    Schecter Nick Johnston Traditional replacement pickguard

    Got a quick "no" from Schecter tech support, even for an HSS guard. I do have to give them big ups for sending me a replacement trem arm set screw free of charge a few months ago, though! If anybody reading this has an HSS guard they'd want to swap for my SSS, I'd be down. Loaded or not.

    Schecter Nick Johnston Traditional replacement pickguard

    Okay, I definitely stated in the original post why I want a replacement and acknowledged that I could send in a tracing. Many custom pickguard companies are either prohibitively expensive, backed up, or not taking orders at all right now, so I was hoping someone knew of an off-the-rack solution...

    Schecter Nick Johnston Traditional replacement pickguard

    It’s the import Diamond Series but the newer version with roasted neck may be different from the original. Mine has the swimming pool route.

    Schecter Nick Johnston Traditional replacement pickguard

    Has anyone been able to source a replacement pickguard for their Nick Johnston Diamond Series? I've been thinking about converting to HH pickup configuration (the guitar has a swimming pool route) but have been unable to find any examples of replacement guards. Of course I could send in a...

    Pedals that lived up to the hype that caused you to buy it

    Not sure the TGP hype machine is still cooking on this one, but the Suhr Riot is the first high gain distortion pedal that I've been happy with after being an amp gain guy for so long.

    New Schecter - Jack Fowler Traditional

    I just took home a Nick Johnston and it's probably the nicest sub-$1000 guitar I've ever played. Love the combo of modern features and vintage aesthetic. HH variant is a nice option!

    Recovered! PRS DGT and Baja Telecaster

    It's been sold a few times over the years and I hadn't been able to recover it. In 2018 it was listed on eBay by a pawn shap but the case fell between the cracks (jurisdictional transfer, missed communications) and things didn't work out. Apparently since then it had even travelled down to Texas...

    Recovered! PRS DGT and Baja Telecaster

    Happy ending: this DGT is finally coming home. After a couple of attempts it was recovered today. My parents are holding it for me until its safe to visit again.

    Which bent steel saddles for Gotoh 510? (narrow spacing?)

    As a follow up, received the Highwood 10.5mm saddles after a couple of weeks of international postage, and restrung. They did the trick! The extra brightness and snappiness was just what this axe was missing for me, especially for the single coil sounds.

    Good Bye Les Paul... Hellooo All MusicMan line up!

    Briefly owned the Albert Lee HH in both trem and hardtail... would love to have one again. Such great axes.

    Which bent steel saddles for Gotoh 510? (narrow spacing?)

    Okay, but if the saddles on my bridge are 10.5 (which they are), the the 10.8s you said won't fit.

    Which bent steel saddles for Gotoh 510? (narrow spacing?)

    They're 10.8mm, which is too wide for this version of the bridge. I found a note on their website where they have updated the spacing of the height screws to fit the slots in the 510 baseplate. I went ahead and ordered a set from them on Reverb.

    Which bent steel saddles for Gotoh 510? (narrow spacing?)

    I'm sure this has come up a few times, but couldn't really find a good answer. I have a Charvel DK24, and love pretty much everything about it, except I want to bring back a little bit of the Strat zing and airiness from bent steel saddles. What are the best bent steel replacement saddles for...
