TIME SENSITIVE***Need Pricing or any info on a Gibson I have never heard of

Hoping someone can help me with this as soon as possible. A roomate owes me money that he cannot pay and will sell a guitar that I have never heard of to pay his debt. It is a Gibson WRC. I guess it is probably the closest thing to a strat they made, but I can't seem to find any info on it. It looks very much like the Ibanez RG series. It was made in 89, and the serial number is 80039718. If anyone has any info on this particular model, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a million. -Dave

Re: TIME SENSITIVE***Need Pricing or any info on a Gibson I have never heard of

I've seen a few advertised on the Internet and the highest price was $900! They were made between '84 and '86 but were discontinued due to lack of popularity. I'm told Ebay is a good place to find out about them.

Guitar out of tune higher frets

I can tune my guitar and it is ok (open string), but if I press the 6th String (E) on the 5th fret I should get an A note, and it is sharp. Other strings are not as bad... This was not always like this. I never abused nor dropped the guitar. Anybody ever hear of it.
Thanks in advance

Re: Guitar out of tune higher frets

Check the intonation, you need to adjust the saddles on the bridge, if you play a harmonic on the 12th fret, then hold down that string (lightly) on the 12th both notes should sound the same, adjust the saddle for that string until they do sounf the same.

Pickup Advice.

HI,

I'm in the process of refurbing an old Les paul copy, i've sorted the machine heads ( and various other mechanical defects ) - but have a problem with the pickups ( one doesnt work ! ).

I'd like to upgrade the pickups ( obviously replacing the defective one ) but don't know what to go for.

I'd like somehting a little brighter than the usual quite bassy tone that this guitar usually produces.

Is it possible to get closer to a fender single coil sound for one pickup, and leave the other as a humbucker ( with more punch ) ?

Does anyone have any advice / recommendations on what pickups to try.

I suppose i mostly play bluesy / rock stuff ( HAve a strat and another LP copy - thought i'd try something different with this guitar )

Thanks.

Re: Pickup Advice.

i take it you want to change the bridge pickup? if you do want a single coil sound on a les-paul (ughh!!) then get a normal sized direct replacement for that pickup, a seymour duncan or better still a kent armstrong, and run the pickup to a switch so that you can 'coil tap' it, flick the switch and it uses one of its 2 coils, flick it the other way and it uses both, that way you get the best of both worlds.

If anyone is interested, I am putting a free MP3 download of acoustic music on the web every month from my site

It is about the tour I did supporting King Crimson

Crate GX212+ humming

I recently aquired this amp minus the speakers. When I hook the speakers up, it makes a loud humming noise and no signal comes through. It doesn't matter what channel it is on. When I go through the speaker out into another amp, it works fine. The speakers that I have are only 50 watt and the amp is rated at 120 w RMS. Even when I turn down all of the pots it still hums at the same volume. It sounds like a speaker hook-up problem. Any help?

Hi well I bought a dark green Gibson U2 in 1989....
