Yeah i own one i think they're meant to be copies of 'the dot'

Re: Park Grimshaw Guitar

I also owned a Grimshaw in the 60s,a red GS30 les paul type. I met Mr Grimshaw who set it up while I waited. Park I was told was a distributor,who added their logo if they supplied it. Mine only had Grimshaw on the headstock. I was impressed with the one I had and wished I had never sold it.

I owned a Grimshaw (Park) Les Paul Copy bought it in 1979 it was a tobacco Sunburst solid body rosewood neck with twin humbuckers. I wish I hadn't sold it.

Yes, I met Mr Grimshaw back in the 1960s and currently own a Grimshaw archtop.

Oops...i've broken it.

First off, i'll admit to being a dipstick.I recently bought a Stagg for a present for someone.For a month all was well then i noticed that the output socket was loose and causing a bit of noise.I nipped up the retaining nut and as i was doing so, noticed that the socket was turning as well - result the wires on the rear came away from the lugs. I didn't know if the wires were fitted to a particular lug or if they coud be fitted any way round so i took it back to the shop for repair.The thing is i now notice a buzzing coming from the amp when the volume is turned up over half way. I don't recall this buzzing being present before my mishap.If the wires were fitted to the output socket the wrong way around would this cause the buzzing ? Can somone with a Stagg tell me which wire should go where ? Thanks.

Re: Oops...i've broken it.

Forgot to say that the buzzing stops when any string or metal part is touched with a finger.

Re: Oops...i've broken it.

>Forgot to say that the buzzing stops when any string >or metal part is touched with a finger.

That means the wires on the output jack are the wrong way round, so the gtr is not grounded.

guitar strap

how do i put a guitar strap onto a guitar with one pin on it? the strap also came with like a shoestring thing in one end through the hole...

Re: guitar strap

: I have the same exact question. I have a Washburn D10S acoustic guitar and recently bought a guitar strap for it. One end obviously fits on the pin at the bottom, but the other end has a hile with a leather string. So, how does this attach?

Wilson Guitars

Hi I am looking for in formation on a guitar manufacturer called wilson, I think the company was bought up by Aria in the mid 60's.
I own a Wilson guitar and would like to know more about it

: Hi I am looking for in formation on a guitar manufacturer called wilson, I think the company was bought up by Aria in the mid 60's.

Robert, I bought 2 Wilson guitars in the late 60's / early 70's--one steel, one classical. I was told by the proprietor of the music shop that it was the same Wilson Co. that makes tennis balls and hot dogs. Decent instruments at affordable prices. I still have the steel string, and I'm looking for a nylon like the one I had--I believe a model J-12 or J-2. Just out of curiosity, does your Wilson have a similar model # on the interior label?

Re: Wilson Guitars

I have recently been given a Wilson nylon strung bass guitar, if anyone finds any info on Wilson Guitars on the net or otherwise please let me know...geraintja@hotmail.com

Re: Wilson Guitars

I too have a Wilson steel string guitar and have been trying to find out more about it. It is hand made with some nice pearl inlay and is made in Japan. Quality appears good. Any info would be appreciated. Also would like to sell.

RE: Wilson Bros. guitatrs

I am looking for information about Wilson Bros guitars, a subsid currently of Aria Guitars, which The Ventures use currently.

Re: Wilson Guitars

Well, maybe this is not the same manufacturer, but I know that Watkins Musical Instruments (of copy cat fame) had another company called Watkins (they were brothers) who9 made their guitars. When Watkins the guitar maker stopped being part of the business the name changed to Wilson.
That's the story I heard...

re-fretting

Hello, everynbody. I own an '89 American Fender Stratocaster and I'm thinking about re-fretting it -it needs it badly. What are the pro's and con's; will it be very expensive? closest city where I can have it done is Austin, Tx. I live about 6 hrs. south of Austin. Any info will help. Thank you! -Mario

Re: re-fretting

Not much to the pros/cons, if it needs a fret job it needs it and it isn't too expensive. There'll be alot of places in Austin so call around or ask at the TDPRI.COM, someone there from the area will point you to a good shop.

Fender Jazzmaster

I am building a fender jazzmaster and need help, I am using a fixed strat-type bridge and need help on where to place it on the body. If anyone can help please e-mail me. Any other advice or dimensions would also be appreciated.

Re: Fender Jazzmaster

If you are using a jazzmaster neck on your guitar, the scale length is 25.5 inches. Therefore you want to place the bridge so that the saddles are 25.5 inches from the nut of the neck.

Axis Guitar Pickups

My dad said his friend could get me a set of Axis humbucker pickups, are they any good? i know they are the ones that EVH uses... thanks

Re: Axis Guitar Pickups

If they are actual Ernie Ball pickups, they are a special made pickup by Dimarzio that no other guitar coms with. They have a very unique magnet in them made of a very rare magnetic property called "Neo Demium", which is used in the first Electrovoice microphone to totally blow away the Sure SM-57 a few years ago. These pickups sound like no others, and I have had them all. Ed Roman sells a set manufactured by the Duncan Custom Shop for another Patent holder now, and they are called "Black Back-ND" pickups....ND meaning "Non Disclosure"....exact design Eddie Van Halen made at Dimarzio for the AXIS (then the EVH Signature) Guitar. If you buy them from Duncan directly, they will cost you $320 a pair, where you can get them from Ed Roman for about $200 a pair..pretty good, huh?

Dating & Value of an Epiphone Bass

To make a long story short: I had a friend come by with a bass he wanted to get rid of. Seeing as how I've never played an insturment, I turned here for advice.

The Bass:
Epiphone-El Capitan, Electric/Acoustic
Cherry Sunburst w/a cream colored banding?.
Standard body (not cut away)
I think it may be a maple body with a rosewood fret board.
Not sure of the year...
Made in Korea, Serial # 146646
(Very Close to perfect Condition)
Epiphone hard case.

The Bass is stamped "used" on the back of the head.(indented into the wood) Inside the hole it has the Epiphone/El Capitan Sticker and it is also stamped, "used - no warranty". (in ink)

It plays and sounds great. I had a friend who plays guitar look at it and he said it was absolutely beautiful, but he really knew nothing in terms of value.

I looked at new El Capitan elec/acou basses online and they list for $999.00 and sell for around $600.00.

So my questions are:
1. What is this bass actually worth?
2. What does all of the used stamping really mean? Does this detract from the value of the bass?
3. How can I tell how old this bass is?

Sorry to ramble...Thanks for any input you may have...

beginner

hi, I'm a beginner guitarist and i bought my first electric guitar a couple days ago. the music i am into is metal, rock, and old punk. i was wondering if there are any easy songs to begin with even if they arent rock or punk. thanks.......kendra

Re: beginner

Iron Man (Black Sabbath), Dammit by Blink 182,
The best thing to do though is practice chords and scales to help stretch and train your fingers.

Re: beginner

I would recomend metallica's "ONE" it is a very easy song to play, also i learned Sweet Home Alabama for my first song.
