    Question: Very weird question. Sorry for asking.

(by below, I mean towards the headstock, where you're not supposed to pluck) In other words, should your...

    Luke II Action VS Strat

    VPJR weird issue

    So I’ve scoured the internet and cannot find an answer. I recently changed both the potentiometer and string on my VPJR passive pedal using Ernie Ball parts. I changed the pot because it was getting scratchy. I changed the string because I was there. After doing so, the pedal is not scratchy...

    Issue with a Mono VP

    Hey all, I've got this model of VP (Ernie Ball 6166 250K Mono Volume Pedal for Passive Electronics | Sweetwater).

    Trouble with palm muting on an Axis guitar?

    I LOVE my axis guitar, except... I struggle picking quickly while palm muting on the high E string. Between the whammy bar and Volume knob, my hand is crammed in a small space and my range of motion to quickly pick notes is limited. I tried palm muting closer to the neck pickup, but the sound is...

    Sterling SUB 4 2005: Saddle adjustment grub screws

    Hello - I'm UK based. Would anyone know the correct sized screws for these? I've ordered two sets now both of which don't fit: (M3, 100mm) the thread was too fine (4-40, 3/8ths) too slim I've since learned the difference between UNC and UNF, and I believe I require UNC. I've tried asking...
