What's up everybody!? Last week my uncle Jason gave me a Boss Digital Studio! He said that was pretty much all you need back in the day. It also came w/ a wav compressor for mp3's. Good enough for collab advice please!!! Just for the mean time until I can get something more expensive. Good news I will have enough money to buy a new guitar in 2-3 days! Probably an Ibanez prestige 655 or 652 , I'm thinking 655 learn how to use the floyd

Thank you bro!

Money for guitar came in! Went to a local shop and picked one up instead of ordering it online. Action is maybe a bit too high any suggestions? Just to make sure the intonation is right and leveling of the bridge, haha maybe I should of bought it online. Probably would have been in tune wink.gif

Sure smile.gif Just take it to a luthier and have them do a full "setup" on it which should include intonation and lowering the action. Then get it back and jam away!

If you just spent $1,000 on an instrument, I wouldn't try to make this your "learning session" on setup, but it's up to you smile.gif
The instrument probably needs to be properly intonated, there are tons of videos on youtube on how to do this. There are not hard and fast numbers really as each guitar is setup to each player. But generally speaking, you can lower the action, and intonate it yourself, but be very careful. If you twist the truss rod too far, you can damage the rod/neck permanently. sad.gif
