Re: johnson guitars

The question about johnson guitars was answered for me a few days ago.I work in a professional studio one of the guys had forgotten his bass we were able to borrow a johnson from the local store it was they brought it in with the price tag on it 149.00 I said no way ,but there was a way,it was incredible,that bass was played on some sound trax that we recreate for a very large dist.I played a 5 string a few days ago,I have played alot of bass guitars that were way expensive and could not close to the feel of that neck and chording it was a pleasure instead of a task,for the price I don't believe you can get any better for pro or beginner.

Distortion/feedback issues please help! :-\

ok i have an esp f-200, and im running a Peavy Butcher 100w tube head and a randal cab with 4 75 8 ohm celestions. now im also running to a metal zone as well because i wanna just get some insane heavy sound.
now me and my drummer are playing in his garage, and im sure the half stack shoould be loud to play with or over the drums. im running to a metal zone as well, but the thing is i get so much god damn feedback in there, but when i plug staright through amp distortion i get barely any feedback and it is loud as hell! BUT! the distortion doesnt have any crunch or power, has no power behind it, sounds wimpy. i wanna know, is it good to use a distortion pedal with a guitar that has active pickups, or is it best to use amp distortion? and if its amp distortion how can i get the amp distortion to gimme more chunck? any recommendations on what i should get? maybe the metal zone isnt a good pedal with my guitar? or i dunno someone help. also can it be the way we are set up in the garage? i get way too much feedback in there, especially with this guitar. ok thnx.....

Re: Distortion/feedback issues please help! :-\

mate if youve got a gain level on your clean channel (the one you use with the pedal) turn that all the way down, crank up the level and then turn the gain up to boot. To get a more metal sound out of your amp, crank the mid all the way down, and plenty of bass and top end. Active pick ups kick arse with amp drive, coz they pump more signal in. Its probly not a pedal problem. It your amp is more than, say 12 months old you might need to replace the pre-amp tubes (12ax7's), and maybe the power tubes (6L6gc's). Sovtek are pretty cheap and hef a mad sounds. Hope this helps bro

Re: Distortion/feedback issues please help! :-\

hey buddy thnx man im gonna give it a try! :D

ETCHING ON GUITAR/REPAIR? info/help greatly appreciated!

Hi everyone!

im considering making a guitar purchase on a great used guitar.. here's the one flaw on the guitar tho.. as the seller put it, "someone has etched the name of a band on the face. It's hardly noticeable, easily repairable."

does anyone know what a repair on an "etching" on a guitar might be? ill assume that it was probably done w/ a razor, since "etching" seems to suggest such a scenario.

does anyone here have any idea what it might cost to repair such damage to the finish of a guitar? a rough estimate perhaps? it seems that it was an "attempt" to etch on the guitar.. so that the person didnt get very far if its "not very noticeable".. so maybe it wouldnt be that expensive? just thought someone might be able to provide some insight on this query.

if you could, please post here.. or preferrably email me at major_thom@hotmail.com or jonny_greenwood@yahoo.com

thank you.

regards,
VIC

Re: ETCHING ON GUITAR/REPAIR? info/help greatly appreciated!

How deep is it? I would suggest sanding it down with a light grade sandpaper ( like 600) then try buffing it.
If the guitar is really cool, get it anyways. You can always repaint it later on if what I said does not work. Oh, is it electric or acoustic?

The guitar is electric. Its a 90s model Gibson Les Paul Jr. Lite SE. The seller tells me that there is a light scratch on the surface.. he says he is the second owner of the guitar.. that he bought it in this condition.. and that its barely noticeable. it looks like someone tried to scratch a name into it with a blade of some sort. i havent seen the guitar yet. but i hope to by this weekend. thank you for the info so far :)
