BMG Special conversion to Guild BHM1

Postby dadrockholiday » Mon Jun 19, 2017 10:51 am

Hi, and thanks from a new member. I am considering converting my one of my BMG Special guitars as close as possible to the appearance of a Guild BHM1. Struggling with pickups at the moment and wondered also if anyone knows if that trem system is still made? I know this may seem like a strange idea but I always wanted one as a kid and when I first saw Brian playing one (Golden Rose Montroeux festival '84) I wore out the video tape watching it! Any steers or help would be much appreciated! Thanks.

Where do you live? I think there is a guy that does that type of conversion. Think he is in Spain. I only do the orignal style like Brians.

My steer is just to convert it to look like the original guitar! Either way it will be a lot of work so you might as well do it properly. Cesar from Peru or Ron Smith's Cybershop will sell you the appropriate hardware. You will need a conversion style tremolo which is a vertical back plate rather than horizontal.
