brands

I'm in a band and i want to play electric guitar and i was wondering what the best brands were. Please speak from personal experience...if there's a brand that i should ovoid please tell me...

Thanxz for the help!!
Love alwayz...

Re: brands

There is no clear cut Good and Bad. Many good and many bad brands exist. Even within the "good" brands, there are "bad" models. And, some of the "bad" brands have had a few great models!

Hint: Gibson and Fender (the kings of the hill) would have never gotten to where they are now if they had not essentially invented the blueprint of the electric guitar or had consistently produced duds over the past 50 years. The likes of PRS, Modulus, Parker, Guild, MusicMan, and G&L would have never gotten to where they are if they hadn't produced a more innovative or better-built product (albeit at a higher price). And, the likes of ESP, Epiphone, Ibanez, Yamaha, Jackson, Schecter, and Fernandez would have never gotten to where they are today without delivering a price-competitive quality product.

acoustic guitar sound holes

Where can I find decals for the sound hole or are they handmade?

Re: acoustic guitar sound holes

I would not be surprised if stickers are used on "economy" acoustic guitars, but on any more-expensive brands like Martin, Gibson, Taylor, Guild, etc., you have a soundhole rosette, which fits into a very fine little circular channel that is routed out around the soundhole. The rosette is glued into the channel -- typically these days with superglue.

Using a Bass amp for Guitar...

I like the idea of getting a warmer sound through using a bass amp. Now is this a good idea? I heard that you shouldn't use overdrive with a bass amp, which kinda defeats the object a little for what I want it for...
What are the pros and cons of using this setup?

Re: Using a Bass amp for Guitar...

The only component in a bass amplifier rig that may not handle 6-string guitar distortion particularly well -- and this would be over a long period of time -- would be the speaker(s).

Compared to guitar speaker cabinets, bass bins have speakers that are optimised mostly for low-frequency output. Any decent bass speaker can take quite a bit of "abuse" such as overdriven distortion, but a guitar produces more high frequency output than a bass does and bass speaker voice coils aren't going to take *high* volume clipping from guitars over time as well as a speakers designed for guitar applications will be able to. The result is that the voice coils in some bass speaker drivers will eventually fail. If you use a guitar cabinet with a bass amp, this problem won't arise.

Over the years, many blues players have used bass amplifier heads along with guitar speaker cabinets.
