The later model S~B levers have a different, wider mount tang than the old teardrops. The best way to add a flag to a teardrop without drilling holes in the lever is to make one with a "U" c ...

Jack and Jack - you should both verify the spacing on your pedals. I have two PPs, one has wide pedals, one narrow. I don't how consistent this was from year to year, but the spacing of the pedals on ...

Changing the leverage on the pedal won't make any difference in timing two pulls on the same pedal as Dave is trying to do here. I think that may be what prompted Brint's question.

Dave, you can place a spring on the rod between the rack and the barrel to force string 6 to engage sooner. You give up the ability to tune the pull easily from the end plate though, will require you ...

The "wall" is the lowering finger. They're meant to be close together. If the guitar has a lot of miles it is likely that the fingers (both raises and lowers) are loose on the axle, which ca ...

Sorry, wrong lingo. 'Shipper' was meant to refer to the carrier - seller sells, buyer buys, shipper (carrier) ships.

His name is Sylvain Pouliot. He has some solo videos on YouTube, really good picker. I think he is from Montreal.

What's the alternative? Just shrug and keep the smashed guitar you just paid $4k for? What if it was poorly packed? Should the buyer take responsibility for sorting it out with the carrier?

I think that is the student Emmons, but they have a good reputation for tone.
It is, a GS-10. The pedals would seem to indicate that it is of a newer vintage, perhaps early 80s? Many have sold here, ...

Chances are you won't need any new parts. I suspect most of the changes you're planning to move around have two pulls per lever. In that case it is usually just a matter of re-positioning the bell cra ...
