Telecaster

A friend of mine gave me a Fender Telecaster guitar, made in USA. It needs some adjustment and fine tuning. I know how to adjust the truss rod, but the thing has a WashburnII tremlo fine tune bridge on it. Never seen anything like it. No, it's not a Floyd Rose II, it has Washburn stamped on it. Anybody seen one of these, or know where I can find a manual on how to adjust that puppy? Thanks

John Frusciante

What effects pedal does john frusciante use to get the warm distortion sound as on the live at slane dvd??

Re: John Frusciante

i think it is a Boss OD-2 Over Drive

Re: John Frusciante

: What effects pedal does john frusciante use to get the warm distortion sound as on the live at slane dvd??
he uses boss ds 1 and 2 for most distortion
sometimes a zvex fuzz factory
solos a mxr pre amp pedal hes got two
on his amp hes always got at least a little overdrive to make his sound sound warm as when he hits all six strings which he really rarly does it quietly distorts
anyway there u go its a little late just stumbled over this but hey : )

Date for this Gibson?

[The body of this post has been lost]

Re: Date for this Gibson?

OK heres my guess,`75-`77 , in those years gibson used a transfer serial number, and if you sanded off the paint then the serial number would come off too, before and after those dates the numbers were impressed on the back of the headstock, also it looks like a 75-77 model, my friend has one (with transfer No) and the bridge is exactly like yours, large square tuneomatic, your pickups dont look original, and are they schaller machine heads too? i think his had those, still a top notch guitar, damn good hat too.

Lee

Re: Date for this Gibson?

Thanks for the reply Lee. As far as I know, the serial number was the usual type on Gibsons, just that the guy doing the sanding, er, over-sanded it! You can still make out a couple of numbers very faintly if you look at it in the right light. Yeah, the pick-ups were changed, again before my time with it, and I seem to recall something about the machine heads possibly being changed, though the current ones are "Gibson Deluxe". This subject isn't really one I know much (at all!) about... I just love the sound that comes out the damn thing!! When I took it to get valued when I was buying it, the shop thought it was stolen due to the serial # being removed, but the guy I bought it off is totally trustworthy, so the sanding story stands!
It's one of these things I've always wanted to know, purely out of curiosity. I wonder what sorta history it had before I got my grubby hands on it.
Thanks again for the reply... both guitar and hat are doing well!

cheers,
Dave

Pick up height?

Hello,

Being relatively new to the Electric Guitar I purchased a Godin SD Performance. What I'd like to know is the aprrox. height of the pick ups from the strings. The pick up orientation is HSS. I've tried finding the relative specs but none seem to exist. I'd be grateful of any advice.

Re: Pick up height?

Ive answered this one before, move the pickups too far away and you lose the sustain, move it too close and you start to effect the intonation, as a general measure i would hold down the string on the 12th fret, and measure between .5cm - 1cm distance from the pickup.

vibrolux amplifier

Hello,
I found this old amp at an estate sale. It was in VERY bad shape. I restored it. First time I have done this but it turned out pretty good. Anyway, can somebody out there tell me how old this thing is. It has two numbers on the back...004..and 00413. I will try to post 2 pictures. This is the only way someone out there can make a guess about it's age so I hope they work!

VST effects - Help please

I have guitar connected to my comp trough my 15W Marshall amp into the line in of my SB live. When i want to aply a VST effect to my recording the sound is bad and noisy. I use a noise reduction too but doesnt help much. I know it would help to edit the clean sound before I aply the vst effect but I dont know how.
Please someone help

Re: VST effects - Help please

do you use the headphone socket on your marshall to go to the SB card? if so the signal may be too harsh, the signal is used to drive headphones not the more sensitive line in socket on your SB card, do you have any amp sim effects? multi effects? if so use that, if not try going straight in on the SB card bypassing the amp, see if you get a clearer sound.
Lee

Re: VST effects - Help please

i tryed without amp but with amp the sound is little better.i go from my amps output no trough headphones

Re: VST effects - Help please

one thing i can think of is to try turning down the input level on your 'line in' mix. it is the one in windows, you have wave level, line in level, synth level, midi level etc, give that a go.

Need some help to value a guitar

I bought a guitar from a second hand store some years ago (more of a flee market actually) and would now like to sell it on to help fund my next guitar. The info I give here is taken directly from the guitar it’s self – Gretsch TW-100T Traveling Wilburys. It’s body looks vaguely like a Les Paul but it has only 1 pickup and 1 volume control. It has a ¾ length bolt on neck with 18 frets. The body has graphics on the face side with a logo on the back with printed “Wilbury” signatures and say’s “designed by Gretsch”. It doesn’t look like any Gretsch I’ve seen before and it doesn’t seem to have the best build quality ether. No idea what kind of wood are used on any of the guitar parts ether! Hope this is enough info for someone to I.D the guitar and maybe give me an idea of value. If you can help I would be obliged.

Re: Need some help to value a guitar

have you seen this???
http://www.gretschpages.com/models/wilburys/
sounds like a bit of danelectro.

Re: Need some help to value a guitar

Thank's Lee!!! You hit the nail on the head, this is the guitar in question. Looks like it won't go a long way in funding the new guitar though!!!! Scott.

I want to sell 3 guitars.. need some help on pricing.

i have a Pan 6 string acoustic,Flambeau LFW-3C and a Hyostar SJ 975. How much would these be priced each? any info would help greatly.

Dititech RP 100 or Zoom 505 II

I've got a Digitech RP 100 which is pretty okay but now I'm really desperate to get rid of that one and pick up a Zoom 505 cause' I'm told the distortion on the Zoom is far better. Has anyone one here tried both Digitech & Zoom and what do you think ?

Cheers

I prefer Zoom boxes over Digitech. I play a 503 and a 606 and I enjoy them both. I tried a couple of the newer Digitech units and I thought they were pretty lame beside the Zooms. If Zoom is good enough for Steely Dan, then....

jedson acoustic

i picked up a jedson acoustic from the local oxfam shop a few years back,it looks and plays brilliant and has a quality build to it - it was covered in stickers from i would say the early '70s can anyone shed any light on this wee gem ding.
