    In original box, I bought this set of pickups for a project that just hasn’t happened. They come from a really good seller who said they have seen little use. They look perfect with plenty of wire there. These are hand wound, highly regarded pickups, said to capture the magic of 69 pups and 57...

    Anyone know of a place in Ontario that cuts plastic cheap? Basically, I have a few backplates that need made and aren't regular sized. I can draw them up in Illustrator as an EPS file... plan was to print, glue down to the 3-ply and cut but, if cheap enough I'd love to be able to just send a...

    I recently picked up a pair of El Degas Les Pauls. One I’m just going to reassemble and see if I can make it work/play and turn it out for a couple bucks or trade for something. The other (black custom) will be the basis of this thread. I’m going to fix it up the best I can and give it to my...

    I see a lot of very nice and realistic looking decals on eBay for headstocks and fretmarkers... some are actual Abalone, very thin, others some sorta vinyl I suspect. Trying to find where you can get custom ones done. Like, if I design something in illustrator and send an eps file, who can cut...

    I'm building a guitar from stock fender parts and I decided that I wanted to put together a Mustang, I really like their shape and sound. Although I really like the Mustang, it's a short scale guitar and I don't think that the neck scale is right for me. Does anybody know how I can put a normal...

    OK, so I broke down and drove up to TO and got this guitar off of Pete (Faracaster). Yes, I know I just acquired the Clapton Blackie about a month ago. It is now gone, along with the other 10 or so strats I have owned over the years. The Blackie was superb in terms of build quality, but I just...
