What's it worth??

I have a Mexican made Fender Strat made in I believe 95. I think it is a Wayne's World model. Does that make it worth more or less? Anybody have an idea of what its worth - ballpark figure?

Problem with MT-2 pedal

I have an MT-2 pedal which does not switch on. I loaned it to someone who very possibly used the wrong voltage plug. What would be the best way to repair this?

Dead fret on Ibanez

I have a problem with my Ibanez RG440. At the 15th fret the string is pretty dead and if I bend at all I get no sound whatsoever. Any ideas?

Re: Dead fret on Ibanez

Which string? I would guess that if it isn't noting out anywhere above there or below there then you must have a low 15th fret. It should be noting at the 16th fret though. What you've described sounds unusual. I would imagine that you need either a fret replacement or fret dressing aroung it. Perhaps it is just too flat.

Re: Dead fret on Ibanez

is this a note that sounds briefly and then dies off real quick with no sustain? or does it not sound at all?

dead amp

I got a bp 15 that my friend gave to me because he fried it by trying to hook them up togther, he connected them by connecting them through the exit speaker jack, I already tryed replacing the fuse but no luck, is there any hope of this thing getting fixed for cheap?

Re: dead amp

i dont know what a bp15 amp is, but it sounds like it could be the output transformer, its usualy this if you mismatch speaker impedence. you should realy take it to a shop and get a tech to look at it.

Takamine Martin Lawsuit

I am trying to find information about the Takamine/Martin Lawsuit: when did it happen and what was it about? Who won? Neither Martin nor Takamine include any information in their histories: is there some kind of gag order, or are they both really embarassed about it, or is it all so well known that nobody seems to discuss it? Thanks for replies!

Peavey Amp Cutting Out

I have a 'peavey basic 40' bass amp and it cuts out during use. the only way to get it working is to move the Pre-gain knob to full which brings it back to life and then it works cuts out at any volume with any setting and when the amp is hot or cold.

ive taken the amp apart to look for loose connections but couldnt see there any way to fix it?

How can I make my own guitar with a low budget?


I am wanting to try and make my own guitar. I only have one problem. It is that I have to work with a low budget. I am 12 years old and I love playing the guitar but I want a Les Paul. That is one of the reasons I want to make guitars. I also need to buy parts for the guitar and tools to make it. I will devote lots of time to this project and hopefully it will take me far.


remember 2 things: low budget and i'm starting from scratch


Re: How can I make my own guitar with a low budget?

I think that it is great that you want to make your own guitar. You will learn about guitars and what makes one sound good. Low budget is relative. Your best bet might be to get a Martin guitar kit. They cost as little as $220, but for that money you will end up with a very nice instrument. They have a web site:

Good Luck and keep strumming!

Im looking for a good distortion pedal

i need a new distortion pedal to play some heavy metal stuff, right now i have a boss ds-1 distortion pedal and its just not doing it for me

Re: Im looking for a good distortion pedal

i normaly recomend the Pro Cat turbo rat, a fantastic pedal, but it may not be metal enough for you, ive played a Boss MT-2 metal zone, which has a 3 band EQ and will give you the sound you want.

Re: Im looking for a good distortion pedal

boss mt-2 metalzone all the way...f*cking great.

Re: Im looking for a good distortion pedal

A Messa Boogie V-Twin pre amp pedal has two channels of tube distortion and get some nice compression for defined chugging/sustain.

Re: Im looking for a good distortion pedal

or for the same price get yourself the MT-2 and a 2 week holiday in a 5 star hotel in vegas.

Re: Im looking for a good distortion pedal

: I suggest you get an effects pedal, The Digitech Rp 50, or any digitech model is good. It gives you a good range of sounds and you can also customize your own distortion, The Rp 50 is around 70$

Re: Im looking for a good distortion pedal

those things are ok on headphones and low volume but get very fizzy and suck the tone right out of your guitar at gigging volumes, if you want a distortion pedal then buy a distortion pedal not a cheap multi effects pedal.

no recording/phones out

I am thinking of buying an Ashdown Fallen Angel 60 combo but there is no recording output wich is the only thing puting me off this otherwise amazing amp. I know I can mic it but I want as little messing about as possible and also dont want to shell out loads of £££££££ on a mic that will give a good representation of the amp. So is there a signal transformer on the market or can anyone draw me up a circuit of something that will transform 'the cabinet ext out' into a lower power recording signal?

Mansfield Accoustic

I have an old Mansfield accoustic guitar that i've had since i was young. It's an AW 460 and it's still in pretty good condition. If anyone has any info on it's history or worth, i would greatly appreciate it. thanks.
