SOURCE: Fender Jazz Bass E string saddle vibrates down

Hi Mike,

If the sound is like a string vibrating against something, ensure that is not strings (usually G) vibrating against the bridge.

Ensure that the two screw on the saddle are well in place.

Ensure also that the vibration is not coming from a string vibrating against the frets, in that case you can fix the problem by adjusting the action and rectifying the bow of the neck.

In either case, if the sadde and neck bow are cause of vibration, try tweaking the saddles a little, and lowering the position of the saddle a bit downward. Try also to rectify the neck. turning the apposite screw.

Try restoring to factory settings first by turning it on while holding down the Level,Fx,Setupand Trans keys all at the same time. Your key delay function might be out of adjustment. You also have to remember to keep at least one of your thumbs on one of the earth plates. Refer to your owners manual. Start with the factory settings and compare each page of the manual to your instrument until you familiarize yourself completely with the manual. Play the instrument for a while with factory settings until you decide where you have to make changes. Work slowly with each adjustment and the manual until you get what you want. Some adjustments will affect others. Take careful note of what the manual says about temperature and humidity changes.

SOURCE: I have Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and Blues Deluxe

I want you to do a test. while using the amp plug a pair of headphones into the preamp out... note you will only hear stuff on one side if they are stereo phones and the sound may be fairly weak... while the unit is operating correctely then unplug phones and use it. When it fades out plug in phones compare the level when it was OK... If the preamp output fades lower as well, then we know problem is in the preamp section...

We can do a lot of troubleshooting without opening the amp.

I see nothing in the scheamtics that should be an issue causing this...

Since it didn't fail for the tech, think "what was different?". Are you connecting something else? Foot pedal? Temperature? :Loudness of playing?

Now what else is in common to these two units... AHA! The guitar...

If your guitar has a battery in it, the 20 to 30 minutes fading would correspond to a battery failing and then recovering after you unplug the guitar for a while.

SOURCE: Fix Reverb unit on Fender Hot-Rod Deluxe Amp

Could have broken a spring in the reverb tank, or a wire connecting it to the amp, or the reverb driver tube, or a few other things, but those are the most likely in this situation. Thats what I'd check first. Give it a little slap and if it vibrates like normal, your spring is probably ok, you can still open it up and double check though. Check your wires. Then pull your reverb driver tube and replace it. If that doesn't work, it is probably in the circuit somewhere, and you should not work on your amp unless you know what you are doing. They store large amounts of electicity in the caps and they can kill you.

SOURCE: how do i connect the boss gt 10 to a fender blues

You can plug the output of the gt10 into the "power amp in" jack of the Fender. This bypasses the preamps in the Fender but uses a buffer amps in the Fender to drive the power amp. Please note that the reverb is STILL in the circuit when you do this. You can turn the reverb to zero if you wish to disable it.

How do i adjust intonation on a peavey predator plus exp?


To adjust the intonation on a guitar you need the following. ..
a electronic tuner
and a small philip screwdriver

when you tune a string say low E you play the note open and adjust tell it's in tune
then to intonate play the low E at the 12th fret
producing a Harmonic, view the tuner it will be sharp or flat,
turn the small philip screw on the bridge adjustment
it only takes a small turn one way or the other so go slow
once the string is tuned at the harmonic note check to see if it's in tune played open, keep tuning and adjusting tell the strings are in tune open and at the 12th fret on all six strings
once intonation is set properly the guitar will sound better
really hope that helps?

I can't set my intonation on my 2012 fender american strat hss.i have done what they say to do but it doesn't help


okay first you must look at the frets if they are flattened out this is one reason and no matter what you do you will not be able to do it because the flattened frets are now making string contact further up in the scale length instead of in the center of the fret look at your string when you press it down it will be making contact on the very front of the fret making the notes sharp and driving you crazy with repeated attempts at setting the intonation you need a fret dressing if this is not the case and the frets are not worn but the strings are high off the fret board the neck relief needs to be adjusted to much neck curve upward results in higher string travel to be fretted which will add higher pressure to fret a note and making them sound sharp to check the neck take a capo clamp it at 1st fret now go to the fret where the neck joins the body and depress it count back to the halfway point and see how much space is between the top of the fret and the bottom of the string this should be around the eighth fret or seventh take a matchbook cover or a thin piece of plastic like a laminate you cover your pictures or documents with put it between the string and the fret the right height should be that it just fits between without moving the string once you've done this you should be able to intonate but please inspect all your frets first for flattening wear from playing if buzzing occurs after setting the frets in that are higher up the neck need to be dressed because they are not as worn as your regular playing zone which will make them a little taller when adjusting the truss rod do it 1/8 of a turn at a time do not crank it they are very sensitive to torque and the neck will bend backwards you must go slowly restringing and unbolting the neck unless your truss rod is at the headstock these are much easier but still require a little at a time 1/8 turns and patience good luck

Nashville tele that has the g string sounds off when playing


if you have the adjustable bridge try moving it back a little bit. the g string is a heavy string and will tend to go sharp when you have the string height up a little. make small adjustments usually only one turn or half a turn at a time. take care to note your adjustments so you can always go back to where you started. turners are nice but the ear doesn't lie. if it sounds right it's right

My AG6 tuner its wrong at the moment of intonation. I comprobe it with a computer tunner (a program). I need to now how to tune my tuner. Thanks


Your Fender tuner is crystal controlled and if you set it for A440 Hz, it will be far more accurate than any computer program can generate. Most of these tuners have the ability to be set at different reference pitches. If your guitar intonation doesn't match at the 12th fret, then you have a guitar setup problem, not the tuner. The intonationation is set at the bridge if you have a bridge with individual adjustments.

I bought a Hagstrom Ultra Swede which sounded very nice when I first bought it but after 3 months I seem to have alot of tuning problems with it. It has been intonated twice and a new set of heavier...


Considerations:

1. Intonation problems can be due to worn strings even if the guitar is set up properly. New Strings can fix this. This is the most common problem.

2. Also, changing string size may effect your set up too. Typically, new guitars come with lighter strings such as (9's) which the guitar is set up for. The positive is that 9's fret easily. The negative is that they bend too easily for some players who either slightly bend them when chording (accidentally), or press too hard on guitars with jumbo sized frets, which in turn bends the string toward the fret board causing detuning. To fix these items folks may suggest you get a heavier string like a (10), but the problem can often be solved by playing with a lighter hand, pressing only enough to make contact with the fret and not pressing the string all the way to the fretboard. Check your intonation using this light touch method and see if it's okay verses pressing the string all the way to the fretboard. If the intonation is okay with the light touch, the guitar intonation is set up properly. You may want to consider playing with a lighter hand or getting a guitar without jumbo frets such as Fender strats etc...

Putting a heavier string on a guitar set up for (9's) would likely cause the buzzing that wasn't there before. In this case you'd need the guitar and neck set up again to accomodate the 10's. So decide what size string you want and set the guitar up for that size.

These considerations are true for any electric guitars.

After consideration of all of the above, you still feel it's the guitar, I suggest you push for a replacement or perhaps credit toward another guitar.

The frets MAY be worn or the neck truss rod MAY need adjustment, Neither of these is DIY unless yiu have experience in repoairing guitars. Since this is only on the 2nd string, inspect the frets for wear and the only DIY thing to try is to replace that string... DO that first !!!

I would suggest that you search the web regarding this problem. It is rare that the nut (near the headstock) would cause a problem with intonation. There is a minimum clearance to the first fret which the height of the nut controls. If it is too low that will cause fret buzz. The bridge would be a more probable cause with intonation.
