G-force battery / charger question

Dear all,

I have a quesiton to the fellow G-force users. What happens with the LED on you charger once you plug it to the battery (while having the charger still not plugged in the electricity socket)?

Mine lights up green and I am assuming this should not happen. Talking to Tronical support they have recommended getting a new charger which I did but it behaves exactly the same so I will most likely have to replace the battery but I just want to double check with the community that this by any chance isn`t a standard behaviour...

Thank you!

hi there, thanks for the answer!

well unfortunatelly it seems by talking to the tronical support that while the charger is unplugged from the el. socket, there should be no light on. I will however try to discharge it completely and then I`ll see how it behaves when I plug it into the charger...

Can I ask you what tuners did you swap it with or did you end up selling the guitar altogether? Reading about the g-force you seem to be the person using it the longest, what was your experienece with it then?

Snowii,

I still have the guitar. I replaced the tuners with regular Grovers. 

Before buying the LP Less+ in 2015, my experience with G Force was on demo guitars in shops. That was not a good introduction.

Once I bought the guitar I determined to give the G Force a good try. I quickly adopted the 'one string at a time' option of tuning. I never bothered with alternative tunings. I gigged the guitar and never had a problem with the G Force until 3 1/2 years on (at home) the tuners got confused and could not settle. I powered it down & restarted it again and it behaved properly again. That one problem decided me to change them out. I did this because I didnt want to risk this happening on a gig. Had it not been a working guitar I would probably still be using the G Force. 

The main thing I miss about the G Force is changing strings. Its so quick and easy.

Great, thanks a lot for the summary, merciful-evans!

I am slowly shifting to "one string at the time" and we actually do use a few different tunings (pretty much the reason to give g-force a shot) so I will see how it holds up in that environment but sometimes it seems to be a bit confused for sure, definitely not a 100% thing...

I haven`t experienced a strings change yet so it will be me consulting manual when the time comes but from the videos I`ve seen it seems fairly straight forward...

In my early days of playing I changed tunings constantly on my acoustic guitar. It used to wear the string out pretty quick. I typically went through a set of strings every week. I certainly couldn't make them last 2 weeks. Maybe strings are better these days? I talking of the 70s here.
