  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I have been doing a little research and seem to be going down a rabbit hole. I wanted to change a TOM bridge on a Jackson with a 12-16" radius however I cant seem to find one with the same radius or one that will work, would a "normal" TOM bridge work or would I find a difference in the feel...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, it's been a while since I've posted here. I'm currently finishing working on a guitar and would like advice on what I should go for. Essentially, it's like this. I'm using a MIM strat body with a Warmoth neck, I'm going to be using Sperzel tuners that match the color of the bridge, and...

    For my RG2228 project I have to insert the new posts which when inserted will trap a ground wire in the hole. So I wanted to grab a tough wire such as those normally as used on as ground bare wire. Basically I'm worried that as I insert a copper wire it will snap and I'll be left having to yank...

    I've been looking at a getting a guitar for shred/metal with a floyd type bridge, and I've been looking at jackson. My main question is what is the difference between something like the late 2000s dk2m, and the early 90s professional series as far as quality goes. also how are the bridges? I...

    I kinda hate the ZR Trems, so I was curious what other alternatives I had. Preferably without having to drill/route.
  7. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'm thinking of various mods I could do to my strat, and have considered upgrading the bridge. I'm in absolutely no rush to do it, but I'd like to do some research nonetheless. EDIT: it would appear I'm just after upgrading the trem block, not necessarily the whole bridge itself. From what I...

    Long story short. I bought and had these parts made for me to be thrown into a guitar. I sent them off to a luthier to have him assemble and do the work on this, but he decided to steal everything instead. About 2 years later and tons of dealing with detectives and lawyers, these arrived on my...

    * WD Music Products - 7 STRING TUNEOMATIC BRG CHROME Doesn't seem like there's much out there, but I found that site that has 'em. Anyone know of a place that stocks them with Graphtech saddles?
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Does anybody here know where I can get something like this. It appears the company that produced that conversion bridge went out of business and I've not been able to locate something similar. I'm not interested in just blocking the bridge as I'd lideally like to actually put piezo saddles and...

  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Is there a breakdown on which bridges are compatible with which models? I have a RG570 that has a couple chips and some scuffs and I was thinking the I might "upgrade" or something if thats an option as a drop in replacement.
