Hi all, I have a B Stock Epiphone Jack Casady bass that played really well for a couple of years. I had never had it professionally setup. Earlier this year, I noticed some fret buzz/strange rattling around the 7-9th frets on the G string. At the same time, I noticed that the screws around the pickup and pick-guard were a little loose, so I figured that something might be rattling because of those. I grabbed my electric screwdriver and tightened them all as far as they'd go. The result? My pickup went from its regular sunken position to bulging outwards, blocking all strings and making the instrument unplayable. The funny thing is that when I loosened the screws back to where they were, the pickup continue to protrude only on one side. One of the screws very quickly became stripped and wouldn't move at all. Has anyone had any experience with this? I'll probably end up taking it to a tech for a fix and tune-up, but I was wondering if there is some more obvious (and cost efficient) solution that I'm currently unaware of. Thanks for reading!
Ciao a tutti, ho ereditato una ES335 Studio dell'88 ma purtroppo è notevolmente "cannibalizzata" (vedete le foto sotto). Ho già chiarito molti particolari ma, prima di procedere al "restauro", Vi porgo 2 domande: 1. La Gibson mi dice che non hanno più il backplate come pezzo di ricambio, dove posso trovarlo? 2. Sempre la casa madre mi dice che in origine aveva 2 dirty finger come pickup ma visto che ne devo montare di nuovi Vi chiedo se avete consigli. Alcuni dicono i 498, altri i burstbucker, altri ancora i '57 classic... Voi? Attendo Vostri suggerimenti, grazie mille a tutti.
