    Hey, I finally got a UV7BK and when taking it apart for cleaning, I noticed the string blocks were oriented with the hole/indentation away from the body which felt wrong, but I can't remember what the correct orientation is. Well, what is it? A vs B:

    I have this white RG350DXZ which appears to be a 2011 Indonesian Cor-Tek model A problem that occurs when I pluck the open low E-string - or actually fretting any note at all - is that the note will die off abormally soon and it sounds like it has some component in the guitar buzzing. Also, the...

    Hi I have a few ibanez's that comes stringed with 9 gauge strings. I believe they are Super Wizard Prestige necks measuring 17mm-19mm. I have thought of re stringing them with 10 gauges but are they recommended for such a thin neck like the Super Wizard Prestige? Should I just stick with 9 gauges?

    Hey, guys! Got couple simple and probably obvious questions, with pics: 1) The first one is about string action. Here's a photo of 6th string (E) action on 12th fret: So the thing is, since I don't have a point of reference, what will be considered the string action here - 2 mm (when the...

    I want to lower the string action on my Premium 920QM, I think it has the Edge Zero 2 system. I lowered the stems already, but it is not enough. What is next, do I need to use the thumb screw on the back? I guess I would like to get higher tensions on the springs in the back?

    I've got an RG450M that I bought in December 2013. I've been using it on the road a lot, and it's been working great up until a few weeks ago. The high E string (which is a .009) keeps breaking at the locking nut way too frequently than it normally does, and I have no idea why. I examined the...

    I want to raise the high E string height SLIGHTLY, as the high e string is hitting the fretboard so much, I can't even get any notes out of it. As I understand it, the string height on a Edge tremolo cannot be adjusted individually? With some research on the net, I figured I need to loosen the...

    Hello, I recently changed my strings on my JS2410 (same gauge, but different brand - EB Slinkys to Elixirs) and the action on my guitar has dramatically increased. I just had my guitar setup (including truss rod adjustment) last month at a professional luthier. I wonder if the change in string...

    Here's my newest lesson video! My students constantly come to me looking to improve their string bending… the cleanliness, the intonation, the whole nine yards. To me, thats always an area of someone's playing that i can hear and tell if they are a beginner or a more advanced player. So i...

    I came into possesion of a near mint Jem7BSB. In the process of cleaning and restringing I had the g string fretting out/buzzing on the 12th fret while fretting the 11th fret. The fret wasn't raised up, worn down, and had no visible issues. If I bent the B string up to the same position the...

    Hey all. Used to own a 25.5" scale Ibanez premium 7 string. Got fed up with the low B string going sharp on the attack, tried bigger gauges but then found i hated how huge the string had to be to stop the problem. Ended up with big boomy mismatched low B. Ended up buying a premium 6 string...

    For 3 years ago, I didn’t play for a couple a months, so my calluses was not very perfect, but that was something I should change again after I had purchasing my new 7 string. Unfortunately, after only playing for a week I developed a finger cut while I was sliding and that is something I have...

    Can't believe it: http://www.ibanez.co.jp/artist/artist2008.php?CATEGORY_ID=1&area=3&key=D I feel so humble to endorse these guitar I have loved for so long. I don't think I would ever consider playing another 7 string guitar. Thank you Ibanez! www.danadechaby.com

    Don't know why its taken so many years for this to become an issue. I have a light pick attack/ fretting hand as it is and play a 7 string with 9-42+56 gauge strings. I have noticed that when my guitar is in perfect tune (according to tuner) my wound E and B strings go noticeably sharp when i...

    Despite what i understood about this subject, today i have been proven wrong. "Thicker strings tuned to the same pitch = less buzz" This makes perfect sense when taking the physics of the string into account. HOWEVER after switching a few times now between sets of 9-42 and 10-46 i can safely...

    So I was using my old Ibanez RG270, then i wanted to try an idea. Block the trem and go for C# Standard tuning, as lo-trs 2 can not stay in tune. I was using gibson strings for the last month, 0.10 's. Of course string tension wasn't enough, and low end wasn't that great, but overall no...

    just got a New guitar, A schecter Damien Elite solo 6 in black. It plays nice with Metal, Rock, And anything in between. I would like to know Everyone else's opinion who has had a schecter before. My personal opinion is that it feels nice, especially the finished neck. I'm not a big fan of the...

    Just got my first 26.5 scale 7 string ibby. Always been a 25.5 player. Been a 9-42 user, have occasionally tried different gauges but always found that 9-42 suits me best. What gauge would feel the same on my new 26.5? Im struggling to find a set that all match up using the string tension...

    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...
