It could be a lot of different things, your description is a little vague. A picture or two would help.

Are you actually talking about raise helper springs? They can cause the sort of problem you ...

I made a few replacement socket head ends for some of those pull rods once, they're made with little binding posts but they are basically just a #10 socket head machine screw cut off to ~3/8". I ...

I think Emma was Betty Jean's younger sister. She was never very good with math.

Looks like a really nice ZB though.

You should verify the string-to-string spacing on those. I believe the standard guitar tuners have narrower spacing than what you need. Mavericks, Fenders and similar are 1" center to center. Th ...

If 11 & 12 are tuned G# and E they would be the same as 10 & 11 in a standard U-12 set, which are typically .042 and .054

Assuming your Maverick is the later style with the recessed tuner pan, Kluson is making a re-issue 4-on-a-plate set (4x4) for Stringmasters that has the same spacing. You would need to cut off one goo ...

Nope, the stops are tuned within the changer mechanism, one raised note and one lowered note. You could rig some sort of half stop on the pull side, but it would be very imprecise because of the inher ...

There is no logical reason to have a shaft at all.

You might find it more useful to put the isolated string 4 F# raise on a knee so you can use it together with the A&B pedals, and keep the traditional C pedal too. I have this on the same knee tha ...
