    Can anyone recommend an amp tech in the Boston area to whom I can take my Vox AC30S1 for repair? I love its sound, but I am having problems. The input jack keeps coming out when I remove the guitar cord. Also, sometimes I lose the sound, especially when I turn the gain knob past 12 noon. I...

    So I have been doing odd jobs for guys around town repairing pedals and amps for a while now, and it is starting to get to the point where people are bringing me stuff and I need to start charging. What sort of labor rates are people getting for this sort of work? There aren't really any places...

    I seem to remembar a long long time ago, someone was raving about a product that conceals scratches and pick-swirls on a gloss body to some extent. Search is not turning up anything so I wonder it anyone can remember/recommend?

    Damn I need another guitar like a hole in my head. But this RG570 just popped up locally for $200, has had the neck repaired from the looks of it. I know nothing else except what is listed in the ad. Any opinions? https://cosprings.craigslist.org/msg/d/ibanez-rg570-pod-hd500x/6430428763.html

    I've watched a few YouTube vids, and I'm confident I can fix it myself. My issue is it's only cracked part way through. It's not completely snapped off. I put a fair amount of pressure on the end of the headstock to see if I can open the gap big enough to get some glue in there, but the carack...

    I have a Mesa/Boogie Rocket 44 that needs repairs. After 10 minutes or so, there is a loud hum. I do not believe that the hum is caused by my guitar's pickups, because they are two EMG 81s. Also, from time to time there is a loud pop when I turn on the standby switch or a loud pop when I turn...

    Hey guys, I'm thinking about grabbing one of Ola's Washburn Solar 8's used. Unfortunately the fretboard as some scuffs on the bass side around where the neck meets the body, not sure how someone scuffs a fucking fretboard! :scratch: Either way is this reparable? Here's a pic of the damage, I...

    I inherited a neglected RG570 from my friend and it has been sitting in my closet for far to long! I strung it up and noticed that the neck had a nice big crack. My question is what do I do? 1. Wood glue the SOB back together? I can open up the crack with pressure and drop some glue. Does this...

    So I picked up a Jackson PDX-2 Demmelition King V, with a damaged headstock. The repair was a horrible DIY attempt as you can see. Nice huh? I posted on the Jackson site..and the suggestions were to cut it out along the wide open seam. I've been doing that, and it's soft in some...

    Wirelessly posted (Wondernuts) Title sums it up. Picked up my triaxis from repair, every tantalum cap and a resitor later and it's working again. Plug it back into my power amp and g system and try dialing in some sounds and everything sounds fucking awful. It's as though there's a blanket over...

    It's in the neck where the fret board tore off some of the wood as it was coming off. do I use a professional wood filler.
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Some dickhead has been adjusting the action on my RR3 with the strings in full tension, so my bridge no longer floats properly. Can I get away with just sharpening the 'cutaways' on the bit of the bridge the connects to the posts, or do I need a new bridge??? Never tried this repair myself but...

    I have an old Jackson Dinky EX body laying in my box of spares that ended up there due to issues with the body. It was a Japanese model Dinky with pick guard and swimming pool route. I'll upload pictures this afternoon when I get home to show the exact problem. Whats happened it the wood in...
  14. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    One of my guitars that I have had for other types of music besides metal, but mostly metal, is kind of getting rough on the back of the neck from my thumb rubbing up and down o nit. It's an Ibanez so the neck is unpainted. Is there an easy to to get rid of this? It kind of feels like if there...

    Hi all! I've got an old Danelectro CF-1 which sounded good back when it worked but now it's got an issue where the fuzz knob crackles, hence I ordered a new pot. Also, when switched on, it reduces the volume coming from the amp. Anyone know how to fix this? Cheers!
  16. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hi there, haven't posted here for a while :/. My HT5 has gone very quiet and is you can only hear it when the volume is turned to max. I opened it up (Yes, I do know what I am doing) and checked the voltages on the tubes and power supplies - all looks good (~350V for HT, 12.6V for heaters)...

    I've been searching the net, looking for info on cleaning/repairing my Floyd, and came across this. This has probably been mentioned somewhere on here before, but thought I'd re-post for the other new guys Floyd Rose maintenance, troubleshooting, tips and repair

    I contacted my local Guitar Center repair shop here in S Fl to see about how much it would be to have the pickups wired and intonation set on my Charvel and was quoted $165. That struck me as rather high so I emailed them to clarify and be sure and yep that was it. Now I have built guitars and...

    Thought I would share this one with you guys also... I know, it's a lot of work for a cheap guitar, but I got it for free (I bought it, sold the hardware and still made some $ :D) and it's always a good idea to try things on cheap guitars instead of f*cking some 2k guitar... Now, the guitar...
