How do I tune my Rickenbacker 325 John Lennon?
The Lennon Rickenbacker is a bit tricky to tune because the neck is 3/4 the size of a standard guitar (25.5 inches). The trick is to use 'Flatwound Gold Heavy - True Vintage' strings that are designed for the Lennon 325. Second, tune the guitar a half step down than standard guitar tuning. (Half step down tuning is also used by The Edge, Van Halen, and lots of other rockers.)
This is how Lennon kept his 325 in tune.

What is the difference between a Kramer/ESP Nightswan and a USA Nightswan?
Your not the first to ask this question. The body of the USA models are made of mahogany, have ebony fretboards with 'ping pong dot' fret markers, and say Nightswan at the very end of the headstock. The Kramer/ESP models have bodies made of alder, rosewood fretboards, some have the ping pong dot fret markers and some don't. This depends on the model of Kramer/ESP you are purchasing. Nightswan is not written on the headstock. Both come standard with Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo Systems, Seymour Duncan Full Shred Humbuckers in the bridge position and Seymour Duncan JB's in the middle position. Tonal speaking, they are virtually identical.
Can a Floyd Rose directly replace the Takeuchi bridges?
Yes! A Floyd Rose Tremolo System can directly replace a Takeuchi Tremolo System without any modification to the body. Simply remove the Takeuchi, put it up for auction on eBay, and replace it with the Floyd. No muss, no fuss.
