    Yeah, especially for the high dollar limited run guitars. Few people are gonna drop over $2000 on a guitar that they can't see first.

    Been there, done that. You should be able to put the string back into the locking peg. You can use the tremolo to help give you more slack, but don't push the string in too far or you'll have trouble...

    They have a facebook page: Kanda Shokai Corporation - 1,846 Photos - Company -

    Their website only has a contact form, have you tried that?

    I understand you REALLY want to know more information...

    Quoted for emphasis. Moving from a 6 screw to a 2 post tremolo is a major undertaking, and will both cost a significant amount AND devalue the guitar you have.

    I think 2000-2002 is the closest you will get. EBMM doesn't have the records. You would need to contact the company that assembled them:

    Kanda Shokai Corp

    That's a Wilkinson Tremolo. They are still made by GOTOH.

    Are you having issues with the tremolo because it is worn out, or were you looking for something new? There are a bunch of tremolos that...

    Most EBMM guitars leave the factory with the same string height:

    Factory string setting for standard tuning starts at the bass side 4/64" (1.59 mm) to 5/64" (1.98 mm) and the treble side is 3/64"...

    Do you have any pictures of the tremolo on the guitar? Is it the same as the current units?

    Are you sure the number is correct? Sometimes the F or G can look like an E. Also some special runs may not be in the database yet.

    I get a result for E29400, but any number higher than that...

    They are different pieces of wood, and will expand/contract somewhat differently. I don't think I own a guitar where the seam isn't visible in some way or form reflected in the finish.

    Might be possible, but you also might need to ditch the electronics. From what I see in that link, it looks like the preamp module is the same for various models, however I don't know if you would be...

    I have heard of them exchanging bridges, and you need to send back the old one. That said, I don't know if changes were made to the bridge between 1990 and when they changed the bridge a year or so...

    As long as the two really thin wires are still attached to the solder pads, it should be fixable with a new pickup lead. Looks like it's been twisted around a few times.

    I've never really seen them use a shim like that. Also I would think with the color difference, it was more likely a sticker of some sort. A shim wouldn't leave the wood a different color.

    Definitely get a fret rocker and look for some high frets. Just one can really ruin your day. If it was stored in a non climate controlled area, that can work frets up out of the slots.

    If you kept tightening the bottom grub screw, it may have gone right out of the threads, and your trem arm might also not be "locking in" correctly.

    I don't think that's a very fair assessment. Bass guitars are made of wood, and the two main pieces are held together with the pressure from bolts through the two pieces. Until you tighten them, you...

    Well, which guitars do you like? Mini humbuckers are going to sound like mini hums. They are probably firebird style, so they are definitely a different sound than full size humbuckers or single...

    The angle in the neck pocket is far more important. Also the stingray specials have a lighter body so they cannot be compared to your stingray. You've got to shim the neck.

    How much clearance is there when you adjust the truss rod? Holding down at the 1st and 12th fret, there should only be about a thin guitar pick clearance around the 5th fret.

    Only way to find out is to try it. The SD JB pickup was originally designed for a Strat, but you see it used in a lot of Les Paul type guitars. Some love it, some hate it.
