A closeup of the texturing on the nut. I guess done to match the texture of the finish. A nice touch.



Very much enjoying this guitar.

2000 Stealth Hardtail. Basswood body and neck. Jumbo (Nitefly size) frets. "Stealth" finish (textured grey with black speckles. Actually a little glossier than I thought it would be. I was expecting it to be completely matte). Sperzel D-thing (broken on this one; I need to replace it, but it's not a priority since I don't really do drop tunings very often).

Is this something that you could get custom made now?  Might have to go on my list of GAS symptoms.

Sorry to hi-jack an old thread but I thought you may be able to help.

I too have a hardtail and it too came with a broken D-Thing. I'm currently in the US for a few months and rang to order a D-Thing, but sperzel told me it could be one of two string post sizes. Did you ever order one and would you know which size it is? They said they'd replace it if it was wrong, but not much help when I try put it on the guitar in the UK, wish they'd have told me that in the emails before I left.

Thanks for any advice.

Thanks for the response. I'm not 100% what you mean by button. Do you mean from the park that touches the back of the headstock to the tip of the string post, or from the locking wheel on the back? Or the actually tuning button which would be halfway-ish between the two?

Thanks.

yes, very slim and light guitar. Any demo of the sound test? :)

I did eventually pick up a replacement D-thing on eBay, but I was unaware of the different post sizes and ended up with one that was too big. Ie, the post stuck way up and made it so there was no break angle from the nut. It looked strange and didn't hold tuning very well, so I took it off and put the original broken one back on. I haven't bothered tracking down another one since then. So if Sperzel says that there are two different post sizes available, I'd bet that you want the shorter of the two.
