Adjusting the action/unlocking - You just wanna loosen it a tad bit depending on how much you want to adjust your action. You dont have to take it all out, sometimes its hard to find the small head so flashlight/long side of the allen wrench may help.

Locking - After you're satisfied with your new action, tighten it, snug not too tight, you dont want to be stripping the small head.

I've been working on the intoanation on my strat because the high E and B string intonation was way off. I fixed the E string, but whenever I move the saddle on the B string, the intonation doesn't change. What could be causing this problem?

are you using new strings? the best time to set your intonation is right after you've changed the strings and stretched them out a bit with your hand.

i have a pitch problem as well. my intonation is set right (i can play any note on the fretboard into a tuner and it's in tune), but certain intervals sound absolutely terribly out of tune unless i tune the higher string down 14 cents (to a perfect interval). this makes barre chords out of the question. any ideas? my guitar is in my sig, i'm using GHS .10's and the korg tuner everybody and his brother has.

I'm sorry for Re-Posting my question, but it got missed and remained unanswered.

What is Killswitching?

For some reason, I had the n00bish idea that it was copying the guitar style of Killswitch Engage or something...

i hear this question from time to time. the only thing i can come up with, is that the string is snagged somewhere, maybe at the nut cut or that the saddle is stuck.

a new string detune it, move the string around. make sure the saddle is moving.

an old string, swap the string.

are they jumbo frets? sometimes a low or high fret can toss a note out of tune.
how u press at that fret is very important

a kill switch cuts the power to the guitar. "kills" it.
so when u flick the kill switch u get a RAM sound.

sometimes guys will zero out the volume on one pup, flick back and forth to get the same effect.

it's a les paul, so i assume they're medium jumbo. i don't think it's my playing, i can play the same stuff on similar guitars and be just fine.

well, it could be that a few of the frets are a little high. so that really wouldnt be ur fault.

you could fashion a straight edge, fret frets long, to check for high frets.
or take it in to a tech, see if he can find a problem in that area.

You'd have a big problem, the top of your guitar is routed and there's bigger holes there.

Whats the reason you wanna do this? loss of tuning?

ok, im in a predicament
i recently got my bass restrung for me, with pretty low action
and last night, i left the bass in my garage, which was pretty humid.
and now, the action is like half an inch at the twelth fret
is there any way for me to fix this? did the humidity do this to the bass?

yeah, u can try lowering the action at the bridge.

does it have these kind of saddles or similar?



if so, a small allen wrench on the front pegs will adjust each string to a better height.

dont leave the guitar in a humid garage. the heat and the moisture will rust the parts and possibly warp the neck a little.

let me know if it's a different style bridge, or if this doesnt help wt the action.

The low E and A string?

You could try increasing your action little by little until the buzz is gone


those 2 posts you see on the left and right side of the bridge, raise the bass side
