Tuning

Hey guys can a guitar neck or the whole guitar actually get messed up if you play untuned for awhile. Specifically speaking floating trem guitars.

Re: Tuning

Theoretically, Yes. But I've never seen one get messed up enough to make it useless......

It would usually just require a good setup, and maybe a new trem depending on the type and if any damage was caused to it.

Re: Tuning

UNtuned or DEtuned? because if your detuned (in tune but its a lower tuning), you just need to loosen the truss rod a bit and MAYBE shim the neck but youll be fine after that. however. if your UNtuned (strings just randomly loosend until they just flop around like mad), well, i cant really help because the strings could be a bit too loose or they could be super flubby and magnetically sticking to the pickups haha (if their THAT bad, just take 2 min to add some tension)

Re: Tuning

the guitar is untuned as in its not in a specific tuning just a random tuning as if you guitar went out of tune, I haven't set up since the day I got it because i was planning on getting a jem haha. Its an rg2550e but it doesn't even matter anymore i just recently bought a jem 77vbk and i'm parting with this guitar. Its relatively new 3 months exact in absolute mint condition. I didn't even use the whammy on it for fear of the guitar messing up when dive bombing on an untuned guitar. How much do you guys think I can sell it for.

Re: Tuning

I tried selling it for that much on craigslist and it wouldn't sell I even lowered it to 600 and still wouldn't sell I am playing on selling it for 500 on craigslist when my jem arrives. I would sell on here but I just dont want the hassle of going through the shipping process and worry about the possibility of being scammed. I want to go the cold hard cash way
