    Playing and listening to Metal. And of course dabbling in guitar building and such. :o)
  1. You can Download PDF files from Floyd Rose website of Various Trems, they print out full size, plus have all the measurments in metric and imperial I've used them for mine just printed em out and transfered em to some wood etc, and they worked out ok, hope they do for you http://www.floydrose.com/instructions.html
  2. I used to have that exact same model, the eerie dess swirl. I waited months for it. Paid a mint for it too as this was before the Fender take over and all the prices were almost halved and have to say it looked really cool but the guitar itself had some of the worst finishing and quality control ever. The case didn't support the guitar so it banged about inside when you were carrying it. The paint chipped off in numerouse places, the lacquer on the neck was put on that thin that I actually wore spots off it and the neck tuirned green in parts....all this within 4 months. It came with pickup surrounds screwed down too tight that they broke and cracked the surrounds, and the electrics kept cutting out due to a dodgy pot. so all in all it was a piece off poo that looked nice from a distance. Tried to get my money back but was told I couldn't because of the recent take over and all prices have dropped. So I ended up looseing a few hundred pounds and the staff at Shite Control in Manchester the Salford branch were about as useful and helpful as a bunch of monkeys in a banana factory. Anyway that was a few years ago but like the murphys I'm not bitter but yeah cool paint job if it stays on the guitar long enough
  3. Thanks for the reply guys, as far as noise and space are concerned that really isn't an issue as I have quite a large workshop, plus a garage not in use and no neighbours. I'm damn lucky really. What has got me thinking about compressors is that a few of the hardware strores around me and online have got sales on and there are a few compressor deals for sale under and around £100.... my christmas savings and all . I was looking at something like this for instance, if it would be suitable just for my guitars and nothing much else that involve paint spraying. http://www.axminster.co.uk/group_id//prodp...77.htm#catprods thanks once again for the reply's Andy
  4. Hello Everyone Happy New Year I have read a few questions regarding compressor's, and I have read lot's of questions and answers regarding spray guns and such but couldn't find as much info on compressors, and wondered if someone could just shed a bit of light onto what size tanks, motors, psi etc they use and have found the best for spraying their guitars. I have sprayed guitars before at college a few years back but would like to try a small workshop setup at some point this year, mainly for hobby use. As I only make a few guitars a year. and do have a couple almost ready for spraying that I'd like to finish off. so if anyone could shed a bit of there experineces and technical knolledge with various compressor sizes I would be most grateful Oh here's a picture of my V needs a load more sanding and stuff but couldn't resist trying it all out for a while first.... only just noticed the EMG is wrong way round too ha...oh well Thanks Andy
