Okay guys, so i went and tried out an RG321 today and ended up buying it under the excuse "I need a hardtail" (lame excuse i know... but enough to justify it for me haha
Just a few things i need advice on about this guitar though:
1. The guitar was setup with .9s on it but i use .10s. I'm going to change the strings to .10s but shall i mess around with the truss rod etc? I was thinking of putting the .10s on, leaving the guitar a couple of days, then adjusting action/truss rod etc. Can anyone give me tips on this as i have never touched a truss rod and i'm pretty scared to
2. The action on the guitar is quite high - though so was every other guitar at the shop (even a JEM7V had a massive action
). After i put the .10s on my guitar, how will i go about lowering the action. I know i'm meant to measure it and test at the 8th fret, but what's a good way of lowering the height? It's a hardtail so i want the action to be as low as possible
3. I'm probably going to end up putting a Dimarzio X2N in the bridge. Can anyone give me diagrams or such to show how to install it?
Cheers for any advice guys, i'll post up pictures some time in the future when it's modded up a bit
