    My 1975 (birthyear) Mustang is getting hardtailed today. This Dynamo has got to go. Probobly one of the few things Leo ever got wrong

    I love my hardtail plate! Funny enough, after a year I’m just now swapping back to a tremolo, I haven’t strung it up yet, but I hope I like it. Might have to go back to the hardtail plate if I don’t

    Set up correctly, I love the tremolo on my Mustang.

    The paint is very brittle and already delaminated 20210115_113021.jpg under the original plate

    YALcaster, I'm pretty sure it was your guitar that convinced me to do this

    It's not a setup thing for me, it's where the cigar is placed. It is in the way of close picking/palm muting

    Glad I could inspire you! It’s a fantastic piece (the plate)! I decided to make mine more traditional again after some time, no real reason besides wanting to tinker around.
