Humbucker Installation

I need to know how to put a DiMarzio Super Distortion Pickup into an Ibanez AXS32 bridge.

Re: Humbucker Installation

Have you tried going to Dimarzio's website for a wiring diagram? That would probably be the biggest help for you.

turtleshell guitar and Thomas Guitars

My sister has inheritted a collection of guitars made by my uncle Thomas, a well known high end electric guitar maker in the 50's-70's. Among these guitars is one we assume is not made by him, a turtle shell guitar. I saw one of these at the Liverpool museum website that was confiscated because turtles are non a classified endangered species. We are wondering how to go about finding out how much these are all worth, what we need to do to try and get a collection together that can tour museums. A couple of other guitars in the collection are "Maltese Crosses", and a double guitar modeled after Yoko Ono, has hair and everything, that was made for John Lennon as a gift, but never picked up!

Noisy volume control on Marshall with CD input

My 80 watt Marshall has a CD input which is very useful, but when you have tunes playing thru it, and you change the volume via the volume control knob on the master channel, the sound goes fuzzy, only for a seccond, but its annoying.

I don't imagine things> Design fault?

thanks for any ideas Georgi

PS anyone seen the G3 Satriani tour on at the mo? Its gonna be amazing.

Beginner Guitar

I'm just looking for recomendations on a low priced beginner guitar. Looking for s best buy not more than $150.00

Re: Beginner Guitar

Go to www.musicyo.com I've personally bought several of their Kramer line and feel that I've definately gotten my money's worth. I bought a Baretta for under $200 that plays just as fast and sounds just as good as $600 to $800 Jacksons.

Alverez #5024

I have a '76 Dove copy that's in pretty bad shape but, I think it's worth saving. Is it?

Re: Alverez #5024

I too have a Alv. dove and it's ok... I also have a "real" Gibson Dove that sounds better than any other acoustic I have ever played. You can get a good used Alv. dove for around $300 on Ebay or I'll sell ya mine so if you need to put in more than $200 to fix it, give it up..

Re: 5 th caprice

Go rent the movie crossroads (NOT that like '97 Brittney Spears Piece of shit...the one w/ Ralph Macchio (yeah, the Karate Kid... from 1984 or '85 hehe thats the year I was born...:) that movie is about a kid name Eugene Martone (Macchio...) finding an oooold big time blues man (Willey Brown/Blind Dog Fulton) & Eugene is trying to get into the blues scene, so willy brown offers to teach him a "Lost song" by Robert Johnson if he can get him out of his Nursing home & down to Fulton's point...his' piece of land that he owns in Mississippi...but Brown Sold his soul to the Devil just like his Friend Robert Johnson to get that magic Talent...so the ending scene of that movie...the go to "The Crossroads" which in Blue myth & legend is the place where people had to sell their sould to the devil for Music talent...and the ending scene is a Guitar Duel (in that movie the Devil..."Scratch" or "Legbur"...calls it "Cuttin' Heads"; it's like a compition) it was Ralph Macchio (who actually played Slide through the most of the sceme...i've been told either Stevie Ray Vaughn or Ry Cooder played Eugene's part in the movie) VS (believe it or not...) Steve Vai...Steve Fuckin' Vai, & it was actually him on screen, not actor or anything...& Via dominated most of the duel until the ending cut...Via played like a Rendidion of like a verry crappy Eddie VanHalen "Eruption"...then he started to celebrate like he won the kid's soul...camra goes to his face, then the Devil's face & his shit eating grin & laugh...& then Macchio's Character out of nowhere starts playing 5th caprice of Paganini w/ some overdrive & distortion (sound like he was playing it into like a tube screamer or somethin') on a Japanese Fender Strat (1983 was the year before Fender started calling it Squier...I have an ooooold mid-80's Squier strat, & it said squir (in small letters) by Fender (huge letters; looks like a fender strat...)...but played the 5th Paganini perfectly, camera went back to Steve Vai (who i think is who actually recorded the track for thesound track)...Vai started like 1/2 way through, and the Ibanez (or back then he might have used Kramer...i don't know) did not have enough frets to hit the ending note for the solo, and he broke a string trying to copy that note...but it can be downloaded (movie & shit can be too...) as Steve Vai - Eugene's Trick Bag, it'll play the whole head cutting duel & then the ending Classical...it was poetic justice right after Via started celebrating to hear Macchio start playing the classical solo...& the camera stays on him for a minute...& you watch him wipe that grin right off his face...his face goes from ["Hell Yeah!; knew it"] to [...uuuuh oh, whoah, what the fuck?!?...ooooh Shit]

Opinion needed

Heres how it goes down....i want a Les Paul...and i dont feel like spending well over a grand on a Gibson studio because personally i think they look like trash, it looks like a baby guitar to me when next to a higher priced les paul. Anyway, i was looking at the Epiphone les paul Custom, tried it out...and its a nice guitar, i'll give credit where its due. But i also tried out the ESP/LTD EC-1000, les paul copy...it looks a little more "evil" if you will but they both pretty much look the same in the long run....heres the thing...the pickups on the epi are good for stock, but me, like many of you, im a EMG kinda guy...now the EC1000 comes with a EMG 81 active set...i thought that was pretty sick...which made me lean towards it a little more....but when it comes down to it...they match out pretty evenly...

EC has active 81 set
Epi has an extra tone

Epi costs about 200 bucks cheaper (but since i would replace the stock pickups with active EMGs anyway it'll still cost around the same)

they both have set necks

the EC 1000 has "the new Earvana system" for perfect intonation up and down the neck,and Grover machine heads.

My main beef with the Epi is the black and gold looks a little too "formal" for me...it reminds of Lucille....dont get me wrong, BB King rocks and so does his guitar...but its jut not my style.

As where the EC 1000 gets me in the department that i've heard both good and bad things about ESP...and how alot of artists only use thier intstruments because they're paid to...so idunno....its like trying to decide which nut to cut off here...haha

just lookin for an opinion here...which one would you buy?

(ec 1000 http://www.music123.com/ESP-EC1000-i16978.music)

(epi les paul custom http://www.music123.com/Epiphone-Les-Paul-Custom-i30065.music)

check out the links for more info

Re: Opinion needed

Personally, I would go for the Epi. Why? Because if you would love to have a real Les Paul but can't afford it, the Epi is the closest thing to it without the price. They sound good and perform great, live and in the studio. I have never been a big fan of ESP, they never impressed me much; tone, quality, craftsmanship, they never did it for me. But Epi's have come a long way recently, they are great guitars. But, YOU buy what YOU enjoy playing the most.

Yeah i've decided to go with the Epi Custom...simply because the ESP is pretty much limited to metal...not great for a clean tone.

Thanks alot

Re: Opinion needed

3 words: TOKAI LOVE ROCK

Re: Opinion needed

go to the forum link, the boys will point you in the right direction, during the attack on pearl harbour it was commonly misreported that the jap pilots used to cry 'Tora Tora Tora' , what they in fact were screaming was 'Tokai Tokai Tokai' . Even back at the eve of the battle of the pacific the japs were bigging the tokai factory up, Tokai Tokai Tokai'.

they look awesome, the new 2004 models have changed, they look exactly like the ESP copy i was interested in rather than the real les pauls. only problem is its gonna be a bitch to get on in my area, im gonna go with the epi, i can play it at the guitar store and really get a feel of it. thanks anyway man.

Both the Jackson and BC Rich Vs have tremelos...they're a bit pricy though

Re: Question for Lee and others

I played an epi flying V and it was a very good guitar, one of those korona ones, it look very good too, nice natural wood with a white scratch plate, the epi pickups are a lot better than they used to be, i bet you could get a 2nd hand one of those for around $450, what kind of trem system are you putting on it?

Re: Question for Lee and others

I have an old khaler trem system and i bought a floyd rose a while back for my project guitar but i dont have the money to make the project guitar so im doin it with any v i can get (gibson style though), im gunna have a buddy sand it down and repaint it and take off the name and all that so nobody gets all cherry pickin with me bout how my guitar is a sucky brand and all, then maybe ill sell it to fund my other guitar project, dunno, we'll see.

Yeah you're right dude...its just not the same...plus it'd be alot less fuckin around with the bar

Re: Speaking of Tremelos

If you are looking for the dive-bomb type of effect, they won't do it very well. I have the original Digitech Whammy and I love it. I use it for spacial type effects, mainly the "up 1 or 2 octave" setting, I rarely use the harmony effects. I only use one, maybe two notes at a time with it though, it gets sloppy when you add more notes to a chord. If you like U2, the Edge uses the effect quite a bit, it's all over the "PoP" record. Give it a try, you might like it.
