I was looking at picking up the humbucker version of the BFG Les Paul, and I got distracted, and somehow ended up buying this....

I have been lusting after the LP DC jr, and the Pelham SG Special also, but those will have to wait...

The robos say something about improved gears.... I’ll give them a shot. If they don’t work out I’ll end up putting in a set of 3-3 split shaft tuners.

They are attached to a 2017 HP Flying V....

She will be a welcome addition...

Beautiful V, but I never would have guessed you would have gone for robots... how do they work with a tremolo?

I went more for the guitar than the robotuners, but they will get a fair shake and torture.

Iím not planning to put a tremolo on this one, but I could switch these robos onto my 2004 specifically to test the stability, but that seems too much like work...

I didnít read the charger right for the robo battery, and the battery died mid string change, but they load just like split Klusons so Iím at home with them.

The new and improved tailpiece posts really suck ***, I need to see if regular posts will fit. What a ******* horrible concept.... it looks like the bridge posts are similar....

Knobs are better now, my fat fingers roll off the gumdrops.
