guild guitar J4F-NT

I have been looking at a guild J4f-nt does any one know what the designation stands for and or its proximate value its in good shape with no case ..its a jumbo and I BELIEVE THE NECK IS ABOUT 1 3/4 AT THE NUT.....THANKS MIKEY

Re: guild guitar J4F-NT

Hey Mikey, I own one, bought it used, had to be repaired, because neck-angle wasn´t right...It´s a jumbo with natural satin finish (nt), Guild sold this line of instruments (4) as less expensive but "american-made quality"-guitars, must have been worth new about 700 $. Has laminated mahogany back but solid top and probably sides, Sound is nice, bit too boomy for me, so I use thinner strings .

JCM 800 combo feedback.

I have a JCM 800 4104 2X12 50 watt combo amp. I keep the preamp volume at "10" and when I turn the master volume to about "6" or "7" the amp has a very low deep loud fedback. I have replaced the tubes and tried that and it did nothing but what I did notice is when I remove the back of the combo it sometimes doesnt do it or it does it to a much smaller degree. I was just wondering if anyone can help me with this. If so PLEASE email me at mfkd999@mail.com thanks

Does it matter what footswitch i use for the marshall amp?

I owna MG30DFX (30 watts from marshall) and it didnt come with a Footswitch. Can i just buy a footswitch thats a marshall and would it work on my Mg 30 dfx? does it have to be a certain kind of footswitch?

Re: Does it matter what footswitch i use for the marshall amp?

it doesn't have to be a marshalll, or any certain kind. Although for a MG30DFX, you should probably buy a 2 button switch. One button to control channel switching, and one button for the digital effects. I bought a Traynor for mine. It's simple, and it takes alot of damage.

Against RIAA

These people need to learn the public doesn't buy into their "losing money and/or loss of creative control" line.

Re: Against RIAA

Allowing people to download mp3's gives us all a chance to sample music, much like the radio. I have attended more live events and purchased more cd's since mp3's became available to us all on the internet.

Re: clean sound

Sorry I've never seen/played one of those amps, try just starting with all amp settings at 0 (except a little main vol) and then slowly adjust the other parameters and try to get a good clean sound.... does the bass have active pickups ? if it does there might not be too much you can do but change them.

GUITAR BLUE BOOK

WHERE CAN I FIND A BOOK OR BOOKS THAT LISTS MODELS,MANUFACTURERS,&VALUES OF GUITARS

Re: GUITAR BLUE BOOK

bluebookinc.com

Most the large book stores (Barnes & nobel, etc) stock em, they run about $20, if you don't want to spend the money try some good guitar boards (like TDPRI.COM) where people that have them will tell you the prices.

Re: martin guitar serial number

re: how do you tell when a martin guitar was made? the serial number is 396247. it is a D-28. thank you for your help

Your guitar was made in 1977. There are various web sites that have Martin serial #'s by year. You can go to the CF Martin website, for example: http://www.martinguitar.com/history/dating.html.

price quote

I found this nice Mann guitar in a pawn shop. It sounds pretty and looks like a les paul. The guy that sold it to me said it was made in Japan and it is about 20 years old. I have never heard of this company or model and I was wondering what it is worth. Thanks.-M

New Guitar Player

I'm just starting out to play the guitar. I heard that for someone new, a certain type of strings were better. If this is true, what should I get? How do I know if a guitar is right for me?

strings

You should probably start off with a smaller gauge of strings and then if you want to you can gradually get bigger strings to get a fatter sound.
