Its the third time ive installed a Custom 5 in a guitar (all different guitars) and each time ive not liked it (dont know why i keep trying it). I find its lacking something. So im going to mag swap and turn it into either a custom...

    I was in Hawaii way back in December last year for holiday and meeting up with family members. Of course I was also scouting music stores hunting for bargains. I ended up with 2 cool things from a small store in Waikiki. First was the J-Rockett Lenny booster. The other is an early 90s Ibanez...

    Ok folks, I don't knot if I'm posting this in the right section but here it goes; I recently purchased a mini head (Blackstar HT metal 5H) and about a week after the preamp tube that powers the drive channel died on me. On many guitar forums people say that the stock tubes are crap but I didn't...

    Finally got enough downtime to break out my soldering iron and camera and shoot some A/B/C video of these three sets. More commentary later, but I actually like them all for different reasons.

    First of it all, it would be free. I currently have an 07 Loomis which has a german OFR and I have a Jackson SLAT3-7 with an FRT-1000 on the way. I plan on selling the Loomis so I'm wondering if I should swap the bridges and keep the OFR on the Jackson. Since the Loomis only had the OFR in...

    Title sums it all up really. Is it necessary to swap the posts as well?
  8. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I am thinking about swapping out the Floyd on my Charvel San Dimas for a Schaller. I've heard good things. Also, I want to change the chrome to black. Are they direct replacements? What about the nut? How do I know which size locking nut to get? I've read R2 or R3. Tips are appreciated.

    So, whilst swapping out the horrible powder grey hardware out of my RGT, I thought I should also take the opportunity to rid myself of the quite frankly shitty Edge II and replace it with either an Lo-Pro Edge (in matching black :yesway: but infinitely better than the E-II) or an Edge Pro (not...

    This didn't really need a tutorial since it's pretty damn basic, but I had a camera, a guitar, some Schallers and some boredom, so I figure - why the hell not? The PRS SE stock tuners are absolutely AWFUL. If you own one, you want a set of Schallers. They are a direct replacement, no drilling...

    No, didn't think so, but it was worth a shot :lol: I just think they'd look cool with the chrome hardware in my PRS. If anyone, by any stretch of the imagination, wants to trade for some standard black ones (81/85) let me know please!

    Looking for a way in mac to do something kind of odd. I've got 2 screens, and the second is meant to be swapped up to another 27" screen soon at the same resolution. What I'd like to be able to do, is hit a hotkey, and move all of my windows on screen 1 to screen 2 and vice versa. Basically, as...

    Hi, I own a Custom 24 and thought recently about swapping the pickups for bkp's. I'm actually ok with the tone itself, but I feel the pickups lack output and dont feel that good for shred stuff, could be also related to their voicing when I think about it. The thing is I like alot the splitted...

    In the words of 'Sherm, there's not many things cooler than new life for an old dog. My ancient EX (my first real guitar as a kid) is far and away my favorite guitar. Around ~1992 or so, I had a Schaller trem put in it that's still there today: Other than the bridge, everything is stock...

    Swapping an Ibanez LoPro Edge for an OFR Ask ten metal guitarists what their favorite trem is, and you'll probably get ten different answers. Well, maybe not quite that many, but there's quite a diversity of high quality trem systems on the market, each with their own strengths and...
