Assault 220

Post by 88PCII » Fri May 05, 2017 11:36 pm

Picked this one up locally including the following improvements:
Bridge Pickup is a DiMarzio PAF, Neck Pickup a SD, tremolo changed to an OFR (1000 series?), tuners changed to locking grovers, knobs with MOP inlay.
fretboard is definitively no rosewood...

...and yes, on the pic the strings are only held by the locking nut - had to fill/cover/repair the holes from an added string retainer....

But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Fretboards on those are ebony. Nice Axe for the money, I had one and sold it to my ex-singer.

You mean Assault 220, not Baretta?

Any 10mm shaft tuners with 45° will fit. If you want Grover, the 406 series will fit:

Those are only top-locking though, so I'd rather go with rear-locking Schaller M6 or Planet Waves or such.
