HELP...steps

I'm trying to get into alternate tunings, but whenever I go to a website or something,that's supposed to help, they just tell me to tune to "G" or "C". I know standard tuning is at the 5th fret on the 6th string and that Drop D is at the 7th fret, but where would I fret if I wanted to tune the 6th string to "C" from standard tuning, to "B", etc. etc. I don't have a digital tuner, so I have to tune verything by ear. Any help you can give me would be appreciated.

Multi-Tracker to Burner HELP!!!

Hello, I am in a small underground band and we are recording our first demo cd. We are recording on a ZOOM multi-tracker, what is the best way to put it on CD? It says to use a digital or RCA input on a computer sound card, but I can't find anyone with those kinds of ports. What is a cheap sound card model that would work? Is RCA or Digital better, and how significantly?

Thanx,
Johnny

Pricing for old guitar???

I have an old acoustic dreadnought style guitar (Aria, model 9420) I bought in 1977. It only cost a couple hundred dollars back then so it can't be worth much now. But, depite its low cost, it has outstanding projection, especially base tones, and decent action all the way up the neck. Its in almost perfect condition having only been used for family sing-a-longs when the kids were growing up. Now, kids are gone and it sits for months at a time between being played. So, I'm going to sell it but I don't have a clue how much to ask for it...can't be much but I still want to ask a fair price. I'd appreciate some help.

floyde rose

How do I tune the floyde rose.

Re: floyde rose

Start by taking an allen wrench and loosing the screws that hold down the locking nut. Adjust your fine tuners (the screw posts stickin up on the bridge), to about a halfway position. Tune the guitar using the tuners on the headstock. When it's in tune firmly tighten the screws on the locking nut. Then use the fine tuners on the bridge to do the fine adjusment on your tuning. If you need any more help let me know.

Re: floyde rose

how do u adjust the bridge

HAS ANY ONE PUT EMG 81 PICKUPS ON A EPIPHONE SPECIAL GUITAR

has any one put emg pickups on a epiphone special?

Re: HAS ANY ONE PUT EMG 81 PICKUPS ON A EPIPHONE SPECIAL GUITAR

no, but i imagine it would sound ;ike putting them in a les paul special since they're both made from mahogony.

Re: HAS ANY ONE PUT EMG 81 PICKUPS ON A EPIPHONE SPECIAL GUITAR

Don't bother man, the guitar is a piece of shit, I should know since I have one. It's a waste to put EMGs on it.

Re: HAS ANY ONE PUT EMG 81 PICKUPS ON A EPIPHONE SPECIAL GUITAR

: has any one put emg pickups on a epiphone special?

My first guitar was an Epiphone Bully, which is much like the SG Special. I have been looking up reviews and such for forever, just to figure out which pickups i want to put in it. Basically, from what I've read, EMG's are the perfect pickups for any guitar. They're hot, with fat tones, no hum, and great clean - you can't go wrong.
I should do ads for EMG. But seriously, they are a really good choice. And they're sweet looking.

Re: HAS ANY ONE PUT EMG 81 PICKUPS ON A EPIPHONE SPECIAL GUITAR

Yes i put an emg81 on bridge with the preamp booster. It wakes the dead, rock on.......

Westone Thunder 2 Bass info needed

I have just bought a Westone Thunder 2 Bass guitar in beautiful condition for 50 pounds. It plays well, and comes with a very tatty, shaped case. Was this guitar worth the money? Any information regarding this subject would be most appreciated - especially any info relating to the battery driven internal circuitry. Please reply to

Thanks.

Basically you have bought a bargain. I have owned a Thunder III bass from new (bought around 1985) which cost around £295 back then and has through neck, active electronics and twin pickups. The company that made them, (Matsumoku in Japan) also made Aria Pro II guitars. Westone build quality is hard to fault and I have heard people who know a lot more about guitars than me, say that you need to spend £600 or upwards to find anything better. May only advice is get a decent hard case for it - mine rewards this by staying in tune even after being in the case for months.

I also bought a Thunder III in about 85 - I got it because it was the first bass i heard which sounded great plugging straight into the line in of a mixing desk, so pirncipally bought it as a studio tool. However, once I got to grips with the complexities of the astounding number of combinations you could create through having active/passive electronics, coil tap, out-of-phase switch, pick up selection etc, it became my fave live bass, and has been my main fretted instrument ever since. Saw on another site that they were designed by an ex-Alembic employee!
Build quality is very good - robust, well-balanced, beautifully finished. The Thunder IIIa had gold trim and a brass nut, the Thunder III black and poly nut, I think. A mate had the IIIa but it sounded the same (He's still got his too!). If you get one, NEVER SELL IT!!!

Re: Westone Thunder 2 Bass info needed

You lucky person. I bought one new in 1981 for £275.00
Still plays perfectly and giged every weekend.
I guess it is the through neck 24 fret version cos after about 6 months of production they chopped off the top 2 frets to allow more room for slapping/picking.
Would love to buy it if you were selling.
regards
keith

REPLACEMENT PICKUP'S

REPLACEMENT PICKUP'S

WHAT PICKUP'S WOULD ANYBODY RECOMEND FOR Heavy metal music, bands like Slayer Slipknot etc. I need a pickup with high output and lots of gain
as long as there not Emg's there the pickup's im changing there a realy bad pickup wouldnt recomend them at all

Re: REPLACEMENT PICKUP'S

High output high gain...Dimarzio X2N, Duncan Distortion, Duncan Invader, Bill Lawrence XL500...also check out the carvin line at carvin.com (they make some awsome humbuckers). If you go to Seymour Duncan and Dimarzio's websites they have tone charts that break down their specs.

Good luck

Tele Troubles

I want to make my telecaster sound thicker, and more humbucker-like. I know this is a tough job to do, and if I really wanted to get that tone just sell the tele and get a humbucker guitar, but I love the clean sounds of the Tele. What I have to work with is a marshall Mg250DFX, a boss ds-1 distortion pedal, and a boss mt-2 metal zone pedal. Any help is appreciated, I'm just a little clueless that's all.

Rex

Re: Tele Troubles

You can't really change much in the way of the guitar except the pickups. You could look in to single coil slot humbucker, or stacked humbuckers...and they'll give you the humbucker sound. Or look in to EMG passive single coils, they're pretty noiseless and have a good tone.

Good luck

Making a guitar

Can any body give me some idea's on where to find information on the procedures on making a guitar.

Re: Making a guitar

I've never come across a good source of free information on guitar building. I've just learned the hard way with a little wood working knowledge, theory, and common sense...for electrics, anyway. You might just want to start with a public library and see what books they have. It's hard to buy them because most book stores don't carry books on guitar construction and on the internet it's hard to tell what you're getting before you buy it. If you need any tips on making electrics I'll give you whatever advice/help that I can. I just don't have the shop space to attempt an acoustic yet so I can't offer much help there.

Re: Making a guitar
