Re: Need Info please!

Sounds like an epiphone explorer but you never described the body, i wanna say its an epiphone gothic explorer/FR (FR meaning floyd rose trem system) if your guitar actually is an epi explorer, they are really nice guitars, a cheap alternative to a gibson explorer, and easily customizable without worry of ruining it.send pictures, Trevor

: Hi I bought this really sick black Epiphone guitar but I don't know the history to it. Can someone please help me on this? I will try to describe the guitar to you as best as I can. It is a solid body with one humbucker and two single coils. The Neck looks like and Explores necks it has black hardware like a Gothic series. The fret board is made out of fose wood, oh and the body has a licnesed Floyd Rose.

Re: Need Info please!

The body style of my guitar really doesn't have the X shape like the explorer really has. It has more of a Ibanez shape expect without the sharp edges. Its really nice and it does have the FR on it. The strange thing it has rare locking for the FR and only eight serial numbers on the neck.

Re: Need Info please!

Yes, I am sorry I forgot to add one more thing the body also looks like the fat epiphone model its had the one humbucker to single coils. The body also has a five way switch and two knobs one for tone and volume. Its sick dude I need to get a camera and take pic. Thanks for your help on this.

Re: Lee!

The Randall looks OK, it all depends on whats good to your ear, i always say if you play it and it sounds good to you, then buy it. Ive never played a Randall, they look as if the metal players use them, so if you like that dimebag type of music then go for it, it wont let you down, but ask yourself why you dont see much Randall about? why does everyone play a Marshall head and stack? why dont the pro's play an Epi les paul? why do they play Gibson les pauls? is the Randall a Valve amp? 200 watts? is it Solid state? how many players use solid state amps? if you want a heavier sound try pushing a good quality distortion pedal through the front of the marshall amp. You should do some research into the sound the you want, look into what your fav players are using, maybe go from there, but dont rush into anything.

Re: Lee!

Good call guys, the Randall really is awesome, but probably would be better suited for metal. I think im gonna take another look at the Marshalls.

Damn Lee!?

Man lee your beatin me to every inquiry here man, wish i was on more often i hardly have time to even read what you guys say to one another, oh well, Lee do you know where i could find the KH spider decal by pushead (like the one on the ESP KH-3) im lookin for a decal that looks like that to put on my flying v between the humbuckers ebcause its empty right there, ok thanks man, cheers. Trevor

Re: Damn Lee!?

Go to either www.ebay.co.uk or www.ebay.com type in
'decal' on the search, and modify it to musical instruments, there are a good few on there. not many ESP but you should e-mail the sellers and ask them for what you want, they should have it.

F hole used guitar

I am looking for a F hole Jumbo acoustic used guitar, preferably Gibson or Hofner

Re: F hole used guitar

why dont you try ebay.com

Re: F hole used guitar

Go to www.comparethevalue.com and look at my Harmony 1310. It compares with any Gibson archtop and much better than a Hofner. Made around 1955, it sings and has a carved top...

Epiphone G 400 vs G 400 Custom

First of all are these good guitars? and second, is there any difference between the two besides the custom having 3 humbuckers?

Re: Epiphone G 400 vs G 400 Custom

forget that epi stuff and get a real gibson SG, get a 2nd hand one, they dont cost as much as you think.
Lee

Re: Epiphone G 400 vs G 400 Custom

Also, all my guitars need new strings and need to be tuned so bring a tuner and some strings.... Also, Should I buy a Fender or a Dean guitar? I got a beer for ya that I've been saving for 20 years....

guitar stand article

I can't get the guitar stand article to open. Any help?

Need Info Please!

Hi I posted a message early but it seems that I describe my guitars boddy style. The Head stock my look like an Expolrers but the body style is not the x-shape the you would normaly think. It kind has body style of a fender or a body of the epiphone fat model. the body has a FR and all the hardware is black, it had special lockings for the FR because Epiphone did a special year but I don't know what year that was. So if anyone can help I that would be really nice of you. Thank you for takin your time reading this message.

Re: Need Info Please!

kinda sounds like a kramer but i couldnt tell ya,sorry. Trevor

baby bison bass

I'm interested in a particular factory finish in saw on a Baby Bison Bass back in the early 70s. As best I can remember it was sort of a frosted purple-pink-natural sunburst. I know it sounds like hell, but it was beautiful. I need to get some photos of this so I can refinish my guitar. Can you help?

HELP!!! IM STUPID!!!

ok. so, i'm a newer guitar player. i've only been playing about a year and i just got my first gig amp. can somebody tell me what reverb and all that stuff is. and can someone also tell me how a foot switch works and how to turn the distortion on because i dont see a button. i have a 'peavey bandit 112' if that helps any...thanks.

Re: HELP!!! IM STUPID!!!

112 is a great gigging amp, one of the best around for all round sound, it aint no marshall but it can do a fair impression, it has a very good clean sound too, you have reverb in your case spring reverb, it adds a little tight echo effect, sound you get in an empty room, i never use it live but sounds ok when using as a practice amp, you have 2 channels, clean and distorted, the footswitch flips between the 2 channels, set your amp up for the amount of distortion by turning the 'gain' knob around. i think you have bass, mid, and treb for your amp tone, as far as i remember the bandit is an 80 watt output (plenty for club pub gigs) through a single speaker, and is a transistor amp with a valve preamp, which means your distortion channel will go through the vavle preamp but the clean will just use the tranistor preamp, in other words you get a great little amp for the money.

You have patience... I would have told him to read the manual....

never mind the BULLOCKS, heres a quiz.

a bullock is about to plough a field, the field is 100 metres long, and 25 metres wide, with each step the bullock takes it moves forward 1 metre, the plough itself is 2.5 meters wide, if the bull started in the bottom left corner, and exits at the top right corner, how many hoof prints will be left in the field after it is ploughed??
it is the european type bullock with the standard 4 hoofs, not a custom with 5 hoofs and a gold bell, or a special with 3 hoofs and one eye.

any answers???

NorMa guitars

I think i have a norma semi hollow, i got it from a friend for free, and he said he got it for five bucks. the neck doesnt look entirely original though. it has two z type black pickups, a rotary switch to select between each part of the split coil, and a switch to select all the pickups. the neck inlay are N's and it has two f holes. if anyone has a guitar similar to this description, or has pictures of any normas (or other brands) that look like this, please email me at funkymunky87@hotmail.com

Pick Scratches On Body

I noticed the other day I have a few light to medium scratches of the body of my lacquer bodied Strat while playing the other day. Does anyone have any tips as to how to remove these? Will the Fender Instrument Care Kit that boasts "will remove sweat stains, oil, and light scratches" do the trick? HELP NEEDED, PLEASE!

Re: Pick Scratches On Body

Jesus man dont cry over a few scratches, its only a fender, anywyas, yes depending on how well you buff it and shit that kit will work, i use it for the belt scratches on the back of my 85 charvel when i show it off at guitars shows. Trevor

Re: Pick Scratches On Body

all those scratches add character, take a look at SRV's strat, or Rory Gallagher's.
