    Well this is my first seven string, and I chose this one because apparently these are REALLY good mod platforms. Yesterday, I looked it over before I bought it. Neck pocket was pretty well flush, fret ends weren't sharp, no dead frets. A couple finish issues but oh well. Unplugged, this thing is...

    Does anyone have a source to find replacement pickup pole pieces for DiMarzio / Schecter pickups? I have a guitar with awesome sounding pickups, but the hex pole pieces are black and I dig the look of the nickel pole pieces. Years ago I emailed DiMarzio for some and they sent me a couple...

    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.

    Got my replacement DK24. The pink one had a neck issue so it went back. Got a primer grey in exchange. QC is better on this one and the neck is straight and tight unlike the last. There is a tiny bit of fret sprout which is probably due to the extreme climate change in shipping from Boston to...

    I have a dean MLX which is like a budget dean ML. its got a TOM bridge and string through body. Most of the hardware has been replaced but I still can't decide on what to replace the bridge with. Is heavier better? like steel or something? or is light-weight better? aluminium maybe? What TOM...

    I've had this pretty much since about 2003 or so, and 15 years is a good innings, but things like the output volume pots are going quite badly, and I don't really think I have the fight to open it up, and try to fix it (at least not at the moment, it'll end up like the 5150 that's been in bits...

    Replaced my LO TRS in my RG7420. Seemed to fit perfectly, until I went to put the cavity cover back on. The block is just a hair too tall. I still have to measure the block, but Floyd Upgrades has 7 string brass blocks. I think the 34mm one is the one I need. Anybody run across this problem...

    Hi guys. I've got an old 80's Platinum Warlock in the basement, which needs a new bridge. I don't think, that It's an original Floyd Rose. Anyone who knows, where I could get a replacement one?

    So, as I said a few days ago, some gear went out (life happens) and my "guitar stuff" account recouped a decent chunk of the loss. I had been looking at a Wolfgang to replace one of my guitars and decided instead on a killer Les Paul plaintop deal at Sam Ash. It arrived today. I've given it...

    Have you ever... that's open ended... purchased a similar or nearly identical instrument to one you already own (or owned) - because of aesthetics? Different color, different top, etc.,? I know a couple of you have - you might even collect a certain model or simply love that style and spec. I...

    I've had a Hartke HA head for a good 17 years of my musical life. It's been my tonal benchmark for my bass duties and while it still works well after nearly 2 decades of gigging abuse, I felt it's time to retire the old workhorse (or at least leave it studio exclusive). And rehearsals for my...

    I want to start changing the Chrome Hardware on my LTD ST 203 FR to Black and later on replacing the crap FR Special by a Gotoh one. Starting slow here so Nut will come first. Now my issue is... the Nut says R1 and the measures are like 41.9 mm (42 basically)... but the approximate measures...

    I need some help/ideas figuring out what pickups I should put in my RG350DX. Here's what I've been considering... Neck: Dimarzio Liquifire or Air Norton Bridge: Dimarzio Crunch Lab, Tone Zone, D-Sonic, Super Distortion, Steve's Special So...I'm not really a tone chaser, so that is making...

    Hi Guys, I have an Eastwood guitar that I had bought a little while back and it has some pretty cheap shitty humbuckers as standard so am wanting to exchange them with some other aftermarket ones. I am thinking about EMG's as they seem to be highly recommended and seem a good price. Now the...

    Does anyone know where can I get a Floyd Rose Original 1000 Whammy Bar replacement? I tried ordering from FloydRose.com and they're charging US$40 for shipping irregardless inside or outside of USA. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Hey I got some tubes to replace for my 6505+ 112 combo, I'm suppose to put this Tung-sol in slot 1 and the Sovtek in slot 5, but I don't know which is which, I can only find this diagram fro 6505+ 120w version, which shows the 5 preamp tubes and which way the power tubes are. But in the combo...

    Not gonna try and type out the whole story on my phone, but suffice to say my bass needs a new bridge. I've done a fair amount of searching online and haven't found much good info. It seems that direct from Ibanez or a dealer is the only way to buy the stock part. Wanting to avoid that...
