: I have a FG295s which is real similiar to the fg300. Exact same pickguard. Same headstock, bound neck , body, headstock, solid spruce top and more rare than the fg300. $350.

Hey Davy,

I just found one of these yesterday at a garage sale for $75. This thing sounds great and is in excellent condition. The pick guard is a bit loose on one end but other than that it's great. Just thought you'd like to know there are some of these out there.

I'm looking to sell mine. I bought it used from an old timer in Vallejo, CA in 1980 who said it was the best he ever owned. It is in very good condition - the pick guard has started to come up on one side but this is a minor repair. It has the pink, white and green floral design on the guard. The body has only one small (appx. 1/16") fleck out of the finish on the back. It is in the original hard shell case and it has a strap. The next is perfectly straight and I can pull it out of the case and not have to tune it after several months. I don't play it enough anymore to warrant keeping it. I'll part with her for $400. You pay the shipping. I can send you a digital image of it; let me know.

Fender DH-1 pick up, what's this?

Hi again. I see hot rodded fat Teles use the DH-1 humbucker pick up. HOw does it sound? It is really Fender, or it's related to some SDuncan or DiMarzio model. Anyone tried?

Thanks in advance!

Fernando

Re: Fender DH-1 pick up, what's this?

It seems it's the same as Bill Lawrence L-460,

wiring.. arrgh help.

okay, so I got this guitar from a friend. My brother said he could fix it up, no problem. It's just got one humbucker and one volume knob. I wanted a toggle switch so I could turn the pickup off completely in one position, have it stock in the middle, and run through a capacitor in the other position. Well, now I'm stuck with a guitar that doesn't send signal to the amp. can anyone lend advice at all?

Re: wiring.. arrgh help.

What kind of switch are you using?.

Dimarzio...Humbuckers...Noise...AAAAHHHH!

I need some serious advice. I have two Dimarzio humbuckers in a guitar of mine. One is an X2N and the other is a hybrid. I'm getting a seriously annoying hum. It seems the more gain I have the more hum as well. So I checked and rechecked all of my solder joints...still have hum. I re-soldered all of my joints...still have the hum. I ran an extra ground wire to my output jack, and grounded it to all ground contacts as well...still have the hum. I changed out the volume pot, to no avail. Finally, the only way I can lessen the hum was to re-wire each pickup so that the coils run parallel instead of in series. It lessens the hum but it's still there...it also lessens my output which I don't like. I even tried to wire the X2N directly to the output jack, to no avail. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm tired of pulling these dang things out and wiring and re-wiring.

Thanks

Which pedal should I get?

I started playing a few months ago, and I am looking to buy an effects pedal. I play a Strat and I would like to get some raw early punk sounds like the Stooges or Ramones. Does anyone have any input on what I should get? Please e-mail me with any suggestions. Thanks.

Re: Which pedal should I get?

i'm looking for an effect that sounds style garage-music like the velvet underground, the stooges, mc5, the strokes actally... thanks

I am borrowing one for a while, but I don't think he's interested in selling. It's a decent instrument, after I set it up properly.

lyle F510 value

i picked up a lyle F510 steel string acoustic (6 string) recently and wondered if anyone knows the value. Like most lyle's, it's better than it should be for a cheap guitar. (lyle was the maker for many low end arias and some gibsons, if my research on the net can be relied on). any info, discussion welcome. roy
