    Hi all, I've got an RG2570 (2003 model) that is a dream to play, nice low action and great sound. I've changed the strings (at a shop) and my guitar is now riddled with buzz all over the place, the bridge is as it should be - flush to the body - and the action was as I had it, but now its...

    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...

    Just curious. I have a BFP and a PMC. Same body wood, same fretboard wood, same pickups and everything else I think. Why would the PMC sound twice as bright as the BFP? This is probably a stupid question, hopefully some of the experts here can put my mind at ease nonetheless. BTW, I like the...

    I usually use Dean Markley Blue Steel 9-42 for standard tuning. I want it to feel similar for Eb tuning. Should I get 9.5 or 10's?

    How much do you pay and what brand do you use, and also maybe give us a heads up on where you purchase them so fellow jemsiters can get a good deal!

    Hey, I recently ran out of strings, and I like to buy online because its so much cheaper than canadian stores (we pay $13 for one set of D'addarios..) so yea, I did it before, bought like 10 sets, but unfortunately when you have 10 guitars, that doesnt last fast lol Now unfortunately, my...

    Check out the cool new featurette on Thomas Nordegg at : http://www.vai.com/tn/index.html And by the way, don't remember it what thread people claimed tring stretching wasn'nt necessary at all, here is the concluding remark of Thomas as a guitar tech for Steve : "Read the tuner right and...

    Hey I have a S470 with a ZR trem and lately i have to buy pack after pack of strings. what happens is that the strings often break (only at the bridge) when i pull up on the trem. as in if i do kind of a Dimebag style harmonic scream. at first i thought there where little sharp points or...

    Ok i broke some strings on my Jem. and i wanted to go and change the strings. so i walked to guitar center. i asked for an opinion of which strings to buy. i wanted to try something new because my old strings were sorta loose. so i thouhgt that getting 10s instead of 9s would help. so i asked...

    Alright. So I bought a boss metal zone on evilbay for about $70AUD. Judging from the general opinions of others, i was expecting the pedal to be a master in many styles of metal. I plugged it in and was rather disappointed, the distortion was good for heavy rhythm I guess, but on its own for...

    Hi Folks, I have the changed strings on my RG320FM yesterday (with no change in gauge), and have re-attached the locking nuts today. The low E and A are buzzing like mad when I play accoustically. I have spent the past hour adjusting the stud screws on both sides of the tremolo. I have tried...

    Based on the some Fender Trems, Fender has strings with a bullet end that fits into the trem better then using a ball end. What strings do you use?

    Which string gauges do you guys use on your 7s if not the standard 9-54, and how many of you needed to have truss-rod adjustment as a result of changing gauges?

    Do different brands of strings really make a difference? Is there a good cause for using different strings on a maple fret board guitar than you would on a rosewood fret board guitar? Can different strings warm up a bright sounding guitar?

    Im wondering what everyone uses for strings. Especially considering the amount of floyd users there are here. Guage of strings, brand and type. I am using D'Addario XL Nickel Wound strings. 0.010 guage.

    since ibanez's come with D'Addario I use them most of the time. I experimented with some other popular brands. dean markley is too harsh. ernie ball is too soft and lasts too short, etc. How is GHS compared to D'Addario in terms of tone, tension and life time?
