comment Edge Zero II tremolo not parallel to the guitar body . Help needed?
It's not as clear as it needs to be. Picture please. No bridge is ever 'parallel' to the body, as lower strings are thicker so that part will be higher.

comment Why is a note sometimes a 4th and sometimes an 11th?
@MichaelScottCuthbertThanks. Where does that leave us ? In lil' ol' England, the 'rock' C6 has always been called C6,(although it rarely occurs in 'rock' songs), C13 being a different beast entirely. Never, ever heard of C65, but I've only played for 55yrs... Maybe American Classic isn't aligned with Western Classic ?

@MichaelScottCuthbert - I guess you mean a 6/3 chord voicing, as in 1st inversion. But that gets confusing, as there's a 6/4 as the 2nd inversion. Neither one to me constitutes a '6th' chord.They make a major triad only.So, what notes do you say make up a C6, for example? I still maintain it's C,E,G and A, whether Classical or not.

comment Low E buzz troubleshooting
If it's an electro-acoustic, with a piezzo bridge, would pieces of paper affect the pick up's propensity to pick up?

@MichaelScottCuthbert - 'a chord built on the 6th' - C/E is a Cmaj with its 3rd at the bottom - not a 6th in sight.Unless you count C as the 6th of E, which is a min6th.
