    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...

    I have no use for a floyd rose tremelo on one of my RGs. Can I easily remove the Edge3 and replace it with a standard Hard-Tail type trem? I'd be getting a luthier to do it for me, is it a big job?

    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...

    Hi everybody I have a Suhr Standard with a "strat" style bridge. I have a problem when using the trem bar to a bit of a dive, the return to pitch is slightly sharp and is most noticable on the low E and A strings. Neck bow, action and intonation are all fine, and the bridge is set flush to...

    Hi all, I picked up a used RT650 in a beautiful transparent green (almost aqua) over a photo flame gravure top for $300. How rare is this? The neck pocket in the body and base of the neck are stamped RT650 and the neck also has a RT650 sticker near the serial number on the back of the...

    Alright, being the Fender fan that I am, i got a bit "steamed" when I saw the bash thread, and my first instinct was to race in there and be the voice of opposition. Well, I decided not to disrespect Ibanez2005, and run in there negate his thread off the bat, lol. I'll just use this thread, and...

    As the title says, voice your opinion on why you dont like strats or any other guitar for that matter. Heres mine, Why are all fenders the same? Same neck, same finish, same colours, same sound. Cant they give us something new, did evolution stop with the Strat?

    Wanted: To trade one or two Strats for one or two synths, preferably VA's, but I'm flexible. If I could trade both for an Oberheim OB-12 or a Roland JD-800 in good working order, that would be ideal. Description & Condition: The black strat: This came to me as a Mexican Strat that had a lot...

    I changed my stratocaster's strings, 3rd to 6th string one at a time, but my strings keep getting out of tune, especially my 5th and 6th string and 3rd string. I kept tuning it. then i play with it more and it gets out of tune again. If i bend and use whammy bar, it gets out of tune even more...
