    We all like to learn from our mistakes, but it's more convenient to learn from others' so here you go :lol: I plugged and redrilled the holes on the neck for my current Falchion project, did a test fit with the screws and then came the hitch... The last one didn't budge at all because I didn't...

    PCGuitars who sells "Ibby" replacement necks... What's up with this? The holes are off center. OR... Are they supposed to be like this on Ibanez necks? I'm google searching and have trouble finding any good pictures of laminated RG necks with through holes (most seems to be woodscrews)

    That djenty nu-metal cringey stuff in the other stuff forced me to post some ACTUALLY FUCKING GOOD stuff. :flex: Since she plays guitar and sings at the same time it's a bit unfair to compare to Jinjer but as long as she's not locked to the microphone she goes nuts! Like after 1:50 :metal...

    I was retuning my 570 because the trem was setting low. Upon doing this I also thought I'd check the intonation. So I ended up stripping the low e and now I can't move it. Obvious is that I'm going to need a new screw, but how am I going to get the old one out now?

    Hello all, thought I'd pick your collective brains of this one. One of the strap pins on my RG470 has drilled out and is now loose in it's hole and won't tighten. It's still attached to the guitar, but I don't trust it to hold the weight of the guitar without tearing out. I was thinking that...

    So, I've decided to go with the Freeway Ultra in my LP with the BKP Rebel Yell bridge and Mississippi Queen neck. The diagram states that the, "neck pickup should be the same magnetic polarity as humbucker's screw coil for hum-cancelling operation in positions 1 and 5." Free-Way 3X3-05...

    Recently I purchased a BC Rich 7 string v, and I purchased strap locks for it, I purchased the Dunlop ones. When installing the screw at the back of the guitar i noticed that it would only go about 3/4 of the way in. I tried to use force, but i almost ended up stripping the screw. I know the...

    Assuming Cheap Jackson doesn't suck, I'll want some locking tuners for it. Doesn't look like Hipshots will fit - anyone know offhand which will? I don't want to deal with drilling a new hole and having the old one showing if I can avoid it.

    Right I'm giving up on Reaper now because the output is just being a bitch and not working, I've tried everything and nothing seems to help. I got a free install CD with my interface for Sequel 3. Does anyone know much about it? Because I really don't want to install it to find there are loads...

    I've read 50 books this year. If you've watched an entire season of True Blood, some shitty reality show or spent that time obsessing over your kill:death ratio, you can start feeling inferior to me right about now. https://www.goodreads.com/user_challenges/786082?page=1 :crooks:

    I have a ZR trem on my Ibby S2170 and the nut/hex screw thingy that raises/lowers the bridge on the bass side has shattered. My second S model, and this is the second time its happened fucking dick hardware SMH:noplease:. Any idea where I could get a replacement that won't take me 4 weeks as it...

    Most of my trem guitars are the Schaller style, so I can't set intonation with the all mighty *KEY*. This is solved by using one of the OFR style screws off one of my two guitars that have that kind...but I don't like taking them every time I need to intonate and I don't have a spare on in the...

    I found these great pickups that some guitar shop in Michigan makes, they are modeled after the name brand pickups, but they only cost $40 for both, new! I have a pair, and have heard others, they sound great. If anybody wants to try a set, here is a link. Let me and others on the forum know...
