    About nylon nuts

    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...

    Original ABR-1 metal composition?

    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...

    2010 R8 Lemonburst

    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...

    Electric razors

    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.

    What are the opinions of the luthiers here. Set the intonation with the harmonic at the 12th fret or fingering the note at the 12th fret?

    Have you ever tracked an incoming shipment?

    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.

    2009-10 spec differences between R8 & R9

    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?

    What guitar did Montrose use?

    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?
