How Do I Change The Strings On My Guitar???

Hey all,
I recently bought a Fender DG-11 Accoustic and I am left handed and I want to change the strings, any tips? I'm scared I might damage the strings, e mail me, thanx

Re: How Do I Change The Strings On My Guitar???

Yo, alright i'll feel pitty, you must have just gotten your guitar. Well if its an acoustic you have to take out the pins in the bridge. but do this AFTER you have taken all of the tension out of the strings. Simply unwind the strings, pull out the pins, get new stings, and wind. the only tip i have is before you wind pull the string about four inches from the fret board, and then start to wind. you need enough string to wind. Thats about it. go get em tiger. later

My all-time favorite guitar...

My all-time favorite guitar is a Dixon I bought in the early 70's. It is a copy of the Gibson Dove, but personally, I think it sounds better. I can't find anything about the worth of the guitar, however. Given the cost of the Gibson Dove and the way this one plays, I'm curious about the value. Can you tell me anything about it?

rating twelve string guitars

I recently purchased a Gibson J 185 twelve string guitar. I like it very much. How would you rate this guitar with those being produced by other copanies such as Taylor and Guild? What in your opinion are the Gibson's strong and not so strong points?

How low temperature effects electric guitars

My question is regarding the use of guitars outdoors in wintertimes. Down to which temperature is the handling of the tuning no big problem. Below which temperature could the guitar be unreversibly demaged?

Re: How low temperature effects electric guitars

i dunno but to guess, probably would have the same effect as heating it up?
i wouldn't take any guitar out in the temps at the mo- below 0- not at all- but i'm paranoid about damaging my guitar...
Don't let it get wet, whatyever ya do.
Any reasonable difference in temp will effect a guitar- eg tuning going out. G

Sorry i slept thru my physics classes at high school.

guitar question

hi. i would like to know if anyone knows if fernandes made a warlock style electric guitar? I have a warlock guitar and it says fernandes on the neck by the tuner knobs, and i can't find any other guitar like it from fernandes. so if any one could help me i would appreciate it.

Re: guitar question

Yes, they made Warlocks, Biches, Eagles and Mockingbirds. All had an 'F'on the headstock. Like Kasuga had 'K'' on the headstock.
I could scan you some catalogs. Mail me if you'd like that. greetings

Getting Good Tone out of my Patches

Alright, I'm not at some basic level anymore, and i bought this sweet rack mount Oberhiem GM-100, and this thing sounds great, well so i thought. and so, i've sent my crap around, and some people with a studio told me "i was the best lead player they'd ever heard." So feeling cocky, i sent away my audition tapes to berklee College Of Music in Boston, and i got harsh comments back. I got, on a scale of 1 to 8 a 3.8 for tone. i was like what?! $1200 and you gonna tell me bad tone?! i use all good tones and stuff, but i need help in how patches really work. John Petrucci has a signiture tone, and i know i can't reproduce that with my rig (or any prolly for that matter!), but how much compresion should i use? how much reverb? how do you get singing sustain with out that crappy compression? Just a little help with how to create some pro sounding patches would be sweet. later.
Rob

Re: Getting Good Tone out of my Patches

I think your problem isn't your tone... from the way you write,It might be because you are in love with yourself (well and your tone probably sucks as well, I mean everyone can't be wrong) Hope this helps...

come on

you dont buy tone buddy, its in your fingers. try not concentrating on your rig for a while, play on a CLEAN clean channel, and see how your fingers sound. if you could buy tone, then theoretically, anyone could have great tone without any practice, think about it.

Amp making noises!!

I recently bought a second hand Fender Stage 160..it was fine but now when im playing on my Ibanez Grx 720....it makes this crackling noise and also on my other guitar a Fender Squier, it also makes the noise.....ive tried different leads and different guitars and it still makes the noise.....help PLEASE!!!!!

Loose wires inside amp?

Ok so you've ascertained that its the amp that is wrong/ broken?
there's probably a loose connection with the circuitry/ in the "guts" of the amp. Or something short circuiting with it-
one way might be to give it a real good thump- as its probably loose wires inside, see if that makes a diffrence. Get a torch and have a look around in side it for anything obviously loose- but unplug first!

Or: talk to a friend who knows, as it's much easier to sort it by looking at it.
There are websites on the net with these kinda probs- eg wholenote.com has some pretty good stuff on that kind of thing.
Or, the usual advise, take to local guitar store and have them try to decide what the problem is. Good luck man! G

Maybe Interference??

Re: Maybe Interference??

Hey
Yeah sometimes a big amp will pick up radiostation signals, my friend's picks up Russian stations!!
This would cause a crackling noise.
Take your guitar to the shop with the amp and show them there is something wrong with it!
On the other hand, if you move it eg to the shop, and the interference stops, then it's not a problem with the amp. try asking at wholenote.com, those guys are wise.

damaged mail order guitar

I recently ordered a guitar from an online dealer. When it arrived there were minor cracks in the finish on the back of the body of the guitar. You have to hold the guitar at the right angle to the light to see the cracks. Should I bother returning the guitar? The guitar was a christmas present and it will be late if I have to return it and have them send a new one. The guitar was not expensive. It was a starter model, about $170 for the guitar and a gig bag, and some other stuff like a pitch pipe and extra set of strings, etc.
(It's a yamaha f310).

Is it likely that this crack will affect the sound, or will get worse and subsequently damage the guitar. If the person the gift is for takes to playing guitar, they'll probably buy a better guitar in a year or so.
