Re: strings

Go to your local shop and try a few different types. See what you like. Different people prefer different strings depending on their chemistry in the sweat and their finger shape, toughness. I'd try Blue Steel's.

: what are the best bass strings on the market? and where can i find them

Tr, what's your email so I can send you my guitar info

Hi, actually, I have now gotten the date for it and issue. It's an 82 or 83 Heritage model but now I'm looking for market value. If you can still help that would be great. Thanks.

Dating is the first step, the next step is determining how much original equipment is still on the guitar. grading the finish, is the case still in tact, etc etc.

Need info on first guiter

I want to buy my first acoustic guitar. My budget is pretty small...$150. Any suggestions would be great!!

Re: Need info on first guiter

How's it going? So you need a guitar for under $200?
A good place to check is e-bay. You can find all kinds of deals on there. Also, Fender makes a decent beginners acoustic. I think it runs about $200 though.
Another idea go to muiciansfriend.com look for a guitar
company called Rogue. They make a decent budget guitar
A close friend of mine purchase a very nice Rogue acoustic with beautiful inlays. It is a great sounding guitar. And the price is just perfect for you! Good luck! My e-mail is djl240@hotmail.com if you need more info. I'll e-mail you back if needed.
p.s. It's guitar, not guiter.

Bond Electribe

Hallo,
I´m from Germany-Sorry for my bad english!
I´m searching for informations about my Bond Electraglide "black".I think it´s from 1985.
Can anybody help me? (Price at the moment, How many of this guitars where build...)
Thanks!!!!!

Re: Bond Electribe

Hi,

You probably know all this by now but I'll tell you what I know anyway. Bond Guitars was set up in 1984 by Andrew Bond (sadly died in 1999), Bond opened their factory in a small vilage in the scotish highalnds called Muir of Ord (aprox 20 miles from where I live). The factory went bust in 1986 and no more guitars were built. they only made around 1400 of them, the majority of those wwere a fixed bridge model the trmelo models are extremly rare. Unfortunately the company went bust before it sorted out all of the problems with the instrument and were allready bankrupt before the Electraglide was launched, the main problem being the power supply, and specialised lead. The lead is brital and caries the power and audio signal, the power supply is fragile, dropping it or even standing on it could break the main board (there is a rather heavy transformer mounted on a main board which is in turn mounted in the center of box). Also if the electronics fail it is almost impossible to get replacement parts for (most of the chips are now obsolite), so look after it :) I believe they sell for anywhere between £600 - £1200 (900 to 1800 EUR). I have come across earlier models with a poly carbon fret board and even one with a custom power lead (a clip in 5 DIN plug instead of the standard 14" jack). One was recently displayed at the Boston museum. They come in either black or black. I don't own one but wish I did, I was recently offered one but don't think I can afford it :(

Hope this helps.

Happy Electrogliding :)

Roland V-Guitar

Anyone know of a place in Florida to service an ill-tempered V-G8 unit quickly? I need it to perform and many of the preset sounds seem to be corrupted.
HELP!

Graph Tech Saddles

Has anybody had experience with these saddles? I've read the blurb which says they're the best thing since sliced cheeze but someone told me they can make the guitar feel dead. I have a G&L S500 with the cast metal saddles which keep developing pits. And breaking the strings.

Re: Graph Tech Saddles

I have them on my Strat, and they work and sound great!

gibson Real or fake

I passed by a local pawn shop and he has a GIBSON guitar for the 60's. I dont know the history of gibsons but it says gibson on the head stock and on the tension bar cover it says something like MARAIDER. I need to know if this is real or not before i buy it. pleas email at BMX0850@aol.com subject GIBSON

Re: gibson Real or fake

It's a Gibson Marauder, made in the late 70's in Gibson's Nashville factory. It's a mahogany body with a maple bolt on neck. It has a humbucker in front, with a single coil in back. Gibson also made one with 3 single coils called the S-1. If you can get it for less than $300, and it's not all tore up, go for it.

other barre forms(cshape,d shape, etc)

Is anyone familiar with barre chords based on the c shape, d shape, and g shape(and their minors)? If so , are these monkeyfinger chords(i.e. an open c minor barre shape) bad for your hands?

Re: other barre forms(cshape,d shape, etc)

These barre cordal 'shapes' are essential and are not 'bad' for your hands, just practice them till you get used to forming them.

whats an E chord?

hi. would someone teach me how to play this damn thing!!!

Re: whats an E chord?

open is just 3rd string 1st fret, 4th & 5th strings second fret, barred at the 7th fret (mid 4 strings), and there are many other voicings... best thing to do is get a chord reference book or there are many webpages that show chord construction.

: hi. would someone teach me how to play this damn thing!!!

Re: whats an E chord?

For some reason it doesn't suprise me that Wes Borland doesn't know how to play an E chord...

Re: whats an E chord?

: For some reason it doesn't suprise me that Wes Borland doesn't know how to play an E chord...

But now he is on the road to enlightenment, I can't wait for the next cd... will we be credited ??? :)

Re: whats an E chord?

LOL! Don't worry about it buddy, I can play Metallica, AC~DC, System of a Down, Blink 182, Red Hot Chili Pepper, and so much more, and I hardly know ANY of my basic stuff! HA HA HA.
