AufGehts Posted September 3, 2007 Report Share Posted September 3, 2007 Hi, I am hoping that someone will be kind enough to share their knowledge with me. I am doing up an old SG Copy labelled 'Diplomat' which was apparently manufactured by the Ibanez factory way back when and imported to New Zealand where a distributor labelled it Diplomat. The following link will take you to another one just like it that was distributed as CROWN obviously in the US http://jcguitars.com/crownsg1.JPG . Its a rad old guitar though the bigsby style tailpiece is a mess, and I don't really want it. I have a couple of zebra pickups in it now, one from an older Epiphone Les Paul JR and an old mighty mite... so far so good... not the best but it has character. when i finish full time study I will be buying some Duncans for it I think...perhaps Dimarzio's... I am a novice haha. Though my problem is that instead of a standard tailpiece I really want through body ferrules. Can anyone offer a link or directions to do this correctly. I imagined being able to buy a ferrule as thick as the guitar quite easily, doing some careful drilling and just pushing them in...though it seems this is not how it works. So far the only ferrules I can find a maybe 12mm long. The guitar body is roughly 35mm thick... Anyone who has seen an ESP or another guitar with the string thru body will understand what I am after. I am completely unsure how to do it and would love to hear from someone who may be able to help...please. Shane Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
