pickups

i know this is really stupid, but i have pickups. and you know how they are like adjustable and stuff, well like how high should they be? cuz i can get them to practicly touchin the strings to down under the frame...someone please help me

Re: pickups

too low and you lose volume, too high and you can affect the intonation, i have mine set at between 5-10mm below the string when it held down on the 12th fret.

Installing 490R and an Angus Young Bridge in an Epi

I want to simply pull out my Epi pick ups and replace them with Gibsons. I bought a nice Epi LP Standard Plus in Heritage Chery Sunburst, but just want the same hot bucker sound I get from my other Gibson. (Standard Les Paul DC plus Desertburst) It looks like they just plug in more or less, after you remove the pick up holders and springs. But then again, is Epi the same as Gibson? I am hoping to pull the old out and place the new in relatively simply. Any help or suggestionn would be really appreciated. Send to jeff8874@hotmail.com- Thanks bro

finger practice

Do any of you guys know of a good plucking/picking/fingering practice routine? My left and right hand fingers don't seem to like each other. Getting frustrated...

Re: finger practice

Sounds bizarre....but...imagine you were drumming your fingers (actually do it on your picking hand). Now vary the pattern your fingers/ thumb are making - eg drum your fingers forwards, backwards, in pairs, alternating, etc. You can practice finger 'picking' like this anywhere....

Transfer this to similar patterns actually playing the guitar - don't worry about the left hand, just make sure thumb is on 'root note' of the chord and fingers are on top three strings (typically you don't pluck with you little finger).

For standard right/ left co-ordination, simply find a scale, anywhere on the fretboard, any key, and practice going up, down, back and forth with pick & fingers. Do it at the start of ANY and EVERY practice. Boring as hell, but works wonders!

Hope this helps.

killer solo

thank you

Re: killer solo

distortion pad and a super chorus could do it

fx schmex

call me a stuck up jazzer, but people rely WAY too much on fx. i walk into guitar center and im almost sickened by all the people with bad time, no tone, and horrible not choice buying into all these incredible fx. music is about texture, phrasing, intervals, rhythm, swells, tension, and resolution. i know im being quite harsh on some lad that only wanted to know what rig kirk hammet was playing on battery, but you know, i think you would find it much more satisfying to head down a different road. strive for great tone, which is acheived only by your fingers. big name companys will have you believe that tone is made by there expensive fx, but its just not true. again, sorry for the wicked post, im kind of in a pissed off mood at "wannabe" musicians. these are just my opinions and advice, but in the end, i guess its all about whatever makes you happy.

Sada Yairi Classical 800

Any one have or have info on a Sada Yairi Classical guitar model 800? What would the top be, spruce or cedar? How does it sound?

Re: Sada Yairi Classical 800

: Any one have or have info on a Sada Yairi Classical guitar model 800? What would the top be, spruce or cedar? How does it sound?

I have looked at several over the years. They are well contructed but they seem to suffer from fret buzz with age. Also the finish on the ones I've seen hasn't been that great. It seemed way to thick. The later year models have a pretty good reputation but I think they were still learning on these early models.

Whats the difference between Passive and Active pick ups?

?

Re: Whats the difference between Passive and Active pick ups?

passive pickups are copper wire wrapped round a series of magnets, they require no electrical charge, active pickups require a 9volt battery to run them, they have a higher output and produce more gain.
you dont see a lot of active pickups these days, a number of bass guitars use them.

Jackson Guitars

I haer they can really wail. I was gonna buy a strat but i hear Jacksons are made by Fender and can kick some serious ass...but are they good for all types of music, or just hard rock?

Re: Jackson Guitars

Actually, Jackson guitars are made by Charvel not Fender. And yes they're pretty good. I'm selling one if you're interested.

Re: Jackson Guitars

I hear they can really wail. I heard Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom play the Randy Rhodes guitar and it kicks ass. I was wondering if Jackson guitars are good for all types of music, but I'm mainly interested in a guitar for playing heavy metal. I especially like the Warrior MG series (all black) and the DKMG series all black guitar.

Punk Guitar

I'm going to buy an electric guitar but i don't know what would be good for playing Ramones styled punk. Please help me out. Thanks for the help.

Re: Punk Guitar

Re: Punk Guitar

Yes fender strat would tickle your fancy! ooooooh yaaaaaa might even float your boat!

Re: Punk Guitar

this guy is talking punk 'old school' something a strat would know nothing about, too thin and wheezing and fizzing and yuck, if you want to rip out those old school pistols, buzzcocks, clash you need a true 70's multi mahog slabbed bodied les paul custom through a fender twin.

Epiphone

I am new to guitars and recently I was given an Epiphone guitar. The only information I have on it is written on the back of the guitar where the neck joins the body it says Epiphone Company Nashville Tennesee and a serial number 15120059 It looks like a Les Paul Copy but I really would like to know if anyone can tell me what model it is. It sounds really nice and has two volume and two tone controls with two humbucker pick ups. Any info would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance
