Giannini guitar, circa 1973

Hi. I own a Giannini guitar that was purchased around 1973 brand new by my parents. The model number is
GN-100 and was made in Brazil. The back and sides are brazilian rosewood. Does anyone have a good idea of what it would be worth? I am interested in selling it. Please email if you have any thoughts about this, or can suggest where I can also look. Thank you.

whammy bar

My husband purchased a used Greg Bennett Signature series Samick
guitar that didn't have the whammy bar with it. It has Floyd Rose tremolo
with locking tuning,24 fret. The whammy bar threads in.The serial number
is 0020636. It has 2 dual pickups and 1 single coil. I would appreciate
any help in finding a whammy bar and any other information you could give
me about this guitar.
Thank you,Mary Graves (e-mail looselucymg@juno.com)

Re: whammy bar

Try asking customer service

Re: whammy bar

Try StewMac.com, got mine there after I busted the first one.

tone-lok pedals

what do you think about hte tone-lok series pedals from ibanez(especially i'm interested in SM& the smashbox,CF7 chorus flanger,PM7 phase modulator pedals.ARE they good?and if they sound good with an ibanez rg guitar ??anyone that can't help me answering please do so...

Re: tone-lok pedals

personally I don't like the tone-lok series that much, I'd stick with boss. Although boss can sound pretty concrete and generic, their reliable adn heavy duty. Also try DOD, Electro Harmonix, or Digitech X series (those come with like 7 different tone settings along with eq variables). Steer away from brands like Arion (I got an octave from them that sucks beyond belief, although I like the sound bits they have on musiciansfriend. for their distortion pedals), also Rocktron pedals just sound odd and bland. I don't much care for those silly little dan electros either. But that's all my opinion, go on musiciansfriend.com and listen to sound bits, and go to some local guitar shops and try some out, have fun with it.

Re: tone-lok pedals

thanks for answering.I've tryed from DOD death metal and grunge distorsions and i didnt like them.Also from boss i've tryed mega distorsion, overdrive distorsion 2,but never the metal zone!i'm into like nu-metal(korn newest distorsion from the latest album style-is there a pedal that sounds similar to that without using the messa rectyfiers?:) ) style so what pedal you recomend me for the distorsion?the other ones dont interest me that much,cause i have many choices.And also i'm only with boss,ibanez and maybe digitech.i dont trust other pedals!(dod's are probably good biut they aren't for my taste)

pedals

what pedals sound great even without a good amp!i want a list with great pedals just are awsome just by themselves.(i'm into like nu-metal,hardcore,even metal etc).reply me if you something.....

Re: pedals

boss pedals... or mutlieffect processors like the digitech series sound farily well on shitty amps

Re: pedals

amp modelers might help, get a gnx3 that'll do the trick.

Re: pedals

tenx,already have a digitech and i'll sell him cause sux!tell me about pedals not multieffect proccesors cause i've been there.again thanks.reply.....

Re: pedals

i have already a digitech but i want a setup of pedals.i've already ordered 3 pedals from ibanez and the BOSS ns-2 noise suppressor!(ibanez are SM7 CF7& PM7)from the tone-lok series.....

Re: pedals

check out http://www.danelectro.com. The effects pedals from this company are from the 50's and went well with cheap one speaker tube amps. Todays cheap amps are all solid state and don't have that great rock or blues sound.Look to see what you want and if possible go to your local music store and try it out before you buy. I have even taken my guitar and amp in and tried out stuff before i bought.That is the best way to do.Every one has their own taste in effects.I have a ZOOM 50511 and it works for me,there are a lot of effects on it but i only use two or three.I tried a korg but sent it back,diden't meet what i was looking for.The really super tape echo effects will cost a fortune.

Re: pedals

thanks but first of all i cant try them cause i'm from romania and there are no strores here like samash,musiciansfriend,zzsounds,music123 and anything like that.so..i've played on zoom 505II and korg and doesn't do it for me....and here tube amps are very expensive!.what do you think about ibanez pedals?i'm into like modern rock like nu-metal and stuff....

Korg ax100g

I've just purchased the ax100g and although I have the instruction manual I cannot work out how to record loops or samples can some please hewlp me?

Help required about playing

I'm quite a begginer in guitar. I need some help in following aspects;

Strumming (I know chords of songs to play but somehow I dont seem to figure out strumming and its frustrating)

Secondly some good way to practice chords specially shifting chords. I suppose best way is to play in diff combos as diff songs but strumming is one thing which makes it impossible

Anyone can refer me to some good site for this purpose or any tips.

Thanks

Plato

Re: Help required about playing

hi
tons of guitar sites out there with all sort of tips. www.olga. and others.. use the search engine and look around.

as for strumming tips, i would say, for most generic guitar chord playing, just get used to struming down then up again, down then up again, so its smooth and easy.
metal music is mostly down strokes, anytime you want to emphasize a beat, you can use a down strum.
as for shifting from one chord to another, pick some chords that look sort of similar, and switch from one to the next and back again.
like a C and a G7 chord, they're sort of similar. a D and an A7 are almost similar.. An A minor and an E chord are the same, too.

some songs were written by rock stars, probably by tinkering with chords when they were practicing.
the Batman theme just moves one note within the same basic chord shape.
the beginning of Stairway to Heaven and also Pinball Wizard, they seem to be similar.. same basic chord, but they moved one finger up or down a little bit, and liked it so used that.

I recall that i used to use Em and G and C and D, and make up my own chord patterns when I was starting out, since I didn't have alot of sheet music, but knew a few chords, so tinkered with them a while.
don't get discouraged.
I don't know if this helps. just have to remember it won't sound like anything really good until you do it a bunch of times, and get it memorized in your hands.
nobody sounds smooth and perfect when they learn something new, have to just keep at it a while.
good luck.
dan

learn 7string guitar

hey folks, i'm a pretty much amateur in this guitar stuff, so please excuse me for my stipidity..
SO.. 1.Is there much diference in learning 7string instead of 6string elctric guitar, and can i play 7string the same as 6string, by not using the extra string? 2.do you know any good sources for learning 7strings? and info about the differeces between them?
Please E-MAIL me: valdez@banda.lv

Re: learn 7string guitar

if your an amatuer then don't start out on a 7 string.

Re: learn 7string guitar

i cant even count to seven

Re: learn 7string guitar

You're dead on about learning a 7 string like a 6 string. Unfortunatly there is no known resource about learning on a 7 string. Most people tune the low B one step lower to an A for creature comfort of being able to make bar chords. There is no reason for a guitar playing that low but what the hell, it's modern.

Peavey T-15, Where can I get a cheap bridge+tuning pegs?

I'm looking to get a T-15 going, but its missing the entire bridge and all 6 inline tuning pegs... Does anyone know where I can get some? Either used or even a generic brand is fine too. Thanks, Matt

Re: Peavey T-15, Where can I get a cheap bridge+tuning pegs?

Hi,
try stewart macdonald. www.stewmac.com
too many types and brands of bridges and tuners to mention here.
personally, I'd go for one of the Gotoh tuners.(cheaper but just as good as the grovers and schallers.)
you could also try to check with Peavey. they sell parts for their things.

Epiphone LP Jr. question

On an Epiphone Les Paul Junior, is the wiring under the pickguard or is there a removable plate in the back like on a normal LP. In other words can you take off the pickguard, and just play it like that without one (without exposing wires). because I want to get one (can't beat 100 bucks) but I hate that pickguard, so I thought I'd pull a Steve Jones if I can. Thanks in advance to anyone who knows the answer

Re: GIBSON SG STANDARD EBONY $800

: I just bought a 99' gibson sg standard (ebony) for $800. Did I get a good deal?? PLEASE RESPOND thanks a lot!!

hi,
i would say you paid a decent price. the new "SG standard" goes for about $1200 i think?
ok checked. list is 1,598 for a new Gibson Standard SG. so, lot of stores would have it for sale around ummm 1,000 to 1,400 maybe. of course, If it has a anything really nice or special about it, it would be worth more. (like bigger inlays)
this $1,598 is priced for a standard SG with just the regular dot inlays, and rosewood fingerboard.

Gibsons tend to either retain their value, or appreciate in value, so 800 sounds like a fair price, not a "steal" but not bad deal either, especially if its in real good condition.

one way to think of it is, If you went to sell it, you could get your money's worth out of it, or maybe more, so that's not bad as far as that goes.
And on another train of thought, you can't buy a new one for that.. maybe one of the "faded" ultra plain "SG Specials", but not a Standard SG.
So if you think of it that way.. it's almost a new SG, but over half the price of a new one.
Anyway, be happy, because you got a GREAT guitar!
SGs are really nice guitars, nothing to be ashamed of, they sound great, and play realllllly well.
SGs and Les Pauls feel easier to play than a strat. - shorter scale, great for smaller hands like mine.

This is just my opinion.
