    Thank you.
    I do remember the story about the reluctance to use the term "Cake Knife", now, but I saw it so early in my time here it's kinda stuck in my memory.
    That last post oughta be a sticky or maybe in the FAQ section.

    Clearly you have not seen innovative uses of a dropped D tuner :-)

    Thanks for the reminder and definitions. I never really grasped that there were three variations so I was thinking that the "foot" and "cake knife" were the same and called "foot" and the "offset" was the "cake knife". Fixed that.

    While I suffer from Khaler Envy is it possible that I have the only Pilot with a dropped D tuner on LTG? ;-)

    No sorry, I think I have one or two!

    By the way, if you do big divebombs with the Khaler, because there's no locking nut or locking tuners, it knocks the bass way out of tune!
