A drill press set to a high speed will do the job.  At a higher speed (with a sharp bit) will experience less chipping than something slower (like a hand reamer, for instance).......MORE »

You should be able to find the Gotoh details, and you can match them.  The Schaller is typically more expensive, though I really haven't noticed much difference.  I've heard that Tone Pros are just Gotoh bridges......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Replacement bridge for LTD 256

The stock bridge is 12".  The saddle screw does come in different shapes.  I couldn't find any details about the size in a quick search, but the bridge you have is a Gotoh Metric, which is a Nashville style (there......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Question about a viper 400s Bridge

The bridge currently on the guitar should be a Gotoh Metric tune-o-matic.  The way to tell for sure is if the adjustment poles have a screwdriver slot like this:Instead of just the top of a small post like this:  ......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post ESP Telecaster

It's worth what someone will pay for it.  It might be worth $1k, but I think you'd need to find a buyer who understands the age of the guitar and what ESP had available at the time.  Considering the price of similar......MORE »

No, that's always been a bit of an issue with the TOM bridge style.  Some people use slightly taller saddles at the high and low E strings to help compensate for that, but I've never found it to be an issue for my......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Case Scent

Much of the smell comes from the glues used to attach the fabric to the padding and the tolex to the wood.  Some of the smell also comes from the guitar finish itself curing.  As the glue dries (and the finish......MORE »

It was made in 2001, and since it's Korean, I suspect it's an EX-250 or EX-300.  If it says anything other than LTD on the white marker on the fretboard, it would be the model number.  EX is the body shape, the......MORE »

.018 is a pretty small gap at the 7th.  I'm used to 2/64" or 3/64" (around .03" or .8 mm) to the bottom of the low E.  If you get there, you might have an easier time getting to 4/64" or 5/64" (1.5mm to 1.6mm) at......MORE »

Interesting. I've never noticed the backplate thing. I don't believe I've owned a KH-2 or Vintage Plus that had a recessed back plate. I see my dolphin RRR is recessed, but it's nearly LP thickness. I always leave......MORE »

Road King replied to the forum post Need to get rid of one of these...

I own a late 80's ESP that plays and sounds great, so I'd say keep the Mirage. But it probably would bring in more money if you sold it vs the M-I. What a bummer that we could never have the non-trem M-I with a neck pup.......MORE »
