Vox AD120VTX

Just got this amp and I can't access all of the factory preset programs. My amp won't access banks 5 through 8. I can only get banks 1 through 4. So I am only getting 16 orf the 32 factory presets. What's my problem?

You have banks 5 - 8 as banks 1. - 4. there is a difference than the 1 - 4.

bass EQ for guitar

I have a bass EQ that I may start using as my guitar EQ. It is a Boss GEB-7 Bass Equalizer. What is the difference between this EQ and the guitar EQ? Will it sound any different?

Ovation 1685 Adamas II

I was given a beatiful yet odd guitar as a gift.
It is an 82' Ovation 1685 Adamas II. The guitar was setup with both left handed and right handed features. I was told it was made for a specific artist however I don't know who the artist is. If anyone is familiar with Ovation Adamas guitars and who
the artists are they were made for let me know. The guitar appears to be all factory original. If your an Ovation junkie and would like help me out let me know and I'll send you a few photos.

learning

hey ima 9 year old kid and i wanna be a musician when i grow up,what kind og guitar should i have my mom buy me?thanks

Re: learning

Hey,
how's it going buddy, its always good to have new guitarists come along, for the guitar, i strongly suggest you start with a classical or accoustic guitar and work your way up to an electric. it doesnt matter what brand just classical or accoustic will do you fine
Good Luck
M.J.

Re: learning

: hey ima 9 year old kid and i wanna be a musician when i grow up,what kind og guitar should i have my mom buy me?thanks

That's the same age I started to learn. Definitely start with an acoustic guitar. You don't want a $2000 Gibson to start with, but you don't want necessarily want a Sears & Roebuck guitar either (mine was from a "cigar factory"...yech). E-mail me with any questions. Glad to help a budding musician.

ESP Clone

Hello all, i am making a ESP strat custom clone just like the one in the "One" video by metallica in which Kirk plays the guitar, so i need some help. I need some ESP headstock decals(preferably ESP Custom) but ill easily settle for ESP as the logo. Also i am looking for seafoam green guitar paint and need to know where to find some of these things, if anybody has a bunch of ESP tuners and ESP neckplate, and 3 ESP single coil pickups, or an actual ESP Strat style Neck, id love to buy em from you, SO, email me with any supplies you might have for sale or for donation and i hope to have it done soon. Thanks to all for looking and im out for now. Trevor

Re: ESP Clone

Ok that kind of destroys the reason of making a clone, hence i am making a clone, so im afraid not, i dont feel like stripping down a P.O.S. guitar paint job and headstock and ruining the whole damn guitar, id rather buy the kit i have and paint it to be just like the model Kirk uses,

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE STRINGS ON A STRATOCASTER?

First of all, i am the proud owner of a Sqier Strat [it's just like a fender stratocaster], but am mad because today i broke my .011 [B] string, and i don't know how to change it. so, if you could please email me with info, i would be a very happy person.

The Cheatar [a 15 foot stratocaster with a picture of the cheat on it]

Dear Peoples of Strongbadia,
I wanted to anounce the arrival of the Cheatar! The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame asked us to paint a 15 foot fiberglass guitar for them to display! When i first saw it, i might have yelled HOLY CRAP, or did i? Anywho, come check it out! it'll probably only be on the site for so long. Directions:
1. Go to www.homestarrunner.com
2. wait for the icon in the upper-right hand corner to say "what we did last week" [and then click on it]
3. sift flour and mix dry ingredients together

see you there [i hope i get my can of peas open][written by Nate the great who goes to Wainwright]

Re: HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE STRINGS ON A STRATOCASTER?

It depends on what style bridge your guitar has. Is it fixed, tremolo, string-through? Each is strung differently.

Re: HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE STRINGS ON A STRATOCASTER?

AH MAN.... YOU ARE IN A SERIOUS BIG BIG PROBLEM...... A BROKEN STRING.... GOD!... YOU BETTER TAKE YAR "SQUIRE" OR WHATEVER IT SPELLS TO A PROFESSIONAL.... IT MAY BE EXPENSIVE... BUT WHO CARES!... GOOD LOCK!

Hit it with a hammer, that always works. If it doesnt try glue or gum. If all above fails, burn it and commit suicide.

my pick ups are noisey

hi dudes
i encountered a problem as my first mid and last register makes a noise like zzzzz !!
ok i have a stratocaster mexican
what the hell is going on with my pick ups?expired?
i have a live for next week and i'm in a rush
helpp meeee
tnx
cheers

Re: my pick ups are noisey

Your first problem is the fact that it's a Mex strat with single coils. You could try to change out the pickups for something a little higher end or go with single coiled size humbuckers. Also, you could have a loose ground, or some crappy solder joints in the electronics. Changing out all of the electronics is probably the way to go.

Re: my pick ups are noisey

Before you go and tear your guitar apart hoping that new pickups will solve the problem, take it to your local guitar shop and have a qualified tech take a look at them. It could just be a simple wiring repair. No need to sink a bunch of money into new pickups just yet. Your stock pickups are quite good.

Phil

Re: my pick ups are noisey

I don't know what your guitar techs charge but where I'm at it's $50 just to open it up. And if something is wrong...god help you. About 1/3 the cost of new pickups, anyway, just for the looksy.

alternate tunings advice PLEASE

Hi.

I want some advice on alternate tunings. I've been putting together some songs together on guitar and piano, but I wanted to figure out the easiest way to figure out the easiest fingerings using tunings to do this (as many as open strings as possible). Is there a programme online, where I can programme in the different notes I'm using within each chord that brings up the easiest placings in different tunings (I'm open minded about the note order). I don't mind tuning a string up a semitone or down a tone as I've got a small body guitar.

Thanks
