Seeking info.

Does anyone know anything about the Seville brand of guitars? I have an S-32 model and have no knowledge about it whatsoever other than it was made in Korea. I love this guitar, it is probably the best sounding guitar I've ever played. If someone has any info on these guitars, please let me know.

Marshall TSL 100 footswitch

I always play at clubs & little gigs and the stages are generally too small. The TSL footswitch (5 functions)is too big and I really never used the functions for the FX & reverb, so:Do you know were can I find the schematics in order to build a reduced version so I can to switch only the 3 channels?

Thanks so much.

BEST ALL AROUND STRINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

can you tell me which are,in your oppinion, the best all around strings for low tunings and stuff like that?

Re: BEST ALL AROUND STRINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

heavier gauge strings would be better for drop tunings, go for 10-52's i think d'adario do a set, they are usualy called 'heavy bottom' sets.

Lowden O-32 for sale

Making room for a new love. I am selling my Lowden O-32. It's set up for fingerstyle. It's a real boomer with amazing even balance, bass-to-treble. It's in near-mint condition with Hiscox case. Firm price at $2250 (a great deal). These are no longer made, as George has split off to make only custom orders (I have one). Please send e-mail and I can forward photos.

Re: Lowden O-32 for sale

Hey would like to see from photos of your Lowden guitar if you still have it? Where are you located?

Many thanks

rockson guitar

Hello! I'm from Germany and I have a Rockson powerstrat-like Guitar bought in 1987 in Munich. The sound on the bridge HB was okay, but the sound on the middle/neck SC's was terrible, so I replaced them. Now it sounds better. I think, Rockson has built cheap guitars and more expensive ones like mine with Kahler/Flyer-Tremolo and good hardware.

Robert Randolph Tabs

Hey there, just wondering if anyone knew where to find Robert randolph tabs for the 6 string. especially the march, Thanks!

Best prices on EMG pickups

Hey, all. I have a '96 Fender Standard Strat and want to replace the stock pickups with an EMG Kirk Hammett 81/S/S pre-wired artist setup. I was thinking about buying it at Guitar Center, but I'm curious as to if anyone knows an EMG dealer that might have it for cheaper. Thanks.

Re: BEST GAUGE OF STRINGS FOR MY GEETAR?????????????????????????

i dont like ernie ball strings much but they do a 10-52 set, perfect for drop tunings and standard, they call them a heavy bottom set.

Late 60's - early 70's Zeppelin sound

Does anyone know how to get the sounds of Jimmy Page on the first 4 Zeppelin albums. The sound I'm looking for is great sustain with what seems to be very little distortion and heavier sounds on the treble strings. I have a 20th anniversay Les Paul standard and a Mesa Boogie amp. I'm thinking of songs like 4 Sticks, When the Levee Breaks, Black Dog, stairway, etc. Let me know what your configuration and settings are, guitars, amps, etc.

Thanks in advance
Parris

Re: Late 60's - early 70's Zeppelin sound

his main guitar on the first album was a telecaster, a standard one, how the hell you get a tele to sound as rocky as that i'll never know, maybe the messa is where you are going wrong? maybe you need an early 100 watt marshall head, they do a re-issue? and then of course you need jimmys feel and fingers!

Re: Late 60's - early 70's Zeppelin sound

The Mesa is not the best amp for that vintage sound. Try turing the gain down to a fairly clean but loud sound that breaks up if you hit the strings hard. Then turn the mids and treble up full, and the bass on half. Use that as a good place to start. Adjust as necessary. You want to have a tone that will allow you to use the neck pickup for chords and lead (so not too muddy...that's why we have not so much bass), and the treble for cutting leadwork. To use the trble for rhythem, turn the guitar tone down almost half, and maybe back the volume a bit. Hope all this helps.

I agree the Mesa may not be the best amp, but I too play a Les Paul standard thru an F-100 Combo Mesa-Boogie, sitting on top of a 2x12 solid back cab. You can pretty much get just the sound you seek by doing this: use the clean channel; pull the gain knob out for bright sound (that's not in the owners manual) and turn the gain up to about 90%; you will have to turn your overall volume down a bunch, maybe to 2 or 3. The LP pickups are so sensitive (made for soft 40s & 50s easy listening & jazz), that they will breakup themselves simply by playing hard & hitting the strings hard, you'll get some limited distortion there. The setting I use on the other controls are usually about 7 or 8 on the treble and about mid-way or 5 on the mid & bass. I like a bright sound w/o mud or a covered-up tone, plus my hearing's ability isn't what it used to be. All the settings I just described are also just about where I set up to get Lynyrd Skynard's early tone, kinda like Gimme 3 Steps, etc.
The Mesa has too much distortion in the other channels to really get a LedZep or Skynard tone except for maybe Whole Lotta Love or some thing like that. Now, if you need gobs of heavy chunk for let's say, Enter Sandman, then you can sure get it!! Enjoy!!

Rock-n-fish

I't's a amazing coincidence you responded to my question. Thanks for the clean channel pullout info. I never new that existed on my amp - bought it 4 months ago. The wierd part is that I write songs and my favorite song is called, "I like fish'n and Rock & Roll". Based on that alone, I trust your advise :)

Thanks

It's wierd 'cause he was using a supro amp, which from my investigation, was used more for hawaiian steel guitar - it must have been suped up some how.

Maybe we should ask the master himself - do you have Jimmy Page's email address? ... No... really, ... do you? :)

Parris

Re: Late 60's - early 70's Zeppelin sound

Ok folks,

For real now.....does anyone have
Jimmy's email address?

From the time I was Thirteen years old Jimmy Page was my idol. I have spent my entire life playing the guitar, and I have even once entered a video contest, Jimmy was able to view my band as one of twelve in the video competition.

I have a band currently and have some new music,
I am hoping to contact him so that I can send him the mp3 files. Even if he can't help me in the music business, I think it would be a thrill to have none other than the master actually hear my songs.

jimmy is so cool

I met jimmy page at a festival in henley, (oxon or berks county)he was really cool and he saw me playing percussion in the percussion tent, he said that i was super good and that has pretty much been what i've been boasting about since late july

Re: Late 60's - early 70's Zeppelin sound

Yea, get a vintage strat and a small practice amp with something less than a 12" speaker and find a nice long hallway.... and crank it.

Daion Guitars Wanted

I collect Daion guitars. If anyone has any for sale I would like to hear from you.
Call Dann @ 530-624-5946

Re: Daion Guitars Wanted

I own 2 Daion guitars and am considering sellng both.

'81 Caribou, tan (been played a lot)
HH-555 Headhunter, burgundy (mint condition)

I bought both guitars new when I was in college from the American distributor in Waco TX. Never got into electric, so the HH-555 stayed in its case.

I am currently checking around for values on both guitars. If someone reads this and could suggest prices, I'd appreciate it. Dann, I'll call your number and see if you're interested (and how much you suggest the guitars are worth).

Ron

Re: Daion Guitars Wanted

I have an accoustic model, dark mahogony on back, cedar front, rosewood fret board. Still an incredible sounding guitar. Don't know the Value, but would appreciate any input
