Did you try a little lubrication?
Well I haven't tried anything so far. I thought I replace the old nut to Graph Tech TUSQ nut. And I think the machine heads should be replaced to Shaller M6. With all these modifications I expect better tuning stability.
Grab a HB or 2B pencil. Pull the string out of the slot and rub the pencil along the slot building up a little black dust in the slot. The graphite in the lead is a good dry lubricant. Put the string back and retune. Play for a while. Report back to us.
wow this looks great - congrats.
one question: does the feel of the neck thickness change by taking the finish off? I´m asking because my SUB1 has a chunky neck and I´m hesitating to take the finish off because I don´t want to feel it thinner
what do you mean with a "tremolo set"? Did you replace the whole thing?My guitar is almost finished. A new tremolo set will be arrived tomorrow, and after the setup and a little more soldering I can say it is finished.
I decided not to replace mine because for exact those reasons. The main advantage the Schallers have I think is that you don´t need a tool whereas you need a coin or something else for the stock SUB tuners, but I´m fine with thatThey do their jobs and the strings stay in tune. What do you think?
