Re: Gibson Les Paul Black Beauty, ser. No 1 4880

:Is the number stamped on?
If it is it might be a '71
LP Customs started in 1954... in 1957-58-59 they had humbuckers instead of single -coil p/us...not absolutely sure if they were offered in 60 like the sunbursts were

hope that helps

TS9

My old Tubescreamer TS9 is dead.
It works ok in bypass-mode but when ON I cannot get any signal through.
Is there anyone who can help me with advice of how to repair it.

Re: TS9

This sounds serious.Try to locate a guy who repairs pedals cause this can be tricky.Depending on the cost, it might be better to get a new reissue model.They're not bad.
Good Luck

Re: 1935 Gibson

I just found my father's 1935 L-7 Gibson guitar for which he paid $480 brand new. It's in rather good condition with one serious flaw (a 3/4" exterior split on the wall at the bottom of the sound box. It's missing the pick guard but otherwise is in excellent condition in the original case. It does, of course, show the usual dings, light surface scratches and wear symptoms from heavy use (my father was a big band guitarist in the 30s who stored it decades ago when arthritis took his hands). Is this of any desire or worth?

Gretsch White Falcon-gold sparkle trim

I have searched high and low for the gold sparkle trim material that Gretsch used on their white falcons guitars.
I can't believe that someone out there doesn't know the where-abouts of some of that material.
The material was originally used as drum covering material(and still is as I understand).
I have been able to aquire a similar material, but it is more copper in color than gold.
I need to do some repair to my guitar, and I need an exact match.
Can anyone help?

pedals

What make of distortion pedal would you recomend for my first? I have been playing five months and am quite good.
Thanx.

Re: pedals

If you want a good,cheap distortion,try the Ibanez Smash-Box (SM-7).I love mine.Electro-Harmonics Big Muffs are cool,the Pro-Co Rat's a little cheesy,but very good.Remember,overdrive and distortion are not quite the same thing.Had the Boss Metal Zone,didn't like it very much.Try before you buy!
Good Luck

buzzing strings on your guitar...

Hi,

I had a similar problem a while ago on my Ibanez acoustic. urned out after a string swop and several weeks of frustration that one of the machine heads had a loose capstan key ( the nut that you hold onto when you tune the guitar - the handle ), and all I had to do was replace the machine head, which luckily was of the single unit type. While I was waiting for the replacement, I simply wound a rubber band around the loose handle, and all the vibrations stopped ! I din't know if this will help, but I can remember the intense frustation trying to find an odd noise on an otherwise healthy guitar!!
Good luck,

Music (classical guitar)

I'm trying to find information on the scientific approach on music, Pythagoras's relation to music. What I'm trying to do is relate music, art and music together. Also phycology and music, anything on color and music. I do have some information, but I need as much as I can find. Any help out there will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Music (classical guitar)

I'm not sure this will be of any help but have you heard of the book "An Eternal Golden Braid"? It looks closely at the music of JS Bach, the art of Escher and the numerology of Godel.

Music Pycology

I noticed on a website that they were talking about an experiment that involed different notes... they would play the first note in the left ear, and then the same note an octave higher. The result was that the human mind consieved it to be the full octave with all the notes in between.I have yet to try this.

Electric guitar maintenance

Hi all,...
Could anybody please give me advise on electric guitar maintenance ? What should be done and what be avoided ? Can I use a baby oil for protecting the metal parts from rust , or for cleaning the body from dust ?
Many thanks.

Re: Electric guitar maintenance

When not in use,put it in the case.Loosen the strings. Wipe down fret-board.Use lemon oil to clean the body. Try not to leave it in the sun.Let a pro set up your neck if you're unsure.
Good Luck

Lemon oil guitar cleaning

Not everyone agrees with using lemon oil to clean your guitar.

ALL Peavey guitar owners:
The Peavey Floyd Rose licensed trem has a major design flaw!
The screws that hold the fulrum ( metal piece that holds the springs to the trem) to the bridge are TOO SHORT and can strip out if you use the trem a lot.

How i can find scales that fits over power chord riffs...HELP!!!

HI!
I play electric guitar from three years..
I can play scales very fast...but i have many problem playing the solos...
I would ask to you how i can search some scales to make instead of the solos in the songs...
for example: I could play the rythmic part of the metallica's song " motorbreath" but i can't make the solo.I heard that the solos of the metallica album "kill'em all" are only some pentatonic scales..but how i can found that scale?
In motorbreath during the solo the rythmic guitar make this riff:
D--6----------------6--6----------------6-----
A--4--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--4--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--6-6
E------------------------------------------4-4
I consider this powerchords as C# and G# major chords..
I search a scale that fits in this 2 chords and i found a large list of scales as:C#maj,C#maj bebop,c#dominant bebop,C phrigian,Ebem Dorian..and lots more,but none pentatonic.
My questions are:
How i can consider powerchords?(like normal major chords?)
To solo i can simply make one of the scales that i found..but wath's the best to use?
How i can use a pentatonic scale over a lot of powerchords?
And definitely..How i can find scales that fits over riffs composed by a lot of powerchords?
Please answer me!!
I hope that my questions are clear..
Bye and thanks!!

start simple

Allright, first of all you have to remember that pentatonic means 5 notes. Those same five notes are part of both major and minor scales (known sometimes as Ionian and Aeolian.) Also keep in mind that usually (but not always!) the first and last chord of a song shows you what key you are in, if no key changes occur. In a normal 5th (3 note barre) chord, you are already playing some of the notes out of not only the pentatonic. for the key of E, E G A B D E works all over the place for E minor pentatonic. The E5 chord is E B E. Work at it, and it will start to make sense.
