Try ebay.com

I got a wonderful used Norman B-20 for a couple of hundred dollars c/w new hardshell case and pickup.

There are also some great Martins and Gibsons to be obtained there too.

It depends on how much money that you wish to spend, but I have had 100% success with honsty, and quality, etc. on ebay.

Although I recommend 1980 and older Gibsons, I am not as satisfied with the quality of the sound in the newer ones. It many be just my gut feeling, but I don't think that they are getting the high quality woods that they used to get in years past.

Martins continue to be great guitars.

Happy guitar hunting and good luck:o)

Acoustic Guitar Strings

Hello,

I own a YAMAHA APX4A (acoustic) guitar and since now I have been using .10 and .11 strings. I was thinking of using a set of .12.
Do you think that this may damage the fret of my guitar or something else ??
Thank you.

Re: Acoustic Guitar Strings

I don't see how they could damage the guitar as 12's are still kinda light/medium strings for an acoustic, so go for it.

Re: Acoustic Guitar Strings

Hi:

I agree that 12 are still light strings and shouldn't hurt a thing; and you will gain a bit more volume.

My concern would be more related to what weight strings were on your guitar when it was last set up. But if you only go up to 12s it shouldn't make very much difference.

I also don't know wht you call "cheap" but very good quality handmade guitars are Norman, Sea Gull, and Art & Luthier guitars made in rural Quebec. They aren't great on appearance,(very plain), but great sound and great action at a reasonable price, and with solid 800 year old cedar and spruce tops.

Re: Does anyone know were i can get a good guitar for cheap??

Hi,

We can offer you good guitars - both acoustic and electric at cheap prices, pls let me know your choice and address.

1991 Gibson Les Paul- I need some info

I'm looking for some information on my guitar. I have a 1991 Gibson Les Paul (first 2 numbers of serial are 91*********; bought Brand new from Mr. Gruhn himself). This one is different. Gold Hardware, Humbucker-single-humbucker, a 5-way switch and a 2 way switch. 1 Volume knob, 1 one Tone knob. Cherry Sunburst black fret board. Seems to have a Les Paul Junior Body, "Les Paul Model" Written on the top. No mother of pearl inlay on the outside. Much Lighter than a Standard. I was told it was a prototype. If anyone has any info, please email me.

Re: 1991 Gibson Les Paul- I need some info

Mr. Gruhn should be able to tell you what model it is and what year it is. You have not read the date code properly.

Re: 1991 Gibson Les Paul- I need some info

later Gibsons date first and fifth # of serial number

1991 Gibson Les Paul- I need some info

I own a 1991 Les Paul Standard that I bought in a consignment shop in Columbus, Ohio in 2001. The ID# is 93191351...1st. and 5th. give me the 1991 and the 319 = Nov. 15. But according to Bluebook the last three digits should be in the 500+ range not the 351 as it's stamped. The guitar has a Natural Maple top and gold hardware. Can someone explain the last three digits to me??? Bill

"sloid-state is bad." Not Always True!!!!

I logged onto this site and noticed a comment that claimed that Solid-State amps sound bad. Ah Ha!!!! Touche!! That is somewhat true, but not completely. I have a Fender Stage 100. It is completely solid-state, and it sounds fantastic. Yes, I think tube amps for the most part sound better than solid-state, but I also believe that the Fender Stage 100 is part of a very small handful of solid-state amps that sound really good.

Help me with my epiphone les paul studio!!

One of my pickups is failing or something, when i switch to rythm i get a light, shitty sound what do I do?

Re: Help me with my epiphone les paul studio!!

Make sure the pickup is close enough to the strings. If thats not it, you may have a dead coil on that pickup or a wiring problem that needs to be checked by a tech.
