Re: Input/suggestions for pickup demo wanted

Do you have Vintage Vibe's P90's. Otherwise I could send them to you for your demo. That’s a swell idea/offer, but I’ll pass at the moment (and may change my mind tomorrow) because I actually have way too many pickups (and guitars) in general; and need to get in the practice of covering my eyes at ...

Re: High fret

It may be a fret lifting. Quite easy to fix, and I would check if the buzz goes away when pressure is applied to the offending fret.

Re: Springs

I had a Kahler installed in a Hard Tail fly by a pro. Wow! think I do remember you mentioning that, @Patzag, but I don’t recall seeing a photo—I’d love to see a photo of that! I’m also curious what you didn’t bond with. I made a number of mods to this guitar. Kahler (no Piezo), locking nut, electro...

Re: Springs

Even as a guy who still prefers the Kahler/Steinberger cam design, I agree wholeheartedly that Ken’s flatspring design was (and, in some ways, remains) ahead of its time. By the way, I had a Kahler installed in a Hard Tail fly by a pro. I sold the instrument since, but it proved that that system wo...

This is a brief update, to say that we’ve got some great findings to share soon, and, now, we’re going to begin opening a few slots on our closed beta team to test some new springs based on our research! We’re still a ways out on this, but if you’re able to help us test our latest batc...

Re: “What’s this worth?” thread

I can see the trend moving back to the 2K range now. There are a number of Classics listed around 2.2 - 2.4 which could sell around 2K. I think ultimately we will get back to the sub-2K level for a decent guitar once the collectors internal bidding war reveals itself to be artificially inflated. Las...

Re: Guitar Center Parker Marketing Blurb

Apart from the typos it's actually quite good. If you notice, the second paragraph already assumes that you will buy a Parker. The only question remains: which one?

The quality of that gig bag is no joke! 😝 Scientists estimate that billions of years from now, only cockroaches, giant squid, and those Levi gig bags will survive!
