    No idea. I don't have any to test, and I've already dismantled it. The shelves are roughly 30cm cubes. I thought LPs were slightly bigger?

    Have you tried turning off wifi on your phone to see if it's a network issue?

    This was from John Lewis and is a solid piece of furniture and is really heavy. It's about 10+ years old (and was ridiculously expensive in it's day) and has moved a number of times. There's a couple of shelf bracket holes a bit broken where the shelf clips go in. But this doesn't really affect it, the shelves are stable with just three clips. If needed they can be repaired ie glued in (if you don't want to move it again). There's also a few scratches and marks from moving, however these come out with a bit of furniture polish and aren't noticeable at all when there's stuff in it. Overall it's really nice, but time to move onto a new person.

    It's also Brompton friendly, and has housed ours for quite a few years, a couple of them fit perfectly on top. It's quite big and heavy and is dismantled, ready for collection from SW15, Putney.
    Price: £50

    I've just been playing some blues type licks with my low E string ringing through. And when I do a big bend, on for instance the B string 17th fret, the low E drops in pitch quite significantly. It's not something I've really noticed before, but it's a bit of a pain. The whole point of the low E ringing through is to provide some harmony, which it's not doing when going out of pitch. Any ideas on how to remedy this?

    I've a box of old cables, that I've never know what to do with. An abundance of firewire, network and various things I've no idea what they even are!

    How much did they cost new, if you can remember?

    I think they were about £35 a set. I've got two sets in the photos.

    @bq & @Sharkstar From all the info, it's looking more and more like I'm not going to attempt to make something. I think purchasing all the tools required just for this will end up being a lot more expensive than seeing if something else fits or something comes up in the future.

    @Tenderloin the dimensions are a bit odd as the shelving is Muji and follows their Japanese measurements which are: Width 26cm x depth 37cm x height 34.5 cm.

    They've also got few different configurations, a wide version, width 52cm x depth 37cm x height 34.5 cm and a few others. But, it's just a bit of a pain that they don't seem to be available in the UK or EU anymore.

    Ah, sorry. It looks like the one I have is FireWire 400 to 800?

    Thread dredge.

    Didn't know where to put this, but thought somebody might find it interesting? Perhaps the Frame Builders thread?
