Re: How much is a Vintage 1970's Yamaha FG-30 worth? Recenlty baught one at yardsale for $80...

I saw one in a store for $125, but was only in fair condition... depends on condition.

: I was just curious how much a vintage 70's Yamaha FG-300 would be valued at. Has red sticker inside, probably good condition. All original.

Natural vs. Synthetic

I got this research paper on the difference between all natural bodied guitars and synthetic. I've benn doing some research on this. Most guitars I found were wood. I'm not that great at knowledge when it comes to guitars. Is there something I'm not getting? Anyway... if anyone has any information leading me in the right direction post it or e-mail it to me, please.

Re: Natural vs. Synthetic

The only 'synthetic' guitars I have come across are some acrylic (see through) and metal ones I've seen on ebay once in awhile, and other than acoustic with plastic/fiberglass bowls the only other 'synthetic' guitar I can think of are the graphite ones that have come out in the past several years, and though the one I tried sounded decent I still prefer wood... so maybe check out companies producing graphite guitars as (I think) they are the only ones that currently can compare/compete with a quality wood guitar.

Re: Natural vs. Synthetic

USA JACKSON IN A HOCK SHOP

Ive come across a USA made Jackson with a bolt on neck.
It's in a bit of a mess but has a picture of an old haunted house scene on the top.In the spring cavity there is some sort of ink stamp with dates , name ??
On the rear of the body there is a a sort of curve near the back plate.Floyd Rose - appears pickups may be active as wires are all hanging out but there are batteries. Any ideas ?

Re: USA JACKSON IN A HOCK SHOP

If there is battery connection with jackson pick-ups it's most likely the low impediance set up with mid-range boost, or they are EMGs active pick-ups.You'll need a scamatic to wire it correctly.
There should be seirial# on back were the neck bolt on and you can go to Jackson/CharvelGuitars web site to get info.

Help with magnum neck

hi I was hoping that you could help m eout. I' just recently bought a cheep Les Paul copy out of a Pawn Shop ( with all plans to paint it up to look like Zakk Wylde's!) THe name Brand on the headstock says magnum, but it doesn't really look like its the original neck. in addition the only magnum guitar line I have found is an all metal guitar line ( obviously no connection to mine) If you have any idea of how I might be able to find out the origins of the magnum neck i would be happy to hear back from you. thanx

Re: Help with magnum neck

i guess just buy a new guitar! that would fix it yup yup yup~

What is a SuperCube or ICE CUBE?

A long time ago, some company made a gadget called and Ice Cube, and later a more complicated version fo the same gadget called a Super Cube. It was meant to hook up to the in/out RCA jacks of a Fender amp's reverb loop, and provided a sustain effect. The Ice Cube literally cut off the reverb, since the tank was unhooked and the gadget was hooked up in place of it. The Super Cube had RCA in/out jacks that the leads to and from the tank could hook up to while the gadget was in place, and blend pot to allow you some reverb action while still getting the sustain out of the cube. Around 1991, I read an article hwerein some amp guru said the things was basically just a particular value resistor hooked up to the hot lead on RCA plugs, but I cannot remember what sort of resistor he said worked. Does anybody here know? Email me if you do, and thanx.

Half diminished chords

Can someone explain the construction of a half
diminished chord please

Re: Half diminished chords

Root, minor third, flat five and dominant seven. If you drop the seventh one halfstep, ypu end up with a fully diminished chord - hence the name half diminished. One good voicing for ie a c half dim (cm7b5) is C - Gb - Bb - Eb , on strings a,d,g and b respectively.
This chord will typically function as a ii-chord in a minor key, most likely followed by Vb9. In this case F7b9, going to Bbm7.
mmmmmkay?

Limp Bizkit's No Sex bridge

Does anyone out there knows what pedals or effects for sure does Wes Borland uses to play that bridge thing "Realise that worth more than that..."???
It looks some kind of wicked delay, it's very cool though.

Guitar frets wearing out to fast

The frets on my guitar only last for one year at the time.
Do somebody know if there are different kind of
hardness of these frets to choose from?
I'm taking my guitar for maintenance once a year
and this cost me a lot.
Thank you!

Re: Guitar frets wearing out to fast

There are alot of different fret wire gauges/materials to choose from, another factor is just how much you play, if you play "all the time" you might not have any choice, and once a year on an ax that is getting alot of time really isn't that bad.

What do you think about Epiphones

What do you think about the new Epiphones? Quality? Worth it or should I just save my money and but a Gibson Les Paul? Please advise. Thanks!

Re: What do you think about Epiphones

I have an epi LP signature, though I bought it new in 2001 it is a '98, and it was very well made, but the regular epi LP I had wasn't, I had to replace the tuners, and even after replacing the pickups couldn't really get that sound I was looking for, so sold it and got a studio LP... and the sound I wanted, so I would say if you got the money at least get a used gibson LP... and play alot of em till you find the one you like.

go gibson it'll be worth it in the long run

epiphone

I bought 2 over a 3 year period. On the first one, there was so much feedback, i couldn't play it, and i couldn't get the action as low (to fretboard), like i have on my strat. On the second one, it simply wouldn't stay in tune. No more epiphones for me. I still have my one and only squire strat from 11 years ago, and nothing has come close, but i'm looking for a second axe.
