Re: tom delonge strat

Here's a tip. Don't buy a guitar just because your a fan of the guy who's name is on it. Buy a guitar because it feels good, sounds good, and fits your budget.

Jeff Healey is blind so he doesn't care who's name is on a guitar it or what it looks like. He goes to the store, try's them out, and buys whatever feels good. He doesn't even plug them in. Then he sends them to his guy who guts out the electronics and replaces it with what he Jeff Healey likes.

Take it form the blind Master, if it feels good you'll enjoy it better and play better. I went to the store to buy a Les Paul, came home with an SG. Reason? It felt so damn nice to play.

I would recomend you buy the squier as the body quality from the fender to squier isnt all that different the invest in the Seymour Duncan Invader Pickup and put that in, then you get the same sound for a lot less money, the get saving up for the mesa boogie amp he uses :-P or u cud not buy any guitar yet and save For his new Gibson ES-333 sig. model which is the sexiest thing on the planet

Re: Should I Buy a Tom Delonge Strat??!?!?!

a defintie pro, would b its great sound. it has excellent bite. a con would b the tuners? i guess, i mean just like any other guitar that doesn't have locking tremolo it falls out of tune. other wise there isn't anything else i dislike. i have this guitar, and u should really consider getting it.

Nils Lofgren Guitar Strap

He i am trying to get my hands on a set of Dirty Fingers exposed coils humbucking pickups + potmeters etc. etc. for my 1981 Flying V. I am trying to get it back to its original state ( as far as possible) does any one know where i might be able to get lucky?

Re: flying V pick ups

Check out: http://www.kozaxs.com/pages/gibson.html they have some '79's for $125 which I think is kind of high but they are pretty cool so call em and they will 'deal' with you.... good luck.

Is this a serious "guitar website"?

Ok, this is a really good site.
But can you, all visitors, imagine there exist a
website about guitar but without Johnny Winter.
To me it's impossible! It sound like a "crime", not a serious one.

what's a good acustic guitar to start out on? something not cheap but not the best

Restringing Lefty ES 335 for Right hand player....

What items should be modified? Bridge(of Course?) Nut(maybe)....any information is helpful. Or should I just waist 5 bucks and see whether anything needs changing or not?

Re: Restringing Lefty ES 335 for Right hand player....

you gotta change around the nut and bridge around, and for a few bucks put a righty pickguard on... I think the biggest problem will be the knobs in the way, and it ain't an easy job to move them yourself, they are great guitars though, so have fun !!!!

'39 Gibson L-10?

I'm going to look at a guitar tomorrow. The guy says it's a '39 L-10. He said (on the phone) that it's a 17" body, with pearl script logo, but he said it had white binding, no the checkerboard pattern normally associated with an L-10. I asked him to describe the inlays, and he said they were diamonds, but that they started at the 3rd fret. It's very possible it's not an L-10; could be an L-7 because of the binding, but that still doesn't explain the inlay starting at the 3rd fret. The guy wants $800 or best offer, so it'll be coming home with me regardless, but it's driving me nuts trying to figure out what model it really is. Any ideas?

1st string produces weaker sound than others

Dear all,
My 1st string (high E) produces weaker sound than other strings. Is it because of the weaken quality of the 1st string (although they came from the same string set) or is it a pickup problem? Any advice on the cause and solution will be appreciated.
Thanks

Re: 1st string produces weaker sound than others

Usually that is caused by the pickup. There is nothing wrong with the pickup, it just needs to be adjsuted. Some pickups have individual poles for each string that can be adjusted up and down to adjust the sensitivity or loudness. Or you can move the pickup itself up and down from either side. Just take a screwdriver and either adjust the poles (if capable on your pickups) or move the pickup itself closer to the strings on the high E side.

Re: 1st string produces weaker sound than others

My advice is to use up the strings that came with the guitar, then get strings that are really good quality. (Like D'Arrdio strings.) I personally prefer medium heavy gauges because they have a good sound and last a long time. If the 1st string produces a weak sound even when the amplifier is turned off, it may be a problem with the bridge, or the neck may have been disfigured. (For example...don't rest the neck of your guitar against a wall/hard surface.) Take it to a guitar place and get that checked. Watch out what strings you buy, though...the strings I tried before D'Arrdio broke almsot prior to when I got them. I found that the strings that came with my guitar were far better...as a matter of fact, the strings the came with my Turser (red strat) were very good.

Gibson Songbird Pickup?

Does anyone know what brand of pickup is fitted to the songbird acoustic?

Does it need a pre-amp or EQ?

My tremolo's stuck!

i bought a Sunn Fender Mustang a couple of days ago, its my first guitar with a tremolo and the damn things got stuck

it will not move either way, do i just need to stick some oil there or is it something else?

It's something else. DON'T put any oil in there just yet. That could really become a problem! Take the plate off of the back of your guitar & see what's holding it up.

Jaguar, Fender

I just acquired a Fender Jaguar,,,,,,awesome! There is a rubber piece inserted between the rear pick up and the bridge,,,,,,,what is that doo-hicky and what is it for?

Please reply to "skidmarck@yahoo.com"

Thanks!

Re: Jaguar, Fender

It's a string mute. Not much practical use. The ones from the 60's mainly either got removed or rotted away.
