low strings

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Maybe I'm missing something but there used to be a thread / site where it explained in detail the step by step set up of the different tremelos. Can anyone point me in that direction?

    My apologies if this has been covered. I've searched through Rich's site, and a lot of old posts. I'm disappointed because I've installed an Arming Adjuster, and I'm still having problems with trem return. Right after I installed it, the return was great. I checked with my tuner, and it was...

    I'm just wondering what Dimarzio pups you guys have in your strats, both humbuckers and singles, and how do you like them?

    I have the CS-3 Compressor and was wondering if you guys had any setting suggestions for it. I've been fiddling around with it, and I usually find that it makes my bass strings very tinny and bright and adds a lot of feedback. Usually in order to get it to affect my tone the least I have to up...

    I really want to tune my guitar to C G C F A D... but I have a floyd rose... I'm planning on buying a tremol-no with the deep C and always leave it fixed to make thing easier but I really don't know what string gauges I should use. I was thinking of a 11-15-22p-30(or 32?)-44-56 set but I'm not...

    I've been using EB 10's since I got my RG550 and recently I've been finding them really tense and bending is not the easiest thing in the world (I've tried stretching them A LOT). I was just wondering how much of a difference there is with 9's rather than 10's. Would 9's feel looser and help...

    I started writing this long, long ago but I never finished it. It has been sat on my hard drive for ages, but I figured someone somewhere might benefit from this information. So here it is... incomplete, but probably quite useful? I don't know. Maybe I'll finish it one day. STRING TENSION...

    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...

    I have a Japan Made fernandes revolver. Here are the pics. The Low Estrings dont line up well over the pickup and the frets its self. How would i fix this? Or is this normal? I just got into guitars with trems.

    Alright guys. I recently got a RG560 and I wanna put new pickups in it. Now I usually play heavy stuff, but lately I am trying to diversify. The only famous player's guitar tone I absolutely love is Joe Satriani's. So naturally I was looking at the Mo'Joe for the bridge, but is it able to get...

    Hello from Finland! I was wondering if here are others ibanez owners who have made scallopings to the fretboard? I did mine two years ago for my S 370, scalloped the whole board with very deep scallopings. It took me long time to get used to it, but now i don't wanna play guitar without...

    Hi guys I'm in love with my PAF Pro's and being a Dimarzio nut I would like to install something similar in a 7 string I will be getting soon. I've searched the Dimarzio site and they only have the standard PAF 7 string pups, not PAF Pro. Can anyone advise as to which Dimarzio closely...

    For some reason whenever I search on this site my browser "quits unexpectedly"; sorry if this thread has been done. Anyway, I lowered my bridge (Lo-Pro) as far as it will go and I'm still not happy with my action. I'd like it lower, and I've seen other threads where someone says "you should...

    I've been recording using cubase se for around 1 1/2 years and am happy for the most part with the final product but would like to learn more regarding EQ, mixing and frequencies. I understand you should have certain frequencies for certain instruments and too much of a certain frequency between...

    I have noticed that when on the neck pickup of my jem the low strings are much louder than the high strings, and its really pissing me off. anybody have any idea? The pickup height is adjusted properly. Another thing I noticed, not having to do with the pickups htough, is my jem is extremely...
