With so many loyal Floyd Rose shredders, Graph Tech took pains to ensure its GHOST for Floyd Rose® electronics tracks as fast as the fingers of the famous tremolo’s most prolific users. Because the Floyd Rose Tremolo encourages experimentation with sound, it’s users can expect to take their play or performance to a whole new level with the midi and acoustic features of Graph Tech’s industry-leading GHOST system.
The complete system for Floyd Rose includes GHOST String-Saver™ pickup saddles, Acousti-Phonic™ pre-amp, Hexpander™ pre-amp, switches to go from electric to acoustic sound or from guitar to midi sound, volume pots, and momentary up/down program selector. MSRP for Graph Tech’s GHOST LB63 for Floyd Rose ranges from USD $299.95 to $319.95.
LB63 GHOST® electronic components are also available individually so that guitarists may customize their system to their needs. For instance, it’s possible to install only the Acousti-Phonic or just the Hexapander components; with all of the additional controls being optional.
“Our GHOST system is known for its studio-quality acoustic tones and fast-tracking hexaphonic output. This is because Graph Tech custom-engineered the system’s piezo crystals for perfect acoustic output and reverse engineered the hexaphonic component based on the latest midi controller technology,” explains Graph Tech founder and President Dave Dunwoodie. “Because the GHOST LB63 pickups feature Graph Tech String Saver saddles, GHOST musicians also get the benefit of longer string life.”
In the GHOST hexaphonic pre-amp, Graph Tech’s proprietary harmonic damping system ensures tracking that is faster and more accurate than anything on the market today.
The Graph Tech GHOST system is designed to be compatible with the latest midi controller technology as well as older technology including the Roland V-88, GR-33, GI-20, the Axon AX100 midi controllers and many more.
In addition to the LB63 Bridge, GHOST systems are available for most Fender guitars and basses, Fender style bridges, tune-o-matic bridges, PRS, and Wilkinson-style bridges.
In February 2005, Graph Tech first introduced its String Saver™ saddles for Floyd Rose after receiving hundreds of requests from Floyd fans.
