I was under the assumption that the nuts on the 2009 and newer LP specials and juniors were changed from the corian to the nylon as they were on the R9's etc. Am I mistaken on this? Because I bought a LP special a couple months ago brand new (2011) and it has corian. Or did the custom shop...
As is always the case, the search yeilded no results.
So, could someone tell me what the 1950's era abr-1 bridges were made of? I have seen some talk about faber and callahan replacements and I wonder how they compare with the stuff that came on a vintage LP. Or how a historic abr-1 compares...
Saturday I got my first helicopter ride and it wasn't quite what I had hoped it would be...:shock:
I'm doing fine and am already home with one new stent installed. Minimal damage to my heart. I am lucky to be alive. I'm only 50 but my life will now take on a new style and new meaning. Time to...
A photographic progression:
2010 R8 Lemonburst. It doesn't show in the pics but it has a little figuring. But what is really sweet is that it weighs 8lbs 10 oz. It sounds fantastic. The new nylon 6/6 nut is done right. I have never seen a nut on any historic filed this well. Plus because...
Last night my Braun electric razor gave me a fit. The on off switch stuck on. I could not shut that thing off! So I put it out in the hall and let it run down the battery.
My question is: what is your favorite brand of razor? I gotta go shopping soon.
That's what I am doing today.:) And my incoming package is 35 miles away from here now with a delivery date for tomorrow. 40 minutes and I could pick it up but no, I gotta wait for the brown truck to do its thing.
I tried searching to see if there are any differences between the R8 and R9 spec wise for the '09 and '10's but came up empty handed.
I have found the listed R9 changes but I don't know how the R8's compare. Did the R8's get all the appointments the R9's got?
I always assumed that Ronnie Montrose used the stolen burst on the first Montrose album. Obviously not as the guitar in question was lost about a year before the Montrose album was released.
Does anyone know what he used on that record?
Are the Historic backplates (control cavity and switch cavity) accurate?
I already know the answer to this one, at least in the case of the control cavity. A definate NO!
The switch cavity plate I don't know yet.
I do have info on this subject but before I reveal what I've learned...
Historic Accuracy part 2. How accurate, or inaccurate are the M-69 pickup rings used on the historic series as compared to the original 1950's bursts and customs?
I know that the color of the new rings is not correct but what about the rest of the attributes? Dimensions, plastic type etc...
