Re: Humbuckers, HELP ME!

: People, I need to know the difference between a chrome cover humbucker and a open one, i want a pickup that gives good cruch and dont keep ringing when i palm mute, can any one help me?

The chrome covers are there just to make them look nice, they also block your signal.

I would go for S/Duncan "Pearly gates" or a "Jeff beck JB1". Ive used both of these and they both sound great.

ESP KH-2 Vs Jackson RR-1

Both are great guitars..but kh-2 is bolt-on.

Wich one should i buy?

Sorry for my shitty english

Re: ESP KH-2 Vs Jackson RR-1

RR-1 is american made and will play better than a lot of guitars that cost twice as much as it. And as usual ESP will be pretty crappy.

Beginner Guitarist--Pedal Question

I bought a pedal(metal zone) a while back, put i can't seem to get rid of this sort of buzzing sound when i turn on the pedal...
I'v tried adjusting everything my amp and the pedal, someone told me i need some other pedal, like a compression sustainer..But i don't know what thats for...Please Help

Re: Beginner Guitarist--Pedal Question

I'm not sure how to explain it.A compressor keeps the signal from either "peaking"(being too loud) or "diving"(being to low).It keeps everything even,tight.
METAL ZONE-the buzzing is an common problem with that pedal.The E.Q. section is too sensitive and needs to be re-tweaked if you change amps.I don't like them much,but that's just me.It has lots of gain,try keeping the dist.level down.
You might want to try something easier to dial.I have a Smash-Box that I love.It does ONE thing,distortion!Just keep it clean.
The RAT is great and I heard a lot of good stuff about the Digitech HOT ROD Dist.Music shops seem to like 'em...??
There are other decent ones.
Hope this helps

DUDE I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM

HI Here`s an idea don`t get mad at me Put the pedals aside and get all you can out of your amp and guitar first.I have playing a long time 20 years im old LOL I still don`t use a effect execpt reverb thats only at home live no way.People still laugh at first but not long .I learned this from a guitar teacher when I was 14 to 17 he was not a fan of effects until you master the guitar .He died in a motor cycle crash last year .He was the best guitar player I new personly and taught me this lesson.Please spend time playing clean or with the amps natual distition the results last a life time.

Beginner Guitarist - Pedal Question

Just try to turn the volume down on your amp, and put the distoration at middle level,while adjusting the EQ, most of the time its the EQ that gives all the trouble, if this donsn't work then it might be your amp....

And with metal zone you have to really have the patience for getttin the right sound for dist...
If your a beginner, metal zone was the wrong buy, a normal cheap dist pedal would have been better, but thats just my opinion...

Could be a bad earth on your guitar. If you have single coil p/ups could be them.

Re: Beginner Guitarist--Pedal Question

Throw the metal zone in the trash and go buy yourself a PRO CO RAT distortion pedal! Peace

Research paper on How to Make an Electric Guitar

I'm 13 years old and am having to do a research paper. I chose to write about how to build an electric guitar. As part of my paper I have to interview several people. Could someone please answer my questions? 1. How do you make and equip the electrical parts and wiring of an electric guitar? 2. How long will it take, how time consuming is it? 3. What are the parts I will need? Where would be the best place to buy parts? 4. How do you measure the frets? 5. Approxiamately, how much will it cost to buy all the parts needed? 6. How do the Pickups pickup the sound the vibrating strings make? 7. What kind of tools am I going to need? Where can I buy these?

Hi
1) I buy all electrical parts and wire them into the guitar.I will be making all my own pickups the winding machine is almost done.
2)It takes me 40 hours to build a eletric threw neck guitar.
3)fretwire,bridge,tailpiece,trusrod,electric parts,tuning keys
4)There a ton of math formulars for this i have templates that fit into a saw that cuts the slots in the correct location.I buy from stewart mcdonalds ,lmi,carvin,wd music ,allparts, About $250.00 can build someones first guitar.
5)They pickup string vibratio using magnets and a eletrical circut.
6)Mostly coming wood working tools a few special ones but not that many.You can buy them from stewart macdonalds
7) Be carefull fingers dont grow back .Study books other guitars find a maker in your area and ask thats what i did.Most of us makers are very giving I have shown two people how to build and one builds a great guitar.

Good Luck

Re: plans for building an electric guitar

hey tim. im sam. im 15 and im from england too! im making a guitar but i dont have the plans on my computer. i've taken the measurments off of another guitar but my design for my new one is a bit odd. it looks like the new g-extreme wher the bottom curves in. it looks a bit like:

(\ || /)
) (
( __ )
\/ \/

it is 450mm from top to bottom and about 350mm wide at the widest point. it would be about 250mm from the top of the curve at the bottom to the bottom of the neck. where do my bridge and my saddle need to go?

where did you get the plans from the guitar that you made?
