IBANEZ Guitar

Whilst cleaning out the loft i came across an Ibanez guitar Model: D805130 its black and cream and has brass dials (not sure of the correct terminology, am not a player). was wondering if this was a good guitar and if anyone knows roughly how much the guitar is worth. Its in mint condition , with case, and tuner.

Why not post it on E-bay and find out what kind of bids you get. If found while cleaning out the attic, I assume it belonged to someone having access to the place, a relative perhaps? Maybe you could ask for a reward, and perhaps score enough to take a trip to the 7-11 for a slurpy.

Re: IBANEZ Guitar

Axctually, that number you stated is not the model number, but rather the serial numnber.
It denotes that the guitar was built in April, 1980.
As for what model it is, id need to see a pic or have a detailed description.
Let me know.. I can help.

A new guitar.

Hello! Recently, I've been wanting to take up learning the guitar. Frankly, I do not where to start especailly when it comes to selecting a good guitar for myself, whom is a beginner. I was wondering if there was any suggestions anyone can give me. Any help would be great! I don't know if this is true or not but I heard there is like a "dual" guitar that is acoustic/electric? Please help. I am so clueless :)

Re: A new guitar.

Congratulations! I see this message is from a long time ago, but I thought you deserved an answer anyway! Probably the MAIN advice I would give somebody is don't try to go too cheap, There are some great inexpensive guitars out there, especially used ones, but many cheap ones are so hard to play, you'll just get discouraged. Nylon stringed guitars (Classical style) tend to be easier to play for a beginner, but steel stringed acoustics are more popular, Many acoustics can be bought with electric pickups or have pickups installed, but since you're a beginner I would recommend you focus on finding a guitar in your price range that feels comfortable to you. Stick to the basics and get the best you can afford. Strings should be relatively easy to push down to the fretboard, even if you don't have calluses yet, the neck should be straight. The strings shouldn't buzz when you strum. There should be no exaggerated bulges in the top or back, though in a used guitar, you might see some of this and it's not necessarily bad,

A teacher or a reputable dealer will be of most help to you. They will ask you what kind of guitar music you want to play, what kind of music you like, and will let you try out some different models so that you don't end up with an instrument that is too big for your body, or won't work with the kind of music you want to learn Don't worry, you can buy a fancier guitar later. That's part of the FUN!

Good luck!

Epiphone Del-Rey Quirks

I have an Epiphone Del-Rey, which has a bolt-on neck. Unfortunately, this one has a pretty wide gap on the bottom side of the neck where it fits into the guitar's body. We all pretty much know that something like this can drastically effect tuning stability and sustain characteristics. Can anything be gained by gluing a bolt-on neck, or is this not advisable?

I am just learning guitar and not sure how to use a capo. I was also wondering what the pros and cons were to useing one. Maybe it is not a good idea to use one?
Thanks

Just a beginner and interested in capo? What a capo does is change the key ie from D to A etc. There are many types to choose from ranging in price as well. My first was a simple pad with an elastic band that wrapped around the backside of the neck and and secured on a tab with an eyelet over the tab. The elastic tends to stretch out, resulting in a loss of tension on the strings between frets and "buzz". Next I tried a clip on that has notches in which a little bar attaches and then squeezes down like a binder clip. Upscale are spring loaded, like Keysler makes, and the thumb roller, which you roll with your thumb. There are also capos made that are partials,ie they only press down on three of the strings. I like the spring loaded as I can dangle it on my strap when not in use. Experiment with your ears, you may find you like what you hear at the first fret from some chord progressions, while other chords shape up for you at 3rd. Play a string of chords with the capo at 3rd fret and then play the same chords with the capo at the 5th. Hear the difference? Now try and match what your hearing to your voice, either in pitch or harmony. Experiment, Good luck!

Chavel / Jackson mystery / question

Hi,

I have a Chavel Jackson guitar. H-S-S setup, on the last fret of the guitar neck is a serial number
C-900-964, does anyone know when this guitar was made and where? It is a neck through model. Looks black, but is actually upon closer inspection, Dark Blue with metalic specks. Active pickups, Shark inlay pattern on neck, headstock says Charvel, pickups say Jackson. Any info would be great. You can post here or reach me at jimi555@netzero.net Thanks in advance for anything you can offer to solve the mystery.

Re: Chavel / Jackson mystery / question

I don't know any specific info, but I know that the thruohg neck model was the "Model 5".
