The problem is commonly caused by swelling of the wood at the heel, and the truss rod adjustment will often not help for this.
You may need to raise the bridge action, or have a professional luthier correct the probelm by filling the frets to fall away towards the body.
If you take it to a pro, he'll be able to explain all of this to you. You can also visit my web site at:

for tips and explanations on neck set up and truss rod adjustments (go to the "guitar tips" section).

Good luck,

Buying my first guitar

I'm looking to buy a new acoustice guitar that will cost under $200. What is a good guitar to learn on in this price range?

Re: Buying my first guitar

: I'm looking to buy a new acoustice guitar that will cost under $200. What is a good guitar to learn on in this price range?

Re: Buying my first guitar

I'd go with the AXL AG-700. Good quality woods and construction. It's around $170.00 at: www.listenagainmusic.com so you'll have enough left for a case. The case is important because if an acoustic sits out, when the weather changes it absorbs humidity/dries out too rapidly and can crack.

amp

i need a good but cheap amp

Re: amp

Get a Pod 2.0, then plug it into ANY or PA for great tone. Has built in effects and all. Great for recording too. Most professional guitarist use them at least some for recording. Even cheaper is the Johnson J Station. Not bad.

Blueshawk P 90 Pickup configuration

The original configuration of my Gibson Blues Hawk is two P-90's and a noise cancelling dummy coil without magnets in the middle wich is used in series when only one pick up is selected. The middle position of the pick up selector is just the two normal P-90's in series. Will I loose output in the one P-90 + dummy-coil positions if I connect them in parallel?

Guitar with floyd goes out of tune!

ok, I wrote a long post and accidentally hit the "reset" button, so i'm gonna make this short. I have a BC Rich assassin with a floyd rose locking sysetm. It goes way out of tune even if i lightly tap the bridge or lightly bend notes. Ive ajusted a lot things on the guitar (trussrod, screws in back, bridge height...) but I cant find the source of my problem. Can someone please shed some light on my dilema? (I'd prefer that you email me at cironick@mac.com because i probably wont check back here) thanks.

Re: Guitar with floyd goes out of tune!

It may be that your strings are slipping throught the locking nut, or the post or edges on the trem are blunted and not sharp. The locking nut itself is not tight to the neck. Or it's Floyde Rose "liscenced" trem. Which is a cheap knock off and because the metal it's made of is lower quality, it just wont zero out EVERY time. If you can get hold of another Floyde to borrow, put it on your guitar and see if it does the same thing.

Old Dual Rctifier

Can anyone give me an estimate of what this dual rectifier is worth and exactly how old it is. It has the normal Diamond plate on the front but under it all the dual rectifiers i've seen have a Black Faceplate with chrome knobs and red power light. This one has a Chrome Face plate with Black knobs and a blue power light.

Local radio station interferance

I plug my amplifier into a Furman power conditioner which is plugged into my wall socket. I use a planet waves 20ft. cable to plug my guitar into my amp. When I turn down the guitar pickup volume controlls to zero,
a local radio station comes through my amp. What can I do to stop this station from coming through my amp?

Re: Local radio station interferance

Check all the grounding/shielding first and try to isolate where thr RFI is 'entering'... there are alot of ways to fix the problem depending on the source, the simplist is identifying the source then using using caps to shunt the RFI to ground, using balanced cables, a TI box... etc.

Thanks

Amp Head Wattage? Is 90 watt's enough?

Hey,
I have differant opinions alot of people say that amps under and around 100 watt's just arn't loud enough. I have just a 100 watt combo amp with one 12" speaker and another 12" cab. I think that's plenty loud I just am not happy with the tone so I am looking for a nice half stack. I know alt of amps with high wattage won't really give you tone inless you crank it. I am thinking that the low wattage might help with keeping the tone at lower volume(it's a solid state head). Anyways any and all opinions would help.. Thanx!!!!

Re: Amp Head Wattage? Is 90 watt's enough?

Some ideas for lower wattage amps with good tone (and reasonable prices):
-Fender PJ
-Carr slant6v
-DR Z
-Traynor YGM-3

Try a Vox Valvetronix

I sold my Carvin 100watt tube Vai Legacy, which had to be cranked, to buy a Vox Valvetronix. I LOVE the Vox. It has a switch on the back that switches the 2x12 combo from 1 watt, 15 watt, 30 watt, and 60 watts, all true stereo. And there ARE tubes in the power amp section, as well as all the "nice" effects you could want. And BUILT IN stomp boxes. And it cranks. It will also power a 4x12 8ohm cab, or even 2. Definatly check them out.

Re: Try a Vox Valvetronix

I have also added a Valvetronix to my amps , I love it very responsive. By teh way , do you have son of you favorites user settings or do you know of a group that is exchanging setting sfor the Valvetronix?

Re: Try a Vox Valvetronix

I concur. I just got myself the 1x12 Valvetronix, and it rocks. It probably the most versatile amp I've ever played on, and the tones are incredible. To say this is just an amp is a gross understatement. It is so much more!
