Epiphone Les Paul Custom

any good?...or crap?

Re: Epiphone Les Paul Custom

excellent, the newer type ones have better quality pickups, the older ones used to feedback a little and were a bit weedy, they now have 'potted' pickups, the body construction is as good as ever, 2 peice mahogany, they sound very authentic, i dont own one, i have played one or two. but if you want a cracking les paul 'copy' go for an 80's tokai love rock, absolutely stunning instruments, far better than the epi's.

David Gilmour

I need to Identify the lead guitar played by David Gilmour on his "In Concert" DVD. Any help will be greatly appreciated

Re: David Gilmour

: I need to Identify the lead guitar played by David Gilmour on his "In Concert" DVD. Any help will be greatly appreciated

It's probably a black Gretsch Duo-Sonic guitar. he uses it in the momentary lapse of reason album and its most possibly the one that he uses "In Concert"
Obviously has 2 humbucker pickups but it also has TWO three-way switches...which is pretty wierd...gotta do some research on it

Re: David Gilmour

It´s a Gretsch Duo-Jet like George Harrison 1th american guitar.

mustang help

i've just changed the strings on my mustang for the first time (since buying it) the bloke i bought it off has put heavy strings on it (10's or 11's), and, i assume, set it up accordingly. the only strings i had opn hand are 9's. the problem is, the strings are buzzing like you wouldn't know. will the different string guage make a difference? or should i get it checked out?

Re: mustang help

the strings you have put on are a lighter gauge and causing less stress on the neck and has caused the neck to straighten and create the buzz you are talking about, if you ask me 9's are rubbish, they are too light, unless you want to keep the 9's i would suggest you put back a good set of 10-46's or 10-48's, if you want to keep the 9's then you will have to adjust the truss rod and probably the saddle height too, take my advice put a set of 10's on, D'Addario do an excellent set.

Re: mustang help

Most old Fenders, I find, play better with heavy guage strings. On Jaguars, Jazzmasters, and Mustangs, my suggestion would be to go no lighter than a .10 or preferrably an .11 on the top end.

Yamaki guitars - my model Yamaki MC 400

My Yamaki Concierto MC 400 was bought in 1975 in Tromsø, Norway. I tested several other classical guitars for nearly 6 months. But my Yamaki won! Easy to play, a very good sound and good looking for a very reasonable price compared to more famous guitar brands. I paid about $ 400 in -75. After having tested guitars today, I doubt I can find the same quality below $ 1500 (!). Do anyone else have experience with clasical models of Yamaki? Does the brand still exist? I haven't found any Yamaki guitars in Norway since -78 (!)

Muted string at fret 19...

Hi!. I own a Epi Les Paul Custom and when I play the first string (high E) pressed at the 19th fret all I get is a muted sound. It's the only place & string with this problem!! it sounds great in any other fret!!...

Re: Muted string at fret 19...

look down the neck, can you see a prominent fret?
sounds like its lifted a little on the 19th fret, if you can see that is the problem you can take it to a guitar repaier and get the frets stoned (levelled.)

It sounds good. I really like the instrumentation. Killer guitar, drums, and bass. The vocals are good but need to be recorded differently - they're a little too distant, though I know you did this on a shoestring. Maybe they could be a little more emotional - scream a little to compliment the guitar.
I thought the lyrics were just OK, but overall, pretty good.

what is the difference between an electric guitar and an acoustic guitar?

I've been getting lessons on the acoustic guitar. I want to play the electric but people tell me that you have to learn the acoustic first then you'll know how to play the electric guitar. Is that true? If it is not true what is the difference in playing the electric than playing the acoustic.

I don't have a compeling reason one way or the other but I will ask this, What are your goals in playing guitar? Certainly every kid in the world wants to crank it up. Electronics is cool and electric guitars are, in my experience, much easier to play. But as you get more involved with the guitar, you'll begin to appreciate the character of each kind of guitar - acoustic or electric. I have a Les Paul electric, a Guild acoustic, and a Yamaha classical. I want a Dobro or International to get a southern sound. I wouldn't choose one guitar over the other - I use them all. It just depends what I need them for. I appreciate finger picking and screaming leads. I record music so I want access to every sound I can get my hands on. If your goal is to be a lead guitar player and you don't think you'll ever change, then electric is for you - playing an acoustic guitar will just boar you. But don't sell the acoustic short. Some of the most intriguing guitar playing I've done in my life has been on acoustic guitar.

how to : playing with a recording live

hi
i'm in a 3 piece band and we need to play some other recorded guitars and keys section live because we do not enough members.. how do we do that?
thanks in advance

Re: how to : playing with a recording live

thats a difficult one because of the tempo of your live song against the tempo of the live version, are they short guitar parts you need to playback? if so you could try putting them on a sampler keyboard, assign a different guitar part to each key.
Lee

Re: how to : playing with a recording live

hi
err.. the part we're missing is mainly the rythm guitar and some synth throught the whole song.. what is a sampler keyboard? is a midi controller with a sound module anywhere close to it's function? thanks

Re: how to : playing with a recording live

if you have a live drummer it will prove very difficult to do.
