  1. Earlier this month the new owners of Gibson gave back the rights to the Oberheim name to Tom Oberheim. No licensing, no deal just here ya go. This deal looks fine to me they are Echopark guitars very expensive distressed replicas. Not outsourced production they aren't Gibson guitars. Take a breath and repeat after me: they aren't Gibson guitars. How this "ends badly" for Gibson is beyond me. Echopark can build with korina which Gibson no longer uses so there's that. Any issues with the build or CS is on Echopark. Some people will make it about Gibson, naturally.
  2. My guess is Hamer installed the Kahler You could put one of those fixed versions in it's place. I'm thinking about doing that to my BC RIch.
  3. Great point. At a former job the boss showed up with 2 sledgehammers. Our crew destroyed 10s of thousands of dollars in control valves. Because of the law, employees we were forbidden to scrap out the metal but they didn't care if our friends retrieved it later that night(which we did). The guitars are useless without the electronics and have no value. I figured people would get a kick out of this video. The firebird x was so hated. Instead outrage, and claims of bad PR and bad management. Same shit different day.
  4. The statement Gibson released leads me to believe the electronics didn't meet ROHS. What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS?The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP). That's just the basic standard. Without the documentation there's no ROHS. It doesn't mean the guitars contain hazardous substances. You can't sell or give them away. You can't give them to schools or poor people. They are worth more as tax write off than it would to pay people to recycle parts like bridges & tuners.
  5. I think I've seen ruthenium on a Shishkov somewhere just didn't know where to order it. So thank you very much!
  6. At least...but for this project I think I'm going to go with all ruthenium hardware
  7. Yeah but I need like 10 of those 😎
  8. Only thing I like about Gotoh is the trem arm holder. Which block and nut do you use on your calis?
  9. My Cali has a few too many stripped saddle set screws. Anyone ever installed a gotoh or OFR into a Cali? Ibanez edge?
  10. The Hahn was one of my favorites. Is there a complete list?
  11. Yeah I've played with a few guys. Both great players. Ex drummer for King Diamond playing in a Black Label Society tribute band. Great player, huge diva, was constantly at odds with our Zakk. We actually fired him, LOL. Another pretty famous local guy, played with Cher & others, dated Cher. We had a big local festival and he didn't show up. One of the crew guys had to pick up him at his Mothers house. Had a real bad coke habit but could play everything perfectly regardless of his condition.
  12. I've been building these boards for years using materials bought at Home Depot. Aluminum U channel cut to fit the lumber and held in place with rivets then covered the whole thing in velcro. Circular miter saw with a little wax on the blade makes these cuts easy. When monocase started making pedalboard cases I built new boards to fit. The larger one was the guitar pedalboard and the smaller was the bass pedalboard. The aluminum boxes on the guitar board were custom patchbays and re-housed power supplies I built. Did the same thing on the bass board but the patchbays and power supplies are smaller & hidden under the shelf.
  13. Mine is not for sale but I paid more for my bass.
  14. I have a Max just like this one. Fat neck on my bass.
