Re: How could i rewire an ibanez humbucker?

That will work fine but you shoud install a 220v capacitor relay in between and add a slot for a stectoid bar.

Re: How could i rewire an ibanez humbucker?

Ok i went ahead and rewired the neck pickup so it has two outputs. I wired it all together with alligator clips so i can test it, and wow it sounds way different than it did originally -- i like it. I think i am going to leave the bridge humbucker the way it is and just use four of the switch positions for now.
A couple questions tho, what advantage would the capacitor relay give me and what is a stectoid bar, i have searched high and low on the net and have not heard of it anywhere. Im sorry if i sound like a n00b, but hey this is my first time modifying an electric guitar, i have enough knowledge about electrical wiring i think, i just dont know how most of it applies to electric guitars. Anyhow, thanks for any help you can provide!

Re: Unknown Guitar

Start with the name on the headstock (which is unreadable in the blurry pics) and search from there.

Need help learning the guitar.

I'd say I'm an intermediate by now.. I've been mainly teaching myself and at the moment I'm trying to learn the fretboard. I have this really basic system that teaches me the first 12 frets in two weeks or so.. That's if I stick to it and learn a fret (with both sharps and flats) per day. I've kind of stopped with it seeing as its boring and I'm not really learning pitch- just the names of notes.

What I really need now, is an extra kick in the butt.. Not just with this but everything guitar related.. So I've come online and have searched download.com for some good free guitar programs. Most aren't free and those that are, really aren't worth mentioning.

I did come across this though, a Certain 'Guitar Power' program.. but I have to order it after 30 days is up- elsewise it stops working. I was wondering if anyone here might have a crack for it or an even better program that's FREE.

Email me at ubediah@hotmail.com with any details, it'd be appreciated. :)

Which is better? Japanese or mexican teles?

I had the choice over a blue flower power telecaster- made in japan, or a sonic blue standard mexican telecaster. Both cost exactly the same (both were going for fairly cheap despite them not being second hand).
Which would have been the better buy, hypothetically?

I would pick a tremont JTR model but if i had to choose for you take the one from japan they are better craftsman for sure.

Japanese or mexican tails? They both are fine

how to drop D tune guitar

I know to tune your low E to the D. They said it sounds heavier, it sounds so weak. If you reply, please give me correct directions.

Re: how to drop D tune guitar

: I know to tune your low E to the D. They said it sounds heavier, it sounds so weak. If you reply, please give me correct directions.

Thats how you do it. The reason it might be weak is because of your action or string tension.

HOW THE HELL DO U DO THIS

Re: how to drop D tune guitar

Another couple things: Scale length and string guage. I have two guitars that I drop to D, one has a 25 inch scale and the other a 25.5 inch scale. The longer scale tends to produce a more gutsy sound. Also, if you use a heavier string for your E string when you do it then you put more tension on it in the flatter D tuning and you get more string energy out of it. I like to use a 52 guaged string when I down tune. Remember to check your intonation if you change string styles. Let me know if you need any more help.

Re: how to drop D tune guitar

On the 6th string hold down the second fret and tune to an E. To tell if you've done it right hold down second fret on 5th and 6th string and it should sound like a E5 power chord

Cortez guitars

Seems Cortez guitars were imported into the US from 1969-1988 by westheimer. They then vanished but reocurred as Cort? They are very much like Ibanez copies and share the spanish name. Does anyone know anything about this company? thanks in advance

Re: Cortez guitars

Re: Cortez guitars

: I was just handed down a Cortez acoustic 12 string from my sister (who had gotten it from her cousin). It has a large body and boxy shape like a Martin. The tones are nice and deep the way I like them. It's made well, has bracing similar to some of the best guitars. It lacks any internal sticker so I'm at a loss for type, serial number or year.

Re: Cortez guitars

Was trying to find out myself..I bought mine in 1978 and it still sounds great!

I have a J200 flat top. I got it out of the closet last month after nearly a 25 year rest period. It had a couple of broken strings and a lot of dust. I bought new strings, a tuner, and some books and I have been having a great time trying to remember what I used to do with it. I never was a good player, and what little I did do well I have lost. But all it took was a couple of strums to remember why I wanted to play it. I am still amazed at how good it sounds. I would also be interested in knowing what became of the company. I see where Epiphone is making an electric version and Gibson has brought it back into production as an acoustic. Gibson even has a brief history of the SJ200 on thier website.

Re: Cortez guitars

I have a small(child size?)Cortez guitars, model C301, made in Korea, seldom used (I had good intentions) so in good shape.
I am curious what it may be worth and if it would be a good beginner guitar for 8 year old granddaughter to learn on.
Thanks. 8-)

Re: Cortez guitars

I had a Cortez in the late 70's. this was a fine playing guitar and I would like to by another. I own a yamaha, fender and epiphone and the cortez i had was by far the best.
