Guitar Repair - Small damage near the bridge.

I lightly banged the front of the guitar against the edge of the desk. Now I have a small circular ding in the front of the guitar near the bridge. Is there any way to repair a ding like this?

There are a couple of fixes available depending on the type of finish that you have. To make it look like it never happened it would be between $85 and $120 at a quality repair shop. It would be a lot less if you just wanted to prevent it from spreading and do a simple touch-up. Hope this helps.

I've had 50-50 luck with steaming dings using a thin cloth folded over a couple times and an iron. Sometimes it works magically, other times it doesn't do much.

Good luck.

Our guitar is about 20 years old. The bridge appears to have moved and as a result the strings are sitting on the frets. The bridge is held in place by two screws (allen key needed) but no matter how we...


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.

How do I lower my strings closer to the fretboard


There are a few different ways to do this, and unfortunately if you have not done this kind of work before you could end up damaging the guitar more than fixing it.
A few things to look for:
Sight down the neck from the top of the guitar looking down along the edges. If you see a concave (banana shaped) bow in the neck, it needs adjustment. Almost all guitars including yours have a neck adjustment rod that can alleviate some of the bow. If however the neck is convex ( higher in the middle) the neck would need adjustment too. You want a very slight bow in the neck to allow for weather changes as wood expands and contracts with the weather.
Other adjustments are down on the bridge. There are usually very small allen or hex key adjustments for each string to raise and lower the action (height) of the string. Again, any adjustments here can also affect the tuning of the string up and down the neck (intonation). The guitar may not end up being tuned at one place one the neck while in tune on another.
I would highly recommend taking this to a music store with a qualified person to adjust it. Many times the action can be lowered and the string height adjusted for better playing ability. You can inform the technician now what you see and what you want done. Also let them know if you have a heavy or light touch on the strings as this can make a difference when they adjust it too. At the same time a lot of them also restring your guitar for you and you may request a lighter gauge of string allowing for better play too. Good luck.

Output jack


Have you tried another cable between amp and guitar? Usually the cable goes bad first. Have you tried another amp or possibly tried another guitar on your rig? If this still indicates that your guitar's Standard 1/4" TS Jack is noisy, remove the oval cover over the jack and check the solder joints for the wiring. Follow the wires back to the tone and volume pots and check those solder joints. If everything is secure...Plug in, power up and check for noise while turning the volume pots stop to stop. If the pots make a scratching noise, shut down rig and unplug the guitar. Get a can of spray contact cleaner with a small extension tube (available at electronic shops) to spray in the pots while turning them. (May have to remove pots fom the guitar to get at small openings on side of pot can.) Spray jack and test for noise. Jack STILL
noisy...If you can solder...unwire old jack, remove from guitar, take to electronic shop, match to Standard 1/4" TS Jack, install in guitar, resolder wire connections and test. If you cannot solder...take guitar to
a reputable shop or dealer that does this repair. Good Luck! P.S. The
spray contact cleaner can be used on the amp jack, pots and switches
too...just make sure the amp is unplugged from the power supply before
doing any spraying.

My Dean bass' strings rattle when i play and i hate it. It says i need to tighten the bolt in the neck but i don't know what to use to tighten it.


These often use a special Allen wrench. It is easy to damage the neck.

I would recommend taking it to a guitar place/shop and have them evaluate that the neck is the problem. There are other problems such as the bridge that can cause this.

Schecter Hellraiser C-1 question


Hi,

Yes, you can install a Floyd Rose later, but it will cost you more to buy one later and install than if you were to purchase the Schecter with it already installed. A Floyd Rose bridge with trem can cost between $40.00 for a used one, to $80.00, or even higher, depending on the features you want. If you need it installed for you, you are looking at another $50.00 to $100.00 potentially.

If you are unable to purchase the one without the Floyd Rose bridge because the cost is a bit out of your reach, don't worry. Schecter C-1 guitars are well made and sound very nice, and you would still have a really nice guitar. I have owned two Schecters , and still kick myself for having sold them to "upgrade" to a Gibson Les Paul Standard. Just because it reads Gibson on the headstock, doesn't necessarily mean it's a better guitar. To prove that, check out reviews on Harmony Central sometime (www.harmony-central.com) and see how many people are displeased with their Gibsons, and how many are pleased with their Schecters.

But you don't have to worry about installation of a FL bridge later, as they fit exactly where the standard bridge and stop tailpiece are fitted.

I hope this helps.

Ibanez intonation problem


Hi there. Use guitar tuner. Pluck string in open position. Tune. Now pluck same string at 12th fret. If tuner says flat, adjust bridge for that string towards neck. Towards bridge if sharp. Repeat procedure until in tune at open and 12th fret. Go to next string and repeat procedure.
Thanks

How do i repair my B.C. Rich guitar??


Guitar manufacturers use generally one of two different knob types: (1) knob has a small set screw of some type holding it on or (2) press fit onto the shaft of the tuneing pot (volume knob in your case).
Now, the problem is if it is NOT a set screw type, it is press fit. You see press fit used most of the time on lower-end instruments (and a few high end). The BEST way to get a stuck volume know off is to get a shoe string, loop part of it under the knob, brace the guitar firmly and PULL SLOWLY WITH FORCE. Realize that it is possible to damage the guitar if you **** on the string too hard.
I have never seen where a stuck know did not come off (or hear of someone breaking their guitar doing it).
I have also resorted to using a small screwdriver: work it way under the know and gently twist it to loosen it so it can be pulled off with a string or your hands.
Be carefull not to scratch your guitar!
Good luck,
-mike

Minimal to no bridge


Sounds like you have some microphonic pickups. Only thing to do is replace them. This would be caused by the guitar being hit against something or being dropped.
