Let's give you the situation:
On some strings, at certain frets the string partly or totally mutes, because it touches other frets too. ( Mainly on higher frets this problem occurs)

I have got a Standard Strat model, cheap beginners guitar.. SSS pickups and just a standard Bridge.

I heard some time ago .. tinner strings need less spring tension,
So as 009/010 even need just 2 springs and higher string size need 3 of even 4.

I play with 010 and my guitar has 3 springs in the back ( I think when I bought this guitar It had 012 strings on it, that's why 3 springs..)
My bridge Sadles are like on highest as possible
and STILL I have an sort of automatic mute on strings on certain frets.

What you suggest ?
Remove a spring (What is the best way to do this?)
Other solution ?

Please name it.


Thx

you can loosen the truss rod a little, to give the neck a slight bow, but be careful

if you don't find a solution, take the guitar to a technician at a music shop near you, they'll sure help you

u just need to adjust the action and or truss rod

The action can be adjusted by adjusting the Bridge sadles, or am I wrong ?
The sadles are on their heighest position which mean the action is on his higest and still I get this mute..

About this truss rod.. What is this and how can this be adjusted.. ?

look at the part of ur guitar where ur tuing heads are and ull see a little slot with the shape of an allen key in it,

the truss rod itself runs through the neck

be very careful with this, only turn it a quarter turn RIGHT once a day,

but basically this can help out with fret buzz and unwanted string touching

if u dont even know what it is dont touch it... like it was said, take to a tech... sometimes it can be things that u dont even thing about it... and if something go wrong..(neck broken or something) theyll have to pay u a new one XD

Umm I have been thinking, what if i Unstring my guitar and adjust my bridge position ?
I'm not sure, I never adjusted it, and it probably doesn't adjust itself.. But there is a slight positiblity.

What do you think?

You don't need to take the strings off...
