i'm getting a guitar for free...

Re: i'm getting a guitar for free...

So, greedy little bastard, i'd like to have the same chance as you. :-)
Buy hand-made guitar with golden hardware...

Or I have read somewhere that there is Albert Collins Telecaster model supplied by Fender, which is very expensive. What do you say?

How are Shecter Guitars???

I am looking for a nice fat warm clean tone. I play through a music man amp with a fender tele with a hotrail on the bridge, and It just is not the sound I want. I am trying to decide between possibly a Shecter or a SG special. They do sound a little different, but for the cost, I'm leaning towards the Shecter.

Re: How are Shecter Guitars???

get the shecter i have a shecter c-1+ and a Gibson SG and i expeted the gibson to sound so much better but the shecter sounds a lot better and has alot more tone.

how are the shecters from the 1980's???

SHECTER GUITARS

I just purchased the Shecter C1+ and i am completely amazed at it. Not only by the looks of it but by the complete balance of it. With it's mohagany neck just like the LEZZIES (les Paul) it sounds wicked..Also it's a lot lighter than the les paul's. But the thing that caught me ear when i first plugged it in is the TONE Quality...it's got a rich sound that is thick and controllable..the Two hummers keep the annoying notes out and last but not least...my favorite part..The balance of it..It is the most balaced guitar i have ever heard..This guitar makes SG's Look like a pile of mud...SINGLE HUMBUCKERS BAH HUM BUG!!! BRING ON A MANS GUITAR...This guitar can play your precious EMO love songs..or it can kick into a variety of wicked gears...Not to mention the smell of butter as i play the lead..NO QUESTION..eveyone should try a SCHETER no matter what kind..but c1+ is straight out an awesome guitar
PEACE

Re: How are Shecter Guitars???

: Just got the BlackJack S1 and I love it ... BIG Tone and just in general BIG Sound ... It kicks ass!

Go with the Shecter

I have to agree with everybody else here. I just got home from Guitar Center and not twenty minutes ago was playing all sorts of Shecters. The Diamond series (XXX, C1, etc) are PHENOMENAL. I couldn't believe that guitars for $595 felt, looked and sounded like that. I've never liked Gibsons (too heavy, not enough give in the action) and just picked up a Shecter on a whim. The tone was GREAT, really crisp when clean and really thick when distorted. Responsive, playable... I feel like I've found the guitars that were MADE for me, and I'm sure you'll feel the same way. These guitars are just way better than their price suggests. Forget the Gibsons, go to the store and plug in a Shecter and you'll see what we're all talking about!!

Oops, sorry about the misspelling!

Sorry about that, it's actually spelled "Schecter." I was so excited from playing that I forgot to look it up.

gibson sg

does anyone have any clue where I can find some blueprints for a gibson sg. I plan to make one one day... I am not looking for something I have to pay for. The gibson sg has been around for decades, it's been marketed every which way possible, it's silly to pay for its blueprints.

decent first acoustic(-electric)?

Looking to get my first "real" acoustic (or acoustic-electric). I've been learning on a second-hand classical guitar (eek), and the fretboard's way too wide for my not-too-large hands. I'm thinking about an acoustic-electric, in case I feel like jamming with my plugged-in brethren. Any good recommendations for a relatively low-budget axe?
thanks in advance...

I recently picked up a used Fernandes Reyna at a local shop for less than $200. This guitar has the most comfortable neck of any acoustic I've ever played! Good luck, BIG AL

Re: decent first acoustic(-electric)?

Check out Yamaha's entry level acoustic guitars. Epiphone and Ibanez have fairly good acoustic guitars at below $300. If you can spare a bit more, try the lower end guitars by Tacoma and Takamine, as well as Ovation for electric acoustics. good luck to your playing. :)

my personal opinion would be a paticular model which i have played but do not yet own is an ovation balladeer special model S771 due to its collectable qualities and the noticeable improvement in sound projection due to lack of embellishment and finish.

I'm wondering where can I find a decal for a 70's fender strat peghead.

Re: Fender 70's Decal

:The only place you will get one of these is through Fender itself. And they will need proof that the guitar you own is a true Fender, for copywrite purposes

Congrats to Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard

Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry and Little Richard are to be the first 3 recipients of the Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) Icon Award, to be presented to them at the BMI 50th Annual Pop Awards dinner at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday May 14th 2002.

The performing rights organization is honoring them with this prestigious new award in recognition of their many contributions to contemporary music. Bo Diddley's debut single "Bo Diddley"/"I'm A Man" (Checker 814) hitting the rhythm & blues singles chart in May 1955, Chuck Berry's "Maybellene" (Chess 1604) in August 1955 and Little Richard's "Tutti-Frutti" (Specialty 561) in January 1956.

Now in his early 70s, one of the founding fathers of rock music and the popularizer of the world-famous "Bo Diddley beat", singer and guitarist Bo Diddley is still very much active in the recording studio and in the clubs and the concert halls around the world. He performed a rousing version of his classic song "Who Do You Love" with George Thorogood & The Destroyers in front of a TV audience of millions at the Live Aid Concert in Philadelphia in 1985. A couple of years later he was deservedly an early inductee into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. In 1996 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rhythm 'n' Blues Foundation and in 1998 received another Lifetime Achievement Award this time from The Recording Academy at that year's annual Grammy Awards Ceremony. More recently, yet further honors were justifiably awarded to him when he was inducted into The Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame, The North Florida Music Association Hall of Fame and on March 8th of this year he was awarded the prestigious Pioneer In Entertainment Award by The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (NABOB).

Warmest congratulations to Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry and Little Richard on the awarding of these richly-deserved honors.

David Blakey, Webmaster,
BO DIDDLEY-The Originator

A Celebration of Bo Diddley's unique contribution to Popular Music.
