Humbucker guitar or 3 single coiled pickups for jazz/blues and rock

I am thinking of getting a Fender Standard Mexican Fat Strat becasue i am planing to play the guitar for my school jazz band. I was looking for adive to see if i should get a fat srtat(humbucker) or just get a standars strat withot a humbucker. They play some soft jazz and blues and songs around that area. I heard them play "do the hustle"(by Van McCoy) and some other songs like that. I would appreciate it if anyone culd help me!!!

Re: Humbucker guitar or 3 single coiled pickups for jazz/blues and rock

I would recomend that you get a strat with 3 single coil pickups because they give you more of a blues jazzy sound. If you use a humbucker it will give you a more heavy rock sound. You can still get one with a humbucker but set the selector switch so only the two single coil pickups pickup the sound. So than you will have a guitar for jazz and rock. That is if you want a fender. For the best blues/jaz sound i would recommend a Gibson es-335, But those are pretty pricey. Hope this helps.

mesa boogie mkiv

please help, Ive just bought a mkiv boogie and I am made up with over drive channels but clean channel is not so good.(All this about sounding like a fender is not happening)I have tryed factory settings but not impressed. anyone getting nice clean tone from one of these please let me know settings. The amp is loaded with a EV, the valves are jan phillips (these are low gain valves so should aid the clean channel). The guitar is ajohn birch fitted with humbuckers.

Samick underbridge electro-acoustic conversion

Bought a samick underbridge electro conversion kit which i have successfully fitted to a martin backpacker.Only thing I dont know is what wires go where since i had to snip them to get it in and forgot to take note of what went to where. Does anyone know the wire colour code cos there is an unbalanced 6mm jack out and a balanced xlr out of the same board

Metallica advice

If anyone has questions about metallica. I'm pretty sure i will know the answer so e-mail me if you have any questions about the gear or the sound they get. or just questions in general.

Re: Metallica advice

Hi!
I have a 15 year old who is a budding bass player and currently has a Samick L1100(?), an Alverez and an Explorer.

I'm thinking of getting him a new bass for his birthday and I would appreciate any advice on something special.

He is an avid Metallica fan and showing some promise as a player.

Thanx!

Re: Metallica advice

Well I would suggest that if he likes older metallica that you might wanna get him a "rickenbacker 4003" those are rather expensive though they run around $1,500. That is the bass that Cliff used. He used a big muff distortion and a morley wah pedal to get the tone he used. Newstead used the same effects. I'm not sure what bass he uses or used but i hope this helps some, A really nice bass is a ernie ball music man stringray 4-string or 5-string, both great basses, those in the $1,000's, if you want a good bass for cheap i would say a spector those are about $500 or so.

unfortunately, studios are the only places to find the "true" sound of these albums. from seeing metallica live, there best sound has been found on recordings.

Guitar Books

I'm a Classical and Jazz player, but my students want popular songs with guitar riffs, from other generas. Any book recommendations?

Re: Guitar Books

I would recommend the "learning in the style of" collections. I'm not sure if they have books but they defitely have videos. They are excellent

the great gnw give away, question

What if you only have 2 of the token things, i got the ones for issue numbers 146 and 147.

Poor Playing

I have been playing for 2 yrs now I can play a few songs (or thought I could). When I hear other people playing it sound a lot better I have asked them why and they say they alternate what strings they hit on each strum. Is there any more info on how to do this

Cheers

Lee

ovation guitar preference

I'm an amateur singer/picker who recently had a 1970's ovation balladeer stolen. I've been watching ebay and currently have 3 choices. There are two anniversary models and one 1967 balladeer. I think the anniversary models are late 1970's. I want another ovation and a legend is out of my price range. I'd like some feedback on these choices. Thanks
