    CE24 Owners: tightness?

    I also took the guitar in to my setup guy and he noticed a definite tightness, he felt it as well. He first suggested different string brands, he was loathe to suggest going down to 9s as that would need a whole setup, etc. But that might be what I end up doing if I stay with the guitar. Though...

    I'll try the truss rod. I've lowered the saddles, hoping that would do the trick. No luck, hehe. But the action is sexy though ;)

    CE24 Owners: tightness?

    I feel most in the upper frets. Almost like hitting a wall when you get past 12. Not just bends, simply fretting the notes, I need to push a bit harder. The action is the same as on the SE.

    CE24 Owners: tightness?

    Well, I'm just about ready to give up on this guitar. I've tried all the normal things (setup, string type, bridge height, saddles, removing a spring, etc) and it still feels tight. The next step would be something drastic or expensive. The interesting thing is that I own an SE Custom 24 and I...

    CE24 Owners: tightness?

    I do generally play Gibsons, but my SE doesn't feel as tight to me. In fact, I love playing it. To be clear, it's not a Trem tightness, I feel, it's the tautness of the strings that feels off to me.

    CE24 Owners: tightness?

    Lots to absorb here. Very appreciative of the help! I'll be visiting my tech tomorrow and I think I'm going to have him look at the relief and/or go with 9s, I'll start there. Then I think I'll try removing the 4th spring. Question, though, how do I balance the springs with only 3 of them...

    CE24 Owners: tightness?

    I think this is more a CE thing than a string gauge thing. I have 10s on all my other guitars and I love them, but somehow on the CE those 10s feel like 11s or 12s. Very tight.

    Hadn't considered removing a spring. Interesting. I'm open to changing the gauge, as well, as I'm really loving everything about the guitar except for that one thing and tone can be tweaked, comfort is a lot harder to achieve (for me).

    CE24 Owners: tightness?

    Hm, so where can I grab myself a Mannmade? Do I need to ship the guitar or can my guy swap out the trem himself/myself?

    Think the trem could be the issue? Everything on my CE24 is stock, so I've not made any adjustments, yet.

    CE24 Owners: tightness?

    Hey all, been playing my CE24 now for about 6 months and I love it. I have noticed though that it just feels tight. I've got 10s on there and they feel like 11+. Has anyone else experience this? I'm considering putting 9s on them to help out, thoughts? Thanks!

    I didn't wait long (NGD)

    So far so good. I've been constantly surprised by the playability and sustain. Overall, it's fantastic. If I had to nitpick, I wish the pups were a touch warmer? But I'm reaching at this point lol.
