Wiring for POD foot controller?

having a little trouble

i just got a new electric guitar/amp package. everything worked fine for a few days...but now when i plug in, i get nothing. (the volume is up, the amp is plugged in etc.) i can't figure out what it wrong...is it just a crappy cord, or is it something else. Any help would be great. thanks.

Re: having a little trouble

To test it out, you can do a few things...
1. To test the amp: Plug the cord into the amp, turn on the amp and turn the volume up a bit (say halfway). Grab the plug that would go into the guitar with your hand. It should make a buzzing sound if the amp is working. (I'm not trying to electrocute you, its perfectly safe).
2. To test the guitar: Try to borrow a friend's amp, take your guitar to a friend's house that has an amp, or take your guitar to a local music store and see if they'll let you plug into one of theirs to see if its your guitar that's not functioning.

3. To test the cord: If 1 and 2 check out ok, it's probably the cord. Buy a new one.

Do I have to drill into my new Gibson to put on a pick guard??

i torn in the situation, i would like, not to have to put any holes in my "baby". is there any possibility of this. and if i have to drill holes, who should i take it to to get it done?

Re: Do I have to drill into my new Gibson to put on a pick guard??

If this guitar is an acoustic. You will not have to drill holes. If you drill holes, you should drill a few in your head while you're at it. If it's an electric, you may have to, but why bother?

Find a good teacher in your town. There is no substitute for good quality instruction, especially when you are beginning.

1962 Harmony Stratotone 1p/u & knobs

I need advice on wher eI can get a new pickup or enhance the on ethat I have now. It works but is somewhat diminished in its effectiveness. As well, i would like to know what the knobs looked like on my model. I don't know if they are original or not? I have a 1 p/u, tortoise guard 3 knob . natural color with ivory edging front and back. And could anybody help me with what it may be worth? Its in great shape ( no scratches ) Thanks for you help

Re: 1962 Harmony Stratotone 1p/u & knobs

I've had one of those guitars for years and just now found out what it was. The pickup is supposed to be a DeArmond, but I couldn't tell you where to find one or how to fix it. Mine works great. Do you still have the guitar? The knobs on mine are "knurled" -- little ridges running down the sides.

Memorizing the guitar fretboard

Anyone working at memorizing your fretboard should check out the Fretboard Warrior program. I've been doing this since a while and I've already doubled my speed. It's fun and it's free.

how do i change my guitar strings

i have a squire strat. and i would like to know what kinda of strings should i get and how can i change me strings. tank you

Re: how do i change my guitar strings

Go with nine's...remove the original strings...put the new ones in with the opposite procedure

Re: how do i change my guitar strings

: Go with nine's...remove the original strings...put the new ones in with the opposite procedure

Something that I've found that helps, that most new players aren't aware of when changing strings. I try to get as many wind's around the tuning peg as I can, without over lapping them. This will help your tuning stability, especially if you have a tremelo/whammy. Also, changing your strings is also a great time to clean, polish and check the guitar itself! You can purchase stuff like "Martin Guitar Polish" or other brands, but I've found over the years that "Old English" funature polish works the best. If your guitar has a rosewood or ebony fretboard, its also a good time to oil your fretboard a little (depending on how often you change your strings, you may not want to do this -every- time, but its a good time to inspect). You may also want to check out www.Fender.com and look under the "Mr Gearhead" stuff...there's allot of other helpful DIY info there, you should find very useful.

For string sizes themselves, there is no right or wrong size...its all a matter of personal taist. If your new to playing, you may want to stick with 8's or 9's as they are -allot- easier on new fingers with little or new calluses :-) However, if your looking for better tone, then 10's or 11's may be in order...the thicker the string, the better the sound usually. One thing to keep in mind if you do change sizes...you will probably also need to check/reset the intonation. This is done by adjusting the saddles under the strings at the bridge...you can find more info about this also at the Fender/Mr. Gearhead website. Fender bullets are pretty good strings if you have a Strat or strat copy, however personally, I am a long time fan of GHS "Boomers"...they seem to have a nice balance between tone and durability. Anytime I've ever tried some other brand of strings, I always have come back to the boomers...but this is a personal taist thing as well.

Good luck and gentle breezes towards the future!

how do I put in a guitar string?

Recently, one of my band members decided to customize my guitar. He took one string out, and now it has 5 strings and not 6. I'm trying to put the first string back in the guitar, but I don't know how. He didn't show me how to put it back in either. I need some help, badly, because my guitar sounds horrible with the first string gone.

Hi Yohaun
First of all Marshall`s ain`t what ther cracked up to be.But to solve this problem iI would go back to basics,Guitar and amp nothing else.See what you can get out of amp and guitar make sure your using a guitar cord not speaker cable this has burned me before.I would take a hard look at pickups were you want death metal put a bad ass pickup in that puppy.
Now to solve the d.o.d. problem a sutable trash can will do no insult intended this is serious stuff to us guitar players.I would recomend a all tube preamp
i don`t now every company that makes them but Dan at lustone.com makes one that kicks ass this will take away some crapy sounds being made by solid state preamps.I find that most effects hurt the mids so i just plug my guitar into my boogie and wind her up.But i`m not after metal crunch .Don`t get sucked into boogie/marshall preamps they may claim to be tube but they lie just a littel.Give dan a call .
