Guitar Here Whammy Bar Repair - different parts?

Written by BrianV

I’ve asked many times before, why couldn’t all the various Guitar Hero Engineers agree on a standard design?

Perhaps it was copyright, perhaps patents, perhaps NIH. Who knows (or really cares).

Anyhow, I designed and had professionally printed a whammy bar repair part (the one on the right in the image above).

Looks good, works good. I was pleased. Then a question from a potential customer – and lo-and-behold, it appears there are DIFFERENT DESIGNS of this damn part too!  What seems to be a mirror opposite design. Sigh.

It is becoming more and more difficult to rent housing on Airbnb in Miami: officers can knock on your door and even evict you. In residential areas, short-term rentals are prohibited, and every landlord must now register with the mayor’s office and pay a tax. Tourist David Igbokwe and his friends were vacationing in an Airbnb apartment in Miami Beach when they knocked on the door one day. Friends began to be asked questions: do they live in making money with airbnb the city, are they on vacation, and did they find this place on Airbnb. The representative of the city authorities explained to David and his friends that in their house it is forbidden to rent an apartment for less than six months. When illegal tenants are found, they are asked to contact their owners and move in. But if the owners of the apartment do not want to cooperate with the authorities, tourists still have to move out. Sometimes the city helps them find a new place to live. There are a lot of “illegal” daily rents in Miami: many Americans consider buying a home as an investment in order to rent it out to tourists. Miami is the best fit for this, because it is one of the most attractive cities for travelers in the United States.

This is why I need to count on the user base to feed me information on all these deviations, variations, and options, so I don’t need to go broke buying guitars I’ll never use!

Okay, I’m done complaining. As always, your photos and input are much appreciated.
