  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Browsing my usual YT Channels since I took a break last month from Internet so there's lots of catch up to do, anyway I went to Leon Todd channel and saw this. I'm sure some here will probably be interested. I also didn't knew there were still people doing Mods to it since the Unit is...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I love this guitar it's totally badass. Love the look and the sound and it got even better with the pickups, but the hardware just never tied in IMO. So I finally figured out what I wanted to do with it. I ordered the aged copper Floyd push in arm assembly. Then I ordered some brass fine...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So while I sit here and wait for the slowest hurricane to ever exist to come and do what it's gonna do, I figured I would do a couple of mods to my cheapo Kramer project. Installed a set of Planet Waves tuners and a steel trem block.
  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So for the longest time my Dad has wanted a Marshall JCM800 that sounded like Van Halen, Alice in Chains, Lynch, Whitesnake or whatever tone he was seeking out with those guys using Marshalls. I told him for years the way those guys got those tones was through Modded Marshalls and not a stock...
  5. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    This hideous creation started its life as an original Crybaby with a few issues. It already has a few battle scars from re-assembly, but it's to be expected using shellac. (Don't finish pedals in shellac! :lol: ) Pretty happy with how it came out, not perfect but I like it and I've learned at...
  6. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hey Guys, Are there any good mods for trems to have a string-through design? The kind that eliminate the need for graphite blocks. I know that the graphite is part of the floyd magic but I at last want to put one on my lowest string to reduce string breaks due to stripping. Are there any good...

  8. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I finally got to do all the mods on my Stupid Deal of the Day G&L ASAT Bluesboy. Switched the pickups to the same G&L MFD bridge pickup and Duncan Seth Lover that the USA models have. Swapped the control plate for a new one with CTS pots (500k volume and 259k tone), CMR switch, orange drop...
  9. Music: Other Instruments
    I added copper shielding to the P bass, because it didn't have any in the cavity, only a layer of aluminum on the pick guard. Also, I was like fuck it, I'm not ordering a flat black pick guard, I'm making mine flat black, so I murdered it with 800 grit wet/dry sanding in the same direction...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    First brand new guitar I've bought since 2007... which was, oddly enough, another Schecter. This is the relaunched Blackjack line. Thinner necks, ebony boards, subtle inlays, all black hardware, Duncan Nazgul/Sentient combo. Want to remove the Vol/Vol/Tone with the pull on the tone and replace...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I got the RG a little under a month ago, and with a whole list of shit going wrong, missing parts, needing to replace parts, I finally got around to getting all the mods together and putting it all together yesterday! Sounds fan-fucking-tastic. Super responsive and bright, I can't...

  16. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hey all, I need some advice regarding doing some maintenance to a guitar I recently picked up. It's a custom 8 string made by a luthier here in British Columbia, Joe Egan. Aside from the issue I'm writing about, it's a beautiful, tone-rich instrument. The seller picked it up off craigslist in...
