Just some rambling...
A few days ago I was able to get a new Fender 57 Champ Custom amp. The amp is loud for just being 5 watts. The breakup starts happening around 7. The clean sound nice just like a bunch of other Fender amps do.
I swapped in a 12xa7 because I read some folks say that it...
Had an audition last Friday night for a cover band. They told me to learn a few songs from their existing list and I did. After we played those songs, we played a few random tunes that I suggested with slight hesitation and overall it sounded pretty good for our first time playing. The main...
I'm going to Ensenada again for vacation in a few weeks and I'm considering going back to the Fender Factory to see if I can get a quick tour. Last time when I was there I totally forgot to look for the neck and pu departments.
Wish me luck..
The relic wear on an open g tele seems to me that it would be different than a regular tuned guitar, right? Open G your most fretting across on the fretboard (I know, sometimes licks are played) instead of cowboys chords so the wear would be different. I ask this because I'm interested in a...
I'm looking for the that "thing" that you put in the middle of you speaker, which allows the sound to come from all directions instead of straight. Does anyone know that name of it? I saw a thread mention it, but I forgot what it's called?
I just got this speaker in used Peavey Classic 30. I tried to look for info on the web, but came up empty, so by chance does anyone have info on these? I guess I'm really looking for the sensitivity level on them.
I currently use a SCXD with the Ragin Cagin (sp?) speaker in it, but I feel that it's not loud enough for me during practice with a full band. I tried the HRDx, but was too heavy for me and I had to keep the volume at at around 3, which seemed to be a waste?
Is there another tube amp...
I decided to get this bad boy last wkend. I guess the gift cards that I had to GC are to blame! The amp is a used 1/98 USA model and the black tolex on both bottom corners are slightly ripped. I know nothing about this amp, but I will start snooping around here to get more info...
I 'm getting ready to pull the trigger on some aged Telecaster hardware for my first Partscaster, but I thought I would check with you lot to see if you can share anything about them?
Saw this guy last week in town and he put on a killer show! I don't know if this is your style of music, but who knows? He's the lead singer of the band called "Ours", but is doing a solo record/tour now.
This song is called "The Heart" and I say take a listen to the whole song with no...
For whatever reason I have been breaking the G, B, and high E a lot recently. The G just broke and I thought I would seek your help.
3 Brass barrels saddles with .10's on them and using S.I.T and D'Addario strings.
One tuned to E and the other open G.
I saw a tip that...
The specs say they are USA Texas Specials. Ok, but if I look at the images on-line for Texas Specials the wrapping string is black in the bridge on mine, but all the images I've found the wrapping is white and I just read something somewhere earlier today that mentioned this difference on this...
I've had mine now for about 4 months and last night I came to the conclusion that I love that guitar just using the bridge pu and when I do move to another position I end going back to the bridge. Maybe it's the song that I'm currently playing? (Zepp - The Ocean) Maybe it's the great pu?
This pedal arrived yesterday and I went to Radio Shack in hopes that they sold a 9v power supply for the unit, but there were out of stock on it.
Does anyone know of a on-line place that I could order one that would work with this particular pedal?
I picked up a very nice used 2001 52 RI last week. I'm enjoying the guitar, but the neck seems to build some junk on the back on the neck while I play. At first it was sticky junk and I used the Windex temporarily, but 2 nights later it is just like a layer of sweat/grime on it now...
I just got a 2001 52 RI yesterday and will need to bring it to the Guitar tech to do the modern wiring change, but I was thinking that maybe a 4 way switch install should be done at the same time. Good move or bad?
I got a 95 Telecaster Special about a month ago a truly enjoy playing it, but the bridge pu is real dirty and loud and it rocks! Would anyone know what pu Fender used? I know that the hw used was USA, but what model or was it just generic Fender Tele pickups?
On your next birthday will you buy a Telecaster in the year that your were born on?
I have this idea that I hope I can do when I turn 40, which will be to buy an original 1971 telecaster or even an original '71 Telecaster part that will become part of my playing gear. Something about doing...
