Re: String Gauge change [PLEASE HELP!] :)

If you're used to playing 9's, going to 10's won't be that big a deal. You will have to build up some more strength to bend the strings though. If you are seriously into the big, thick, warm SRV style Blues then you can try 11's. If you aren't and just want some more tone out of your strings stick with the 10's. They are a good gauge (all of my electrics are strung with 10's except for one which has 13's because it is a fretless guitar). You will need to adjust the bridge to accomodate the new gauge of string though and most likely the action as well. Let a trained professional do it. DO NOT attempt to do it yourself unless you know what you are doing, have the proper tools, and have done it successfully before.

STRINGS: Nylon versus Steel

Hello, Which strings are better on Accoustical/Classical Guitars? Nylon or Steel. What are the pros and cons of both? Im a beginner and Id really like to know. Any help or advice will be appreciated.

Re: STRINGS: Nylon versus Steel

It is not a matter of which are better, they are two seperate guitars. They are both acoustic guitars, meaning they rely on the acoustic properties of the wood and the body to project sound as opposed to electronics. Classical guitars have nylon or "cat gut" strings, they produce a soft, mellow tone. The necks on these guitars are generally wider to accomodate the classical playing style. Steel string guitars are definitely more popular. They are louder and more verstile for rhythm, fingerstyle, and solo work, and the necks are not as wide as a classical. I would recommend beginning on a steel-string acoustic. It will be easier to learn rhythm and basic strumming patterns, (have you ever tried to play rhythm guitar on a nylon string....not pretty!) Anyway, just my opinion. I hope this helps.

Please don't put steel strings on a classical guitar! Totally different deal.

Help!!! Need Info

I'm searching for information on the Seville brand of guitars. I have an S-32 model and all I know about it is that it was made in Korea. I love this guitar. It is one of the best sounding classicals I've ever played. I've talked to a few other people that have this kind of guitar, yet I've found no one who knows anything about when they were made or where to find any information about them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fender Strat Tremelo Question

I have recently gone from light to medium strings on my Fender and when I tune the guitar it pulls the tremelo right up so it does not work. I have checked the tuner and it is fine!
What stupidity am I engaged in? Is there a way to increase the tension on the tremelo? I'd like to stay with the heavier guage strings

Re: Fender Strat Tremelo Question

I had the same problem when I used Ernie Ball Heavy Bottom, so I added 2 tension springs to the bridge. Now it's perfectly fine!

Re: Fender Strat Tremelo Question

This happens when you change gauges without adjusting the springs that control the tremolo bridge. The pounds of tension are higher with Medium gauge strings than with Light gauge. You must adjust the springs to the new gauge of string. Let a qualified tech do it for you if you have never done it before. It can be tricky.
