I just got my HM Strat back from buyer who never paid me so I'm fucking stoked to get this fucker going!!!!
When I sold it I had already started sanding the finish (took fucking forever, and I never finished anything but the front) and then I regret sanding off the finish, so I tried spraying some white but then I regretted that and I sold the fucker.
But now it's back!!!!!
So far I've only made the Floyd front cavity large enough to fit a Gotoh Floyd, and also put some epoxy filler in the knob holes and stuff.
I am actually going to try and screw the Gotoh studs right into the old Kahler bushing holes, they fit exactly and feels REAAALLLYYY solid just a couple of rounds down, so I think screwing the studs down the holes all the way down to good action will make them just as fucking tight as old OFR wood screws, but I know if I would go up and down with action too much I might have a problem, but then I just have to unscrew them, plug a 8 mm wood shit (I think) and then go to a drill press and make 11mm holes for Gotoh bushings. Problem solved! But I'm willing to try out something that nobody else has! Studs right in wood !!!!
not exactly the straightest route job ever
but I see wut u did thar
besides, your playing makes up for any debauchery you could come up with, ever.
