    I tossed a set of 301 lockers on my Taylor as well. I seriously don't know why I didn't do this to my acoustics 20 years ago. Best 65 bucks I've spent in a while. :metal: Front (reused the Taylor washers so it looks the same): Twins: :billted:

    Which ones are these, fine scholars of MG?

    Title says it all - which would be a direct replacement here? Ideally I'd like to stick with the same color, but if not I'm hoping I can use the stock tuning heads on the new bodies.

    LOK-N-ROLL - Floyd Rose, Guitar Upgrades, Electric Guitar | LOK-N-ROLL Anyone use these? I'm completely spoiled by the non-locking compensated nuts on most of my guitars, and I'd love to have something similar on my double locking ones as well. I thought Earvana had a locking compensated nut...

    I feel kind of like the "prevents theft" thing is a little overblown, since a committed thief breaking into your house the steal guitars would most likely have a screwdriver to take the entire thing from the wall, but I also feel like it is suitably pretentious enough to be appealing on some...

    Just saw this on FB, some might be interested on it. Pete Thorn has been prototyping it for some time now. Its not just an Unboxing video.

    Hear me out here... :lol: This is only slightly pretentious... One of the machineheads on my Silverburst keeps shitting the bed, since this is my main gigging guitar and it's almost 40 years old I should probably switch out the tuners for something more modern. Problem is, I'm a stickler for...

    So, the BCRich I have, the locking nut on that had pads that worked on the old style 10mm ibanez 7string nuts. SO, what nut should I look for, as I need 2 pads. Anyone know? Are there jackson ones that are smaller?

    Hi all, I'm looking to get back into electric guitar specifically for metal and have found over the last 30 years that I prefer shorter scale instruments but not too narrow of a neck. I was wondering if anyone could please post recommendations of guitars that are 24.75" to 25" scale length with...

    On a super tight budget, restoring my very first guitar which I've just got back off my nephew after about 11 years (totally forgot I gave it to him to learn on!) FR Specials, Schallers, that kind of thing. Can't afford OFR money, unless you're prepared to practically give it away. Must be black.

    Is it replaceable with a Gotoh? I might get a nice deal on a Korean S270 but I would like to know if anyone knows for sure if its a Direct Replace.

    I recorded a guest solo with my Jackson RR24 for a fellow forum members project. After I was finished I noticed "oh, I forgot to put on new strings after adjusting the trussrod and breaking a string a couple of weeks ago" Perfect tuning stability during the whole session and after about 40...

    Forgive the complete n00b question, but I've never actually tried this. If you have a floyd blocked so it's essentially a hard tail, there's not really a need to have a locking nut per say - can you take off the locking nut pads and use the floyd nut (sans the locking pads) just like a normal...

    Worth taking a chance on for purchase?: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kmise-A0062-1-Piece-43mm-Guitar-Locking-Nut-for-Floyd-Rose-Bridge-Chrome-/263445514796?hash=item3d56938a2c I just need the nut blocks/pressure pads. Nothing else.

    So I recently got an Ibanez with an Edge Pro(great trem) but it has those locking studs. I don't even know exactly how they work(I'v seen diagrams and I dont know why a little stick is going to keep the stud "locked"). Point being, I need to lower the action just a touch, but every allen wrench...

    Been looking online for a set of black locking tuners for my Ibanez RGIB6. Not looking to go high-dollar, just a descent set that works well and hopefully don't have to drill anything out. Can you guys point me in the right direction please? Also do I need staggered or non-staggered?

    All floyds was blocked to dive-only so I needed a floating too! Had only a shit Kramer neck that I couldn't fret level properly. So I took the neck from my old Fender Musicaster, put it on the Warmoth body. Tuning stability = :metal: Apparently, you really dont have to have a locking nut for...

    "Tandskena" means "dental splint" I just woke up, swapped a couple of necks on two guitars and instantly noticed why I've been right all the time! Why does some say "if you block the bridge, remove the locking clamps"?:scratch: It's just contra productive. Here's a video that showcases why...
