So basically, either use heavier strings, or shim with a thicker shim, and it may correct the issue?
Thank you all guys.
I knew I am in the right place
Lots of interesting information.
I will play with the bridge a little bit and then probably change the strings to 11's.
Anyway, even now guitar plays quite well, it's just needs a little little more relief.
Thank you all!!!!
@ManKonis - sorry for slightly hijacking your thread, but this seemed like the right place to ask this question!:
Can anyone confirm the gauge of Allen key (hex wrench) used to adjust the truss rod on Squier Strats?
All my tools are in the UK, so I can't check if i have the right one.
I was going to buy the little Fender set of a big and tiny key, but they've sold out in my local place here.
While I'm asking, what size is the tiny one used to adjust the bridge saddle heights?
(You know, I have a feeling it's not going to be, one size fits all! ... it's for my Strat SE CAE-00 serial no.)
ROFL !!!!! That is priceless !
I agree and can relate !
You are correct ,they vary ,I have one MIC that has an SAE sized nut!? The little one is for bridge saddles like you said and for bridges like on Jazzmasters where there is a hole on each end of the bridge you can raise and lower the ends of the bridge. I would start with a set of metric allen wrenches, 4mm to begin and test to fit going up from there. Jmho though others may have a better suggestion.
Don't worry, all thread is yours I have my answers.
So, I have a fender tool kit and hex keys doesn't fit with my Mij squier strat and Mii jaguar.
Squier needs 1.5 hex key for the bridge saddles and 4 for truss rod.
Fender kits costs a money so be sure if it really gonna help you.
Shim has to be in the right spot to provide proper action...
A flat or slight backbow would need the shim placed at the top of the pocket (in this diagram that would be the front) placed in the bottom (or back) would compound the problem..
Raising the saddles also accomplishes the same result.. and would be my preferred method..
Us guitar players don't know nothing 'bout concave and convex. We ain't educated good. We knows our letters up to G and numbers up to 6.
Not in a thousand years...er...hmmm
No.. it wasn't a person, it was the entire engineering dept that did that. NOW... it proliferated through our company. So I started making fun of them by saying "Pringling Taco" and stuff like that. Then people look at me and I say "Well they made up frowny and smiley, why can't I make up silly words?"
And *I'm* the bad guy.
just for you ....
Fret buzz? not wires tingling the metal bars on the long part of the thing?
