    nuts...

    looking to upgrade a free fx 260.

    which nut should i go with earvana or bone? or...?
    i might even try making some out of the antlers i found in the yard...

    have done a bit of work on guitars, but no nut work, doesn't seem too hard though.

    also, thinking of going with a het set. anyone ever squeeze a nine volt into the pot/switch compartment?

      i'd go with graph tech nut and saddles.
      and locking tuners :D

      no problems in sticking a 9v battery in the control cavity either.

      good luck!

      if you do that, just make sure not to short out the flux capacitor

      ...or would i? muahahaha
      i have thought about wrapping it in stainless steel (better aerodynamics = better tone).

      i'm going to go with a babicz bridge.
      i found some locking gotohs i'm going to get. i wanted 510s but noone has them. wish somebody actually sold some of the parts that are apparently made. schaller has a huge catalog, but i don't think they actually make any of the stuff in it, except for strap locks. all of the retailers HATE that company.

      i'll look into the tusq.
