    When you guys put new strings on your guitars do you take all the strings off then put new on or change them one at a time. The reason i ask is that i want to give my fret board a clean the next time i replace my strings and was worrying it might do damage to the neck with all the stings off the...

    The previous owner of my UV7BK had 10's, and the action was pretty high, he used 4 springs. Now I'm making the setup with 9's, and I can't low the action as much as I want. I guess the bridge is too raised, but I'm not sure. I tried all the spring configs, with 3 and 4 springs, and the best was...

    Can I add a 4th spring to the back of my trem? There's a bar taking up 2 of the holes in there and those holes are threaded and kinda big. It doesn't look like they will hold a spring too well.

    Hi, I received my second guitar this week since the old one was a second hand strat copy, I thought it was time for a step up. When I first got it I was tuning it at the head stock and snapped the top string(I was slightly embaressed when he asked me if I knew you dont tune it there), there...

    Here is my story. I recently acquired a 07 RG2570E VGD Prestige. I researched and researched, and tried out several Ibanez, Jackson, ESP guitars and decided this green monster was for me. I had the shop order one untouched, because most of the floor guitars there are poorly treated. Well it...

    I usually play 09-42 gauge GHS, but I want to order some LTHB Ernie Ball 10-13-17-30-42-52 packs so I can detune my RG560 to either C or C# standard. I have a couple questions: 1) Will the unbalanced string tension warp my thin (original) Wizard neck? 2) With this gauge, what's an ideal...

    Hey everybody, I'm only 17 and I just got my first guitar with a locking trem. Its an RG 2570 and it rocks. I tried going with the stock super slinky strings (9 - 42) but I was breaking a string every other day. Now I'm using regular slinky (10-46) and I have it down so that I'm only a breaking...

    hi, for some reason my tremolo arm always hits the tip of the 5 way switch, this is an edge tremolo, i have it set up correctly (I think), when i lower the action is when the arm hits the tip of the switch on position 3 all the time and sometimes on the in between spots. I cant seem to fix this...

    I know maybe this question was answered in other threads but my quick search didnt do any good so I'll tell you the problem When I dive with my new Jem77VBK the G string goes flat most of the times ... making all other strings sharp a bit. I have changed the strings on it ( yes I stretch them...

    Ive had my JS1000BP for a little over a year, and its been giving me trouble from the start. I switched from 9s to 10s, and that helped it stay in tune a little bit, and I changed from 3 springs to 4, and that helped a little too, but its not enough. No matter what brand of strings I use, how...

    Hey i've just bought Rg370dx and is a very good guitar.I've trouble setting up the bridge angle.The construction of the bridge is in a such a shape that i cannot figure out whether it is parallel to the body or not. Another thing if i do a dive bomb the guitar comes in perfect tune but if i...

    Ok guys. I need some of your expertise now! I've owned this jem7bsb for some time and I haven't played it for a couple of years. Now I want to set it up and start using it again and I'm having problems with the setup. To start with, the tremolo angle is nothing close to neutral, it is...
