Re: Prince

This is what I've heard and read.
Prince's main concern was musical,sound arrangment and production.He's notoriously "STONE HANDED" on these issues.Very demanding!
Guitar playing,didn't seem a huge concern for him later in his career.He had a host of other baddass guitar players to take the load.Dez Dickerson,Miko Weaver,and virtuoso Wendy Malovin to name a few.

Prince is definatley a BAD MOFO!His style tends toward Jimmy Hendrix,Eddie Hazel,Muddy Waters...very bluesy,hard edge,wah-wah powered boogie woogie.
"LETS GO CRAZY",the end solo is Prince.The Middle solo is Wendy."WHEN DOVES CRY"is Wendy,but "TEMPTATION" is definatly Prince."BAMBI"is vintage Prince.He's also a good rythym guitarist,a FONKAY bass player and a powerful drummer!

But he deserves more credit than just as a musician.
Prince kept traditional POWER FUNK alive,well into the 90's!Especially after '95,when music took a turn for the worst.He also helped George Clinton and P-Funk make a breif,but spectacular come back!

Good Luck

strataverius restoration

I would like to know how I would go about finding someone that works on and restores old violins.

Re: strataverius restoration

I'm highly doubtful that you have a Stradivarius (as it's sometimes correctly spelled). If you did, you wouldn't be asking this question, especially here.

That said, I suggest typing the words "violin restoration" into the search box at Yahoo. I got 20,000 hits. I'll bet at least one of them knows a little about it.

Need a manual for my portastudio 488

I thought I could figure it out by trial and error, but that was ridiculous. I'd greatly appreciate some help.

running Ampeg 8X10 cabs through SVT-350H

I am trying to run 2 8X10 cabs through the SVT-350H solid state head.. But when I do, I get a rattle )(like a blown speaker) out of two of the top speakers in each cabinet.. Is this an ohmage problem, and is it even possible to run them through that head?? The cabs sound fine individually..

Yes this is an ohmage problem. And no its not possible to run them through the head. Thats why your getting that rattle. Try taking your speakers in for repair and let a profesional look at them.

help with raising action

I just got a new washburn accoustic a few months ago... and I'm having a big problem with the action. It's way too low. let me put it this way, the first three frets on the high E all sound exactly the same... a dull thud. the lower strings arent that bad but playing open chords sounds HORRIBLE. I'm a pretty experienced player but I've never had to deal with anything like this... can anyone tell me how I can fix it by myself, because I'm just a poor college student with 3 cents in my bank account.

thanks

Re: help with raising action

First off if it has a truss rod just adjust it so that neck bows away from the strings that should help sum. Secondly if it is how u say then there might be a problem with the neck (warped, twisted, etc...)if thats the case then your gonna need a new axe or a professional to fix it

Price for 1967 12 string Martin

Hi all. I am looking to sell my 1967 D-1220 Martin. I really don't know how much it is worth. Got a couple of people interested and don't know what to ask. Any help is appreciated. I've owned it since 1970. Thanks.

Gibson L6S

I have an ebony L6S Gibson (1963 according to the serial number). Does anyone know what it's worth in good condition?

Re: Gibson L6S

: I have an ebony L6S Gibson (1963 according to the serial number). Does anyone know what it's worth in good condition?..........
This would be impossible since the L6s was made only 7 years 1973 to 1979-80 from the Blue Book from Gibson USA. I HAVE A BLONDE 1977 & EBONY 1973. THERE is a great difference in the way Gibson kept the Serial numbers.

They had master craftsmen that didn’t want to relocate from Kalamazoo and looks to have had a silent rebellion by not staying in the configuration that Gibson held fairly solid for sum 40-50 years or so.

Make sure you are using the older format of reading the code number. The former chronology order is used at times but can be only partially applied. Read the very vague explanation from the blue book. I had a in-depth discussion with my former band mate and if you ignore the obvious “sometimes” , “not always” type wording in the confusing explanation you could have a couple different philosophies by the end of the read.

Re: Takamine F 390 S Guitar

: I have 1977 Takamine F 390 S guitar that I bought new. Does anyone have any idea what the guitar is worth today?

I believe this guitar goes for $300(poor conition) to $600(excellent condition)the reason being that the Guild that it copied is available for around $650 to $1200.I bought mine 2 years ago for $450. Mark
