    Epi LP bridge leaning backwards

    Need help with some ideas to straighten up an Epi LP bridge that is leaning backwards towards the tailpiece. (This guitar is 15 years old, not a warranty issue).

    What's the deal with all that treble?

    I'm getting some killer tones out of a Peavey Classic 50. What baffles me is the amount of treble living inside the beast. I have to roll back treble quite dramatically also on the guitar. Bass and Treble noon-ish, but treble really low...and it gets super juicy and rich. Terrific really, nice...

    Gibson hardcases, Lifton vs TKL

    To my knowledge, Lifton is the only case today that comes with headstock wedge pads. These are removable foam pads without lining, there's one under the headstock and one over the headstock. In the 90s and a few years past the millennium the brown TKL cases had one permanent headstock wedge pad...

    ABR-1 conversion post off-set

    -The common ABR-1 conversion post inserts from Faber and Callaham etc are not off-set. This means that an original Gibson ABR-1, a Tonepros AVR-1 or any bridge true to the original ABR-1 dimensions won't fit, since its post distance is narrower than the Nashville bridge. -Are there off-set...

    Control knobs height adjustment

    I was just about to order a set of reflector knobs when I was informed that the ”vintage style” knobs has a flange which prevents them from being mounted flush with the body top. This is the vintage correct profile of the top hats. I prefer the knobs to be flush with the body because I...

The guitar is very stable and plays perfect, so I have no immediate plans to turn the TR in order to find out. Instead I’m turning to...
