tbone@dynamyte.com
Anyway, if your a bit handy you can make the spacers yourself. there is a drawing of the spacers on the gretschpages. Look for a discussion on x155 and 2k's I believe it was posted bij a guy named setzer. (not the real one off course.
Hope to have been of service.

Yamaha FG-300

Have one for sale, but the pick guard came loose and is now missing. Would love to find an original pick guard.

Re: Yamaha FG-300

I have one also. Bought it in Japan in 1970. My pick guard also came off and I can't find it! Do you have any idea how much the guitar is worth? Without the pick guard.

Thanks for your input.
Ron

: Have one for sale, but the pick guard came loose and is now missing. Would love to find an original pick guard.

i'm in the same boat-my pick guard came off and cracked-old and brittle, i guess.
if you come across an extra pick guard could you send it my way?
thanks very much,
ron
p.s.-2 guys named ron with same guitar and need same part-small world!

trying to learn Slash solos.....................

Iam currently trying to learn some slash stuff(GNR)
Iam working on the solo from Dont Cry and the solo from Garden of Edan.I have the tab,Only problem is,is that when he plays something incredibly fast or too fast to make out how hes playing it,i get stuck.So is there any methods you guys use when stuck like this?
I mean,there probably aint any slash cd-roms out there,and i really wanna learn those intense,fast,driven moments,like i said i have the tab,but i get lost when he bursts in to speed lol.Thanks

Re: trying to learn Slash solos.....................

just stay in the scale/mode you are and try to get the pattern, most 'bursts' are just patterns, also theres alot of software to slow music down w/o changing pitch which makes it easier to figure solos and changes... just do a google search and download one.

Re: help please

Did you put on the same gauge strings ? just adjust the springs till it's where you like it.

Amp over Guitar?

I'm buying my first guitar on a budget of about $600-$700. I don't want to buy a package deal because the amps that come in packages arn't usually that great. My plan is to buy a used entry level guitar such as a Squier and spend the majority of my cash on a nice amp(like a Marshall with some built in effects). I figure I can always save up for a Gibson after I can play on a level that exceeds my guitar, but the amp I can keep for a long time. Couple of questions though:
- Is my budget realistic?
- Is it smart to focus on the amp over the guitar?
- What are somethings I should avoid when buying?

I REALLY appreciate advice from someone who plays If it helps I like Pop Rock and some Punk stuff. Email me if you can so I don't have to search through the hundreds of messages here.

Three Days Grace

I wondered if anyone here knows what kind of effects I can add to my guitar so it'll sound more like Adam's guitar in (I Hate) Everything About You. I can't really figure it out myself.

Re: Guild Mark 1

: Can anyone give me idea of value for this guitar, serial CA-2737...model Mark1 Thanks, Don

bostonguitar.com is asking $799. That's a far cry more than the $150 I paid in 1962. It's still a great sounding guitar and I'm keeping it!

Volume Control Problem When I Use Pandora PX4

I'm getting a problem in controlling the volume everytime I switch to another effect. How do I even out the volume so that when I press either the Up or Down arrow to change effect, the volume stays relatively the same?

Randy Rhoads Video

I'm looking for just about any Randy Rhoads footage I can find that you can't currently buy in stores. Please email me if you have any, thanks!</p>

Re: Randy Rhoads Video

The only footage of Randy (other than occasional bootleg footage with Ozzy and Quiet Riot) is the 1981 TV show "After Hours." It's out there. Try Kazaa or Grokster to download the MPG files.

Should I buy amps through magazines?

Okay, so we all know that you shouldn't buy guitars through the net or magazines, but what about amps? Some magazines have some great deals on amps that you would be hard pressed to find at retailers. What about straps, cables ect.?
Email me on this if you can, thanks guys.
-Louie

Re: Should I buy amps through magazines?

Buying through mags is fine, the ony problem w/guitars is you should try it before buying, also there are considerable differences in quality between differnt guitars of the same model so you usually have to try/inspect a few to find the best one, but if the seller has a good return policy and the price is right there is no problem buying through the mail.

The only problem I ever had was with an amp and that was through music123, they sell dent and scratch, blems (2nds), and returns as 'NEW', and have little to no customer service nor desire to resolve problems... they just lie about taking care of it and then ignore you.

buying guitar in states

high everybody. I am Dutch and later this year I'll go to Tucson Arizona. I wonna buy a new guitar then, since the're cheaper than in Holland. I am thinking to buy either a gibson or a prs. Can you tell me the big differences (sound, playability)? And is it best to buy in Tucson or is it a lot cheaper to order it at e.g. samash?
Any advice is welcome!

Mann Acoustic guitars

Has anyone ever heard of Mann Acoustic guitars. I'm trying to find some information on them.

Re: Mann Acoustic guitars

: Has anyone ever heard of Mann Acoustic guitars. I'm trying to find some information on them.
No but I've seen some Mann electric guitars, they make a Les Paul knock-off that sell for about $110 US. I've heard rumours that Ibanez spawned from them.

Re: Mann Acoustic guitars

I just spotted one at a friend's place, he wanted to throw it in the garbage... but after playing this half broken guitar in an open tuning... sounded amazing, big sound, well defined bottum end... had an aged woody sound too, projects at a really nice volume. Seem that the snapped headstock was put back together rather amateur... the guitar seems to hold the new strings and the action was way up there, so I decided to play open D for the hell of it.
