JEM 555 worth the money?

I'm about to buy a new Ibanezaxe. should i buy a RG 320, a RG 550 or a second hand JEM 555 (costs the saame as the new RG 550... advice please?

Re: JEM 555 worth the money?

I have 2 Jems and a 550 and a few other ibanez. I love the Jems. My favorite is the Floral. Dont get a new one though. The necks are bigger and too chunky. Something around the early-mid 90's would be best. Dont get a Korean one either. (my girlfriend is Korean)...the Koreans make fantastic girls but lousy guitars.

Re: JEM 555 worth the money?

Dude go for it! I have one and because Im left handed it's the only JEM for me. I love it it has a great action and do to common problems with the trem I have
no no problems.

Re: JEM 555 worth the money?

Definitly do it dude. It has one the fastest necks ive ever played. Only bad theing is the trem

Re: JEM 555 worth the money?

I find the Jem guitars very good,with very deep melodic sound , but I suggest that you by a new guitar better than the old one.That way you won't have any problems with "buzzing" frets or some other part of the guitar that has to be changed because it's used too much.The RG's are good guitars with the good sound.I have the Jem555WH,and for you probbably the best thing to do is to wait for a while to save some more money to by a new one,you can do it....everyone can.That's my opinion.

Re: JEM 555 worth the money?

I want the ultimate guitar and won't mine buying the jem7wht but will it just be the same features as the jem555. Will the jem555 save a cuple of hundred bucks

Beginning guitar

My 8 year old son wants to learn how to play guitar. Which one would be best. He is saving his own money, and this is a starting point, so I'd appreciate advice for the best and most reasonably priced. Thank you.

Re: Beginning guitar

Electric or acoustic? if he doesn't mind it would possibly be better to start on acoustic. Start out with a cheaper, basic model, between £35-£50, or if electric, get a second hand model (about £60) -new cost about £100 for a very basic model. Buy locally, ask about quality or if you have any guitarist friends, take them along. If the guitar sounds good and price is ok you can't go wrong. For beginners there is no need to go chasing up the most desirable brands, most acoustics sound alike! Good luck G

Re: Beginning guitar

I'm selling my old electric guitar, hard case, amp, and synth thingy, and will throw in about 5 books. This is what I learnt on. electircs are easier to learn on, as the neck is smaller, but as my teacher always said 'your mistakes are also put through the amp!' so it doesn't necissarily sound worse.
£190 for whole set up
(see eariler post)

either call me 07789696319 or email for more info on what I'm selling

Re: Beginning guitar

what acoustics are pretty quality for a beginner?

Re: what model ibanez do I own?Heres the specs

What guitar does Trey Anastasio play in Guitar World

In this month's issue of GUITAR WORLD magazine, they have an article on Trey Anastasio and his new album. They show a picture of him playing a really sweet looking browny-goldish hollowbody. PLEEZE tell me what it is.
thanx

Re: What guitar does Trey Anastasio play in Guitar World

I just posted some info under Sweet Guitar...now, what the heck is it? - Bo Jangles 21:30:52 5/29/02.
Hope this helps.

Re: What guitar does Trey Anastasio play in Guitar World

Trey uses a custom-handmade full-hollow-body electric made by Paul Languedoc (also Phish's soundman). His strings are DR handmade strings.

Mountain manufactured acoustic guitar

Anyone heard of this brand and what is the going price these days for one. My ancient info is that they were sued by Martin and went out of business!! Any current information greatly appreciated!!
Thanks!!

Re: Mountain manufactured acoustic guitar

I face a similar situation. I purchased a higher end Mountain acoustical guitar at a large San Diego, CA musice store. It was retailing at $625 and I paid $434 for it. After taking lessons for 6 months from an advanced teacer, I gave up but still have the guitar. It has a light front (maple?) with a dark back, pear inlay at every other fret and around the opening and outside perimeter. It's a beauty and has a perfect mellow sound. I'd like to sell it but can't seem to find a way to price it right. Help!?

020519-midi guitar questions.

I'm a guitar player (hobbiest) hoping to purchase a system to assist with software notation entries and also doing some research for a school paper.

That is, I am a newcomer to the world of midi electronics and software notation and would like some upfront information about the following:

My goal is to play my acoustic guitar, including complex strumming and picking and have that music documented with notation software. I've been told both that I need a midi interface for the guitar and that I don't.
Without a midi interface I don't see how the software would know what strings I am plucking when it comes to writing in tab form or even 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 note chords in the standard format.

Also, after a couple hours on the Internet, it is still not clear what sort of setup I will need and if there is a notational software that can handle the complex strummin parts.

Can someone please help this newcomer and explain about how this technology works, the equipment in what sort of setups is best, and what products are truly up to the task.

Re: 020519-midi guitar questions.

Try Blue Chip Music's Axon AX-100 guitar to midi converter with a piezo pickup. A bit expensive but the finest stuff around.

Pantera On AX1000g

i almost Surf the Net and i cant find any patches for my AX1000g sounds Like Pantera! Can u Help Me Guys!

Re: Pantera On AX1000g

I have a patch for Dyme's lead work that is absolutely incredible, but it sounds somewhat thin (because it's a mainly lead channel) for chords. Still, it nails Dyme's lead sound dead on. E-mail me with your address and I'll send the patch to you if you'd like

7string jackson

what kind of quality is a jackson 7string that has
a floidrose tremmello and duncan design pickups and a
nutlock and is made in japan

Re: 7string jackson

: what kind of quality is a jackson 7string that has

: nutlock and is made in japan

Made in Japan would suggest Pro series, as would the Duncan Designed pickups.

The Performer Series (the cheapest range circa '00)used to be made in Japan, but these only had Jackson pickups.

What body shape is the guitar? I think the guitar must be a good few years old (perhaps as many as 10). as far as I'm aware the last 7 strings JAckson made were the DX7 (Fixed bridge Dinky stlye with 2 hums and reversed headstock) and also the RR7, a fixed bridge Rhandy Rhodes body, also with a Reversed headstock.

I can't think of any with a trem, but maybe you should search for some old catalogues. Google!
