I just aquired a 2008 Egen18 in a very nice condition.
There are some parts that will need replacing though...
The pressure pads look pretty worn down (obviously caused by overtightening I guess).
According to the parts cat. I'd need pad #2LNX5BA004... *but* unfortunately that one has been discontinued :(
Does any1 have an idead if I can use other pads as well ? It's a 43mm nut & I guess that maybe Ibz uses standard pads for several guitars ?
Model No. :
LOCKING NUT/G BARLESS TYPE
Note : Locking nut: Barless W43 Gold
I would bet that part #2LN3YBA014 would be a direct replacement. If you don't want to buy replacements "blind", I'd suggest checking with an Ibanez dealer to confirm, but I'm 98% certain these would work.
