5-String Mirage?


Selepas sessi jamming Sabtu lepas, tali pertama (high-E) Mirage aku selalu out-of-tune, lima tali yang lain EADGB tidak bermasalah. Petanda awal adalah semasa aku menunjukkan demo tuning dan kestabilan Floyd Rose Special (FRS) kepada si Korawk dan Azrol. Pada mulanya aku ingatkan tali putus, rupa-rupanya ia terlepas dari saddle (Korawk pastinya ingat insiden ni).

5-string guitar?
Setelah disiasat, punca utamanya adalah disebabkan tali high-E tidak dapat dikepit dengan ketat pada saddle FRS. Selama aku menggunakan FRS pada Mirage ni aku hanya mengetatkan skru saddle dengan pulasan yang optimum (bukan maksimum) dan sentiasa berhati-hati supaya tidak memulasnya terlalu ketat. Kalau terlalu ketat dikhuatiri pengepit logam kecil pada saddle akan pecah.

Bila disiasat dengan lebih terperinci... Alur skru dalaman pada saddle dah haus, longgar dan tidak dapat diketatkan lagi.

Mana aku nak cari alat ganti (spare part) untuk unit di atas sahaja?
Jo Noobaxe? Yustech? Hashtag? Nonuz?
Ya, inilah kelemahan FRS, walaupun rekabentuknya adalah 100% sama seperti Floyd Rose Original (FRO) tetapi material yang digunakan adalah jenis yang "lembut" dan tidak tahan lama. Tahun lepas masalah yang sama terjadi pada hex-bolt locking nut, diganti dengan bolt yang lebih keras diperolehi daripada Jo Noobaxe.

Kes seperti ini tidak pernah terjadi pada ex-Replacement aku dulu yang menggunakan Edge-III bridge, walaupun ramai yang komen Edge-III teruk. Sekurang-kurangnya material pada Edge-III (on RG models, not GRG) lebih keras berbanding FRS.


Jadi, sementara menunggu untuk mendapatkan alat ganti yang sesuai, Mirage ni akan direhatkan dalam rockcase ular untuk suatu jangkamasa yang tidak dapat dipastikan. Aku baru terfikir nak menggunakannya untuk Oktoberfest kelak (faktor string neon). Adakah ini petanda supaya aku menggunakan gitar baru untuk Oktoberfest?

Lepas ni kalau (ya, kalau) aku beli gitar dengan sistem "locking tremolo", aku tak akan beli lagi yang menggunakan sistem FRS. Mungkin aku akan target sistem Edge-Zero II w/ZPS atau ZR atau alang-alang FRO terus.

Ada apa: Kepada rakan-rakan gitaris FRS (atau bakal), jadikan kes ini sebagai tauladan.
