..some more sPrings put into my Fender Strat, to hold my bridge down (I started using heavier gauge strings so the bridge like lifted off). I had this done at a music shop just before I went to play a gig, and the guy who put the springs in for me told me to come back when I next restring my guitar, cause he needs to adust the intonement and other stuff.

I broke a string later, but that music shop was too far away so I went to my music shop nearer to me, and the ****s there were 'too busy' (2 people in the store, like 4 workers there??) to do it. But I can't live like 5 hours without my guitar so I just went home and restrung it. Can I just leave my guitar like this? I don't know how to adjust the intonement and whatever else that guy told me, will it be fine like this?

Guitar and Bass Basics Forum, good sir....But you should have the guitar intonated correctly, or you will sound a itty bit out of tune if you play power chords....Keep in mind that is depending on how much it needs to be intonated....If not much, then you'll sound okay....

[quote="'Tommy[fin"]']They were too busy to sell you a pack of strings?

This belongs into the electric guitar forum.

No, they were too busy to set the intonement for me. I did bring my own strings with me, got like 5 packs stocked up.

Ahh crap, I come to the Pit far too often!

EDIT: So, no long term damage will be done to my guitar?

This just happened 3 days ago, so far my strings have been in tune fine. Yep, know this is the wrong forum I'm addicted to the Pit and I'll get raped if I enter.... the ELECTRIC GUITAR FORUM

Seriously though, I know.

the strings might be in tune whe you play them open. but fret the 12th fret with a tuner and see if they're still in tune.

google 'intonation strat style bridge' for a detailed guide
