    Ahh yes, the most expensive electric guitar EVER sold. Owned by one of the most legendary guitarists ever.
  2. Help: Yeah, I would think if you want a strat type neck...

    Yeah, I would think if you want a strat type neck pickup, but the bridge humbucker sound of a petrucci, there are better starting points.
  3. Help: Which type of strat sound? generally the neck...

    Which type of strat sound? generally the neck pickup on a strat is not particularly bright. The bridge pickup is, and to some extent the middle pickup.

    Also, the position of a strat neck pickup...

    It's routed and set up for a humbucker. It's not exactly simple to put a single coil pickup in there. They tend to be taller and the mounting holes will not line up, unless you go for a humbucker...

    Pawn shops and estate sales. Or maybe a really good friend. That's about it.

    Remember, the axis has a matching headstock usually, and refinishing JUST the top of a guitar is often harder than refinishing the whole thing.

    Finding a purple axis used will probably be easier...

    Okoume is technically not a "true" mahogany. They are members of the same order, but the true Mahoganies are all members of the Meliaceae family, while Okoume is a member of the Burseraceae family....

    It keeps me from dwelling on how much I WANT a Blue Moonstone Saber, a Cerulean Paradise JP15, a Luscious Green Luke III Maple Top, a Tectonic Blue Sparkle Stingray 5 Special, etc...

    Man... those are just such great looking guitars. Part of me really wants to pick up a stingray of some color in 2020, and sell off a bunch of "other" guitars. Now if only they had one in a great...

    Some REALLY like that deep color purple. And if you are on stage, under the lights, that would make it POP. A lighter purple might look pink on stage.

    I'm not saying I doubt you, but celluloid is a HAZMAT ORM-D commodity, and highly flammable. LMI does sell some celluloid materials, but assess a heavy surcharge due to the hazmat considerations.

    It kinda seems like you have a basic misunderstanding of what Wax is. It's like the Wax you put on cars. It goes over the finish, makes it waterproof, and makes it slippery and gleaming.

    What...

    Considering that Winter Namm hasn't even officially started yet, the only people who know are Steve Lukather and the people who work at EBMM. I believe the single coils are the same as those used on...

    Do you slowly bring back the tremolo to rest, or do you just let it go? It's going to make a noise if you just let it go, unless you have it set floating.

    You could probably put some felt under it...

    Are you sure on that? I'm pretty sure celluloid hasn't been used by most for years, with it being very environmentally unfriendly, as well as toxic and flammable. It literally explodes if exposed to...

    Oh dang! Get that knife edge back where it belongs.

    When you use the whammy bar the entire thing cuts out? Oof. Was this a new guitar? That sounds suspiciously like there is a short/ damage to the wires going to the piezo system.

    Yeah, it's a bezel that surrounds the pickup. You should be able to fit just about anything in there. Still not sure why people are so keen on tossing stock pickups. They were custom voiced to work...

    A better option would just be to say which jack they use, and let people source it locally themselves. The jacks are definitely NOT proprietary.

    Of course, it would also be a good idea to list...

    I hate to say it, but most people don't think those are ugly. That's a very popular color scheme for a guitar.

    The single coil pickups have covers on them, so you may be able to find replacements...

    Polyurethane and polyester are pretty much impervious to things like water, chemicals, etc. There should be no issue at all using any commercially available guitar waxes on the body.

    Did it move easily before? Can you loosen it a lot? Probably best to take it to a tech.

    For me, I had a really stiff adjustment nut on a brand new bass. I backed it out enough that I could put in...
