Strings

I want to put nylon strings on steel string guitars, but I want to make sure that the guitar will work properly. Can you tell me what modifications, if any, I need to make on the various types of guitars: acoustic, acoustic-electric, solid body, etc? Will the string pick up OK? Thanks

is it necessary to alternate strokes with each note picked?

thats basically it....i am to the experienced side of beginner and i just confused myself by trying to figure out if its better to always pick up down up down regardless of which strings you are hitting....

Re: is it necessary to alternate strokes with each note picked?

No it's not. Your stroke depends on what you're trying to accomplish. It's a good skill to master in order to solo well and play with a faster attack.

Re: is it necessary to alternate strokes with each note picked? ....YES!!

Yes!! At this point in your gutitar playing learn how to do things correctly.Develop good habits NOW!!
Later on you'll come across things that can't be hammered or slurred.

Good Luck

Bass question

hi I'm currently a bass playing, and I'm wondering what is the difference between a touch and stick guitar, and how do you play them? Thanks

can't get rid of string buzz

I have a one year old Fender Strat that I was using Ernie Ball, Heavy Top Skinny Bottom strings on since I've had it. I just recently switched to some 9-42 light strings, and they buzz like a bee hive. I've adjusted action, I've adjusted the truss rod, and nothing will get rid of the buzzing. I play with a hard touch, but it seems ridiculous to not be able to get rid of the buzzing, even with the action all the way up and the truss got as loose as it goes. The buzzing even goes through to the amp, and power chords sound very muddy and unpronounced compared to before. Does anyone have any idea what's happening here? I would really appreciate any help anyone could offer.

Re: can't get rid of string buzz

Well, Eric. I think your main problem is that the strings are metal. you should really think about investing in some strings made out of twine, it really stops the buzz. You could also think about rubbing margrine on the neck and grease things up.. you will get a lot smoother sound.

What effects pedals does jack white use?

What effects pedals does jack white use? Please dont say he doesn't use any because he does! I know he gets the blusy tone from the sears amp and his unique guitar but he uses a distortion pedal as well as, i think, an effects unit to get that bluesy grainy sound. Any guesses? Could i get that effect through a zoom 606 effects pedal?

As far as i know he uses at least the following pedals. An electro-harmonix USA Big muff for distortion, a digitech whammy for octave shifts, and a boss cs3 as his sustainer. Im not too sure that the boss one is correct but im fairly positive the other 2 are. The big muff distortion pedal gives alot of feedback if you stop playing while its one, but i guess thats a rather obvious attribute of the white stripes sound.

Re: What effects pedals does jack white use?

jack uses a jeckyl/hide overdrive-distortion pedal, to get that crunchy gain distortion, and in teh elephant album, for the bass lines uses a digitech whammy effect, that detunes 1 octave the guitar, and for the solos just a metal slide.

rare washburn neck HM-5V

I GOT A WASHBURN HM-5V guitar from the mid to late 80's and the headstock broke where the low E key is. The neck is wider at the joint than necks are now.I believe it's 2.5" at joint. I was wonering if anybody has or has had a similar Washburn with a v-neck and if they had the same break point. I also would like to know where to get a replacement if any.

I have/had the HM-5V and am also looking for a replacement neck. I have a guy who will build one custom for me, but don't have the heel size. It was a great guitar and I would love to get it rebuilt.

Guitar humidifiers

I have seen humidifiers that hang inside an acoustic sound hole, but I also have a semi acoustic (ibanez) with f holes.

Any ideas about humidification (good word) of the guitar or the room?

Epiphone LP - Standard or Studio

I am looking to buy a new geet, quite an inexperienced player, but getting better!!! I think have been reading lots of reviews, forums etc and have had a quick play of an Epi LP Custom - Can anyone explain where the differences are between the 3 models, or is it just a quality difference. Also any opinions on the Goth LP Studio?
Cheers

Re: Epiphone LP - Standard or Studio

alright mate, here ya go. the Epi lp studio, i think, has a bolt on neck, and is in general a pretty low quality instrument. next step up, the standard. it's a good guitar, set neck, binding. i had one a few years back, and it treated me well. then you have the custom. asstetically, a beautiful guitar. but when it comes down to it, it's the same set up as a standard, set neck, same pu's. but, it is a great looking guitar that plays well. now personally, i'd steer clear of the goth lp. actually, my advice to you is, if you have the money, get a gibson lp studio, or if you really want an lp but don't have the money, save for one. i have a '96 gibson studio, and i wouldn't trade it for the world. great great great guitar. now, you said you don't have much experience, so you'd probably wanna look at a more inexpensive model(which kinda defeats the purpose of the gibson studio, but i figured that guitar gets knocked down enough, so i needed to stand up for it :)} might i suggest a mid 90's squier? now hear me out. the guitars squier makes now, i think, are piss-poor instruments. however, the ones they made in the mid 90's, though not of american quality, are still really good guitars. that's what my first guitar was, a '94 squier. still have it, and still use it. so those are my suggestions to you, mate. if you've anymore questions, please, feel free to email me, i love talkin' guitars! peace out.

Re: Epiphone LP - Standard or Studio

Hey that other guy was full of shit. I have a epiphone les paul and my uncle used to have a standard gibson. the studio les paul doesn't have a maple body cap and has a less richer tone than the standard. in my opinion my epiphone sounds great and i even prefer it over the gibsons. the only problem with them is fret buzz but with the right adjustments you could get rid of it although the pickups are so good they don't pickup the buzz. And If you decide to go with a squire get the new squire 51 it is a combination between a strat and a tele IT IS FRICKING AWSOME it is a well made gouitar and you get A LOT of bang for your buck. the only flaw in this guitar is some slight intonation problems in the upper frets but it is very little and can be corrected with the right adjustments to the saddle.

can't identify my Danelectro Sitar.

Does anyone have any info on the series of sitars Danelectro put out with the serial # 8010? Have been searching withour success since 1999. The web has yielded nothing!! It's not consistant with the usual line of Danelectro Sitars...HELP!!

how do emg-81 pickups sound in a guitar with a basswood body

Re: how do emg-81 pickups sound in a guitar with a basswood body

I have a ESP Ltd-f-200 with a basswood body, with two emg-81s, and it sounds sweet... utterly sweet hehehe :) very good harmonics, added a lot of sustain. Seems like it made it a bit more bassy with clearer treble, but not scratchy. Perfect for anything heavy. Also very nice cleans, as before lots more bass in the cleans. Hope that helps. Email me if you want more help.

Re: how do emg-81 pickups sound in a guitar with a basswood body

EMG 81 sound geart in that type of body ... I think Guitarist Eddie Sash uses them.

tailpiece replacement for Melody Maker

I have a '64 Gibson Melody Maker (double cutaway) and the original tailpiece is in bad shape. I'm looking for a tailpiece/bridge that will install on the original postbolts. I DON'T want to modify this ax anymore than necessary, but don't care for the string rattle etc with the original tailpiece. I've heard the Badass Bridge will do the trick. Is this certain and are there others that will attach using the original bolts? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,
I have an early 60's MM and had the Badass bridge installed. It fit perfectly. Hope this helps.
