  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    This post is mostly for reference and answers a few questions I previously had, mostly using Metric measurements. For those who didn't see in the main thread related to my current project, I recently routed out an Ibanez Falchion style body for an Evertune F model bridge, as you can see below...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've got a jackson soloist elite that has a short someplace. Thinking about replacing the pickups. Question is, can I squeeze the pickups in place by removing just the 1st and 2nd strings or 5th and 6th? I do not want to remove or mess with the floyd rose. I recently had a set up done and know...
  3. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'm putting a tone capsule in my Spector. Components used are two 25k volume pots, one of the 50k tone pots it comes with for bass, and one 50k stacked tone pot for mids. Enough talk Here is my mockup And here it is soldered up, I just have to install it in the guitar, and swap over the...

    Hi:) Im about to swap pickups in my guitar. It's stocked with washburn Solars. I have purchased a SH1 59' and a Custom 5 (Both SD) The pole spacing is different! And the 59 is too high so it hit the strings! I know i took the change without taking measurrs first, but honestly i guessed they...
  5. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So, with tools arranged, I started my install of my new Seymour Duncan Gus G. Fire System into the Jackson King V (hardtail). I'd mapped everything out except the 3-way slider switch. Pickups went in fine except the tabs were a little wide for the routing in the face of my guitar. Nothing a...

    Hey Dudes whats going on? For all you guys out there who have a 2101 (I just got mine like 2 weeks ago & it is "DA SHIT"! :james:) Still getting use to it but so far it's KILLER! It definitely has some sweet "Stock" patches already & more than enough FX to do just about anything you could want...

  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Sorry, I know my NGD's have been really brief :lol: PAF Pro (N) Super Distortion (B). Nick (TheSixthWheel) has been kindly skyping with me, instructing me on how to solder and install them but I'm being really pessimistic about it. I like the way it looks, I was honestly going for a Paul...
  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    My RG7620 must have superior tones to Quigs's JP7, because the CL/LF 7 pickups really aren't bad at all in my guitar. They're quite soft in the top end, but that doesn't affect the clarity. I can see why the djent crowd loves 'em. The only problem is they're too close to the strings, even with...
  10. Computers, Electronics, Gaming & IT
    I would like to create a CD that installs my current Linux Mint setup. I've never done this before, so I'm not sure if there is an easy tool available to do this, or if I should .tar.gz it up and find/build an installer script and all that myself. I dig the setup that I have, and I would like...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I lost my installation instructions for my LSR Locking Tuners. I looked everywhere on line for them too. I just forget what size pilot holes to drill for the screws they come with. Last time I didn't drill and I got hairline cracks between peg holes. Anyway, not about to make that mistake...
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So I have a guitar with 2 EMG-HZ 7s in it and I really dislike them so I decide to buy 1 EMG active pickup to replace the bridge HZ since I use that one more. So the first thing I do is get the strings and bridge off. I unlock the string locks (you might not have them) and loosen the strings...
