I've owned my black/red AF-40V since it was first released. I enjoy it, but was disappointed with the light wood and lack of sustain. The wonderbar is good, if you are into bars. I'm not. The locking nut keeps this beast in tune very well.

I have a wonder bar on my tele deluxe and it works great. It is really accurate and with the lock nut keeps in tune perfectly.
I am writing beacuse I am also looking for the tromolo bar in chrome. If you happen to run into one In your search for the whole unit, please let me know.
Thanks!

Question? Do ya write the words first or the chords?

Help.

Re: Question? Do ya write the words first or the chords?

Either one. It doesn't matter. If you have a cool progression already try feeling the mood of the song and develop some lyrics accordingly. Or, if you have some lyrics written, slap a good progression on it.

Re: Question? Do ya write the words first or the chords?

I find it easier to start with chord progressions first.Since the chord tones usually dictate whats going to happen in the tune anyway.When I put the chords down first,a melody jumps out at me sooner or later.Wrote a tune based on one line.Took me 36hrs. to lay it down(verses,bridge,hooks,rythyms).But thats just me.Some people are better at lyrics/melodies than others.
Good Luck

Re: Question? Do ya write the words first or the chords?

:
Either way. I usually end up singing some nonense over a riff to get some meter going. Keep notebooks of cool phrases or verses. Sometimes you can patch words to riffs using your "archives".

Re: Question? Do ya write the words first or the chords?

: Help.

It depends on what inspires me. I have written several songs and it's always the music or chords which seem to come out of my head first. In fact, I have no words to any of these tunes.

CAN i use baby oil to polish my fretboard?

wat's the best oil to polish my fretboard?

Re: CAN i use baby oil to polish my fretboard?

: wat's the best oil to polish my fretboard?

If it's Rosewood,it's an oily wood. Don't bother. If it's Ebony,oil won't penetrate it. If it's Maple,you'll rot it. BTW, why do you want to oil it????????

Re: CAN i use baby oil to polish my fretboard?

:the best oil for a fretboard is pure lemon oil.You should be able to find some at the grocery store.

gig-bag

Would you take the risk to put both your guitars (strat & tele) in a double gig-bag? Or is it safer in 2 separate hard-cases? I'm looking for a way to reduce car-space, but I am afraid that they are much more vulnerable. (you know how it goes on the road...)

make your own humbucker

to get humbucking on a strat with 3 singlecoils I need to reverse the polarity of the middle pickup so it humbucks with one of the others.... HOW do I reverse the polarity of the single coil pickup?
Someone please help,
JD

Re: make your own humbucker

the middle pickup on a strat is wired to be out of phase with the bridge or neck pickups in possitions 2 & 4 on the 5 position switch, giving some bucking effect.

Re: make your own humbucker

But can I rewire it myself or is it a pro job?

guitareffects-unit; can I make it myself???

I have got 4 different guitareffects-pedals, each from a different brand, size and adaptors. (zoom 505, Martin Hot Drive'n Boost, Cry Baby Wah and Roland tunerpedal). How can I link them together into a practical, small unit? Can I make it myself?

Re: guitareffects-unit; can I make it myself???

best plan is to build a pedal board, lay your pedals out on a piece of card, position them the way you want, at this stage its a good idea to invest in a good quality power supply unit, guitar shops or electrical diy stores can advise you on that.
then cut the card to the right size, get your local timber store to cut you a bit of 3/4" ply wood the same size, a coat of mat black paint makes it look nicer, you then need to attach the pedals to the board, double sided tape, or sticky back velcro are best, connect the pedals up with patch leads, wire in the power supply, done.

Re: BeeGees are finally back!

You wouldn't happen to work for an internet marketing group do you? Release dates, links? Their biggest fan or paid to post? You decide.
