SOURCE: When I lower the bridge of my ibanez grg170dxbkn

if its your truss rod this is how u adjust it. remove the 3 screws on the plastic piece directly behind the nut bridge. rotate the allen head a qtr of a turn to the right NO MORE THAN A QTR TURN!!!!. let set for preferably 48 hrs (24 would be ok if no more adjusting is required) to allow the neck time to adjust. repeat if necessary.... any more than a qtr turn could cause the neck to twist or crack. have patience after each turn and let it set!!!

SOURCE: The 'b' string on my DXMG is higher at the bridge

Hi, problem can be solved.You will need an Allen key. See picture below:

There is a space where the Allen can fit in on the bridge of the guitar. Allen key comes in a set like the above, Take the Allen key and fix it in string B area, find the exact one that will fit in and turn ant-clock wise,it will reduce it in few seconds.

Hope it helped.

Have a nice day...

LIKELY the problem requires a truss rod adjustment. Best to take this in to a guitar shop for setup as one can do damage. The rod controls the "bend" of the neck of the guitar to set up string to fret clearance.

I have a 2015 Gibson LPM with the zero fret nut. I have replaced the brass zero fret nut with the replacement that Gibson sent me. My problem is with the G string not intonating. Other strings r fine.


It's possible the fretboard radius and bridge radius doesn't match so that the zero fret isn't making enough contact. It may be possible to recut either the nut slot or the saddle to get it all to work. Find a good repairman, not a guitar cener guy, or if it was bought new, send it back to Gibson under warranty.

Guitar string buzz


What you need is a complete set up as your truss rod is out of adjustment and bridge is too low. Your local guitar shop can help you out for around $50.

How do I slip a shiv between neck and body to raise action


Might want to rethink that....to raise the action is to have the strings higher off the fretboard....if you shim the neck in relation to the body, you'll actually lower the action. To raise the action you need to raise the height of your bridge/saddles. If you want to lower the action and the bridge/saddles are as low as they can go you could remove the neck and insert some card - might have to do some trial and error but to my mind...to shim enough to significantly lower the action, would take a thick shim and you might not get a good tight fit between neck and body. You might actually need a truss rod adjustment - not an amateur adjustment.

HELLO AND THANK YOU.... I LOVE MY 335...... BUT SOMETIMES ESPECIALLY WHEN PLAYING DOUBLESTOPS......THERE IS A RATTLEY, SPRINGY SOUND THAT ALMOST SOUNDS LIKE DISTORTION.... IRS NOT FRET...


Make sure amp sound is not hitting front of guitar straight on. Get a 2nd pair of hands and while you do a test strum have the other person use hand or hands and apply pressure to various places on the body(such as the bridge, headstock, sides, etc and see if any of those affect the sound. Very light strings are sometimes a problem.

How to lower the action on a les paul safely


The bridge should be on two posts, both of them with knurling on the edge. These screw into the body of the guitar, allowing you to raise or lower the action of the strings. Turn them clockwise to lower the action, making sure to turn them the same amount, so as to keep the strings even. You WILL have to re-adjust intonation after this.

Hope that helps!

Gibson Les Paul wont stay in tune


That's the problem; you're using light gauge guitar strings. Chances are that if you are not used to playing strings that light, you're fretting hand will hit the strings with more force than is neccesary to fret them, thereby forcing them out of tune. You can solve this problem by adding more winds around the string post (three or more winds should do it), or you can switch to a heavier gauge of string.

If they're true locking tuners, they should have a notch on the back of the gear housing that you turn with a nickel to engage the locking mechanism once tuning has been established.

Also; check the intonation of the guitar itself on an electronic tuner. If it tunes right but sounds out of tune when played, this is an intonation issue, and can be solved by adjusting a small set screw that moves the individual saddle back and forth in the tune-o-matic style bridge. You can check this by tuning the string to the correct note, then playing the same string at the 12th fret and checking it against your tuner. If it rings in true, you're fine, if it comes up flat or sharp, every note on the fretboard is going to be off by that much, and you'll have to adjust accordingly (turn the screw to the right to add length and lower a sharp note, turn the screw to the left to subtract length and raise a flat note, if I remember right).

Hope that helps.
