    Ed Hawley Tele?

    Hey guys, Does anyone happen to have Ed’s cad files for the 72 Deluxe? Seems all the links I’ve clicked on are dead :( My friend recently inherited his grandfathers CNC machine and we’d love to try that build out. Neither of us are up to date with AutoCad so looking for something that won’t...

    Nitro not checking, help!

    That was my first attempt with heating it with a heat gun and using canned air, but that didn’t work. When I searched online I saw people mention sticking it in the freezer over night, that didn’t work either. my main question is if it didn’t check before, is there more of a chance of it...

    Nitro not checking, help!

    Nitro not checking, help!

    Hi guys, so I have a nitro body but it just seems to want to check at all. I tried heating it with a hair dryer and heat gun with compressed air which didn’t work. Tried putting it in the freezer for 3 hours then hit it with a heat gun, didn’t work. Tried freezing overnight and used heat gun...

    Kluson Deluxe vs Pure Vintage vs Gotoh tuners

    maybe they’ve been replaced with other tuners. Any tuners you’d recommend that look similar to klusons but have a slightly bigger button?
