  6. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Wirelessly posted (Wondernuts) For those of you not familiar with it I went to several music stores to get some new posts and lock blocks for my Floyd and a new lock nut to deal with some stability issues. No one had any parts. I took a special trip to Sydney Guitar Setups, a business that...

  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I had a look at the current builds I'm doing and chose this as the topic for a build thread. It's for a customer in QLD (top of Australia, I'm in VIC down the bottom) and it's a bit different spec than I'm used to. For example I usually do seven strings and this is a six, the customer also...

    I hate to sell this, But sometimes life demands you sell a guitar. No way out of it.

    Comments seem to be divided between "he's awesome" and "he's just playing one string + open tuning = nothing special." He seems to have those intonation frets on his guitar, though, which is cool. Bonus points for you nerds who noticed the part of his song that sounds like it's from Contra...

  20. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    A question for the aussies or for those of us who've done business with them - what do you guys recommend to mail a guitar to Australia? Any horror stories I should be aware of, or providers that are significantly cheaper than the others? Thanks! :metal:
