    Hi Everyone, My UV is a little under the weather... See the neck pickup? I can't raise it on the right side. Seems to be stripped enough so after a few turns of the height adjustment screw the spring pushes it back to the bottom. So what do I do now?

    Hello, I have the impression that I have been (since October) experiencing a constant (sometimes even overnight) increase of action height in my uv70p. It is true that this guitar went under many stages, sent back to germany, returned with basically nothing more than a nice setup, was diagnosed...

    In my new UV70p i just got yesterday, the action in the 3 middle saddles goes like D less than A less than G , (with action of high E measuring 1.2mm and low B 1.5mm @24th fret) which does not make much sense. I would suppose for action to grow gradually from G->D->A. Is the above normal? Neck...

    What's up guys? So I just have a question about the pickup height. I just put a Duncan Distortion TB6 into my RG1570L and it looks a lot higher than the V8 that was in there. I know it's a bigger pickup and I removed the weatherstripping that was in there but it still looks pretty high to me. I...

    I need your help brothers.. i removed the parts of my guitar's edge trem for cleaning purposes. I also removed the saddles so that it can also be clean. after cleaning the parts, i restringed and found out that my strings are now unbalanced in terms of string height. My B string is lower than...

    May seem like an odd question coming from somebody who takes a lot of pride doing my own setups. But im just wandering, with perfectly level frets and relief, action, intonation etc all set. Why do some guitars achieve very nice low action without fret buzz and yet others do not manage this? I...

    Looking down my Ibanez 7 string with a floating trem. I can see (what seems to me) a very large height difference between my low B and my low E string. The low B string sits 1mm LOWER than the E at the saddle. I understand that each saddle on a trem is a different height to match fretboard...

    Iv been an Ibanez player for 6 years and very recently purchased my very first 7 string RG1257!! I am a guitar setup fanatic and do all my own setting up and maintenance and fretwork etc. On my 6 string i go for a tiny bit of relief and an action height of around 1.6mm at the 12th fret. On...

    Hey guys, I'm looking for shorter length saddle height screws for my RG321MHs bridge. It is the bridge previous to the Gibraltar bridge. I'm just looking to make the bridge feel smooth so when I palm mute the screws don't dig in to my palm. Do you guys know where I can find those shorter saddle...

    Hello everyone, I searched everywhere for an answer to this question, but couldn't find any answers. I recently bought a prestige RG1570 with a edge pro tremolo bridge. I was wondering if there's a way of increasing the height of the tremolo arm. Not the whole bridge. Just the arm. Because...

    hey, folks Ok, not sure if i put this post in the right topic and how well i can ask about what i am wondering about, but here goes: i am wondering if the height of a fret can affect sustain and articulation of the note? if not what can really tall frets do for you and what low ones can? thanks

    it says on every website and manual i can find that before you raise or lower the bridge height adjustment on an edge, you need to loosen the "stud lock screw". apparently you do this with a 1.5mm allen wrench. these are inside the stud bolts right? the 2 bolts that the knife edge pivots on...

    Hi, I'm looking for some help regarding setting up my pickups on my jem 7dbk. It's fitted with the breed neck and bridge humbuckers and a single coil in the centre which I'm not sure of the details about. Any tips on height to achieve more sustain and clarity etc? Any advice or feedback is...
