    Aging an Uncovered 'Bucker?

    I have success aging metal parts with PCB Etchant. But I have an uncovered humbucker I'd like to age for my HM. Has anyone aged an uncovered humbucker? How did you do it? Pics appreciated.

    A tale of two Melody Makers

    I had a Melody Maker. It was a fun guitar. I ditched the stock pickup and installed a height adjustable soapbar P-90 and gold reflectors.

    2020 SG Standard '61 - Frets Glued?

    It's brand new, not pulling the frets. Plan is to have my luthier wick in CA glue if Gibson isn't gluing them in. Unnecessary if they use fish glue...just need confirmation.

    Just got a new SG Standard '61. Does anyone know if Gibson glues the frets in on these? And if so, what kind of glue is used? Thanks!

    Replacement Cream Pickup Rings - Edwards

    I've sanded rings before, but the other day I tried to sand CreamTone rings and messed them up. The Creamtone surface is very thick. I think that's why they were so temperamental. I have a set of montreux rings sitting around, but I'm a little trigger shy to attempt to sand them given my last...

    Replacement Cream Pickup Rings - Edwards

    EDIT: I give up. Now I am on the search for white curved bottom rings....I'll dye them. Anyone know of a source? Greetings all. The banana pudding yellow pickup rings on my Edwards are driving me insane. I tried black rings--ugly. Does anyone make decent cream color plastics for MIJs? The...

    HM Regrets?

    It was. I had every intention of keeping it as a goldtop, but Kim from HM called me after stripping it and said we have to do a burst. He was right.
