tremolo cavity

  1. Pickups & wiring
    Hey everyone, I'm putting some new pups in my 777sk and this is my first experience wiring a guitar. I've noticed that on the side of the tremolo cavity there is a piece of aluminum foil tape which I painted over. Is that going to be a problem when I wire it. I don't see anything referring to...

    Up for grabs is a SMOKIN' 1987 Fender Strat Plus. This is a first-year model of the guitar that spawned the Eric Clapton & Jeff Beck signature models. It's in overall great shape with the exception of the usual finish nicks & dings that one would expect from a 21-year-old guitar. Just took it...

    Hi, I would like to tune my guitar to drop C, but I only have a jackson liscensed floyd rose... so it's not the best quality. I want to put a 58-11 gauge on it so having only 3 springs is't the best idea. I want to know if it's possible to put 4 springs in my tremolo cavity with a tremol-no in...

    Now with two humbuckers Seymour Duncan pickups I hope they will produce these J-custom with more color option.

    It's an 87', three on/off mini-toggles and push/push tap switch, magenta in color. There are a few chipped areas on the body. The two worst ones you can see in the picture. One on the lower edge, and one on the edge of the tremolo cavity. There are plenty of fingernail scratches, some light...

    I just bought these two bodies and was wondering if the white guitar in these pics is an Ibanez? I think it is, though I am unsure. If it is, would any AANJ neck fit it? Can I use a regular licensed floyd rose instead of a lo pro? Thanks for the help.

    110207596321 Unless he's use to making $5 an hour. How can he possible justify the time he spent on this thing. How many hours must that have taken, plus the price of the body, and the paint. Looks like expensive paint. Are there swirls that aren't Jem bodies? I think that would look...

    Hi everyone, Just got this body to work on and the neck pocket is stamped RGA 550. I tried looking it up but came out with nothing. It's AANJ, and has a barrel type input jack like the old 550 (see pictures). I think it is mahogany but can't be sure. It is definitely not basswood. the wood that...

    I purchased a Jackson DK2 about 4 months ago or so. It's not really the type of thing I would normally play, it was more of an impulsive buy for me as I liked the Trans-blue finish. Anyway, the thing has got far less play than any of my other guitars (save maybe my newest RG), but the trem is...

    How deep in the JEM trem cavity are the Spring claw screws positioned? Are they at an angle?

    Hi all, I think this is the right section for this topic as it's prestige related. Here goes: Is it possible to install a Zero Resistance trem system into a RG1570? I'm aware routing would be necessary but I'm prepared to pay for it obviously. I noticed this item available from the Rich...

    I've basically decided to completely overhaul my black RG450. I'm planning on having it refinished to green (ref. early 90s UV777 for the exact colour), changing the dots to pyramids (hence my other thread on the feasibility of this)... but most of all, I want to reroute the tremolo cavity for...

    I recently raised the action on my RG, after all these months of wanting the lowest action possible. Let me tell you, it was like lifting a blanket off my sound! All my notes are now much "fuller", and they sustain a lot longer. At first, it was a little difficult getting used to, but after a...
