which strings are which?

I want to restring my 12-string. I have a bunch of strings hanging around and don't know which are which? Anyone help me?

Re: which strings are which?

: I want to restring my 12-string. I have a bunch of strings hanging around and don't know which are which? Anyone help me?

Its really simple... you string the guitar normally using the thickest strings starting with the top most space and skipping one every time (thickest at the top right!!) then you go along with the thinnest strings (again going in thickness order... starting with the thickest) and fill in the gaps. So when its done it will look like this(looking at the guitar from the front):

thick string E ------------------------- Deepest
thin string e -------------------------
thick string A -------------------------
thin string a -------------------------
thick string D -------------------------
thin string d -------------------------
thick string G -------------------------
thin string g -------------------------
thick string B -------------------------
thin string b -------------------------
thick string E -------------------------
thin string e ------------------------- Highest

i'm not totally sure about the exact tuning... but i do know that the highest two pitched sets of strins ie this lowest four string on the guitar are tuned to the sme note. All of the others are one or two octves apart... i forget!

Hi: I Have a Steel Bar for Sliding on My Acoustic Steel string Tuned to 440 standard Spanish Style.
As You Get Comfortable With Any Type of Slide You Can Play With The = Two Middle String's At the Same Time = D and G. Play them Open and then Place Your Slide Onto the Fretboard On the Same two String's: Now Place The Slide Onto The Second Fret's, Of Those Open String'sand Pluck the String's and Slide the Slide Up To the 12'th Fret's and Pluck Your Middle String's As The First Slide And The Second Position And Then The Third , Then Slide Up To The 15'th Fret And This Is the Octave And G Major Note's As The Lower Register Was The Original Form For Open Stru\ing Slide up And Slide Up Again And Again.
This Is Easyer Then It Sound's And Then You Can , Explore Slow and Medium Tempo's And Phasing A Structured But Spontainiouse Expression Of You Own.
Have A Glass Slide or Steel or Brass?.
There are Six Open String Tuning's For Dorbro Slide Delta and 12 Bar Blues = Tune to A Open E Maj.

Hooking up 2 amps

Hello

I have a Line6 Flextone 2 that has a 1/4" jack for an external speaker. I wanted to send the Line 6 signal to a Peavey Renown 400.

Where in the peavey can I put the 1/4"? Would putting it in the input do damage? There is also a preamp in and a preamp out. Can I use those?

If anyone could suggest a link where I could learn the basics of how pre amps work, I would appreciate it.

Thanks
Dave

Re: Hooking up 2 amps

Jeesus! Dont put the speaker out from one amp into the input of another amp. It will kill it. The preamp beefs upthe very small signal output from the guitar so that the poweramp can amplify it further to drive the speaker. A guitar outputs voltages in the millivolt range (thousanth of a volt) whereas a speaker is driven by as much as 50 to 100 volts. The only option you have is to find the "line out" or "effects out" of you amp (low voltage) and plug this into the input of the other amp.You could also take the headphone out from one amp to the input of the other one if necessary but this is not a very nice solution. The other option is to split the signal at your guitar (a "Y" connector) run two leads, one to each amp.

You can plug the speaker out of an amp only to a spearker box (quad, PA speaker, you know).

Have fun!

how to restring a floyd rose bridge?

I tried to restring my jackson guitar & it has the floyd rose bridge,how do you restring & tune the bridge?

Re: how to restring a floyd rose bridge?

: I tried to restring my jackson guitar & it has the floyd rose bridge,how do you restring & tune the bridge?

well you need to replace and tune up one string at a time ad not take all the strings off at once so that you can tune one string at a time and not have to mes with it for hours to try and get it back in tune and at the zero position. I myself dont like the floyed roses on the jacksons the only company I found with good roses is Ibanez they are made for crazeaz like Vai and Satriani those ones never come out of tune but any other rose does.

Anyone heard of this Strat copy?

I have just started reconditioning a Japanese Strat copy, and under the (old, painted over) head paint I could make out the words Global Sound Morris, with Morris in a different font. Anyone heard of it??

Yep, I do own a vintage Morris guitar, too.
They were said to be a low-cost offspring of Washburn at those days.
Not the worst, you could buy. Mine sounds better every year ;-)

Have fun with yours

Me brazilian, need help to buy a multi effects

Hi, there. I'm new in this group and need some tips to buy a multieffects. I live in Brazil and I don't know too much about it. I've seen some digitech models (which names I don't remember), and some said that it's better than zoom. I've seen zoom gfx4 and gfx8, but didn't try.
I'll not use it professionally, just for fun and for playing with friends. What is the best model for my profile (non professional player), in price, number of resources, etc.????

Thank you for your attention. Thanks a lot.

Yo...just one more question...

Whats the best guitar for a beginner?...I've heard the Epiphone Les Paul Special 2 is ideal...but i've also heard it sucks....that goes for the Ibanez GSA60 and the Peavey Raptor Plus as well...any sugestions?

Re: Yo...just one more question...

You will hear that about every guitar, best thing for a beginner is to try out a bunch in your price range and get the one that feels most comfortable and is decently built, you can worry about all the other stuff (pups, electronics etc) once you get good enough for it to matter.

I agree that you should try a # of guitars and one that feels best, sounds the best and has the best over-all value would be choice.
I do have a few suggestions. Dont buy the epiphone as I have a high end Epiphone Les paul (List $999. Paid $600). and I hate the tuning keys and the high end OBL Lace pickups. The pickups have to be yanked and tuning keys replaced with grovers before you have a decent Epiphone Les Paul. Here is a few you should check out:
Yamaha Pacifica PAC012 Strat syle that has a unique cutaway on the backside for $169.99.
Lots of Kramer guitars @ MusicYo.com
Ibanez RG Standard or GAX70 which looks like a PRS. Both for $199.99.
If you like BC Rich you can get a Warlock for $169.99.
You have a lot of options but I would suggest looking at MusicYo.com for the Kramers. The downside to that is, You cant play the guitar so you really dont know how it "feels". After you find your guitar, take it to a shop and have it set up.Intonation, action ect.. Otherwise you can hamper your sound.
Good luck.

Epiphone Texan

Hi---Maybe someone can answer my question. I bought a 2000 Epiphone Texan, used, in 2001, for about $375. Now, a couple years later, I see that the Texan has been re-issued, selling for over a grand. How might this new Texan differ from my earlier one? Are the new ones simply over-priced or are the new ones using superior materials over previous Texans like mine? Thanks!

Re: Epiphone Texan

The most famoust texans are from '64 thru 66 because were used by mccartney in key songs such as yesterday. also al stewart used them extensively in the early seventies. prices are between 2k to 5k each for a sixties vintage. the reissues (elite texans) are nice copies but as always not quite the same you are like getting 500th or thereabouts. enjow
