    PRS Silver Sky DRAMA with Zach Myers and John Mayer???

    I'm pretty sure that this Zach Myers guy is not the bad guy here. As I understand it, he got flack from PRS for painting his John Mayer guitar pink.

    Mayones vs Ernie Ball Music Man quality?

    Being a potential 4k $ investment, I strongly suggest to take a road trip upon yourself to try one before buying. As an alternative: order a stock model from somewhere with a sufficient return policy. To ease your conscience, you could order your custom through the dealer whose stock you abused...

    Mayones vs Ernie Ball Music Man quality?

    I'd strongly advise to try an in stock model of either brand before comitting to a custom order. Back in 2014 I was hellbent on getting a Mayones Regius, being absolutely infatuated with the looks. I got to try one out and: I hated it! The body edge dug unpleasantly into my forearm, the neck...

    PUP That Sounds Similar to Coil Split SD Nazgul?

    This right here. Got a similar setup in my tele with a blade humbucker in single-coil housing.

    Drop tuners? (Sperzel D-Thing or similar)

    I've never used one and don't think I'll ever have use for one. However, the bass equivalent gets lots of love on another english board where they're talking about bass. If you're bent on getting an ajustable tuning thingie, you should toss hipshot a message whether their product would be...

    Wenge or Bubinga? Which is stiffer?

    They offer their Gecko Bass necks as 5 piece necks. I‘m not aware of any past or present offerings for multi piece necks beside said Gecko necks.

    Wenge or Bubinga? Which is stiffer?

    Because Warmoth only offers single piece necks (there are few exceptions though)

    Have you ever bought a guitar that solved your G.A.S. for a while?

    Yes, I know this one. However, I don‘t like the aesthetics of this model. I‘m pretty picky both about quality and optical properties(yes, I’m shallow like that) of an instrument, therefore my search has been futile so far. I think I will end up with another Mayones at one point, but their...

    Have you ever bought a guitar that solved your G.A.S. for a while?

    I'm satisfied with my Mayones Setius 6 string in drop C and my beater MIM Telly in standard tuning and occasional drop D. I own both since 2015. Before both of them my sole guitar was a Schecter C-1 Blackjack from 2009, which I sold 2 years ago, as it role in my small stable was hijacked by the...

    NGD

    Congratulations, it is a nice looking guitar. However, get that part of your B string between nut and tuner straightened out. This slightly "curvy" run of the string is a guarantee for tuning instability.

    Now, there is also this shop from sweden: https://www.intomusic.se/en/guitars/pickups/strat/dimarzio-dp701bk.html They only offer shipment to sweden in their checkout procedure, but maybe they'll be more cooperative than the guys from benelux. And there is a shop from italy...

    Where can I get a Dimarzio single ?

    Keymusic is located in the Netherlands or Belgium I believe. They list UK as a possible destination under "Shipment and delivery" (https://www.keymusic.com/customer-service/#shipment_delivery). Might be worth it to toss them a message. Worst they can do is say "no". Else I'm pretty sure you got...
