Yes, I have bought from Gregg Rogers (grguitars). Smooth sales and nothing to worry about.

where did all the white witch hats go?

Post by stingrayII » Thu Dec 25, 2014 7:28 pm

seems like 3-4 years ago you could get plenty of white witch hat knobs, but not all of my searches are fruitless. anyone have any ideas where i can get at least 2 white "VOL" witch hat knobs?

thanks!

If you're looking for a great custom pick guard, I highly recommend http://www.pickguardian.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, I talked directly with the sole owner operator to get my AXL pick guard replacement. He has templates for just about every Fender guitar ever including Cyclone II, Toronado, etc.

Has anyone had any experience with this? Kinda wary of the "no returns" policy.

Seems there's a new badass neck supplier in town.
Found "CEG Hardtails" on Reverb when i was looking for a squier mascis neck.

these guys build strat/tele necks and do level, crown, dress, micropolishing - the owner (?) Stephen
even asked me which gauge strings i use (.11s) so that he file the nut slots adequately.
treated me like a king which was awesome since an OSG forumite bailed on me re: a neck.

i got a 9.5" radius CBS-style Strat neck w/ a white tusq nut & hipshot locking tuners for $230 shipped.

I've been out of the loop for at least a long while now...I've started sourcing parts for a lefty partsmaster (see avatar) and the pickguard is proving to be difficult. I need left-handed, white pearloid, standard everything (controls, switches, etc). The template from terrapin guitars is actually a great fit for the body (that's the paper guard in the picture checked for fit), but I don't know if there are any other options out there. Is pearloid so expensive everywhere? $75....ouch! If I have to go that route I will, but I don't know what all my options are any more, or if anyone here is offering custom guards for fair prices.

Johnny, I don't know if you've seen these bodies from Saylor Guitars? I've never dealt with them but I just saw your post and remembered seeing them on eBay. Can't speak to their quality, but I also know no one else is making them, so maybe you'll have to take a shot in the dark.

Is $60 a pretty good deal here? Timbo helped me last time I needed help getting all this stuff in one go but he's been missing in action and I deleted all my messages a while back so there's no record of how much he charged me even so I'm kind of lost here. The AllParts kit (that's out of stock) is $80 and is comprised of the same stuff so I figure it can't be too bad.

Thanks!

I'd go as far as saying 'Excellent deal' as it includes the rhythm circuit bracket and roller wheels, and the right sort of gear (Switchcraft / CTS).

I paid WAY over that for Jazzmaster rhythm circuit parts (pots, roller wheels, bracket, cap) and 2 pots for the lead circuit - I already had Switchcraft jacks and 2-way/3-way switches in my parts drawer.
