Comment on Ibanez RG470 Project by GideonD http://darkling.poppameth.com/ibanez-rg470-project/#comment-6341 Fri, 28 Jul 2017 12:46:55 +0000 http://poppameth.com/darkling/?p=42#comment-6341 This from the guy who Oohs and Aahs over how “preety” the GEOs are on ebay and begs his “friends” to take his credit card so he doesn’t buy a bunch of crap while he’s hopped up on pain meds. I’m more than happy to let a comment like this stand out there to showcase the stupidity of humanity. There are plenty of reasons that studs may need replaced. Such as the groove that the bridge had cut into this one that was preventing the tremolo from operating correctly. Or the fact that it was cheap pot metal, which is why they developed a groove to begin with. Hardened Steel studs work wonders for actually helping to keep the bridge from going out of tune. Of course if you are playing bottom of the barrel guitars I’m sure you’re use to being out of tune. Go get yourself an education and a GED and you won’t have to worry about swing shifts at McDonald’s anymore.

LMFAO jesus . Youre one of these idiots who insists on an “original 67 strat” (with the plywood body and shitass cheap paint because it’s vintage and i dont know shit about actual tone) arent you. THERE IS NO REASON EVER TO REPLACE THE FUCKING STUDS MORON. Theyre a piece of fucking metal that holds the tremolo. Thats it A fucking NAIL would do the job in a pinch and do it perfectly . Go back to fucking macdonalds.

I bought it at a discount warehouse that gets large shipments of material from drug seizures. There isn’t nearly as great a difference in those types of fabrics as there use to be anyway. Technology kind of moved on. I’d probably classify it as a velour as this typically has a bit of stretch to it and is used for upholstery. I know a lot of the materials this place has are upholstery materials.

I was wondering is that velvet? Looks like it is and I think you mentioned it. But is it true velvet or is it Velveteen; a sort of cheaper velvet looking material.

Comment on Painting a Metal Roof by GideonD http://darkling.poppameth.com/painting-a-metal-roof/#comment-6055 Wed, 09 Nov 2016 14:26:07 +0000 http://poppameth.com/darkling/?p=27#comment-6055 Jeanie,
At this point, I’ve contacted multiple suppliers and gotten zero good information. None of them are willing to spec a coating system for this. They all seem to think there is going to be some major issue with it, but no one is willing to tell me exactly why. I can only assume the existing coating is known to be difficult to recoat and the manufacturers are shying from it to avoid liability. Sorry I couldn’t be more help on this one. I’ve contacted Davis Frost, Sherwin Williams, Devoe, and PPG with no luck. There may be other more specialized brands available in your area that would be worth checking into.

A good DTM would be the best choice.
