Re: Does the carbon neck ever move? (buzz related)

Hi, surely your luthier will quickly determine what the issue is. About your original question, I believe it's fair to assume the neck will not move in normal circumstances, but of course it's not perfect science, as wood can react over time for various reasons (or maybe because it was just a random...

Re: Excalibur Shawn Lane Master signature

Hi,

your new guitar is perfect and as expected to be. Only Customs/Originals have that accessory. All other Excaliburs don't have that holder.

Re: Does the carbon neck ever move? (buzz related)

Hi there, my two cents here .... 1) Kahler nut ... if I recall correctly, early Excalliburs had both Kahler floyds (with the bearings mod) and nuts. Then I believe for some time Kahler nuts stayed and the bridge was replaced with a Schaller made floyd, I've seen those. So, I may be wrong but my bet ...

Re: Kaos et downtuning

I don't see why not, there's 25.5 scale 7 string guitars out there .... Using the Kaos, with a 12-54 set, you get 90lbs tension in that tuning you mention. In that example, it's a bit floppier on the bass strings than usual, so maybe low strings could go a bit heavier gauge. Anyway, you can experime...

Tremolo 2011, G string and saddle

some close up pics may also give some hints ...

are both screws of that saddle touching the tremolo base, or is the saddle "one-leg" like a pirate?

Vigier GV Wood OR GV Rock 

For what it's worth, my amber finish GV Wood is #102. I haven't removed the neck though, so no idea which date may be stamped.

There's another amber GV Wood in Madrid (another owner), which is #101.

well done! great looking axe, congrats again !

you'll be amazed how long it stays in tune, and how resonant it is once you put fresh strings on her.
