help a brother out---new guitar bridge

i own a fender cyclone, it's body is like an old Mustang and kind of like a strat, so would it be possible to replace the crummy bridge with a tune-o-matic? im kinda new at this and im not sure what kind of bridge can go on what kind of guitar and stuff. if a tune-o-matic bridge cant go on it, what other kind of bridge do you recommend to keep it in tune and it will still fit on the guitar?

Re: help a brother out---new guitar bridge

hi, well i have to say that i dont own a cyclone, but i do know that it wont take a tuneomatic. why? well, a tuneomatic is just a bridge where as in your guitar it is a bridge and tailpiece. a strat bridge would probably fit but it would probably be the same... anything else i can think of would mean youd have to do work on the body, which you probably dont want to do. hope that helps a little... goodluck though!

Schecter PT Neck issue

An idiot friend of mine recommended I buy one of the new Schecter Diamond Series PT's, so idiot me did.
My problem is this: while the guitar sounds fine, the neck sucks ass. I also have a Fender Tele with an excellent neck, which leads me to my question:
If I buy a genuine Fender tele replacement neck, is it gonna fit the Schecter? And if not, is it possible to buy fender necks that aren't pre-drilled?

Thanx, Sam.

Cheap Gibsons - are they any good?

There are some cheap Gibson LPs ($500 or so) sold by Musicaiansfriend.com. Are they any good? What's the catch? I know you only get basic finishes and it looks like you don't get the curved body, but is that the only difference? Anybody have one?

Les Paul Information?

Hi, I recently bought a Les Paul Standard but without an amplifier to plug it in. I'd apreciate any info about what do the 2volume,2tone & the 3-way switch do on the sound of this babe.

Re: Les Paul Information?

Hey,
I am a proud owner of a Les Paul, and I know a little about the buttons. The three way switch is your
pickup selector. When it is at the top, you are using the pickup at the neck. When it's at the
middle, it's using both pickups, and at the bottom, it's using the bridge pickup. I think the bottom
one says rythm or treble on the little plastic cover. Your knobs are lined up a certain way. The
two on top are your volume and treble for the neck pickup, and the bottom two are for the bridge
pickup. This really allows for a lot of tonal flexibility which is one of the many things that makes
Les Pauls cool. Hope this helps!

Martin D35

A friend of mine has a 1976 (he thinks) Martin D35
serial number 327692 that is in fairly good shape. He
would like to know what it might be worth if he were
to sell it.
Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
It's actually a 1973. Depending on it's condition, it'll be worth anywhere from $900 to $1500. It would have to be in mint condition to fetch $1500. If it has normal wear and tear, I'd put it closer to $1200. $900 or less if it's got many cracks, repairs, unoriginal parts etc.

: Thank you

seting intonation on a hamer guitar that has a floyed rose

if any one knows how to due that would you email me aycgilbertny@aol.com

Re: seting intonation on a hamer guitar that has a floyed rose

There's a set of special tools required to assist with this, and I believe it comes with shims as well. I have not had much experience with the Floyd type, but I think the tools come with full instructions for use.
Check with your local music shop. I'm also starting to post tips on my web site at:
http://members.home.net/wilkatguitars
Take note that your bridge saddle at the bottom plain E string should measure 25 1/2" (assuming that's the scale length you have) from the front of the nut. The other saddles will normally be pulled back from this
point to compensate, and your top wound E string will be the furthest from the nut, as it requires the most compensation. See my tips about tuning problems, for a good method of tuning that may help until you can get the
Floyd tools to correct the problem.

Re: Rage Against The Machine Sound

turn everything to full blast! hahaha
Tom Morello is cool, but I bet he'd tell you to make your own sound with it so that there can be more "noise making guitarists" out there. Thats all he does man; plays a a bunch of funk riffs with some wah, then totally goes nuts fuckin' with his whammy,strings,neck he just goes apeshit and does all the crazy shit in the book!

if you have a metal zone with the instruction booklet, look in the booklet for a "funk" or "fuzz" or "overdrive" Tom uses pretty basic FX man. he is the simple type of guitarist. the "couple of pedals, amp, and a guitar" type of player.

Re: Rage Against The Machine Sound

does Morello use a Metal Zone pedal? I had one and it was far to percussive on the lows and nasal on the mids...the mid sweep is painful at best.
just curious.

Re: Rage Against The Machine Sound

Turn the distortion all the way down. The MT-2 is has a dual gain circuit, so you will still have tons of distortion even if the dist. knobb is all or most of the way down. All I can say about the equalization is that your gonna have to screw around with it. Keep your lows up to stay away from that thrash sound. I used to own a metal zone and I never liked the thrash sound that I got out of it. Thats me though. just screw around with it. Good luck. -Steve

Re: Rage Against The Machine Sound

I've got PODxt. How to get the guitar sound like Tom Morello's.
Also Cypress Hills' on "Amplified.
