  1. I wonder if for the $37 in shipping if it will be packed well so as not to endure any MORE damage....? stuff it in a brown bubble pack and stuff it in the drop box.
  2. Thats it....no more throw away pieces, I am going to post and sell everything on ebay. Anyone game...I have some old vintage rusty *** pickup screws from a Gibson once played by someone famous.... Hey, if you look close you can see the virgin Mary in that lower left corner....
  3. albeit, I play to test my mods. I mod to test my playing and I keep buying yeehaw because no one tells me not to.

  5. I am toying with a ZW that has a broken neck. Its a wash because the crack goes through the fret board, so a new neck is in order. The body looks in good shape, Serial checks out. What should I offer for the guitar? Asking price is $300 OBO.
  6. Apparently there are some BigsBy bold on's out there that will give you the Trem without all the hole cutting. Never used one before but in doing some looking around, there are many who have. Must have been a vintage thing....
  7. Unless someone knows of another way....here it goes. Get a router and template for the bridge....start cutting...when your done route all the way through the guitar and route a big hole in the back side for the springs. You'll basically put a big hole in the middle of your guitar, then search ebay for a used floyd rose trem system $100+-. Drill your screw holes and mount it. I guess the point I am getting to is that there are some guitars that already have this setup with much less hassle than its going to be to hack up a perfectly good LP. If your short on time, there is no short answer to getting this done. If your a Luthier...you could probably knock it out in a weekend, but a novice....a week at best cause your going to want to make it all straight and correct. I don't even know if hacking a big hole in the LP is even going to make it still sound like an LP....I would say for your time and effort, go buy a guitar with a Trem system already in it. honestly, you'll sleep better at night. Oh if you do not already have the tools....and the Trem, your going to be dumping half your money into the tools to do the job right...don't forget to have it setup professionally when your done...
  8. I wonder if the Fakes will follow suit......
  9. Hmmm, very good point The_Sentry. Take it back to basics....I have not done this in a long time, its always pedal on...max pedal settings and go from there. I'll try this tonight. your so right about a hole you'll never get out of. I feel that I am there...either my licks sounds are unappealing or they sound like some other lick sound I am tired of. So yes the reverse of adding more gear.....reset the gear you have and build from the bottom again. Another person just recently mentioned taking a weekday and taking over the amp tryout room at the local music store and try everything they have.....BYOG (bring your own guitar) and for their time at least buy a new set of strings or something to be fair. Thanks everyone....all advice has been great and now I feel like I have a new avenue to travel down and I am eager to get started. now about those college girls...!
  10. Good, so I am not crazy, I am not missing the train on trying to find this certain combo that makes all the effort worth it and I am not alone..... As I read the post strangely this quest for sound and for those who had it "once" sounds like a lot of college stories I have heard....."there was this one girl in college,,,lost her, but been looking ever since". I am searching for the open and air-y sound of Boston...late 70's. (well their sound didn't really change in the 80's)anyway, there are a few sounds I like, but Boston would make me happy and then again, there is this other side where heavily over driven, pinch harmonics and bends payed real fast provides a sound that comes damn close to "This other girl in college"..!
  11. No I am not turning my amp up too loud (is that possible..?) I am getting a headache from too darn many options.....the guitar, the pedal, the amp, the electronics, the pick, the hand motion, the cables, the type of speakers...good god man...... Then on the amp there are tones, levels, positions, volume, room placement and on the guitar there is tone, volume, wood type, pickup type, string type, fret positions.......its endless....... How long has it taken to get that sound you liked? Or are you still searching? and if you have "your sound" did you just model what someone else had (for equipment) and did that work for you...? at least I got one part of it right...the Epi LP because even if I never get the holly grail of sound, I am at lease certain that I am holding a guitar that could deliver it when the combination is correct.
