  1. This is what I know, correct me if I'm wrong. I remove all the strings, the tremolo depresses into the body bec it is pulled back due to the springs at the back in the tremolo cavity which have not been removed..right? So then to push the trem back up and make it normal again I place a small wood block on one side, the side which is the spring side, not the other side. I also place a big one on the othe side incase i put really heavy strings and tune the guitar to B, or drop A, so that the bridge doesn't rise or depress? That is it right? Also my guitar has a Piezo ..what should I do
  2. so, i need advice on blocking the floating tremolo on an Ibanez Rg 2020X. What tools would I need? What material, and if I can do this at home and if it is easy? It seems easy, measure cut and place? that's it right? Please help me, I ned to do this badly..I can't order a tremolo no, mainly bec i don't wanna use the trem at all, so the on an off wouldn't help I just want it off.. if there are any tutorials on the site, please don't scold me or ban me,I just couldn't find any, also.. I would need something on making a nut and attaching it..please point me to some links or anything, thanks alot.
  3. I love it, the bands good too, best of luck with the brutalizer stuff.
  4. Yup that helps, adjust the tension AND Retune, that's what I wanted to know, though, How do you retune ? some chap I knew Used to just tune the guitar so fast! Normally when you tighten one string the others loosen ..so I can't see how it can be done fast, that's what i am aslo asking..like anyone know any shortcuts tips etc.. as to retuning..how to do it faster..for eg. if you tune with balance it is better, like I mentioned above, so how else..anyway maybe I am being vey vague..forget it. Thanks.
  5. Since I have a bad hand I can't do unecessary typing, but this is imp..so I will have to do this.. A floating tremolo, needs balance or equal tension when tuning. If you tune the sixth string to E and then you tune the A then the D, it will start to lift from one side and will be difficult to tune and it will take more time to get the trem straight and standard..Now, I learned this trick off an instructional video of Eric Johnson where he tunes the guitar from the centre and then tunes out. He first tunes the G string, centres the bridge and then what I do is tune the D. 2 centre strings tu
  6. 2. What's the guitar? If it looks 'flat', it's probably satin poly, might be oil. Ibanez Rg2020TB... Also I have seen alot of products, cause uptil now it was a piece of cloth only, but i saw this extreme metal polish and then this and then that and there are tons of books on maintenance and tons of things that cna happen to your guitar over the years...thus i was asking, so what about all these products? like extreme metal polish, guitar polish etc..and comparison with lemon oil, I bet there's alot of Info, but anything's fine just want a general idea so that I can use this guitar for
  7. Nothing here related to building, but as a person who plays his guitar.. 1. What can I use to polish/clean the neck every now and then..often I'd say..? 2. I can see that the neck isn't raw wood something has been applied on it, what is it? what kind of finish? 3. I have seen the fret polishing tutorial on the site, and I want to clean all metals on the guitar now and then, while changing strings? 4. What can i use for cleaning and maintaining the body..? 5. Silarly the fretboard wood isn't finished and i want to maintain,take car, of that too.. i took my guitar to a shop nearby and the
  8. can i just glue that extra piece onto the body itself?
  9. http://www.jcguitars.com/jacwar1.JPG Now, I want to add that thing at the end of the board and naturally change the direction of the pickups, but i already know how to do the pickups, more or less. For the end of the board .. How shall i go about producing that and adding it to the fretboard/neck? Also when pickups are slanted does it have any realy effect on tone, kinda like a fanned fretboar where you're going short on the treble and the bass is long, similarly the pickup moves upwards and the bridge pickup will end upfine on the lowest string, but the thinner you get the pickup
  10. So how does the truss rod actually work, For eg. You pick a string, so there's contact and the follow through. what you've oltd me is uptill the stage of contact with the string, now when you follow through a proper/actual nte is produced, similarly, you've told me about it, so the rod acts works how? Also a simple question, backbow is concave and upbow is convex?..when guitar is held vertical body facing you..not the back.. If it's a steel rod how deoes it TIGHTEN?
  11. What is the general shape of a truss rod? IS there only one shape? The truss rod channel in the neck is what shape too? The trsuu rod shape and shape of the channel and the parts of a truss rod, and the turning of the truss rod key.... .anticlockwise and clockwise has an impact on the neck how? clockwise-tighten anticlockwise loosen thus I am guessing clockwise is upward bow. and anticlockwise is bow downwards? I am trying to understand everything about guitars and floyd rose guitars so that I can set up guitars as if they're meant to be played by professionals . ..For my
  12. Anything that is good for Sweeping Arpeggios and tech metal(rythm stuff). Influences - Paul Gilbert, Michael Angelo, Rusty Cooley etc. I don't want to spend much. I just want a Floyd on the guitar a decent amp and a decent pedal or sumthin for a nice tone so atleast i sound nice. I don't wanna play any cover songs. I wanna do this full time, music/tar etc. I plan to jam along with songs and stuff, for the purpose of learning and learning from stuff that influences me. So if I wanna jam to Mother War(Decapitated) and stuff I wanna have a decent sound, prolly a metal tone so i can be hap
