I recently took off all the strings on my guitar. When all of them were off, I did a little cleaning. Now, when i strung the low E string, only a harmonic comes out. I think i might have messed with the bridge. How do I fix this???

Would love to help if I could but don't understand what your asking. "Only a harmonic comes out" Forgive me but don't know what problem your having here.

do you mean the E on fret 12 come out if its .so you have to adjust the nut bridge of the E string to up or down by screw
other wise re-string your guitar with a new set and every thing will be ok .

Well, did you messed with the bridge or not? It is an important difference there man smile.gif

If you did tell us what you have changed, and describe the sound of the high E string little more. Do you hear the string buzzing with the frets? Did you change the string gauge?
