    I played Robbie Hart in The Wedding Singer (The Musical)... does that count?



    Pretty sure my musical talents qualify me to play the triangle... and that's about it.

    This thread needs a resurrection.

    BOOM.


    I've got a sharp looking AXL Fireax guitar I put my George Lynch 90s Screamin Demon in (before they became crap)
    [​IMG]

    and it all went to hell one day when the part of the tremolo bridge got broken (still don't know how, checked it out one day, and it was snapped) I then, about a year later, took off the tuning keys, the bridge pickup, and the output jack for parts to other various projects.


    Then I came across the site Guitarpartsonline.com, and they have EVERYTHING guitar part related for insanely cheap. They have a hardtail bridge on there for 12.99, and the tuning heads for like 20. They get nothing but good reviews when I googled them as well.

    Should I resurrect it? There would still be a gap there where the Tremolo was, but I really don't care. It's been sitting around for a long time, and it deserves better.

    That is cheap indeed. I've done a few Warmoth kits but they never are that nicely priced..
    Check out http://reranch.com/ if you wanna paint that guitar on the cheap...

    Thanks. I don't trust my painting skills at all, or else I would. I think I'm gonna use Tru Oil on it, I hear it is almost dummy-proof and looks good. I'd love to have a see-thru blue finish to show off the flame top though.

    how did your kit guitars turn out? I've bought a neck and other parts from warmoth, but I found this place that is so cheap, don't think I'll be going back.

    My entry for today:

    Surfing CL and found somebody nearby selling an MXR script logo 1974 Phase 90 reissue pedal for $60. Been looking for one for a while, so I scooped it up. Still haven't plugged it in yet...

    I am an bassist but have experience in Bb baritone and trombone, also getting ready to pick up violin after I find a good used one for sale on CL.

    As far as your drum set question...Sonor! Tools Danny Carey plays Sonor and it sounds really good. Just my humble opinion.
