Why are les paul studio's cheaper than standards

How are they different. Weight? Pickup? body?

Re: Why are les paul studio's cheaper than standards

Gibson wanted to make a guitar with the quality of a Paul but more affordable, so they
cut back on the "frills" which were mostly cosmetic and not needed in the studio.

Can anyone recommend anything in that price range?
I don't want an electro.
: Thanks.

Re: what 12 string?

If you don't know too much about 12 strings you should try to find someone who does. If that is not possible buy a Yamaha, they are usually good value for money. I have seen some Epiphone 12s which were quite good also. Most of the big name brands produce reasonable models. Good luck!

Re: what 12 string?

Seagull (same people who make Godin guitars) make a couple of 12 string models which are as good as you can get for the money. Don't know the conversion rate but here in Aus I can pick one up for $800 (and our $ is worth about the same as Kleenex) with electrics and les without. Excellent action, small neck, solid cedar top and much easier to play that anything in the price range.

need some help...

I'm new to the gituar, and I wanna play this song, unfortunately, i can't tell what some of the chords are. the ones I'm having trouble with are "Esus2" and "Dsus2". if you could tel me what fingers go where, etc. I'd greatly appreciate it.

Reason... Amp

Hi,
I am getting ready to purchase a Peavey Bandit 112 Transtube amplifier, Do you think that it is a good amp for my needs, I play in a great band, I play for big gigs and I need an amp to produce good sound. Let me know what you think! A store wants to sell it to me for $500 even is that a good price. Eric

Re: Reason... Amp

Personally..i would go with a Marshal or a fender...the only thing ive ever found that i like made by peavey is my peavey firenza ax....you can never go wrong with fender tube amps..i think they've got the best sound ever

just some ideas

brent

Re: Reason... Amp

Re: Reason... Amp

Hmm.For $500 check out the Tech 21 Trademark 60!

FENDER PROSONIC HEAD an Cabinet

Hi,
Im looking to buy a new amplifier. I want fender sparkling clean but also the distortion of a marshall and perhaps the beef of a mesa. i hear the prosonic head is great but i would like some input. I hear it is discontinued too.....If anyone has ANY info on this amp it would be greatly appreciated

thanx
Ron

Re: FENDER PROSONIC HEAD an Cabinet

Hey Ron, I know you posted this like 3 years ago, but I am bored so I'll reply. The prosonic is a great amp. It does give you those sparkeling fender cleans and the distortion is like no other fender amp I've heard. I have only heard the combo version though. And the head and cabinate are probably much different. There are somethings to consider before buying the amp: There is only on eq for the clean and distortion channels. The foot switch that comes with the amp sucks. The buttons are too close together (about 1" apart) and there are no indicator lights to remind you where you are. Otherwise it is a great amp that will rip your face off. I almost find that there is too much distortion, but that is my opinion only.

I hope you or someone else find this info. Useful.

Songwriting

I am a semi new guitarist and I have learned some songs and now I want to write my own riffs and I can't seem to get started. Is there ne one that could give me a couple pointers?

Re: Songwriting

at the start, i found it a lot easier to come up with new ideas if:
- i had a drum machine playing
- i met up with other people for a bit of a jam

sometimes, really good riffs come to me when i'm at work, or lying in bed

best thing for me was playing along with a drum machine. if you can record yourself it helps, too.

Re: Songwriting

Not really any pointers here. Ian write many good lyrics but lack the music to go with it .And i can't seem to put the two together. Just letting ya know .We got the same porb here man. Later,

Re: Songwriting

YES! forget about being "musicly correct" and just try to make neat sounds. being a musical Craftsman means doing things well that others have already thought of, Being an ARTIST however, means doing what noone else has.

Distortion!! Any recommendations?

Ok i have a peavy Butcher amp. its old school. 100 watt tube. it has high output and low output. it doesnt have a switch for distortion, just knobs you gotta turn. what is the best pedal to get for that kinda amp to get maybe a LINE6 INSANE sound. anyone suggest overdrive pedals? i have a guitar with active emg's

Re: Distortion!! Any recommendations?

ibanez tk9 (the tube king)
i've got that amp it's a tough call. its got a lot of spank and mine hums already.
but this pedal warms the glassy over well.

I already have a metal zone and a boss equalizer

Re: Distortion!! Any recommendations?

Hmm.Since you already have an e.q. pedal check out the Ibanez SM-7 Smash Box.It's like opening a can of WHOOP-ASS!!
Good Luck

Re: Distortion!! Any recommendations?

Try the boss DS-2 Turbo Distortion , one of the best distortions ever and has got two distortion modes! So two for the price of one. Ideal for grunge, rock, punk, nu -metal,....

tuning problem

I play a Carvin DC400T. Lately, when I tune to alternate tunings(Eb or D on the low E), the other strings go out of tune. When I get those back in tune, I have to retune the low E. Any suggestions on what's causing this?
