Guild D35

Hi,does anyone own one of these? Ive been after a nice Gibson J50 for a while, but Ive been advised to try and get one of these instead.Im told they record really well, having a bit more bass than the Gibson,although not as sweet a treble. Any comments would be gratefully received. Before you ask, its not easy to audition guitars either in stores [which I hate] or peoples homes, especially if you need it to record with !! Thanks to those who bother to reply,Brian

Re: Guild D35

I bought my D35 in Garland, Texas in 1974 while I was in college. I believe I paid $600.00 for it, but I truly cannot remember. At the time, Ronnie Dunn of Brokks and Dunn fame and I were playing together. These guitars were very popular for recording sessions in the 70's. I installed a El Gato piezo electric pickup under the bridge. This had an external pre-amp and a pin jack end the end of the strap peg. These acoustic pick-ups were made in Abilene by a local guitar store - Baca Music by Bernard Baca. My guitar is still near mint and the sound is unlike any new guitar you can find or at least that I have been able to find. The quality of Guild at the time was considered to be of the same standard as Martin or Gibson. If you can find one for sale, these are tremendous instruments and greatly under valued in my mind. However, I am prejudiced and mine is not for sale

Active EMGs on a Les Paul

I want to put Active EMGs on my Les Paul but i've heard i may have to get some work done to get the battery in there...is this true?

Re: Active EMGs on a Les Paul

All my guitars have some sort of EMG humbuckerr or pickup in them, i had EMG 81 60's installed on my Les Paul before i sold it and they didnt have any problem installing it, and if they did im sure it was just mounting the battery mount, ask lee tho i didnt do mine so i wouldnt know im just an EMG fan.

Bass type support for a solo guitarist

Would like to know if there is anything on the market similar to the bass pedal keyboard from years ago to support a solo guitar player.

Fender Stratocaster Loose Tremelo

I have a Fender Strat which I purchased new in the early 1980's. The tremelo arm has come loose. It works ok, but when you let it go it drops strait down which it never used to do. Is there a way to tighten it? I can't see anything obvious. The guitar stays in tune pretty well and I don't want to buggar anything up.

Re: Fender Stratocaster Loose Tremelo

Try taking the back plate off and replacing the trem springs in there, its relatively harmless and easy to do i had to do it to my LTD m-302 and it took a tops of 30 seconds

Re: Fender Stratocaster Loose Tremelo

Since you said it works ok, I wouldn't mess with the springs or anything in the back cavity. You want to stop the arm from swinging around, right?
There are 2 things you can try:
First is to get a spring that is 1/2 inch long or so and smaller than the diameter of the trem arm. Unscrew the arm, drop the spring in the hole, and replace the arm. Experiment with different springs to get right stiffness.
The other way to go is go to your local hardware store and get some Loc-tite or equivalent. Get the low or medium strength. Apply it to the threads on the trem arm. Use just a very small amount at first and replace the arm. If it's still too loose, just repeat the process (i.e. apply a little more, etc). What this stuff does is adds thickness to the threads making the thing tighter when it's screwed in.

Set of EMG 81 81 actives needed.

Lookin for a set of EMG 81 81 actives like kirk hammets usual get up. Need em to put in my LTD M-302 to replace the shitty HZ's. Thanks in advance.

guitar amps

does any one make an amp that is compatible to both acoustic and electric guitars

Re: guitar amps

all amps are compatible to both types of instrument, but to get a good sound you realy need an amp of each type, as far as im aware there is no amp that does both transistor with mid and top range speakers for accoustic and a valve with midrange dedicated guitat speaker for the electric.
you will have to buy one of each like the rest of us.

Fretboard treatment

I have a guitar with what looks like a slightly dry fretboard. What can I use on it?

Thanks

Re: Fretboard treatment

its unlikey that the rosewood has dried out, that wood will never dry up, but you can get the fretboard to look a little healthier by rubbing in some lemon oil, it will make it shiny and a little darker, but i doubt the wood will soak it up.
Lee

Re: Fretboard treatment

Are we talking rosewood for sure???
If its ebony you're better off with RAW linseed oil

Re: Fretboard treatment

: I have a guitar with what looks like a slightly dry fretboard. What can I use on it?

: Thanks
You can put lemon oil on it. I once used a fresh lemon and just squeezed it on the fretboard and it looks better.

Re: Japanese Fender Stratocaster

you have a great guitar there Liam, that 84-87 is a great era for the jap strats, i would say if its in mint condition, all original you should get around $700, stick it on ebay on a max listing with a $650 reserve i bet it will hit it. good luck.
