"I did replace the Cleartone strings this evening, and the EJ16's (sameare much more comfortable. Tone sounds better too, but it's a bit early to say how it will turn out.
I was confused at first when I took off the old strings, because…"
"FYI, Paul and others: I've been playing this on and off, and the action felt difficult, as if the factory Cleartone strings were stiff or something. I rechecked the action, which was fine. I adjusted a couple of nut slots very slightly, but the…"
"Another new special is http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DTWG6V8/, an Entourage Grand with a couple of accessories. The description says acoustic-electric, but I'm not sure I believe that. CamelCamelCamel shows it went as low as $219 a few…"
"I did pay about $11 for shipping, instead of taking the free shipping. I was a little worried about it sitting around in a hot truck over the weekend, or it going by some lower-cost carrier. My impression is that the commencement of free shipping is…"
"I ordered one on Monday and it arrived today. The fit and finish are really very nice. It's pretty much perfectly set up out of the box: low E 6/64", high E 5.5/64", nut slots just right, relief just right. The fret ends are very…"
"Can you slide a piece of paper under the edge of the bridge somewhere? The bridge might be coming loose.
It might also be the pickup itself underneath: the wires, etc. As has also been suggested, try reseating the strings and make the sure ball ends…"
"I have used the Caliber brand, which are about $20 apiece on Amazon, sold mostly by cigar stores. They are compact and have a convenient magnet mount. I have two and they differ by about 5%. I have not tried to calibrate them. I'm thinking of…"
"Yup, that's what happened to me. I rounded the edges of the heel, unfortunately. I also found it difficult to do the sanding evenly. I unbolted and rebolted it a dozen times to check the action. Once I took it off the body, I was able to…"
"A neck reset is usually not due to something changing about the neck or the neck joint. It is due to the body folding up slightly over time. There are a number of threads describing this over on AGF:
"(As a beginner) I have been using a strap occasionally when practicing, both standing and sitting. It improves my posture, preventing me from hunching over the guitar to look at the fretboard. Sometimes I feel like I want to raise the neck a bit,…"
"What is the string spacing at the saddle on your 1.8"s vs 1.72's? For instance, what's the distance from the center of the first bridge pin to the center of the last pin, or the center of E to e?
My 20-year-old 1.8 Seagull is…"
"Hi Tony, the reason I said the string spacing is 1.5" is that I've replaced the nut on my old Seagull with a Tusq PQ-1801. The manufacturer (Graphtech) told me that this is the OEM nut they supply to Godin. That nut is spec'd at…"
"When you say it didn't feel right, was that on the fretting hand or the picking hand, or both?
Despite being slightly wider, the 1.8" nuts on Seagulls have the same string spacing as the 1.75" nut Taylors. The spacing is 1.5" E…"
