Re: "Faster playability"?

Hey. I found this by accident doing a search on google, but it doesn't look like anyone else answered it. A faster neck on an electric guitar will be thinner (.780" at the nut and 12th fret), have a flatter fingerboard radius (16"), low action, thicker frets, be scalloped, and have a satin or natural finish (such as wenge). If you made a neck with all those characteristics, it would take some getting used to, but theoretically you'd be able to play much faster once you get used to it.

: Hi everyone. I was learning some Malmsteen stuff, having a hard time. Someone recommended getting a guitar with "faster playability." What does that mean? What makes a guitar quicker to play? Frets? Type of neck? Thickness of neck? Curvature of fretboard??

: What type of specs do fast players, like Malmsteen or Satriani or Vai use? Thanks much!!

Ibanez: "Faster playability"?

On a related note, I have an Ibanez S-series. Would this be considered a guitar with "fast playability"? What other guitars would you recommend for faster play?

Thanks a lot!

Re: Mandolin Wind

try www.etabs.org/tab/rod_stewart/mandolin_wind

Floyd Rose locking nut system

I have a Ibanez RG320 model. Its my first Ibanez-love the guitar but pain in the ass tuning. Need to know how to adjust tuning after Ive locked the strings down. Also, trying to find tabs to an old April Wine song from the 70s called "roller" or "shes a roller" Killer triple guitar-have all the rhythm but really want the triple lead! Thanx.

Re: Floyd Rose locking nut system

On the rear of the floyd there are some thumb screws that stick up on top...not the screws that lock the strings to the bridge. Turn them clockwise to raise the pitch of the string and counter clockwise to lower it.

Tabs-April Wine

Looking for tabs for an old April Wine song from the 70s called "Roller" or "Shes a Roller". No luck. Killer triple guitar!! I have all the rhythm but need tab or if someone can tell me what scale the triple is -at least I could figure it out from there. Thanx

can someone do something about these stupid pop-ups

Jesus Christ! You can't do anything on this site without a friggin pop-up. Enough is enough. If we don't look at it the first time what makes a person think we might look at it the 50th time?

Re: can someone do something about these stupid pop-ups

what they said, yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i need help identifying the model of my kay guitar.

it has an arch top with a glue on neck it was made in chicago... has a herrigbone style binding and a trapeze tail piece... it's thought to be made late 50's early 60's.. if u can help please let me know by email..thanks

Re: i need help identifying the model of my kay guitar.

That's a tough call. Kay made a TON of guitars. Dating them and naming them is nearly impossible. Most folks don't really even try anymore. It's one of those guitars that's meant to be enjoyed or ridiculed depending on how much you like it. Labeling it will only make it mad.

searching for the make of a guitar...

Has anyone seen the new Shania Twain video I'm Gonna Getcha Good??..Her guitarist has a guitar I've been wanting for a while.I first saw the guitar in the movie American History X..And I have no idea who makes it..Can anyone please help me out??!! Thanks!

Re: searching for the make of a guitar...

Forget it, they're prototypes. Both of them, the one with the sustain bow
and the one with the steel tube frame (look-through hole between the pickups).
They've been around for, well, five years, so since Am.HistoryX is no bad guess.
Never been released, for all I know. I'm gonna e-mail guitarist Brent Barcus and ask him.

Re: searching for the make of a guitar...

thanks anyway....i found out who the make is..roland g-707...seemns theyre pretty pricy despite the fact they have been discontinued since 86'...

Need help with amp.

I recently bought a guitar with an amp for pretty cheap, the guy just wanted to get rid of it, I have a problem though, The amp doesn't work. I plug it in and there's a humming noise from the amp itself i think, but whenever i try to play something no sound comes out. Any one got any ideas and possible fixes for it? Thanks.

Custom Pick Guard for Gibson SGs, Metal Finish

I recently made a custom Pick Guard for my Gibson Tony Iommy SG, it's made out of premium metal laminate with phenolic backing. The finish looks awesome in a black guitar!

If anyone is interested in purchasing these pick guards at a price lower than the stock plastic pick guards, email me at ricky@litrade.net. To see the finish please visit http://www.litrade.net/metal.jpg

These guards will come pre-drilled to be used with the same screws that your SG has. To the best of my knowledge it will fit the following SGs:

Les Paul/SG, Tony Iommy SG, '61 Re-Issue SG, Les Paul SG Special Historic Collection, Les Paul SG Standard Historic Collection
