Re: Confused by amps!

: i've been playing for 3 yrs and have been using a trace elliot 15w practice amp. i now need something louder. my 15w amp has a socket to allow me to plug in an extension cab. If i plugged in a 300w 4x12 cab, would i get 300w of power, 15w of power or something else? please help!

: Thanks
300 WATTS IS THE POWER RATING YOU CAB CAN HANDLE. IT WILL HANDLE AN AMPLIFIER OF UP TO 300W OUTPUT POWER. PLUGGING YOUR 15W AMP INTO A 300W CAB IS NOT GOING TO MAKE YOUR AMP ANY LOUDER, ALTHOUGH IT WILL MOVE MORE AIR. YOU MIGHT THINK ABOUT GETTING A HIGHER OUT PUT AMP.

Takamine Acoustic

A couple of years ago I purchased used a Takimine acoustic guitar. It is model number EF360C, made in 1994. Where can I go to find information on it concerning what it is made of and it's value?

Re: Takamine Acoustic

A good place to start to find out what it may be worth is www.ebay.com. They sell a lot of used guitars on there, and you can at least see what they are starting out at, and then check completed auctions to see what past ones have sold for.

poweramp: mosfet v's motorola

dose anyone have an opinion on whitch is a better sounding poweramp? i've been using a mosfet based one for a few years, but feel its not delivering like it use to... would it be worth it to build a motorola based one, or would it sound the same?(i'd realy love to build a tube amp but the components are too expencive...so i'm stuck in the world of soid state-for now).

cleaning my guitar

I have an electric guitar with a shiny red finish. I've got all these greasy fingerprints and stuff everywhere and i was wondering if i could wipe it down with something - windex or something maybe? Anyone know if that's okay? Don't wanna wreck the paint job or anything. Okay, and here's the other thing. I want to shiney up the tuning pegs and bridge cover and I was gonna use brasso or silvo but my friend said if i dripped any on the paint by accident it'd leave a mark, so what should i use to polish them?

Please help.

Re: cleaning my guitar

ernie ball polish or dr. duck's axwax - works awesome and can go on the whole guitar. USE A
SOFT CLOTH, or you will get millions of tiny little hairline scratches all over the body. wipe it
on, let it dry and rub it down.

Re: cleaning my guitar

what i use best for the body of my guitars is meguiars,(car polish), which is the best preferably, dont use the abrasive type with graniels, but the pure liquid types, doing this, rub some on the body and or pickguard, and rub until it shines, now what i use for metal is SIMICHROME POLISH, available at hardware stores, this takes any tarnish off of metal, and wont hurt the finish, USE SPARINGLY! but anyways, i hope i helped...

Rust Remover

What can I use to remove some Rust of my Frets?.

Re: Rust Remover

: What can I use to remove some Rust of my Frets?.

I went to a guitar store and asked a pro what to do with the rust on my guitar. He told me to mix a little bit of vinegar and water and rub the rusted area with a cloth. Im not sure if this works but its worth a try.

Stratacoustic?

Buying my first guitar was tempted to but a Rogue AE-100 then found the Stratacoustic, I like the looks but is that a good enough reason to pay the extra dollars? Any help would be appreciated. Be gentle with me please. I have never done this before.... : )

Re: Stratacoustic?

if it had the word "Fender" on it anywhere it costs too much, will sound like crap, and more than likely fall apart.

Re: Stratacoustic?

I understand this crap about how much fenders suck. Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix. What else do I have to say?

Re: Stratacoustic?

I bought one off ebay for $145 (in 'perfect' condition), and acoustically I think it sounds awful (lows suck... but of course it's so shallow), plugged it sounds ok (better than the teleacoustic though), but I would get the ovation, the AE-100 dosen't sound that much better but for the price think it's a better guitar. The workmanship looks pretty poor (binding etc) and no pick guard... so even though the finish was perfect when I got it... it's now scratched to hell. I just keep it on the boat now... figure if it falls in the water it will float.

Re: Stratacoustic?

I found one in a music shop near me and gave it a try...looks pretty but sounds like a toy. For the $229 they were asking I would have easily spent another $100 and gotten a different thin hollow body. IMHO.

Re: Stratacoustic?

it really is a piece of crap. it looks awsome, but that doesn't matter, if you want a shallow-body guitar just buy a reguler one.

fenders are crap!!! (and so are gibsons)

they are cheap copies of tokai guitars, and of course, are not as well built. we all know that the little yellow people make better everything than the overweight american slobs, so do yourself a favour, and buy japanese. love Bob. ps. gibson are crap also, their overweight prices reflect the overweight people who build these crap guitars.

Re: fenders are crap!!! (and so are gibsons)

I have a hard time believing that Fenders are crap since they are used by so many in the recording industry. Is this in reference to the Stratacoustic?

Re: fenders are crap!!! (and so are gibsons)

theres only one thing i can say to that....your name explains everything!

Re: fenders are crap!!! (and so are gibsons)

must agree ay
fenders look crap, sound like mud, they buzz, they break, they dont actualy play all that well, and they cost too much. i realy dont see how you could possibly want one. and dont start preaching how i must have never played an american strat, i have played plenty, and they all sucked

Re: fenders are crap!!! (and so are gibsons)

Well , I must say that i have been playing fender for 10 years and none guitar sound as sweet as mine specially playing the Blues. But This is of course a matter of music style mainly. I would love to have a Gibson LP but i can not afford that. At this point I agree with you they should be cheaper.

But I can't dare considering them crap at all. The guitar history is full of exceptional players playing fender and gibsons.........

fenders rule

HAVENT BEEN PLAYING THAT LONG, HUH? THE THING IS , A FENDER IS A FENDER-- A GIBSON IS A GIBSON---A PRS IS A PRS--ETC, ETC. A SEASONED PLAYER KNOWS THAT! IT TAKES A DEFFERENT KIND OF AGILITY AND DEXTERITY TO PLAY A FENDER THAN SAY A TOKAI, ( WHICH BY THE WAY IS A FENDER COPY). IN THE END, THE GUITAR THAT BRINGS OUT THE BEST IN YOUR PERSONAL PLAYING STYLE, IS THE BEST GUITAR IN THE WORLD!! AGAIN A SEASONED PLAYER KNOWS THIS, MR. NOB. FENDER---CRAP? I DON'T THINK SO!!!

Multiac Grand Concert SA problem with MIDI

I have buy a Godin Multiac Grand Concert SA and when i use it with my synthesizer Roland GR-1 i have this problem:

When i play the note C(string 2 first fret), 2 seconds later the same note play but one octave above. When i play the same note C on the string 4 the note mute very quickly. These effects are random.

I have play the guitar at the store on a Roland GR-33 syntheziser and the problem is always there. The salesman tell me that is normal!

Anybody have this guitar or another godin nylon string? if yes, do you have the same problem?

Excuse my english!
