Re: re-stringing sperzel tuners

: I've always played gibsons and strats with normal tuners, so the sperzels on my fly are a bit new to me. I've tried several methods of re-strining them, but with none of them I can say that i really stay in tune well. The only strings that really go out are the G and B. If you've got some advice, it would be greatly appreciated. . .

Re: re-stringing sperzel tuners

uhm... stick the string thru, tighten the lock securley, snip the strings, tune your guitar,
use your fingers to lightly stretch the strings, tune your guitar again, play.

how much more simple can it get. These tuners make life grand...

Re: i need worship chords ASAP!!!!

: i am a beginner on the acoustic guitar and i really need some help finding new chords to some songs i am playing for the school worship band. i need some simple, easy-to-learn chords with melody that isn't too high for a girl's voice (i'm an alto). the songs i need are:

: here i am to worship
: draw me close
: hungry (falling on my knees)
: i stand in awe
: o lord, you're beautiful
: jesus, lover of my soul

: it would be so helpful if anyone could give me even one of them, but help with as many as you can. i need these ASAP, but don't rush. thank you so much to anyone who can help out! God bless!

Re: Cleaning problem

: I have a lovely Gibson 335, but after using kyser by Dr Stringfellows to polish the body and pick ups etc the result is a horrible smear. Is there any way I can get rid of the smear to leave a nice polished finish. I have used this polish on my Epiphone les paul with no problems. Thanks for any advice.

Second reply - verdict's in!
I've gladly written to as many real experts as I know about this. Smart guys, who write books, and command respect, so no funnies here anyone ... thanks.

Most point to a book by Dan Erlywine, available through Stew Mac. Use a damp cloth with a little mild soap. Rinse with damp cloth & dry immediately with a soft dry cloth or towel. That's what I do ... and people laugh!

Until I invent my own guitar polish, I'm using Dunlop's formula 55. Again it's just a simple matter of having all the right stuff in it until something better comes along.

Sorry, watch those others with chemicals, oils & silicones. NO furniture polish or Armor All - I've done it, even used car wax. Call it research. Stick with a little soap when needed, and Jim Dunlop for the finishing touch.

Re: Seymour Duncan Pickups

: Where is the best (read: least expensive) place to buy Seymour Duncan pickups? How about Sperzel tuners? Thanks for the help. - Les

I bought a Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck Jr for my strat at Mars Music(Cherry Hill, NJ) for $65.00 Sam Ash had it for $79 and they were usually the best price. I got a duckbucker on E-Bay new for $31. try there!

Re: Seymour Duncan Pickups

: what is the best pickup to use to get the van halen sound?

: Jon O'Neill
Hello Jon,

I actually work with Seymour here in Santa Barbara,CA.
For the VH sound [early], EVH played lighter bodied Kramers with one humbucker in the bridge only. He needed a pickup that would give him a warm, smooth, fat tone without sacrificing clarity. Essentially a mid range push without the "mud". Seymour's answer was what became the SH-11 Custom Custom humbucker from the current product line. It is also available in a Trembucker version, which is spaced wider to accomdate the sting flare created [at the bridge] with a locking Floyd Rose type tremolo, the TB-11. This is all assuming that you're using a lighter body type guitar [alder, ash, etc.]. Everything changes if you are using a heavier guitar body.
See ya.

Re: Seymour Duncan Pickups Alnico pro II Humbuckers

Hi I am looking for a pair of alnico pro II Humbuckers, neck and bridge. New or used if the price is right :)

Re: Seymour Duncan Pickups

Re: where..??

Re: Seymour Duncan Pickups

Check out GuitarElectronics.com for most Duncan Pickups at low prices.

I've got 'em!

Hi! I just signed on with Seymour Duncan and will be stocking all the humbuckers, Trembuckers, Little 59's, JB Jrs...all of the favorites. Also the new SH13 Dimebucker and SH14 Custom 5. I'm a Blues player and my favorite Duncan humbuckers are still the '59 & JB, tho the Antiquity and Seth Lovers are great too. My favorite Duncan single coils would be the SSL-1, but my favorite Duncan Pickups for a Strat would be the Duncan SSL-1 neck & middleRW/RP & neck model JB Jr. for the bridge! A neck model JB Jr. used as a bridge pickup is still louder than SSL-1 neck and middle Strat pickups so I get a boost when I switch to the bridge pickup. And, to me, the JB Jr. N balances better volume wise with the middle pickup the the regular JB Jr. bridge.

Re: What do ya think of the Fender SRV stratocastor?

: It runs about $1300.00- Is it worth it or is there a better strat for blues and rock jams?

I'm cruisin' the old archives here for interesting strat topics. I could learn something.

Here, in this case, the Jimmy Vaughan model is an excellent axe for alot less $$$, and the Texas Hot Rod (formerly Roadhouse) might be the next best thing from the USA - except I take out the Texas Specials anyway and use something else.

But I personally like the Tex Mex pickups in the Jimmy Vaughan.

Re: How much would this old guitar be worth?

I have a 1972 Alvarez acoustic that my dad bought in college, played for about a year and a half, then didn't touch until I got interested about two years ago. I'm by no means an expert but the sound is phenomenal and I've had many real guitar players tell me that its one of the best they've played.
I was just curious what it might be worth. If you could let me know it would be greatly appreciated.
