Sambora +12 dB mid boost

Hi,
I'm searching for the schematic of Richie's mid boost circuit! I can find one for the clapton boost, but not for richie's! Would be glad bout your information! thanks!

Hannes

Re: Sambora +12 dB mid boost

Hannes

The current Sambora strat doesnt use a PCB assembly - it uses an inductor to give the 12db boost. The older model sambora strat DID use a PCB, and it was a modified Clapton circuit.

I have a good schematic of the Clapton PCB and would be happy to share it with you and give instructions on have to wire your strat like a older Sambora.

email me for more info.

Ryan

Yea The Trem Arm

yea ive got it stuck ,, it snapped off ,, stupid fucking thing lol .. now i cant get it out ,, ive screwed off the back n things ,, my strings are fine now ,, i jus want the piece of metal out > anyone had this problem before and know the solution ?

little thing called Easy Out

Basically, you drill a hole, then reverse-thread the new hole. Drill a screw into it, and as you tighten the new screw, the old piece of metal backs out.

Any hardware store will have the kit.

Franciscan Model 590

I am looking for the value and approximate age if anyone knows, of a Franciscan Model 590 acoustic guitar. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Anyone have an Idea

I have a few guitars I wondered what the going price is on them. 1. Ibanez Artist 1984 model I think it is antique violin finish with gold hardware, it is in great shape.
2. Fender strat 1986 usa made with lace pickups and locking machinehead. It's kinda of a blueish purple colour and is like new in condiditon. Rosewood fret board too.

Thanks for any help. to all who e-mail me.

Andrew

Re: Anyone have an Idea

No idea on price, it'll all be dependent on the condition and market.

The Lace pickups in your '86 aren't original, as those didn't come out until the early 90's in Strats. They had an earlier version, for a year or two, that used three pushbuttons rather than a 5-way switch. The pickus were "scalloped" near the mounting screws, rather than flat all the way across, and weren't Lace pickups. Those were used as late as '87.

Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

What Guitar Does Tom Delonge use now. In a video of blink 182 playing live in Japan this month or the las month, tom was using a brown (with a white strip) kind of Gibson 335 shape. It sounded pretty alright. So does anyone know what make it is.

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

It's a Gibson ES-333 with a few minor mods. I don't think there'll be a signature model anytime soon.

http://www.gibson.com/products/gibson/classic/ES-333.html

That's the Gibson model.

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

Signature model will be out by end of the year.
See Total guitar november 2003 issue.

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

They r realsing the signature model at the end of this year

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

I love the new tom delonge gibson es-33

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

The new Tom DeLonge Signature Gibson is a classic semi-hollowbody design. The idea was taken from the Gibson ES 333. The tenative name for this guitar is the TD 333. This guitar has one Gibson 'Dirty Fingers' exposed-coil humbucker and one volume control and standard jack. This guitar comes in brown with cream stripes. Here is the link to it from the Gibson Guitars web site: http://www.gibson.com/products/gibson/classic/tomdelonge.html

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

....... Dude its a Gibson S-333 its in this months total guitar magazine

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

i don't know but I play in a hardcore band and i bought the delong strat and it was the smartest thing i ever did. i ripped out the duncan invaders in it and threw in some EMG 81's. I run it threw a Morley (Bad Horsie 2)wah, Metal Zone(distortion/Boss), Flanger(Boss), and a chorus(Danelectro/18v). And this guitar will kill on any amp.

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

u took the invader out!?!?!??! YYY i have the fender tom sig n its amazing, that pickup is wicked, it has one of the best sounds iv ever heard, i put it through a marshall mg 250 dfx

Its a gibson, buy the new total guitar magazine, and check it out. worth the money

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

It's his new signature model. He stopped his contract at fender and now he has a contract with gibson. I think it's just a model that already exists, but he just putted the white line on it... I don't like this one, i liked his stratocaster better, I LOVED HIS STRATOCASTER

Re: Tom Delonge`s New Guitar

It's basically a Gibson ES-335 except it only has a bridge pickup, and it only has one volume, and it has a matte brown finish w/ light tan racing stripes up the middle. This guitar is not available to the public :(
