Sounds like your action mat be set a little low and maybe your neck relief needs adjustment - I'd take it to a tech.

Prices can vary widely, I have heard as low as $25, but my tech charges a lot more than that (but he is pretty darned good).

Oh and Besip,
check your warranty/purchase documents. You might be due a free set up anyway - lots of shops do this within the first year of purchase of a new guitar. It allows for settling in of the guitar. Does depend though on the shop and/or guitar make.

Cheers,
Tony

I always found the best way to change the strings on a guitar is to do it one by one, start with the high E string, change it, Stretch it real good by pulling on it right in the middle of the fretboard(I give it 3 or 4 real good tugs) then I tune the string close to in tune then move on to the next string. I do this all the way thru until I change all 6 strings. Once I've changed my last string I then go back to the High E string and put it in tune then do this to all 6 strings. Once I've done this to the Low E string I then chack the tuning and make fine adjustments to every string as needed. I then play the guitar, when I'm done playing I check the tuning again, if I stretched the string correctly and put the guitar in tune properly the strings should all still be in tune. Occasionally I might get a string that is more elastic than the others and I might have to tune it but more often than not the guitar is in tune and stays that way( I own an ibanez with a floating tremolo).

BTW: There are no stupid questions other than the one not asked.

not to me, sounds like he has a problem. if it was just action, the frets should all start to buzz at the same time, one should not stand out. they don't on any of my guitars.

it would not be the neck rod, you can get that on the first couple frets if you set it perfectly straight, but that would not occur on the 5th.

learn to do it yourself. this getting someone to do that is silly in my view. there are only so many variables, it is not that difficult to set it how you want. I just started playing a year ago, and make all adjustments on mine.

that being said, if you snap your truss rod, don't blame me. read about it, and don't force it.


get a little mechanic's ruler at home depot, that measures in 1/64 of an inch. 2 bucks. You want that. Hopefully the tools you need came with the guitar for the truss rod, and bridge if you have adjustments there. If so, Ace Hardware sells tiny allen wrenches individually.


one reason I say to learn yourself, is over time you may change things. I am not sure what I will do in a month or two, i just know how i have it set now, and it is very low. maybe I change my mind as my style evolves, and then I tweak it. but why take it to anybody, just learn how to do it yourself, nothing magical. internet is a great resource to read up on this.

that being said, you have a high fret. maybe the wood swelled, I don't know. that will have to be taken care of by a shop.

I doubt that the one string at a time bit mattered. probably more important on acoustic. I agree to change one at a time, but don't expect that it is a big deal on electric. sounds like one of those things that came from the acoustic area where it was more important, and got carried forward.

Actually, I disagree ...

Changing one string at a time is the easiest way of working with a Floyd Rose style bridge - taking them all off at once means the bridge retreats into the guitar and it gets difficult to work with, or you need to wedge the bridge with something. Changing one string at a time gets around this. However, i would recommend occasionally biting the bullet and taking them all off so you can give your guitar a proper clean.

Those of us with Les Pauls need not concern themselves with this smile.gif
