Well, I have one and it is awesome. It feels small in my hands but it plays tones and sounds that I can't get outta any of my other guitars. Schecter is a fine guitar builder and they proove it everywhere.
Is the guitar making any unusual sounds like humming, excessive feedback/squealing? If not then you could probably leave the wire be. But it is a ground wire, so connecting it to ground is not gonna hurt anything.
What's your opinion? If you don't think it's the bridge, what do you think is the likely culprit?
Hope that helps
I don't want to change arbitrarily, I want to because it goes out of tune really quickly, and the bridge is the most likely candidate for that, I think.
The point is missed, it's about essencially reducing wear and/or the risk of damage. It requires no extra effort so thus there is no valid reason to not do it. Wood is a sensitive material, why not take the extra care?
If you really want to know the why behind the what, research elastic interaction and preload scatter. It works both ways, tightening or loosening.
Wrong again, it's just as important for unbolting with the relief of pressure/tension. It isn't "my methodology" I told you before, you're clutching at straws here honestly I don't see what you're trying to achieve.
It isn't me you're arguing with. Like I said this stuff is taught in schools, books etc. I don't think I've ever seen it not done this way in my life. I'l say this, my grandad was a carpenter, my brother and best mate are both joiners/carpenters (brother runs his own joinery) and my dad was an engineer. So perhaps I've been around this kind of mentality more than most but what I'm talking about to them would be considered just basic knowledge, something you do without thinking about it, something that needs no discussion.
I find it quite laughable that people can be so ignorant with this, I'm stating a widely used method in all forms of engineering, joinery and other crafts, a method instructed in books, taught in schools here, something considered absolutely basic common sense when it comes to working on a guitar.
Why do you wear a seatbelt in a car?
Does it require any real extra effort? no
Does it reduce the risk of damage? yes
So then why would you not do it. You're making the mistake of thinking I've sat here and really thought about this, when infact I was simply taught to do it this way, somebody else did all the thinking and all I am showing is knowledge that has been passed on to me.
The guy asked how to take off a neck, and I told him how to do it in the correct way. Can you think of even one practical reason why you wouldn't do it this way?
I just think you don't understand. You do this when you put on a car wheel too (or you're supposed to), or when tightening up the bolts on a piece of machinery. It isn't about how well built it is, it's about having "even" tension accross the whole surface, and avoiding over stressing single points. It's not about "big movements" as you're imagining, but tolerences.
Why don't you post a picture?
I actually thought about doing this, especially when I move if the walls are thin. Can't crank up a tube amp in an apartment sadly.
Can you not use a pod with Powered Monitors? That's always another option, especially if volume is an issue if you can.
most of the s series here has wizard 2 neck....
yo phil, long time no see
the one i m thinking to buy has edge 2 zp3fe donno much about its quality though know its not good as the original edge.
And do you think it's better to go with the FR or not have one? I dont know if there is a way you could switch the guitar to hardtail if I dont like the FR.
Hm sorry but it sounds like a chinese fake. Although wtf is chinese copy of a chinese guitar? Whatever.
Oh, right. Grovers it is!
Now to do my research and find out who sells this stuff to AUS.
You like the color of Ebony? Get Ebony. You like the color of Rosewood? Get Rosewood. Not much more to it than that.
Im talking in AUD though, import prices are through the roof.
And no, just schecter locking tuners - it seems they don't like to use grovers or anything like that very often.
I was going to do that the last time I was in the market and someone raised some concern about LTD cutting some corners as far as not putting in an electrical part that is not necessary for actives but necessary for passives, making a swap impossible, can't recall what it could be though.
New strings can be a bit treble-y. Try putting them in boiling water for 20 minutes.
