Quote from: analog kid on February 10, 2014, 07:20:48 PMSorry for the late reply. I'm on antibiotics for an ear infection, they're making me drowsy and aren't helping anyway. Have to wait another month to see a doctor. I'll have to pick this up possibly in the future some time.
Quote from: The General on February 10, 2014, 07:39:56 PMWell, there's your problem right there.
Quote from: The General on February 12, 2014, 11:07:34 PMNew episode is in the can and will be posted shortly....This month, I'm unveiling a new segment, "Guitar News with Red." That's (Redacted).
Quote from: analog kid on February 14, 2014, 06:52:52 AMI'll say one more thingI'll just say one more thing on it and shut up and go away, but to my untrained eye, I can't see any problems when sighting the neck, and the action is two quarters' width and the Hi E 12th and about three quarters' and the Low E. I believe I'll wait until spring or so to see if the change in humidity here has any dramatic effect on it. Thanks for offering the assistance, too, General.
Quote from: The General on February 14, 2014, 12:12:07 PMThat's pretty high action, which alone is enough to cause intonation and playability problems.If the neck is straight, the saddle needs to be lowered. To do that, you have to remove the saddle from its slot and sand it down from the bottom. Hope that helps.
Quote from: (Redacted) on February 14, 2014, 03:03:30 PMI know someone here will pervert this, but, nut height is critical to the quality of your action.

Quote from: analog kid on February 14, 2014, 03:51:35 PMI lubricate my nuts with big bends nut sauce.There are actually no euphemisms in that sentence.

Quote from: ziznak on February 16, 2014, 09:08:22 AMWhere or what in the natural non-internet/non-tuner equiped world is like a good standard for tuning that low E when there are no other stringed instruments to base the tone off of?
Quote from: ziznak on February 16, 2014, 09:08:22 AMAlso, whats the avg life expectancy for a standard set of Ernie's... it seems to me that if you go with the weakest link then it comes down to that lightest gauge of string. I consider strings old when my high E and B start to feel like they're not so slinky anymore. Whats your estimate in time for an avg set of strings on a cared for guitar?
Quote from: aldousburbank on February 16, 2014, 09:17:30 AMWhen all else fails, you can always count on Neil Young's "Down By The River" for your low and high E's.
Quote from: The General on February 16, 2014, 09:49:07 AMThat good for nothing hippie?Count on Neil Young for anything and you'll be living in a van "Down By The River."[attachimg=1]If all else fails, the first note from the Beatles' "Day Tripper" is a low E.
Quote from: (Redacted) on February 16, 2014, 02:03:56 PM"Dazed and Confused" intro is a low E too, or sometimes I'd use "Crazy Train" or "Suicide Solution" riffs to get that low E, and go from there.

Quote from: guildnavigator on February 17, 2014, 08:23:12 AMYou can also tune to your dial tone on your telephone. It's so fresh!In North America, it's an F (first fret on your low e).
