i don't really know what instructions you expected, although you should have received something for the tuner and amp. I suspect that you are new to playing the guitar, as, I don't wish to sound disrespectful, you would know what to do! So first, and again I hope not to sound like I'm treating you like a dummy, plug the guitar into the tuner input. Or if It's a piezo tuner clamp it to your headstock. Most tuners are now automatic so it should pick up on the string you are striking.Repeatedly pluck the same string til the tuner changes colour, or flashes, or some other indication to tell you the string is at pitch. Repeat the above for all 6 strings.
Then plug the cable into the amp input, switch it on, and bugger about with the controls til you get a half decent sound. ( thats what the rest of us do).Don't expext too much from this package, it is budget level, but of quite good overall quality.hope this helps

If I understand your question correctly, the tuner (the little machine that the string winds around so that you can- yep! you guessed it- tune the string.) has come loose/is coming loose from the guitar. Or someone offered to "fix it" and lost a screw.

Either way, you can do one of two things: look on a website called StewMac.com. the Stewart McDonald company has been doing this since 1968, so they'll probably have the part.

If, however, you want a little faster response: Get your guitar and find a music store that's been around awhile- a long while. Go inside, be careful not to knock anything over (because the light will be dim, and there will be stuff stacked and displayed *everywhere*. Walk to the back of the store (past the tatted salesmen and the harassed-looking girl who's answering the phone) to the repair counter. Ask the guy for the screws that you need- he may recommend that a larger size is needed if the hole has been stripped.

Either way, you'll have the hardware you need- probably for about a buck or two.

Keep playing!

Can you forward some photos to me? Serial numbers and Kay guitars vary by the age of the instrument. Also can you take a photo of any label inside the sound hole or at least tell me what it says in there, where was it made, etc. I'll await your response.

Try taking the guitar back to the store where you got it. Recreate the sound. If it is a faulty connection they will know what to do about it.

Dont give up on the neck. One tec you saw may not know what another that has had many years in the repair of gtrs knows !. But for the time being you can fix this your self. Find a alan wrench that came with your Gtr.thats your ntail pice. This is the bridge that each string cross,s over. Now slowly rase up the height of the string untill its high enough to stop the buzzing. Just half turns at a time. . All so if you keep the humitdy up near your gtr. it may correct its self, no **** just like magic. keep on playing DFD

What type yamaha is this and what type problem? The serial no is irrelevant.

Any standard screw in whammy will work they're the same as a stock Fender Strat.
Good luck, Cody J.
