Hello! Thanks for the tip! That said, I did look into these before, but shipping to my country costs around $70 from TonePros, so that's not really an option for me...
Same goes for Chair-Loc, though I guess I might be able to find an alternative for that.
Yep, I know :(
In my defense, I did protect it with some fat spongy tape, but I think I damaged it by hitting it one too many times and the pressure just collapsed the finish in, I did not chip it or anything.
Still, sad to have damaged the guitar, but it's not that bad once the tailpiece is...
I've waited for the glue to dry for roughly 28 hours. I achieved practically nothing, since the same thing happens again.
I'll just leave it as is, since I'm not ready to experiment any further and risk damaging my guitar again.
Once it's time for new strings, I'll try top wrapping them to see...
Thanks ARandall! I guess you're right!
Just to be clear, I didn't really cry (though I think crying just a little would have been totally justified and manly), just being a tiny little bit theatrical, but it's a new guitar, I just felt a little stupid for ruining the finish so soon, and not...
Thank you Side Burns! Seeing this photo does make me feel a little bit better!
I guess there's no use crying over spilled milk :)
Seeing this photo also made me remember the intonation tip you gave me earlier today.
I was able to do it for all the strings but A. It just does not have enough...
I've used the newspaper + glue method again, this time I'll leave it for 24 hours before putting the strings back on.
While doing this, I damaged the guitar finish, as visible in the photo below. I tried to be as careful as possible, but I must have hit the wood one too many times.
I cried like...
The glue was a bit tacky, yes. I used a piece of wood and a small rubber hammer, I was not able to push it in with only my fingers.
The video creator used newspaper, says it works best in his experience.
Should I leave it for 10-12 hours, would that be enough?
Yes, I can still see a gap... I removed the tape, tried with newspaper and wood glue (as in the video), left it dry for around 2 hours and still the same thing happens as soon as I restrings the guitar.
If I put a thicker layer of paper, then I can't get it in at all, and once I push it, all...
Hi, just an update on this.
I've put a small piece of paper tape (I think it's the same as what you'd call a masking tape) on the one that was just a little loose and it worked like a charm.
I've put a bit more on the problematic one and added the tip of a toothpick split in half on top of that...
Hi All! Thanks for replying!
Unfortunately, sending it back is not an option.
I've listened to your advice. I removed the stop bar and the upper post is just a little loose, while the lower one is quite easy to get out (almost no resistance whatsoever).
I'd like to avoid having to drill...
Hi! Thanks for replying!
I'm sorry, but I watched the whole video and was not able to figure out what top wrapping has to do with this? Strings still create tension and pull the tailpiece in the same direction.
Hello everyone! :wave:
I recently purchased a Cort CR100 guitar and have noticed that my tailpiece is a little tilted forward once I get all my strings in tune.
I wanted to raise the tailpiece a little bit, but I'm afraid to do so since I'm not sure if it can break of or something.
I came here...
