Much more than a 4trk because of virtual tracks, our main unit is a VS2480-Hot! $3,000 though. Boss BR8 is super cool for $700, cash strapped? buy used or B stock--zzounds.com

: TY,

Hi! I acually have a PS-4. You can ofcourse play allmost anything with it. Because of the two humbuckers, humbuckers allways sounds great. I´ve played everything from rock to soul, blues and even jazz on mine.

I'ts a good sounding guitar but, I can only rekomend buying a Jacksson if your ambission is to play metal or rock. It feels pretty silly playing a Jazz-standard with a guitar looking like that.
Bye!

a good overdrive pedal

i have a tech 21 trademark 60 amp and it has great overdrive, but i also want a good overdrive pedal to give it more versatility. any help much appreciated

Re: a good overdrive pedal

Hmm.I personaly like the Ibanez TS-10 for raunchy overdrive.But I always use my OD-3(Boss)!It's got a big,warm,classic sounding overdrive.As a booster,it's very transparent...more so than the TS-10.
However,the best overdrive stomper I've heard is the BACKSTONE.FUGEDDABOUDIT!! It's $225.00,but worth every penny!I love mine.
Some of my choices

Re: a good overdrive pedal

thanks man, i did buy a boss sd1 (japanese) off a friend, and i think it fits the bill, nice and warm. cheers. tom

Re: a good overdrive pedal

Mesa's V-Twin pedal is KILLER! It is expensive, but try it out and you will see why.

Older Acoustic BC Rich

Have an older(roughly 25 yrs) model B-28, serial #507389,looking for information on history and approximate value

Re: Older Acoustic BC Rich

: Have an older(roughly 25 yrs) model B-28, serial #507389,looking for information on history and approximate value
Serial # makes it a 1975, Made between 1967 - 1982
in california at Bernie Chavez rico's Dad's shop Bernie not his dad. nice quality. Many have neck joint problems and poor action. $200 - 1000 depending on wood and condition. Selling drop me a line!

Re: Older Acoustic BC Rich

Since receiving this much appreciated response to my questions regarding the dating and approximate value of my guitar, I have been reading up on the history of BC Rich acoustics, and the serial numbering formats they used to indicate the years in which they were made and the specific number of the total produced in that model of that year. Based on what I have read, however, I don't understand how mine was determined to have been built in 1975. Can someone please enlighten me? Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: Older Acoustic BC Rich

Well the normal pre 76' serial # scheme is ymm xxx
Y=year 2 through 5 1972-1975 mm= month the month can be 1 or 2 digits and sept can be 09 or 9 (don't ask me why but they did'nt stick to either way) the xxx = production #'s but it by group. they tended to group b-28,B-30,B-38 together. the B-45's were seperate. the b-20'S were seperate. the electrics were seperated by model the total was up to that point not by year. The pre 72 system was Bernie Sr's Dad's. and it normally was 1101-1 with the year accross from it on the label.
the 76 and above started with a yy = year (76) there were some 75's with that format also. All and all it is a confusing hap hazard system that requires a bit of conjecture. Hope that helps.

New to electrics

Hi, I have been playing acoustic for 1/2 year, and tried an electric guitar today for an hour. I was wondering, what exactly is "hammering, pull up, palm, slide, etc."??? Could someone explain this, or please provide a link? Thank you,

Re: New to electrics

ok this is how i understand it (and play)...
Hammering is where you pick one note and then, without piking a second time, "hammer" on another note with your left hand, so you play two notes but only pick the first. Its a pretty basic thing but youve gotta have strong fingers!
i dont know about "pull ons" but pull offs are the opposite of hammering; pick a note, and then release the finger that is holding the note (left hand) and allow a note below the first to sound. but don't pick the second. is very useful for fast solos etc.
Palming is where you play a chord/ note etc and then "damp" the string (s) with your right hand palm/
side of hand, so you cut the sound short.
Sliding is where you play a note/ bar chord / chord etc and, keeping your left hand in the same position, slide it up/down the fretboard, play a second note/chord. pick/strum both positions.
gotta go now more later! G

Re: New to electrics

Thanks Georgi. I have just one more question. What is distortion? And how do you do it?

Re: New to electrics

ok i dont know much about distortion... being a college student, i dont have the latest amp outfit for my electric guitar etc but i can tell roughly...
its when you change the sound, using an amplifier with the "distortion switch"... it sounds kinda strong and is often used in metal, etc... id have to ask someone else on this board, for more info.

BUT, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN DO ALL OF THOSE THINGS ON ACOUSTIC AS WELL. HAMMER ON-PULL OFF, TRY IT WITH YOUR FUCK YOU FINGER ON THE SECOND FRET, G STING IN A BLUES 145 PROGRESSION. SHIT, YOUVE BEEN PLAYING FOR HALF A YEAR, YOU DONT KNOW WHAT A 1-4-5 IS ? O.K., PLAY THESE CHORDS IN A BLUES STYLE---AM,D9,E9. IF YOU CAN, RECORD YOURSELF PLAYING THIS PROGRESSION----NOW DO THE VOODOO HAMER ON- PULL OFF--YOU CAN DO THIS FOREVER AND IT NEVER GETS OLD--ROCK ON!!!
