replacement parts for older Les Paul Custum

Help! Anyone! I've got an early seventies era Les Paul with gold hardware. New Machine heads by Gibson, made by Grover don't fit in the holes. The holes in the new Gibson bridge are too wide for the posts, so the bridge tends to move a little. Does anyone know where to get replacement Gibson parts that will work? Thanks in advance.

Takamine Electric Guitar

We have a Takamine Electric Guitar and I would like some history on it. I know that Takamine does not make the Electric Guitar anymore and I want to know when that last made just an electric guitar and why they stopped making them. I heard some stories on it and I just want to find out if the story I heard was correct.

Re: Takamine Electric Guitar

oopssssssss posted too fast without typing.

i actually have the same guitar and bought it about 11 years ago. takamine doesn't give out much information apart from the fact it's quite unique, they only made electric guitars in 1984-85 they were all mahogany set neck with overwound pickups. it's a pretty unique guitar and i'm quite sure that i'm never gonna sell it.
this is all i know about this guitar.

Gibson Hummingbird & string choice

OK, I just got a 'bird (ordered it, which I had to do where I live) and the neck isn't straight, the action's way too high. Otherwise everything appears to be perfect. The problems will of course be fixed, but at the same time I'd like to know what the best strings might be to put on this model: strumming, fingerpicking; own stuff, cool country, blues. Thanks!

Bands setup info

Does anyone know a good site or anything that gives descriptons of bands set ups(e.g smashing pumpkins)?

Making a Guitar

what would be the best wood to use if I want good sound, light weight and durability. I could also do with it being cheap!

Re: Making a Guitar

Depends on the type of tone you're after. Warm Les Paul?...Bright Fender...etc. Let me know and I can give recommendations after that. Also, go to www.warmoth.com and browse around. They have some good descriptions of woods and their tonal properties. www.lumberlady.com sells pretty good wood for making electric guitar bodies. I recommend you go for something different than the norm...like I built one with mesquite on top of mahagony with a maple neck. And it sounds great and unlike any guitar you can commercially buy, to me that makes it worth alot more.

Re: Making a Guitar

I was wanting to make a guitar with a warm tone like a Les Paul. If you can give me recommendations on making that type that would be awesome. Thanks a lot.

what amp should i use

i am a new guitarist, i havent got my guitar yet, but i was wondering if the amp i had my eye on is good enough for me to use, i have been lookin at the fender 15R frontman series II, which features a 15w 8" speaker, with reverb, would this amp be good since i am a beginner?
thanx
shane

Re: what amp should i use

I bought an amp similiar to that (my first was a fender frontmman 38watt) for my first amp. It was a reliable amp with nice sound quality. I would reccomend it for beginners.

Re: what amp should i use

thanks for the recommendation, i think i will get that amp, and then ask my grandmother for a distortion pedal for christmas.

need photo of 1955-era Kay electric guitar

I am making a documentary and need a picture of a Kay electric guitar from the mid-1950s. Apparently, it was called a "Speed Demon" and came in both 2- and 3-pickup configurations. (Preferably, I need the 3-pickup version). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

amp buzzing!

ive got a new guitar with a humbucker and when i plug it in the amp buzzes,and when i touch the metal screws on the humbucker it gos away any ideas how to get rid of this?(it only does it when distortion is turned on)

Humbuckers to buzz when you aren't in contact with the guitar - not exactly sure but it's something to do with the way they gather sound.

You can reduce amp buzz generally by ensuring that you only have 1 earth wire on your setup. For instance, you may have a multi-plug extension. Leave the earth wire in that (so it's act as earth for all your equipment), and disconnect (and make safe) the earth wires from your amp, effects processor etc.

Use a surge protector plug as well to prevent any electrical 'accidents'!

This sounds like a problem that we have with my amps when the power ground is not good. If you don't have a three-wire power cord, you might look into one. If you do, the recepticle may not be grounded properly. They make these OK lights for about $8 and they are at the harware store. Just plug it in and if it reads OK then it is OK otherwise, something is wrong... EKP

distortion problem..

on my distortion pedal when i turn my pedal up over 6 on the distortion level knob i get a muffled heavy sound any ideas how to get a clearer heavier sound..(its a ibenez fat cat pedal)

Re: distortion problem..

Get A Metal Zone. To answer all your distortion crunch needs!

Re: distortion problem..

Me,personally,I never liked the Fat Cat.They're too tempramental depending on the amp,guitar or pickups.
I use a Smash-box most of the time.At low dist. levels it's still very clear.Kinda frail though.

You could try turning the treble up, and the bass down on your amp - that would give you a clearer sound. Also, depending on where your volume is set to on your amp and guitar, that could muffle the sound (having your guitar colume down can muffle, having your amp volume too high can distort and muffle the sound - but having your amp volume to low can muffle as well!!!!!!)

In conclusion(!), play with you eq settings on your amp and guitar - if that doesn't work, burn the pedal and get a new one!
