The first thing I would do is put the correct Guage string on (same as what came on the guitar from the factory) as that may solve your problem. Many times any problems that crop up on a brand new gu ...

Thanks Bruce. That's what I thought. I seem to remember seeing him on other albums where he did the session. But, I never heard of him being in any other band than Jimmy's. Talk about a great gig.

Jimmy Buffet. But he also may have played for Ricky.

I don't expect it to sound like a resonator. I do have an EQ pedal I use for "dobro" sounds on my PSG. I would try that on it. Mainly, I just want to be able to play with a bar. I am not ...

+1 to what David V said.

I put standard medium gauge strings on my round neck dobro, and GBDGBD tuning works fine on it, no neck warpage and good intonation.

Which model Ibanez is it? Nut extenders are available pretty widely and generally do a good job (depending on the width of the neck).

AW800RECE-NT

I could live with an E or D tuning.

Ron Elliott is one of my favorites.

He has the best harmonics in the business. They make me collapse in ecstasy (there's a picture for y'all).

David, yours cost more because, it has the high profile neck with split tuning, 9 pedals, likely at least 8 knee levers, oh, and don't forget, the lacquer cabinet.

If you change the 3rd string a little more often, it wouldn't break. I haven't broken any string in at least a couple of years.

I’ve used a 22p for years. I think the 6th string sounds much better with the larger gauge. No problems raising it to A or lowering to F#.

I agree with Tony. Been using a .022p for much of my 5 ...

Sounds like their student model. The pro S10 came with 5p/2k. I had a 1971 S10. But the student model had the same pro undercarriage parts as the pro models if I remember right.

Yup. It apparently is a Dekley. Must have been a student model, or a very, very early one.

Those yokes on the E9 pulls are superior to many and reminiscent of Kline or ZB.

Every BL pickup I have ever installed into a PSG, they never fit without me having to file a bunch off the baseplate to fit. But once done, they are great, and my favorite pickups.
