  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    My Warmoth/Kramer build is basically done. My luthier realized there was a shielding issue with the Sustainiac pickup after he told me it was ready to go so he's currently fixing that. Anyways, while I was there and able to look at it, I discovered I had made a mistake when buying my parts. I...

    As you can see from the pictures, the truss rod has been moved down (or backwards, depending on your orientation), and is pressed hard into the bottom of the route. As such, I cannot get the truss rod wrench over the nut on the end. Stringing the guitar up increases the bow slightly, as well...

    Pretty good stuff.

    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 have this Warmoth neck with a stripped truss rod and I have digged out the wood and drilled to make a little grip but NOTHING WORKS. What the hell am I supposed to do anymore? I can't get the truss rod to turn. I may have some super glue dipped that have made the truss rod stuck, but I'm...

    When I played it a few days ago the palm of my hand somehow rubbed along the edge of the fretboard and split the paint/lacquer loose on that spot. The paint did not crack, it's still there, but it's not sticking to the fretboard. It's hard to explain this, so I attached two pics at the end of...

    just to ask if anybody did experienced with this two bridges ? and what are the differences between these two? brighter , more sustain, more mids ? as am looking to do a non tremolo bridge and these two is the only way to go.... better tone ? classic tone ?

    I didn't even notice this until my friend played my guitar tonight, but after his discovery i remembered that it did take a pretty hard fall a couple months ago (in its soft case). I can't tell how deep or severe the crack is, but is there any way i can fix this or prevent it from getting worse...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Anybody here use or have heard of them? I just found out that a good friend of mine that I haven't seen or talked to in years is the main man behind these. Seems like a pretty good set-up! :yesway: Not just blowing smoke because he's an old friend but I really genuinely like the set-up and look...

    Put the right man on the job. Black red zebra Evo (or maybe just the bobbin sticker, since it has an Evo in it already) and red single coil cover incoming for a red (coil closest to the bridge) - black - red (middle coil) - black theme. Cliplock will be fully installed once I find my drill...

    So I accidentally drilled through the front of an m307 i got a while ago, and as such there's a hole in the front of the guitar (ooooops!) so, advice is needed on how best to either fix it, or cover it up? Will post pictures of my fail later on... ...and here's the fail!

    My 82 Mockingbird, which is my favorite guitar. Problem is, it has the unique BC Rich scale (a bit shorter than an LP scale) and a Kahler, and I know that for heavy playing that's a bit of a problem, because anything with a heavy attack (which is pretty much exclusively what I play) the tuning...

    Not listening to Spawn of Possession is a common problem, but--thankfully--one that is easily remediable.
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I just ran across a Mini Rec for only $559 at Guitar Center. I got really excited about the price until I played it and realized it was messed up. I had the lead channel cranked all the way up, but it sounded weak and fizzy, no low end at all, and wasn't very loud. It sounded like a cheap...

    I've been trying to run again lately, figuring that's the only thing that'll actually get me skinny again. The respiratory exercise I can handle, but it's actually shin pain that's causing the most trouble during and after running. Do any of you run, and if so, and thoughts on this? Wrong...

    For Carvin holdsworth owners. Thought this would help.

    I have an 87 RG550 with a crack on the back, around the locking nut holes that I would like to fix. The crack has been there for about 15 years, since I have had the guitar, so I don't think it is "that" bad of damage. I guess I could leave well enough alone, but I would like to do something...

    So I am staring down the neck of my Schecter and it appears to be fairly straight with maybe the slightest lick of relief. For some reason, adjusting the saddles doesn't make too much of a difference. It has the tonepros tun-o-matic bridge by the way. The low E saddle is moved all the way back...
