    Guitar Refinishing recommendations?

    I'm looking for a simple solid paint for a bolt on body. Can anyone recommend someone who is reliable? Seems a lot of guys I found online websites haven't been updated in awhile or they are WAY backed up. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Locking tuners post is very low - would you accept this?

    I was going to install a set of Gotoh SG360 locking tuners on my Ibanez RG. When I did, the tuner post is very low. The (online) dealer says it's fine, you only need one string wrap anyway. Eh. Would you accept this? The difference between the base of the original tuner to the bottom of the...

    Replace LP with PRS? Or something else? Or... ? ?

    I have been a rhythm guitarist and/or bass player most of my musical life. In the past 6 months have been delving into lead playing quite a bit. What I realized is I think I like BIG jumbo frets. Like on my PRS Custom 24 and Ibanez Jem. I have a LP Standard 50s. While I love the sound of...

    NGD: Possible problems with nut and/or truss Rod - LP Special

    I picked up a new Special this weekend. With the stock strings, it sounded really blah when I got home so I put 9's on it like I do on all my guitars. I got some buzzing up and down the neck on the low E and a little at the A. I raised and lowered the action and get the buzz no matter what...

    Swapped tuners w/ extra holes - reduced value? Yea or no?

    When you are looking at a LP with swapped tuners and there's the extra holes in the back of the headstock - how much do you reduce the value? I'm checking out a late 70s Norlin this weekend. The tuners are swapped out (but the originals included) so it has the extra holes. He says they are...

    What % off do you offer on used guitars? Generally...

    For local music stores , say used and "vintage" but under $3k, what percent do you usually offer off the asking price? I know, depends on how long it's been there, what it is etc. I usually deal with private parties and the big stores and haven't used a smaller shop in 30 years. I have my eye...

    2019 Standard 50s/60s vs (whatever year) R9/R0

    For those who have played (and spent some time) with both, what do you think - tone, playability etc? I have both right now - a 2019 50's Standard and a 2014 R0. No VOS or Murphy or anything else fancy. I'm thinking one has to go as they seem to overlap. I paid $1000 more for a used R0 and...

    2014 R0 - logo and truss cover questions.

    I have a 2014 R0 I just recieved. The logo on the headstock has an "outline" around it. Think like the Fender logo waterslide. It's hard to see - I tried to photograph - but if you tilt it in the light just right you can see. It is inlayed though. Normally, I would be concerned, but I...
