hey everybody, I got my new agile ps-900 not too long ago, I believe it came setup with 9's and I want to put elevens on it, what should I do, and I don't have the money to get it setup at a shop, way to much in my area, I know how to intonate but I'm not sure about the trus rod, I mean is it hard to setup the truss rod?

its not hard... But its ****ing scary cause if you mess up your guitar can be seriously ****ed... just shove an allen wrench in there and turn it no more than a quarter turn

It's best to find someone that knows how to do this and show it to you the first time. It is really dangerous. You might damage the neck irreversibly.

It will be fine, I'm speaking from years of experience.

I went from .9s to .10.s to .12s then down to .11s on most of my guitars without changing anything from when they had .9s

Intonations a little off, but other than that theyre fine.

I've done this on a couple of guitars with no help other than online tutorials. The fretnot link posted above is a fine tut to follow.

You will need to adjust the truss rod. And you will probably have problems at the nut with the strings binding. If you bend notes, or use the trem, and it keeps going out of tune, that's more than likely the problem.

Basically, you can do it yourself if you are careful and patient.

DONT LISTEN TO ANYONE HERE THEIR ALL STUPID


But seriously, as long as you're careful and have some common sense, you should be fine adjusting your truss rod yourself. But I don't even know if you'll need to. I've never changed string guage.

okay i put the new strings on and well, the only thing i had to adjust was the action, other than that a little intonation, and its like new... Its weird though, guess i got lucky, I used the tutorial before and after and the distance between the strings and frets barely changed

I went from 9's to 11's on my RG, without changing anything. The intonation remained perfect, and the neck tension was good, so I didn't mess with anything. For your guitar, it may be different. If so, listen to Matt420740.
