tremolux vs. bandmaster

I am going to purchase a vintage blackface fender amp from the mid 60s, but i'm not sure whether or not to go for a tremolux or a bandmaster. I play mostly 60's rock, surf, and ALOT of Beatles. Can anyone who has used either or both of these amps point out the pros and cons of each or simply suggest which would be better for my type of music? thanks

A Email f/ John ? in reply to his album "Fastest Guitar In The World"

hello,
im gonna type in small print since you slammed me so hard. i loved the letter
you wrote. it was good, i have to admit. i do agree that yngwie would blow me
off stage. when i see him play live, it is almost majical. he inspires me
more than any guitarist i can think of. i cannot do that on stage like he
does. i dont even try to do what he does. he is to good at what he does to be
copied by anyone. yngwie is a very close friend of a friend of mine, and
because of that i had the honor of meeting him, he actually played one of my
guitars. preety cool. i dont think yngwie liked the title to my demo either.
as a matter of fact i dont even think he likes me at all. that doesnt change
my opinion of him. i respect him for his talent. i have been inspired by alot
of players- van halen,randy rhoads, vinnie moore, tony macalpine, all of whom
who were shredding in thier own style before they heard of yngwie
malmsteen(including myself). i was a shredder before i heard of yngwie. when
ynwie came out alot of guys fuckin quite playing. one close friend of mine
said quote"this guy is playing the style i have been perfecting" he was an
awesome player, and he quite. you have to understand that yngwie was not the
first guy to shred. ask yngwie, he would tell you go listen to frank marino,
or especially uli roth, whom yngwie absolutely worships. do your homework.
dont believe me, find out for yourself. go to any search engine, and you
could verify what im saying.

as for the name of the demo"fastest guitar on earth". i knew that might raise
eyebrows, and i dont care. the cd is dedicated to the fastest guitarist on
earth whoever that may be. it even says that on the cd. am i the fastest
guitarist in the world? i doubt it. am i faster than yngwie? yes , who give
a shit. thats not why yngwie is so great. he is great because of his style.
why do you think yngwie is so insecure? i dont know, but maybe its because he
knows he is not the fastest. truth hurts. personally, i think he is fuckin
paranoid. i mean if i was that famous, and rich, i would not care who was
faster than me. what a joke! maybe that paranoia helps him and others stay on
their toes. i dont know. i do find your opinion very interesting. thanks for
the honest letter. i respect someone who has a strong opinion.

take care,
JJJ

Re: A Email f/ John ? in reply to his album "Fastest Guitar In The World"

can't find the original post, but find it weird someone would quit playing just cuz someone else is 'better or faster' than them or is pretentious enough to think quit cuz someone has 'perfected their style". Though I still like to 'shred' sometimes I mainly find it extremely boring to listen to or watch now. Being the 'fastest' dosen't really count for anything to me, speed is an essential part of playing but I would never pay just to listen to or see someone cuz they are 'the fastest', my opinion YMMV.

Re: A Email f/ John ? in reply to his album "Fastest Guitar In The World"

I heard some demos online, and John Jaunese, is indeed an amazing guitarist. Very unique and worth a listen. His blistering speed and accuracy/technique will blow many people away. I think he will defantly go to the very top of the class. Won't be long, I don't think, before his name is as common as Malmsteen, Via, Satriani and the rest. Just my opinion. But he is indeed way fucking fast and meshes several styles with ease simialar to Malmsteen, but for many won't be boring like Malmsteen. His latest album is to be released soon an I think should cause quite a stir as his demo is defantly doing that. Basicaly tripped me out. Haven't heard a new artist that good since Malmsteen. One track on his demo was written when he was 15 so lacks the extream technical abilities of his latest work.

No, I'm not his agent, and I am a die-hard Malmsteen fan, but this guy's got character and is way so fucking good.

how do I tune to ADGCFA

I have all of these taproot tabs, but I can't use them because I don't know how to tune to ADGCFA!!! Help me out...

Re: how do I tune to ADGCFA

Tune the first string to A and then go from there, use the A to tune the D.... etc.... or get an electronic tuner or one for your PC, and a baritone guitar would probally be nice for that tuning as on a regular guitar you going to be buzzing dropping that low, some string manafacturers make strings for low tunings though.

problem restringing

when restringing the ibanez s470 how u get the strings out of the whammy bar system . I can't figure it out. Please help me

question

What kind of bridge do you have? Floyd Rose? If it's a Floyd then you will need an allen wrench to loosen the screws at the back of the bridge. Pay attention to what you're doing because the new strings have to go in the same way the old ones came out. I recommend doing one string at a time. Let me know if you need any more help.

Re: question

it's a 3mm allan key, if the holder has become too deep for the allan key to reach in then you need to take the back off and remove the holder, its a pain in the arse though so try not to let that happen

Re: problem restringing

use a friggin jack hammer dumb ass

Squier Stratocaster made in USA

Hi Buddys,
Today at my local dealer in France, I found a second hand (may be third or more)Squier Stratocaster by Fender with the following serial n° on the head : 917334. It is also mentionned on the head that this guitar is made in USA.
Is somebody has already heard about Squier made in the States?
I thought they were made in Japan.
Thank you for any information/idea about the origin of this guitar.
Regards.

Marc

When Squiers fist started coming out I bought mine.It was called a Jap Vintage model,serial No. JV69642,and according to the retailer at the time the japanese did the woodwork and the Americans supplied the electronics. I believe this subsequently changed and they became a totally offsure product not long after this. On my head it says made in Japan.I suppose this doesn't help much but I thought it might add a little

Re: Squier Stratocaster made in USA

no you are not crazy, there were indeed some squiers made in usa (i have one). in The Fender Book (get one if you can!) it says as follows: "In 1990 and 1991 some USA- made Stratocaster and Telecaster bodies and necks were sent to Fender's mexican factory for preparation and finishing. They were then returned to the american plant for assembly and completion. This procedure qualified the resulting guitars to carry a 'made in usa' designation, but they were marketed under the Squier brandname."
so... it's a fender USA with a squier price. my advice: RUN AND GET IT AS LONG AS YOU CAN. i have posted a review at harmony-central.com , read it.
one of the best guitars i own. good luck!

Re: Squier Stratocaster made in USA

Just happened on your post from last year. I have also got a Squier Stratocaster with "Made in the USA" on the head. My serial number is 916004 - I bought it new in San Diego in 1992. It's been a great guitar - hope you got the secondhand one in France.
