  8. That is one awesome guitar metz. Can you say guitar of the month? Are you going to get some skull knobs?
  9. Thanks guys because I was considering building electric upright bass as close to 40'' scale length without having to buy upright strings. I just wanted to experiment with that.
  10. Hey now your saying that like it's a bad thing lol. I am a heathen. Anyways leave the guitar alone the value will only go up.
  11. What is the max scale length I can use for electric bass strings?
  12. Simo all the way! All are nice but Simo's is what I like the best.

  14. Hey guys some one came to me and wanted a guitar repaired I said I'd give it a try since I don't have acoustic guitar experience. It just needs a bone saddle and bridge pins. I need help what is the best way to install and shape a saddle? Should I use my radius gauge and copy the neck radius to the saddle?

  16. Yeah it is a bolt on neck so it can be shimmed to the proper angle. Depends on what Iceman wants to do with it.
  17. Fender style hardtails or tom's are always a good choice but they are the most common.
  18. You misunderstood me I think I want to build it. I didn't build that, that ain't me I thought that upright would be cool to learn to play upright on.
  19. Hey guys what do you think of this homemade upright bass? Think it's worth building to learn on? People on youtube seem to like it. But I thought I'd ask you guys though. http://www.ehhs.cmich.edu/~dhavlena/bass3.jpg http://www.ehhs.cmich.edu/~dhavlena/db2.jpg http://www.ehhs.cmich.edu/~dhavlena/db.htm http://www.ehhs.cmich.edu/~dhavlena/db.gif
  20. where do you buy accrylic? Someday I might make one out of that. What router bits would you use for this?
  21. Hi, I have a fixer upper B.C. Rich Platinum series guitar I was thinking of selling. It is either an Assassin or more likely an ST. The finish is Black with yellow crackle. I have a tremolo with it but it is in rough shape. I also have pickups to go with it they are not Emgs but they will do. The tuners are included. http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee250/u...ebaypics028.jpg http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee250/u...ebaypics027.jpg
  22. What kind of tremolo is this? It came with my B.C. Rich fixer upper and I would like a new trem. It looks like a Floyd but it doesn't say Floyd on it. The guitar can be seen in my restoration post. http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee250/u...ebaypics032.jpg http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee250/u...ebaypics031.jpg
