  1. Question: Why? the second picture you posted looks like...

    Why? the second picture you posted looks like there is no bend at all. You are getting fooled by the angle.

    And the "luthier" you find is probably going to look at you pretty strange when you ask...

    Yeah, definitely sounds like the locking mechanism isn't retracted far enough. There should be no issues using strings of that gauge.
  3. Question: I'm sure if you don't like the color, there are...

    I'm sure if you don't like the color, there are plenty of people who would gladly take it off your hands, probably for more than you paid for it.

    Definitely keep an eye out locally, as well as on the internet. A lot of thieves are actually not that bright when it comes to fencing their stolen crap.

    I have definitely been tempted. I just never know what to do with a tremolo.

    Yes, they are limited, and hand signed, with a metallic paint marker. Those are not super resilient, and there is no way to make them so if you want something that is literally hand signed.

    Are...

    There shouldn't be any issues swapping out the bridge pickup. It's a standard humbucker, and any other Fender spaced pickup should work. Not sure which would get you closest to the new sound. Those...

    Man, those are ugly. Are they supposed to tenderize your picking hand?

    Yes, because removing the headstock results in a vastly improved instrument? No, it doesn't. It never has.

    I also happen to like my strings anchored at the bridge by some thing SOLID, not some...

    Did you measure the pickup cavity itself? There definitely is some space around the EMG pickups.

    Is it just the base that is larger, or the entire pickup assembly? Seems weird that they would be...

    I love that video. I mean, yes with different strength magnets and I guess the magnetic field density, you get some altering of the tone, but fundamentally, it seems almost like a "law of diminishing...

    That could be. 9V batteries are not exactly a standard size, as they are designed to clip on. Many people put some foam behind their batteries to make sure that they make good contact.

    A lot of companies use somewhat bland stock pickups in their sub 1k models, which is why so many guitarists get used to instantly switching them out. Even the more expensive models from Gibson often...

    Is the battery properly seated in the compartment? It sounds like it may not be making contact.

    Some springs seem to be "stiffer" than others. Also having more springs with less stretch can feel a lot different.

    Definitely shorter grub screws if the ends bother you. I know some people who don't even notice them, and others who are bothered by them. I don't really rest my hand on the bridge much, so they...

    I don't know where people have this idea that magnets have some inherent tonal quality. They don't. The pickup design determines what the pickup sounds like, and it wasn't voiced in a way you like...

    How are you playing the strings? I have found that some people tend to play the B string differently, and if you make it oscillate in a more up/down directly, you will get more buzz. In general, it...
