Hee hee hee.....

As a matter of interest, how many clamps do you reckon you've got left?? Has there been any contact with David since the transfer of pieces?

Well at a rough guess I'd say there are about 20-30 sets left, they're down in the shed right now and the rain is horizontal so I'm buggered if I'm going down there tonight to count 'em!

No contact with david since I bought his Quantum bass, I never got his phone number or email and have left a few messages through here but no reply, plus I think his user account has gone "guest" on us, shame really as he has a Hondo electric 12 string he half promised me for sale, hey ho.

This one is for Sgt. Vimes, or anyone else out there. I appreciate that this thread is two years old, but do you still have sets of replacement shims and clamps and perhaps even the little allen bolts?
I have a lovely used Spectrum DX and they are all missing.

Thank you heaps!!!
It'll be great to see her back in one piece!
I've PM'd you.  Smile

I'll work out something for the shims.
Are they basically just washers?

If you can get hold of some 1mm sheet steel and some tin snips it shouldn't be too hard to fashion the shims, you can use 2 sets of the clamps but not ideal as the bottom set can lift the strings out of the nut.

Some folk here use that metal crate strapping stuff, easily found round the back of a Halfords or any trading estate.

Yep; just drill the holes before you cut the steel. I use a Dremel cutting disk and then smooth with a file these days...
Not too sure that 2 sets of clamp plates would be particularly good news on a Deluxe, though!!

That would be me, and the stuff I use came from a woollen mill where they triple dump the wool bales, hence the strapping is a particularly useful blend of hard yet pliable steel that lends itself to just this purpose.
