i need help with my ES-335


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


i own a sunburst gibson es-335, and just got back from a trip that lasted two and a half weeks. i got this tip from the guitar shop in which i bought my guitar, that said that when you are going to play the guitar after more than two weeks that it rested unplayed, than you should tune all the strings 2 whole tones down before playing.


can someone tell me if it's true, and do you have any other advices for me before i strat playing my axe again?


the guitar remaind in the case at home this whole time, untouched.

Can't say I've heard of this either. In my experience, the balance between string tension and the truss rod takes a while to settle down after any large change in tension. If the instrument is mechanically sound, I think it's best to keep it at correct pitch at all times.
