I replaced the stock stop tail piece with the Tone Pros aluminum T1ZSA nd am VERY happy with how it sounds. However I am still wondering and have two questions:
- Is there any difference between the stock studs and the pair that comes with the Tone Pros that would make it worth swapping them out?
- What are the views on adding the locking posts?
I am a bit of a tinkerer. I have an 02 Standard that I popped in the RS pots and Jensen caps (tried Hovlands and found them too sheer?) with some unpotted Duncan 59s from Specialty Guitars. WHAT a difference!
OK 3 questions!
I am planning to refinish the top from the light burst to a Heritage Cherry burst. I want to dye the top a little first to get the flame to POP. What have folks used for that purpose (color/proportions mix ie some red, brown, green dyes) and should I rent the spray gun for the lacquer or do the folks with experience thing the ReRanch or Stew Mac canned lacquers are good?
Also what technique or methods have the finishers used to scrape the bindings after a color coat?
Thanks in advance
