Suhr Guitar Talk :: Wilkinson WVS1302P replacement arm (the locking saddle one!)

Author: Random Hero Subject: Wilkinson WVS1302P replacement arm (the locking saddle one!) Posted: Mon Oct 18, 2021 2:55 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 0 I have a Suhr Pete Thorn with the Wilkinson trem with locking saddles and in tightening the nut in the back of the tremolo, I somehow managed to snap the screw - half of which is now stuck in the end of the arm.

Finneas Is Better Behind The Scenes

Finneas Baird O’Connell has been involved in some of the best, most influential pop music of the past few years. As the co-writer, producer, and font of encouragement for his younger sister Billie Eilish, Finneas — he is a mononym kind of guy — played a central role in sculpting the sound of mainstream pop today. At age 24, he’s won more Grammys than he can probably carry at one time. (I have no idea how heavy and unwieldy those gramophone statues are, but toting eight of them around seems like ...

Watch Charly Bliss Debut A New Song In Brooklyn

Last night in Brooklyn, the magnificently poppy NYC indie rock band Charly Bliss played their first show in two years, opening for Japanese Breakfast at Brooklyn Steel. The band used the occasion to debut a new song, which is listed as “UDK” at and on YouTube. Speaking of which, the song is on YouTube! It finds the group leaning perhaps even further into the pop realm than they did on their 2019 sophomore effort Young Enough, with Eva Hendricks ditching her guitar and switching into f...

Kanye West Legally Changes Name To Ye

Kanye West is now officially Ye. As TMZ reports, a judge has approved his petition to change his legal name to simply Ye — no middle name, no last name. He filed the paperwork with the courts back in August. Previously, Ye was known as Kanye Omari West. Now, I guess, it is just Ye.

Bright Sheng And Campus Culture Run Amok? Or…

To some observers, it’s a case of campus “cancel culture” run amok. To others, the incident is symbolic of an arrogant academic and artistic old guard and of the deeply embedded anti-Black racism in classical music. – The New York Times

Jack White – “Taking Me Back”

Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming Turns 10

Anthony Gonzalez could go no bigger. At least, so it seemed after 2008’s Saturdays=Youth. Departing from the ambient soundscapes and instrumentals of earlier M83 releases, Saturdays=Youth was a breakthrough for the project, introducing a whole lot more people to M83. It featured songs that were lush and gloriously over the top in their ’80s-isms and teenage visions. There were songs that walloped you over the head with great waves of yearning, and there were songs that drifted off into spacious,...

West Side Story at 60: the dazzlingly modern musical that’ll be hard to beat

With Steven Spielberg’s remake almost out, the 1961 original still feels thrillingly contemporary, a tough act to followIt’s the opening credits that do it right away. Following three eerie whistles over a black screen, West Side Story explodes into a full screen of poster-paint colour – shifting from orange to red to magenta to royal blue – as Leonard Bernstein’s four-minute overture brassily clatters into action. Over the colour, a stark design flourish: seemingly random brigades of parallel v...

Warum ich jetzt meine Ziele entsprechend den Mondzyklen setze

Meine Mutter sagte mir schon sehr früh, dass alles zur richtigen Zeit passiert und ich die Kontrolle loslassen und stattdessen darauf vertrauen soll. Da sie mit einer Tochter gesegnet ist, die sehr ehrgeizig ist und eine unendliche Leidenschaft für das Setzen von Zielen, To-do-Listen und das Abhaken von Aufgaben hat, muss sie damals geahnt haben, dass uns eine unterhaltsame Reise bevorstand. Was sie aber nicht hätte kommen sehen, waren die letzten zwei Jahre. Zu versuchen, eine globale Pandemie ...

John Lennon Finally Meets & Jams with His Hero, Chuck Berry (1972)

“If you had tried to give rock and roll another name, you would call it Chuck Berry,” says John Lennon by way of introduction to his hero in the clip above from The Mike Douglas Show. The two perform Berry’s “Memphis, Tennessee” and “Johnny B. Goode” (with Lennon’s backing band, Elephant’s Memory, and unwelcome discordant backing vocals from Yoko). The moment was a major highlight of Lennon’s post-Beatles’ career. The year was 1972, and Lennon and Yoko Ono had taken over Douglas’ show fo...

Krautrock legends Faust: ‘We were naked and stoned a lot – and we ate dog food’

They blagged a fortune off their label after promising to be ‘the German Beatles’ – then went wild in the countryside making experimental krautrock. But was there more to Faust than pneumatic drills and nude donkey rides?Jean-Hervé Peron, former bassist and vocalist with Faust, would like to get something straight about his old band – specifically, the period in the early 1970s when they were living in a commune in Wümme, a rural area outside Hamburg. Faust’s time in Wümme is one of the great sa...
