I also have a yamaki - the company went out of business in the late 70's due to some sort of corp. fight with yamaha. They are really great guitars.
Mine has a solid cedar top and is a Martin D-18 knock-off. Sounds great, hope you like yours as well

Re: help this is dirving me nuts

Maybe it's time for new springs ?? try just tightening them some and see if it helps.

Re: help this is dirving me nuts

maybe you could adjust the intonation. the pull from the strings has to be equal to the pull of the springs... have you tried tuning flat a half step?

joe and jeff apparently have their heads up their respective asses.....

It really sounds like the "knife edges" have dulled or the corresponding fulcrum point on the posts have worn. This can cause the exact problem that you have described. These edges have to be sharp to minimize friction and allow the trem to return to the same zero position each and every time. It sounds like yours is binding. Take a close look at the edges on the trem. They should look similar to a knife edge and not rounded or flattened. The corresponding post surfaces should not be worn or rutted. The posts are easily replaced. The knife edges may or may not be replacable depending on design. A quick and dirty fix on the blades could be achieved with a Dremel tool with a fine grinding stone bit. Good luck!

Re: joe and jeff apparently have their heads up their respective asses.....

And after you waste you time on this then check your springs, if this was the problem you would have already noticed it on initial inspection. I've go 3 FR trem guitars and have been using and setting em up for years, this yahoo can't even get rid of a fret buzz on his '50s LP' so I would take this his 'advice' with a grain of salt. Later.

Re: joe and jeff apparently have their heads up their respective asses.....

I have to admit that Gordo has a valid point. (even if he doesn't know the difference between a 50's LP and a box of crackers, his 50's LP has a bolt on neck...whew) I have a Schaller Floyd in my spare parts bin that I removed for the exact reason he described. But I would try adjusting the springs before I did anything drastic like drop 200 bucks on a new trem.

Re: joe and jeff apparently have their heads up their respective asses.....

I agree it is a valid point. and I know the webpage he copied it almost word for word from without credit, but I just assumed that worn 'blades' would be so obvious that the guy woulda noticed it, also the worn ones I've had normally are near impossible to tune/intonate as any picking or resting just your hand on it puts it out of tune, my experince of going outta tune only after using the trem usually means a tension adjustment, also telling me my head is up my ass just assures that all his posts now will get a flame right back from me. He also posts as 'tron' and 'unidefined/known luthier', for some reason when he posts as gordo he goes outta his way to sound/spell like an idiot.

KAHLER OR FLOYD ROSE?

Wich one's better?, i'm thinking on buying a 7 string-trem system, i don't even know if kahler has 7 stringers but i was wondering anyway wich one woulds be better, by the way i have a Ibanez AX7221 7 strings, this model doesn't have any tremolo so if i'd buy one i would modify the guitar, is the Kahler or the Floyd Rose better for my needs????

Re: KAHLER OR FLOYD ROSE?

word on the street is that Kahler is once again out of business

Re: KAHLER OR FLOYD ROSE?

Kahler flat mount is easier to install on a guitar that has no factory trem. I prefer the Floyd though. Kahlers are too bulky and have a rep for being unreliable in tuning stability.

Re: KAHLER OR FLOYD ROSE?

Not true. You can still find their Website at www.kahlerinternational.com . Just thought I'd let'cha know.

guitar noises

when im playing my guitar itll make this really weird noise then i have to tap my chord for a while until it goes away what is that sound from and how do i get rid of it

Re: guitar noises

If you gotta tap the cord it is probally a faulty connection w/the cord jack or guitar/amp input jack (depending on which side you are tapping). Just ohm them out to find out which, or resolder them all, thats where I would start, actually I would start with just trying another cord and see if it goes away.
