    I’m gonna try the Joyo American Sound

    I have one. I picked it up to try it direct into the DAW for recording. I have yet to properly put it to use. Maybe in the fall. I experimented with the American Sound in front of the 5f11 Vibrolux. I liked it, but I still prefer plugging straight into the amp or to use a Lovepedal Deluxe pedal...

    Gold plated parts for American Vintage Style Guitars- very hard to find, So...

    The pix are not good. Everything is gold- has been since I assembled the guitar. Some pieces are more worn than others (matches the finish), but it's all correct, including the truss rod nut.

    Gold plated parts for American Vintage Style Guitars- very hard to find, So...

    We had a slight delay in leaving port, so I installed the saddles today. Pix are not good, but the fit and feel are much better, as is the gold plating. The old saddles were metric and had small gaps between the saddles. They worked fine, but I didn't like the gaps. Now, the fit is perfect. The...

    Opinions about the Callaham trem arm 64" length

    So at 5'4" (as long as my wife is tall!) would you curl it or use your foot to operate it???

    Which Strat do you prefer?

    god played a banjo (fact- I Romans 5:27) & Leo wasn't a player @Digiplay I have floating trems and awesome hardtails- no tuning issues with either. Can't say I prefer one over the other. Different tools.

    Gold plated parts for American Vintage Style Guitars- very hard to find, So...

    Yes, I know... these are nice, but they are metric and do not fit the vintage dimensions. I currently have these saddles on my guitar and they are not wide enough.

    I am done with the mods

    Well, this speaks volumes... I came here expecting a crapstorm trainwreck thread and was instead greeted by a gorgeous guitar.

    Gold plated parts for American Vintage Style Guitars- very hard to find, So...

    I was assured by the manufacturer that it is indeed 24K gold (he alsoo offers 18k and 14k kits), but for the gold kit, cyanide-free gold salt is used. My guess (key word here) is that it is a potassium derived salt. There is cyanide in the silver kit. It's aqueous (suspended in a water base) and...

    Gold plated parts for American Vintage Style Guitars- very hard to find, So...

    The gold Pat Pend saddles get produced by the Custom Shop, but unfortunately you can't simply buy them. And there are no sources for the truss rod nut as well. A couple of things can influence the final color of a plated object... the gold solution used (14k, 18k, 24k) the material of the item...

    Question: Would you buy a signature model guitar of musician you don't care for?

    For features not available in another model, yes I would. Remember, some had the signature on the back of the headstock (e.g., John Mayer, Jimmy Vaughan), so not readily seen... and some (e.g., H.E.R. had no signature at all).

    1982 Fender JV Stratocaster that does not say "Made in Japan" ?

    It "should" (term used loosely) have a small "Made in Japan" decal below"Fender". It appears they were applied over the clear coat (based on your image with the slightly damaged F of the Fender part), so perhaps the "Made in Japan" was simply removed... or it's anomalous, or it's just Fender...

    Hot sauce does go bad, but not for quite a while. First it loses it color. I tend to avoid it after it turns brown.

    Gold plated parts for American Vintage Style Guitars- very hard to find, So...

    There was some discussion about these a while back and people were lamenting the fact that they are not available for making Mary Kaye style/replica guitars. I should probably pickup a few more truss rod nuts and plate them for people that have been looking. The problem is that I am in Turkey...

    When to flick the pickup selector switch in the middle of a song?

    Whatever works for the song/solo. Just another tonal variety tool.

    No, it's a dipping kit. The negative electrode clips to the item to be plated, the positive electrode is a wand that you dip into the solution. BTW, the solution contains no cyanide.
