Re: Les Paul Custom Question...

Martin Guitar Comparison

Can someone help me understand the difference between Martin DMXE and Martin 00CXAE guitars (price is pretty comparable appx $600). Thanks.

Re: Martin Guitar Comparison

Based on the model number, the main difference is the shape. D is dreadnout which is the largest. 00 is smaller if I recall correctly.

Since they have E at the end it means they are both fitted with electronics.

guitar beginner

Hi, I've just started playing electric guitar (Fender Stratocaster). Which strings are best to use? Which are most popular, and which are the best acoustic guitar strings also?

Please help

Ta
Reed

Re: guitar beginner

the best strings are the strings you like, some people like ernie balls, slinky, they are ok, but i prefer d'adario, thay make an excellent all rounder, they seem to last as well, elixer do an excellent coated string, they feel a little strange but they last a long long time. gauge wise if you play rock i would suggest a 10-48 set.

pEAVEY AMp?

Hey, I got a Peavey 112 solo series 160 watt guitar amp and I have a lot of questions about it. first off i would like to know about how old it is. B ut mor importantly, I want to know what all the switches and inputs are used for, OK it has the following that i want to know what their functions are:

: -a little 3 way switch on the face that says GND.??
: -high gain low gain inputs(whats the difference?)
: -2 effects inputs on the face send and return?
: -And on the back it has a POWER AMP in, a pre amp out,and aremote awitch in put.
: THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!
: -

Re: pEAVEY AMp?

hi
i would suggest you check at the forums for Peavey amps at www.peavey.com for info about specific amps.
peavey's website also will have the manual for your amp, free, if you want to download a copy of it.
i think the manual would tell you lot of stuff you want to know about your amp.

for now, some general answers:

the send and return are for effects, its called an "effects loop". on most amps that have that feature, it's on the back, the peavey has it on the front.

almost all amps have the power amp input and preamp output in the back. this lets you join it with another amp, or a mixer and stuff like that.

high gain and low gain, i assume mean what they're called? one would be more distortion than another. sometmes this might only mean its got more volume than another one tho, so i am not sure.

check out your manual for your amp at peavey's website. It would have all that and more info.

No Sound on an Ibanez 540s

I just bought an Ibanez 540s used as is. I got a good deal but plugged it in and got NO sound. I asked a friend who said there is a 90% chance it needs a new input jack. Is this true? Please only answer if you know what you're talking about. I plugged it in and it sounds like the cable is grounded, no sound at all at any setting. No apparent funny business in the electronics, looks completely stock. HSH configuration guitar.

Re: No Sound on an Ibanez 540s

sounds like the obvious wiring problem, if you dont get any sound at all, no hum, no buzz, no clicks or rattles on any of the pickup settings or when you move the pots around then its a wire come loose, im not familiar with this guitar just a general veiw, the other thing that came to mind is active pickups, are they active? new battery?? you have done the obvious things like guitar lead and use a different amp then i'd look at that input socket.

Beginner Guitar Question

I need help. I'm going to buy my first guitar, and I was wondering if I should get steel strings or nylon strings. Help!
~MiMi~

Re: Beginner Guitar Question

Nylon strings will be easier on your fingers but no matter what you play your fingers are going to need to get used to them.

I'd get steel strings as the sound is probably more what your going to want anyway. Take it easy on your hands when they hurt, after a few days or a week or two they'll get used to it.
