Thinner necks!

I got rather small hands and I feel in some parts it's hindering me! Are there any guitars that have thinner necks?

Re: Thinner necks!

: I got rather small hands and I feel in some parts it's hindering me! Are there any guitars that have thinner necks?

Most fender strats/teles have pretty thin necks, and so do their copies (mansfield and such). You can also try ESP, they have pretty thin necks, avoid ones with floyd rose locking system, the necks (to me) seems a bit wider than the rest (then again it might be just Jackson). Ibanez supposedly has super thin necks (RG series) but I've never personally tried one. Good luck hunting.

I have a catolog from Antigua Casa Sherry-Brener Ltd from around 1976 that has a list value of your guitar of $525. Now it should be worth much more than that.

I have a concert #1 and am searching for it's value as well. I payes $675 for mine in 1976.

martin guitar

my father left me a martin guitar when he passed away. I believe it is a 1969 it says d-35 256852 on the inside. It also has a hard case. Is there any value to this?

A Martin D-35 with that serial no. would put it in the late 60s. If it's a Brazilian rosewood D-35, in decent shape, it's probably worth somewhere in the $1,500 - $2,500 range. Go to the C.F. Martin Co. website, find a dealer or repair facility near you and let them see it.

Amp value??

I have an Earth Producer series amp I bought in 1975 new and want to sell it but have no idea of it's value. The head has 4 inputs, 2 under reverb effects channel, a graphic equalizer, and 2 under a normal channel. It is rated at 700 watts, has 2 15 inch speakers in a seperate cabinet. It looks and works as good as new. It has never been out of my home. No scratches, tears or wear marks. I think it is solid state. If it has any tubes I can't see them. On the reverb channel it has fuzz, rate, distort, reverb and depth.
If anyone can give me a clue as to what this is worth, I would greatly appreciate it.

1968 Gibson J-50

This guitar is in very good condition, any idea what it may be worth. I bought it new in 1968 and still have the bill of sale.

problem stringing fender stratocaster

hello i recently broke a string and when i went to replace them the bridge started rising a bit too high. i used the same fender strings i have before but when i go to tune the strings the bridge raises to an almost 45 degree angle. is my guitar messed up or am i doing something wrong. i know its different from before because i cant hold the whammy bar and play because the bar is angled to close to the body. please help me!

Re: problem stringing fender stratocaster

Your springs for the whammy bar are probable broken, if thats no it, then try and tighten the bridge screws

Ibanez

im thinking of buying an S series Ibanez, anyone know of any type to go for? ones to avoid? i want one with lots of switching and a trem bridge.
thanks

Re: Ibanez

A friend of mine has a S470 with 3 pickups (humbucker-single-humbucker) and a 5 way switch. The body is mahogany with a very slim profile & the neck is maple with a rosewood fretboard. It is a very nice, well made guitar. There is another model, the S370, that is identical but with only 2 humbuckers. Both are great.

Teakwood for electric guitar body

Dear All,
Is it possible to use teakwood for the body of electric guitar? (or at least for the top layer of the body?). What will be the consequences? (to the sound, sustain, etc). Any comment will be appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

goldtop deluxe

I have, what I believe to be a 1968 gibson goldtop deluxe. It plays great, but the finish has begun to possible oxidize where your right forearm rests. This guitar has been played, not in a case for the last 30+ yrs. The original bone keys began to strip, so I replaced them w/ Grover's. I did, however have to rout the holes a bit. I am curious as to what the approximate market value of this guit may be. I paid $1670.00 in 1999. Thanks for any ideas.

Cameo Bass

I have a Cameo Bass guitar. It looks just like a fender P bass copy, sunburst color one soapbar metal pick-up sounds great.

If anyone knows anything about these guitars please give me some information. I also have a 60's era hofner beatle bass. thank you .
