Just use as if you are doing a 6 string ( instructions in the pack ) only play one string in each group at a time. The thinner string in a pair should be exactly one octave higher than the thicker string. Strings of the same thickness are in unison ( sound the same pitch )

HOW DO I TUNE A KRAMER GUITAR


Without seeing your guitar, I'm going to assume the "tightening lugs" you're reffering to are the string locks on the nut. On a guitar with a "floyd rose" style tremolo system, the strings pass through a clamping system at the nut before going to the normal tuning keys. This clamping system "lugs" must be loosened then the guitar is tuned as it normally would, then the lugs are tightened to lock the strings in place. These clamps are not part of the tuning mechanism, but instead lock down the strings after they have been tuned by the keys. After all that, one would fine tune the guitar at the bridge rather than at the keys. A more complete explaination is found here-

How to tune 12 string acoustic with ga40


Unfortunately, the manual on
http://www.korg.com/us/products/tuners/ga_40/

indicates that 12 string is not supported.

The owners manual can be downloaded at
http://i.korg.com/uploads/Support/GA40_EFG1_633661472559800000.pdf

The YouTube tutorial is at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Of4CRajvq0E

with a 12 string, you can often tune the octave until the tuner sees the matching note. It won't see the correct string number, but an A note is an A note, whether or not it's an octave higher.

Hope that this helps.

Tuner Won't Acknowledge Sound


Before turning the unit on, press the calib/batt button to check the battery condition.
The Fender AG6 only responds when the strings pitch is within a certain frequency range. If the guitars tuning is not within that range or if your installing new strings, first connect the guitar to the AG6 with a cord that you know to be in good working condition and turn the AG6 on. Then starting with the low E string (the thickest one), loosen the tuning peg to a point well below the standard tuning for that string. Then slowly tighten the peg as you strike the string repeatedly. When the strings frequency, comes within range you will see the 6E light glow and the needle will begin to deflect. When the needle reaches zero it is in tune. Do the remainder of the strings the same way then go back and recheck each a second time. If you have a tuning fork, you can use it to tune by ear then re-tune and maintain it with the AG6
Remember to always stretch then re-tune new strings several times.
If the AG6 does not respond even after checking the condition of the battery and the cord that connects the guitar to the tuner, the problem could be inside the AG6 with a bad connection on the board. Try moving the cord as you strike a string that you know is close to being in tune. Again a tuning fork would be helpful.

The D string on my new J-45 standard sounds unmusical , as if there are no rich overtones . I can tune the string with my electronic tuner but it never sounds musical. I think it has Gibson Premium...


Hi. Your guitar may not be intonated properly. You might want to try to level and balance the height and strings all throughout the neck. The level at the rear half (close to the soundhole) can be slightly higher than the front half (near the headstock). This can be done be adjusting the truss rod, nut and/or saddle.
Note: You may want to get a guitar luthier to do the trussrod, nut and saddle adjustments as these are very delicate procedures.

How can I tune mas bass guitar to A=444hz with a KORG GA-40 ???


You turn it on and there are the two buttons under the power on button. These ratchet the base frequency up and down. In the upper left corner of the display you will see what A is currently tuned to in tiny characters.

Is he tuner supposed to light up green when the string is correctly tuned?


Before turning the unit on, press and hold down the calib/batt switch to check the condition of the battery on the battery meter.

Then either plug in your electric guitar to the input side of the AG-6 or if tuning an acoustic guitar without electronics placing the AG-6 near the front of the guitar should work. You will not need to press a button to select which string you are about to tune. The AG-6 will detect it and the corresponding light will turn on when it is tuned within range.

Turn on the AG-6 and start by striking the low E (thickest) string while open. This is the number 6 string or 6E. Slowly turn the guitars low E tuning key untill the red LED below the 6E marking on the AG-6 lights up. Continue stricking the open string and turning the key untill the needle centers on zero and the 6E light remains on.

Repeat this for the open A string untill the 5A light turns on and the needle centers on zero.

Repeat for the remaining four strings, 4D 3G 2B and 1E, being careful not to over tighten and break them.

Tip: It may be a good idea once the low E string is tuned, to tune the rest manually, especially new strings or strings way out of tune. Then tune again using the AG-6 tuner.
.
If installing fresh strings you will probably need to stretch each string and re-tune, possibly several times, before they hold their tuning.

Need tuning button for a 1958 Giannini Craviola 12 string steel guitar and a new pick guard


Two websites that you can get almost any part you might need:

Warmoth

If you don't want to wait for shipping, your local music store can have them ordered, but they'll most likely be ordering from one of these two sites.

Hope that helps!

How do I change the strings on my Dean Vendetta


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..

Guitar strings on a mandolin.


Looking at your desired notes the mandolin is standard tuned to gdae.
So three of the four notes are already available, just put the "d" mando strings where the "g" ones would go and the "g" ones where the "D" ones would go the highest is already a "e" and I am sure the "a" would tune up to a "B" with little risk.
You can also
look at string sets made for the madochello or possbly octave mandolin.

Good luck,

The dude.
