Which ones?
A Cloud Nine and a Black Sand to go in my Tele Master.
Nice. P90's and tele's are a match made in heaven imo.
It had GFS mean 90's in it previously, so will be an interesting contrast.

Put some graphite powder in the nut slots - rolling a pencil tip should do it.

Get some real fine sandpaper - 1200grit+ - bend in half (or 3rds, or 4ths etc depending on the nut width) and polish the nut slots. Use a drop of water to lubricate/wet polish. Be careful not to deepen the slots - you’re just polishing them up.

See if that helps

I looked for a gold one a few months ago for my LP Custom Black Beauty but they were out. This is for my Eastman, so I bought a nickel one... the simpler one, can't remember what it's called. Not the Radiator one.

Nope... the Duesenberg Diamond Deluxe Trem. We have a few forumites sporting Les Trems on various guitars. They're good too, and easier to install. My choice was purely aesthetics, not aware of any functional benefits over Les Trems.

Ahh makes sense then. I want the short version but they don't have any instock unless its gold.

Look around for Göldo G5 too. Basically, Göldo is the parent company that builds those trems. They supply Duesenberg with those trems that have the right branding, and some minor styling elements. They also sell Göldo ones that are unbranded, and may not have some of the art deco styling. I think the trem arm tips are just plain cylindrical things, without the "steps" that make them look art deco-ish. No "D" of Duesenberg either. Other than that, they're identical. I think I have seen them on Ebay too.

Ah so would your mate/bandmate be Mike Cheer then? He sounds like someone I could enjoy a beer with, perhaps a can of Gunpowder Bock, and waffle on about brewing and metal, two of my favourite subjects!

I was actually reading about that beer today, I'm a Beer Jerk customer and got an email about it, already thought it was cool.

Now it's extra cool!
The older I get, the more disappointed in myself I become.
