Got a used one of them.
Having a few problems with the locknut and am considering my options. (I used to be a luthier up until about 5 years ago so no stranger to setups, etc).
The locknut bolt thread on the bass-side of the locknut seems to be stripped as the screw does not appear to catch the thread when the strings are loaded on (they're only 9's).
So here is the question.
Where can I get a new locknut from in the UK?
Is there any way of making this one work well (permenant) - I'm assuming not.
Will a 43mm locknut from an old OFR work just as well?
Is the tremolo on this axe directly replacable with a decent unit, i.e. a Schaller or an OFR?
Many thanks for help in advance.
