Improved how? I only ask as my tech raved about the AVR-2 bridge swap on his 99 R9 and when I tried it on my 2021 the tonal shift was decidedly worse in my experience. This made me think perhaps his guitar was originally pretty dark.I can’t stand those ridiculous fake ABR things that Gibson has been putting on certain models - they sound awful, look too dainty, don’t feel right under my palm, and I hate the stupid conceit of trying to make things look “vintage”
I’ve removed the fake ABR on every guitar that’s come with one and put on a brass Nashville, which has dramatically improved the tone and looks of the guitars.
