A more detailed pic of the FTP Install on my Ibanez Prestige RG 1550,( left), and my Ibanez Prestige RGA 121. Due to installation clearance issues, My luthier is fabricating a combo mount and bridge pickup surround for my Les Paul. When completed I will post pics.
I removed a GK 3 from the RGA 121 above, you can see the mount holes. Lots of mounting space on this one.
Actually just enough width clearance on the RG 1550 for the FTP. On both of these high end Ibanez guitars the bridge radius is not adjustable, it matches the fretboard radius of 430 mm. The action can raise or lower, but the radius is constant. When the hex mags are at the minimal distance from the D and G strings, the distance from both E strings is still well within tolerance, and raising the sensitivity slightly evens it all out, but an adjustable radius hex pickup, like the trusty GK 3, would be a welcome update on the next gen Triple Play.
BTW, My luthier shimmed the neck on a stock Strat at his shop to see how it felt, providing the clearance necessary for an FTP install on most Strats. It may not bother anybody else, but it didnt feel right for me, so I'm having the pickguard routed on my Andy Timmons Signature model for the FTP mount to install flush , providing the needed clearance without changing neck angle. This will work on most Strat type guitars with height clearance issues.
