    RIP Fender MIM

    Not sure why they feel the need to rebrand. I've already got all the strat and tele type guitars I need. Now I just need a jazzmaster.

    I'm Not Worthy!!!!

    Edwards Custom trombones names all of their horns after Chevy Engine configurations. As one might expect, their main pro-level orchestral horn is the T-350, while the main bass is the B-454. They also have a B-502. I also like how Rolls Royce names all of their aircraft engines after birds of prey. The Supermarine Spitfire had a Roll's Royce "Merlin" engine, a Supercharged v12.

    Callaham Bigsby Front Roller Upgrade

    US Bigsby's are still sand cast, like they were made decades ago. I kinda wish they would make a machined version with the same type of bearings as the US. I have a guitar with a licensed Bigsby, with the nylon bearings. I'd love to have something with ball bearings.
  5. Nice! If only it was a color other than Cherry. https://www.ebay.com/itm/192571210733

    Duncan Everything Axe Set

    Nice! I've had good luck with the "Injector" pickup set in the G&L Legacy I picked up here. More bite than the usual Strat, but not too much. All hum cancelling, and gets good quack. I think Dimarzio has some more powerful "Area" Strat pickups with Alnico 5 magnets. I will say though I have lots of friends who love the JB Jr in the bridge, as well as the pickups from Dimarzio like the super distortion and tone zone rails, or the fast track set.

    Matt "Guitar" Murphy RIP

    Ahhh. I still want that SG. Gotta love a guy who loves SGs, even if it looked like a toy guitar in his hands. Of course I think just about any guitar would look like a toy with him.

    Tech 21 Trademark 10

    I kinda wish they would make a head version of the trademark series, but oh well. I was going to get one for a while, but I couldn't decide between the 30 and the 60, which have a much different preamp setup.

    Gibson files for bankruptcy

    I would imagine he's got such a huge golden parachute that he'll never hit the ground.

    So, if I was going to build a bass

    I don't like their designs or logo. They DO look kinda cheap. They are angular, and look like bathroom hardware. Even their "Z-series" which is supposed to look traditional still looks weird.

    So, if I was going to build a bass

    Definitely like the Hipshots. Carvin/Kiesel uses them, and they are solid and lower profile than the elphant ears. I love my EBMM basses, but those giant tuners are something I have never been a fan of. Bridges come in so many varieties now. I also think maybe looking into the G&L Saddle Lock bridges might be good. The bridge itself has a "foot" that fits into a routed channel on the top of the body. String through options are also nice, as are the "single string" bridges that are out there. I know I've seen a Shishkov with a Babicz guitar bridge. They make nice stuff.

    how tough to replace a volume pot?

    I was making an order with stewmac and got their plastic knob puller. OMG it is so worth it. It just works. https://www.stewmac.com/Luthier_Tools/Tools_by_Job/Tools_for_Maintenance/P-51_Knob_Puller.html
  13. Are they the "humbucker mounting ring screws"?
  14. What I need is a good source for the screws that hold on the control cover plate. I have a few missing and it makes my OCD go nuts.

    Tech/Features You Wish Hamer Had

    Oh my God. Finally an intelligent response I can use against Carvin/Kiesel fanbois who say that any guitar without SS or Evo frets is total crap. Somehow Nut material makes a huge difference in sound, but frets don't.... Also, like others, I don't see why the Super Strat idea was ditched, or even the regular strat idea. There are many companies making top notch Strat and tele type guitars, and doing just fine. Pretty much all of the big companies (even PRS now) have a Strat type guitar. As much as Jol helped make Hamer what it was, he also helped put the nails in the coffin with his decisions.
