  1. It's not really corroding the gold. It corrodes the steel under it, and loosens the bond. Plating looks impervious, but it's not.
  2. You couldn't be more correct. Nothing irks me more than managers and business people making engineering decisions, knowing that in a few weeks or months myself and the other engineers will have to pick up the pieces. Funny how the engineers seem to take on the blame as well.
  3. It was easy when it moved fast. Used to have to bump threads to keep it on the first page for more than 30 min. Now it's more like 30 days.
  4. Not really DIY if you are having someone else do the work, is it? Anyway. Good luck with the project.
  5. Does that tension bar have a roller on it?
  6. Yeah. Those give roller bridges a bAd name. Try the Wilkinson roller bridge if you still aren't happy. It's a much better design IMO. https://www.stewmac.com/parts-and-hardware/all-hardware-and-parts-by-instrument/electric-guitar-parts/electric-guitar-bridges-and-tailpieces/tune-o-matic-bridges/locking-roller-bridge.html
  7. Which roller bridge did you try? I have a Wilkinson with a bigsby and it never rattles. The schaller type are more prone to rattle IME.
  8. Backlash and friction are high in worm drives. They are also inefficient in terms of motion input vs motion output. They also only accept input from one side. That's why the string tension doesn't unwind your tuners. A trek needs to accept input motion from both sides, from the arm and from the springs.
  9. No experience with the first one, but it certainly looks interesting. IMO the electromatic series are great guitars if you plan on swapping out the pickups. The OEM pickups aren't bad, they just aren't very gretschy.
  10. Digikey is another good electronics supplier for non-guitar specific stuff. Only see the audio listed, at this one. https://guitarelectronics.com/cts-300k-audio-taper-volume-tone-pot/
