Jera Woden Posted May 25, 2005 Report Share Posted May 25, 2005 i have a $170 dollar ibanez start thats around 6 years old. i really love the feel of this guitar. it has a wide neck (1 3/4) and a wide string base over the pick ups. the stock pickups are giveing me trouble but hey it was cheap. well its time for an up date. i took it out the other day and noticed my action is way high. so i took it to my local shop (i could have done it my self but i wanted to pro touch) to have them check out the truss rod. it was fine but i was getting way too much buzz on the middle frets. i had them adjust the saddles on the one way termolo. well my action was in orbit now. so i put on a very heave gauge string (13-52 ) and that killed the buzz, i redid the saddles my self and got the action to ok but still too high. if i go any lower it wont sound on any fret about 15. so what should i do to get my action perfect? do i put a shim or two under the neck and bolt it back on? this guitar has the single action termolo (i forget what its called) with the string through the base of the term on the back. is there any thing nbon termolo i can convert it too that will allow me to gewt the action back to where it should be? would this axe accept a stop bar and tune o matic? is that even the right way to go? ps its a ibanez gio strat with a few slight finish mods to it. please help me obi wan kenobi your my only hope! lol j/k about old ben Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
