I have a question about pull up and out of tune strings for Rich, so I thought I'd piggyback on this thread.
I have a new RG1570 with an Edge Pro on it and I seem to be having some issues with the strings going sharp (way more than 5 cents) after a decent pull up on the bar. I have new, fully stretched strings (.10s) and the guitar has been setup properly. My action is as low as possible, but not stupidly low and the trem at neutral is set pretty darn flat.
I am pretty much getting a sharp note out of all 6 strings after a pull up... not just one or two. I can easily get it back in tune after a quick dive. Diving in general causes no problems at all... goes back to pitch everytime no matter how retarted I get with it.
I followed Rich's advice on doing multiple pull ups/dives then retuning, etc. I can now pull up and dive 20 times (I quit after 20
) and after that last dive none of the strings are out of tune... but if I only pull up (just once, even) and don't dive they are all sharp. Does this make sense?
I have a Jackson SL3 Soloist I just bought with a ****ty Jackson lic. Floyd on it and it seems to do much better than my Edge Pro does on the Ibanez. There is something bad wrong here!
Crappy Floyds shouldn't be out performing Edge Pros.
I am replacing the Jackson's tremolo with a Floyd Pro, BTW.
Any advice? Is this just normal? Do I need to have the trem posts replaced with ones that have anchor studs? Am I a homosexual?
Thanks for any info!
I had the frets leveled, the neck edges beveled and the last four frets scalloped like a Jem. I put a green ToneZone in the bridge, and white Blue Velvet in the middle and a green Hum from Hell in the neck. With green knobs and switch tab from Rich (thanks again dude!), this baby looks ultra cool (body is nickel silver). This is the best sounding/playing guitar I have ever had!!!!!!!!!
