    I got a used js1200 ca and noticed the low and high E string saddles sit a bit lower than the rest. This makes an uneven level for the strings. I see the plate that goes under the A,D,G,and B strings. No way to adjust height. Are all the saddles the same dimension or are they out of order? The...

    yo peeps, Some of you may remember the deal I had with a LB maple necked 550 that didn't work out. Well good karma has come my way. Traded my black Gambale for a Heather Pearl (or Cosmic Mist maybe?) 550 and some cash. She needs some cleaning up and is in pretty good shape but the neck is in...

    Ok, so, about 3 weeks ago I placed a bid on a JS100 on sleaz**** whilst drinking a few too many beers. Sadly enough my bid, the first and only bid on the guitar, was the winner. Yay me!!, I was saving up for a 1k or 12k. I hate beer and the ease of the internet sometimes!!! Like now!!! Now, I...

    I'm building my own custom 7-string Tele, so I had some 7-string Tele bridges made-to-order (details in this thread on sevenstring.org). Like anything made in small numbers, they cost a lot, so I got a few extras and now I'm selling them off. Like the original 1950s Fender bridges, mine are...

    Hi All I recently purchased an American series standard strat. It really like it put I have found a problem. The shop setup was crap so I brought it home to set it up, I adjusted the string heights at each individual saddle to my specs, the problem is that the 2 adjustable allen key screws...

    Just wondering if anyone has touched on this question or not? If these new Z-edge tremolo's are Ibanez's new rage for the 2008 prestiges, then why do the Steve Vai & Satch models still have the old Edge pro bridges in them for the new 2008 catalogue??? Weird? The new Z-Edge trem may not be...

    So, I've been fighting with the intonation of my 77FP for a long time. Just can't get it right. I've adjusted everything I've dared but still. The problem is with the higher strings. Notes sound good below the 14th fret but out of tune above it. I've set the intonation for the 12th fret. But...

    I know this has been addressed before, so sorry if I am beating a dead horse. I have a 2610 that constantly will not return to pitch after using the bar. It doesn't always happen, but when it does, I am usually mid song and have to slap or pull the bar to get the guitar back in tune. I am...

    I recently raised the action on my RG, after all these months of wanting the lowest action possible. Let me tell you, it was like lifting a blanket off my sound! All my notes are now much "fuller", and they sustain a lot longer. At first, it was a little difficult getting used to, but after a...
