A custom made Korina tone wood body made to retrofit on Albert May's
Ibanez Petrucci Guitar. When Albert rebuilt his Petrucci guitar he used his
original neck and my shop made him this wonderfully resonant Korina Body. The
tonal difference was so incredible that a even a beginner could immediately hear
the difference. These are currently in stock.
Notice the step routed pickup cavity. This allows the replacement pickups
to mount directly to the body instead of floating on springs. This factor makes
the pickups and guitar resonate together. More gain before feedback and
significantly clearer highs and tighter lows.
We compared the original Dimarzio pickups (Stock) against the
Seymour Duncan Black/Backs TM and we were astounded by
the difference. The Dimarzio's distorted horribly on the low end compared to the
The other comparison of note was the Tremolo. We compared the Stock
Ibanez Tremolo against the real Original Floyd Rose The tonal difference was again immediately
apparent. The original Floyd Rose is made to extremely close tolerances. The
steel is hardened to 60 Rockwell. Not only did the guitar hold tune better it
sounded better and was much more responsive than the original Ibanez
model. The Ibanez Original performed adequately however.
