    More homemade shit, this one has been gestating for a while. I just got around to painting it today. Basically, there were some nice panels of furniture grade pine left over from a contracting project I was doing, and I was doing my quarterly "restring/oil/gorgomyte" on the soloist and two and...

    One of my guitars has sat in its case for far too many years and I need to clean the fretboard and the frets. The frets seem worse off than the fretboard as they have some tarnish going on. Anyone have some favorite YouTube videos that cover this? Thanks!

    This weekend I had a buddy over (flaxfoot on the forum), and we noticed my Mac, although 6 years old, was running way too slow. Fritz opened up the Active Processes screen and noticed I had a few too many, nearing 220. Does anyone know of a good program to clean that up? Should I just run a...

    My parents are finally selling the house I grew up in as a teenager. My stuff has been cleaned out from there since I was 18; however, I was doing a once over before Salvation Army showed up to take everything away, and I found the below. Glad I double checked. I can't count the number of...

    So, the Mark II is dirty. I don't do the whole cleaning thing very often, so I don't know what exactly would be safe to use on tolex without discoloring it real bad. Just a degreaser? Spit? Semen?

    Scenario: I was instructing a customer in how to clean the lens of a card scanner with the provided cleaning sheet. (Me) Ok, now apply isopropyl alcohol to the cleaning sheet. (Customer) How much does it need to get wet? (Me) As wet as you can get ._.

    I bought a Halo Triton system because the $75 Matrix whatever I bought earlier this year turns out to have proprietary threaded atomizers that are impossible to find except in a $15 tank (it's all metal, can't buy the wicks alone, fucking BS, can't find them online) only available from my local...

    Was going to buy a cheap one off of eBay but seeing they are all from China, the metal is probably soft and cheap. I'll wait til I can pay for a proper Floyd. So I pulled it apart for some much needed cleaning, it is pretty disgusting. So much crap in between the saddles that 4 came out...
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Has anybody tried this? It's a fairly common problem amongst import guitars in my experience, and I'd like to clean it up a little bit if possible. Using a solvent seems like a bad idea, as I wouldn't want to mess up the frets that are already seated. Sanding it doesn't seem like a good idea...

    Edited: Cleaning my fretboard..is this an option? Edit: Never mind people, I just Goggled it, which i should have done in the first place. It might not be such a good idea. I'd still like a few options or procedures for cleaning and conditioning my fretboard. I broke down the Epi Special 2 I...

    He got a nasty virus, so I have to lobotomize the thing. It's my penance for his setup help over the years. Remember how I give him shit about how many things he keeps on his desktop? Poll inc. See if you can guess correctly.

    Anyone know how I can clean the rubber foot part on a Boss pedal? I've only tried scrubbing it with a toothbrush so far to no effect. Anything obvious I'm missing?

    Is there anything I can use that might be laying around the house for this job? The RGD is getting torn completely to bits soon and would like to clean the body while I'm there.

    I have an M100C. It smells of shit. How do I stop it smelling of shit? There isn't anything in it, it's like it's been stuck in a smoky, mouldy room, it seems stuck in the fabric. I wouldn't care, but it makes my S7420 smell, too. :( Suggestions?
