  1. So I was looking at some possible trems I would like to fit onto a new project I'm planning and I came across this MosLike Trem bar: https://reverb.com/item/7532820-moslike-vibrato-with-mosrite-spec-bridge-tremolo-sb?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI37aUm_rW5AIVx8DACh2mdgsPEAQYBCABEgKPuvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&merchant_id=102824734&pla=1&utm_campaign=2068628530&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google Does anyone have any experience with these? Right now I am either considering this or the Duesenberg Les Trem. This trem is a little cheaper than the Les Trem, easier to get (I don't have t
  2. It is difficult to construct an electric guitar without reaching for the router. Control and pickup cavities, neck pockets and tremolo recesses are all operations that require the use of this versatile tool, and all of these examples are made much easier and safer by the use of a template and an inverted pattern bit to guide the router around the intended cut. One routing pattern that can be difficult to execute accurately is for a Floyd Rose Original tremolo, particularly the recessed version whereby the arm can be raised or lowered above and below its equilibrium point. The follow
  3. I have Stinger SSX-10 that I got at a pwan shop for $130. I want to repaint it, Put in new electronics, and fill in the tremolo cavity. Should i use bondo to fill in the cavity since it is very poorly routed? Just for clarification i do not believe in the "tonewood" of the guitar.
  4. Hi everyone! So a couple of months ago my uncle gave me a store bought neck and a basswood guitar body he'd worked on before he retired as a carpenter. So I decided to finish it, and bought a whole load of parts for it, but am only now being able to put any time into the project. So I chatted through the parts options with my buddy, and bought a 2 point trem (style 3 in the link: http://www.axetec.co.uk/guitar_parts_uk_041.htm) mostly because I hadn't come across the design before, and was curious about having a different bridge to my existing guitars. However, I haven't been a
  5. My current work in progress. Ibanez JEM Tree of Life style neck, with a self built BC Rich shape body, green invader pickups, a Floyd Rose trem and the middle pickup space will be filled with my own self made infinite sustain pickup.

  6. Straight from the factory or off the shelf, an instrument rarely has its nut slots cut to ideal depths. Generally they are always cut a little high so that the instrument is buzz free out of the gate. For most people, slightly high nut slots go unnoticed and the tougher feel to the strings near the nut gets taken for granted. Before proceeding, ensure that your guitar is correctly strung up to pitch using the string gauges you normally use on that instrument and that your neck is reasonably straight with a little relief as per the previous step in this series. Check that your fretwork is not i
  7. This tutorial is an update on the original by @Brian - all credit goes to him! I bought a cheap Alder body from eBay for a great price, however I wanted to fit a hardtail bridge instead of a vintage six-screw tremolo like it was set up for. The patient whilst I was sanding off the original finish and bad veneer: The plan of action is to rout out the tremolo cavities into accurately-sized rectangles and fit matching pieces of Alder without any gaps. Firstly, I located some Alder with roughly the same grain ring orientation as the body itself. The body is two-piece so
