    New Epiphone Day

    Interesting,capnhiho! I will keep that thought in mind for the future as I have longed for a Joe Pass Emperor for quite some time ! As for this guitar, I just found a set of used Gibson 490’s (490R and 490t) at a good price so I will be giving them a whirl :)

    Replacement Tuners for 5420

    Hi dswo, I used them although they did not drop right in. I had to ream the hole for the bushing ever so slightly. Also had to drill new holes for the mounting screws. Neither was a big deal. The tips of the mounting plates covered the old screw holes. Just barely but they covered. Love them.

    New Epiphone Day

    My name is Larry and I now own an Epiphone Es-335. I am no longer a guitar snob!! Lol I see posts here were they are looked down upon but, i don't care what it says on the headstock. It plays well and sounds nice. Good bones if I decide to make some up grades in the future.

    5420 Upgrades Finished At Last

    I like this combination a lot. I am mainly a fingerpicker and this gives me good note separation and volume with out getting muddy.

    The Bigsby is the stock one it came with. I just changed out the arm. Works fine.

    Replacement Tuners for 5420

    Sorry All, should have realized it had probably been discussed to death but could not find a definitive answer using the search feature. Ordered a set anyway. I’ll crawl back under my rock now 😊

    Replacement Tuners for 5420

    Anyone ever use the Grover Sta- Tite V97-18GA to replace the stock tuners on a 5420? Look like they would fit.

    Yamaha buys Guild

    One of my favorites. My 07 AEX 1500 designed by Martin Taylor. Bought it on a whim. Glad I did!

    Rocking Bar Bridge for G5420

    Actually, I put a very small piece of double sided tape under the feet of the base once I had placement zeroed in… so I guess its not floating :) but, the rocking bar works well enough for me. …. Full discloser; I am not as much of a player as I am a play at it. So YMMV :)

    Rocking Bar Bridge for G5420

    Thats what I did. Works fine. A certain “ Mr. Atkins” seemed to do ok with one. ;)
