Question about Fender CD140sce Acoustic Electric Guitar

1 Answer

I am re-stringing my Fender 140sce and every time I begin to tune a new string up, the peg pops up. Do I keep pressure on it to try and keep it in place until it is fully in tune, or is this out of the ordinary?

It is a little tricky, but you have to kind of pre-form the ball end of the string so it tucks under the ledge of the hole it goes into. Then put peg in and as you do pull up on the string slightly so the pre-formed ball end is caught under the ledge. Make sure the slot is toward the neck direction and the string seats in it, Also once the string is seated, kind of preform the string over the edge of the hole as the string is started to be tightened.

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.

Guitar tuning peg seems like it might be broken it will tighten the string to a certain point then it clicks and its completely loose again...I'm new to guitar so I don't know If this is normal


It seems like you wound and tightened your string on the tuning peg loosley. Try wounding the string at least 4-5 times around the peg after you pass the wire though it and then after winding pass it through the hole again. Tighten well.
If that doesn't work your peg might be broken, but looking at it on the video seems that it's not, even though you can't see it clearly.
Try tightening the screws on the peg, since there's a lot of tension on the highest string and it might cause the peg to click back because the tension is too high and it's loose.

What is the proper way to change a string on a guitar so it doesn't slip?


The first thing to remember is that the strings will stretch so i always over tune it about a turn for small strings and 3 for the big strings. To prevent it from slipping when you are tightening the string pull it tight while turning it and make sure the string has overlapped its self a couple times before releasing it.

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

Check the neck to body attachment. There may be a problem there, especially if it has been strained in the past. The fact that the strings were so high when you got this would indicate there MAY be a problem with the neck attachment or the body where it attaches. Word of caution: Investigate how repairs are done on the instrument before attempting a fix. Using wrong materials can permanently disable an instrument. Banjos DO go out of tune easily, depending on how they are played. Another thing to remember is that strings are within about 10% of breaking when in tune on stringed instruments.

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..

I just got this guitar. I pull the tuner control, strum the string and after the guitar tune itself, the G string still out of tune??


Are you sure you are struming the G string at the right point? One might be able to fool the tuner by triggering a harmonic on the strings or being too aggressive in the strum.

I would pull the peg and see if the string CAN be tuned manually. It is possible the G string is bad or somebody put the wrong string on there.

Remember that strings can be within about 10% of the breaking tension when in tune.

Also it appears that the thing can detune itself to nearby keys. Make sure you have the dial set correct when you pull it out to tune.

I have an Ibanez Art 100 and I am having trouble tuning the G string. It seems to sound sour and either a little flat or sharp.


Trace the string from the body to the tuning peg, making sure that there isn't anything rubbing and that the string is routed properly. Compare it's routing to your other strings. When you get to the tuning peg, note how many tines the string goes around the peg. It should go around at least three times (more is better, to a point), and wrap above and below the tail of the string to friction lock it to the peg. If it isn't locked in, the string will loosen itself over a period of time, making it impossible to keep it tuned.
Hope this helps! Regards, --W/D--
