If you enjoy three string guitars, this is the place!

Hi Folks, This is the group to share everything about the three string guitar...it is only about 3 stringers, not that there is a problem with 6 string guitars, those are cool, and 4 stringers are nifty too...but this is a place to share ideas and post anything and everything 3 string.

There is another website on the net that is all 3 string info .... come visit it sometime, just Google "3 string guitar" or visit 3-string-guitar.com.


Get out of the rutt, play a three string!

I just found an awesome site for figuring out chords. You enter your tuning and it will give you the fingering of the chords. Play around with the settings. It's interesting!!

Somebody else also mentioned clear nail polish along the way; it worked pretty good and was easy to source.

Try a drop of clear nail polish--------works like locktite but its a little more "diy". It also works to seal a scratch and comes in lots of colors to use as touch up paint. Art

You can try to get longer screws, they do sell them in a longer allen head version, I think for fenders, I have also had that same problem

Hard tail bridge screws: Anybody have issues with the elevation screws for saddles falling out? I'm trying to figure out something that I can use to keep them put but still allow adjustment. LocTite purple might work but I would rather do something DIY.
