Glissentar Strings - Reprise

September 23, 2006 00:43 by keithkaragan
The strings I ordered from http://stringsandbeyond.com/ on a Friday were delivered on Tuesday - great turn around for such a niche item - I'm impressed. I'll be using them again for sure. Considering that Musician's Friend sells Glissentars, but not the strings - this is a great resource.
I also got a response from Godin regarding several questions I had (about if strings should have come with the instrument, and about a creeking sound when tuning on several tuners). They referred me to Strings and Beyond for strings (I'd already ordered them by that time though), and didn't indicate if the strings should have come with it - I'll take that as a 'no'. They also suggested some graphite dust in the nut slots to cure the creeking - and also since that noise could have caused the the string breakage since tension between the nut and the tuner could cause this problem, it's exactly the spot where the break occurred - anyway, I used a pencil to coat the string slot in the nut, and this cleared up the creeking. I've heard that Godin isn't so responsive to e-mail (by others posting their experience), however they responded the next business day - so, great job on their part.
Now to find a decent playing, cheap electric guitar to make a six steel string fretless from.
