    Is the neck stable? Were those fret markers used only on a Dargie run?

    That is such a beauty! I especially love how the colors complement each other in natural light.

    You have one of the EBMM modern tremolo bridges. The cover does not need to be removed to change the strings. There is a hole in the bottom of the tremolo block (back side of the guitar) beneath each...

    The routes for the pickup legs on the HH make me think they’re MusicMan rather than DiMarzio pickups?

    Taking off that cap could well mean having to do something to adjust how far above the top the fingerboard sits, no? As the bridge would be mounted to a body that was thinner than original...

    It is amazing what you can get for not much money. I bought a guitar today for $179, new. I wanted a guitar that I was comfortable leaving in the back of a vehicle in a gig bag in the S. Texas...

    Hey, this isn't the for sale thread! :p

    That's actually an interesting hypothesis. I'll be looking for your results.

    As five7 alluded to, a species of wood doesn’t have uniform density, so two basses made on the same line from same body/neck woods can vary in weight to a noticeable degree. So you have to look at...

    The front of the headstock is definitely painted. Other than through-neck instruments, which generally are painted necks, only the front of the headstock is painted for a matching headstock. The...

    Some people like matching headstock and body finish, and some people like the natural wood color. EBMM instruments sometimes give the buyer a choice between the two options.

    My experience has varied from year to year, just based on the weather, I guess. I've experienced mild fret sprout on roasted necks some years, but it hasn't been bad enough to drive me to do anything...

    Yeah, if memory serves, that was a special release of only 25 guitars sometime in 2018 (maybe late 2017).

    That looks so out of place to me. I'd have to do this to a beater guitar of some sort - just couldn't make myself do it to a Valentine, I don't think.

    I guess doing that to a Valentine would mean mounting the trem itself, plus a tune-o-Matic or similar bridge? Thatís an intriguing idea, as thereís plenty of space behind the bridge. Wonder if the...

    You might find this helps as you play, assuming it was in tune when you started: mute the strings with your fret hand, dive the trem to the point that the strings are slack, and then let it go back...

    Also worth noting that Ernie Ball recently introduced 9.5-44 (and 10.5-48 I think?) string sets. I know Sweetwater showed them in stock last week, but they don't seem to have made their way to any of...

    Happened across one of these in a shop on Friday. Definitely not for me, as I'm not a 7-stringer, but I was struck by how light it was! Also seemed like a matte finish - pretty guitar.
