How to Change Strings on a Dean Vendetta Guitar

Dean Vendetta is a company that makes a wide range of electric guitars. These guitars are used by famous musicians and bands such as Alice in Chains and Megadeath. If you own a Dean Vendetta guitar, you will need to change the strings periodically in order to keep your guitar sounding bright and crisp. Without changing the strings, your instrument will sound dull due to dirt and oil build-up on the strings.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* Dean Vendetta guitar
* String winder
* Guitar strings
* Electronic tuner
* Wire cutters


Locate the high E string. This is the string that is highest and thinnest and closest to the ground when you play the guitar.

Loosen the high E string by turning its tuning key counterclockwise. Use a string winder for this if you have one. Pull the string off of the tuning peg and out through the bridge.

Insert a new high E string through the hole in the bridge, up the neck, to the head of the guitar.

Thread the string through the hole in the tuning key so that about two inches extends beyond the hole.

Hold the string at the top end of the neck in one hand as you turn the tuning key clockwise with the other hand. A string winder makes this task much easier.

Continue to wind the string until it tightens to pitch. Use an electronic tuner to check the pitch.

Clip off the excess string with wire cutters.

Repeat these steps to install the B, G, D, A, and low E strings.


Tips & Warnings

*
Expect to re-tune often for the first few hours after installing the new strings, as they tend to stretch quite a bit at first.

Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya..

SOURCE: Whenever I touch anything metal on my guitar it

You have a grounding problem ! You need to BOND (electrically connect) all the metal parts including the cases and shafts of the volume controls and switches. OFTEN the cavity with the controls are painted with a conductive paint such as Aquadag or NicklePrint which is then bonded to the barrel part of the jack you plug into. Note, while this helps the buzzing due to touching the metaal parts, it will not eliminate hum if you get your guitar pickups into a magnetic field from transformers, etc.

SOURCE: i have a dean vendetta xm and it wont make sound

If the wiring is correct on the guitar, try plugging it in to a different amp. If you still don't get any sound, the problem may be a faulty volume or tone potentiometer (or pot. The knob, for simpler words). These are fairly easy to replace if you know how to solder. If not, then watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLfXXRfRIzY

You can get the pots from Musician's Friend, Guitar Center, or any music store that carries guitar parts.

If that doesn't fix it, then the problem is in your pickups. You can get "aftermarket" pickups through the above mentioned dealers, and you're not restricted to the original pickups.

What you replace them with will affect your tone, so do some research before settling on a set of pickups. Active pickups will give you more gain (great for nu-metal and hi-gain applications) and have lower output noise, but they require batteries. Passive pickups have no need for batteries, but tend to produce slightly more noise and hum.

Hopefully, it's the pots. That will be the cheaper fix, since they run about $2-$4USD each. Pickups can range from $100-$500USD a set.

Hope that helps!

How to change strings on vendetta


the strings on most floyd rose tremelo systems require a small allen wrench(hex head) to loosen the pressure on the bolts holding the **** end of the string in. should be easy access from the top of the guitar. hold the guitar up to your face, **** end first and look up the body towards the neck. there should be six different screw ends visible. loosen counter clockwise. you have to trim the ball end off of a new set with wire cutters in order to replace.

I need a wiring diagram for a dean vendetta guitar


Go to either Fender, Gibson, or another guitar company, and look up wiring diagrams. Anything with 2 humbuckers and a switch is wired essentially the same.

can be a number of things . i'll do my best with a check list. 1. Are they active pick ups.? (they need power source , usually 9 volt battery). 2. Check your cords. 3. check your amp. ( what i do, if you can, use a guitar that you know works. and check cords and amp with that. or try your guitar thru a different amp).AND THAT'S IF,. as you say your wiring is correct , and you've eliminated that part of it .I'd start with that

The wiring is messed up the volume knob does not work right


If nobody has changed the wiring in this guitar, suspect either a broken wire or possibly a cracked resistance element in the volume pot. This can happen if the knob on it takes a blow.
