newbie: how to get specific sound

Hi there. I'v got opportunity to touch an electric guitar and its sound rather surprised me : it sounded like ordinary accoustic guitar. Well, it was plugged to an ampli directly, with no effects. So I asked myself, how to get Mike Oldfield-ish typical electric sound? It depends on guitar or effects? What effect can do that sound? Thanx helping a newbie.

Re: newbie: how to get specific sound

well i don't know what type of amp you use cause some amp's have a build in overdrive/distortion to give you already some extra sound as goes for a reverb.
But when you want some real effects like a flanger or a chorus you'l probably have to buy a fx panel.

I am trying to find out about the active guitar pickup

I want to place a jack hole in to my acoustic guitar, so i can plug it directly into the line in.

I was told that i need an avtive electronics for that that. I want only a volume regulator (without any equalizers and tone controllers).

Can anyone please tell me of any?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Mexican strat neck like American?

How much would i have to pay to get my mexican strat neck to play like an american. Can i get the neck to play like a les paul?

Re: Mexican strat neck like American?

The angles at the headstock and TOM bridge coupled with the 24.75" scale and neck/body angle will pretty much prevent the two from ever playing alike. There is also some difference introduces between the feel of a bolt-ont neck and that of a set-neck. Sorry dude.

Metallica Clean (one,sanitarium,harvester)

Always when Metallica paases the forum about wich gear they use and how to get their sound it's about the distrtion sound. After figuring that out (a long time ago) i'm still not surtain about their clean sound, any advice is welcome

Re: Metallica Clean (one,sanitarium,harvester)

ever since metallica used clean tones, it was always from a roland jc-120 for james, and an ada mp1 for kirk. Now, james uses the jc-120 head and triaxis live for clean tones. Kirk uses just the triaxis for his live clean tone. in the studio, they use many many amps for clean tones...hope this helps.

Re: Metallica Clean (one,sanitarium,harvester)

I got a ESP guitar with a Line 6 amp. What should i set the amp in order to acheive Metallica's clean sound like for Fade to black, one,etc.

Help with choosing my first guitar, please!!

Hey guys, u must be sick and tired of giving guitar advice to annoying, clueless newbies like me, but I really need your help! I have been playing on an accoustic for a while, and I've decided that it's finally time to proceed to the next level in the guitar world- electric. I'm probably willing to spend up to around $600 on a guitar alone-I don't want something dodgy, but I don't want something too expensive. I'm kinda lost when it comes to choosing guitars, and I don't want to be taken advantage of by dodgy salespeople who just want money. Does the model of the guitar greatly affect its sound? I want something versatile, good quality, and nice to look at at the same time. Any suggestions?

Re: Help with choosing my first guitar, please!!

Well it's mostly based upon the type of music your going to play, for example when your going to play hard rock/metal i advice to buy a guitar with two humbucker pickups like a gibson/ibanez/bc rich or jackson/esp (but they are a bit more expensive)
i've youre thinking a bit more pop like, i would try to find something like a fender or maybee a good squier (by fender). and yes the type of guitar is very important to the sound but something almost as important as the guitar is the amp/effects that you use. so i advice you to realy think about what you want before you buy anything (i can tell you it's fustrating to buy a guitar and after two weeks deciding it sucks ass)(i know)
bye!

Re: Help with choosing my first guitar, please!!

I like Ibanez Rg series. There are lots of good guitars.

Re: Does anybody know?

Hi Dennis and Joe! I know that the Lyon & Healy Co.
Who made George Washburn guitars had a line of brands
they made around 1883-1920? One of the models which was second only to the Washburn line was called American conservitory and made from student to semi pro model guitars and mandolins. Lyon & Healy made a line of these guitars in 1904 which was replaced by the "College" line till around 1908 when they returned to the Lakeside,Jupiter,and American Conservitory lines of student instruments.The post
1928 instruments were made by several other makers
Stewert,Regal,and others however some of the American
conservitory double neck models were made by Regal.
