I came across this guys' videos a while back and was just looking at it again as I'm setting up my strat with new strings (as well as my Schecter), and I thought it was worth sharing.



I love his accent as well laugh.gif

Ah Frudua.com! I have seen many of this guys video's, good stuff man. Although I did have to disagree with one of them where he said there was no need to stretch out your strings when putting on new ones. That has never been the case for me, no matter how I put them on , I always have to stretch them out if I want them to stay in tune. wink.gif

Well spotted AK! I also do not agree with it unless somebody plays really soft. I made myself a period of fighting with every possible tips about strat set-up (including trem) and on every guitar I see many similar issues - one of those were that ALWAYS strings had to be well stretched before playing,so You could trust that using whammy bar will not destroy the tuning. Also the way I tuned the guitars with strat types tremolos were different.

Yeah man, I am sure the guys is very skilled at working on, setting up. and possibly even building stringed instruments . But I have to wonder if he actually plays one after hearing him say what he did about not having to stretch a new set of strings. smile.gif

It worked great for my strat, mind you, but my strings were probably stretched enough first. He has some other set up videos which are quite nice and easy to follow too though.

That was interesting..I remember that when I hard tailed my Fender strat I think had to alter the truss rod slightly to compensate..although I cant remember exactly. I now want at least one guitar with a tremelo so I will try and de hard tail the strat again with this video. I wonder if I will alter the truss back? huh.gif

bridge angle changes the strings height too so You can either tweak the saddles height or truss rod adjustment. It's natural. But as for the G-string I still didn't found that "magic factor" responsible for this. Believe me - I do have a guitar service as well and I can understand that some people doesn't even do much and it works in their guitars.But what's funny. I talk about two the same models I had in my service in a quite short time period.

I'm also afraid sometimes we could not understand each other so well without an opportunity to take our guitars in our hands to compare.
