I have a chrome-o-zone amp (laney) and I want to know if someone can help me with the fuses that the amp has. I switch off the HT fuse and the amp continues running and i don't know why. And if someone can help me telling me what is the way to leave the amp useless to avoid that someone could use it without my permission. Thanx for everything

A PICKUP WITH LOADS OF GAIN

Hi, i currently have a starfield electic guitar h/s/s, and at the moment have a seymour duncan "holdsworth" humbucker in it at the bridge. Now, it is a great pickup, but i want loads of gain, my amp (tech 21 trademark 60 combo) has not got loads of gain, so i want a hotter pick up !!!.
Any suggestions you lot ?. cheers

Pickups for high-gain

You have to go EMG active if you want to play the gain game. I have an 81 at the neck and an 85 at the bridge. Hammett and Wylde use 'em because they rock.

Fair warning: they're a pain to install, but worth the effort.

Re: Pickups for high-gain

Ya, Get a Dimarzio super
3 pickup. easy and lot of high very quit gain, I use them on all my ibanez blows away emg's somewhat. Or try the semore custom custom that also is a damm good pickup.

screw the EMG's

The EMG actives don't sound as good as people let on. The best thing you can do is get a Dimarzio X2N. It puts out 510 mV and is the hottest passive pickup on the market. The next best choice would be a Duncan Invader. I'm also pleasently pleased with Carvin's high output pickups. Check out the websites for each of these companies...www.seymourduncan.com...www.dimarzio.com...www.carvin.com. Compare the tone charts as well as output. Dimarzio also has a new one out, the Subsonic, that's supposed to be pretty good if you down tune, check it out on their website as well. Then go to Ebay, a good used pickup can save you some $$$

Re: A PICKUP WITH LOADS OF GAIN

Texas Special pickups are wound really hot but im not sure if its gonna give you the massive amount of gain your looking for.

thanks you lot for the replys.

Do I have to spend huge $$ on a tube amp head?

I don't understand it. In a day and age when I can get a bad-ass cab for around $250, I have to go out and spend $400 for a decent tube head. I want 100w - 130w that's reliable and LOUD! But I want it for around $250. Gimme help.

Re: Do I have to spend huge $$ on a tube amp head?

I'd be wary about a tube head for only $250. It's either a cheep one or the tubes are on their way out. If you do find one make sure you check out the tubes before you buy it.

kent guitar

i have one i wanted to now how old it is its a electric bass guitar 4 string

BEGINNER THAT NEEDS HELP FINDING A GOOD GUITAR!!!!

I am STILL looking for a good used guitar!!! What is a good brand and kind for a beginner? What is good in a guitar and what is Bad??? NEED HELP!!!

Re: BEGINNER THAT NEEDS HELP FINDING A GOOD GUITAR!!!!

It all depends on what you want to play. Classical, acoustic, electric...? Then it depends on what type of music you want to play on that instrument.

Re: BEGINNER THAT NEEDS HELP FINDING A GOOD GUITAR!!!!

Ok i want to play an acoustic guitar. And play rock or punk and eventauly play electric. Play music like dasboard confessional or stuff like that...

Re: BEGINNER THAT NEEDS HELP FINDING A GOOD GUITAR!!!!

At your level you should go to your local music store and just buy a cheep acoustic. Until you develop a sense of tone and get experienced you won't know the difference anyway. Make sure it feels comfortable. It you start some bad habits now they will be very hard to correct later. If you need to you should probably pick up a good guitar book (even if you just browse one for free in the book store) and try to at least learn what to look for. You want an adequately straight neck with minimal fret buzzing. I can't really think of much else that could help you in writing. Good luck.

Re: BEGINNER THAT NEEDS HELP FINDING A GOOD GUITAR!!!!

I've been playing for 20 years and started with a Yamaha acoustic. They make fairly good quality instruments at a reasonably low price. Have someone knowledgable sit down with you and go over basics such as restringing, setup and maintenence and you'll have years of service out of the instrument.

Re: BEGINNER THAT NEEDS HELP FINDING A GOOD GUITAR!!!!

pls define "good". in acoustics, it could be the latest Epiphone AJ1 dreadnaught for $99, that's a good price for a decent guitar. then maybe you'd consider a $15,000 Larivee a good guitar (I would!) I guess the real question is how rich is daddy?

Re: BEGINNER THAT NEEDS HELP FINDING A GOOD GUITAR!!!!

You're right, if daddy can afford it a good guitar can be much higher end. Good would obviously be a matter of taste and the depth of your wallet. I've found the best affordable tone to come in the new retail range around $400 to $600 retail. You get out of it what you put in to it. Which includes which cuts of wood are used in the construction, how they're handled, glues, etc. The Koreans just aren't going to use top quality materials and you get what you pay for.

Re: BEGINNER THAT NEEDS HELP FINDING A GOOD GUITAR!!!!

I would go with a Squier Fender Strat for electric or like a montana acoustic

how much is my guitar worth?

I have a Gibson C5 Guitar that my father purchased in 1948. It is in excellent condition. Does anyone have an idea what it might be worth. He paid $84.00 for it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx
Debbie

Re: how much is my guitar worth?

if it's in good shape, it may be worth 100-200 TIMES what he paid for it. call your local Gibson dealer and ask them. other than selling guitars, it seems that's all they're good for. next, call your insurance company and get an addendum put on your home-owners'... seal it, pack it and store it for as long as you can!!! what a GEM!!!!!!!!

Re: how much is my guitar worth?

How much is my guitar worth. It is an Epiphone 12 string...model number no-245 serial no. 471981 very good condition?????

epiphone les paul

i got an epiphone les paul with a crack in the neck about half way up is there any way of repairing this - it looks like the nech and body are one piece but surely this cant be? any advice would be gratefull received

Re: epiphone les paul

The neck is set into the body, why it appears to be one piece. Any decent shop should be able to fix it as LP cracked necks/heads are a common repair, if you want to do it yourself (not too hard) just do a search as there are lot's of websites with step by step repair instruction.

: i got an epiphone les paul with a crack in the neck about half way up is there any way of repairing this - it looks like the nech and body are one piece but surely this cant be? any advice would be gratefull received

Re: epiphone les paul

last statement first: the Les Paul has a "set" neck... it goes clear through the body, so yes, it IS possible. Firsts question: most depends on how bad the break is, and where it's broken. if it's a clean crack, well believe it or not, glue is stronger than wood. it could be mortised with dowells, (oak prefferably) and glued with clamps and it 'could' be stronger than before. the real problem is that there is a truss rod going the length of the neck which puts additional tension to keep it straight. it takes up a lot of room within the neck, limiting the areas where the dowells can fit. it requires removing the fretboard, the truss rod and finding someone with the nads to do it properly. then it could also reqire a refinish on the neck. long story short: it can be done, but is it worth it? check with a good luthirer in your area and see.
