Yup, sometimes my writing is a bit unclear
Neat, man. Loved the occasional smoke haze on the foreground.
Thanks for taking all that time to photograph and type all this. As if working on the guitar itself wasn't enough!
My car engine runs 30% quieter and smoother after the car has been through a five-star car wash with hot wax and blow dry. I swear...
Thanks for sharing, Roman! Nice job.
Great thread, thanks for sharing. Quick question: On the headstock repair, did you fill in the cracks with something before spraying? If so, what?
Nice Roman!!!! you are an inspiration every time!!!
I got one question regarding the use of heat gun over the inlay, does the heat only heats the inlay or do the frets and binding get heat up too? especially on the lower frets.
At what temperature do u set the heat gun?
i would buy a roman rist book. and i would even keep it ON TOP of my erlewine books
Was cruising through net looking for some info about my LP and got distracted by this thred. Man, what a treat! Great info. Obviously, I'll be back. Will look for the right thred before firing off questions. Thanks
As always, some great info roman
I am wondering however, with setting the bridge raduis, how would roller rockers be adjusted to the right hight?
You are stuck with the radius there, sorry.
Ok, Good to know, thanks
Great thread and really good work!!
Absolutley amazing thread Roman. I can't express my graditude for all of the information and support you have given on these forums. Thank you for giving me the courage to attempt to build a guitar.
Excellent, excellent info. One question. What are you using to buff out the scratches in the nitro and what are you using to do it, I.E. what product and are you rubbing it out by hand? I have some spots on mine where it looks like the previous owner rubbed it with dry paper towel or some such thing which I'd like to try and erase. I tried some Meguiars Scratch X 2.0, but it just polished the scratches. Any info would be much appreciated!
Hi Lefty, if you look at the pic in post 05-04-2010, 06:21 PM you will see a couple of bottles of polishing products. Was wondering the same thing myself. Cheers
Thanks - yes, saw that. I assume he's rubbing it out by hand?
I was considering doing the bridge mod to my Epiphone G400. Being a G400 is not as thick as an LP how long should the screws be?
These will work just fine
hey roman! i was checking out some pics of my favorite band wolfmother, and i came across a close-up picture of lead man andrew stockdale's guitar. it seems his luthier implemented tail piece studs to clamp the bridge in place.any increased benefit of using them, or could it just be because of his vibrola?
