  5. Off-topic / Miscellaneous
    So some guy on Craiglist keeps trying to sell a Jay Turser SG style guitar and his ad keeps getting flagged and he gets mad and types explative laced ads and those get flagged and so on.

    Hi people! Since the last time I posted on my previous thread, I have experience a new problem with the Edge III: when I pull up on the arm, the strings are perfectly tuned, but when I dive down, they go out of tune a little bit. What could be the problem with the dang trem? Is it the springs...

    I have for sale a practically mint condition 2007 Fender Telecaster made in the US of A! It has one tiny ding on the lower edge of the body but that's it.

    I've seen a lot of times, Jimi Hendrix being the first, that some guys simply remove the cover of the springs cavity on the back of the guitar. What's the advantage of doing this?
  15. Classified Ads: Guitars and Gear
    I have a Digitech Rpx400, I've been trying to sell it or trade it for awhile but you guys probably have insanely expensive gear so thats probably why no one has bought it yet. standing8count was going to pm me if he ever got an edge trem he didn't need to trade for it but I haven't heard from...
