  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hi, I had left my black Sterling JP70 in a case for a few months, and oddly enough, even though I had left two packs of silica gel in the case with the guitar, when I opened the case a few days ago, the strings, the hardware (tuning heads), neck screws, back plate screws, pick-up pole pieces...

    I emailed Suhr a couple weeks ago and asked them to send me everything they'd spec on a new Modern like mine with black hardware. So they did, right down to every screw. If you're considering it, it's $356.50. I love this guitar but I am definitely a black hardware kind of guy. Suhr purists and...

    Finishing up my headshell build for the VH-140C. Mostly on the final steps of fitting the top section and the bottom snugly together. I looked fucking everywhere for feet and handles out of heavy duty metal. Couldn't find any. Had to improvise with some heavy duty shit. As far as the...

    Simple, really. My greendot has all the original cosmo hardware on it, and it's seen 25 years of wear, but is still in pretty good shape. If there's any interest at all I'll take some pics, but I'm not expecting any bites :rolleyes: If anyone's got a set of black RG7 hardware they're looking to...

    Got this one for a pretty fair deal including shipping AND customs, at least for me. I've been drooling for a Barrington for a couple of years and now I finally pulled the trigger! Now it LOOKS almost brand new except a few scratces on the back, but it's REALLY shiny and nice. Almost no rust...

    This is no longer a current model in Pearl White so one of the dealers was blowing these out. Typical solid MIK construction. Played great right out of the box. Needs a set up of course because of my fussy light string preferences. EMG's are going - not because I don't like them but because I...

    In my NGD thread for the Kramer Focus a few days ago, I noted that I was getting a Pacer Imperial (which the Focus is based off of) with which to compare. Well, here it is, straight out of 1983. I also included a few bad photos of the two guitars together for comparison's sake...

    If you find yourself with a horrendously rusted bridge, screws, trem, locking nut or most any guitar hardware it can be rebuilt quite easily with the right knowhow and time. I'll be using an original first year Edge trem from an RG550 I'm rebuilding (literally rebuilding, the headstock is off...

    Hi all, I'm looking for the following: 7 String square heel neck, can be 90's UV or an aftermarket one that will fit a square heel UV pocket. If someone can make one, just as good! Prefeably pyramid or offset dot inlays if not an original UV neck. 7 string AANJ neck, UV or RG, again...

    Well it's time to clear out my spare parts and odds and ends bin as I need to free up some space. Highly unlikely anyone will want it but thought I'd put it up here in case I have a Korean made Epiphone Iommi SG that I bought to take the pickups out of and since then it's sat unused. It was...

    Where's the best place to get hardware from these days? Need a tunomatic bridge for a 7 string. I've been out of the game too long, can't remember where I used to get all that shit from :lol:

    Hey guys, I recently bought a Wilkinson trem on e-bay to retrofit the 2-point trem on a Squier Strat I bought recently (NGD here this weekend once the bridge arrives) and after doing a little research I'm pretty stumped on what model it could possibly be. Here's an image of what it looks like...

    I've got a motherboard with 12Gb of ram and 2 (yes, two) xeon quad cores on it I've retired from being my main PC. Processors are watercooled. I've also got a 4U rack case for a PC i was thinking of mounting it in, but have no idea how i am going to fit two radiators in. Also, I have no idea...

    Will update as I do it. It's dawning on me with every second how big a job this is, with the restringing and setting up of two guitars I've got to do once they're swapped over, too :lol: I'm so slow at this shit it's not even funny... UPDATE: RG stripped! UPDATE 2: Xiphos stripped! UPDATE...

    Hey guys, I've had a black Les Paul Studio for about 15 years... it was my first "real" guitar after playing Dad's old knock-off Korean strat for a while... so it means a lot to me and it's pretty much my #1 when I don't need the deep low end of a 7-string. Built in '96. I'm considering...

    Why is it you only ever see black, chrome, gold as options for hardware. I know ibanez has Cosmo black. Why don't companies make colors? You know you want to see a desert sun yellow guitar with pink hardware. Couldn't they just be powder coated? I saw a guitar on ebay, axl badwater 1261 or...
