source for used guitars and parts

Hi. Does anyone know where one can buy used guitar parts, parts guitars and used guitars at a reasonable price whether singly or in lots? My hobby is repairing guitars and giving them away or selling them cheap so I don't want to pay a lot for the parts. I am in the Buffalo, NY area. Thanks.

pickup problem

Can someone tell me why my pickup in my CC 057 nylon string ovation is picking up sound from the first string (bottom) up to the fifth string, but the top string is very soft.
I made an attempt to remove the pickup. It seems that a sorta plastic strip with six individual smaller pickups(I presume) with a thin copper strip underneath is encased by a thicker copper casing, when I plug the guitar into my amp and tap the pickup throughout(the thick copper casing) I get a softer sound up at the bass string.
After re-stringing I can hardly hear the top string at all
Any help here will do
Thanx

strat...mexico vs. usa

i'm having problems with my standard mexican strat and i keep reading and hearing about how much more superior the american strats are. i would like to hear from people who have played both guitars frequently and maybe you could tell me from experience what the major differences are between the two.

pete, the mexican strats are good sounding and quality for the money. some cuts are taken to lessen costs.
on the american, the hardware is typically better and the wood used for the body is better grade. the frets on the mexican are smaller which effects playability
otherwise, the cost difference is hard to justify.

First, what "problems" are you having? Strats made in America have certain problems associated with them as well.
I agree with the previous post. I have a new Mexican Strat, having owned and American and Japan Reissue model, I'll say this: I upgraded the pickups only because of the hum that all Strats have, including American models. Other than that, maintenance and adjustments make your Mexican Strat a good quality instrument. Put some Chapstic under the string tree using a toothpick. Also buy some Lock Ease-it's an oil/graphite lube available at most hardware stores. Put a drop in each nut slot as needed. This will keep the strings sliding nicely when using the tremolo. I have zero complaints on this guitar having set it up properly. If you are hesitant to do adjustments of the truss rod, bridge, etc., it's well worth having a good technician do it for you-you'll be amazed at how nice your strat can play! I like mine better than the American I once owned.

Re: strat...mexico vs. usa

I have a '95 Fender Mexican Strat and to be honest it is the only guitar I've ever been really happy with...I put a stacked humbucker in the bridge and Sperzel tuners but everything else is stock.

Information on an old Ibanez

I have recently bought an old Ibanez. I was told that it was originally purchased in 1976. It looks like an Artist Ibanez because its a double cut-away with four buttons in the same configuration as Les Paul buttons. But unlike the Artist series mine has single coiled pickups instead of humbuckers. It looks just like the one Jimmy Page uses on the new LEDzEP dvd on the songs "White Summer" and "In my time of Dying". Please Please Please can someone tell me if its any good because I need to know if I made the right decision!!

Japenese Squire Tele

Hi. I'd really appreciate it if someone could give me some details about a second hand tele I just bought. Its a Japanese Squier, has a White Blonde finish, single ply black scratch plate (5 screws), maple neck, Gotohs. The ser. no. is K030545. My questions are: What year was it made? Why isn't it strung through the body? (and is it worth modifiying this aspect) Is it a Fifties re-issue of some kind? (certainly looks like one) What is the body material? I'd be grateful for any info. Cheers and happy playing.

Many re-issues do come out of Japan so I'd say that's
what it is. I don't know the serial numbers but I think
it's probably made from basswood although the Japs did
use ash after the mid 90's sometimes.

Re: Japenese Squire Tele

Ask at: TDPRI.com

but a squier is the bottom of the fender barrel

Re: Japenese Squire Tele

I thought so to untill I got this one (very cheap second hand). Its got a Duncan at the neck but is other wise stock and I use all pickup options. I'm telling you man; I crank it through a Blues Jnr and it just cuts. I'd recommend it - a good solid, 'all there' guitar.

I'd just like to add- I also own this rare design and it's a cracker! Bought it at 3 o'clock in the morning on the 13th floor of a council estate for £40. If you see one- give it a play!

Ibanez S series or RG?

Right now I'm looking for a nice shred guitar with a $400-$600 budget. My current guitar is an Epiphone Les Paul, which I still love, but I need something with a little more soloing freedom. I'm also looking for something with the H-S-H pickup setting and a nice tremolo system. Recently, I went to my local Guitar Center and played both the S470DX and the RG1570 Prestige and loved both. I liked having 24 frets on the RG, but also the sound and overall feel on the S. I'm still not sure what I'm interested in, but leaning towards the S. If there was only an S with 24 frets! Well I just wanted to ask for the opinion of fellow guitarists, please let me know what you think. Thanks!

Re: Ibanez S series or RG?

Go for the S man, what the hell do you need the 24th fret for anyway? if you need it, just bend a whole step up from the 22nd fret. Besides the S has much better quality. The ZR bridge is totally badass; a very valuable innovation that is taking trem bridges to another step.

Re: Ibanez S series or RG?

I havent tried that RG, but did play a S470DX today. I was looking to spend about £800, including part exing my Gordon Smith SG2. I thought the S looked much sexier than the whole pointed RG thing, and tested it against a £750 Jackson Soloist, and bought the S cos it outranked the Jackson. The S just begged to be played, and that new trem stays in tune better than anything I have ever played. In short, BUY IT NOW!
