  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi all, I bought a cheap RG, recently did a full scallop, and love it. I made the judgement call to do the leveling after the scalloping in case the scallop operation changed the shape of the neck when under string tension. I will use a home-made neck jig to simulate string tension in the...

    I've wanted a RG since I was 13 years old, consequently after listening to Vai for the first time. For some reason, it just never happened and then I started spending all my money on fast cars and motorcycles. My MIJ strat's frets have been pretty bad for years and became flat out unplayable. So...

    Hi, i just bought a second hand neck and put it on. I was told it from a rg570. Basically im getting a few dead notes and i can see that its caused by some frets sitting slightly lower than the rest, and quite alot of the frets seem to have raised in the middle so there is a slight gap between...

    Up for sale is a 88' Strat Plus in Vintage White with an Alder body. When I got this guitar I loved it so much I had to get another Strat Plus. Originally it had a white pickguard, standard two point fender bridge, white knobs, and a Wilkinson Roller nut. I got a Strat Plus Deluxe that had a...

    This really could be a thread about a few topics, but mainly I'd like to know how to get my high frets fixed on my new RG350 DX. I'm not all that upset about it, just need to know what common practice is for fixing high frets. The 8th fret is high enough that it completely chokes playing the...

    While at GC today, I played a $2099 Suhr Tele. Then playd a $149 Squire Tele. The diffenece? A whole bunch of money. That's it. The tone was a little different. But not $1800 different. Not even different enough for the average person to notice. And get this. The Squire was set up and...

    Well, in my really slow quest for becoming a guitar tech, I feel it's time to start fretting. I know I should start on simple stuff, and of course, on cheap/disposable necks. The thing is, I've looked around and basically I've found 2 radically different approaches: 1.- Stew Mac: "buy this...

    Picked up a 93 Strat Plus Deluxe last week. I am in love with Lace Sensor Pickups. Thought I would share this good 3bay story with this guitar. I got it with a buy it now. Seller said with BIN it was free shipping, due to how it had it set up I could not delete the shipping cost but he quickly...

    I found a used american made strat with rosewood fingerboard. It has the more modern blocky bridge saddles though. Based on the serial number, it appears to be an early to mid nineties manufacture date. The strat is up for sale for $625, and I've been wanting an american made strat but am...

    A well known and respected guitar tech in my area installed an Air Zone in the bridge position and Air Norton in the neck position of my Schecter Custom Shop while also setting up action, fret leveling and crowning, etc. The pickups have some serious problems. The guitar is just the 2...

    Firstly, yea, I know it's a Squier and those of you with higher end guitars may cast a dubious eye on this project, but hey - it's for a friend and it's for fun. Like many of you, I'm a guitar mechanic that loves working on them as much as playing them. Specs: 1992 Squier Strat. Made in...

    I'm thinking about buying a guitar from him, mostly because I'm interested in the work he could do setting it up and getting it playing perfectly (with frets leveled and guitar shimmmed and all parts cleaned up and in perfect condition and so on).... I just wanted to see how many of you have...
