    Body replacement for MIM standard?

    Will my MIM neck fit on all 4 bolt fender bodies? What about the bridge? There are so many fender models out there that the only variable i see in the bodies is the number of screws in the bridge. Either 2 or 6. I love my neck (custom treated) and pickguard (also custom) but the body itself...

    Hybrid Strings on Floyd Rose

    Will the hybrid strings affect stability on a Floyd Rose? I've always thought strings are designed to each have the same tension (9-42) and (10-46). I dont have time to try it yet but I'd like to know if anyone has experience with this. Cheers

    Delay Pedal Volume Drop

    I'm suddenly experiencing a huge volume drop when engaging the delay pedal.... But only when the pedal is in the effects loop. Worked fine until today. I've already checked the cables and power supply and changed the order of pedals and whatnot. It works fine in front of the amp too.

    Rocksmith? No, thank you

    I just tried Rocksmith on the Xbox One and it completely pissed me off. I'm always open to trying new things and figured I might be able to squeeze some things out of it. Has anyone tried it? First of all, the timing lag is horrendous. Hopefully I'm missing something because I'd hate to think...

    "Beano" Tom Murphy Aged

    I'm staying at a holiday rental and wound up at the owner's house. He has a Beano Tom Murphy Aged Les Paul in a glass case hanging on his wall. When I asked if he plays he just said "no I just thought this one was nice". He also had a Taylor "Builder's Reserve" on display.

    Pickups similar to Seth Lovers but...?

    I'm looking to put some pickups into my Epiphone Les Paul MIJ (open book headstock ;-) ). Currently I have a Seth Lover in the bridge but it's just not doing it for me. I like the mid range and the response but the highs are just well, too high. The problem is I can't get a tone that works...

    Gibson Quick Connect or Emerson pre wired system for MIJ Epi?

    I have a MIJ Epiphone (with the proper open book headstock) but the pickups are pretty bad. I'd want to upgrade all the wiring but am considering a Gibson quick connect system from Ebay. Either that or an Emerson pre wired system. Would either have issues fitting into the Epiphone?

    BR-EG Bridge

    This came in an Epiphone made in Japan just bought. The saddle slots look too small and sharp for me to feel comfortable with. What do you think?
