Zoom G2.1u multi-effects... When I plug the 9v adaptor in it switches on and then the adaptor falls out and loses connection. I know this is basic stuff but does anyone know any low-tech hacks or anything to solve this or am I going to have to get a bigger adaptor connector thing :P
Errm, it should be fine but OFR are known not to to properly fit the mounting studs of licenced ones, take the strings, springs and bridge off your guitar and leave the mounting studs in. Then take it to your local guitar shop and ask them if they could check if an OFR would fit, if it does buy one, but try to buy one by Schaller made in Germany (it will say "made in Germany" on the bridge block. If all goes well then you should have better tuning, flutter effect, sharper responce and yes it will withstand heavy-trem use...In fact more than your current licenced one. And the reason for Schaller is because I've found it to be the best so far.
You may need a truss rod adjustment, doubt you'll need any new springs but you MAY If not its just a simple balancing act with your floyd, also BFMV use D standand and Drop C, and yes they will work, i use 11-54 for it.
What guitar i should get with £270...(GBP if you don't know what the £ is ;]) I play anything but I'm in a band that plays real heavy stuff e.g Machine Head... I love V's and just...need abit of help... Cheer in Adv. people!
Well honestly?? You can't really go wrong with strings, for £5-£10 try ernie ball or dunlop (the signature series are pretty good both Zakk and Kerry King). But if you pay lyk £15 you can get Elixer which last for months!!! But its really your choice you can't really go wrong...but if you play standard tuning get 10s-46s...at least!
Try tightening the truss rod a fraction to stop the rattling because it maybe be loose. If that doesn't work tighen every nut and bolt you see and if that doesn't work see a guitar doc (yeah I copied the guy before me ^^)
Using heavier gauge strings will have more tension than lighter gauge, this heavier tension will cause the bridge to raise and mess up the action, inotation ect...This could be fixed by adjusting the tremolo springs on the back by tightening them pulling the bridge back down, Then you re-tune and adjust until it is perfectly inline with the guitar body.
Just take your time dude! You've clearly got the passion and dedication which is more than alot of people! Just practice! Go slow...play the same thing for an hour?...see if you can speed it up?...if not keep going slow until you can? Just keep your passion and dedication as high as it is! You will be good someday! If you practice everyday for atleast an hour I can promise you will be good!
Either the ESP or Ibanez... I suggest the ESP because of the EMG's and original floyd rose and better looks for shred and metal...Although the Ibanez may have a faster neck...try both the ESP and the Ibanez out and let your fingers decide!
Masking tape....spray paint....razorblade.... CUSTOM PAINT JOBS!!! I know how to and what-not but I don't have as much time as you to post it all on how to, Kill some time and research it...YouTube is a good place to look...anyways yeah research it, do it properly and have fun =P And its not so bad if you screw up, but its pretty hard to. Yeah, or instead of masking tape make some stencils and make custom graphics and stuff?
