2003 R8 volume control info and guitar stand question


Recommended Posts


The volume control on my 2003 R8 has a strange taper. Were these audio or linear taper as standard fitment?


Also, can anyone recommend a guitar stand that is compatible with the finish on this guitar? I hear the regular ones from guitar center will damage it though some chemical action.

Hercules stands have ruined a few VOS guitars that I have. Especially the T.V. colored specials and juniors.


Interesting! According to their website they claim to be 'laquer safe', but checking the Thomann.de website, where I bought mine, they now state categorically "Not for Nitro Laquer". Must have had compliants!


Can anyone add to this?
