Great topic people! Sorry if this counts as hijack but i feel that its unnecessary to open another topic. At the moment im in a similar situation like what Big Willie Style had experienced. Ive just got my blackstar ht60 which sounds amazing, and im getting away from my line6 x3L as well and going t...

Paladin2019 - i dont really mind about marks if they do come up as i will be replacing the tail piece hopefully soon anyway. I was doing some googles a while back about tail wrapping and on i think it was mylespaul forum, some folk said that the sweet spot is where you have your strings - bridge - t...

Okay marcus i will take your words and give it a try next time i restring it. :) When i said it takes a lot more effort to do vibrato's i meant it will take a lot more effort to get the same vibrato effect when compare to non wrap around since the string tensions are now less? :roll: but yeah, i wil...

Well, the reason now that i dont want to do the wrapping yet is because after some research i find that it takes more effort to do vibros and i didnt like that idea much. Apparently it also makes palm muting more comfort but i dont think thats enough for compensation. They also said screw the bridge...

I found the neck too muddy in mine too so I replaced them with a set of LeoSounds Growldogs. Check them out online. They sound great and are probably around the same price for a set of handwound pickups as the SD Slash. I actually find the neck to be okay on distortion but its very muddy on the bri...

They are a nice looking guitar. So, how much did it cost, all up, including the fret level, etc? Its about 1.5k AUD all up from what i can remember on top of my head, guitar+case+shipping+setup. Money well spent id say, even though i couldve gotten a higher end Tokai with the same money :roll: on a...

Yeah Diamond, i will leave all the things you mentioned alone for now. Took the pickguard off btw, looks much better for the moment. Took it to a very good guitar tech yesterday (Perry Ormsby if anyone knows) and gave it a good setup and fret leveling. Now the guitar plays like butter and the sustai...

-If the pickups are sounding a little weak, see if you can raise them up to be closer to the strings. From the picture it looks like they are still pretty low. The bridge pickup can be as close as a couple of mm from the strings when you fret at the last fret. The neck pickup should be a bit farthe...

No, you have to remove the whole pickup and unsolder the cover from the pickup base plate. There will be a fat blob of solder on each of the long sides that are used to join the bottom edge of the cover to the edge of the base plate. ahhhh, sounds like quite some work if i dont like what it will tu...
