Dead Notes After String Change. How?
 
Hi Folks,

I changed the strings on my RG320FM last month, which caused some major issues for me. I wrote the following thread about it (you may remember it):

I haven't really played that guitar since that time; I've been playing a fixed-bridge guitar for certain songs that I've been working through. Anyways, I plugged in the RG tonight, and during the first solo I played on it, I noticed that the D note (22nd fret on the high E string) died on me. No sustain, no tone whatsoever, just a little click coming through the amp that faintly resembles a D note. I checked all of the other frets near this note (eg. 17 to 24 on strings), and they sound perfect.

Is this the result of the string change? Or is this a new unrelated problem?


Thanks in advance.

Give the bridge about a quarter to half turn raise..

Those korean necks bow at the neck joint really badly so they angle them backwards slightly but this make a low spot in the fretboard, you need to raise the trem slightly until it goes away.
