I'm a big fella, so everyone who knows me was very surprised when I bought my EDA905F (It's so tiny!). As I got to know the instrument, and adapt my hands to its neck and fingerboard, though, I have enjoyed playing it. Not long ago, one of my tuning machines was damaged by something stupid I did. It still works fine, but one side of the slotted post is broken off, and it looks, well, bad. So... as I started searching for replacement tuning machines, imagine my surprise to find out that no one makes them in this particular finish (Pewter) anymore. I've also searched the forums here to some extent and found no one with an EDA with this finish. I'm beginning to suspect that it is a unique animal. Am I right in suspecting that the tuning machines are Gotoh G7, and that the upper machines are left-handed while the lowers are right-handed? The instrument is finished in a charcoal or gun-metal color, and all the hardware is this dark pewter color that's not quite black but not quite chrome either. If I get off my duff and get out my camera I suppose I could post a picture or two of the beastie. While I'm asking silly questions: has anyone had any luck with replacing the fingerboard on one of these necks? I'm given to understand that the board is some sort of synthetic material. Normally, a fingerboard is glued to the neck with hide glue, but I'd be willing to bet that Ibanez did something tricky here... I'm considering shaping out a piece of bubinga or wenge to make a new fingerboard, but I want to know what my chances are of getting the old one off without messing up the neck. Any insights here will be greatly appreciated.
