Not the most snappy post title I admit, but accurate! You may have experienced this – installing a new set of tuners on a brand new neck and one of the screw heads shears off, requiring a difficult extraction process. The screws are very small and if your pilot hole is too tight the smallest […]
For those of you who did not register for updates here is the latest development for Gotoh SD91 tuners. As well as another packaging change they now come with both vintage spec 8.8mm and Fender spec 9.2mm bushes. This is extremely handy, as Fender uses Ping Well tuners on most of it’s “import” range and […]
A couple of new products arrived with the Hosco/Gotoh shipment. First up – Hosco 9.5″ radius slotted bone nut. (Yes, that awesome close up picture was taken by me.) Can be used on both flat and curved nut slots, just remove the tab for a 9.5″ curved bottom. The slots are well cut on these, […]
Those of you who have ordered push/push pots from me will be familiar with my packing method and marking each pot with value and taper (A250k etc) What happens if you have ordered a few pots with various value/taper and have unwrapped them without making note of which is which? Relax, you don’t need a […]
Another quickie. Gotoh “In-Tune” compensated Telecaster saddles in brass and titanium. I am repeating the blurb from the product page a bit here, but they are pretty clever. Grooves in each saddle have an offset string break point, giving the compensation. This is very similar to Marc Rutters’ popular “straight comp” design, with some tweaks. […]
Due to a run on the Fender Pat. Pend bridge plates I am running low on stock. I am waiting on a new shipment which will hopefully be here next week. Until then the aged bridge assembly will be aged to order, which will add 2 days to the dispatch time. The up-side being until […]
Added to our Aged Hardware range today, Wilkinson vintage style bent steel saddles for that relic look. Light/medium ageing. As with the rest of the Aged range if they are showing as out of stock just get in touch – new batches can be ready in a day or so.
New batches ready so if something is showing as out of stock it is an oversight on my part and you should get in touch.
After a bit of a delay 500k CTS TVT pots in both long and medium shaft are back in stock! 250k short shaft are also available in solid and split shaft.
*Just the one for now – I still have to inspect and (try to) photograph the rest. I ordered a few of these to check them out and I like them a lot – vintage Telecaster bridges from Hosco. They are the standard Fender vintage footprint and come with an unpolished chrome finish, mimicking the […]
