sg bass copy

I recently purchased an SG bass replica in the UK and am interseted in finding out what make it is as there are no emblems on it. The bass itself has a single pick-up and was made in Japan. If anyone has more informaton, please e-mail me.

Re: sg bass copy

Its most likely a Copy without a name, like james hetfields flying v, nobody knows what make it is, its just a copy he has layin around, and a damn good one at that.

Re: sg bass copy

if its made in Japan it will be a good copy, if it looks old it could be a tokai, i think those SG basses were called EB3's and there were 2 types, a long and a short scale neck, EB3's were used a lot in the 70's, didnt jack bruce used to use one? without a brandname it will be very difficult to get info on.

Lee question

Lee i noticed you have good sources for guitars, do you have any other sites besides music123, musicians friend, ed romans, and sweetwater
if so please send them for me, Trevor

Re: Lee question

im not in the US trvor, im in London UK, to buy guitars i always use Loot.com, but that is a UK website, i buy a bit from Ebay mostly parts, but i find that to be quite expensive, i usualy sell on there, ive just got a jap '62 reissue strat, im going to break it up and sell it seperatly on there, a brilliant source for tab is http://www.guitarsrule.com
for lessons i use http://www.guitarknowledgenet.com/
most of the other sites i use are UK specific.

I too have a question for Lee...or anyone else who may know

Whats the deal with the "Faded" line of Gibson guitars? Are they so cheap because they sound like crap or are they so cheap because they look like crap?

How to they match up against Epiphone?

Because heres my thing, i was going for a Epi Les Paul Standard when i saw these, i dont care much about the look because i could very easily paint it myself, i have the proper tools.

Re: I too have a question for Lee...or anyone else who may know

Nothing is really different unless you play, they sound the same with the same hardware and everything, but the faded series is much lighter, i dont know why they are so cheap but a faded v plays like the reissues do maybe better and the faded is extremly light, i mean so light i could easily balance it on my pinky no problem, but otherwise they are the same, i want to buy oen but no money so i cant.

Re: I too have a question for Lee...or anyone else who may know

All the faded models are different, i recently sold a LP special double cutaway in cherry, it was a 1990 model, and here are the differences on that model, the faded model has: narrower headstock, the 'Gibson logo' is a gold transfer on the faded on mine it was pearloid inlay standard type, the scratchplate was one ply on the faded on mine it was 3 ply, the body on the faded was 2/3 the thickness of mine hence the weight difference and of course it has no cellulose coating, looks like somes taken a palm sander to it, looks rubbish. you will find on all the faded models there are differences to the originals, all the faded models have dot markers on the neck, you wont find a LP standard in this range, i think they only do a SG special, A LP special DC and SC, And a Flying V.
You should just find the money and go for the LP standard you want, beg borrow or steal it. someone will probably try and rip the arse out of this post, but there it is, i believe it to be true to the best of my knowledge.

And people say Epiphone Les Pauls are "fake Les Pauls"...sounds to me like these muthafuckers are the fakes.

And is it just me or is it INSANE that the Gibson Standard is 4 times the price of the Epi....i mean c'mmon is it really THAT Much better!?

and are epiphones LPs smaller then the gibsons or are they pretty much an exact copy?

Re: I too have a question for Lee...or anyone else who may know

i have to say in all honesty, the Gibsons are better, i always look at buying guitars as an investment, but you need to follow some basic rules, always get the most wanted model, in your case, a LP standard, that is the most popular model, always get a standard 'standard' model, in other words if they bring out an electric blue one off model with active pickups and you fall in love with it, i would avoid it, in 2 years time it will look naff and no-one will want it, always go for a colour that everybody wants, the old sunburst colours are always good sellers, and buy it 2nd hand, then you pay less and in 2 years if you decide to sell you will always get your money back plus more. keep it in original condition, if you do decide to change the pickups, keep the old ones to put back on when you sell it. so invest your $1000 dollars in a good 2nd hand gibson les paul, there is nothing like it, the epis dont match up, neither do the tokais or any other copy, the gibsons always cut through, if there is nothing that can touch these guitars, so get the money together and go buy one and stop talking about it.

Marshall Amp Settings

I just bought a JCM800 1960 Cab and I am having trouble with cab settings as far as mono/stereo set ups - don't know what ohm I should be at - does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Marshall Amp Settings

: I just bought a JCM800 1960 Cab and I am having trouble with cab settings as far as mono/stereo set ups - don't know what ohm I should be at - does anyone have any suggestions?

if you arent using rack gear use mono always and the 16 ohm socket on the cab. for the head use 8 ohms for 1 cab and 16 for 2 cabs.

Re: Marshall Amp Settings

Your cab shouldn't be set at less than 4 Ohms, any lower and you could blow your valve head. If you're using a single 4 x 12 celestion cabinet, 8 to 16 Ohms is fine. If you're using 2 cabinets, use the mono settings on your speaker and set it to 8 Ohms for both cabs. 4 cabs is your maximum output as they each take an input of 4 Ohms. Good Luck and remember dont set your cab below 4 Ohms.

Jay Turser

I've been seeing a brand around that I haven't seen before, Jay Turser. Do any of you know about it and if so, what's the quality like?

Re: Jay Turser

Jay puts out a nice guitar. I have a few and they are worth the money. They are a mid-level quality in the electronics and a higher level in the body. I have replaced the electronics and they are awesome. I have a vine neck Les Paul copy that I replaced the pickups with a set of Ducans and it screams. The Org. pickups wern't that bad and sounded pretty good. A set neck, beautiful wood.... a good deal... Look on Ebay for the best deals.
: I've been seeing a brand around that I haven't seen before, Jay Turser. Do any of you know about it and if so, what's the quality like?

Re: Jay Turser

Cheap Chinese guitars, I say cheap, but not in quality, but price. I have a JT 200 Les Paul knock off, while the electronics needed an upgrade (I slapped in a couple of DiMarzio', and a new 3 position switch) I usually tinker with any non-vintage guitar I get.

The whole guitar itself is very nice!!! Set neck, beautiful gloss translucent purple finish, bound body and neck, and plays like a dream!!! All this for less than $150!!!

I think for the price you cannot beat these guitars (although I can only comment on the one I have).
I like it because I can tinker with it and not have to worry much about resale (the pickups are worth as much as as I paid for the platform).

Hope this helps you.

Strat Squire Serial Number

I just got a used Strat Squire and was wondering the approx year made and possibly the value. The serial # is CN211914. Any info would be great. Thanks in advance.

Re: Strat Squire Serial Number

CN usualy denotes its chinese, and any chinese start is worth about as much a takeout set meal for 4.
year of manufacture isnt an issue, you probably have at best a $70 guitar.

Re: Strat question for anybody and everybody

Re: Strat question for anybody and everybody

hey dude.. i've got a mexican strat (since i'm mexican...lol)... and it sounds really great!... well i have to say that i replaced the original strat pick ups for a kinman set... and it sounds fucking great.... i have heard that the only think u need to change on a mexican strat (for those pro-guitar players)are the pick ups... I don't mean the standard pick ups worth nothing... but there are lot pickups better than fender standard... even the neck is made on the states... it says made in mexico... but they come from the u.s.a... wood is the same (aliso)(btw..here in mexico we've got some of the best woods around!...)... but if you are interested in money more than on a guitar... i will say to you that here in mexico... a mexican standar strat is around $450 - &650 usd... add $50 if you want the sunburst color... but as always... for more info about that... check out the www.fender.com site... go to global and then fender en español.... there is a .pdf with all the prices for a strat...tele...etc... guitars. laterz amigo.... (p.s. a mexican standar stratocaster is a lot ... lot better than those made on china,korea or japan... ;) no offense lee.... but that's the way it is..... SEE YA ALL!...

I have a Gibson Explorer which i won in a radio contest.
It was owned by The Edge from U2 and I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of where I could go to have it valued?

Thanks if you can help.

Anyways, though i dont know where you can go to have it valued, its the same price as any other new explorer, bout 800 in US. now add the weirdo pickgaurd which i could find for bout 20 bucks at a custom online store and you got yourself a 820 dollar guitar. are you trying to sell it?

Re: Having my guitar appraised

did he actualy play it? looks like a promo thing, did the tour when they brought out the best of CD? i think you would need proof that he actualy owned it otherwise like trevor says its an $800 guitar with a $20 scratchplate which i think would devalue it by $20 making it a $780 guitar.

Re: Having my guitar appraised

Thank you lee, and if your sellin it im lookin for one so give me a price.

Re: Having my guitar appraised

It belonged to The Edge which I have proof of from Universal Records. I have authenticity papers which came with the guitar stating it was the Edge's guitar. The band gave it away as a prize to promote their Best of album. I also won a trip to Dublin to stay in their hotel.

Thanks for your comments, but I am still wondering where I can find out where I could have such a piece of rock memorabilia appraised?

It is the real thing, pardon the pun, and Im not really trying to defend that because I know it is. Im just asking advice on where I could have it valued...

Re: bass

Suggestios:
(1)Use a noise gate,I like the Boss NS-2
(2)The bass signal is a Looong signal!At sound check stand approx. 15-20ft. from amp.You might want to cut out some bass and add more mid-range.

A common mistake is to turn up volume when the bass gets washed out by guitars and cymbles.Instead check your mids!Cuz not enough mid and too much bass signal equals "mush".More mid-range will give more clarity.

Hope this helps,
