^ hahaha wow that's some bump
(I like to keep my old posts where they belong, lost in the mists of time, so I don't look too stupid )
Swineshead has been out of business for years as far as I'm aware
Nice score on the guitar, looks pretty brootal in the black with mirror guard
It's just the way the pickups are mounted on the body. Active mount is a simpler direct mount since there isn't usually any reason to adjust their height. Passive mount is the far more common setup which is more complex but allows for height adjustment.
and yeah. it's annoying but as you and confuse-a-cat said, I can understand why they do it and you can't really expect them to act any differently or they open themselves up to people doing really silly, unsanctioned stuff and then expecting a refund if it doesn't work.
(a) yeah i haven't got round to doing it either yet, but i do have a couple which are noticeably not as nice as the "good" units- flutter is poor to nonexistent, as you said, sustain is nowhere near as good (for doing whammy tricks, i mean- with a "good" one you can dive, pull back up again, do some more yanking on the bar and the note is still there, not so much with the cheapo ones I have), and even staying in tune is not as good on the lo-trs, though the kramer does stay in tune ok, but then its responsiveness is cack. the ibanez one is pleasantish to use but doesn't stay in tune; the kramer one stays in tune but you don't want to use it. mainly i didn't get round to swapping because studs were a different size and i didn't want to void the warranty
(b) yeah, bingo. if it's a direct swap, as dspellman says, you might as well swap everything, to maintain the warranty and just so you know everything is in good condition, well-made etc.. But if it's not a direct swap, it's a lot harder if you're not mechanically-inclined (and I'm not).
i was going to say i though the gotoh studs were slightly bigger but it seems you already know that
i haven't tried the swap myself- this is of limited help, but IIRC I emailed wdmusic (gotoh dealer here) and was told that using other studs would void the warranty. that was ages ago, though. of course, that doesn't necessarily mean it won't work, just that they won't stand over it if you try it.
Thanks for all the help everyone. I went ahead and locked the nut down a bit tighter(than I was doing before) last night, and its staying in tune perfectly now!
Huh. It got set to private.
Good thing it's still up on youtube, though. Time to find a youtube to mp3 converter.
The Fluke is allright, but I think it's the worst song on Terria.
Great stuff. Tone is a little "biting" for my taste, my the performance was very well done. Nice song choice as well. When your switching chords, a few times i hear what seem to be uninentional harmonics, so you might want to watch out for those.
