    For a strat, what is the best 2-point tremolo system?

    Any thoughts on the hipshot contour ? I saw a video where the bushings were too big for the screws. Is that true? Otherwise it looks cool.

    For a strat, what is the best 2-point tremolo system?

    I have a Fender American deluxe. I wish Callaham made a bridge for this. He makes everything else except the bridge plate. I sent an email about it last week.

    Guitar string tension changed overnight

    Hey! In all I turned it a quarter turn. Sight down the neck both directions. For me, I saw that my neck was straight as an arrow. The last owner was not into bending strings. I come from a blues rock upbringing, so I bend. Albert king and Albert Collins are my hero’s. So I bend! Don’t be afraid...

    Guitar string tension changed overnight

    Agreed. I recently bought a beautiful sunburst deluxe 2005 strat, I’m apparently the third owner.

Bends are much easier, vibrato is easy...

    How a guitar is stored on a daily basis

    How a guitar is stored on a daily basis

    I’ve been standing my guitars upright in their cases when not in use for several years now. And they play great. I recently acquired a strat that fretted out at numberous spots. I adjusted relief, string tension and saddle heights. Things improved somewhat, but not significantly. I’d still like...

    Fender American special Telecaster

    ive had it for 6 years now. still love it. the callham bridge with brass saddles work perfectly. the fender locking tuners are great. i was going to change the pick ups, but ive found that simply lowering the pickups cleaned up the sound, and its perfect. no need.
