    Envoy Guitars = ViK (Seriously, f*ck this guy.)

    The tenon i use goes all the way to the back of the neck humbucker cavity - I definitely would not feel good about it with no tenon. Story! When i moved in 2010 out of my house and we were tossing all the dead guitar bodies and necks, one of the disposal guys decided to Pete Townsend the solid...

    Is it best to pass on used BRJ guitars?

    The side dot indicators were dabbed on with white enamel paint! >.0 That in itself should shoo you away! I think the worst task I had to do was removing the all the glue from the fretboard without destroying it. I'd put money on the truss rod "slot" being filed out with a rasp - just...

    Guitar/Luthier Life Hacks Thread

    Use a short dowel to hammer in string ferrules. You'll never hit the guitar surface and the wood won't dent/scuff the metal.

    RAN guitars offline. Did they close? Update: Trouble Relocating

    It's seriously something that we're going to very loudly disagree on man. I'm sorry. This really is one of those things where i'm going to be incredibly stubborn and mean so imma bow out before i piss more people off. :( This is one of those topics that puts me into the wall of text mode...

    RAN guitars offline. Did they close? Update: Trouble Relocating

    I'm most definitely not going to pretend it didn't happen because i'm not stupid. I also wrote that "if you can't afford a PRS dragon, you shouldn't buy it, that's how capilism works." I was initially confused by the mindbendingly stupid rationale of saving for an expensive guitar removing...

    RAN guitars offline. Did they close? Update: Trouble Relocating

    Where in the name of sweet Jesus did you read that? I bought a used Charvel while saving up for the insanely expensive Ibanez. Oh - i got this from a dictionary online. adjective believing oneself to be inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment. "kids who feel so entitled and...

    RAN guitars offline. Did they close? Update: Trouble Relocating

    If you can't afford the dragon, you can't afford it. Welcome to the free market and how it works. Just because you feel entitled, and thats exactly what it is, doesn't mean you get to skirt laws in place that were created to stop bs like this. When i was in high school, i did something...

    RAN guitars offline. Did they close? Update: Trouble Relocating

    It's very close to home and something I have experience with. I've sent cease and desists and oddly the law was on my side. That's something else you should probably investigate as you seem clearly uneducated about it. The free market is typically governed by legalities and not feelings...

    RAN guitars offline. Did they close? Update: Trouble Relocating

    When you hone and perfect your craft only to have some jerkoff say "well, your work is expensive so I should be able to rip it off because i can't afford the real thing". Watching the mental gymnastics of people justifying this is hilarious. It's like saying "I want a Tesla, but I only have...
