    I am buying a Fender Strat (I think) pretty soon. I am looking at the American Standard and also the American Deluxe. Can't decide what options for colors or woods that I like. I have heard that the maple neck as opposed to the rosewood neck has a brighter sound and is somewhat faster playing...

    well...anything odd you do with your guitar? for example, like Vai, do you stuff your spring cavity with tissue papers? like Van Halen, do you boil your strings? if you have a floyd rose, do you leave your nuts locked, and cut the excess string from the head stock, or unlocked and keep changing...

    I know (like the tuning thread) everyone has their own way of doing things but of all the people I talk to and share my little "ritual" with, they all say hands down, I have the most labor intensive, extravagant string changing routine they've ever heard of but ultimately deliver the most...

    I had a student come to me today asking me to make the entire lesson on tuning his guitar. I thought that this was pretty advanced thinking for a kid, so it inspired me to start this thread I remember when I was starting to play guitar, tuning was always an issue for me. That was a long time...

    Anybody have any experience with Grover locking tuners? I'm not exactly sure how they work since there's no knob to twist and I'm curious about their long term durability. I'm thinking about replacing the regular Grovers on my C1 Classic with the locking tuners. Any info/advice?

    I was looking at possibly having a floyd rose locking tremolo system installed in my guitar, however I was wondering if its by all means practical. I have a ibanez strat essentially and I was wondering are guitar techs able to put one in and typically how much do they run for, I would normally...
