Hi esp, I was wondering, because my g tuning peg keeps going loose and makes the string go out of tune everytime I play my guitar, what locking tuners would you suggest I buy. I have always wanted to upgrade the tuners but I have been scared of damaging the guitar like what I did by putting strap locks on the guitar as it shredded the threading in the wood. I would most likely take it to a shop to have them put them on but was wondering what brand/model you would recommend.

Thanks, Fraser

Hi Fraser, You can tighten the hardware and mounting screw on your current tuner, that should help you with your current issue. If you want to upgrade to replacement tuners, you will not always find a brand that fits our mounting hole exactly. Some locking tuners including our own version use pins located under the housing, so there is no mounting screw "leg" like current tuners. I would recommend either Hipshot or Ratio tuners from Graphtech.

Hi there, I have one of these guitars and it is the Chinese model of it having the ec 256 on the truss rod cover. I was wondering how I could find out what year the guitar was made as the serial number is: RS18051589 

Thanks

Hi Yabbie, I was wondering, if your guitar is the same year as mine, do you have any clue as to what year it was made. Thank you.

Hi,

i absolutely love this guitar, but have realised that there is wax in the humbuckers, is this my fault or is this normal?

YabbieBell

The white stuff in the circular area (don’t know what it is called sorry)

Todd B. ESP

Hi Yabbie, This is nothing to worry about. All pickups are built with a coil of wire around each bobbin and they need to be sealed tightly inside the pickup cover so they don't move around (causes feedback). So most pickup manufacturers seal the coils with a process called "potting" with wax and a vacuum system. You can easily wipe off the wax residue with a soft polishing cloth. Nothing to worry about.

Hi!

I really want to buy this guitar.

Had an opportunity to play it a while ago.

But what bugs me is the warning on the guitar which says it contains Titanium dioxide particles and Methanol which may cause cancer and reproductive issues. Should I be really worried about this? Is there anything I can do so that I can get rid of the Titanium dioxide and methanol on this guitar somehow or take some safety measures?

Thanks.

YabbieBell

I have an acoustic with the same warning, different brand tho, Butler used it for years and I’m fine. It’s probably just a warning as it may cause cancer, but it isn’t a big deal, as only California are looking into this, and no other places

Aditya

Yeah! I hope so! It's crazy how many guitars have this warning these days! I bought the guitar and its a good buy for the money!

Todd B. ESP

Hi Aditya, Hope you like the guitar!

Hi Aditya, For items sold in California all businesses are required to report miniscule amounts of elements which the state of California lists on their Proposition 65 list for carcinogens.

Exposure by inhalation or contact is not likely on an electric guitar. Swallowing or ingesting any guitar parts is not recommended.
