Pick Guard on Les Paul

as im sure most of you know some les paul models have pick guards...i was wondering if they're covering up anything...because personally i dontlike the pick guard...and im planning on buying a les paul and i want to take it off...just wondering if its covering up and wiring or anything like that

Re: Pick Guard on Les Paul

they dont cover anything Sam, its quite safe to take them off, just 2 screws, most people do just that.

Re: Pick Guard on Les Paul

i own a lespaul am i'm proud to tell you that by unscrewing two screws on the side and bottom of the boddy/pickgaurd you can remove it as if it never was there. and it covers nothing. i love gibson !

Did i pick a good guitar

I just bought a Jackson S20 and a Marshall MG100hdfx with 412 slant cab...do u think it will sound good

Re: Did i pick a good guitar

: I just bought a Jackson S20 and a Marshall MG100hdfx with 412 slant cab...do u think it will sound good

its not a bad combo. it really depends on what kind of sound your looking for. with guitars the more money you spend the better the guitar.

Re: Did i pick a good guitar

Thats a good combination for metal/hard rock for sure. Good luck. Jacksons are nice guitars and even the cheaper marshalls hold they're own to the higher end competitors solid state amps

Metronome

what is if for exactly? and is it worth picking one up?

Re: Metronome

it tick tocks, its for keeping time, you can set various BPM (Beats per minute) if you set it for 110 it will tick tock 110 times in a minute, you can get them built into some guitar tuners, useful things to have (especialy for drummers) but i wouldnt go out of my way to buy one,

Samick

Jazz and Blues

i know that usually, jazz and blues involves Lucille Les Paul's and all...but can it involve other guitars cuz i know a strat isnt an exception...but i dont know what other guitars...like...what kind of hollow bodies and all
thnx
M.J.

Re: Jazz and Blues

any guitar is made for pretty much any guitar is made for blues, i was looking through the encyclopaedia of jazz and blues and there are guys playing flying v's and jags and stuff

well..

jazz and blues is pretty vague. if your talking jazz fusion, there are guys out there playing ibanez rg's and what not. eric johnson plays a strat, and a gibson es335. mike stern plays a tele.

but if your talking about traditional jazz, hollowbodys give the standard tone. you sacrifice sustain, but great fat acoustic tones can be achieved
with full hollow guitars (ie, Es 137)

semi hollows produce very warm smoothe sounds, but not as much texture. these guitars are ideal for mixing traditional jazz with rock and blues influences. my favorite would be pat methenys signature ibanez model.

Gibson SG Standard

Im thinking of updating my guitar, i played a new SG standard at teh store teh other day and was blown away. I played a LP std, thought "hm this is nice" but was then completely taken aback by the SG. Soo, to all u SG players or anyone w/ advice- how do u guys like the sound/playability/versitality etc of the sg. I play rock an heavy metal. Also, i hear nowadays Gibson's quality is low, should i go for a used one? if so wat year? thanx

Re: Gibson SG Standard

HEY
I just bought an sg standard for $750 used (DAMN GOOD PRICE I THINK). I love it, the sound is amazing! i would say that if you could find a gibson sg standard in good condition for less that $900 you should get it. But yes gibson's quality is not as good as it used to be but i hear that their standards have stayed good quality but gone waaay up in price.

Re: Gibson SG Standard

I have a '89 les paul standard, and a '98 SG standard, they both sound very different, they play very different too, they are both absolutly fantastic instruments, but the one i play most is the SG, it has such a tone variation between the 2 pickups, always puts a smile on my face when i play it, go for the SG, dont know about build quality, but if i was you i'd save the money and go for a good used one.

Marshall DSL100 OR DSL50?????

Hi,

I am about to buy a Marshall DSL100 or DSL50 and here in Australia there is only about $100AU diffrence not much at all in the price.. i was told that the DSL50 was better because you can turn it right up without any problems where the DSL100 will have? is this true? at teh moment im running a solid state amp an its loud as hell but solidstate as you all know is shit!

PLEASE HELP?

Re: Marshall DSL100 OR DSL50?????

the 50 will blow the tiles off the roof, the 100 will blow the roof off with the tiles!, both are going to be damn loud, are you going to play them in a band? just at home?

Re: Marshall DSL100 OR DSL50?????

No in a band.. we are pretty loud.. and my other guitarist has a JCM800 100watt and my bassplayer has a full stack which is insaine! and i have a half stack but a crappy solid state head using my Boss GT-6 to emulate a pre-amp soldano amp.. but it just dose not cut the cake at the moment its loud but not good..

Re: Marshall DSL100 OR DSL50?????

go for the 100, it will be a bit louder, you have a master volume and gain for each channel, you should get a decent low volume sound out of it too, if you are in a band and you need the headroom then the 100 is the choice to go for.

Question on identifying a guitar.

Yes hello, recently I found this very old guitar in my gf's attic, she said I could have it... anyhow, in the process of finding out information about it but.... yup, you guessed it there is a problem... the tag is partially eating away by moths or something, it is a classic, quite small, the the first two letters on the tag visable being "MA...."... the workmanship is good, as is the overall body from what I can tell *carpentry is my hobby*, it doesnt have nasty signs of visable glue, etc.
I have pictures and will take more if anyone thinks they might be of assistance.
Much appreciated.
David

Buzzing strings

Any suggestion on what causes buzzing string on an acoustic guitar?

Re: Buzzing strings

have you changed strings recently?? if you changed to a lighter gauge it will cause less stress on the neck and cause the neck straighten and the strings to buzz, if its one string in particular on a certain place on the neck it could be a 'proud' fret in which case you have to have your frets stoned by a pro guitar repairer, could be your truss rod needs tweeking or your bridge sadle needs lifting, or the nut on the headstock needs adjusting, tell me more about the problem.
