The stop bar sent by Steel Guitar East did the job just fine, thank you all for helping me solve this issue!

I'd need to see how crowded, how accessible the interior side of the fingers are but a collar on the rod, just behind the changer, limiting this slack movement could maybe work?

No question in my m ...

Thanks Jim, I’ve tried that, but the weight of the lever alone seems to pull it back down and makes the nylon nut go visibly too far out of the changer.

I think I really need something like what ...

Thanks Peter, nice tune! It's very useful to be able to hear the sound like that, it seems less "mellow" than fender maybe, but not bad at all.

I agree Keith, it doesn't seem to depend mu ...

Tucker, I have something in place to solve the issue for now, but I'm in touch with Billy Knowles for an adjustable stop bar.

Jon, I'd be curious to see your video anyway!

Thanks John, so you can tell from the picture that the stop bar is indeed missing?

I don't think I need a longer lever, as it used to work well, but I will get in touch with Billy for the stop bar.

Before (or while) I turn to the zip tie solution, I don’t see the stop bar bolted to the cross shaft, could it have gone missing? Maybe I’m not just looking at the right place: ...

Hello forum,

On my Emmons Legrande SKH, the vertical knee lever has begun to hang lower lately, to the point that I get stuck in it with my inner thigh when coming back from A+F position:

Thanks b0b, I had no idea the B to A# lower mattered for B6! The possibility of having both changes makes me very happy Smile

Are you sure you would rather have 6 lower to F#, than 7 raise to G and G#?
That G on 7 is nice for A7 chords and occasional counterpoint.

Would it make sense, if I leave LKR without half-stop, t ...

This forum's the best place on the net! Thank you all for the time you give to this.

I've restored B to G# on string 12, which was meant to be there.

So if I followed well, we're now looking at ...

It all looks good but I’d lower the low B to G#, too on Pedal 7.

Ok course, thanks for noticing it! I don’t know where it has gone...

My 8 string E is lowered to D on RKR

Thank you Michael, does the 8 string lower engage already before the half-stop, so you also have a 7b on string 2?
