Re: help!!!

It would probably be good for a beginner. Unfortunately once you figure out your playing style, likes/dislikes, etc. you'll probably want something different and a little more high end. I would say go for it. For the money it would be a good buy.

Buzzing Amp

I have a crate amp head and a marshal cabinet. My guitar is a jackson. I purchased the crate last year. Ever since I got the crate, it has had a buzzing noise. The noise gets a little better when I move away from the amp; but not enough. I was told by others that this was typical of crates. I was thinking of buying a volume pedal. But my old guitar player had one and it reduced the quality of his sound. I like the sound of my crate and want to keep it but I need to resolve this. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Intonation question- all notes are sharp

When my guitar is in tune at the nut all notes are slightly sharp, mainly on acoustic! Does anyone know why this is and how to fix?
Thanks

Re: Intonation question- all notes are sharp

: When my guitar is in tune at the nut all notes are slightly sharp, mainly on acoustic! Does anyone know why this is and how to fix?
: Thanks

It means the bridge is too close to the nut. You can either adjust it further back, if it is adjustable, lower the action some, if that is adjustable, try lighter guage strings, or just live with it.

If an acoustic guitar is old and the top is bowed, it will raise the action and cause this.

Daion guitar/bass/other serial numbers

To all, I am currently assembling a list of serial numbers by the long defunct Daion company. If you have a Daion, additional info, know someone who has a Daion, or know someone who has any additional info, please email me at the addy above, or visit my website, Daions Online at :http://home.att.net/~daion/index.html Thanx

Re: Daion guitar/bass/other serial numbers

Hi,

I've bought a Daion Power Mark XX a few month ago in Paris. I didn't know about Daion, but the guitar made me a strong impression on me as soon as I saw it through the shop window. So I enter the shop immediately and ask for a try. I was a little bit puzzled: on the one hand I never heard about Daion (so that I was saying to myself it could not be really a great instrument), on the other hand I became very enthusiastic while playing the guitar: the action was so easy, the neck so comfortable, the sustain so fantastic. And it was so beautiful ! I was understanding that the guitar was probably something rare. The price (about 850 Euros) seemed to me quite reasonable for a such quality (in France guitars have become quite expensive for many years) so I decided to buy it.

A few days later I decided to have a look on the web to see if something was said about the mysterious Daion Power Mark XX and I discovered a few sites (and especially yours) that comfirmed my initial feeling.

The model I own is the same as the one presented on pictures of Daion's catalog, page#18 (great idea to make these pages available on the web). I'm really happy to be the owner of this model.

I mail you back as soon as I have read the serial number.

Cheers

Roland

Re: Daion guitar/bass/other serial numbers

Hi there,

Two years ago I bought a Daion Power Mark X serial number 820688. I bought for 175 Pounds (GBP). Like that French chap I was impressed and equally puzzled. It seemed too good. I have no intention of selling my Daion as I really love playing it. I am afraid I haven't visited your site yet because I was too eager to write this message first. Please mail me if you want to know more. I can send you pictures as well.

Re: Daion guitar/bass/other serial numbers

Hi,
Happened to find your website on Daions. I have a "mint" condition "The '78" serial 80032014 I bought for my wife in 1978 for her birthday. It was seldom used and has a couple of minute dings on the front (and a very light scratch on the back. These are only noticeable because the rest of the guitar is absolutely perfect condition. Bought it from H&H Music in Houston with a hardcase, for about $480. From a catalogue on another website, it would be the "Heritage" model, as it is cedar--a very beautiful piece of work. Its my wife's keepsake--she would never sell it.
Just thought I would let you know about this one.

Re: Daion guitar/bass/other serial numbers

I have an Dion Semi Acoustic, but i have this thing about 5 yaers and i don't know anything about it, the frets are realy worn so have te put somebody put new on it. The Serial number is 830798.

Hi, I own a near perfect "the 82" Jumbo acoustic Daion, serial #, 825158 D. I was trained as a luthier at Taylor Guitars in San Diego. This older instrument caught my eye at a guitar shop in Crossville Tn. The condition was only one of set-up neglect, so I did my thing and WOW! what a great player. The brass inlays are different, and the maple binding

is reminiscent of the early Taylors , the quality is much the same. I am glad I rescued this well made instrument... however I will part with it.... firm at $600.00 includes molded light-weight case and brass bridge-pins. condition is between excellent and mint. Thanks guys! good to see your site, regards, Anthony Zarola

Re: Daion guitar/bass/other serial numbers

:I bought a Daion Power Mk XX back in 1980 barnd new in the most gorgeous translucent green finish. At the time, I was using a Les Paul Gold Top Deluxe which I thought was the ultimate - then I got the Daion. The only problem I found was the pickups had a habit of squealing like a banshee when used with a high gain/high volume amp but apart from that it was pure heaven. Unfortunately, I was forced to sell it a few years later due to severe finacial problems and I regretted it since - especially since they are so rare now. I had the luck to come across another Power Mk XX in a Tan finish and snapped it up without a second thought. I will e-mail serial number details soon. TIP: unscrew the control cavity on the back and you should find a number in pencil under the finish. Mine was 124.

Re: Daion guitar Headhunter

Re: Daion guitar/bass/other serial numbers

active pickups

i just orderd a b.c rich beast 4 string bass and did not notice that on the web site it said it had an active pickup on it,i was just wondering dose that mean that it is battery powerd or dose it actually have to say battery powerd active pickup,or if there were two differnt kinds of active pickups!

Re: active pickups

Basically it means that you have to have a battery or it won't put out anything. It's cool, though, because one 9v battery will last you hundreds of hours of playing.

Re: active pickups

Active pickups means that is REQUIRES A 9V BATTERY to operate. As long it is active, a battery is required.

Best value?

Hey could someone tell me one of the best electric guitars for under 200$? Just give me a rough guess. Right now I am looking at a Squier- Standard- Double Fat Strat. It's a step up from my guitar. But could someone please tell me what is "fat"? Does fat mean the neck is a little bigger, or the frets are longer?

Thanks for any help!

floyd hassles--string bending

I'm totally irritated with my floyd. How can I keep other strings
from going flat when I bend? I was thinking of blocking
the pullback and making the springs super-tight, but that
seems extreme. I'm not a tremolo expert, but I know that
my old Kahler never had this problem. I don't see why
everyone says floyds are the best. Help me understand.
Thanks.

Re: floyd hassles--string bending

The Floyd Rose system is based on a KNIFE-FULCRUM or "floating bridge" system.The bridge itself is held only by springs and string tension while freely pivoting on the trem-posts.It's extremely sensitive to neck and string tension.WHEN BENDING STRINGS the bridge will rock foward,increasing the string length,pulling the other strings out of tune!
Also,if you pop a string,YOU'RE FUCKED!The whole guitar goes out of tune and you have to cut of the ball end of another string to replace it.Playing Live...you'd better have another guitar ready.

THE UP-SIDE:Floyds can dive futher than Kahlers and you can do more tricks with them because they're so damn sensitive!

KAHLERS(well mine does)use a kind of roller spring aparatus thats housed in the bridge itself.The whole bridge is set into the guitar body and doesn't float! So,it's not as sensitive to neck pressure or string bending.However, it's difficult to "dive" up because of it's ultra stability and you can't do as many tricks with it.If you don't do a lot of "whammy tricks",this system might work better.
Newer Kahlers(Spyder)are large blocks of metal that are so heavy,they can't move.

THE SOLUTION:With the Floyd,try adding an extra spring...maybe two.This should make the tremelo stronger and not float around so much.
"WHEW",did I just write a book??
Good Luck

Floyd goes flat

I recently built a guitar from parts. It has a Stagemaster neck, a solid washburn body, Kramer Quad Rails and a Floyd Rose from Mighty Mite. The kind where the strings load in through hollow tubes (not real common)instead of cutting the balls off and clamping. The guitar keeps going flat even with the lock nut locked tightly. I screwed in a metal spacer between the trem cavity wall and the block to keep the trem from pulling back, and loaded the claw with 5 springs just to try to eliminate the trem from the equasion. It still goes flat. The springs have been on for about a month and I have been playing it so they are certainly stretched out enough. I have heard that the lock not does not totally eliminate the tuners from the equasion, and that if the tuners are slipping then the tension on either side can be so unequal as to let the slack "leak" passed the lock nut to the guitar side of the strings. Is there any truth to this? Can anyone help me diagnose this thing?
