I am speculating, but as best I can tell, Zane must have made them himself. Take a 10-32 or 10-24 by 1 3/4 or longer cap screw (the threads don't go all the way up to the head). Cut it off about 3/8 f ...

Received the bar. Wonderful tone and sustain. It was the 12 in 12.5 that led me to believe it was a shotgun shell. .50 Cal looks great. Gives it a certain "don't mess with me" attitu ...

I don't have a bar with a shotgun shell insert but I do have one ready with a 50 Cal insert OK?

They have a free DVD to mp3 ripper that you can use to get just the audio from a DVD. Once it's mp3, you can transfer it to your phone.
