    When you setup your guitar, do you wing it or use one of these...

    I just wing it but if I was into doing my own fret work then maybe I'd have to consider a new tool or two...

    What will a refret do to the binding of my Les Paul?

    That's probably it!! This photo shows a dude performing a process which puts me in mind of the marks I've seen on the bindings too...

    Floyd: larger sustain block?

    I can't say much more than what is in my first post on this thread really. It is such a quick upgrade in my opinion I don't know why more people don't do it before replacing pickups.

    What will a refret do to the binding of my Les Paul?

    I have. They are interesting in my opinion...but I don't recall seeing that part of the process in the tour vids that I've seen.

    What will a refret do to the binding of my Les Paul?

    Someone who went on a Gibson tour told me that there was a lady there using a scraper doing something to the neck and it was during a discussion about bindings. It seems to me that it was a piece of glass...maybe... It would be interesting to see that process!!

    What will a refret do to the binding of my Les Paul?

    I don't know the answer to that one mc5nrg. I thought that they always had them like that with bindings. I'll tell you one thing though...the sloppiness of the binding work is what made my decision to buy a Studio instead of one of the fancy ones. I love Gibson, I think the Les Paul is the...

    Floyd: larger sustain block?

    Both of the guitars I put the larger blocks in are Kramers. One is a Kramer F-1000 and the other is an American Series Pacer Custom II. I don't think you'd run into any Kramer from the 1980s that would require any routing. F-1000 and the Pacer Custom II is on the left

    What will a refret do to the binding of my Les Paul?

    I noticed that in the first second of viewing that photograph. Stunning. Craftsmanship like that is very admirable. That dude must be a perfectionist...wow.

    Floyd: larger sustain block?

    That's a mean looking guitar there...is it an LTD with an ESP label? Just wondering as I see so many people doing that now. The Frankenstraat block will go into most guitars without extra routing. I don't think you should be upset about that routing though...it was probably just a 'sliver'...

    dumb question re:fender bridge

    I am sure that the screw in type has no way to 'hold it in place' aside from screwing it all the way in...maybe someone has a trick to that that I don't know of. I know the screw in Floyd Rose and FR style have a nut behind the arm with a poly bushing that can be tightened to hold them in place...

    Good Electric: $300-$600?

    Just a short note...many of the 'style' elements of Schecters are from ESP/LTD. Since ESP bought Schecter they say that it is run as a completely distinct operation but the evidence is all over the guitars themselves. So really, it is difficult for me to see how somone could be a fan of one but...

    dumb question re:fender bridge

    No. Does that arm 'screw in' or 'click in'?

    Floyd: larger sustain block?

    I have done this on two guitars. I just thought that if the block was bigger that the vibrations would be going through more material so my sense of logic said that it would have to make a difference. Below is a standard Floyd Rose block beside a Callaham replacement. You can see the difference...

    Good Electric: $300-$600?

    For $600 on the used market you can get SO MUCH!! Too much to list. If he doesn't know what sound he particularly likes...what look does he like? -I see used USA Strats for $600 sometimes. -LTD 400 Series and up...any model. -Ibanez makes a tonne of guitars that are in that price range new...
