EDG Guitars releases their new tuner which can go from a 41:1 gear ration up to a 100:1 gear ratio.

Miami, FL (June 14, 2013) -- EDG Guitars will unveil its new guitar tuner at the Summer NAMM 2013, booth #1667. According to the company this new device overcomes the limitations inherent to the traditional gear-and-worm tuners currently in use. Called the Toroidal Tuner, it offers features never before available in a single device, like letting the user bypass the gears by winding the string directly using an Allen wrench, a screwdriver, or even a penny, making string replacement a breeze. String lock is optional.

The high gear ratio (41:1 standard, up to 100:1 possible) makes it so smooth that the knob can be turned with one finger. Additionally, backlash is eliminated. The end result is a much quicker, precise and stable tuning. Based on a modified gear-and-worm drive, it presents the advantages of a linear (nut-and-screw) tuner while keeping the format, flexibility and unlimited range of a traditional machine head. It is the result of several years of research and development at EDG Guitars.

We're getting close to the end of our journey. We've aged most of the metal parts on our project guitar, so now let's take care of the output jack, knobs, back plate, and pickguard.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month, we'll continue with the aging process of our Harley Benton DC-Junior project guitar (which is a copy of a 1958 Les Paul Junior Double Cut), taking a closer look at the pickguard while aging the rest of the hardware discussed in the last part of this series ["DIY Relic'ing: Harley Benton DC-Junior Electronics"]. If you need a refresher on our aging process for hardware, refer back to "DIY Relic'ing: Break the Shine" for guidance. You can see the parts we'll be discussing today in their "finished" form, aka relic'd, in Photo 1.
