Hi, first post here! Having turned 40 recently, I thought it was a good time to pick up the guitar. I tried a bit of playing on a right-handed acoustic when I was a kid but I never really got into it. Being a lefty, I decided to get a left-handed electric one now.
After some research, I decided on a Yamaha Pacifica 112 and a Fender Mustang I.
I got them a week ago and I'm pretty happy with this setup. Should last me a long time.
Other hobbies: I play drums 4 years now and are member of a gigging band.
I also play keys occasionally, just for my own pleasure.
This looks like a great forum, I hope to meet others and learn a lot over here!
I already have a question: I know I'm pretty critical but I notice that the G string seems to sound a bit off.
I have it tuned correctly (according to the tuner) and it sounds OK when I play it open, like an Em chord.
But when I play an E, so the G# on the G string, it seems to 'stick out', it doesn't blend as well as the other strings.
Tuning it higher or lower doesn't improve it.
Could it be that it needs fine tuning on the bridge side? Any other idea?
