    A question on guitar adjustment.


    I have a GRG170DX and noticed an issue with my gat where it doesnt stay in tune. So I tightened the screws that hold the springs in the back of the guitar. As a result, the bridge now almost touches the body, but the guitar stays in tune much longer. Is it ok to keep it like this? I hope it wont harm the guitar. Do lemme know.

    Mankind evolved for TWO reasons:
    1) To enjoy the act of playing the Guitar.
    2) To enjoy the act of listening to the Guitar.

    Everything else, is just an illusion.

    Usually its said that you need to keep the bridge parallel to the body of the guitar. I dont think you could harm the guitar in anyway by keeping it differently, but i think it would be best if you take the guitar to a pro and have it set up right.
