So i made the plunge and sold my Strat to help get JEM. So far im loving it, its a really nice guitar, and pretty well made. Ill probably get another strat in the future, maybe and Eric Clapton sig or something.
This is my first floyd rose actually so I was having problems keeping the trem in tune. I think i got it stable but im not 100% sure, ill have to check it out more tomorrow. How crazy can i go on the trem? Like bar to the body insane? Just wanna get an idea of what to expect from the Floyd Rose.
The neck was a little misaligned but I just loosed the screws and firmly pressed the neck in the proper direction and retightend like i always do and it worked well.
The 9's and the trem seem a little loose to me and may go to 10's. I kinda get tangled up in the 9's when playing fast, and that doesn't happen on my prs and les paul with 10's. Also i dont have much playing experience on a 24 fret guitar so i think im picking further from the bridge where the tension is a little looser. Ill have to just adjust my technique and pick closer to the bridge.
Very fun to play though, and i like the evo's. I screwed down the single coil pickup because it was in my way and i wont use it much on this guitar. It feels cool to play Vai songs on it, and its real fun. All i need now is to make some nice expressive faces while playing
I set the guitar up with like .5mm relief and action at 2mm on the base side and 1.8 on the treble, measured at the 24th fret. What do you guys like it at just curiously?
