Seems to be a standard acoustic setup to me. If it doesn't have all the string pins in it, you'll need to get some. you simply pull out the pin, put the string in, then wind it up on the machine heads (tuners) On this one you may need to put the strings through from the inside, I'm not sure about this particular model. I like a double wrap to start on the bass strings, but that's a choice I make. You could go with nylon strings, get ball end, they're easier to use than plain. It takes a bit of know how to do plain, thy have to be wrapped just right on the pins.

You could hook the output of the GR33 to something like an AKAI MPC (http://www.akaipro.com/mpc) assigning different notes to trigger different samples or sequences.

SOURCE: Which are the best strings for Yamaha fg 300A guitar?

How do you play? Strummer, finger style or power chord.
Next question, how deep is your pocket?
I prefer Martin Acoustic 80/20 Bronze 12s but D'Addario EXPs are as good. If you are a light player try 11s and for a heavy player 13s.

SOURCE: which string used for epiphone gibson lea paul special II guitar

I've played guitar for 49 years now. I've tried many many brands of strings. I've personally settled on DiAddario light gauge. It is for the most part a personal issue, but I've found them to be reliable, consistent and of good tone. It's a very rare thing for me to break a string even though I am often aggressive in my playing.i hope this helps you. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=d%27addario+strings&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3sqos73d4gIVBlmGCh3GGgBYEAAYASAAEgKhe_D_BwE&hvadid=345523770918&hvdev=t&hvlocphy=9015252&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t1&hvqmt=e&hvrand=13455581615656316442&hvtargid=kwd-108806229&hydadcr=21876_10169837&tag=googhydr-20&ref=pd_sl_6jjnx6qixf_e

How to string an electric guitar


I'm writing this tutorial to help new guitarists string their electric guitars.<br /><br />The first step is to purchase some strings from your nearest music store, depending on the type of music you want to play the string gage will be different. If you want to play heavier music such as metal then I suggest using a heavier gage of string. If you want to play calmer music such as indie, or maybe soft rock I suggest a lighter gage.<br /><br />Next make sure and remove <span style="font-weight: bold;">ALL</span> existing strings. The best way to take off the old strings is to simply loosen them up then cut them right in the middle with wire cutters. Then just pull the left end through the tuning knobs, and the right end through the back of the guitar (Note where the strings come out of the back).<br /><br />After you have removed all the strings its time to put on the new ones. Start with the string closest to the top of the guitar. On your string package you can reference by color which string is which. Find your string then run the sharp end through the back of the guitar in the hole relative to the string you are putting in (These holes in the back are the same holes the old strings came out of). Run the string all the way through so that it is pulled tightly into the back. Now place the sharp end of the string through its relative tuning knob at the top of the guitar. You should pull enough through so that when you pull the string up off the neck there is a gap of about one foot. Now turn the tuning knob clockwise until the string is relatively tight against the neck and it has wrapped around the knob 3-5 times. Now cut the excess string that is coming out of the tuning knob but leave about 1 inch in case you want to lower the tuning. <br /><br />Do the same thing for all your strings, then tune them with either a digital tuner or by ear if you can. You can purchase a cheap digital tuner for around $20 at your nearest music store.<br /><br />Enjoy!!

How change strings gibson guitar?


One of the best was to keeping your guitar in tune, is to also string it correctly and use new strings . Make sure the first winding of a new string around the tuner post goes over the exposed tip of the new string. The rest of the windings go under the exposed tip of the string. This will keep the string clamped firmly in place. Use 4-5 turns around the post for unwound strings, 2-3 for wound strings, in a downward spiral towards the bottom of the post as shown in the photo.-Tom, 30yr player.

I have a First Act Garage Master Custom Guitar, Black - Volkswagen Limited Edition and i need a new string and they always ask me what gauge it is and i have no clue have any answers


The electric guitars without the floyd system usually have the wire gauge of 10-46 (10 being the thinnest and measuring just 0.010 inches)
The gauge goes from: high e - 10, B - 13, G - 17, D - 26, A - 36, low E - 46.
Strings D, A and low E are wound and have a gold look, while G, B and high e are plain and have a silver look.

D10sce will not work when plugged into the amp. the cord is nine ( works with my electric.) battery is new. when you turn up the volume on the controll, you can hear it in the amp, just no pick up sound.t


SUBSTITUTE Change the guitar for a friends to see if the amp is really OK. Try your guitar in a friends amp to see if the guitar is OK If the guitar is at fault its either the battery, the connection cord, the little pre amp in the guitar body (you can't fix that) or you have put nylon strings on the guitar which needs stell strings for the pickup to work. Good luck

I bought a Hagstrom Ultra Swede which sounded very nice when I first bought it but after 3 months I seem to have alot of tuning problems with it. It has been intonated twice and a new set of heavier...


Considerations:

1. Intonation problems can be due to worn strings even if the guitar is set up properly. New Strings can fix this. This is the most common problem.

2. Also, changing string size may effect your set up too. Typically, new guitars come with lighter strings such as (9's) which the guitar is set up for. The positive is that 9's fret easily. The negative is that they bend too easily for some players who either slightly bend them when chording (accidentally), or press too hard on guitars with jumbo sized frets, which in turn bends the string toward the fret board causing detuning. To fix these items folks may suggest you get a heavier string like a (10), but the problem can often be solved by playing with a lighter hand, pressing only enough to make contact with the fret and not pressing the string all the way to the fretboard. Check your intonation using this light touch method and see if it's okay verses pressing the string all the way to the fretboard. If the intonation is okay with the light touch, the guitar intonation is set up properly. You may want to consider playing with a lighter hand or getting a guitar without jumbo frets such as Fender strats etc...

Putting a heavier string on a guitar set up for (9's) would likely cause the buzzing that wasn't there before. In this case you'd need the guitar and neck set up again to accomodate the 10's. So decide what size string you want and set the guitar up for that size.

These considerations are true for any electric guitars.

After consideration of all of the above, you still feel it's the guitar, I suggest you push for a replacement or perhaps credit toward another guitar.

One string broken, how to refit it?


Sorry Dude
If you can not replace a broken string, then you need a few lessons from a friend.Find a pal to jam with.
It sounds like you broke your E string. Take it down to the local music shop. Buy a new string and ask the guy to put it on for you. Offer them a tip, its worth it.I could tell you. But you need the string so ask for assistance and see it in 3D. Keep on playing DFD

No instructions for a yamaha erg 121 c electric guitar


i don't really know what instructions you expected, although you should have received something for the tuner and amp. I suspect that you are new to playing the guitar, as, I don't wish to sound disrespectful, you would know what to do! So first, and again I hope not to sound like I'm treating you like a dummy, plug the guitar into the tuner input. Or if It's a piezo tuner clamp it to your headstock. Most tuners are now automatic so it should pick up on the string you are striking.Repeatedly pluck the same string til the tuner changes colour, or flashes, or some other indication to tell you the string is at pitch. Repeat the above for all 6 strings.
Then plug the cable into the amp input, switch it on, and bugger about with the controls til you get a half decent sound. ( thats what the rest of us do).Don't expext too much from this package, it is budget level, but of quite good overall quality.hope this helps
