Mesa Boogie "TRIAXIS".....

Looking to buy a TRIAXIS. Can't find any reviews. If I buy a TRIAXIS, will it keep it's sound if I run it through my pair of QSC power amps or should I buy a MESA tube-power amp. Is the "tube" power amp overrated? $1,500 is alot of cash for an amp.

yamaki deluxe

I've got a Yamaki Deluxe. My aunt had it hanging on her wall with flowers in the sound hole and no tuning machines. I think it's from the early 70's. I fixed it up, but now the bridge is actually pulling right off the sound board. I bolted the bridge down, but i think she has guitar cancer. It still sounds great and plays excellent! I haven't heard of anyone else having this problem and I'll make mine last as long as possible.

Pickup Phasing

My guitar has "Humbucker-Single-Humbucker" pickup configuration using a 5-way switch. I recently replaced the original bridge humbucker with a DiMarzio humbucker. The problem I have now is when I select the inner bridge humbucker and single coil split (position 4), I get a real flat twangy sound (no low tones at all). I'm asuming this is a phasing problem. I don't want to make any changes to the Single coil. Can I just simply rotate the DiMarzio Humbucker 180 degrees or do I need to reverse the "hot" and "ground" wires?

Re: Pickup Phasing

I'm having the same problem (barely a sound in position 4) after replacing the original bridge humbucker with a Seymore Duncan Invader. I'm going to try reversing the green (ground) and the black (hot) wires from the new pickup. I'll post a follow-up after I finish this afternoon.

Question about acoustic guitar

I looking for buying an acoustic guitar. I saw and played the Takamine LTD 2000 model and I liked it very much. I would like any opinion about that guitar or another one similar or better.
Thanks and regards.

Re: Question about acoustic guitar

That model plays very nicely, in fact, all Taks tend to feel like electrics, very fast necks.

marshall 1960a 4x12 rattling cabinet

k, i have two marshall 1960a cabs and they both rattle and i don't know what to do with them. i took one apart and couldn't find anything wrong twith it. the castors were off, the head was sitting on the floor and all the screws were tightened. are there any possible reasons for why there is a rattle in this cabinet. it only occurs with high bass (mostly palm muted) and at high volumes. Distortion covers it up. This isn't a buzz. they rattle. also, it isn't the growl like they are supposed to but rattle. i have two (like i said). One is in mint condition and the other has had it's fair share of miles on the road. any help, suggestions?

A) Make ssure all your speaker mounting bolts are tight.
B) Make sure your speaker cones and gaskets aren't rotted and/or crumbling.
C) Insure that the wiring is not coming in contact with the speaker cones.
D) Vacuum out the cabinets and CAREFULLY remove any debris between the speaker cones and baskets.
If they still buzz, the cabiets themselves my be coming apart.

Burns Marvin Neck

I have an original Burns Marvin Neck for sale, or I may consider buying a Burns Marvin Body, if you have one intact. The neck has been valued at £500. There was only 350 on these guitars made all these years ago. They were designed by Jim Burns and Hank Marvin, hence the name. Serious enquiries only please. I am looking for £300. No haggling.

I own two Burns Marvins and a Baldwin Marvin - did you ever get to sell that neck? Incidentally, I had a replacement body made for the Baldwin Marvin, the wood was unstable and cracked the poly finsh very badly.

Bill Bowley.

Re: Burns Marvin Neck

Hi Louise, sorry for the late reply, can you send me a picture of the guitar and describe its condition please.

Re: Burns Marvin Neck

Hi Bill sorry for the late reply, and no, I did not sell the neck, I still have it. I took the easy option and bought a re-issue Burns Marquee

Squier Strat by Fender

Is a Strat better than a Rogue? I'm a beginner and I have a Strat. Should I consider buying a new guitar?

guitar won't stay in tune

Have a wasburn electric, neck seems fine and just had a setup done and new strings put on. Any ideas. thank roverjimmy

Re: guitar won't stay in tune

: Have a wasburn electric, neck seems fine and just had a setup done and new strings put on. Any ideas. thank roverjimmy

Assuming you've properly stretched out the new strings, and know enough to tune UP to pitch NOT DOWN to pitch, it could be caused by almost anything. Bridge problem, nut, machines, neck, ham-fisted technique. Maybe you should take it bck to the tech who set it up and ask him. Especally if it stayed in tune before he did the setup for you. Keep us posted.
