Locking tuners seem to be the retrofit rave these days, yes they can help with tuning issues but make sure you have checked the obvious things first like, trem, nut, crappy strings and loose parts etc.
Here I show you how to fit some inexpensive (but good quality) new locking tuners to your favorite axe, I also point out some pitfalls when purchasing (mainly due to making sure you check measurements before purchasing).
I purchased my locking tuners (or machine heads) from here: http://axetec.co.uk/guitar_parts_uk_060.htm
They always have the specs and measurements on the same page which takes the guesswork out of purchasing the right tuners.
There are many ways to set up a pedalbaord but there are a few facts that we may overlook that can be detrimental to the sound of your setup, from poor sounding leads to power supplies that are just not up to the job, it can be quite frustrating not knowing a few of the facts highlighted in this enlightening video.
I biggest issue is that it can affect your overall sound which for a guitarist is a very big issue.
Is your guitar pick slipping through your fingers?
If your guitar pick is slipping in your hands its probably due to you sweating, there are many gripped picks/plectrums out there that claim to solve this issue, many dont, some kinda do but mostly its a waste of time.
Being a pro at sweaty hand picking (LOL) I can tell you I have tried many different options ideas and designs, and as I'm not selling you anything or being paid to tell you what the best option is I may be able to help you solve this issue once and for all.
As ever no company has solved this issue, perhaps its a manufacturing issue, I'm not sure. Follow my steps on this video, give it a try and please send me any of your comments.
Here I bring up the subject of pickup height for your guitar pickups, there is no set rule so I discuss the the good and the bad points of height placement. Remember that every person, pickup and guitar is different so we will all have a different preference but the main rules still apply.
Many people just wind the pickup as near to the guitar strings as possible to get as much gain and treble as possible, although this may work well when practicing the real trick is to get a nice even well rounded sound with more complexity and dynamics in the sound.
Will let you decide, please comment I really want to know what you think.
So I got this sticky guitar nut on my guitar, guitar is an explorer type guitar so is a bit worse case scenario but works great, just a bit of filing to let the strings run through.
