Re: Truss Rod or Saddle?

That's SO hard to diagnose without holding the guitar in hand... I wish I could be more help, but setting up an instrument is more art than science (IMO).

Hope this helps! Are the strings old? Any adjustments should be made after a restring so the strings are at least straight.

Re: Replacing Bridge Pins

I say, if it ain't broke don't fix it. Esp with a press fit. idk if i'll get in trouble for this but the martin forum has legit luthiers. it's not as rad as this place tho. repeating loud and slow in case a mod gets pissed for me sending you to the other guys. This forum kicks that other forum's plums

Re: Fernandes Guitar question

I think you have to post several times until your account is no longer restricted. Then you gotta post it somewhere like imgur and link it.

hope this helps!!

Re: Playing Along

What's the context here? Are they playing along with someone playing something they've never heard before or are they just playing along to a song on the radio? Can they do it for 3 - 5 tracks in a row or just one at a time

Re: Hi!

This sounds weird, but I've had the most success with niche vintage stuff on the martin guit forum.

idk if that breaks rules to point you to another forum, hopefully i don't get banned.

I've only ever played one vintage tremolo amp. A crusty fender. it was gritty & smooth like vinyl! :)

Re: Can it be fixed? epiphone special ii, body damage

If there's any issues at the neck joint, stay far far away, unless you have a luthier advise you otherwise

Re: 3 way switch wiring help

stewmac.com was always my go to when I used to do that kind of thing. I'd call it a 3 position switch tho. PS if I were in your shoes, i'd probably take a shot at it & then just buy the 8 pin version. Hope this helps! PS COMPLETELY guessing here, but if 1 prong is conventionally ground I would guess...

Re: Epiphone Truss rod adjustment

I used to set up guitars for a living. I never knew which ones were reverse threaded and which weren't. I just turn it about an 1/8 of a turn at a time until I liked where the neck sat.

Hope this help!
