Re: Ibanez Rg350ex Tuning Problem Plz help

I'm guessing this is your first guitar with a floating bridge. Well, the first thing that you need to do is to STRETCH THE STRINGS. I found that even the stock strings needed quite a bit of stretching before they would stay in tune properly. After that, check the angle of your trem and make sure that the knife edges are parallel with the body and the neck. If they aren't, then adjust the spring tension from the back and then retune the guitar until it's set up properly.

After that, make sure that you have all the fine tuners set about half way between being able to be screwed in and screwed out so that you can fine tune the guitar once you lock the neck down. Then you just fine tune back and forth on the strings until all of them are tuned properly. After you've changed strings on the guitar several times, you'll get used to doing this and will even learn what to tune the strings to so that when you tune the other strings, the strings that you previously tuned go to where you actually want them to be.

For a more in-depth explanation, check out Rich's tech section on floating trems.

Re: Ibanez Rg350ex Tuning Problem Plz help

As far as solid state goes, I only use Line 6 amps because they are great bang for your buck amplifiers. If I had the money for a new tube amp, then I'd probably check out the B-52 AT-100 Tri-Mode Rectifier because they're pretty affordable to be tube amps and the one I played in Guitar Center gave me goosebumps for days.

Talking Re: Ibanez Rg350ex Tuning Problem Plz help

Im going to A couple of guitar Shops soon and Im gonna test Out Peavey and Behringer and Compare the Two, The Amplifiers ill be looking at are the Peavey Bandit 112 and the behringer Gmx212. Ive used the Behringer and its a great sounding amp. The thing is i wanna know what tube amps are, i dont understand much about amps lol. ive been using my crappy ashton for 4 years lol. If i like The behringer better i can have a big save on it lol. In shops it retails for $600 australian.

Re: Ibanez Rg350ex Tuning Problem Plz help

From Guitar101.com......

The “tube amp” is the original guitar amplifier. It gets its name from the fact that it is run by power tubes, vacuum-sealed glass bubbles with all kinds of electronic gadgetry nestled inside. There are different kinds of tubes that can be used, and there are slight differences in the sounds of the different kinds of tubes. There are even slight differences between the sounds produced by individual tubes of the exact same make and model because of the sensitivity of its inner workings, but all of these differences are subtle and can be hard to even detect at times.

The difference between a tube amp and a solid state amp, though, is fairly large. For a simple example, imagine the difference between a record player and a CD player. A tube amp is like a record player. There are subtle flaws in the sound, but the flaws generally tend to add warmth and depth to the overall tone. And if you crank the volume, the sound generally starts to clip or produce a distortion that also adds warmth and depth to the tone.

At least that is how a proponent of the tube amp would describe it to you. A critic would say that a tube amp is unreliable. The tone could be different on any given day, depending on things like the weather and the amount of fluorescent lights in the immediate vicinity. He would also say that if you ever blew out a tube (which will happen from time to time) you would never be able to count on recovering the same tone that you had before with the replacement tube.

Re: Ibanez Rg350ex Tuning Problem Plz help

Where in Australia are you iIbanezZ? I'd also recommend looking at the kustom solid state combo series. I have a KGA65 and it's a great amp for practicing by yourself, jamming with a band and gigs. Great on the wallet too.
