Are you interested in selling this head? Or maybe working out a trade. I have a Marshall 3310 head, 100w, that I would be willing to part with. (I don't need 100w) As far as info try www.drtube.com - go to the mini stacks.
Take care,
Dave

Electric pickups

I need some information about how build guitar electric pickups.

Re: Electric pickups

: I need some information about how build guitar electric pickups.

Why do you want to build your own? This is fairly involved. There are a lot of books on the market, and that's the best place to start.
However, with so many good ones on the market, building your own pickups will likely cost you more than buying some readily available ones.

Later,
Bill

What is this guitar worth ??

My Larivee' has a buzz

Hello All,

My Larrivee' model D03 has a string buzzz. I know about truss bar adjustment however when peering down the sound hole I don't find a nut to screw. My wife thinks I am nuts so I find myself with a screw loose trying to solve this buzzing. I guess I could stuff something under the saddle, but I ask of you good people if there is another answer. Thanks for any response. Chow chio. Noc

EVH strat

How canI tell if a 80"s black/yellow striped Charvel EVH guitar is original?

Do Gibsons suck or what?

Lately I've been hearing that Gibson is putting out some real bad quality instruments. Even at high prices, just trading on the good name to make money. I've been told you should buy a Heritage if you want to get a decent Gibson guitar. any comments?

Re: Do Gibsons suck or what?

All I know is, every Gibson I've worked on that has been made in the last 10 years or so, has needed a lot of fret work. I level them, and then have to "finish off" the ends of the frets.... it's like they just slap the frets in there and stick it into a shipping box. The nuts are way too high as well. When I was selling Phantom and Kent guitars back in the middle 80's, I was used to having to set up an instrument before I put it on the rack; these were $150-$300 Korean instruments, and it was no big deal. For that price range, you'd expect some hurried manufacturing practices. But Gibson prices have tripled in the past 12 years or so, and they're too damn lazy to use a fret file. In my opinion, some of the best Gibsons ever made, at least from a quality control standpoint, were ones made in Kalamazoo from about '79-'82. The quality is outstanding, and they're not old enough to be considered collector's items, so they can be bought at true "used" prices. The period from '61-'64 was even better, but the prices are through the roof.

Re: Do Gibsons suck or what?

I'm going to have to agree with the rescent decline in quality. I was at guitar center cecking out a few new gibsons, and the were suprisingly crappy. The paint was terrible orangepeeled and unpolished. The hardware was really pretty cheap looking and once again scratched up and unpolished. Not to mention it just didn't play right. There is no way to describe it but it just did not feel like a gibson.(i've played better bolton samicks) I don't know what the deal is but they need to shape up. There is no way in hell I would put down a grand plus on must of these pieces.

Re: Do Gibsons suck or what?

I collect guitars and I'd agree, but I've seen about 5 that are the exception to this rule but you really can't count them there all custom shop with about $2000 weth of up grades out of the shop. personelly I know a few guys that have turned down deals with gibson cause of the workmanship is so bad. Remember Kramer thats why G. Lynch went to E.S.P. and why slash is working with Guild for new stuff , he still plays thouse 72s all the time but nothing new!!

Re: Do Gibsons suck or what?

have to agree, the zakk wylde gibson kicks major ass but the other new ones suck in a big way i've just bought an ESP ec 1000 its the best guitar i've played on !!!

Re: Do Gibsons suck or what?

i find that gibsons do suck and use the "gibson" name to charge the high price they do.. I myself play a PRS hollowbody and it is the most beautiful sounding guitar next to Trey Anastasio's custom hollowbody.
dont buy gibson they are overrated

good guitars?

i am new w/ guitars and i was tryin to see what guitars are the best...i have a hohner right now

Re: good guitars?

What type of music do you play? Do you own an acoustic, or an electric?

There are a lot of great guitars out there, and many "okay" guitars, but it really comes down to the
type of touch (string action, radius, etc.), and sound you like, and if they suit the music that you like to play. Best thing to do, is try as
many models as you can -- you'll start to notice things, particularly the things you don't like, and what the better
guitars have to offer.

Good Luck!
Bill

83 Stratocaster

OK - was looking for a Les Paul but came into this sweet deal on an 83 Strat with a mesa boogie Mk3. What is the history of the 83 - it seems pretty standard but the fellow claims that there were only 12000 made similar to this one. Heard of anything like that. Any distinguishing features to look for? Its not an elite or anything - looks like every other except the neck and fingerboard are one.

Re: 83 Stratocaster

The one thing I can think of about Strats made around '83 is that Fender tried to cut corners. They got rid of the football jack plate and put the output jack in place of the second tone pot. In addition, they used a tremolo that dropped in from the top, which didn't seem to work all that great. These don't have any routing in the back at all. The necks were usually 1-3/4" wide at the nut as well. There's nothing WRONG with one of these Strats; if it plays and sounds good, go for it, but just so you know, it's not a "normal" Strat. So far, they don't seem to be worth any less than other Strats of the era.

Takamine Question

Can anyone out there tell me if the Takamine EG 334C has a solid top or laminated. I know they know call it the EG 334SC, the "S" usually meaning solid top. But did they just change the name or is the old one laminated and the new one solid. THanks.
