    I tried the TN in another ax today and noticed that it robs a good bit of chime, most likely a result of the heavy claw. Tried the ax that it came out of and it got its chime back. It does add a...

    I installed one a couple weeks ago and I'm very impressed with it. It's important to fine tune it, centering the claw and getting the right *light* tension on the clamp to the block. If there's any...

    I think all finishes are subject to under the clear coat "lines". Not the kind you can feel, but the kind under the clear coats, that show, usually only in certain lighting. I believe it's most...

    String tension can be (or feel) less or more based on more than scale length. Scale length doesn't equal total string length. Even in some cases a different trem block (some inset retainers are...

    A really controversial figure among guitar players, JM. So much love and hate, and I wonder if he could care less. At least I'd like to think he doesn't. I thought he was genuinely hip before he made...

    With a speaker and tube upgrade, the Fender SCXD is perfect for P&W. It's got the natural push of 6V6 tubes, half of a 12AX7 to power the preamp, and a a bunch of amp voices and effects. The clean...

    I've been surprised at the the difference between the sounds of different necks on identical model guitars. I don't just mean rosewood or maple boards, but also the thickness and sometimes the grain...

    I like the DM bridge Breed. It has a PAF vibe, but more powerful, big and tight bass, not muddy, no lack of mids or highs either, growls when overdriven. Actually sounds pretty good clean as well, if...
