I've done the pigtail studs, bushings and wrap tail on my R4 with awesome results. More clarity, sustain and resonance.fernieite said:Cool Jeff. I've been thinking about the pig tails for my 05 R8. I wonder if they'd improve my already great paul. Steve said the tone should'nt change that much, ( mine already has the Gibson lightweight tailpiece ) but his tolerances are better and closer to the 50's machining and shape. Look forward to your observations.
Everything is pigtail on my two historics including bushings. Jim loves doing the bushings, he's probably already losing sleep. hehe I tell I don't care if he scuffs mine up it's a player not a show piece but he still frets over it.fernieite said:Hi Jeff. I've got the whole kit on the way: pigtail 50's ABR wireless bridge, stop tail, bushings, studs and thumbwheels. Jim's going to install them on my 05 R8. I was wondering if you got the bushings as well? I hear they're a pain to install. Sean.
Sorry, I don't know the answer to that question.dwagar said:Hey Jeff, do the thumbwheels fit the std ABR1 thread?
