GENERAL DISCUSSION / Re: pickup height
« Last post by sybersitizen on October 20, 2017, 01:00:43 PM »
Depending on what pickups you have, you can refer to this from the user manual:

DIMARZIO PICKUPS

Each DiMarzio humbucking pickup is secured to the body by two hex-head screws. On the coil, closer to the bridge, the mounting screw is the screw under the B string. On the coil, closer to the neck, the mounting screw is the screw under the A string. Turn the screws clockwise to tighten and counterclockwise to loosen.

To adjust pickup height, unscrew both pickup mounting screws. Raise or lower your pickup to the desired position with your fingers. Retighten both pickup mounting screws flush with top of pickup. Do not over tighten.

SEYMOUR DUNCAN PICKUPS

Each Seymour Duncan pickup is secured to the body by two slotted screws. These mounting screws are located under the E strings on the outside coils. Turn the screws clockwise to tighten and counterclockwise to loosen. To adjust pickup height, unscrew both pickup mounting screws. Raise or lower your pickup to the desired position with your fingers. Retighten both pickup mounting screws flush with top of pickup. Do not over tighten pickup mounting screws flush with top of pickup.

Sooo, can please some give me some instructions on how to deal with this. I know my share of basic set up, have a house and so on, but for this, it's going to the luthier! I just need frets.

Make sure your luthier knows about these videos:

NITEFLY GUITARS / Re: fret wire - USA Nitefly

I don't mind replacing them all, size is not an issue for me (jumbo or medium): will they fit (same "threads" on neck)?

One more thing: anyone tried improvising: normal frets, cutting the lower thingie off, lowering them, just gluing them on? I don't care about the details, just that it plays.

That fretwork is the “real deal”, but i think it’s for flies, not niteflies. As far as I know all niteflies (certainly my few), and the later flies (no idea from when but at some point after my 2004, and before my 2014), use more jumbo fret wire.

Let me know if you find any!

NITEFLY GUITARS / fret wire - USA Nitefly
« Last post by ferenc on October 20, 2017, 06:06:53 AM »
Hi all,

i decided to start a new topic, not continue the old one. I am a long time pleyer, have had and still own my share of guitars (currently a G SG, F Usa standard strat, Yamaha ls6).

And now I took a USA Nitefly (SSH, two tone burst) off someone for dirt cheap. Always loved Parkers, now I have it!

One problem. Two frets missing. Glue came off, frets nowhere to be found. What I need is

a) two blank frets (new, used?)
b) advice if the ebay fretwire someone is selling is the real-deal SS

Sooo, can please some give me some instructions on how to deal with this. I know my share of basic set up, have a house and so on, but for this, it's going to the luthier! I just need frets.

(I am in Europe, Slovenia).

Best,

Blaž
