From the interwebs:
The bicarbonate (even water) starts the reaction between one cyanoacrylate and another one. The bicarbonate and cyanoacrylate form an ion which reacts with another cyanoacrylate molecule. This starts a chain reaction (polymerization) which ends up a very good adhesive.
I like the ability to cotrol both convexity and concavity, but I am not a vintage purist. Options are often a workaround for perfect workmanship. Mass production does not lend itself to perfection, IME, IMHO, & YMMV.
My EVH Special/Standard Minimum upgrades:
+Ti String Block Inserts
+SS Hex screws -- all of 'em, bridge and nut
+Big Block or L Block--Brass, Naval Brass, or Ti
-Get rid of the spacer-tone sucker
Optional but highly recommended:
MIRACLE CLOTH is the same. better and cheaper. Miracle Cloth is made by DUNLOP. Works great on Ebony, and Rosewood for me. I use TruOil Paste Wax on my bare maple fingerboards and necks, but MC on all frets.
That Pedal Show doesn't take advertisements. They are opinionated, in marketing themselves (Mick as a consultant, expert & Dan as a product designer) and are pretty up-front if they like something or not. My fav. YMMV.
