How do you remove the main fuse cover to replace the main fuse

ovation (1970's) inside battery repair

my battery holder inside my Legend is not attached to the body. How do I attach it? There is a screw through the body which appears to go into a plastic cover that is inserted into a rubber wheel-like piece on the back of the battery holder. But the screw doesn't grab anything and the the battery caddy doesn't stay in. Do I need a part? Are parts available? thanks!

battery holder

The screw has fins check the battery holders female hole make sure that it has not been bent. If it has carefully reshape hole to jive. With this in mind
I think you can do it. Of course take off the strings first.

SHS SMX 3750

I bought an SHS SMX 3750 powered mixing amp that doesn't work. After pulling it apart, I noticed the main circuit board is fried. Can this be fixed or replaced by someone other than a technician? Wondering if I can buy a new board and solder the parts onto it. Have fixed these before, but don't know where to get this particular board. I did email SHS, so am waiting for a response there. But the board number says NO:368 Rev:1.1 3-power amp. Would take a lot of work resoldering all onto a stripped one, but has to be cheaper than complete if can get it.
Thanks,
Tim

You didn't specify what gauge strings you use. If there's a thinner gauge you're comfortable with, try them, that should give you a little room for adjustment. Also, don't press down too hard as you check the fretted note against the harmonic. You could make the fretted note too sharp.

epiphone les paul

theres something wrong with my epiphone les paul ... it was working fine and one day when i was playing this loud buzzing sound started coming from the amp.. i thought it was the amp at first but then i realized it was the guitar... someone plz tell me what to do..

My stepson brought home a broken series10. The neck is fubar split vertically in half. I want to get a replacemnt neck exactly like it.
However I cant find the manufacturer, anyplace that sells this type of electric guitar. I know its prolly like k-mart quality but I am eager to fix it to original.

seeking 24 fret ibanez neck

RECENTLY A FRIEND GAVE ME AN IBANEZ AX. ITS THE SUPER STRAT TYPE BODY WITH THE 3 P/U CONFIGURATION , FLOYDE ROSE. IT SEEMS TO BE A VERY NICE AX & ALTHOUGH THE NECK IS VERY BADLY BOWED I DID PUT ON NEW STRINGS JUST TO HEAR THE SOUND OF THE P/U'S AND BODY. IT SOUNDS SO GOOD , I'M NOW DEDICATED TO FINDING A NECK FOR THIS BEAST. THE NECK HAD BEEN CRACKED AT THE HEAD STOCK NEAR THE NUT (COMMON?) & WHO EVER OWNED IT PUT EPOXXY & PLASTIC WOOD IN THE CRACK!!! NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS DID NOT REMEDY THE PROBLEM IF FACT IT ONLY COMPOUNDED IT. I WOULD LOVE TO FIND AN IBANEZ NECK BUT I WOULD SETTLE FOR A REPLACEMENT NECK THAT FITS THE GUITAR. I'M LOOKING FOR A MAPLE FRET BOARD & IT IS A 4 SCREW WITH THE OLD STANDARD METAL PLATE TYPE OF SET UP AS OPPOSED TO THE LOW PROFILE SCREWS WITHOUT ANY PLATE (NECK ATTACHMENT). I HOPE I'VE BEEN FAIRLY CLEAR WITH MY DESCRIPTION. I AM NOT TOO FAMILIAR WITH IBANEZ SINCE I NEVER OWNED ONE BUT THIS IS ONE NICE AX & I'M ANXIOUS TO GET IT TOGETHER & PLAYIN'.

Squire Strat broken Neck

I recently took the nectk off my 86 Squire Strat to check a serial number. Putting the neck back on i "bumped" it just above the part where the neck and the body meets, with the screws NOT in fully. This broke a small piece of the neck,if the neck was fully fastened the break which is surface (less about 5mm) could be sanded down. IS this a recommended procedure?

Knob repair

I'm sort of a newbie at the whole guitar thing. I'm more of a piano person and has always wanted to try my hand at the bass. I have a slight problem. My tone knob on the body of the bass is loose. Does anyone know if I should try to fix it myself (with advice, of course) or if I should get it fixed professionally? Please help.

Re: Knob repair

try takeing the knob off (just the know part, try pulling on it/ or look to see if theres a small hex screw to loosin the knob) the see if theres a nut, like a 6-sided nut, try tighting it with your fingers, the go to you back of guitar, or usnder your pickguard and hold the back of the intire knob unit, and tigten the same nut as before, there may also be a nut on the inside of the pickguard, in the back of the bass (under the litte plastic/metal protective door,) tighen that nut also. then put th e knob back on before putting the guard back and see it it's tight enough, if so replace the pickguard/back guard and bass it up

Cracked Taylor

What can I do about the back of my Taylor 414ce? It is cracking in several places, the longest crack is about 6" long. The cracks haven't affected the sound..yet. I think they may be caused by the dry air. I'd appreaciate any advise on the care and repair of this instrument.
