1 giffenf 6 months ago I’d decided to give guitar modeling a break and go back to just playing through pedals into an amp, at least for now (the pendulum swings back and forth with me). So I took my 6120CG and Eastman T58/v to rehearsal last night with the Rackabilly rig, and, probably due to the novelty of the different tone, it all sounded great. But the Eastman just wouldn’t stay in tune. Discounting the insanely hot weather and the fact that I’d just put new strings on it that morning, nothing I did would keep it in tune.So I took it to the masters at TrueTone today and theorized it was nut bindage. They looked at it closely and concluded it wasn’t binding in the nut. Hmmm, but it won’t stay in tune, I implored. Then Paul Flynn, TrueTone co-owner and head of the repair shop, happened by and said “Look at the bridge.” Obvious, but hadn’t occurred to me. He looked at it and said of the tune-o-matic-style bridge “These look like the original notches, and they don’t fit the strings.” He proceeded to begin telling the tech what to do and I said “Sheesh, why didn’t I just buy a Tru Arc?” Paul stopped in mid-sentence and said “I have one...that I’m not using.” “Wanna try it?” Oh, hell yes. Instant delivery of a Tru Arc? Who wouldn’t go for that? It’s an aluminum model, with a bridge base, and fits quite nicely. Tuned it back up and voila. Tuning stability! Now I just have to order another one to replace it, and in the meantime, Friday’s show will be in tune!
