    I feel kind of like the "prevents theft" thing is a little overblown, since a committed thief breaking into your house the steal guitars would most likely have a screwdriver to take the entire thing from the wall, but I also feel like it is suitably pretentious enough to be appealing on some...

    $300 shipped! Duncan Black Winter in the bridge, Stagmag in the neck. Tone pot is a push/pull coil tap yet the tone knob is eliminated otherwise. Volume knob is a bornes and the switch was upgraded as well but I can't remember what I used. The control cavity has also been shielded well. :yesway...

    I picked up a short scale Ibanez Mikro a while back for my kids to learn on, I'd like to make it into a decent player with some better parts. The nut and tuners are terrible as would be expected for it only costing around $160, it does not stay in tune at all to the point of being nearly...

    Swapped out the neck pickup which was a Dimarzio PAF 7 for a Duncan Distortion to match the bridge pickup. This involved modifying the mounting tabs of the pickup and cutting the pole pieces down so it would fit the Ibanez's shallow routes. It has black pole pieces, so it doesn't match exactly...

    I'm not touching the Lemonburst LP with the zebra '57s. That guitar is as perfect as anything I could ask for... it just sings. However, having compared the two, I find that I'd like the Lightburst Les Paul traditional to be a bit livelier, perhaps a bit hotter, and will probably go with...

    This is mainly a feeler as I really love this guitar, but I just don't think baritones are my thing. It's a 2013 model, i've had it a total of 3 months, never gigged, it's in perfect condition. I switched out the pickups and pickguard it now has a BG Pickups PUF humbucker (custom wound with...

    So I've had this Strat for 6-ish years and it's been my only guitar for most of those 6 years. Over the years I've found things I've wanted to change and I now have the time and skills to do so. Plan of attack: 1. Remove the middle pickup and associated tone pot 2. Put volume pot where old tone...

    I passed a couple emails back and forth with Adam about this, actually - he says just include a note in your description saying you need a seventh for a seven string, and he'll toss it in. I also suggested he swing by here, as he strikes me as the sort of guy who would fit in well with the...

  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, I got them in the mail today. Tonally? Tough to say if there's a bit change here - maybe a slightly crisper attack and sustain seemed a little longer, but tough to say for sure. Call it inconclusive. However, Floyd Upgrades markets these as primarily being an improvement in strength, and...

    FU High-Performance Bridge [FU-HPBBB1] - $249.95 : FloydUpgrades.com!, Floyd Rose Tremolo Upgrades Anybody tried these? They look awesome. For around $300 you get a nice bridge with an oversized brass block, brass claw, and noiseless springs. Seems like a pretty nice setup. I am considering...

    I call this sale the "Dream Crusher", since I guess I really don't want Drew's Strat anymore. :( I have to, unfortunately, part ways with my Strat. It's a fucking awesome guitar and sounds fantastic, but my picking hand just does not agree with the pickup placement on Strats, apparently. I...
