Another Question for Lee...or anyone else

Sorry about all the questions here Lee but im in the process of getting some money together and getting some gear thats gonna be good for the rest of my life lol.

I was wondering how much a deccent Marshall head and cabinet would cost me?...or if you could give my an idea of a decent one so i can price it. I've been lookin around the net and they all look the same to me, i dont know a whole lot about them.

Re: Another Question for Lee...or anyone else

I forget the name of the model but marshal seels its either a half or full stack amp and head combo for abvout 645 dollars at paradise guitars in beloit, i can go check it out later and get back to you if i can but ive tried it and its a nice amp, supposedly marshal sells that model for cheap for no reason, its not used or anything, i just found that unusual. otherwise ill keep an eye out also. Trevor

Re: Another Question for Lee...or anyone else

you want a JCM2000 its a 2 channel 100watt head, ive played them and they are very good, get a 2nd hand one, make sure it has had no mods done to it, these amps are very reliable, easy to service, and hold their money like a Mercedes CLK, you also need a 2x12 or 4x12 extension cab, 2x12 with celestion vintage 30 speakers would be the best, but the most common type of speaker is the celestion GT75, its a great speaker too, Marshall JCM200 will cost around £350 or $500 and the 2x12 cab around £150 $200, or the 4x12 is around £175 or $250, dont forget if you get this stuff 2nd hand and sell it later, you wont lose money, Marshall kit is as safe as the bank of zurich.

Re: Another Question for Lee...or anyone else

Is the head itself actually a 100 watt speaker or does "100 watt Head" just mean its capable of throwing out 100watts?...you know like a amplifier you'd use when wiring a car stereo system.

Re: Another Question for Lee...or anyone else

The head is the box that sits on top of the speaker cabinet, it houses a 100 watt valve amplifier and thats all, no speakers are in the head, on the back of the head you have a jack socket (usualy 1/4 inch mono) that connects to the speaker cabinet below, the speaker cab can house in most cases either 2 or 4 speakers, (2x12 or 4x12) they can collectively handle various output wattages from the head, if you choose a cabinet with 4x12 inch speakers and those speakers are gt75's, then each speaker is capable of handling 75 watts (hence the name) collectively as a standard mono cabinet they can handle up to 300 watts, 4x12inch (75) or 150 watts for a 2x12 (75), but you could also choose a can housing the 'vintage 30' speakers, each of those handles 60 watts (unlike the name) so you could still go for a 4x12 or 2x12 caninet, but beware the 'greenbacks', they are a 1970's classic rock type speaker, they handle 25watts each which would be ok in a 4x12 but would only handle 50watts in a 2x12 !!. is that any clearer??

Gibson ES-175D serial number help

I have a gibson es-175d with a serial number of 730044 and am trying to figure out the date of this guitar. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Re: Gibson ES-175D serial number help

your serial number has 6 digits begining with a 73, there seems to be little infomation on this number range, but from what i can make out, its from the years '71, '72 or '73, maybe seems a little too obvious to be a 1973 seeing as it begins with a 73, but from what ive read on gibson serial numbers i think yours is definatly around those 3 years.

Acoustic Guitar

Anyone ever hear of "Sonata" guitars? and if so...are they any good?

Re: Acoustic Guitar

: Anyone ever hear of "Sonata" guitars? and if so...are they any good?

Re: Acoustic Guitar

Sonata Guitars are distributed by Brook Mays Music. They are basically a Korean guitar of good quality and are usually a pretty good value. I have owned a few in the past but currently only have their twelve string model. I am pleased with the guitar and wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

Re: Acoustic Guitar

I had a 1980 Sonata Dreadnought given to me by a friend recently. It definitely will not be replacing my usual guitar on stage. It is pretty good for just jamming around on. It's got too much bottom-end and not enough brilliance for me.

Can you identify this acoustic guitar?

I have an acoustic guitar with a rectangular sticker inside that reads Model No. 120776. No brand name, no indication of where it was made. There is a dove on each side of the pick guard sitting on a branch of what looks like roses. Doves and roses are painted on (paint transferred on) black plastic. I think it may be a Gibson Dove knockoff. Thanks. Pam

Changing a Telecaster pickguard

I have never changed out an pickguard on an electric guitar. I have a American made Fender Tele and I'd like to change the stock white pickguard for something a little more snappy. Can anyone describe the process for me? I can handle the part where I unscrew the screws...I'm just now sure if it will require and solder work with the neck pickup. Thanks.

Re: Changing a Telecaster pickguard

take out he screws, slacken off the strings, remove the scratchplate, very simple. No soldering.
