Addition to the Family..

Recommended Posts

Went to a local music store and found a brand new Squier Stratocaster on sale for 100 bucks, so I naturally had to get it! Oh, and I got my first effects pedal-a Boss DS-1 destortion pedal. I'm gonna have some fun tonight!

You should be enjoying that. Make sure you get the action and relief setup. Since you bought it at a shop they made have already done that. Was it one hanging on the wall?

The action is the height of the strings above the fretboard. The relief is the bow of the fretboard. If you sight down the neck from the body to the neck it should look straight. The relief is adjusted with the truss rod and the action is adjusted with the bridge. Adjusting the truss rod can also affect the action. There are some sticky articles on the forum that explain this. Check them out in "Guitar Gear/Guitar Tech" forum.
