    So I got my "Apple Silicon" Mac Mini M1, with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD. I'd have a picture of it, but.....it's a fucking Mac Mini; everyone and their mother knows what it looks like. Likes: It's a Mac. So obviously it was designed well, and just works. I actually really like the size; this...

    So, I haven't posted any updates on the thread about my JTV-69 but the synopsis is that I ordered the repair parts for a fair price and in the meantime, I'm really digging this guitar and expecting it to stick around for a while. That said, I've been noodling on it a lot while I work on my...

    Managed to get the string block sorted, but can't find a stockist for the trem arms anywhere, and it's typical Ibanez proprietary crap so nothing else will fit. Even the arm holder and its hole are designed so that no alternative can be used :roll2:

    I finally got the package from Floyd Rose and oh yeah!!! The push-in arm with Gotoh Floyd-style hex tension screw is fucking brilliant. I have had Original Floyd Rose for 5 years and I've always had to lock the thumbwheel down several times when I play. And with years it has gotten worse and...

    Having two guitars with the push-in style arm now, black and chrome, it turned out that chrome was a way looser fit. When I tightened the set screw, enough to eliminate play, the arm wasn't as easy to move as the black one. The right fix is to use fine machine oil, aka 3-in-1 oil on the shaft...

    I grabbed two OFR trem arm holder assemblies to replace the arm holders on my two lo-pro equipped guitars, because they're fucking awesome, but I can't get the damned things off. :lol: Did Ibanez change the way they install these things? Or am I doing something wrong? There was a fair amount of...

    In good condition. It's got an Allen Key collar to hold the arm, pretty sure I still have the arm but I can't lay my hands on it this second. £50

    Outside workouts in mosquito season. I swear to fucking god. I sustained ~5000 bites in 2 minutes of jogging past their stupid breeding pond. Nothing like 40 insects sucking your blood for every inch of exposed flesh to put a little spring in your step. If this is my arm after 5 minutes...

    You've seen this guitar in my Japanese Auction thread. Repaired the headstock and refinished where it's been sanded so it feels great. 27 inch scale RG with a Lo Pro Edge, JB/59 factory set, Ibanez special strap locks that are kind of like Dunlop ones but not shit and all the original hang tags...

    Well I got a huge ass package from noodles the other day. How about we take a look inside? :agreed: Wait what the fuck is this? No it can't be a TON of shredded paper, what kind of person would pack a guitar like that? Noodles is that kind of person :squint: It took me 5 minutes alone to pull...

    So I've been working on this project for a year now. It's a gesture controlled robotic arm using the Arduino Yun. I'm not sure how many of you are hardware tinkerers or are interested in Robotics, but this should be quite entertaining either way! Our project was mainly inspired by Yu Jiang...

    Hey guys, I'm fixing up an old RG7620 that I've got and I'm trying to track down the following: - Ibanez 7 string nut in black (or preferably just the pads and bolts) - Ibanez 7 string retainer bar (Are the 7 string ones longer that normal ones?) - Lo pro saddle block (just need one) - Lo Pro...

    This is a pretty simple idea that I originally saw on Instructables a while ago but was not happy with the way the original tutorial handled some things so I decided to do one myself. Materials Needed: Microphone Holder Tertial Work Lamp from IKEA (Article Number: 203.703.83) A nut or several...
