Hi Dave!
I’m a Left-Haned bass player and getting a LH acoustic bass is becoming a
big issus in my life. Do you have any suggestion where I could get one from?
An intstrument maker acquintance of mine told me he could transform a
symmetric Ibanez into lefy. Do you think it would be possible?
The question is about this guitar below.

Is it ok to use Dampit for Bass on an acoustic guitar? because I cant find
dampit for Acoustics anywhere, except if i order it from USA which takes
time. (I currently live in uk)

bridge pins fucking fly out like a damn turkey, and the nut fell off like
my grandmas hip when putting some new strings on it

Dave’s got vids on humidity and action setups on acoustic guitars. Wood is
darker shaded when humid and lighter when dry. Judge the clean wood! When
guitars are dry they shrink and while humid they swell. Depending on how
they were setup you’d see some changes in neck relief, action etc. Wood if
too dry too long will crack easier. If an instrument experiences a lot or
just too much of this there could be all sorts of problems like
loose/raised frets and changes in glued joints and the finish.

Yeah he’s made that point about the humidifiers lots of times and I totally
agree. The sound hole has to be covered for the humidifier to work properly
and the ‘thingy’ with all the moisture in it has to go all the way inside
the sound box. I just use like a sponge with duct tape on one side and I
cover the sound hole with a piece of plexiglass just thick enough to stay
tight under the strings.

Tell them that it’s a sponge stuffed into a rubber hose with holes. lmao
Government ammo can packing foam works as a material for soaking up the
water from the spigot. Not as spongy as sponge.

Cool bass and nice tips

Written By luis stump on August 11th, 2014 @ 2:58 pm

Try pushing down on the pins until you’ve got the strings in tension and
tighten them to pitch evenly. Change the strings one by one. Start with a
broken one if any. I’ve found that makes them stay in place. Ebenholz is a
really good material for pins. Did the nut stay in place while the strings
were on it? If it did then it will stay on when you change the strings one
by one. Some parts on some instruments aren’t glued in so they can resonate
more freely and usually they have concave bottoms.

when did you buy it?

Written By Dave's World of Fun Stuff on August 11th, 2014 @ 4:32 pm

Sweet, gonna be rare soon, “Exotic Woods” model (what this is ) is
discontinued. I found it a couple places for $549 new… Might be nice to
sit back in the recliner & practice, looks fairly light compared to my
Schecter EXP. I can’t reach the headstock on it when I sit in my chair. =8|

Haha my computer shut off when he was puting his finger in the sound hole
and when i turned it back on it was glitching up and it looked like he was
fingering the sound hole.

Playing 5 string isn’t that bad for me, if I’m doing it fingerstyle. For
some reason, though, I find it impossible for me to slap a 5 string…
Strings too close together.

If you live in a damp country like me you don’t need to use moister control
systems like that!

How do we know when guitar is too dry? I have Fender Kingman Acoustic Bass,
and have some action problems, neck is as straight as it can be, but action
is still to high. Does humidity also affects that ,or can you perhaps say
something about what humidity actually affects?

Written By M3Z4C on August 11th, 2014 @ 7:56 pm

all acoustic guitars need humidity that’s why you dont see a lot of old
ones they dry up twist and end up as bird houses

Written By Dave's World of Fun Stuff on August 11th, 2014 @ 8:15 pm

that damn thing is pretty beefy isn’t it? maybe they give you the extra
bridge and all incase you screw up putting it on? i still watch because
it’s really interesting and one day i will get the nerve up to work on my
own guitar also after watching all of these repairs and such
