I'm a proud owner of two beautiful Jackson guitars. The KVXMG and the KVXT. I've put in both guitars the EMG 81 & 60 combo and now they are almost equal. As you probably know, the KVXT got a String-Thru-Body construction and the KVXMG a licensed Floyd Rose "Special" Tremolo. I like the tone of the KVXT much better, because it's brighter and clearer. The KVXMG sounds in comparison a bit darker and more dull (and no, it's not because of the strings. they are both the same and they are new ones
). However I searched for a solution in many forums and I think two solutions sounded very logic, but I don't want to try them out blindly.1.
Replacing the old "special" licensed tremolo with the ORIGINAL floyd rose tremolo will incease brightness and clearness, because the metal of the ORIGINAL floyd rose got more quality.2.
Replacing the sustain block or "big block" under the floyd rose with another one, made of "better" metal, will affect the tone of the guitar. Also, the tone depends on which
metal you choose for the block.
I hope you can help me with my problem and I apology for any language mistakes I've made
