Yesterday I pulled the old strings off of my R7 Goldtop, oiled the board, cranked the Tone Pros stop tail studs down to the face of the guitar, Locked a Skull Island Unobtanium Tailpiece into the Studs (this tailpiece literally weighs nothing, some kind of machined space aged alloy or something) installed a set of new Snake Oil Strings 10-46 by wrapping them up over the top of the stop bar. Stretched em out good, tuned up and plugged into the Baby Marshall. Result.... The LP opened up like I've never heard it before. More clarity and definition, better sustain. There's significantly less down pressure on the bridge, which I thought would be a detriment to the overall tone, but I was wrong. The guitar sounded really good before, but this simple move has boosted it that last 10%. Since the Scalars sound better as they age and settle. I'm curious to see how it sounds today.
