awesome. your guitar looks great. glad you're enjoying her as well.
Thanks just goes to show Epis or any other guitar can feel just as good as higher end guitars,but i bet you guys already know that
You're a lucky man Hectgore, not only did Roman make a good guitar great, we also got to see how it's done. Wish we all had access to someone like Roman, sadly luthiers like him are very thin on the ground especially round here!! Oh well, this thread has at least given me the confidence to have a go at it myself.
Congrats Hectgore on a great guitar and Roman for a job well done.
Thanks alot!Guitar plays great,wish there was a bunch of roman clones running around so everyone had easy access to himI was also very interested in how Roman works on his setups so it was nice to have a documentary of the process.
Amen to that Hectgore.
This has got to be one of the best threads I've seen so far here, many thnx Roman,
shows a lot about you taking time to help so much, not everyone would do it. Again thnx.
hey Roman heres a question.When i change the strings i may want to go to 10-52 territory ,think there called low top heavy bottoms or something.Would this hurt my intonation or neck bow?
Another question,what strings did you string my epi with?
The Loc-Tone bridges aren't as bad as the older ones but those Gotoh imports can't be beat. Best $30 spent.
Yeah im gonna be switching the bridge out soon,which gotoh should i be looking at?
You will be fine and if you need any tweeks, bring it in, I'll do it free of charge.
D'adarrio .10 to .46
Nice work and nice thread Roman. A good friend of mine told me a long time ago that you have to give it away to keep it. Apparently you have learned this truth. Thanks for the great thread!
Is the string resting on the plectrum or is there a gap? I can just fit 2 green (.88mm) dunlop picks between my low E and 12th fret. Does that sound overly high to anyone?
The string is resting on the pick.
Overly high is a matter of personal opinion. If it is too high for you............it is.
That is a hell of a good tip, I've never thought of using cowhide!
this is one of the most interesting threads ive had the pleasure of reading. thanks a million roman.
I agree. An excellent thread. Many thanks to Roman.
So how much would it cost for a setup like that? I might be willing to send my guitar over.
Thats exactly how i set mine lol..
It's not high according to Gibson, but i do keep my treble quiet high for their standards. They recommend 1.1 mm or so and i keep mine at ~1.25 mm. Its all about personal preference and how you play. I cant bend strings at all with a really low action.
This is one hell of a great thread...I got an old epi special Im gonna practice on!!!
