How to make an electric guitar ring
For a beginner, it may seem a bit intimidating. But with the right tools, a little knowledge and a few exercises, you can withstand an electric guitar like a professional guitar technology. When I was giggling regularly, I would stop my guitar every week. My body chemistry is sour and the sweat and oils of my hands will tend to shine the strings and make them feel dirty. To me, the bright sound and smooth feeling of a new set of strings will inspire my game. It became my rhythm before the weekend’s gigs started. I will sit in front of the TV and stop my electric guitar; My acoustic was much less frequent.
OK, so you decided that you do not want to pay the guys at the music store and you want to know how to repair an electric guitar yourself. Here is the list of tools and supplies you need: A
new set of strings (of course!) Click here for information on stringA string
sizeswinder (not necessary but very handy) A
pair of wire
cutters A guitar voice (again, not needed but useful)
You will need approximately one hour to do it correctly, but as I said earlier, you will know how to limit your electric guitar in about 20-30 minutes.
First thing to remember do NOT remove all six strings at the same time. The guitar nek is designed to withstand the tension of the strings and if all the tension is removed for a considerable amount of time, you can damage your guitar.
Also, there are some guitars that are literally held together by the queue tension. I remember reading a story about a man recently hired for the Ramones as a kite technology. To make a good impression on Johnny Ramone, he decided to fix his guitar before him. He has already removed six strings and Johnny’s Mosrite guitar literally fell apart. The string tension keeps the whole guitar together! What’s worse, the guitar bridge jumped over the floor and fell into the air conditioning channel.
If I remember the story, they have spent a long time with a jasmier and kuwom who try to save the bridge from the canal. He retrieved it and succeeded in retaining his work, and recovering the guitar another day. But not all six strings!
But I deviate. Some people work in pairs of strings at a time, I prefer to work on individual strings. You will quickly decide what works best for you. Use this article as a guideline to speed you up quickly.
OK, let’s go about it. I always start with the high E-string (personal preference); It helps keep me organized.
If your guitar has a lock nut tremolo (whammy bar) system, unlock it. It works best if you completely remove the clamp and work with the nut only until the repair process is done and the strings are stretched and tuned. Then replace the clamps and refine with the tuners on the tremolo bridge.
Use your rope winder and loosen the rope until there is enough tension to manually relax the rope of the voicemail.
Use your thread cutters to cut and throw away the curled end of the rope. Do this to reduce the chance of scratching your guitar. Press / pull the rope back through the bridge and make sure it does not move over the body. You do not want to stop your guitar from refining your guitar!
Next, draw the appropriate new queue. Put it through the guitar bridge, across the hall, on the neck, across the nut and into the hole in the voicemail. Once again make sure that the back of the rope does not move over the guitar body.
Start turning the tuner manually to make sure that the rope folds over the top of the stamp. Ideally you want 3-4 wraps of the rope around the receiver, but in nothing to over stress.
Turn the receiver until the slack is out and the rope sits properly in the nut and over the bridge hall.
Next, cut the excess rope close to the receiver and use your string winder to raise the rope.
Use your digital receiver and voice on the pitch.
Then grab the rope with your picking hand halfway between the bridge and the nut and easily pull the rope off the fretboard. Do not really hesitate, just hard enough to pull the rack out of the rope and tie it to the tuner bag.
Vote for the pitch and repeat the stretching process until the queue remains.
Repeat the entire process for the remaining five strings. Know that the pitch of the new strings can swing while working on the remaining strings. This is especially true with a Floyd Rose or similar type of drive bridge. When replacing and stretching the last rope make sure that all six strings are still in the correct order. If you have a locking tremolo system, replace the clamp for the lock nut, turn, and use the fine tuners of the bridge to get the right pitch.
The final step is the best one; sit back, turn your office and enjoy Make sure you play something with a lot of note bending in it and make sure the rack has already been played.
Take satisfaction to know that you now know how to repair an electric guitar.
