Thanx

My Ibanez

I have an older Ibanez, blonde acoustic model M-340...
Whats-it worth???!!!

Re: M-340

: I have an older Ibanez, blonde acoustic model M-340...
: Whats-it worth???!!!

Hi, I own a M-340 with maple fretboard as well and also like to know what it's worth and when they were exactly made, because mine has no serialnumber and that usually means that it's a pre 1975 model.
In the catalog I only saw a rosewood fretboard and I was told that mine is a little more rare.
BTW, it really sounds very nice and I use him a lot, both on stage and in the studio and I have to point out that I also am the proud owner of a Martin D-35 from 1973....

Kind regards, Coos, UnderCover Studio, Zuidbroek, the Netherlands

Re: M-340

hi i also own a m-340. im a french canadian and im so sorry for my english language. i think the acoustic ibanez, model m_340 blonde is evaluated at 500$ american the year of my guitar is 1980, very nice quality and wolds lowest action. Rare maple finger board

Re: My Ibanez

Hey Dade,
I have a 1980 Ibanez M 340 with the maple fingerboard. I'm amazed at the sound each time I pick it up. The action is a little high, but it's in the process of lowering itself via Central Texas' humidity -- "Central Texas Neck." I've found a couple more maple fingerboard Ibanezes and they usually go for around three hundred to five hundred dollars--depending on condition. Hope this helps. Ciao,
G.

What do you guys reckon, which is the better guitar, The Strat delux with the lace sensors or the Standard Strat???

79 Les Paul Custom

I have a 79 Les Paul Custom #71629585, I bought used in 88. Chrome hardware, exept pickguard braket. Now hardware is pitted and I want to replace with the right stuff. Gold or chrome? And what are the names of the correct pieces? Also the color is a mistery,I thought it was a severly yellowed silverburst, but one guy said, its that cool green color. What were the options in 79? Any info or thought would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: 79 Les Paul Custom

The 79's were good.I think that was the tail-end of the Kalamazoo era.As far as hardware,I'd look at chrome instead of brass.Acid from sweat,moisture,and pollution can wreak havok on brass.My '77 has a chrome tail-piece and still shines nicely.
Good Luck

The serial number shows his '79 to be a Nashville, not a Kalamazoo. If the last three digits in the serial number are 499 or lower, it's a Kalamazoo....500 or higher means Nashville. So his S/N of 71629585 shows his guitar to be a 1979 Nashville with an approximate birthday of May 12th and it was the 185th guitar serailzed that day. That means his guitar should have Schaller tuners rather than the Grovers that would be on a Michigan model. Another big difference is that the Nashvilles had maple necks with a volute behind the nut, where as the Kalamazoos had mahogany necks and a bit smaller headstock. There are differences in the bodies too, but nevermind that for now. Gold hardware was standard on Customs, but they could be had with chrome hardware too. Normal colors for a 79 LPC were Alpine White, Ebony, Wine Red, Cherry Sunburst and Tobacco Sunburst, but I have seen them in a Metallic Silver/Black Sunburst, Natural Maple (with maple fretboard!) and Dark Walnut Brown. The reason I know all this is because I have one 79 and two 80s. These are often considered the least valuable Les Pauls because they aren't made like the new ones (which are made like the old ones), but these are my favorite LPs. The maple necks are stable and durable. The tops aren't curved nearly as much as the newer ones, so to me, they don't look like drunk violins. In fact, there's no recurve or inside curve to them at all. The top arcs from one side to the other.....fine with me. These are things that have kept their prices down compared to other LPs, but that's why I have three of them instead of one.

Any great e.guitars with budget $300 below?

Im a beginner looking for a good e.guitar that ranges below $300. Can anyone advice me on getting a good guitar? My friends said Epiphone LPs are good but i need critics on it n other brands as well. Help?

Re: Any great e.guitars with budget $300 below?

I would start out by checking out musiciansfriend.com They have some good specials and sometimes free shipping, too. Epiphone LP's are good but in your price range the pickups will suck really bad and once you start to understand tone and sound quality you'll probably spend at least another hundred bucks for pickup upgrade. The kind of music you like to listen to will also affect the type of guitar you want. If you're into heavy stuff you might also want to check out Jackson, BC Rich, and Schecter. I would also go to www.misicyo.com They have some really good deals in their Kramer line, I own one, spent $299 on it and it plays and sounds like $8-900 Jackson guitar. Gibson actually took over the Kramer line of guitars and they use pretty good hardware and materials. The tremolo has stood up to much more abuse than a cheep American made one and still shows no real signs of wear. Hope this helps. If you need some info on a particular guitar you're interested in let me know and I'll help you out.

Problem with MesaBoogie DC5

Last week, I bought an used DC-5-Amp. The amp sounds and looks fantastic, but there is one problem. The channelswitching by hand or food causes a loud and noisy pop or crack through the speaker, even volume is zero. Is this a general problem?
I was looking for schematics, but I wasn't successful. Can anybody help me?

I have a signed lucille from a fund raiser i don't remember the year or if it worth anything

Re: gibson "lucille"signed b.b.king

I had won a bid for a Gibson Lucille signed/played by B.B. King years ago. The guitar has never been used except for the brief play by B.B. King because I do not play guitar. I bid on it because I am a fan and nobody else was willing to bid on it at the Oxfam auction. I no longer have room for it. I can provide pictures and I am will to show anyone that is willing to visit Miami. Marco $5,000 or OBO

Re: Guitar Pro 4

hi, i wanna know if i can improve the sound on guitar pro 4, it kinda sounds crappy, i like it, but its souinds crapy... i wanna add effects. can i do taht ?

more Guitar Pro 4

GP4 claims to have a WAV exporting feature, but everytime i try to export a song to WAV format, the audio file comes completely empty.

I tried changing each and every of my midi setups, but none of them seemed to work ok to be rendered to WAV.

And i can't use wingroove, 'cuz my soundboard's midi quality is way better. The ideal for me is to export instrument by instrument to WAV with GP4, and yet, i can't do it.

What should i do?
