    Vintage Strat Tuners

    Sounds like it might be a problem with the nut slots grabbing the strings. Check to make sure the slots are wide enough for the strings.

    Kosssoff's Tailpiece, Bridge,and Stud conundrum

    Yes more then likely the neck is twisted or bowed. As for holy grail guitar/equipment anything, the players fingers and technique are the holy grail. Those players that are worshiped could play any POS guitar and still make it sound amazing. I would like to see more players concentrating on...

    Is this an original bridge?

    SG Harness in Firebird

    Inherited a Rolex. Does Anyone Know About Them?

    Do we like 1974 Les Paul Customs?

    I have a 72 Les Paul Custom that was a basket case when I bought it. The neck needed to be fixed from a bad repair, as well as the fingerboard needing to be completely replaced.
