Re: kork ax1000g

Hi!
I also write it down. - It's also the fastest i think.
another problem: since 2 months i hate my AX1000G - the Distortion models sounds like saws - except the tube Overdrive, but this one has got too less of possible drive... If you've got a fine sound (like marshall...) please tell me the settings!!!!

thanks a lot.

Fender

Ok yesterday i was trying to learn the tablature for unforgiven 2 when i read then hammet uses a 'b-type' fender for the song to get his pulls on the b-string. Anyone who knows exactly what that is?

metallica and why we hate them

yes- a"b-type fender" is a type of guitar you use if you feel that you may have -somewhere along the way-turned into a wealthy upper class greedy little snob who no longer cares about anything but how many MORE millions of dollars you can get from poor working class peasents who - in your opinion- should probably be saving thier money for food and rent

that's not what it's about it's about metallica

so what does that have to do with their MUSIC ???which is what it's all about...who cares about the way they act or what the fuck they buy it's the quality of there music and any person who understands this is a true fan of music ...

Re: Fender

yeah napattak shut the hell up, we got no place for dickheads like you here. metallica have been bought out, not sold out, and anyone who thinks ootherwise has no idea about what actualy happens.

A b-bender is a device which sits in the body of the guitar, and when used it bends the b-string up a whole tone. it is usualy activated by a lever on the strap, so that you push down onthe neck and the b-string bends. they are very expensive, only look at one if your serios about country/blues playing

Re: Fender

Sorry, I don't have a follow up for a "b-type" fender, I know nothing of the sort. But there is still this comment out there that Metallica is so hated. This is not the case; Metallica is the best there is to offer. One must realize comments like this come from people who are both ignorant and stupid. DON'T GO TO THEIR SHOWS OR BUY ANY OF THEIR MERCHANDISE IF YOU CAN"T AFFORD IT, IDIOT! IF YOU HATE THEM SO, WHY WOULD YOU BRING IT UP? Sorry, this has turned more into a follow-up for this NapAttacK character.

pickups

the first pick up on my strat is a little loose. it wobbles. Is this going to effect anything?

Re: pickups

just take it off, strats are crap anyway. love Bob

Re: pickups

BOB , YOUR OBVIOUSLY A STUPID FUCKIN' ASHOLE. TWITCH WILL KICK YOUR ASS CUTTING HEADS ANYDAY.YOU NEED TO CRAWL BACK UNDER YOUR MOMMY'S TITIE AND START SUCKIN'IT JUST LIKE YOUR USED TO DOING.SO GO TO HELL PUNK ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: pickups

you tiny little man, i think you want to be twitch, is your own little life so boring, that you have to worship somebody else ? i guess he must be better at playing guitar than you (are you jealous). If you want to worship anyone, worship the true god of guitar "ME". love Bob

Sperzel tuners- Are they reversable?

Hi there,
Question about Sperzel (Trimlok) tuners. Does anyone know if they are reversable? Meaning can you swap the gear to the other side. I have one apart, and it appears they might be, but I want to know if anyone has done this, or if it can be done. Thanks in advance
~Ken

Re: Sperzel tuners- Are they reversable?

YES TEY ARE WITH SLIGT MODIFICATIONS TO THE HEADSTOCK, BUT WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO?

how to get heaviest sound?

What distortion box would give me the hardest sound.. I'm looking for slipknot, mudvayne, pantera sound?

Re: how to get heaviest sound?

try the visual sound "JECKYL AND HYDE" it has two channels and a midrange control to get that scooped sound. good luck

Re: how to get heaviest sound?

Dude.Save yourself a shit-load of money! Try the Ibanez Smash-box(SM-7)and tweak your amp.I LOVE MINE! Somtimes I use a Graphic e.q. pedal with it.
The Dan Electro Fab Tone has too much gain and volume for live playing.But in a controlled environment...it's
the MEANEST dist.box under $100. No bullshit!
Jeckyll and Hydes are very good,but kinda expensive.
I use a Twin Reverb...so my Smash-Box always kicks-butt!
My opinion

Fender Telecaster....any hope?

I am sick to death about my Tele. My own fault. It was fixed, and I broke it. I got a "Butterscotch" from a guy as payment for a job I did. For years, I loved playing rhythm on it. Couldn't play lead on it because of those skinny low frets and the heavily lacquered maple neck/fretboard. It has one of those ASAT PU's in rhe neck with the adjustable hex-nut pole-pieces. Never was crazy about the sound of that neck PU but I lived with it. Last summe I found a local luthier who said he could make me a new neck with a rosewood fretboard which I prefer. I also wanted a thicker neck with jumbo frets. Then I decided to have him refinish it as well. Last but not least, I ordered a set of Bill Lawrence PU's because I needed to stop the buzz and the Lawrences are very quiet. When I got the guitar back from the luthier (and the $500 invoice) I almost died. The neck was thick alright - more like a baseball bat. Couldn't even get a capo on it. The luthier refused to do any more for me unless I paid more money. So, I put the old neck back on and the original PU's back in thinking all would be well. Wrong. The guitar absolutely sucks. The high E string is inaudible. It feels and sounds terrible. One thing I am not sure of and that is the mounting of the bridge PU to the bridge-plate. I'm told that this is a critical issue in the sound of a Tele. I re-mounted the original PU to the plate using machine screws and nuts - no rubber bushings as stand-offs, just bolted it tight. The height seems okay, but the high E string is totally inaudible and the overall sound is ungodly tinny. HELP!! Should I just burn this thing?

F Spacing Pickups

I know what F Spacing pickups are and why they are used. But does anyone know what the measuring specs. are? I'm trying to find out what the difference is (inches) between poles on a Regular Spacing and a F Spacing pickup.

Thanks

Re: F Spacing Pickups

: I know what F Spacing pickups are and why they are used. But does anyone know what the measuring specs. are? I'm trying to find out what the difference is (inches) between poles on a Regular Spacing and a F Spacing pickup.

F Spacing is for bridges that are 2.1 in. (53 mm) or larger. Most standard pickups are 2 in measuring across the poles pieces.

Teacher Instruction Software

Hey!

Anyone out there know what the best software is
to write music on the cleffs and also be able to
show chords on? I want to be able to set up my lessons,
tailored to each student, because sometimes books are
not available to me immediately. I would like to use
a software to set up my lesson each week and be able to
write down the melody for a student and also show them the chord fingerings.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Kare

Can I play rock with hollow body guitar?

I want to buy a new guitar and I have my eye on one ES-335 copy. I play mostly hardrock and some heavy stuff too but I don`t know how those hollow body electrics react to distortion. If somebody knows something about it then I would be pleased to get to know.

Re: Can I play rock with hollow body guitar?

you can play rock with any guitar,my man...:)

Re: Can I play rock with hollow body guitar?

Re: Can I play rock with hollow body guitar?

Yes! You have heard of Ted Nugent haven't you. Until Damn Yankees, Ted's instrument of choice was the Gibson Byrdland. A jazz guitar of all things. John Lennon's favorite guitar from the end of the Beatles until death was his Epiphone Casino. George Harrison had on as well. As did Keith Richards at one pint with the Stones. I suppose if I really thought about it I could think of many more rock muscians who utilize and or prefer the hollow body.
As for wanting to stop the feed back. Why on earthe would you do that? Feedback is your friend. Embrace it. Learn to utilize it. Jimi Hendrix and Ted Nugent both based early careers on that.

Re: Can I play rock with hollow body guitar?

Right on... also distortion != R&R.

Re: Can I play rock with hollow body guitar?

My name is Kevin, And I use a Epiphone Casino with a tube amp, and the sucker just wone stop feedbacking. What can i do?? WITHOUT SPENDING A BUNCH OF CASH.

Re: Can I play rock with hollow body guitar?

yeah she should sound allright. when you hard overdrive a hollow they sound pretty raunchy, but they feed back at relatively low levels, so ge yourself a 10-band eq or something of the like to control feedback

Re: Can I play rock with hollow body guitar?

sure but you have to plug the holes to stop the feed back a bit of gaffa does the trick

Re: Can I play rock with hollow body guitar?

I don't know, can you?

wich amp-marshall,mesa,or crate??

i'm gonna buy a half stack rig-any help on the differences or performance of mesa rectifiers,crate blue voodoo's, and marshalls would be appreciated...

Re: wich amp-marshall,mesa,or crate??

hey dude; wel im using rectifires for over 2 years now and they still amaze me; they are great and its sound as the best - i think you propably can't find something better i tried some marshalls (jcm900) and fender tonemasters but the mesa is the best of all the're quite expensive but the are worth it and crate sucks really hard enough? okay bye
: i'm gonna buy a half stack rig-any help on the differences or performance of mesa rectifiers,crate blue voodoo's, and marshalls would be appreciated...

Re: wich amp-marshall,mesa,or crate??

Definently Depends on budget, id say a solid state Crate Head and a blue voodoo would kick pretty much anythings ass. Especially that other guy who wrote a review

Mounting a Badass style bridge? Help!

Can anyone tell me how to install this Badass style bridge? It's one of the ones that string in from underneith the bridge so you don't have to have a thru-body bridge or a two-piece bridge and tailpiece. Anyway, I thought it'd be so simple, just bolt it on there. But there are two bolts and two other metal pieces that the bolts screw into, what are they for? I mean, the bridge would be too high off the body if I had them against it. What do I do?

Re: Mounting a Badass style bridge? Help!

have a similair wrap around bridge.. you have a set of bushings that are like nuts.. and the bolts which yeah are bolts.. you take a drill, a drill press is prefered because its a guaranted perpendicular whole.. and drill wholes that fit the bushings.. plop the bushings in.. MAKE SURE THEY DONT SLIDE OUT.. if they do your screwed and you need to fill the wholes.. you need a nice tight fit. and then you screw the bolts in and slide your bridge on.. look at a bronze series warlock or mockingbird they have a very similar setup as the wrap around badass bridge

Re: BOB THE NOB WHATS THAT ABOUT

Bob is a semi-literate, underachiever who has but one reason for living ... to reinforce the importance of marketing burst-proof condoms. If ever there was a reason for voluntary termination, this is it. Bob, do yourself and the rest of us a big favour. Curl up in your little corner and dream about growing a brain one day. Leave us ordinary, normal people who happen to love the guitar in all its forms, to pursue our discussions without your ill-informed, ego-maniac opinions. No-one cares about your boring little life, Bob. If you want to be real constructive, get a grade 6 spelling book and practise your English. Then when you develop some intellect and are actually able to write in langauge that the rest of the world can understand, we may extend a friendly invitation to you to participate. Meanwhile, get off our ass, man ...
