Getting a regular pack of strings is unrealistic for a person like me.
Once I touch strings for one day, the newness is gone by tomorrow.
After a few more days, they're completely dead.

Good (polyphonic) pitch shifter with battery capability

I have a Variax and I love using the alt tuning mechanism.

Can't lower action any lower?

What do I do if I can't lower the action any lower?

This is an SG copy with a glue on neck. The bridge piece won't go any lower. Is there anything I can do to make it go lower?
