  1. If in Northern California, or Seattle, Wa, you can check out www.tapplastics.com. They can do lazer cutting and fire polishing. Just bring in a scaled drawing of what you want cut out.

I'm a bass player who started building basses recently. I also just completed one guitar and am about to start the next with this trem. Do guitar players and builders really utilise the recessed option (is it worth it)? [/quote] I certainly do, in fact, I'm not comfortable playing the other. Main reason is, I do in fact pull up often, & also, this application is usually utilized on a guitar that has little or no neck angle, as is my preference. My picking hand is much closer to the body & is totally comfortable to me. My hand stays relaxed in this position eliminating fatique.
  3. [quote name='mkat' post='363571' date='Jan 14 2008, 06:22 PM']I have a Gotoh GE1996T guitar trem. Is the route pattern for this the same as the floyd Rose original? I'll be installing this into a guitar that I'm preparing to build soon, rather than a guitar than has an existing trem route.[/quote] I have the exact same trem, I was told by Stewmac that the Floyd template that they sell (both recessed & non-recessed) are a direct fit.
  4. I've seen your neck through blanks on Ebay & have you listed as one of my "favorite sellers". & I've been meaning to ask you a question. When you provide a neck through blank with frets installed, are they complete, ready to play as in, frets crowned and polished, or are they just leveled & beveled?
