  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    https://www.chubtoneguitars.com/ Been following this dude on Instagram for a while. Makes some sick rides. Not keen on some of the relic'd stuff, but his straight up Fender/Charvel-like models are sweet. This is the sort of guitar I've dreamed of since getting into the whole hot-rod thing...

    As you can see from the pictures, the truss rod has been moved down (or backwards, depending on your orientation), and is pressed hard into the bottom of the route. As such, I cannot get the truss rod wrench over the nut on the end. Stringing the guitar up increases the bow slightly, as well...

    It's awesome.

    So, will this be the next thing guitarists will obsess about? Personally I think it's a non-issue. There's sliiiight differences in the clips, anybody with decent ears can hear that. But nothing I would care about when choosing specs for a neck or something. I go for functionality. Side...

    Does anyone buy anything here, anymore? :lol: Anyways, don't tell the jerks on Reverb, but I'll let these go to ya'll for $575 for the DC-10, and $850 for the Splawn. That's dead-nuts what I paid for them (IIRC), and I totally listed them for more on Reverb :) Shipping from 39475. My NAD...

    This is where I've been getting my customized truss rod covers and poker chips... Truss Rod Covers - Custom Engraved - Page 1 - Philadelphia Luthier Tools & Supplies, LLC It looks like they offer parts that fit Ibanez, Schecter, etc. And yes, it's totally worth the $12 a piece having two...

    I have this Warmoth neck with a stripped truss rod and I have digged out the wood and drilled to make a little grip but NOTHING WORKS. What the hell am I supposed to do anymore? I can't get the truss rod to turn. I may have some super glue dipped that have made the truss rod stuck, but I'm...

    I did my first ever truss rod adjustment and mod at the same time. The neck on my Kramer Forum 1 had too much relief and the truss rod was already as tight as it could get. So, after talking to boots and some dudes on basstalk they recommended that I add a washer to the truss rod nut. So I...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys - As some of you know, I've been working with a Fender Hot Rod DeVille, trying to make it my own - trying to coax a slightly more aggressive rock/blues sound out of it. Tried a couple overdrives, etc., chasing that tone. I had some help from you guys looking at the setup Warren...

    OK I know this is a metal board, but figured I would post this just in case there are some other people that like Rod Stewart. I actually dig this little bit he does with different artists.
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    After picking up my U.S. Strat recently, I made the decision to lose the Japanese one. It's all part of a master plan to downsize / consolidate. Then... well, I dropped on a street corner and whored myself again. The MIJ Strat and $150 got me this. It's a Fender Hot Rod DeVille 212 in really...

    Did a monster cleanup and re-wire of my desk a while back to get rid of all the cables. The only wire still hanging out was my headphones, so I decided to build a headphone stand :) I got a life-size skull from China and a Soviet gas mask from Lithuania through ebay, and made a stand out of...

    I've had a Strat for many years which I've always played in standard tuning. Recently I've had to tune it to drop C for something I'm doing. I've obviously gone for a heavier gauge and have adjusted the saddles for the intonation. The problem is that while the intonation is fine at the 12th...

    How to adjust the average locking trem: - Take off lock nuts - Take off pads - Slack strings - Locate small screwdriver - Remove truss rod cover - Figure out which pipe wrench I need - Choose the wrong one - Try another one - Sweet, that's it! - Realize that I didn't slack the strings enough...

    Skip to 7:04 since it's just bullshit playing and what's important here is Soldano thoughts. He starts with a story about EVH. It seems like this would be the perfect kind of design for vintage style amps (mainly Marshalls) that rely on power amp distortion. I wonder why more Marshall style...

    I'm having some trouble with a bass a got new back in April. The neck has too much relief but the truss rod appears to be as tight as it will get. If I loosen the truss rod it does what it should and adds more relief. Fender specs say .012" / 0.3mm and I can only get it to about twice that...

    Hi, I have a JP7 with a roasted maple neck (Pao Ferro fretboard). I got the guitar about 8 months ago, and to my liking the action was a bit too low, and the neck was too straight, so I adjusted the truss rod a bit to get a little more bow in it and that also resulted in a higher action which I...

    It kinda looked like it was parked there to advertise, but I would have liked to see him load it up with mulch or something. :lol: Looks so cool, though. I'd love to have a car like this some day. Ratrod at work! by philbabbey, on Flickr
