Guitar and bass parts discussion forum

While maintaining a page for Schaller parts, I found out that many people have questions I can't answer by myself. Unfortunately, turning to manufacturer doesn't always mean getting any reply, too...

That's why I launched this forum and hope it may help somebody the answers he(she) needs.

I no longer run the forum, but you can discuss everything here (not Schaller's stuff only).

There is only one but: that "everything" should be about guitar/bass or other stringed instruments building, repair etc.

Floating tremelos

I'm playing a standard Jackson with a floyd-rose and recently stuck on a mixed set of srtings (thin gauge high-end, thick gauge low-end) and have had to tune a step flat as I cannot balance the tensions otherwise. Have played with the springs under the plate a bit.
Am wondering if floating tremelos aren't intended for heavy string gauges, or have I overlooked something?

Re: Floating tremelos

I had the same problem with my Ibanez tah has a floyd rose locking-trem. I tried putting higher gauge strings on it and when i tried to tune it to standard tunning the trem would pull up. So I took it to my neares Ibanez dealer and they put an extra spring in the back and re-tuned it for me and I've had heavy gauge strings on it since and it has been fine so you should do the same thing with your Jackson.

Re: Floating tremelos

Yes, a good guitar tech can set-up a Floyd for a custom set of strings (Heavy top, Light bottom). This is a pretty standard thing. You have to set the intonation (with the saddles), the action with the top mounts (wood screws) and the trem should be leveld with the springs in back. Go to the JacksonGuitars website, they have a pretty good tech page on Floyd set-ups.

Try Warmouth. It's a company in Puyallup, WA who specializes in parts and custom bodies/necks. They're great. If they can't help, try Stewart MacDonald. Both companies have websites.

music man bass custom pickguard

I am customizing a new Music Man Stingray 5. I have located a
graphite neck from Status and replacement pickups and electronics
from Seymor-Duncan. In addition to the humbucker at the bridge
I'd like to add a J-style pickup in the neck position without
cutting into the original pickguard. I have yet to find a company
that either produces or will custom make a pickguard that will
accomidate the additional J pickup. Please e-mail me any info that
might help.

Re: music man bass custom pickguard

I ran across a place that will do custom work while looking for a pick guard for an Ibanez ATK 300. The address is www.guitar-parts.com. They were asking more than I wanted to spend.

Kayler Tremelo Bridge Parts

I am after a "String Saddle" for the bottom string (Low E) for a Kayler Tremelo Bridge System (Screw Down Type), that I have on my 1987 G & L Skyhawk Guitar (Seriel Number: G020608)

This string saddle, as I call it, is the small piece, through with the string is inserted on the tremelo bridge.

I have tried a number of places in Brisbane, Australia and have been unsuccessful. I understand that Kayler are no longer around and it is difficult to get parts. Any assistance given would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Re: Kayler Tremelo Bridge Parts

Kayler is still in biz and you can buy new replacement parts from them. Also new if ya want, they are starting to appear on the scene again with companies like Jackson and a couple other guitar manufact.... offering them on guitars again.

Re: Kayler Tremelo Bridge Parts

I have a peavey Tracer guitar with a Kayler tremelo on it that sounds like the one you're talking about. I cant seem to find an arm for it. Did you ever find anywhere to get parts? I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Please email me if you know of somewhere.

Repairing Martin D-18-S

I have a late 1960's Martin D-18-S in very sad shape. It needs a new neck, fingerboard, nut, bridge, saddle, and pickguard (at least). Is it worth fixing? Where can I find parts? Who should fix it? (The factory has politely declined because it is not cost effective.) Any and all input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Floyd Rose floating tremelo

I have a new Ibanez Jem with the Lo-pro Edge tremelo and I think after I re-strung it the end of the thing is too far off
the body sticking up in the air. I cranked the fine tuners down but it doesn't seem to want to go far enough down onto the
body. I'm playing .009 - .042 strings, so I don't think that's it. Any ideas? Thanks.

Bill

Re: Floyd Rose floating tremelo

There should be a plate on the back of the guitar
that houses the tension springs to the tremolo. Remove the
cover and you should see 3-4 springs each hooked to phillips
screws. Tighten each screw about one turn clockwise until
he position of the tremolo is about level. You'll have to
adjust the tuning a few times during the process, but
eventually you'll reach the balance point between the string
tension and the tremolo tension.
