    Hellparts Switch Washer

    Mine arrived yesterday. Very easy to install. No glue involved at all. It was just a matter of unscrewing the knurled nut and popping on the washer and putting the nut back on. I did tie a bit of string around the switch as a precautionary measure though.

    Thanks very much. They are. I contemplated selling the black one but I knew deep down I'd regret it.

    I've been using the Thomastik Infled Jazz Swing 12's (I usually use 11's regardless of string manufacturer) and they DO bend decently and stay in tune much more so than the Chromes. My new go-to strings from now on. Thanks again for steering me towards them.

    Thanks for the tip. I've been reading up on em and I'll buy a set. I already have some Chromes ready to go so it's a win/win.

    Hellparts Switch Washer

    Hi lads. Is it handy enough to install these? As in, do you just unscrew the stock one and screw on the replacement? Or is it a right pain in the rear ? I have a Rat Rod by the way. https://www.hellparts.com/switch-washers.html

    Thank you. I've spent more time looking at it than actually playing it hahaha. I'll stick up a picture of the truss rod cover when it gets here.

    Thanks lads. Here it is side by side with my old G5125 Electromatic which I'll wall mount horizontally in the man cave. The cream piping around the headstock and f holes was done with a paint marker and a steady hand. As for the Rat Rod...I'll swap out the strings for D'Addario Flatwound...

    Howaya JC. Thanks for the welcome. It's a right pain in the arse waiting for it. I've never tracked anything as much only to come over with a big sense of gloom very time hahaha.

    Electromatic G5125/Rat Rod G5410T TRC

    Hi lads. I own a G5125 for which I bought a custom truss rod cover (I name my guitars). So I have a Rat Rod G5410T coming from Germany and have a custom truss rod cover for that in my basket ready to go. The guitar is slow about getting here and I'm getting impatient and want to buy that truss...
