H, nice one.  Yes hopefully it's a replacement pot.  Did you get it under their warranty?

Maybe they're sending you a new Gibson.  :idea:

A new Gibson you say . . that would be a strange and wonderful thing to behold.

Changing the pot if it is a new plug-in one will only take couple of minutes, and warranty, not likely, I bought it in July 2014.  :legit:

Ooh, and I lied, it's not DHL, it's TNT.  :doh:

lol..  Yes wouldn't mind a Gibson myself either. 

So I'm guessing "Epiphone Limited Lifetime warranty" doesn't cover the bits that break, moving parts and all that.  http://www.epiphone.com/Products/Les-Paul/Prophecy-Les-Paul-Custom-Plus-GX.aspx

Interesting Mick - maybe that's what's happening, a warranty replacement. I hadn't even considered that possibility  ;)

Sounds like you might be in luck, H.  Be interesting to see what it actually is...

Well if that is what's happening, then fair play to Gibson.  ;)

The package arrived. Replacement pot inside.

Three quick bits of soldering later and the Prophesy is back to full operational status.

Three cheers for Gibson.  :tup:

Ah, well, you see, it's like this.

Schecter Bansee with Floyd Rose. B string clamp thread strips - what to do? Replacement genuine Floyd Rose €200 plus. I am not paying that. So eBay, Chinese 'genuine licenced' Floyd Rose kit, bridge, whammy bar, posts, nut, springs, the lot. £17. Worth a punt.

Arrived in less than 2 weeks. Not quite the same dimensions as the model of bridge fitted by Schecter, so carving chisels came out and small increase in the guitar void made. Whammy bar is a bizarre shape and angle so need a bit of persuasion in a vice to be useable. I used the original FR posts and nut, obviously - no need for major surgery.

Don't know why, but instead of 3 springs I had to fit all 5 to balance the string tension. Anyway, upshot is it holds tune now better than the OEM bridge and so I am quite pleased with myself. Oh, and the intonation is perfect, just copied the positions of the saddles from the Floyd Rose.  :tup:

Later - went back to three springs by adjusting the tension bar a bit. Much happier now, although I was pretty happy with it before.
