Another String Question......

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by ZenG, Dec 26, 2013.

  1. Had D'addario HalfRound 45/100's on my Ibanez SR300

    for about around 6 or 7 weeks now.

    When I first put them on they sounded pretty good IMO.

    Now I'm getting funny harmonics on some notes and a sort of double harmonic on the G string when you play it up near 12th fret......

    Some notes have a "rolling" rumble to them.....low E in particular......

    Forever tuning the strings........

    replaced the pre-amp battery recently...I don't think that's worn out yet........

    Time for new strings?

    OP was sort of like reading a haiku. I feel as though the last line "time for new strings?" is kind of a poetic metaphysical question.

    It would look good on a gravestone:

    "Herbert H. Herbert
    Time For New Strings?"

    well....it's amazing what one-quarter turn of a truss rod can accomplish....

    Took the guitar down to my local guitar shop guru's

    Was informed I had a slight too much bit of "backbow"...

    He turned the trussrod a little...and...suddenly it sounded 150% better

    I couldn't see it with my naked eye initially.......but he could.

    No need for new strings........sounds great now.....
