floyd rose bridge adjustments

I have and Ibanez RG570, and I just changed to a thicker string guage. Now the action is too high, how do I adjust the bridge to be lower. I have a floyd rose 2 bridge. Thx.

bridge adjustment

i have a fender strat and when i bend the tremola arm down it dosn't bend low enough i went to holiday music and they send i need to adjust the srings at the back in order to make it bend lower. do you know how to adjust the springs to make it bend lower.

Re: floyd rose bridge adjustments

Man, I have the same problem. Same guitar, cept mine's a edge system floyd rose. I don't wether to tighten the truss rod, wether to loosen, how to lower the action... I'm lost.

Re: floyd rose bridge adjustments

My son also has the RG570. Also just had a lesson in string replacement. Don't know the details myself, but apparently you have to restring and tune while using the whammy bar to hold the bridge at the appropriate height. I think there is something about a black mark in the recess for the bridge, used to line up the bridge at the appropriate height.

Stupid beginner, what should I get?

I'm looking for a nice, but not too nice guitar to learn on. I'm going to play crappy music for a local "punk" band. What (Is/are) (some/a) good beginner's electric(s) or maybe a hybrid? Any tips?

thanks,
fuzzy

p.s. please e-mail me if you decide to reply.

Low cost Jazz Guitar

I am guitarist from Zagreb, Croatia. My playing style is
Benson/Ritenour. Im'playing very well, but my style isn't followed by budget. I have about $500 to spend on guitar. I'm in doubt between
Yamaha AEX 500/520 and Epiphone ES335. Please advice me.

looking to buy acoustic guitar; don't know what kind

Hi Brian. I own a Gibson (well Epiphone really) Les Paul electric which I really like, but in truth, I usually play it as if it were an acoustic. I usually play acompaniment, rarely lead (because I'm not any good at it). I rarely use a flatpick; I usually fingerpick or strum with my fingers. I want to get an an acoustic guitar but I know little about them. I want a cutout. I like good action. I play standing up. I don't like the wide neck of classical guitars, but I like nylon strings. And that's what leads me to one of my two questions: 1) Can you tell me about the Yamaha APX-6NA, which they categorize as an Electric Acoustic (as opposed to Electric Classical) Guitar, with Nylon strings. Is it wide-neck like a classical or thin liike a steel-string acoustic? Can you recommend a guitar for me, or help me in my search? Thanks, man.

Re: looking to buy acoustic guitar; don't know what kind

: Hi ? Thanks, man.

strings

hey, i own a fender strat and the top two strings always end up breaking after about about 20 hours of use. and i now play with a .38mm pick and it doesnt help. i've tried all the different types of strings. should i just buy a new guitar?

They make graphite bridge saddles. Once you put them on your string breaking problem will be over. Try it.

Oh, I forgot to add a 38 pick is an abomination. You need about 80 to control things.
