So I finally went to a guitar tech.
The adjusted the neck and the problem didnt dissappear ohmy.gif
So they passed me on to a famous guitar tech who has fixed guitars for a lot of famous bands.
He had a look at it, adjusted the strings and my problem was solved tongue.gif Didnt cost me anything.

So It turned out the neck was the problem, maybe, it can take time for necks to adjust but it worked out well when it took it to the other guitar tech.

Also, my humbuckers are not adjustable, or well they are but you have to put bricks under and adjust, but they are supposed to be fasten on the the guitar body. Van halen invented this I think.

Also, my POD x3 doesnt supply the best of sounds either, it sounded good through the amps at the guitar tech
But it works out now smile.gif Very nice to play on now, the guitar smile.gif

Very nice!! I am really happy that you got your problem fixed! It is really important to adjust your guitar once a year or so it depends how much you are playing! Even expensive guitars needs to be adjusted! And I am glad you found a good guitar tech!

I dont know how to say in english but when the neck was adjusted (loosen maybe u say)
the guitar strings felt much more alive, and easier to bend etc.

My only problem is now the guitar tech lowered the strings stupidly low tongue.gif Cant do harmonics now again smile.gif

What model do you have? I've owned a couple dozen Ibanez over the years and still have four RG's and a Universe I'd never part with. I've become something of an expert on them, because I couldn't afford to pay a tech once I had more than a few guitars. Just curious.
