    My R8 has stiff pots... Is it safe to lube them?

    Depends on what the problem is .... If you use "contact cleaner " use "Deoxit D5" work great . If the pot needs Lube ( If any of you have opened up a "new" CTS pot you will find a RED lube in there. So It is Lubed by the maker . This is a proprietary made lube and can not be bought . I tried...

    OK , So no one posted it , I will . If you really want an R6 , and you find 1 you like ,less the neck spec. buy it , test it and keep it if all else works , less the neck . At that point , take it to a known ,reputable Tech shop that does guitar mods of this type and work with them to get the...

    FS: 2019 60th Anniversary R9 - Green Lemon Fade VOS - 8 lbs 1oz - BRAND NEW

    WoW great looking Axe. I can't understand why this hasn't moved . And , as difficult as it is to find a Lightweight LP that looks as good as this 1 does , it should have jumped to someone fast . Guys , imo these Ultra Lightweight LP's are worth every penny . Different then standard weighted...

    CC4 Sandy Aged Price VS Clapton Beano Burst VOS

    Can you test the Beano ? If not , can you test an R0 to give yourself an Idea of it's neck feeling in your hand ? If you can deal with the R0 neck and from what you've posted above , It appears you are somewhat a collector/player . Welcome to the club ..... IMO, even though the Beano's neck...

    Is the 2018 case too tight at the D-String tuner?

    If you're wanting "protection" , I'd buy (and have bought 1 for a LP RI and 1 for a 335 RI) this . IMO , for the $$$ it's a great value . Other can be had ,but they will cost you big time ..... Used mine to get both guitars to Brazil that were " imo ,worth " buying these cases for . 3...

    CME historic guitars: whats the deal?

    FYI The "Carmelita neck type" is the standard on all '2019" '59's CS LP Standard RI .I don't know about the Other stuff , only that I've seen in past years a wide array of weights on their guitars . Most lighter weighted ,to me, seem to appear early in the new years and its a hit or miss type...
