Re: Value & year of my Goya G-380.

no

: I've got a Goya G-380 Jumbo steel string flat top, ebony black trimmed in pearl white, with inlay on the fret board, bridge, back, and inlayed "Goya" insignia. It looks similiar to the Gibson "Everly Brothers" model. Trying to learn when it was made & it's value. Any help?

Re: Jackson Soloist... good guitar? Also: 1 humbucker vs. 2 humbuckers

: : Just wondering what everyone's opinion is. Also, what is the difference between having one humbucker and two humbuckers? You can only use one at a time, correct? Thanks for any info.

well I dont know what their talking about cause I have a soloist and it is the best guitar I have ever owned....it has a great feel...I love the neck and I like the tone quite a bit. my intonation is perfect....I love everything about the Jackson Soloist....although I play stuff like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani....I think it is a very agressive players guitar....If you like stuff like that than the soloist is the best insturment.....(that and an esp) well thats all I have to say.......there awesome

Re: Jackson Soloist... good guitar? Also: 1 humbucker vs. 2 humbuckers

: : Just wondering what everyone's opinion is. Also, what is the difference between having one humbucker and two humbuckers? You can only use one at a time, correct? Thanks for any info.
Jackson is making an import series from Japan that structurally is very good. Not very expensive at all. I believe it's based upon the Jackson Dinky model. Get it, gut it, Replace your pick-ups with higher end Seymour Duncans. This should give you a great guitar at a price well under what an original jackson soloist cost. I prefer the dinky's neck over the soloist neck. There is an amount of hype over the soloist. Do check out Ed Romans guitar site for some great Jackson info. Hope this helps

: I had a similar guitar, a couple years back, and I hated it. The neck was too hard, and needed refretting, only a couple of years after purchase. The double-locking tremolo was a nightmare. I had it with one single coil, and a humbucker. I liked this configuration, though Jackson pickups suck bigtime. You can only use one pickup at a time, this is because the 1980's style design that Jackson can't get off of, doesn't include the very cool coil tapping feature, that should be on every 3 pickup guitar. There are better guitars, then the overpriced, overhyped, Soloist. Good luck

Re: Jackson Soloist... good guitar? Also: 1 humbucker vs. 2 humbuckers

The Jackson Soloist SL1 is an excellent guitar in all areas. It's build quality is amazing, it's tone is sweet and the neck is silky smooth. The sound from the Seymours Duncans makes it one versatile guitar. This is not just a Hard Rock/Metal guitar. Buy one, you won't regret it...I haven't:)

Re: Neoclassical Shred/Classical Scales

where ever there's an h in pepes' scale examples
replace that with a "b" he must of had a typo problem
but his scales are accurate, Yngwie is all about
natural minor, harmonic minor, diminished and phrygian
scales and modes respectively. Try any search on
guitar lessons and you're more than likely to find
these scales in tablature format.

Re: Looking for advise from Experianced Guitar Owners and Players

[The body of this post has been reconstituted from replies so it may differ from what was originally written.]

My feeling is that Gibson type guitars are more forgiving(sound-wise)to a beginner.Fenders have a very clear,bright character with less sustain.If you dont know what your doing they can sound very harsh

Re: Looking for advise from Experianced Guitar Owners and Players

: I'm a newbie at electric guitars and the only info I've got about them is from guitar dealers (and who knows how trust worthy they are).. I'm looking for a guitar 800 bucks or under and am not sure what to get. I like a guitar that can get a really good classic rock sound. I was thinking of a Gibson LP (not gibson epiphone) but most are more than 800. The only thing that is around there is The Les Paul Lites but I don't know anything about there quality.
: :Which is better sounding and more reliable Gibson or Fender?? When I asked that to the guitar guy he said they are both completely different "animals" but I think one of them must be more preferred.... Could somebody help me ??? If you know any other type of guitar in the 800 dollar range let me know.. but am mostly considering LPs or Fenders...

Who do you listen to? What bands/players do you like? I can offer suggestions based on this.

Les Paul Original

: Where can I obtain the value of a Gibson "Les Paul Original" Electric Guitar? It was made in or about 1974 0r 75, and purchased in 1976. This guitar has had only one owner and in near mint condition.

Re: GIBSON SERIAL NUMBERS

: I'm not quite sure if ?'s advise is right if it's a vintage Gibson... or... I could be wrong...lol
: Anyway, you could check out http://www.gibson.com/downloads/bluebook/GibsonSERIALNUMBERS.pdf but need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view it. Have fun and good luck.

S.D.Curlee Guitars

I talked to Randy Curlee (founder of S.D.Curlee Guitars) and he is sending me an article that sums up his company and guitars. I do have a rare brochure I will quote some for all to see:
Solid Honduras Pattern, Brass Strap Buttons, Adjustable Steel truss rod, Pickups, Mahogany Body, Guitar - Super Distortion humbucker and single coil high output, DiMarzio pickups, Adjustable Bass Bridge, Brass Control and Neck Anchor Plates, Individual tone and volume Controls, Pickup Selector Switch. If anyone is interested I can post more info, specs, etc.

Re: marshall cabinets

There are three basic Marshall cabs (not two)

1) A 1960AV cab has "vintage 30's" (70watts each). It is known as a vintage cab (Slash, Via, etc.) Hard rock sound with great tone.

2) 1960A, the standard or regular cab which has 75 watt speakers and a strait Marshall sound. Handles a lot of power and bass, good for general use.

3) 1960AC "classic" or "greenback" cab has 25watt celestions. (Van Halen, Hendrix, Cream, older smoother sound) The DSL overpowers this cab a bit.

I've tried all three with the DSL 100, I like the Vintage 30's the best with that amp. Lots of tone however not much treble.
The greenbacks sound like they are going to melt down -- totally saturated sound. Cool, in a way, but be ready to blow a speaker or two.
The standard 1960a cab sounds great with the DSL for all around modern heavy rock.

P.S. I have a Marshall DSL 100w head for sale and lots of used guitars at www.gtrkev.com
