any1 selling a Mosrite Ventures Guitar

i need a white Mosrite Ventures Guitar like the 1 Kurt Cobain has in "Heart-Shaped Box"....

Re: any1 selling a Mosrite Ventures Guitar

the guitar in the "heart shaped box" video is actually a mosrite copy by a company called Univox. I believe they aren't made anymore but you can find some on Ebay. the prices aren't too bad but will probably need adjustments to work decently.

Re: any1 selling a Mosrite Ventures Guitar

: i need a white Mosrite Ventures Guitar like the 1 Kurt Cobain has in "Heart-Shaped Box"....

I've seen sseveral different colored Mosrites at guitar shows, but never a white one. I own a
1970 sunburst which I had signed by The Ventures about 5 years ago. I'm also looking for a
white one.
Good luck !

amp selection

I recently purchased a Les Paul Standard Guitar that I am really impressed with. I have yet to purchase an amplifier. My favorite group is the Eagles. I would love to get somewhere close to the sounds that they make. I'm not in a group. Just making music for me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Amps

If you want a good amp with a nice clean, reverb tone and a nice crunch channel i recommend Marshalls, i play an 80 Watt solid state (new approx £320, used £200) and the sound is gorgeous.
To check out reviews on all amps, i strongly recommend Harmony Central Database, has all makes etc and easy to see what others people think, sorry can;t remember the address, just do a search on google.
If the eagles have a website, check out which type of stuff they use there, that ,may give ya some ideas.

Re: amp selection

i strongly suggest Mesa\Boogie, Randall, Vox, Peavey, and fender amps. I currently use mesa, randall, and peavey. they are all good amps.

Re: amp selection

Joe Walsh uses a carvin amp today, its a Carvin Bel Air.

I'd say look into Fender tube amps, Marshall tube amps would be a maybe too.

Turner Guitars

Hi everybody!! I am an electric guitar maker and am currently undertaking the construction of a copy of a Turner Model 1 (Lyndsey Buckingham) guitar. The problem I have is that because of their rarity I can't find one anywhere to measure up. I've got as much info as I can by studying photos on the 'net and getting my dimensions by using the (known)scale length as a datum. The real difficulty is the actual profiling of the body, this is a "cylindrical" shape according to Rick Turner!! I've never actually seen one of the instruments "In the flesh", but I've loved them for years and always promised myself I'd build one someday......well, someday has arrived!!! So if anyone knows of the whereabouts of one of these beautiful guitars that I would be able to have a look at, I'd be very pleased to hear from you. I live in Lancashire and would be willing to travel up to 100 miles to see one. I also get up to Edinburgh and down to Hereford quite a lot so anywhere around these areas would be great.

Thanks a lot
David.

Re: Turner Guitars

Hi David,

to be honest: Let it be. There is not a single chance to copy a Rick Turner Model One. I have seen it at the NAMM Show, Rick is a one of a kind luthier, one you will find only one time in a thousand years...
Sorry, W.Terne

Hotels in Edinburgh

Hi all:

I've just got back from a 2 week vacation, having booked my hotel online (which I hadn't done before) on a friend's recommendation. It turned out very well, so I thought I'd let people know. The site's called Top Hotel Discounts, and they have good list of <b><a href="http://www.top-hotel-discounts.com/?city=Edinburgh&country=UNITED%2525252525252525252525252525252520KINGDOM">hotels in Edinburgh</a></b>.
Hope you find it useful.

Re: Turner Guitars

David,

I have an AutoCAD drawing of the Model 1 if you'd like it. It is accurate.

leonardo telecaster bass - 1960's ? need info!

if you anything about leonardo japanese basses from the 60's or 70's please get in touch, thanks.

Re: leonardo telecaster bass - 1960's ? need info!

: if you anything about leonardo japanese basses from the 60's or 70's please get in touch, thanks.
Iam not aware of this bass . What is it? I have a 1971 tele bass. all original. four bolt on neck. sunburst. all original. It is worth about $2500-$3000. IT is the last of the really good Fenders made in america. THis is not the one with the three bolt neck and humbuckers. That came later. They reiontroduced the telecaster bass in 1968. My neck plate says 1966. However. They did not put these into production until 68. If you have a telecaster bass made in the 1960,s it had toi have been made between 68 and 69. It is worth a lot of money if it is all original.

Custom Yamaha Strat Style

I bought a nice used Yamaha SE-203 strat style guitar
about 12 years ago. I quite like this guitar. Over the
past 12 years I have been customizing it to my liking.
I added a Schaller free floating bridge with locking head stock. Seymour Duncan SH4-JB twin humbucker at the bridge postion. A Fender Texas Special in the neck position, and stock still, for now, in the middle position. I have no intention to sell this guitar as I love to play it. With that pick up combination I can switch to screamin' whammy bar Van Halen style music to Stevie Ray Vaughn blues without swapping guitars. I
am curious though what it might be worth. I was thinking somewhere in the 250 to 300 dollar range. Too high?

Keith

Re: Custom Yamaha Strat Style

I have one with stock pick ups, and on E-bay I've seen one go for 100.00 $usd
I bought mine used for about 150.00 $ cndn
Do you Know where I can have the specs for that yamaha Se 203

Digitech Whammy Reissue vs Original

well i finally decided to get a digitech whammy pedal off of ebay, but i have one problem: i dont know whether i should get the whammy original or reissue. the reissue is normally $130 off of ebay vs the original ranging from $350-$450. but ive head that the sound from the reissue is more digital while the original sounds more like youre hjust bending the strings
