distortion pedal from master of puppets

ive been wanting to buy a distortion pedal similar to that of used in the song master of puppets by metallica, does anyone know the name of it? i have a fender by the way, so would i be able to sound somewhat close to them in that song, (by distortion and sound)

Re: distortion pedal from master of puppets

well i have found that the digitech rp series guitar modeling pedals work well. You can create your own sound. so if you listen to it while makeing a sound you will probably hit the right sound. I'm not sure they even use pedals it might be in theamps though.

restringing a PRS

I have a PRS CE 22 with a trem, and i everytime i restring it the brige comes up about a quarter of an inch off the body, even when i stretch the strings. Anyone know how i could stop this?

STRING

I have a Fender and I have had this problem too. It usually happens when you go to a higher gauge. Mine gradually went down but is still not all the way down. On the back of Fenders there are springs that work the tremelo I dont know if PRS have this. You have to take the strings off and adjust the springs. BUt dont take my word for it visit a site on doing this.

Gibson Flat Top L-O model - possibly

I have a Gibson that was purchased in used 1947. It still has the original case. It has the number stamped inside the sound hole up towards the neck of #298. I have contacted Gibson, but they were unable to pinpoint the date of this instrument. The info they sent me does not match this guitar. Maybe it isn't an L-O model. Does anyone have any suggestions in acquiring its ID and value? Thank you.

Re: Gibson Flat Top L-O model - possibly

my suggestion is to go to gbase.com and search for gibson L-O's... then look at your guitar and compare. pre-war gibson L's are selling for 1.5k and up. if this isnt enough for you or if you can't figure out what the heck it is you can always hire a pro for $25-35... just bust out the digital camera and surf to these urls:

http://www.mandoweb.com/
http://www.gruhn.com/

gruhn and mandolin bros have been around for awhile and are widely recognized... if you want to spend the money these are the places to do it.

newbie guitar wiring?

Hi people. I am not a quitarist so I am new to this site,but I am hoping to learn how to play, hence my question.
Recently I have aquired a strat copy, (esquire!!!???)with all the wires inside the jack socket torn from the socket itself. There are three wires and three contacts on the socket. Simple maths!!?? but I dont want to fuck it or blow myself up!!!! Could anyone tell me or point me to a diagram that would help me out as to which wire goes where?
cheers :o)

Re: newbie guitar wiring?

Go to Seymourduncan.com Click on "support" and go to the appropriate wiring diagram. The colors of your wires may differ but it's easy to figure out.

Any idea of the serial #? If so, email me and should be able to tell you what year. That makes a HUGH difference in the price.

Bass Sound for Hme Rec'dng Withour Using Bass Amp

Hi,
I have recently got back to playing guitar, particularly home recording. I have a bass guitar but my bass amp was given to Goodwil. Is there a gadget (affordable) out there that I could plug in between my bass and my multitrack recorder to get authentic bass sounds? I'm a guitar player. Buying another bass amp would be tough on the budget right now.
