White Spectrum FX for sale

Post by The Chad on Sat Mar 26, 2011 6:50 pm

Here's the link: White Spectrum FX

Looks pretty nice, from the original owner I think. Cool The Bendmaster is gone though, Floyd Rose in its place.

These guitars sound really good, I'm so glad I bought mine. This one for sale is not a bad price at $325, if it's as nice as it looks.

Buyer beware - the Floyd does not look very close to the bridge pickup - so how does this guitar intonate? Since it's an FX, you know he didn't move the neck toward the bridge. And it looks like he didn't move the bridge toward the neck.

Forgive my ignorance, but how does the bridge being too close to the pickup effect the intonation?

If the distance is too short or too long, it throws off the relationship affecting correct intonation along the fretboard. That's why guitar scales lengths are all quite similar.

It doesn't.

But, if the bridge posts had been moved forward to allow the Floyd Rose to make scale and thus intonate correctly, there would be a smaller gap between the bridge and the bridge pickup. So I am using this distance between the bridge and the bridge pickup to determine that this guitar has probably not been modified to intonate correctly with the Floyd Rose.

Not having the guitar in my hands and having a measuring tape...
