Gibson SG tone control

Got an '72 sg from a pawn shop. Sounds great thru my POD. The tone controls seem to work only from about 0 to 4. anything above that seems to be about the same brightness. Bad pots? I think they are 500k and the caps are .022uf. Any hints? Nature of the beast?

im thinking of buying the bc rich gj series mocking bird?

what do ya think?

Re: im thinking of buying the bc rich gj series mocking bird?

B.C. Rich guitar's are great if you want to play heavy metal stuff. A word of warning though, don't get a guitar with a tremelo bridge if you want to change tunings or string gauges often (I learned this the hard way). Other good guitars would be Ibanez-SC (I own this one. Extremly good guitar with a fixed bridge.), Jackson guitars, or ESPguitars.

Re: Hamer Scarab Question.

Ben,

I own four Hamers. They are the best guitars in my colllection. I have never played a Scarab but Hamer is the only bramd of guitar that I would buy sight unseen. I have purchased two from eBay without actually playing or seeing them and they are incredible. Go For It!

why not used guitars?

Hello everyone, I love the guitar in particular its electric form and I have two questions. First, I don't know where to start really. I don't have enough money or time to sign up for day time guitar lessons. Sencondly, from what I have gathered, it's not a good idea to try to learn how to play a guitar on a used piece. Is this true and if so why?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Re: why not used guitars?

You may start learning by yourself, using books, info from the web, advices from a friend or somebody, but soon you'll reach a point in which you'll need an instructor. I recommend you try to find one, but take it easy and keep on moving while you can.
About used guitars, they're not a problem if the guitar is in good conditions; if you buy one, make sure that it's good. Get some advice before buying.
Sorry for my bad english, hope you'll understand and good luck.

What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

I want real heavy sounding pickups for my Ibanez-SC. Something that might sound anything like Slipknot or Mudvayne would be great. I'm thinking about getting a set of EMG-85's. Would these work why, why not.

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

the EMG-85 is great for really hevy sounding but if you try and go back to light sounding songs (blink 182 e.t.c) it will suck

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

Hi there!!
I´ve got a Yamaha rgx Drop 6 and I change both pickups and I put two EMG 81 and it sounds more brutal than the EMG 85. 85´s is for music like slayer, for example... for brutal death metal put two emg 81 and start to suffer. Hail from south of Europe!!! Stay sick !!

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

TAKE YOUR MUDVAYNE&SLIPKNOT CDS AND BREAK THEM. OPEN YOURSELF TO STEELY DAN,CREAM,TOY CALDWELL,ALLMAN BROS.,BRIAN WILSON['PET SOUNDS'AND AFTER]FOR ABOUT 6 MOS.,AND SEE HOW YOU FEEL.

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

This is a reply to JOSH KUHN VOCALS\GUITAR FOR 'WHITE HOUSE's posting.
Just because I want pickups to play metal, doesn't mean I don't like other types of music, it's just what I play with my band. I play and listen to other things. I like just about everything, rock, jazz, blues, early rock, metal is only one of my likes. Despite what you may think I have open ears and an open mind.

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

Hell No! Slipknot and Mudvayne are the GREATEST BANDS EVER!

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

FOR F##K SAKE: I SERIOUSLY HATE PEOPLE WHO THINK THEIR MUSICAL TASTE IS WHAT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD IS MEANT TO LIKE!!! OH WELL, LET EM DIE ALONE, AT LEAT THEY MADE THEIR POINT!

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

DiMarzio's or SEmoyer Duncan, distortion. But only use one,on one guitar or it will sound like shits.

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

Mick from slipknot (arses copying machine head who were crap in the first place) uses EMG's and says he wouldn't play a guitar without them.
Hope this helps.

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

Get an EMG Zack Wylde set, which is two humbuckers.

An EMG 81 for the bridge pickup and an EMG 85 for the neck pickuo. You can get almost any sound you want out of this set, and the EMG 81 is great for heavy ass metal shit. I believe this set is what the Mudvayne guitarist uses on his Les Paul.

Re: What pickups would be good for metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne).

EMG-81 was the greatest piece of equipment i have added to my iceman (ibanez). go for it.
