Electric Acustic?

I am looking for a good first time guitar, although I want it to be something that I will still enjoy when I am practiced. I am thinking about an electric acustic. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks

Re: Electric Acustic?

How about a Taylor 314ce? I think you would be happy with that for a long, long time.

The Great Jimi isn't dead!!!

The Great Jimi isn't dead!!!

Re: The Great Jimi isn't dead!!!

He should be, he was crap!!!. Love Bob

I heard he choked on his own puke---->

Isn't that a great way to go?

: The Great Jimi isn't dead!!!

Wonder what he ate for his last meal, and if he fully chewed his food before swallowing

Especially if it killed him when he puked it up, must have been some nasty meal to kill ya. My frienf billy once ate bad bologna and puked it through his nose on the bus and we all laughed and made fun of him, of course we didn't think he could die from this, was everyone busy laughing and ranking on jimi for puking and didn't notice he was choking ?

ZZ Top Clip

Does anyone know where i could buy something for my belt to make the guitar spin... Ya know like ZZ Top? or do they just do somethin with their belts

Re: ZZ Top Clip

: Does anyone know where i could buy something for my belt to make the guitar spin... Ya know like ZZ Top? or do they just do somethin with their belts

Yank the pulley off the swing or your air conditioner and bolt to the back of your guitar. Bolt the other end to your belt. Tighten your belt.
I'M JUST WONDERING WHY YOU WOULD WANT TO DO THAT.

Re: ZZ Top Clip

: Does anyone know where i could buy something for my belt to make the guitar spin... Ya know like ZZ Top? or do they just do somethin with their belts

I don't know about ZZ top, but I was an 80s guitar player and knew of a kit that was sold called "Spinz".
This was a mount that could be mounted on the back of the guitar that attached to a special belt that the plug went into. The biggest problem with this was that it needed to be mounted in the center of the guitar so it would smoothly spin and come back to playing position. This usually took some trial and error and allways resulted in mounting it very close if not inplace of the neck plate. I have seen a couple of these done and on both the mount needed to be moved a couple of times to get it right resulting in multiple mount holes. I guess it is hard to judge the spinning center of the guitar. I still have an old Vantage that had this done. I really don't need to spin it, but the belt mount is easier on your shoulders and gives you more freedom moving around.
Good luck,

Tuning a guitar with a tremolo, please help an amateur !

Hello guitar player anywhere,
I'm an amateur guitar player trying to tune a guitar with a tremolo!
I get the E string in tune with my piano and then tune the guitar in the usual way, but by doing so the whole tremolo block rises and as a result the low E is out of tune again. Repeating the procedure only makes the tremolo block rise to a very acute and incredibly stupid looking angle.
I can find no way to lock the tremolo in place or think of an other trick to keep the tremolo in place while tuning.

please help!

Re: Tuning a guitar with a tremolo, please help an amateur !

Hi, i had the same problem when i first replaced my floyd rose tremolo's strings. In the back of the guitar's body, you must have springs. You have to adjust them. To replace the springs, i recommend to use a 9V battery. Before doing anything, check this web sites, they have a lot of information. Good luck.

Sorry. I'm the one who wrote the answer. When i said: "To replace the springs, I recommend..." i meant "To replace the STRINGS, I recommend...".
Good Luck

MARSHALL AVT100

HEY im going to buy a marshall avt100 but i just wanted to know something: IS IT GOOD?

Re: MARSHALL AVT100

I recently bought a new marshall avt 150 and for value for money it is the best marshall amp i have used. Of course if you can afford a better amp try and get a mesa boogie as they are the best amps going around at the moment. Still if you can't then the AVT are pretty good. Alot of artists I know use them for gigs because they sound good and if they get smashed around a bit they don't cost much to repair or even replace. If you want to hear one then go to my bands website at www.geocities.com/broken_alliance and click on the songs link. The first 3 songs listed all have links to our songs in which you can hear a clean tone, and distorion.

Re: MARSHALL AVT100

I own a valvestate 2000 avt 100 and it rocks like a m*****f***er. The 2nd overdrive channel really brings out the valve harmonics. Thats what really sold me on the amp.

Are Tokai Les Paul reproductions were sold in the USA?

I was wondering if Tokai Les Paul reproductions were sold in the USA? Would this make a good thread for the discussion group?
I have just bought one which was rather good value and I have set up these two web sites so guitarists may be informed and comment.

Roland Gr33 effects pedals

I recntly started to play synth guitar. I use a godin nylon string. Im starting to get more into lead guitar now more than ever. I have no ideas on what kind of external effects pedals to look into, or what to do. I'd like to rig up something creative to play through the gr33.
