I suggest that you post a couple more photos. One that shows the entire guitar, both the front and top side, and another that shows the entire bottom side of the guitar. Certainly, this is not a con ...

Another thing you should do; make more windings at the tuning keys. 3-4 turns minimum on the wound strings 8-10 turns on the plain strings. They will stay in tune much better.

My experience is that the unwound strings tend to make more grooves on the fingers, not the wound strings. All the plain unwound strings are identical, music wire, not stainless steel. It seems lik ...

Your seating position has a lot of affect on this. It sounds like you are placing your foot at about a 90 degree angle to the pedal bar. Try shifting your seat to toward the right. Now, you left fo ...

Sometimes a new Allen wrench will fit tight enough to get a screw out. The corners of the Allen wrench will round off slightly with use, especially the smaller sizes.

Dennis, your RKR is lowering, to do that it needs to have a reversing action. That's why it is set up like that. Look at your lever that lowers 4 and 8. It uses a different method to achieve the lo ...
