Re: Martin guitar maintenance

: I have a Martin HJ28. The H is for the herring bone bracing and the J is for Jumbo. It's an awesome instrument. Does it require any sort of maintenance? I change strings monthly - but am unaware of any periodic TLC it might need. It has no problems that I am aware of. Any knowledgeable replies would be most appreciated!

occassionly clean the frets with some approved fret polish from a local music store. wipe off any sweat or tesidue with a fine furniture polish and have the truss bar tweeked from time to time to keep the operation of the rod smooth.

Do you know anything about my guitar?! Please help.

I have a 1982 Deluxe Bullet Fender. I can't find a bit of information on it anywhere, and would like to know more about it and how much it is worth. If you have any information on it, or need more from me, please contact me. Id really appreciate it.

LINE 6 Spider Amp Settings

Hey, I need some help. I got a Line 6 Spider 2x12 combo and the stock settings that come on the amp really bite. Does anyone have any suggestions that could really help me out? I need the settings for a nice, bright, smooth, clean, a sweet distortion, and a heavy distortion out of the Insane setting, if possible, cause the Insane setting sounds reallly noisy. Please Help!!! Thanks.

Re: LINE 6 Spider Amp Settings

Matt,
I have the 1 x 12 combo, but my remarks should apply to that too I think.
I like the Spider because live, I have the a channel as clean w some chorus, b is blues, c is hard rodk, and d is hardrock w solo boost, reverb and delay.

Just set all the knobs (except master volume) on a channel, then hold in the 'a' button on the amp for about 4 seconds, it will blink twice, and Shazaam, you've got new settings for channel 'a.' You can set all channels this way.

I found that I needed to boost the bass eq on all channels to get a sound I liked.

The bummer about the Spider is that you can't tell what the settings are on the amp jsut by looking at it - since all those parameters are pre-programmed. I hope this helps. Also, spend some time with the manual, if you don'[t have one, I[ll bet you can ge3t it off the Line 6 website.

regards.

: Miguel

Check to see if your truss rod is too tight. Fret the low E at the first fret and last fret at the same time. There should be a slight gap (.010 -.020) between the bottom of the srting and the top of the 8th fret. If not, loosen the truss rod nut 1/4 turn and check it again. Also, check that your bridge pickup isn't too close to the strings. The pickups should be adjusted so that they are about 1/16" below the strings when fretted on the last fret.

I hope this helps.

miguel, you either have a saddle piece still buzzing if this happens again. or you have changed string guage size and the neck is not under as much stress which would give you a flatter playability

Tune the high E and B strings normally. then get your hands on a set of 12 string guitar strings. Now take the higher octave strings fron g to e and tune them like you would on a 12 string and Voiala. Nashville tuning!

adapter for porta studio

I have a "Tascam" porta studio. When I moved, the power adapter got misplaced somewhere. The back of the machine says that you have to use tascam only. Is this true? or can I just get a 12v adapter elsewhere? I'm really wanting to hook it back up to do some recording. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Laurie

Re: adapter for porta studio

yes, it has to be tascam, im stumbled upon this site thingy here trying to find a 12v tascam adapter, i founf a tascam adapter for a tascam cd player, which should plug into the recorder, but i dunno if its 12v

vintage squire???

I have a squire strat sunburst which i bought back in about1979/80. All the components are real fenderU.S.A. This came a standard when i got it.. can anyone tell me if this is now classed as a vintage guitar. Its a great player and i am still gigging it to this day. the quality seems a lot better than some of the other strats -(mexican etc). any info would be appreciated. Cheers

Re: vintage squire???

Vintage??? Well...50/50.I've owned several of them and thet are good axes.The necks are shaped better than most of the 70's Strats.These were made in Japan around 1980.
The Squires main drawbacks were;1)they still used 3 bolt necks(some 4),(2)they're only made with alder wood,cheap cuts and(3)I hated the tone of those pickups.
But they actually were decent guitars.I don't think they're worth more than $350-$450.I still have mine!
Hope this helps
