Can I hire one of you guys to route a trem for me?

Post by Mechanical Birds » Mon Oct 26, 2020 1:13 pm

I have this Peavey T60 that I’ll probably keep forever. I have a hard time with not having a tremolo though, like it makes me feel naked. They’re notoriously heavy and I’ve never been able to find one with an offset vibrato and would like to change that. I don’t have the tools to do it, let alone the skill, so I’m wondering if I could pay somebody here to do it for me :)

In my head I have this master plan of one day routing out the top to match the bottom so I can mirror the pick guard to be the same on both sides and maybe, just maybe, put a fuzz in it or something. Think that Bilt prototype Tele thing that I think they made for the Imagine Dragons guy before they really got started with the Relevator and stuff.

But for now I’m content to just get the trem and necessary bridge installed. Would anybody be willing to help me out with this? Let’s make a dream come true <3

Whereabouts are you located? If it's the UK I'd do it for you for the shipping cost but if it's international then probably not the best person for the job

I’m located in West Virginia, obviously willing to ship both ways but the UK might be a bit steep for me :/

Can’t tell if Andy is serious, but if so I’d send it to you

I'm in Australia; you could probably buy a brand new high quality router and bits for less than what it'd cost for shipping here and back.
