Guitar Care, Repair, Modification & Lutherie / PS1800 won't stay in tune
« on: October 02, 2013, 12:25:53 AM »
Just bought a PS1800. It came with 9-42 strings. It was supposed to be set up with the Buzz Feiten system so I started noodling right away. Tuned it with an electronic tuner all to open tuning. Started playing chords, it sounded completely out of tune on certain positions, especially the 'G' string. I took it to my guitar setup guy and he set the intonation with the 9's still on it. The 'G' string still gave me issues even after being tuned so he suggested putting 10-46 strings on it, which I did. Again used an electronic tuner, every string dead nuts at 440.

I'm STILL having the same problem with it sounding completely out of tune at certain spots on the neck. Anyone have any suggestions other than to return the guitar? I'm taking it back to my setup guy tomorrow for another try. He's familiar with the system and says it's mostly a gimmick, plus the nut isn't even offset like it should be. Is it the Feiten system causing the issues or has anyone else had problems with this model guitar? This is the first guitar I've had with the Feiten system and every other of my  guitars, including two Les Pauls, the guy has worked on all stay in tune perfectly.

Looking for a hardshell case for a PS1800. I would prefer a Washburn custom but a molded universal will also do. I'm having a tough time finding a universal that is suitable because of the horn on the guitar. Thanks.

Just bought a PS1800 and am looking for a hardshell, (preferably custom but will take a universal if the guitar fits), case for it instead of the included gig bag. Please shoot me a PM if you have one or know where I can pick one up. Thanks in advance.
