines of Alnico 2, but that all depends.

    Firts...a jb is kind bright IMO W/ 500k pots...drop the value to 250k abnd you should be fine! If you did want to swap magnets...an alnico II would not give you more bass but it would be more mellow...which might come acress as having less treble. I hope this helped

    Thanks, that would be awesome if you could tell me the outcome of that, i would appreciate it. What do you think i should trade the JB for if the JB ends up not sounding good in that wood, I will most likely combine my choice with an APH-2 in the neck. Well thanks, and get me that info as soon as u can on the JB.

    Hey Armotron; If you aren't in a big hurry, I'm going to be putting a JB into a basswood Peavey Genny, sometime in the next week. (The one in my sig.)
    I'll let you know how it sounds.

    Also, JB's tend to be in reasonable demand in the Trading Post. You may want to consider trading it, rather than doing a magnet swap. Just a thought.

    Anyway, I'll report on the JB-in-basswood soon.
