New Brass Tremolo for my #Fender #Stratocaster. Thanks to Frankie from G&M guitars and parts. #upgrade

It took me a while to adjust the tremolo base and screw pivots because the new tremolo came with a very short opening on its base. Took it to a locksmith nearby to have it filed and it worked like a charm.

I adjusted the new block with the old claw and springs because they have been loosen up well with my using the tremolo constantly… Here you can see the pictures of my old trem and the pictures of the new brass trem before and after installation. 

Thanks to G&M guitars and parts in Guangzhou for supporting me in this project.

Adding a Big Muff #EHX to my pedalboard. To tame a wild beast!  — August 15, 2015

Adding a Big Muff #EHX to my pedalboard. To tame a wild beast! 

Some decades ago it was the only way to go but nowadays with so many overdrive and fuzz pedals the Big Muff is just a reference for some dedicated tone seekers.  Will work with it for some weeks until I get to tame this wild beast.  I also added the JOYO FX switch PXL8 to start a clean FX list. I also added an EP Booster right after all the pedals before the amp.
