What should i consider to buy electric guitar for first time?
2 CHEAP guitars that are AWESOME with GREAT reviews (I have them both and have been playing for over 30 yrs) :
- Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar (average $199) Solid playing and sounding guitar.
- Epiphone Les Paul Special I P90 Electric Guitar ($129) This has P90s in it! They sound SO GOOD.
I would replace either of these ASAP if one broke.

How do i repair my B.C. Rich guitar??
Guitar manufacturers use generally one of two different knob types: (1) knob has a small set screw of some type holding it on or (2) press fit onto the shaft of the tuneing pot (volume knob in your case).
Now, the problem is if it is NOT a set screw type, it is press fit. You see press fit used most of the time on lower-end instruments (and a few high end). The BEST way to get a stuck volume know off is to get a shoe string, loop part of it under the knob, brace the guitar firmly and PULL SLOWLY WITH FORCE. Realize that it is possible to damage the guitar if you **** on the string too hard.
I have never seen where a stuck know did not come off (or hear of someone breaking their guitar doing it).
I have also resorted to using a small screwdriver: work it way under the know and gently twist it to loosen it so it can be pulled off with a string or your hands.
Be carefull not to scratch your guitar!

Electronic circuit diagram for a bass collection bass guitar Japanese 1988
I understand your pain - was googling for similar, and came across this post, 5 years prior. My SGC Nanyo Bass Collection has just started to play silly beggars with the pots, and a bridge fault. Nowhere online seemed to have any details of the wiring, as the problem is, as you say, the fact that all of the tone and volume pots are based on a printed circuit board. If theres a nick or short on the board, its a pig to replace, and I really wouldn't like to have to wire any pots onto it. I'm currently looking at the options of ripping out the old electrics and wiring it from scratch myself. If you're still after answers, good luck!
PS - noted that none of the previous replies are relevant to this - mostly going on about the amps or a Fender guitar??!

How does a fender ax-12 chromatic tuner work
I'm an engineer, not a musician. The device is a frequency meter set up to display the musical note input to it. If you pluck a C flat and it shows an A you need to tune your instrument till it shows a C flat. You will have to refer to the manual for operation and modes.

How open the metronom for
Almost all these plastic "wonders" have a set of screws... sometimes they are hidden under rubber feet OR under labels. When these are out, often there are little plastic protrusions that mate to depressions in the opposite site that have to be popped open. The key is to go slow and NOT to exert too much force. Sometimes they "hide" screws in the battery compartments as well. Often when you open these devices they go sproing and the little plastic buttons fall out of the front cover, so NOTE where they go. Rotating knobs often must be pulled off the shaft

DIGITECH DIGITAL CLAMP METER QM-1563
I am repairing a Digitech QM156 for a friend - someone has been
stuffing with the trimpots - so it's way out of calibration. RV9 on the current sensor board, corrects the zero (most systems have this as an external control. However the volts range etc is way out of whack. Does anyone know what each pot is supposed to do??
Don't want to junk a perfectly good instrument.

How do I register a company in the Marshall Islands?
The Marshall Islands has been considered as one of the economically and politically stable country which is prevalent for the splendid business environment
, favourable and low tax regime together with unlimited business opportunities.
If you want to register a company in the Marshall Islands, it requires a minimum of one Shareholder, one Director and one Secretary - they can be the same person. The director of that company can form any nationality as to the company choice. A standard formation is 500 registered and bearer shares without par value, or up to 50,000 USD worth of par value stock. The notable matter is that the Marshall Islands company formation is a very flexible, tax-free structure, with few restrictions on the business that the company can engage in.
