where can i find info

ive been playing acoustic guitar for a year and a half. i want to buy an electric guitar now but i dont know anything at all! please help and tell me where i can find a basic guide online or otherwise

Re: where can i find info

i have an ibanez RG520qs that is one hell of a guitar for the price-i play it more than my $3k les paul custom because it stays in tune under heavy punishment sessions...:) i think musicians' friend .com usually have pretty descent prices-but carry limited gear-i've heard good things about the cheaper ibanez models,as well- i love mine.........

Re: where can i find info

Well, what sort of music are you in to? For metal - Ibanez, Jackson, ESP, B.C. Rich, Washburn, and Les Pauls all work great. A bit spendy though. If you're going for a Jimi Hendix, Eddie Van Halen, or bluesy type - get a "super" Fender Strat - like a "Stagemaster Series". Fenders usually work great for anything other than metal, but you can never go wrong with a Les Paul!

Re: where can i find info

he forgot to tell you that les pauls are a pain in the ass to keep in tune-go with a double locking ibanez with an "edge" tremolo if you can afford it-if not,then just get the cheapest one you can...:)

Re: where can i find info

take no short cuts, they'll cost ya...just go on ebay and buy a fender strat ultra or at least a strat plus. you'll keep it forever.

metal sound

What are the best tube amps and preamps, effects and
pick ups ( Duncan Invader?) for metal sound?

Re: metal sound

this is a highly debatable subject which could take manymanymany pages to answer/..:).....it depends on the listener really for tonal preferences-but basically-marshall jcm 800's--mesa dual/triple recto's/diezel:)/ and i've heard alot of good things about the laney vh100r head.......

Re: metal sound

Stay away from the Duncan Invaders! They tend to have too much bottom and turn to mush at high volumes. Invaders have too much output.
I would suggest looking into the Carvin M22V...not the M22SD.Good tone and awesome power for a passive pickup.
Good Luck

Re: metal sound

personaly i realy dont like marshal heads for metal, stick with mesa and laney. EMG 81 is the ultimate metal pickup. If you want that killer metal sound, get a graphic EQ, and turn down the 400hz band pretty much all the way, and take a fair chunk out of the mid on your amp too.

Re: metal sound

I just bought an EMG-81. I need to get some hardware before I can install it. I am looking for the right sound and read that Metallica and Slayer use EMG, so without trying out one out I just bought it. I play on a Fender amp through a Boss GT-6 Effects Processor. I don't quite understand my technological stuff yet. Am I going to be able to get a good sound out of the EMG-81 with the gear I have?

Amps questions...

See the nick - do not laugh at the questions plzzzz... :)
1) What determines the Strength of the amp (max volume)....is it Watts.
2) What kinda amp do u need to give a concert in ahall at my scool....(kinda big place - i want to ROCK it all)
3) Anything interesting on different amps (Marshall? fender? Crate etc....whats the differece in quality etc)
Plzzzzz answer as ewasy as possibly....my nick says it all... Thanks

Re: Amps questions...

A Fender Twin or a Roland JC-120 is all you need to rock an auditorium! Marshall's are cool,but Twins(combo)have a warmer,beefier sound.JC-120's tend to be kinda bright,so watch the Treble level.
My Twins and I have sliced and diced many auditoriums!
Good Luck

Is there any real difference between these 2 Fenders?

Is there any difference between a 1960 reissue Amercian Fender Strat and your average strat you find, besides looks? I put a 60 reissue in the lay-a-way, it was $535 when a regular strat was like $350, am I paying an extra $200 for looks alone? Would it had been smarter just to get a Les Paul Jr since theirs only like a $70 price difference? Thanks for the help.

Re: Is there any real difference between these 2 Fenders?

its funny...My dad was so fond of my insanity to the music he bought me a Fender Strat - American made...These are the expensive once ure talkin about...
the cheaper ones are made in Chine, Korea...basically no difference, its because the work in America is more expensive, and the other countries its cheap to make...but u can feel the difference if u are into it... I played a Strat - exact copy...don remember where it was made, though, but after i tried american - fuck - i cant explane the joy...its a perfect being... well thats my opinion...me mom never understood why spent 200 bucks more on the same thing....but if u do not give a damn what it has on the back of it u better of with the cheaper one....but american are more valuable and with time they become collectibles, their value increasses - i ve seen on the inet strats for over two thousend bucks - VINTAGE :))) hope this helps...

Re: Is there any real difference between these 2 Fenders?

: Fender USA strat is completely different guitar than strats made in Mexico, Japan, Korea...
Pick ups, bridges, tuners for example are much, much better In USA strat. I strongly recommend to buy a american made strat.

NO, THERE IS NO REAL DIFFERENCE---THEY ARE BOTH CHEAP ASS GUITARS!!! DOES'NT MATTER WHICH ONE YOU BOUGHT--- IN A SHORT TIME THE PICKUP MAGNETS AND HARDWARE WILL START TO RUST, THE NECK WILL TWEAK AND YOU WILL EXPERIENCE STRANGE STRING BUZZING. YOU CAN, HOWEVER, BUY A USED AMERICAN VINTAGE SERIES '62 REISSUE FOR BETWEEN 600.00-- 8OO.OO. IT,S WORTH THE EXTRA CASH AND WILL RETAIN A GOOD TRADE IN VALUE--YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR ASS TRYING TO TRADE IN A CHEAPO STRAT INPORT.

Guitar slingin' blues women

Who are the best guitar slingin' blues women.

Re: Guitar slingin' blues women

As far as I know...Bonnie Raitt and Barbara Mendrell. They're maybe others...I don't know.

Re: Guitar slingin' blues women

There's many more, Check it out at www.dirtyblues.com But I did not know Barbara Mendrell. Thanks.

Re: Guitar slingin' blues women

Barbara Mendrell is country vocal. Nothing to do with guitar slingin' women.

Re: Saw her on an "Awards"show.I was very suprised !

Barbara Mandrell is mostly known as a vocalist.But I saw her pick guitar while another guy fingered the fretboard.She fingered the other fretboard while the guy picked his guitar! This was some Awards show I saw years back...SMOKIN'!!
P.S.I didn't dream it.

Re: Guitar slingin' blues women

I think Rory Block is awesome, but she is more country/delta blues.
