Re: josh hommes QOTSA guitar model

it's an ovation they don't make it any more
you can get an aria copy it's the pe series pro2

Re: josh hommes QOTSA guitar model

He uses an ovation gt they are extremly rare he also use ampeg amplification which is also rare fro lead guitar.

Re: josh hommes QOTSA guitar model

Right lets put you all straight...
Josh plays an Ovation Ultra GP, made in 1984, there are only about 200-250 in existence, and I am the prowd owner of one of them! Anyway, he has about 5, including a very beat up black one with a badass tune-o-matic bridge, this is one of the poorer versions however with cheaper hard ware. He has two others that I have seen him use, both modded to be string through, a Wine Red one and a Sunburst model.
He also plays as mentioned, a Maton MS500 and similar models, he has many of these, I have seen at least 4 different ones.
Other guitars he uses live are a Black Epiphone Dot and green Burns Double Six.
As for amps he uses an Ampeg VT-40 with a V-4 head and 2x12 cab and sometimes some VT-22s.
However, as the Ampeg amps are completely clean does anyone know how he gets his overdriven sound? Does he use a power break or preamp?
I use a tube works preamp, an Ampeg VT-22 and Ovation GP and achieve a pretty similar sound.

Interest in a new guitar

I have been playing music for 6 years, but the electric guitar for only 2. My current guitar is a Strat copy, a Galveston. I am looking for a guitar that is a little better. I now have narrowed it down to 2: A blue Fender Squire, And a green Mexican made Fender Strat with a humbucker pickup. Can anyone help me in my decision? The Squire in $150 and the Strat in $399, or $349 without the humbucker.

Re: Interest in a new guitar

Do yourself a favor and get the standard fender strat for 350

Special Guitar Tuning for Handicap

I have a friend that has lost three fingers on his left hand. He use to enjoy playing the guitar but is unable now. I've been told that there is a way to tune the guitar so he could use one finger (I'm assuming accross all the strings) to change notes. Is this true? If so, can someone tell me how? I've never touched a guitar so please explain in simple terms. Much Thanks, This will lift his spirits.

Re: Special Guitar Tuning for Handicap

most open tunings make for "single finger" barre chords, start out with open G, D tunings, the most common... get him a slide :). I saw a bluegrass banjo player with missing fingers, he just played with his 'nubs' over the top of the neck and was awesome so tell him not to give up, and with 2 fingers left (to hold a pick or finger pick) he could always change to lefty (if he is righty) and fret regularlly with his right hand.

Re: Special Guitar Tuning for Handicap

i completely agree with the first post... normally when you strum a guitar 'open', or without the left hand fretting any notes, the strings do not make a chord... its a dissonant mess. by retuning the strings to make an 'open' chord you have 'open tunings'.

here is a link with some specifics:
http://guitar.about.com/cs/alternatetunings/

slide guitar would probably be the way to go. with or without the altered tunings.

as for other role models... django reinhardt was one of the most brilliant players to ever breath and he lost the use of two left hand fingers in a fire. i think tony iommi of black sabbath also lost a couple digits... but three... geez... thats hard. maybe switching to lefty would be the best way to go...

1979

Re: Les Paul Custom

Hi Steve, according to the serial # it should be a 1970 model, i have a les paul custom with the serial #80560084 and its a 1980 model, the first 2 numbers is the year. I am a host on www.guitartricks.com, i have over 220 riffs you can listen to and they are tabed and its free if you want to check it out, thanks.

Re: Les Paul Custom

Hey Steve, it may be a 1979 model, it might be the 1st and the 5th number that is the year, mine would still be a 1980 model, does yours have the upper or lower ling between the O and the N? On the Gibson Logo? : Howdy Folks,Could someone tell me the year this guitar wae made?Les Paul CUSTOM ser.no.70869569 gold hardware block inlay at frets 1,3,5,7,9,12,15,17,19,21,multi-layer black/white binding truss rod cover with Les Paul in script and CUSTOM in capital block style letters, burgandy in colour,ebony fingerboard.thanks Steve

Re: Les Paul Custom

On the Les Pauls of the 70's The 1st and 5th number represent the year, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th are the number of the day of that year and finally the last three tell what factory location it was made. Be it Kalamazoo or Nashville. I believe the 570's area means it was made in Nashville, I have one and the #572 and it was made in Nashville. The gibson website explains how to identify your guitar based on the serial #. Hope I helped.

Hi Steve,

That guitar was made at the Nashville plant on March 26, 1979 and was the 69th instrument off the line that day. See http://www.gibson.com/downloads/bluebook/GibsonSERIALNUMBERS.pdf

Advice on Gibson Electric Guitars

I'm seeking advice about purchasing a guitar for my 16 year old nephew.My nephew is an advanced guitar player.He currently play a B.C Rich Warlock(Bronze)series.He's been thinking of getting another guitar.He wants to get a Gibson and is firm on it.Since ,his birthday is coming up I decided that as a birthday present I was going to get him a Gibson. I'm looking for a Gibson that is reasonably priced.I'm willing to pay between $500-$800 dollars.I'm looking for one that has a super fat tone,that is aggressive for maximum metal playing and has great humbucker pickups.
I would really appreciate your advice and whatever information you could provide me with.

Thank You Very Much.
Sincerely,Kamila

Re: Advice on Gibson Electric Guitars

Go with a Gothic Les Paul. You might have to go Epiphone though. The Gibsons might be out of your price range. But check them out. I think they will work best for what you're wanting to do.
