Used & Abused
I use these hardwares and I can proudly recommend to anyone. My main idea is using scrap, you got shit. The cheaper accessories has seldom good quality. I´ve learned this lesson a couple of times and now I won´t sacrifice anything for a short but fast profit, you know what I´m saying.. In my workshop there are German, Japanese and USA- made equipment exclusively. What you got is what you see!
EMG, Seymour Duncan, DiMarzio, Floyd Rose, Gotoh, Grover, Tonepros, Ernie Ball, Dunlop, CTS, Switchcraft.
If you have your own know-how just go ahead with that, but in the same class. I mean Kluson, Schaller or Kahler. But believe me, there´s no point to save money with cheaper accessories. I guess none will be in a strange situation in the middle of a great solo, build on a Lydian scale and the bridge just releases some strings, or at least one of them. The one you bend. Or the Tone pot creaks meanwhile you´re turning down in a beautiful acoustic part in the front of your fans...
