Just in case someone cares...(doubtful :) ) My use of Google's DNS servers seems to have been causing the issue. Reconfigured my router to use my ISP's DNS and voila! Fix0red.

Please, anyone,
is there a European company that sells all the screws needed for a Jazzmaster?
I tried http://www.guitar-parts.nl/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
, but they don't have the tremolo-screws and the height-adjustements for the pickups.
The regular pickguardscrews, neckscrews+neckplate in nikkel can be ordered from them.
I'd like to have one adress where I can order everything from , and I'd like to avoid import taxes from the American companies.
Thanks a lot.

Dang, I just tried to swoop on that neck and run with that idea, but they're sold out :squint:

Merci pour l'adresse.
J'avais déja régardé ce site, mais raté les vises qui sont en fin du liste.
Le même problème ici: pas des vises spécifiques pour le tremolo et les micros.
Néanmoins, j'ai commandé des vises a fixer le bridge d'une bas avec dimension 3x25mm(une fraction trop épais, je croix) et des réglages d'hauteur micros bas 1,12x35 mm
J'éspère que ca va aller.

Will 3x25mm for trem screws and 1,12x35mm for height-adjustement screws do the job?

All I can say is think twice before ordering from Angela's Inst. Ripped me off on postage & one of the parts has failed after less than a month. I paid $15 postage, they paid $3.96 - according to them that's fair, and no refund should be offered. Apparently I'm a feedback extortionist for asking for a refund on excessive postage (as defined by e-bay policy). >:(

Are there a lot of places that ship to the UK? I'm not suggesting getting a whole section for UK or Europe but a lot of the recommendations are for the US, which has all the best sites but costs so much to ship stuff here.

Add me to the list of people with bad Angelas instrument service. I messaged on ebay just to ask if their so called NOS mustang tremolo springs really did fit vintage mustangs (the allparts ones are about a 1/4 inch longer than actual vintage). He sent me a rude email about how they do and blocked me from bidding on his ebay store. I created another ebay account and bought the springs, turned out they are just a slightly discolored more expensive variation on the allparts ones ie are also 1/4 inch longer.

Hi!

The angela's stuff are expensive for most of all!! :ph34r: and they only sell the US vibrato for jaguar in a kit, you have to look for all to thing you need and built it by yourself..

An ebay seller called joshmr is more affordable.. But less choice..

Dang!

The shipping fees from US to Sweden have gone totally haywire lately. Angela now charges $65 for a package overseas!!!??!! :wtf:
They charged like $29 two years ago for an equal package and was with that price one of the most expensive alternatives.

Also a small package on a part I won on ebay costed $50 in shipping.... two years ago it would have been $15 tops.

Is this due to the weak dollar that they have to raise the shipping fees, or did I just ran into two rotten apples the same day? :-/
Someone knows where I can find the nearest woodchipper to throw my pieces of junk into?

Here's an unsolicited plug for Warmoth. I recently screwed up an online order for an offset build that I'm doing using several Warmoth parts. I thought that I'd be hit with a hefty re-stocking charge or penalty since it was my fault and there had been some custom cutting done. Well, after speaking with the sales manager there, I only ended up having to pay shipping on an even exchange for what I needed. They were cooler about it than I thought might be the case. Will definitely be coming back to them again.
