The only way I can kind of understand your method is that perhaps you find it easier to visualize interv ...

+1 on the rolled threads - I've been caught out with those.

When I built my own PSG I used a mixture of steel and Al for the pedal rods to see if I could tell any difference and I couldn't. But my ...

The size is almost certainly #10-32 and aluminium is easy to thread. WD40 is good lube if you have nothing fancy, although you don't have to use anything.

I avoided the C6/B6 confusion by tuning my back neck to B6 right from the beginning. I already had a feeling I would go the uni road at some point.

This advice is clearly useless if you've played a ...

The volume pedal is part of the instrument. You wouldn't put anything between the fiddle and the bow.

The obvious exception is a matching device, which would be like the rosin.

Hi John - it would be helpful if you could describe what you've done so far. What is the "chart" of which you speak?

A 12-string uni with all the basic back-neck changes is quite feasible ...

Jon, how can a big fat thing like string 9 fail? I tune 2 to C# and raise it in two steps; meanwhile 9 goes up from B to D. Same on all three of my guitars and never a problem. In any case the A pedal ...

How could anyone not love these? Keep in mind that the Excel has 12 strings, two unique extended 12 string tunings and the equivalent of 8 pedals and 10 knee levers:

When Stage One stops working it falls off and you're on to Stage Two.
