    It looks like a nice idea for a standard strat replacement. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1944695465/needle-guitar-vibrato-keep-your-guitar-in-tune-for/description

    I've come across a black w/black pickguard example of this model. It's got a three way switch, one volume pot, one tone pot, and the power rocker bridge. Seems like a standard Strat trem bar fits in there decently well. It's got "MADE IN JAPAN" stamped on the neck plate and the neck is...

    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...

    Kramer Neck-Hard to find 'Hockeystick' headstock, excellent condition, frets have very little wear. I believe that they stopped making these in 1986. Schaller tuning keys. The only reall flaw is that there are very small holes below each tuner where there were different keys previously...

    Okay, I know these are brand new and not even being sold yet, but I'm thrilled to finally be seeing some 24 fret S guitars being made... both the S5470 and the SV5470F seem very appealing to me, and I've already decided on selling my current guitar and buying one of them, but I don't know which...

    Quick question, are the trems on PRS like FR style double locking? Can they down tune easily without adjusting spring and bridge angels? thanks

    Anyone out there own one? I'm intrigued by all of the switching and was wondering how good the single coil sounds really are compared to a trusty strat? Also, how's the trem in terms of feel? Does the trem float or is it fixed against the body? How's the range? I've seen some really...

    got a jem, from 1990... I noticed that I must tune it several times before it stays in place... it stays in tune well, but when i do tune it if its a bit out, i have to tune it ... than tune it again... and again until they stay in place, because they keep going back once i tune them all. Why is...

    I was inspired by the radio today...Here's the thread: Name your three favorite VH songs (VH's covers are eligible) and Roth/Hagar/Cherone are all acceptable. you MUST include what your favorite part is, or what about it makes it your favorite. "Because it rocks" (or similar) isn't a valid...

    Okay, I want to raise the height on my bridge (tremolo) and lower the action on a Mexican Fender Stratocaster. How could I do this while keeping it intonated?

    Lately my Strat had not been staying in tune as well as it used to when using the trem. I then realized that my trem angle was not as high as it once was. I went back to this video (which is how I setup my Strat when I first got it) and presto! Once again I can go to town on the vintage style...

    I have a Mexican strat that I've been upgrading piece by piece. I don't use the trem (standard, awful strat trem) and so it's blocked at the moment. However, I would love for it to have a Wilkinson on it. What is required to switch out the awful standard strat trem for a Wilkinson? Would it be a...
