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: LP epiphone 100 "g" string problem,

well, i have this guitar, for me if i bent the string it would pop off the nut, but it went out of tune on me also becuase of the tuners. so i suggest checking the nut to make sure the string sits completely flush in there, and than also just upgrading your tuners if you can and it will be fine. but deffinately upgrading your tuners would stop that hopefully but still could be something with the nut becuase i had both. tuners = machine heads

A new type of peg that makes it easier to change strings!

Either that or most guitar shops stock string pegs, Just ask at the counter .. .If they don't have them and can't get any in then they are not a real guitar shop in my opinion

SOURCE: Roland GK-2A pickup. g string does not respond

I have the same problem. Only the 1st, 3rd and 5th strings respond. This is not a sensitivity adjustment. The unit does not see the strings. I called Roland and was able to purchase just the pickup itself rather that the entire GK-3. The pickup was about $35 but took 4 weeks to arrive. When it finally got here I was excited. It was not difficult to remove the old and replace it with the new. I plugged it in. NOTHING CHANGED! I believe and hope it ti the 13-pin cable. I have read where these cables are just poorly made and many users have spent a considerable sum on the cable, most recommending having one in reserve always as they are sure to go out.

How change strings gibson guitar?


One of the best was to keeping your guitar in tune, is to also string it correctly and use new strings . Make sure the first winding of a new string around the tuner post goes over the exposed tip of the new string. The rest of the windings go under the exposed tip of the string. This will keep the string clamped firmly in place. Use 4-5 turns around the post for unwound strings, 2-3 for wound strings, in a downward spiral towards the bottom of the post as shown in the photo.-Tom, 30yr player.

How to string an electric guitar


I'm writing this tutorial to help new guitarists string their electric guitars.<br /><br />The first step is to purchase some strings from your nearest music store, depending on the type of music you want to play the string gage will be different. If you want to play heavier music such as metal then I suggest using a heavier gage of string. If you want to play calmer music such as indie, or maybe soft rock I suggest a lighter gage.<br /><br />Next make sure and remove <span style="font-weight: bold;">ALL</span> existing strings. The best way to take off the old strings is to simply loosen them up then cut them right in the middle with wire cutters. Then just pull the left end through the tuning knobs, and the right end through the back of the guitar (Note where the strings come out of the back).<br /><br />After you have removed all the strings its time to put on the new ones. Start with the string closest to the top of the guitar. On your string package you can reference by color which string is which. Find your string then run the sharp end through the back of the guitar in the hole relative to the string you are putting in (These holes in the back are the same holes the old strings came out of). Run the string all the way through so that it is pulled tightly into the back. Now place the sharp end of the string through its relative tuning knob at the top of the guitar. You should pull enough through so that when you pull the string up off the neck there is a gap of about one foot. Now turn the tuning knob clockwise until the string is relatively tight against the neck and it has wrapped around the knob 3-5 times. Now cut the excess string that is coming out of the tuning knob but leave about 1 inch in case you want to lower the tuning. <br /><br />Do the same thing for all your strings, then tune them with either a digital tuner or by ear if you can. You can purchase a cheap digital tuner for around $20 at your nearest music store.<br /><br />Enjoy!!

Have your mom or dad take you and guitar to the music store you are buying your strings from and they will show because they will want you to buy your strings from them. If you have the strings already, go to www.youtube.com and search for "replace guitar strings"

Gretsch G5120 strings go severely sharp on open D chord


Are you, by any chance, pushing the strings a little too hard? You may be unaware of it, but some people who are used to playing power or bar chords, tend to push too hard in first position. On an electric guitar, this can cause the unwanted sharping. Plus, if you're more attuned to playing acoustic guitar, this can sometimes happen as well. I don't know if this is the problem, since I've never seen you play, but you might want to check it out.

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.

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..

If your strings are old try replacing them, or cleaning them. You can clean them by boiling them or soaking them in denatured alchahol.

Apr 19, 2010 | Line 6 Variax 700 6 String Modeling Guitar...

1 Answer

Have Line 6 Variax 700 6 String Modeling Guitar and the "A" String has a buzzing/humming coming thru the amp. This is in all model positions and alternative tuning positions as well. Have tried changing...


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.
