    I guess my question would be: how close are the MM90 pickups to the classic P-90 sound? Can they Mississippi Queen?

    Well, I could be wrong. I'm more familiar with the EBMM tremolos than the ones on the Sterling by Musicman. You may just have it too tight, which prevents it from coming out.

    The "spring" only...

    Which adjustment did you use to make the bar tighter? The bar has several adjustment screws, usually 3. One controls how loose or tight it is, one controls how strongly the locking spring locks in...

    Yeah, you've got all you would need for that guitar. What else do you want to know? It would most likely be standard other than the special emblem.

    Personally I'm fine with the hard tail. I guess if Steve Morse wants to Whammy, he Whammies hard and needs the Floyd. I think originally it was a non-floating floyd but then they changed it to a...

    If you have a Sterling by Musicman LK100, you do not have a Luke. They will not exchange your Sterling by Musicman LK100 wiring for the Luke III wiring.

    If they are made by dimarzio, they would use the dimarzio color code.

    I don't know about the pickups that music man makes themselves. You should probably email them.

    If this is a Sterling by...

    Never really considered it, and you'll most likely find that most people here are the same way. Franken-guitars are rarely looked on favorably, and while it's your choice, if you ever choose to sell...

    It's not really "polished". Ebony just has that very shiny close grained texture. You can use lemon oil or many swear by EBMM wonder wipes.

    before you do that, unscrew the knob and remove it. Sometimes the shaft slips a bit inside the knob, meaning when you push it down you can't get it go to down far enough to latch/unlatch.

    You also...

    He also mentioned an L4? And yes, I remember the info about the Flamed Maple top Luke guitars. Was that posted here, or on the EBMM website? I can't find much about it anymore. I think it was in the...

    That's a pretty dark finish, and really requires quite a bit of light to make it really "pop". Most guitar and/or car polishes should be find for the finish.

    They most likely use the same wiring for all of their mono output jacks for active basses. Basically you've got wires for signal, and the wires that complete the circuit to turn on the active...

    If the EX basses were made from U.S.-made parts, did they also get the usual stamped dates and information inside the neck pocket? That might be one way to find more information.

    You should be able to measure from the solder pads on the pickups, as long as the coil wires are intact.

    The pickups in the Silo are probably custom wound dimarzios, like they use in them now.

    That's a misleading title. Read the description. He never says that it's any type of "real evh" strap. It's just a discontinued EB leather strap.

    Did you check it at the pickup itself. or at the end of the wires? Sometimes the solder joint at the pickup itself goes cold, and you can reflow it easily.

    Does the bridge pickup look corroded at all? If any pickup is gonna be exposed to sweat, it's the bridge pickup.
  20. Question: Do you have any pictures? Is it a finished neck,...

    Do you have any pictures? Is it a finished neck, or is it like bare wood? If it's discolored, then it probably has the Gunstock oil and Wax blend. You should see a change in color around the nut,...

    Trying to keep track of changes in the JP line can be maddening, even with just the regular JP models. But, they definitely DO sell.

    If you get pinging, I would recommend getting some graphite or other lubricant for the nut. That means the string is binding and can cause issues.

    Tremolo springs make noise unfortunately, which...

    You will only be able to get that hardware from EBMM, and they don't really sell it, unless it's a replacement for a bass you already have. You would need to send in your tuners in exchange, however...

    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...
