HI.

I'm new and write from Italy.


I've got crazy to tune my 7 string electric guitar Ibanez Prestige, Floyd Rose.


I've tryed many ways, but with no results.

I've mounted now D'addario string XL EXL120-7 009 011 016 024 032 042 054 but
i never reach the B tune, but my accordation reach more easily the Bb tune, but with a 25 cent of tuning in more for all strings, and all strings are tuned each other.

In other words i reach the Bb tune, but it is not Bb perfectly, but raised 25 cent of tunes more (1/8 of tone or 1/4 of semi-tone).

Since i should record guitars, i've need to reach the B or Bb Tuning without cents of rest.

Any suggest and help is strongly appreciated.

Thanks.


Mike

you are using the fine tuners right? sometimes this problem arises when people dont realize that you need to tune about a quarter step flat then lock the nut, then use the fine tuners.

I haven't understand...

You have stopped playing a 7 string guitar because not able to tune it?

I hope no

Yes, i use the fine tuners i think right (would indicate me what right and what wrong?).

What you want to say with "about a quarter step flat"??

You want say "a quarter of semi-tone" in plus than 0 (0=perfect tune) ?
