My New "Used" RG570

xxxx://s204.xxotobucket.xxx/albums/bb216/0_Xelax_0/?action=view&current=P41601554.jpx

Im a new poster and I can't post pictures just yet which is why I sneaked this link in. Just type http, ph, com, and at the last letter g just replace these x's with these.

Luckily UPS did not ruin my guitar, during the GROUND Shipping the box looked pretty much UNSCATHED with a few scratches here and there. Im also proud to say that this is my first guitar which I purchased for 250(+60 if you count shipping). The serial number is F906510 so I'ts an 89 I suppose? I also have no idea on how to tune these locking nuts, am I supposed to mess around with the edge knobs?

You loosen the locknut screws, tune guitar with the tuning pegs, tighten locknut screws(go snug, then a pinch more--don't need to crank down), then fine tune the bridge if needed.

If you have never dealt with a floating trem before, then I have one suggestion for you.

Read, read, and read. And once your done all that, read it again.
