Hi, I have just bought a Jackson js30dk and I sent it to calibrate and change the strings.
The 5 and 6 strings sounds like Metallic, I compare the 5 with the 4 string and i realize that there is a difference, the 5 sounds strange.
The strings arent touching the frets because a technician calibrated the bridge and the arm.
Thanks for the help.

Was it like that before the setup?

its because the strings are new... play on them for a day or two and they will lose that metallic-ness

Isn't it recomended also that you stretch them outwards and then leave them for a few hours

Or did I dream that?

Yes It was, It can be that the strings are new, I hope.
Thanks.

Now it's mentioned, I do remember all my string changes being like that, so don't worry and just 'wear them in'.

You won't even notice when it disappears, well I didn't anyway

as for the stretching that does help keep the strings in tune but since he has a locking trem system i figure its good enough as is

The Strange thing is that when i realized that sound I changed the strings for my old guitar ones that where sounding good but the sound was still there.
Then I changed all of them for a new ones.
Maybe is some adaptation process that the string have to pass.
I am gonna go to the technician again to ask him just in case.
Thanks.
