Re: When the truss rod doesn't do its job

Re: Neck-Thru Build Pics

Re: Causes of a sour tone?

Plus one on the tunomatic bridge can you use a jimmy clip or something simular to mute the strings after the bridge and after the nut? plus are you talking 70's classic rock distortion or high gain amp distortion? Because that type of gain magnifies all the bad stuff so that, what would not bother y...

Re: Neck-Thru Build Pics

Last guitar show I went to there was only one custom builder and he was priced so low I can not believe he built them they had to be from china. I can't get the wood and parts to build and sell for under $500.00, but his quality was pretty nice I have to admit. When I asked him how he could charge s...

Re: School me on pickup placement?

I had a friend who installed a 3rd pickup nearer the neck that sucked because it was way to boomy. he did not have any interest in putting one closer to the bridge because he had plenty of hi end. in the end he removed the 3rd pickup.
