    Not that I plan to buy another 7, never got along with the ones I've owned. 20201118_072118 by SR, on Flickr
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Looking for suggestions on guitars that have a Floyd Rose and a thicker neck. I really prefer my Gibson necks over anything else, but it seems to be quite difficult to find something with a similar neck profile that also has an FR on it, while being under $1k. I've looked at the FRX systems...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Posting because I remember we had a thread where it was brought up a while back sort of tangentially. Drew's Suhr thread I think, of course, it wasn't the solution in that case, but on a lot of older basswood guitars from the 80s it is necessary. I've never found it a problem on other woods, but...

    So, pretty self-explanatory in the title. Basically I just bought a PRS SE Custom 24 and I want to make it dive only since I don't pull up on the bar. What would be the best way to go about this? Links and videos are more than welcome and thank everyone in advance.
  5. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I've had a few of these through my workshop in the last couple of years, and I fucking hate them. It's fine if the customer wants it blocked, but to have it fully floating with anything higher than 9s is practically impossible. I've fitted them with 10s in standard for a guy once, and that was...

    Customised RGD2127z. Locking nut removed. Proto AVH stopbar installed. Locking tuners installed. Neck pickup and switch filled. Can still faintly see the pickup route fills, but only under certain light. Just needs a pickup and wiring. Finish is a lot more purple IRL. £500 ONO shipped in the UK.
  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Trying to decide on a guitar with a trem and HSH setup. Does the JEM Jr have more trem travel distance than the RG 450 DXB? I just put a Gotoh GE1996t on my jackson warrior JS32 and it does stay in tune way better and I love the feel of the fine tuners but theres not enough travel distance when...

    so I was given an RG350EX recently. its got an edge III trem on it. I want to be able to use the thing for pitch up and down but it goes out of tune like crazy after 3 or 4 uses. The first thing I did was change the strings to 9-42 since thats what I typically play with and man, getting it all...

    On a super tight budget, restoring my very first guitar which I've just got back off my nephew after about 11 years (totally forgot I gave it to him to learn on!) FR Specials, Schallers, that kind of thing. Can't afford OFR money, unless you're prepared to practically give it away. Must be black.
  10. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Long story short, I have a Super Wizard neck from a Prestige Saber in need of a body and a bridge. I'm refinishing the body and I've already got guts, so condition of either from a doner is unimportant. S470s go for dirt cheap, I just had unlucky timing on the three I tried for. That said, I'm...

    I need a cheap trem spaced humbucker to thrown in a Jackson Dinky I have so I can sell it. Black with black pickup ring preferred.
  12. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So I'm doing my normal post-new-guitar disassembly and cleanup of the 2027, and at least one of the screw holes for the trem claw was stripped, the other not far behind. I did the usual repair, jamming a toothpick and wood glue in there, and now I'm waiting for it to set. Before I put it all...
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, I haven't posted any updates on the thread about my JTV-69 but the synopsis is that I ordered the repair parts for a fair price and in the meantime, I'm really digging this guitar and expecting it to stick around for a while. That said, I've been noodling on it a lot while I work on my...

    So after buying (of course) yet another floating guitar instead last time, I still would like a nice hardtail. :lol: What's out there, again!? :woohoo: $1500 or less would be spiffy. Legit, actual hardtails. TOMs, Hipshots, etc.
  15. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Ok, so I went over my RG3120TW last night, and fixed MOST of the issues without issue; the truss rod is close to where I want it, the tone pot was actually loose but is now fixed, and the trem arm holder is tightened down again. The two issues I want some input before I tackle, though: 1)...
  16. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I have a Charvel model 4 that I've had lying around for a few years. It's a really nice player but a bit neglected so I want to give it some tlc and get it back into nice condition. The wiring is a little noisy so I want to bring it to a guy to get replaced soon too. The bridge on it is a JT6 I...

    Managed to get the string block sorted, but can't find a stockist for the trem arms anywhere, and it's typical Ibanez proprietary crap so nothing else will fit. Even the arm holder and its hole are designed so that no alternative can be used :roll2:
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I've just picked up a strat body as I've never owned one and decided to put together a partscaster and I need some advice from you fine chaps on trems. The spacing on the screws is 56mm (which I think is US vintage spec) and I don't fancy a 6 point trem. I was going to get a gotoh 510 style...

    While in the process of re-stringing and cleaning up an Ibby S that I'm going to list FS for a buddy, we found that we couldn't get the E or A bridge blocks to release the string. Hell, we can't even turn the screw to release the blocks. We've tried WD40 and some mild heating with a soldering...
