Squire Tele Custom II

I'm looking at buying a Squrie Tele Custom II. I need feed back from anyone that has any info on this guitar. My local dealer seems reluctant on getting one in because he says the quality is hit and miss. I would hope the Tele Custom II would have less bugs as the past Custom and Custom I. I think he wants me to buy the Fender model. I don't want to invest 3 to 4 times the money if the Squire will serve my purposes. I play for fun and some recording. I have several other guitars, and I'm looking for a Telecaster type of guitar for a more Bluesie sound.

Re: Squire Tele Custom II

I just bought one and I love it! The P90's in this thing sound great. Here's what I did; I had one of the guys at the shop play the Custom II on a Fender Amp. Volume and Tone cranked to 10 on the guitar. Then, without touching any dials on the amp I had him plug in a Squier Standard Strat, again cranked to 10 on the guitar. Bro there was no comparison! The tone on the Custom II was fatter and more "bluesie" than the Strat and anything else I've heard in the price range. I'm telling you it was night and day. (I paid $229.) Plus one of my techie friends JUST told me that a P90 pushes about 1/2 a watt, more than most all single coils, including humbuckers. (check into it) Enjoy!

Tuning a five string bass guitar

Hello,

How do I tune my new five string bass guitar.

Peter

Re: Tuning a five string bass guitar

: Hello,

: How do I tune my new five string bass guitar.

: Peter

BEADG You'll be best centering your technique round the 5th fret/position - as though you were playing from a barre A major position on a conventional six-string guitar.

Hope this helps.

Tuning a five string bass guitar

Urrrh... could you get an elecronic tuner to tune it or would you have to do it by ear, if that's the case It'll be quite difficult for me to tune it that way

Two guitarists needed for a punk rock band in Cleveland, Ohio

I need 2 guitarists (ages 14-17) for a punk rock band. I'm looking for people who are willing to be different so we'll stand out above other punk bands. I have no preference whether people are male or female. I have not had any previous experience in a band that has actually played together. I am 14 (female) and I sing, the bassist is 16 (male), and the drummer is 15 (male). Please, if you're interested, contact me.

Guitar amps vs. Keyboard amps

I have a question: is there a difference between guitar amps and keyboard amps? My brother told me that if I use his guitar amp on my keyboard that it will ruin it... he said there are different frequencies or something...
If you can explain why it will ruin it OR give me a way to prove him wrong it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks a lot

mike

Re: Guitar amps vs. Keyboard amps

tell him to play a high pitched pinch harmonic, then explain to him what an octave pedal and dropped tuning is. frequencies my ass. unless you're planning to play bowel moving, or dog whistle music, then your brother just doesn't want you messing with his stuff man.

Re: Guitar amps vs. Keyboard amps

guitar (electric) through a K/B will will sound shit, a K/B through a guitar amp will sound shit, cant do much damage either way, just no point in doing it.

Buzzing

hi

I have a real bad buzzing sound coming from my guitar!! it is a gibson sg standard(1998).It is set to standard tuning.it has brand new gibson strings on it.i dont know how to get rid of the buzzing.there are 2 types of buzzing on it the first it coming from all the frets on the A sting.and the secong buzzing doesnt sound like that the other buzzing seems to be coming from the bridge itself and is much worse than the fret buzz.any ideas how to stop both the buzzings? thanks alot

dave

Re: Buzzing

best to give it to a tech, but if you want to have a go yourself, you should try moving the tunomatic bridge up a little, you will see 2 thumbwheels, turn them a full turn each and see if that cures your problem, but it sounds like it needs a good setup by a guitar tech.

Metal Bassist Wanted by Major Labor Signed Band, NYC

How is it going?!
This is Tamas, drummer of Disillusion, NYC trasch-heavy metal band.
Finally we got to a turning point, where my band, Disillusion is going to sign a deal with a very well known metal label. I cannot really name it yet, but believe me you would be very surprised.
The band is influenced by Metallica, Slayer, Priest...
I mean we did well last year, and people from the industry are quiet interested in the band.
Here we are again, we are in search for the bass player.
At this time we are going to have some serious addtitions, because the band will be going to record the album in the next months.
So we need the right guy with the right attitude, knowledge, availability, image....etc.
Basically, we need a god damn metal bassist.
You heard our music, but if you need it again just let me know, and I'd send some mp3's.
The band got a second guitarist, who is great match for our music.
Check out the web, if you'd wanna see what we have done so far, last year.
http://www.powertripmetal.net
Here you can listen to our mp3's.
http://12.103.241.250/disillusion.html
I hope to hear from you!

Take it easy,
Metal UP!
Tamas

I can see why it doen't work! I need a diagram of the wiring system so I can solder or whatever the wires back where they belong. Thanks alot.

Double Fat Strat

Hey, I've never touched an electric guitar in my life and I was thinking of taking it up when a friend offered to sell me a double fat strat for a pretty good price. Just out of curiousity, what is the advantage/disadvantage of a double fat strat vs. a fat and/or standard strat? Who plays a double that I might have heard?

Re: Double Fat Strat

Its gona give you that double sound that most d/d guitars give... gibsons are double/double bc riches d/d and most guitars are... If you need more power in your playing use a double pickup

Trouble with guitar sound

I'm in a bit of fix. I've been playing the guitar for around 12 years and want to do something to improve my sound. Effects aside, I have a 1987 Japanese Fender stratocaster and although I like the sound, realise that the pick-ups are old, that there are no trust rods and that the frets are considerably worn. Is it worth getting the guitar fixed or simply get another guitar?? Please, somebody help me.

Re: Trouble with guitar sound

dude, twelve years.....get any new guitar

Re: Trouble with guitar sound

Jap strats from that year are very good, you could have the frets stoned and a pro setup for about £80, may be worth a gamble, you could replace the bridge pick up for a hotrails humbucker to give it a bit of variation, but i would be tempted to buy a new guitar but keep the jap strat as an investment!!
