Hi Stealthy,
I know... a year does seem unbearable at times, but for me it gave me time to save up the final balance. Pictures throughout the build would be nice, although I don't think ESP or Jackson offer this service either , especially considering their prices.

Hi Styx,
Thanks for the compliment. The tuners are LSR Precision Tuners, they are self locking with a 40:1 gear ratio. They were made by a company called Intertune, last I heard they were looking for a new manfacturer in China, however the website link is no longer. They are available in the UK from Bailey Guitars (link below), and possibly www.edroman.com in the USA.

Exclamation

I hate to be a down-er here but Ed Roman truly is known as the biggest rip-off artist in the guitar making industry, I wouldn't trust them in any circumstances...

Dude! I love LSR tuners. I used to have a set on my old Jackson. I would have them on all my guitars if they were not so difficult to find and so expensive. Last time I seen them new for sale in the US they were $180 a set!

And yes, as for Mr Ed Roman... Beware.

Nice axe btw.

Anyway, what's up with this Ed Roman-character? I'm intrigued.

I was wondering the same thing: when i registered to this forum, there was lots of
interesting things each week, but now it seems that the "RAN madness" has
come to an end. Why? For sure because of the prices increase and maybe also
because everything was said about RAN ?!?!

Nevertheless, new models in the gallery.

At last, more IRONBIRD RANs !
