    G2420T strings?

    He probably would, if necessary. I told him the guitar doesn't stay in tune, and he had some ideas on how to remedy that.

    G2420T strings?

    What strings did this guitar ship with? I just dropped mine off for a setup, and included a set of D'addorio EXL110's (10's) for the guitar tech to install, thinking that's what they needed, but now I'm not sure. I don't think he did the job yet, so there's still some time to get more...

    Tone wood on hollows and semi hollows.

    Well, bit of a story on this guitar. I actually preferred a used Epi ES-335 that was hanging next to it at the Guitar Center. Neck/fretboard seemed more my kind of thing, lovely laminated substantial maple body (the Ibanez feels/weighs like balsa wood), and, played clean, sounded like the great...

    Tone wood on hollows and semi hollows.

    How good/bad is linden? Picked up a used Ibanez Artcore AF75G at Guitar Center for only $250 + tax. Discovered from the s/n and place of manufacture (Inodonesia) that it's not the original maple body/rosewood fingerboard/mahogany neck model but a later linden body/laurel fingerboard/nyatoh neck...

    BT-2S pickups -- where to get them?

    I tried another model which had the BT-2S, and they seemed to have more definition, which I'm looking for when playing jazz. I might grow to like the regular Broad'Trons, but actually, I'm not sure I want to keep this guitar. I've had it for about a month, but it never stays in tune longer than...

    BT-2S pickups -- where to get them?

    My 2420T Streamliner has the original Broad'Tron pickups, but I'd like to swap them out for the later issue BT-2S. Where are these available?

    2420T (2016 vs 2019 editions)

    Followup (so far): As recommended by the Guitar Center tech, gently tightened up the individual saddles -- but the intonation is now off, with fret buzzing, especially along string 'G'. Then yesterday, the Bigsby handle got loose and fell off. As far as I can tell, the only way to reattach it is...

    2420T (2016 vs 2019 editions)

    The block inlay is only for the 2016 model, or at least, Guitar Center's sale was for the 2016 model (with the 2019 still priced separately at $599). Here's a pic of the 2019 2420T:

    2420T (2016 vs 2019 editions)

    Hi, all. First time poster. I just purchased a new 2420T yesterday from a local Guitar Center. On sale for $350 + tax. I was looking for a jazz box, so it seemed like a good deal. Brought it back today for a setup, because there's annoying buzz around the bridge area of unknown origin. The...
