If your bass has even the slightest chance of being a desireable vintage instrument someday, leave it alone!
The original finish, even if it's beat up, will always be more valuable on a vintage guitar that any refinish no matter how well it's done or by whom.

No just sand all the old paint down and spray the new paint on nothing special use a nice finish when all done I sugest waxing

1953-54 hofner bass& six string

I have a set of guitars that my dad bought in germany while on tour in 1954. One is a solid body bass with two pickups spaced apart with the "diamond" logo,reinforced neck,and a bright red paint job. The six string is covered with red vinyle with a white bead around the edge.It has three pickups with the same diamond logo and the neck is not reinforced. It also has the tremelo bar. Anyone that can give me information about the model numers (they are not marked,nor are the pots),and the availability of replacement switches,and what the value might be, i would apreciate it. I play the bass daily,but the six string needs work thanx, russ

I have a 335 dot epiphone and use a seymour duncan jazz pickup in the neck and a duncan alnicoII in the bridge. The tone is just great.

How do i mute the chords?

I need to know how to mute the chords.

Re: How do i mute the chords?

: I need to know how to mute the chords.

a simple palm mute involves laying your right side of hand against the strings as you pick

any advice?...

Hey, I'm supposed to play a song for my grandparents' 50th anniversary party. Anyone have any suggestions for what I should play? I sing and play guitar -- mostly chords and simple picking, although I probably have time to learn a more difficult pattern.

Re: any advice?...

Hmm.How 'bout "My Life"(Beatles)or "I Only Have Eyes For You"(Flamingos).That tune always gets over BIG and it'll never die.

Modifying an Ampeg SVT 8x10 Cabinet

Hi there.
I wan to modify my cabinet, divide it up in 2 x 4x10",
so that I can use 2 amp on the same cabinet.
Is anyone familiar with the Ampeg 8x10" cabinet, and how to open up such thing?

Re: Modifying an Ampeg SVT 8x10 Cabinet

I've had a couple of 8x10 cabinets. Two or three SVTs and even a Marshall 8x10. With the SVTs there is no way to "open it up". You basically have to get at it from the front. That is, pull off the grill and get to the insides of the cabinet through the speaker holes. I bought an SVT that had three blown speakers and modified one half of it with one 15" speaker. That gave me a lot more bottom end with the highs that the 10''s offered. It was in crappy shape otherwise I would have left it alone.
For you to swap over 4 of the 8 speakers, take the grill off, and simply disconnect the bottom or top four speakers so that you can rewire them with a second jack. Personally, I'd leave it alone and buy another cabinet. The SVT is worth more if it is in it's normal configuration and not modified.

Good luck.
