  1. use the little neodymium magnets, you can get them for peanuts on Ebay. Theyre really powerful. glue them into holes flush to the surface and mount them as far from thepickups as possible, this shOuld work a treat if you recess the guard. id really like to see this when its done!

  4. Well boyos heres a new bass for your perusal.... 5 string 34" scale spacing- 10mm at the nut, 17 mm at the bridge- (in between a modern warwick size and a fender arrangement) 24 frets (plus "zero" fret) nickel hardware walnut body maple purpleheart neck maple fingerboard two passive G&B soapbars Active Artec preamp-e.q. (Bass, treble, mid cut/boost, parametric mid frequency shift, vol, blend) Recessed straplocks probably just a satin/oiled finish :Basically a single-cut, Benavente shaped, 5 string nothing fancy but going for clean lines and simplicity)

  10. Hi i am doing a project for my final year at college it involves innovating the musical instrument. Obviously i want to base the designs around the guitar/bass guitar. SO what strange things would you like to see on your instrument, what do you feel is unnescessary or what is functional but could be done better? is there something youve always wanted to be able to do with your instrument but never could? What would you like to see built in to your guitar, and what just plain annoys you? If you have any ideas, complaints or storys post them here and i may be able to help!!! all input w
