Adjusting my guitar neck

I'd like to learn how to adjust the neck of my guitar myself. Would you have any tips. Symptoms: B string is staring to buzz, and is in tune open, but is out of tune when for example playing D.

Re: Adjusting my guitar neck

There can be alot of things wrong with your neck such as a need for fret work, nut work (or replacement) or a bridge (intonation and/or height) adjustment. Assuming these are OK, there should be a slight dip, about .008", at the 7-9th fret area to allow clearance for the strings to vibrate. In other words there should be more space between the strings and the frets in this area than at the first few frets. This is called "Neck Relief". This is about all I can tell you without more info. By the way, I'm a custom guitar builder in PA.

Es 135 p100

Has anyone changed out the p100's on the es135 to p90's or humbuckers? Looking for some information on the quality of sound and the installation process

Marshall amps

I have two Marshall JTM30 amps (one with a single 12" Celestion Heritage speaker, the other with two 10" speakers -- same brand), both of which need repair. There are differing opinions as to which tubes offer the best sound. I'm looking for a nice, smooth, 60s'-style distortion and sustain. However, I'd also like to use them in clean mode once in a while. Any and all suggestions welcome.

Which amp for an acoustic?

I have been playing for about a year, and I am ready to buy an amp for my Washburn acoustic electric. Which will sound better, a solid state amp designed specifically for an acoustic, or a tube amp not necessarily designed for an acoustic?

Re: Which amp for an acoustic?

: I have been playing for about a year, and I am ready to buy an amp for my Washburn acoustic electric. Which will sound better, a solid state amp designed specifically for an acoustic, or a tube amp not necessarily designed for an acoustic?

Definately an acoustic amp,I use an Ibanez Troubador 225 and it's great,I've opened shows for Project Lo, Gongzilla and more and it's great for small settings also (hey check out LoLo records)but in reverse of a good elec. gtr. amp you can't play a elec gtr. through it only acoustic w/ its pickups...

what settings should i use??

// I have been playing guitar for about a year and I have Yamaha APX-5A acoustic and an Ibanez Troubador 25W amp, What should i put the settings on for rock n' roll songs, and solos??

It all depends on what you want, and what you want to do.
I don't claim to be an expert in this field as I can only go on my own experience

I had a Mesa Boogie DC5 all valve amp and my Yamaha CPX-5 electro acoustic sounded wonderful through it, no problems at all. Plus it gave me the most awesome rock sound. So if your going to play electric and acoustic stuff at a gig this is a great compromise. As you will only need one amp, and in my experience you will get tired of humping around two amps.

If your only playing acoustic stuff then go for a dedicated acoustic amp, as these will have more features suitable to acoustic guitars.

Hope this helps

Replacing the nut

Hey,
i recently replaced the nut on my guitar and am now having string problems. The bottom two strings now are making this vibrating sound. If anyone has done this form of repair and can tell me where i have gone wrong that would be great

Re: Replacing the nut

It sounds like you either cut the slots too deep or too wide. The 3 bass strings should be higher off the fretboard than the 3 treble strings. I'm a custom guitar builder in PA and I usually setup my guitars at about .016" (1/64) of an inch higher than the first fret and make small adjustments from there. The slots should have a round bottom and be no more than .003" wider than the string. The slot should also be angled back from the front of the nut towards the tuners so that they only contact the nut at the front edge. Polish the slots or you might have problems staying in tune. Good luck!

gibson volume controls

just bought a gibson howard roberts. with switch in the middle position, either volume control will turn the volume completely off. Guitar center says this is normal. My gibson knock off epiphone lets you turn the neck or the bridge completly off. How do these volume knobs normally behave?

Re: gibson volume controls

guitarelectronics.com have two gibson circuits which give you the chosen effect simply by moving two wires on each volume control ie. either volume act as master with switch in centre or each volume works independently with switch in centre.
