    Install Piezos in ML3 Bea?

    Just out of curiosity, when you decked your bridge, did you have an issue with rattly/buzzy strings? Specifically on the low E string ? I’m having that issue. It’s not coming through on the amp, but it’s quite buzzy acoustically.

    ML3 Bea Neck pickup

    I'm actually a fan of the Henchman pickups. I watched so many demos online of Bea promoting his guitars, and the pickups sold me. I'm keeping mine stock. Similarly, I had an ML1-Pro Modern, and I swapped to some Duncans, and ended up putting the Sonorous pickups back in, and I preferred...

    ML3 Bea Neck pickup

    UPDATE: I just measured. Mine is 53mm. I believe that would be the wide spacing. (Or Trembucker if you went Duncan/F spaced with Dimarzio)

    ML3 Bea Neck pickup

    I think the ML1-Bea had a Floyd (correct me if I’m wrong). I have the ML3-Bea and it’s a Wilkinson wave 2-point trem. Measure from the centre of the high E to the low E string (above the bridge pickup). If it is around 53-54 mm, it’s the wide spacing. If it is 50mm or a bit less, it’s the...

    Modding my ML1 Modern Pro

    Would be pretty simple. Get a 3-way blade selector to fit that same space, and when you wore the pickups, follow a simple 2 Humbucker with 3-way switch and 1 vol 1 tone diagram like you can find on the Seymour Duncan website. You’ll likely Solder together the North finish and South finish...

    Affordable Bea models on the horizon

    That nickel cover actually looks great with that finish.

    ML1 Pro Experience

    The trick with truss rods is to adjust slow and no more than quarter turn at a time. Don’t force anything.

    Modding my ML1 Modern Pro

    I swapped my ML1-Pro modern pups for some Duncans and ended up going back to the Chapmans. But I can confirm the trembucker spacing was needed for the bridge pickup. If you measure from E to E over the pickup it will be around 53 mm which is wide spacing ( or trembucker)

    ML1-Pro Modern - neck profile /feel?

    I had an ML1-Pro Modern. And I have an LTD ec-1000. The ML1 Neck is a little bit chunkier than the eclipse and I think had a bit wider feel (wider string spacing). But it’s similar to the shape. I found the ML1 to be a great shape and size. Not a fat neck but like others said, not flat and...

    Help finding Saddle length screws for Chapman

    Missing screw. I tested one of the other screws in the saddle to make sure it wasn’t worn out. Thanks for the link

    Help finding Saddle length screws for Chapman

    Thanks. I sent an email. Waiting for a reply. I couldn't find any info on their website though, as any of the links I tried went to a page in another language with an error. :facepalm: I was on the official GOTOH website.

    Help finding Saddle length screws for Chapman

    Hi all, does anybody know what screws the ML3-Bea uses for saddle intonation length? This is for the Wilkinson WVP wave 2.0 tremolo. I need a replacement and it is very difficult to find this info. Is the screw Metric? Imperial? Thanks for any help.

    Supplies drying up in Canada

    Ok. I have the new Bea sig now. I’m really liking the Henchman pickups. Padauk necks are both fantastic too.

    ML-1 Pro Modern - Loose Volume Poti

    I was going to suggest the contact cleaner spray. I would suggest replacing the pot. Just make sure to get the correct size, rating (500k), taper type, shaft length and style (probably split shaft). This is also a good opportunity if you want to do an upgrade, and get a high-end pot if you...

    ML3 semi hollow pre-order in Canada

    As far as I can tell. Semi hollow is about $160 more than ML3 Pro. That roasted maple neck just looks great. Just the name “roasted maple” sounds tasty. (it’s a Canadian thing...)
