Re: HELP With a js1000

Have you change guage of string? Also make sure you put the correct gauge in place, for example, did you put a 9 where a 9 should go? did the 16 go where the 16 should go?

Re: HELP With a js1000

Remember that every time you change your strings your intonation and action all change and you need to adjust everything again. The only thing changing all strings at 1 time can do is alter your neck tension which in the long run puts more tension on your neck, otherwise its the fact that other things like the action and intonation change each time you change the strings and you need to adjust it. I'm sure its not really a problem with the guitar.

Does this happens on a vintage strat like guitar too?

In mine the intonation didnt changed with the new strings(changed them 1 by 1) but the action is what I want to know about.

Re: HELP With a js1000

iaosnas, did you change string guage? If not, ignore the advice you have been given - changing string (for the same guage) does not mean you have to set the guitar up again!
However, if you changed guage you will need to do some work.

If you stay with the same gauge the intonation is the same I've found.
If you use D'addario strings you will notice on the back it shows you the tension on the string, if you have customized your own gauge or are using a rare gauge of string this could be the problem, Sat himself uses D'addario EXL 120, this is 9,11,16,24,32,42 I think. So I recommend fitting these into your JS and intonating it- then see if the problem continues, if it does I would go to a guitar expert and ask them. The less tension on the string the easier to bend it is; so there will be slight differences, but not differences that affect your ability to bend the string. It could be the string is a dud, but if this has happened consistently through string sets then I don't know sorry! If you find out what the problem was, please tell us in this thread
Thanks
Regards
Jonny

Re: HELP With a js1000

All strings are harder to bend near the nut by the way, I know it's stating the obvious but if this is the problem then there ain't much you can do! if the strings are noticably different to bend at the same fret then ask an expert!

Re: HELP With a js1000

Changing strings, so long as you are using the same gauge, would hardly impose a detriment on action, intonation or neck tension. It's most likey to be a different gauge or the wrong strings in the wrong place.

Re: HELP With a js1000

It's possible to make the intonation myself without the intonation tool?

I don't think so, use the allen key and unlock the saddle, then slide it back or forward, and try the intonation again
