Make my bass strings feel lose

When I install my strings on my electric bass guitar (it is an IBANEZ SR 506) and make them feel light without changing the pitch or having to use a capo?

SOURCE: Guitar strings on a mandolin.

By now you may have solved this problem, but maybe this information is still helpful:

What you are essentially recreating is a tenor guitar. Many companies make tenor guitar strings. I would suggest D'Addario J66 80/20 Bronze Tenor Guitar Strings (10-32). I've done this a few times and it is quite fun and makes for an interesting travel guitar.

Have a blast!

SOURCE: which string used for epiphone gibson lea paul special II guitar

This is really a personal choice as long as the strings are made for an electric guitar there are hundreds of different kinds, it mostly has to do with the thickness of the strings and how the thinner the string the easier it is to manulipulate, you should go to a good music store and tell them what type of music you play and they will give you some choices.

SOURCE: My bass guitar wont connect to my amp.

Assuming that the amplifier is functioning properly, I suspect that the problem is either in the cord, the plug socket on the bass, or the volume control potentiometer. First, I would try another cord that is known to be in good condition (ALWAYS plug the cord into the instrument FIRST). Second, carefully remove the cord receptacle plug from the bass and examine the solder joints (check for loose wires). Third, carefully remove the plate that holds the volume and tone pots. Examine these controls for loose wires or faulty solder joints. CAUTION: If solder joints are found to be the culprit, care must be taken to correct this problem. If too much heat enters the pot, it can be ruined!

SOURCE: Have Line 6 Variax 700 6 String Modeling Guitar

The frequency of the A string when in tune is 110Hz.

What you are hearing is actually 120Hz which is the second harmonic of the 60Hz power frequency. It would be hard for you to distinguish between 110 an 120.

Try this test: Bring something that produces a reasonable magnetic field such as a wall wart power adapter that is powered near your pickup... Then you will be able to see that you are picking up stray magnetic fields from your environment.

Humbucker pickups attempt to quash such pickup by winding the pickup so stray magnetic fields cancel in adjacent coils.

Some pickup CAN occur on your cord and also in an amp.

If you leave your cable unplugged from teh guitar you are LIKELY to pick up some of this hum... The second harmonic pickup is COMMON when devces like full wave rectifiers are driven by transformers in the area.

SOURCE: I have Ibanez gsr200 bass guitar , yesterday and

No question what to do... take it in under warranty since it is new !!!

You may find that there is a problem with your amp... the seller should be able to test the guitar and demonstrate normal sound for you.

Many users have TOO small of an amp and the distortions make it appear that the guitar is bad... I suspect you will want at least a 12 inch speaker and preferably a 15 inch for your bass.

When low frequency signals drive a speaker too hard it drives the voicecoil out of the linear range and the sound will be irregular..

I plugged in ibanez sdgr 5 string bass into a peavey 300 monitor and now the guitar wont work.. can somebody tell me what happened and how to fix it?


I'm pretty sure that model has active - battery powered - pickups, and yours is flat, so no output at all. The battery would be under the smaller cover plate on the back

Ibanez Pre amp problem


It sounds like the guitar pickup may be faulty. It may be a loose connection on the which could be soldered easily or it may be damaged in some other way.

As this is isolated with your G string, I suspect the individual pickup unit is at fault.

My s5470 ibanez has a lower output in the two out a phase positions. is this normal or should volume level be the same regardless of toggle position. Thank you Arnold


Volume levels change depending on the settings... Also the harmonic content changes so the "apparent" volume will seem different. Find somebody else with the same unit and compare them side by side. Also the type of strings MAY change the sound.

I have a grounding problem with my new Ibanez GSRM20 bass. I don't have an amp, and run the bass directly into a recorder (home studio) and headphones. There is a hum that disappears when I touch...


You need to ground the recorder. Use a WYE connector to get access to the barrel of the guitar cable and find a good ground on a three wire cord wall receptacle. You don't say what model recorder you have which would have been helpful to us. We are surrounded by electric and magnetic fields and typically you can pick up 10 volts AC (with no real current) just as an antenna from the building wiring. Many music devices that run on "wall wart" power adapters have this problem. Also keep guitar away from wall warts as they emit strong magnetic fields for those that use conventional transformers.

I recently broke the E string on my Ibanez 5 string bass and replaced it with a 100 guage one. The sound level is now very low, lower than both adjacent strings. I have tried lowering the bridge, but this ...


Replace it with the same size as the original and the original type. The 100 sounds right for the E. Make sure it is the SAME type string as there are non magnetic for some guitars and if you have magnetic pickups the bronze types won't work. There are also round wound, flat wound and some are flattened on one side. You need to make sure the replacement is exact type. Take sample of old to show store clerk.

High action even though neck is straight. I have also messed with the bridge saddles and not much has changed except it gives fret buzz when i lower the saddles just a little bit. Is high action a common...


Sounds like you need to get it intonated. Take it to your local guitar shop tell them your problem and where you'd like your strings to sit or that straight neck of yours won't be like that for long.
