Weed trimmers typically do not have an adjustment for this procedure.

The neck of my guitar is not straight but i alreadyadjusted the trusrod


Edgar,
How are you determining that the neck is not straight? If you are thinking the neck is not straight because the strings are at different heights along the neck, the problem may be neck tilt or saddle and/or bridge height. You can raise or lower the bridge system or string saddles to add or subtract string height along the neck. In addition, neck tilt (particularly easy to adjust on bolt-on necks) refers to the angle that the guitar neck exits the neck pocket on the guitar body. This also effects string height.
Conversly, if you see a distict bow or bend in the neck when you look down the top edge of the neck, the truss rod may indeed be involved. Generally, most players like a little bit of "relief" in the neck. That is to say, a little bit of a concave bow. I prefer a relatively straight neck with very little relief. Just preference.
However, you mentioned you already adjusted the truss rod. Make sure the truss rod is functional. If you loosen the bolt or hex on the truss rod and the concave bow on the neck gets more pronounced, it is likely that you truss rod is ok. If you make adjustments on the bolt and there is little or no change on the neck relief, it is possible that your truss rod is not functioning or is broken. It is very possible to break a truss rod by over tightening but it would take some real effort to do. Still, it is possible.
Check out those points and see if it helps.
Confirm truss rod is working.
Check bridge height and saddle height.
See if adjusting neck tilt is possible on your model guitar.
Good luck.

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.

Nashville tele that has the g string sounds off when playing


if you have the adjustable bridge try moving it back a little bit. the g string is a heavy string and will tend to go sharp when you have the string height up a little. make small adjustments usually only one turn or half a turn at a time. take care to note your adjustments so you can always go back to where you started. turners are nice but the ear doesn't lie. if it sounds right it's right

Ive got a dean vedetta guitar with floyd rose pickup... every time i tune it, it goes off in a while... also my string levels are very high which makes it difficult to play... i dont have much knowledge...


Some tuners have a weird mode that one presses the button once and the tuner will pass the audio until it times out, then tuner and audio stop. Two presses kills audio while tuner works for a time period and then goes dead. A third press enables audio to pass for normal playing. These are confusing compared to other type built in tuners. If you have one of these read the CONFUSING instructions carefully...

There is a noticeable ringing sound only when I strum any note on the E string , any other string sounds fine.


If the ringing only occurs with a specific range of notes it may be something rattling in the amp loose or speaker enclosure.
It could also be feedback occurring at certain frequencies - does the ringing stop if you turn the volume down a bit or stand in a different position in relation to the amp?
Could be a problem with your guitar? Maybe the pick up height needs adjusting in relation to the E string or is it the string buzzing against a fret - indicating a need for adjusting the bridge height or trussrod settings?

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.

Well i can never get a clean sound out of my BC RICH Warbeast NJ Deluxe, i'm assuming it's the bridge but i don't know how to stop it. The buzz gets into every tone i play, need ways to fix this issue,...


The Warbeast is notorious for having buzz problems, and the major cause is usually the bridge. What you can do is:

Standard B.C. Rich String-through bridge - There are two posts, one on either side, that are slotted for a flat-head screwdriver. It is NOT recommended that you try to adjust this with strings on the guitar! Turn the posts counter-clockwise to raise the bridge height. Be sure to turn them the same amount, to keep the string height in relation to each other the same.

Floyd Rose Licensed Tremolo - You will have to adjust the springs behind the tremolo to bring the bridge up slightly above level. You have to have the strings on the guitar to do this To do this, remove the spring cover on the back of the guitar. A phillips-head screwdriver is needed. There should be two screws, one at each end of the spring keeper. Turn them counter clockwise by 1/4 turn each time, following these steps:
1. Turn a single 1/4 turn
2. Tune the guitar.
3. Check for buzz.
If the buzz is still present, repeat steps 1 - 3.


I could not find any other bridge that came with this guitar, so one of these two options should help.

Bear polar recurve brace height


String length is 60 inches. The brace should be 7.5 to 8 inches. Listen for noise and feel for hand shock. Twist the string to add brace. Shoot for the sweet spot. When the bow becomes quiet and the vibration and hand shock is minimal, you have found the sweet spot. Measure your brace height at this point and write it down.
