Re: Fender cybertwin

Hello sweden. Check out patchwizard.com for all the settings you will ever need to sound like your heros. I just got my cybertwin head it is very neat. There is one tiny problem however what if you dont wont to sound like your favorite guitarist. I will keep you posted on how I get through this dilemma of forging my own identity with this new piece of gear. I do remain hopeful. Any suggestions?

mess of preamps...

I'm trying to get my new configuration for my gear since i've bought my new H&K tube 100 head. I would be very happy if i could use the amp's FX loop (I can bypass and mix it completely from the amp)connecting my zoom gfx-8 in it but putting together the 2 preamps noises and feedbacks cover everything. Is there a way I cannot see? Please help me...
If I had a gfx-4,could i solve this problem using the active-passive switch?
The connection I'm trying to obtain is:

_guitar
_tube amp input
_fx loop send
_gfx input
_gfx mono out
_fx loop return.

it's simple.no other stuff for the moment.but also the head's manual says that effect processors featuring integrated preamps do not allow direct access to the fx loop,since the signal actually runs through 2 preamps.
IS THIS WRONG?HAS THE GFX-8 AN INTEGRATED PREAMP?IS THIS THE PROBLEM?CAN THE GFX-4 SOLVE THIS PROBLEM WITH THE ACTIVE-NORMAL SWITCH?
Please answer me cause i'm going crazy...
thanks a lot...

marshall jcm channel switchin'

I wanna buy a marshall jcm 800 2203 or 2204. They have great tone, but only one channel. so can i stick an A/B box on it, ya know one line in high gain and one in low? I'm pretty sure thats what metallica did on the ride the lightning album? is that possible?

Re: marshall jcm channel switchin'

I've got a 2204; the best option I've found (since I hate the sound an overdrive or distortion pedal produces, totally spoiling the Marshall tone) is to stick any distortion pedal in front of the amp thru the "high" input and just use it as a volume control with absolutely no distortion. I suppose you can accomplish the same thing with a volume pedal. Even better if your pedal has EQ settings, which gives more options as far as tweaking your tone. Basically you end up hitting the preamp tubes harder, getting rid of a need for a mod or the fake distortion of a pedal. Works for me, though I play punk and maybe that's not your bag.

1962 reissue japan made stratocaster

i bought a japanese fender strat in 1988 that was supposed to be a 1962 reissue with serial number e929099 three color sunburst. the guitar has a maple neck with a MAPLE FINGERBOARD and 62 strats came with rosewood fingerboards any info i could get would be great thanks alot scott

Re: 1962 reissue japan made stratocaster

Sounds like A)The neck is not original, and maybe a '50s reissue neck (or '67 or '68 R.I. possibly) or B)possibly this kind of neck was a custom order/special option or C)this guitar is not a '62 r.i. at all, maybe a '67 or '68 reissue...Does the guitar have the smaller headstock with the "spaghetti FENDER logo", or does it have the larger headstock with the black or gold FENDER logo on it? Feel free to e-mail if you like...I've owned three Japan '62's and they've never had maple boards, only rosewood.

Les Paul 100

Realy old Les Paul possibly for sale

I have had a guitar since 1965. It was second hand and well used. I have been told it is an original Gibson Les paul. can anyone give me any information on getting it authenticated. I do not play and am interested in selling it.

Re: Realy old Les Paul possibly for sale

A picture would be a great help. If you have a digital cam email me one. Actually Les Pauls are rather easy to verify because pretty good records were kept on the solid body gibsons from that period. If you've had it since the 60's it could be a very valuable item. Several Les Paul models were made. Collector values vary depending on originality, model, condition, etc...etc... Just because your guitar is well played does not necessarily mean you have to give it away. Be careful with vintage dealers who offer you $$$ for your guitar. Remember these guys are in business. The serial # should be located on the back of the headstock. email me if you have any questions

Tablature-slide-question

When i tablature it says /7, what does it mean. I knowe it's a slipe, and I guess it's to the 7th fret, but where from?

Re: Tablature-slide-question

You are right about what it means and where you slide 'from' is up to you, if a note is already fretted on the string you ususlly just slide from there, if not then usually you just start from where your hand currently is (most convient way), or you might have to move up/down the neck and expermint till you get the 'right' sound... so I guess I typed all this just to say there is no 'rule' as to where you start from, and there are 'up' slides too.
