I got my new (little-bit-used) Guitar today smile.gif

Its an Ibanez RG 350 DX cool.gif

It been used only 4 months and its in perfect shape happy.gif
The guy who sold it even put new strings on it and gave it a good cleaning last week.
It also came with a very nice ibanez M100C hardcase.

Before this one, i only had my cheap starter kit 'Riverstring' Strat, so its a big change smile.gif
I love the wizard2 neck and edge3 bridge tremelo (wich doesnt detune the whole guitar with a 1 second whammy ;P)


The only problem is that the guy wasnt sure how to properly set up this kind of bridge after the string change,
is that easy for me to find out, or should i take it to a guitar store to let someone do it for me?
(the high e-string gets muted when you fret it any higher then 17th fret)




I dont have any pictures of it yet but here is a pic of the same model for those who dont know it biggrin.gif

Kaz is right laugh.gif But I would recommend someone more experienced, like Muris, but if you do have any questions, I'll do my best to help smile.gif

Thanks everyone smile.gif

I got the bridge set up at the right hight now using those videos, but now i cant get it in tune
Like, i tune the first string then second and when i tuned the 3rd string the 1st is out of tune again.

I saw something in the 3rd vid (later added on youtube after the first 2)
about puting something under the bridge while tuning..
i might try that tomorrow, or else ill take it to a shop to make sure its right smile.gif

Joruus, this is something I think every guitar player should learn. So Google INTONATION and see what you find. If you have any questions, PM me and I will try to help.

Yeah, that's a good trick, I don't use it tho smile.gif

About the tuning, you just have tune it over and over, until it's close to the desired pitch... Then use the fine tuners to tune it perfectly... You might want also want to try tuning the string a little sharp ( if they do go flat everytime, if they go sharp then tune them a little flat ) so they wont fall too far from tune everytime smile.gif

I hope that makes sense

Cheers smile.gif

I got it into tune yesterday and let it rest a night..
But now when i put on the locks at the nut everything is a bit out of tune again, some flat some sharp
(using podxt's tuner, everything does stay just within the brackets but doesnt come in the center and doesnt show the little arrows)


What are fine tuners? and can i use them after locking on the nut? That would sure help me alot.
(im guessing they are the little knobs at the end of the bridge wich can be turned without any wrench.. but i want to know for sure before touch them tongue.gif )

Also the intonation on each string is off a little bit (1 or 2 dots sharper at 12th fret on podxt tuner), can i change Intonation after locking the nut?

Yeah, the fine tuners are just for that purpose, that you can FINE tune it after locking the nuts smile.gif

The locks must be opened tho, when setting up intonation smile.gif ( I think biggrin.gif )

Thanks smile.gif

When i was tuning yesterday i forgot about the locks and broke my high e-string unsure.gif
I put on 6 new strings after removing all the old 6 strings at once, after this it was alot easyer to get tuned right, the tuning of first string didnt change as much after tuning the others like it did the day before.
With the old stings the first string would be off a whole tone, now it only went flat a bit.
(so sometimes breaking a string is good? ;P)

Anyway this makes me being alot more carefull with touching things im not sure about now..


I just hope changing the intonation with locks open doesn't mess up the whole
tuning again and makes me do it all over again tongue.gif

Well, I don't think it's going to change it dramatically, but I'm sure you have to re-tune after, but no biggie smile.gif
My guitars intonation also isn't pitch perfect on all strings, but I don't mind biggrin.gif
