Re: NEWBIE GUITAR

yeah strats rock but before you buy, check out:
Aria MAC Series or similiar- about £200 new. Great looking, nice playin, will last. Great if your'e a beginner- you won't need to upgrade to soon...
Tanglewood "basic" series- can't remember name- but about £130 new, v good value.
Fender Squire series- but i've heard horror stories, so beware!
Fender Telecasters- nice,
also Epiphone Gibson, about £160 used, loads of my buddies have these!
Burns Guitars- discontinued (?) but cheaper than Fenders (about £230 used) and almost as good looking?
You might want a small practise amp- about £35-£60 new.

What is this thing worth?! HEEEELP!!!

Hi there!
Found an add in a paper that mometarily caught my eye;
"1973' Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Cherry red sunburst.
100%original guitar! Top condition. incl. hardcase."
What is this guitar worth? Somwhere around 1500$? I've heard that the early deluxe models are far better than the new ones. Anybody know the exact differende?
Another thing, how can I check how old the guitar is?
Is'nt it possible to read from the serial number on the back of the head?

Appreciate any help!

Recording Acoustic Guitar

I'm new to computer recording,having used a Fostex DMT-8, and recently the KORG D1600. Can I record acoustic guitar/vocals directly into my PC-I've S/blaster Live,Cakewalk Pro9 and Soundforge. And are my Shure SM57+58, plus AKG C1000 correct impedance to plug straight in?

blackness on strings

Alright, one thing that pisses me off is that black crud that forms on your strings after a while of playing. I know what causes it, but how can I get it off (I've already tried rubbing alcohol)?

Re: blackness on strings

Well, try scraping you pick up and down the string, plucking the string HARD, pulling straight out, otherwise, im not sure, but does it really matter?

Re: blackness on strings

Go with WD-40. Spray some on a clean rag, then hold the rag between your fingers and the string, just pinch/slide across the whole string from the bridge to the nut. Looking at the rag when your done will reveal several black "skid" marks. Your strings are now clean and will last longer.

I NEED INFORMATION ABOUT THE 1989s ALVAREZ YAIRI DY 156 PB

i have a Alvarez yairi DY 156 PB guitar , made in 1989 , grey sunburst , and I would like to know more about it (price ,quality , if it is a good , bad guitar....) . Anybody knows where to find information about it?THANKS

Re: I NEED INFORMATION ABOUT THE 1989s ALVAREZ YAIRI DY 156 PB

: i have a Yairi DY 156 guitar , made in 1989 TOO, Though it's got brown sunburst , and a black body. And not Alvarez!
I reckon yours is a true K.Yairi as well. Mine plays like a dream and I cannot find any other details about it either. Seems like the K.Yairi factory takes a pride in not having any records of which guitars were made and when...

May take up bass

Hi folks. i have one general question. i may take up bass guitar. i have the hands for it (large ones) but i'm curious how log would it take to actually lear, i know pratice is involved but my question is how much?
Later

Re: May take up bass

Bass is kewl.
Very fun, and not hard.
Theres many, many styles of playing, and yeah...
If by how much you mean price?
$300+ for a GOOD bass, and dont buy a guitar amp, you need a specific bass amp, unless you like the smell of fried woofer in the morning

Re: May take up bass

Bass Guitar is an excellent instrament. How long it will take you to "learn" is a question of how you wanna play. A few months and you can be jammin' if you wanna be a kick ass punk guitarist. 95% of that style of playing is agressiveness. Then again, it may take a little longer to learn if you want to be a smooth, swinging, fre form jazz bassist. Of utmosyt importance, regaurdless, is to be perserverant. Don't quit, or you will never reach your full potential. the first follow up was good advice on gear. Whatever you do, dont buy a guitar madew by rougue. . .lol

Wanna learn techniques

ok, can anyone tell me what stop-picking is, and

butterfly guitar

Hey, i saw a guitar (probably an Epiphone E-02) at a guitar store and now i can't find it anywhere. It is an acousitc-electric and it has a butterfly below the strings, a crecsent moon with a star on the headstock, and i think vines in the fretboard. I have been looking for this guitar for over a year and it is seeming to be impossible. If anyone knows where one is please e-mail me. Thanx

Re: butterfly guitar

Hey Whitney - did you ever find that guitar? I just saw one on ebay (it just sold) and was looking for one as well.

It does not have vines on the neck. That would be too tacky. I have one, not for sale i am sorry to say but i think that they are such nice guitars that nobody would ever sell one. Not for less than a heck of a lot of money anyway.
Sorry i cant help.

Wanted B.C. Rich Bich, and Mockingbird supremems.

I will consider deluxe and NJ models also.

Please email me with info.

Thanks
