Re: cheapest way to buy

one is able to touch and smell, maybe even taste the guitar before considering to buy it. also, it takes much time jumping around while waiting for it to magically appear, and if it's not what you've hope for, time is wasted! (it's really not as horrible as it sounds though...)

re-painting a guitar

I need some tips on removing paint and re painting a guitar.

Re: re-painting a guitar

I was recently at the Hamer guitar factory. They said they use a product called QRB to strip guitars when they do refinishing. It used to be available by infomercial. You can probably find a website for it. Repainting is much more difficult. You might want to see if you can get it repainted at a car repair shop. Since most guitars have auto paint on them.

Carl: Look up 'Guitar Re-ranch'
or something. They have it all, for refinishing. Even spray-can nitrocellulose laquers in Fender colors.
Look also on the Fender Discussion Page.

12 string acoustic guitar

John Joyce and myself are interested in linking with anyone who plays 12 string guitar and uses it as a solo instrument ( not strumming !) We are also willing to answer any questions anybody may have about the instrument. Our site is http://www.fret-dancer.com
We have also launched our own label FRETDANCER and are looking for suitable product to release.

Re: 12 string acoustic guitar

I play a Taylor 750 12 string and a Takamine 12 string. Play both fingerstyle and flatpick. Also play 6 string, but you can't beat the 12. Just recently got started with alternate tuning and I gotta tell you, 12 strings will absolutely blow a 6 away. I say this even though I also play several brands of 6, including Taylor. Gotta love it. I have one question for you though, what do you know about recording the 12 using an 8 track hard disc recorder like Boss? I'm currently using a Yamaha 4 trk tape rec. and not really liking the sound I'm getting back. Using Shure 4.1 mikes through a SoundDesign mixer, and spent a lot of time trying to get the proper placement for the mikes. The sound just isn't there. Any advise would be gratefully accepted. Thanks, Keith

Re: Reply to Keith/12 string guitar

Hi Keith,
Recording a 12 string guitar as with any acoustic guitar is always a matter of trial and error. The method John and I use, bearing in mind we are entirely different styles of players ( John plays blues and I have developed an 'Orchestral Style ' ) is as follows.
I fing direct hard disc recording of acoustics totally unsatisfactory. The transients are to harsh for starters. We use AT4033 as stereo pairs going onto a 1 inch Tascam 24track with noise reduction in when recording and our when mixing. We also use a 24 bit Ultramiser for mastering and use our own program derived from it's internal presets. The art is to get it big without loosing the natural clarity of the instrument. I play a Paul Brett Aria 12 string, very rare these days to fing one and John Plays a Guils F212. He also has a rather unique nylon strung 12 string made by Ushida especially for him. Also , it depends on the strings . We use La Bella silk and steel and Earthwood bronze. Hope this is of help. Send us a tape of some of your stuff. Finally , we agree , 12 string guitar is the ultimate solo instrument , it goes way beyong anything the six string can produce by way of personal satisfaction to the player and listener.
Thamks for your contact,
Paul Brett

marshall jcm 900

anyone own one of these or know any pros and cons 'bout em. im thinking of buying one

Re: marshall jcm 900

I own 3 JCM900's... I think that they are the best Marshalls ever made, depending on the style of music you are playing. I have two "High Gain Master Volume" heads, and one "High Gain Dual Reverb" head. The dual reverb is way more versitle, but the master volume has more punch than Mike Tyson... I can even get a great blues sound with the reverb head. If you are not concerned with reverb, or any kind of clean sound, go with a Master Volume, otherwise the Dual Reverb is the ticket.

Re: marshall jcm 900

I own a 50w 2500 and it is awesome. Lots of grunt but can be finessed more than you would be lead to believe.

Re: marshall jcm 900

: anyone own one of these or know any pros and cons 'bout em. im thinking of buying one
>>>Yeah, FB nailed it. I have the 2100 SL-X and that thing can be more versatile (not on the fly) than a lot of people give it credit for.

I've recently gotten into just plugging straight into the head and experimenting. So far, besides the usual heavy overdrive, I've gotten a better than 'decent' clean tone (my main guitar has had the tone control removed, so when I turn down the guitar's volume control it brightens-up. This is a huge factor) and a close approximation of AC/DC's plexi sound.

I've just started so I'll update as time goes on. Anyhow, I would recommend the 900 series.

Re: marshall jcm 900

: anyone own one of these or know any pros and cons 'bout em. im thinking of buying one

Its a good amp mate, lovely sound - especially with my strat. ive owned one for a year now. I got a 2 * 12 cab with it. Its got good distortioin, and a lovely clean sound in my opinion, though when using clean at high volumes the crunch function kicks in and makes the sound more distorted - a wee set back.
I have the dual reverb 100w head - the dual reverb is a useful addition.

If you want a more classic softer tonal blues/old rock sound, the jcm 800 is the one (900 more harsh), my mate has one, and i like it, i'm thinking about part ex'ing my head for a jcm 800 head.

all the best,

paddy leese.

JCM 900 Head's

I have owned one for about 2 years. I even sold it once and bought it back!!! Mine is a 90 or 91, it was the first year for the 900's. It came with EL-34 instead of the 6l6's that come in them now. This head is completly stock, but everyone who has heard it swares that it has been modified. It works well in all situations. I pesonally play Metal(in fact its what Kerry King from Slayer uses), but just tune it down a little, and you got Blues, or, God forbid, Country :(. As mentioned is one of the other responces, it's hard to get crystal clean at high volumes. Giging out semi-regularlly, it was been very reliable(never failed me yet!!! Another feature that they have is the ability to switch from 100 watts to 60 watts, witch come in handy when playin a smaller club, you get the full blown tone at a lower vol. The louder you crank it, the better it sounds!!! I tried the TSL 2000's, and they have more Gain, but they seem like they are mass produced, and not as trust worthy. Overall, I give the amp an A to A+.......Briam

Re: JCM 900 Head's

i've got a jcm900 sl-x,and it's really cool!
and i've got a question:Can i switch it to 60 w?Please give some information about it !Send it to my email4Thanks
