    You know if you don't like a guitar or a brand move on to what you like. Most her are proud of the guitar they chose to play and don't need to here it being cut down and picked apart. Just a proud Epi players two cents Mik B)

    The Sta-Tite vintage on my DR500MCE are not very good there 18:1. They have a nylon bushing in them that wears out. I'm on my second and last set the guitar is a 2011 model and if this set doesn't last longer than the last its Graph Tec Ratio next. Mik B)

    Thanks for the reply I find it strange though with all the DR500MCE's that they sold since 2011 (that is the year mine was built) that mine is the only one with the bushings wearing out. Since I made the first post it has been to a very good luthier who I have used for years he said the set up and everything is still good since he saw it last year. He thinks as I do not a good place to put nylon so now I'm going to make new bushings from brass. Thanks for letting me rant Mik B)
  5. In Topic:Masterbilts and Low Humidity

    I have a Masterbilt 500MCE I use the Oasis Plus brown and yellow in the sound hole and the blue and yellow standard in the case. If the humidity gets over 60% I take the case one out until it goes back down to 45% or so but the sound hole stays in all the time year round. When I first got this guitar my tech friend who has helped me for over 35 plus years said get a good sound hole humidifier and leave it in there all the time. Been all over Canada and the US with this thing traveling in our motorhome I have had 0 problems. Olie is correct the salt test works great to check your hygrometer. Mik B)

    Mik-- It is a heck of a job. I didn't do it myself, but had a buddy who was in luthiery school at the time do it. Send me your email address at and I'll forward the email he sent me in which he described everything he did and how he did it. It's quite extensive. His work improved the sound.
