LOL.. line 6 free zone...

So true, I'm converted (tube tone) and finally I'm not banging my head against the walls micro tweaking EQ to try to get a full sound. Just happens all by itself now :)

It won't affect the tone, all 'potting' does is prevent the wires in the pickup from vibrating along with the guitar I believe, which is what's causing the squeal.

Very helpful process to know about if you're interested in modding pickups ;)

Hey guys.....I'm going to possibly open up a big can of worms here.... My neighbor is a musician and seems to think that the old guitar builders eg. Fender, Gibson ... still make the best guitars...I disagree, I think they lost their edge a long long time ago.... mind you some of it is personal taste, and custom shop guitars are probably good, but off the rack guitars are built cheap............ Comments ??

Hey G-Man.....What do I use to keep the oiled maple neck on my Wolfgang clean ? (and wont darken the finish)?.....the manual for the guitar mentions nothing regarding that....

Thanks !!

Also I think you're right that all the best players have their guitars custom tweaked ( or fully rodded so to speak)...Its got to be the attention to the small ( but critical) details that make a good guitar into a wicked guitar !!!.....your trade in the guitar business makes you a rare breed..... there arent many guys around doing it these days.....even beginner guitar players should get a deadly set up on their guitar ( or more) ........ I've seen beginner players playing crappy stuff that should be set up properly ( or thrown in the river) but they often dont know any better....Rock and Roll !!

I've gone from once having loads of guitars, pedals and amps to now owning two classical guitars and ten fingers.

I was hiding my poor playing behind effects and it forced me to improve by ditching all the electrical gear

I hear ya' too !!....... I still love electric guitar but have found that the better my playing skills get , the less stuff I want between my guitar and amp, all I have now is an Ibanez analog delay and an MXR phase 90 into a Marshall JCM 800...after that its all up to me... I've found that "working out" on a steel string acoustic , where you have to work for every note, is a great benefit to strengthen my playing skills....theres all kinds of cool flat picking stuff out there from bluegrass to gypsy jazz etc...

Well the rig i run is my Strat, or Carvin dc 400, S.D. Curlee or whatever guitar i want to play. The only pedal i like is the ibanez tube screamer and sometimes my '68 morley power wah i just dont like too many effects. Straight to my '74 pro reverb 2-12. The only thing im picky about is my strings on my electrics i use d'addario strings the 9.5 size. On my dean performer acoustic I use elixir size 11 but im gonig to try the new cleartones the coating is chemically bonded to the strings . That seems to work for anyknid of music I play like jazz, blues, rock not death metal but most rock, funk, reggae
Rock on

Does anyone have any good recommendations for practicing tapping? There are many songs (mostly ranging from hard rock to metal) I'd like to practice but I can't seem to get tapping down. Where could I find some good free sources? Guitar Tricks costs money to see the advanced techniques videos...

Ah bleh.

I can't get DRs here anymore... :( Still have Elixirs (I guess they're D'Addarios with the coating added) around but geez I'll miss those DRs.

Hey!

New to the thread :)

I'm thinking of setting up a small home studio - any suggestions?
Ideally it would all be as portable as possible, but I'd like iTunes-ready quality 'for cheap' lol (so maybe that will have to mean not-so-portable lol)

I'm a singer/songwriter with just a classical & acoustic guitar (Ibanez AE18PK)... (& a synth)

Any suggestions? (for a mic for female vocals &/or guitar mic, & other gear-?)

(Sorry if this has been discussed before, didn't manage to wade through all 99 pages :) but would appreciate a link in this case :))

The guitar in my pic is a Hondo guitar. It has amazing tone. I also have an Epiphone SG, and a Les Paul copy. I'm trying to find a better and louder amp right now. My 15 watt Peavy just isn't cutting it. I love the Diditech multi effects pedal I have.

... had to make a tech suggestion with out a diagram so sort of guessed on your idea .why not reinforce the ebony with a metal fender type bridge. cut the ebony with a L so the bridge hole abut up to the ebony...so the strings run through the metal and the ebony, Glue the ebony to transfer the vibrations and screw the bridge into the ebony and the body

not a brand but had an old no name 60's bass that had flat wounds. Never seen a RnR bass player use them but damm did they sound great recoding on this POS bass. Give it a try for a different flavor

true but good gear just makes it so much better,
but then again the best delta blues slide tone I even had was from a 5.00 plywood no name guitar , that is an eception .

if you still have the Green back G12M been running 2 with 2 of the H. the bottom and top end of the H mixes well with the midds of the M. My Cab of H's are great but they have a 100bd rating that makes them loud next to the M 97db, so I can crank my NMV head more with the M. Mixing gives me a bit of both
