Priceless.....if original it would have been made in the very early sixties,,,..maybe 1961 to 1963....I suggest looking to a professional who specialises in vintage valuable guitars.....good luck....John.

Hi. GO to Martin's website and go to history. It will tell you what year it was made. In excellent condition it is worth $1200-$1500.00. In fair shape aroun $1000.00

Peavey 400 amp problem....

OK, this problem is pretty recent and I can't figure out what is could be...

Basically, whenever I even power the amp, it makes this incredibly loud buzzing noise until I turn it off. (REALLY loud)Sometimes the amp will work, but not for long. The speakers are fine, I checked them. I know it's the amp that's messed up, but I don't know what could be causing it.

Any help at all would be GREATLY appreciated.

The LTD 400 is too powerful for the case it is in. What you probably have is a capacitor that has vibrated so much it broke one of the leads off anf is arcing. I have had an LTD 400 since the mid 70's. When I got it I took the board out of it and siliconed all of the capacitors down. I have never had a problem with this amp and I believe this is why.

upright acoustic bass

I have an Epiphone upright acoustic bass guitar. I don't know if it is called a 3/4 size or what? It's pretty old. Any iinformation on this would be apreciated.

Re: upright acoustic bass

: I have an Epiphone upright acoustic bass guitar. I don't know if it is called a 3/4 size or what? It's pretty old. Any iinformation on this would be apreciated.

I own and play an early 1940s Epiphone upright. The size would be 3/4, they were built by Epiphone from about the late 30s to mid 50s then the company was purchased by Gibson which continued building uprights until the late 1950s. As far as laminate wood basses I believe they are the best around. If you have any other questions or want to sell your bass please contact me.

Marshall Amp

Hi, I use a Marshall MG80CD amp, its about 4 or 5 years old now. I've got a question for anyone that knows something about them, I don't know much about amps. The amp is rated at 80 watts, but on the back of it it actually says 100 watts RMS, and to me it looks like exactly the same amp as the MG100 head, am I right? Furthermore, the amp cant handle being turned up about halfway with distortion about 3/4's of the way, its like the speaker just craps itself, and it makes really horrible noises when you palm mute. Its fine when just playing but try to palm mute and it makes a really loud sorta 'woomph' noise. Now is this cos the speaker is 80 watt yet the amp is actually 100 watts so its driving it too hard? Any suggestions on speaker replacements?

Re: Marshall Amp

I'd got a similar problem with my Fender Roc Pro 700 but the speaker's repleacement did nothing... (i bought a 100 watt Eminence Legend) I suppose that your speaker is all right.. the problem is maybe in preamp (as in mine amp was but in my town nobody could repair it) or speaker transformer ... The best way is going to a qualified "electronician" who is a guitarist at once...

What to do about the popup ads

I stopped using popupstopper, and now whenever an ad pops up that wants info, just open the phonebook and enter someones info, if enough people create these false leads it will become too time consuming for the spammers and maybe they will be forced to quit. BTW I'am working on a popup stopper that will automatically enter and submit false info in the background using online databases.

getting metal tone/distortion from a fender amp

Alright, here's the deal. My musical influence are extremelly varied. I play many differnt styles, and the two current projects I have going are on opposite ends of the distortion spectrum. I needed a new amp, and was really having a tough time deciding what to get. In the end clean tones won out, and I choose a Fender Hot Rod Deville 4x10. It's a wonderful amp, but my other project is hardcore/metalcore project, and the fender distortion just doesn't cut it, or at least I havn't found a way to make it work yet. So I was hoping someone out there could give me a little direction as to a good distortion pedal that will cover that sound well... I have been looking into the metal zone pedal but i have gotten extremelly mixed reviews. I'll probably give it a shot myself but any other ideas are welcome, and anyone who has seen this situation, or was in this situation and found a viable method it'd be wonderful if you could share it... e-mail me, and thanks

Re: getting metal tone/distortion from a fender amp

Try a Behringer V-Amp Or a Danelectro Fab Tone.

Re: getting metal tone/distortion from a fender amp

go on musiciansfriend.com and listen to the sound samples for different pedals. I happen to like the ever hated DOD fx series pedals. I have a fx69 (grunge) and it gets the job done for metal, but the death metal pedal would probably be better for harder metal (My friend has that one). Thier both cheap as hell too, and heavy duty as any boss.

Peavey Classic 50 effects loop

Does anyone know if it's possible to add an effects loop to an older Peavey Classic 50? I noticed that it comes standard on the newer models but mine is about 8+ years old and doesn't have one. When I try to run a multi-fx pedal through the direct input (normal or bright) it creates a lot of hissing and occasional feedback when playing the lead channel. It's fine with normal analog pedals but with anything digital it gets ugly. Thanks.

Washburn WG587

Anyone got any infoor good tips about this guitar casue ive just ordered it of music123, $950 down to $200 not bad eh. Well can anyone help?

Re: Washburn WG587

Just hope there are no problems with it, music123 is a pretty shady outfit. Also they normally go for under $300.... retail price means nothing w/guitars (and most anything else too).

Re: Washburn WG587

Shady, they were brill, never delt with anyone better, and the guitar is amazing.

Re: Washburn WG587

Don't listen to that guy. I am a platinum customer of Music123 and I buy 2-3 units every month, mostly Ibanez and ESP. Can't be beat in price but the service and shipping are only so-so. As long as you buy New or New B-stock you are OK. The guitar is legitamately $249-299. Typically you shouldn't pay anymore than 60% of list. I too have looked at this guitar and decided it wasn't for me, plently of other inexpensive tremolo'd 7 strings out there. I am not a fan of tune-o-matic with this style guitar. No resale value in them if you decide you dont like it. Good luck! John.

Re: Washburn WG587

Music123 ripped me off bigtime so I never tried them again and you even admit their service ain't so good so why the fuck tell the other dude I don't know what the fuck I'am talking about. Everything I posted was true, so fuck you !! ASSHOLE !!!

The use of profanity and vugarities is a sign of ignorance. 123 has been good to me.
