Nah, for real, I had like 5 guitars at one time when I was much younger. Played for 6 hours a day it seemed back in my early 20's. I need to get back into it. It was much fun. Had a 12 string Ovation and just loved that thing to death.

Oh, yeah...it's worth a few bucks. :D But that was Dad's favorite guitar, so its sentimental value to the family is way up there, too. Barring a serious financial crisis, it probably wouldn't be for sale.

The love of my life was a black Les Paul Standard identical to this one:
http://img74.imageshack.us/img74/8563/197920lps20blklx4.jpg

Owned it for four years until November 1984, when for greed of a mere $20 I sold my Mile High Stadium parking pass before a Broncos game, and parked my Dodge Colt on a side street about three blocks west of Federal Boulevard. When I got back 7 hours later ... I saw the trunk lid open a block away, and I knew it was gone. D***head crook was so stupid, he left the bag with the Ibanex Tube Screamer, MXR Phase 90, cords and accessories. Dumass.

I love Ricks, but guitar is not my primary instrument. I always thought McGuinn played a 12 string. I absolutely loved the jangle sound of the Byrds and I mean loved it, but I could never do anything with a 12 string each time I tried my hand at playing one.

This is me with a Fender Stratocaster I had for awhile ... I think it was a Japanese Strat from the mid-70s. Never cared for the guitar much ... Strats are kinda limited in my view, they sound funny in certain styles of music. Don't like maple fretboards either, too "slippery." Rosewood and ebony give you "traction."

To each his own, I guess ... some folks like the tinny single-coil sound of Strat, too. Strats have a pretty powerful endorsement base ... three of the very best ever played Stratocasters right outta the box:

It's funny how a Telecaster with the very same pickups doesn't sound as tinny as a Strat, though ... why is that? The body thickness can't make that much of a difference, can it?

Is that an el84 based power section? I remember looking at those a long time ago, and going with a Matchless Clubman at the time. Currently I use a Bruno Underground 30 through a 4x10 cab with Weber blue pups... and a Fender Vibrolux. Looking to add a Swart Super Space tone, but my wife just might kill me if I buy another amp. I just love the way those el34's sound on a cranked out power section... and neither of my amps can quite compare.

If a Strat sounds "tinny" then it's probably because the guitar isn't set up properly. Because of the curved fingerboard radius, you have to set the action a little higher than, say, a Les Paul, to get a Strat to play well. Otherwise, most Strats tend to sound "plinky." The bridge pickup can sound a little thin or too trebly, but rolling back the tone control can smooth it out. Also, you can get a warm, fat, jazz tone by using just the neck pickup with the tone rolled back. Finally, with all the aftermarket replacement pickups on the market today, there's no reason to settle for a "tinny" sounding Strat.

You can always replace the Strat single coil with a Seymour Duncan stacked "Hot Rail" humbucker. That'll get the tin out. Stacked so you don't need to chop your guitar. It will slip right in the single coil sized slot.

I was pondering this a while back. If you put a stacked humbucker in at the bridge, does it screw up the out-of-phase sound with the pickup switch set between the bridge and middle? That's probably my favorite spot... but I use it about 1/3rd of the time. Always hated having to comprimise the thin bridge sound vs rolled back tone vs extra pre-amp gain. I wish I could get a p90 back there... that would be the single coil solution.

I saw McGuinn a few years ago, and he uses a 12 string Rickenbacker for the electric part of his show, and a Martin 12 string that bears his name for the accoustic portion. I was impressed that Martin made a Roger McGuinn model. I think it was a Roger McGuinn D7? something like that.

Edit: McGuinn did use a 12 string Rickenbacker in the Byrds days, so you were right; it just wasn't the guitar I posted http://www.mlode.com/~813/byrdsrick.html

And the McGuinn HD7 Martin is a 7 string, so it appears that I know nothing.

by the way, Denver peeps, McGuinn is playing in Golden on November 11 & 12 above the old Foss Drug store.. It's like the Golden community theatre or something, but in the 2nd story of foss drug. Tickets are about $45. He's purely a folkie these days, but plays Byrds stuff on the electric Rickenbacker, sings as well as he ever did, and tells great stories - like how Peter Fonda got him to write a few songs for Easy Rider. Worth seeing.

No.

BTW, to get maximum 'quack' out of that position, set the middle PU lower in relation to the bridge PU (works for either true single coils or stacks.)

http://www.celebrityrockstarguitars.com/rock/images/ricmcguinn2.JPG
Beautiful. I just saw Tom Petty on Soundstage, and he played a Rick that was even blonder than this one ... absolutely beautiful. The John Lennon pic above is B&W, but that might be a blonde one, too.


Anubis ... I remember when Dean guitars first came out, they were a real sensation, Nancy Wilson played one. I also remember when Schecter started making guitars in the early 80s, they were so tight, so much more advanced than standard Gibson/Fenders, and their prices reflected that. But then in the late 90s I ran across some new Schecters, and they were just $250-300! The market really fell off for them.


Broncolvr - I don't get what happened to Ovation/Adamis guitars. They were everywhere in the 70's and early 80s ... then suddenly they dropped outta sight. Their main claim-to-fame was their electronics/pickups for amplification of course, so maybe Takamine took their market base. I really wanna reiterate that Takamines are mostly for amplification imo ... not a room-filler of sound. In fact, they mostly have a kinda dead sound. I bought a black one in the late 90s from Guitar Center on Sunset when I was gigging acoustic stuff ... but I returned it like four days later, dead sound in a room. Great for amplification, though.

Is that an el84 based power section? I remember looking at those a long time ago, and going with a Matchless Clubman at the time. Currently I use a Bruno Underground 30 through a 4x10 cab with Weber blue pups... and a Fender Vibrolux. Looking to add a Swart Super Space tone, but my wife just might kill me if I buy another amp. I just love the way those el34's sound on a cranked out power section... and neither of my amps can quite compare.

They're el84's.

I believe that they are now producing a heavier power section in that amp...one that can push 6L6's or el34's.

I am a big fan of the el34's as well. BIG would be the word.

My 212 has a Weber blue dog and a Celestion greenback. I love it. Chime, chime, chime.

C'mon, playa-playas ... what songs are you blasting outta these axes? What kinda tunes have you played in what kind of bands?? The guitar pics I posted had me reminiscing ... it was a LONG time ago, but here's my best recollection of a set list:

Standing in the Rain - Tommy Bolin
Just What I Needed - Cars
Talking in Your Sleep - Romantics
Driven to Tears - Police
Dreams - Molly Hatchet
Rebel Yell - Billy Idol
Send me an Angel - ??
Lunatic Fringe - Red Rider
Eyes Without a Face - Billy Idol
What I Like About You - Romantics
I Will Follow - U2
On the Dark Side - Eddie & Cruisers (this one brought em down every time! ;D)


That's an early-80s cheesy M-TV set list if I ever saw one :~ohyah!:

Geeez, gorgeous! That is one pure rig... unspoiled retro purity.

I bought a Telecaster from a guy once in Greeley for just $75. The body was hand-painted black, and the paint was chipping off in several spots, it was really a mess to look at. So I stripped the black paint, put it back together and whadd'ya know, it turned to be (the electronics at least) a 1966 model - a pre-CBS//CBS hybrid with a kind of electronics quirk- a quirk Jimmy Page talked about in a famous Guitar Player interview, where if you balance the toggle switch between center and bridge position, you get an out-of-phase sound. I never used that sound playing, but it was cool to have the very Tele Page was talking about - he actually used his Tele for the solo in Stairway. Anyway, at first I left the stripped wood raw cause it looked so cool - but that was a bad idea, it started to discolor where my arm and hands were. So I sanded and varnished it, but that varnish turned a sick greenish. Finally I paid a professional to varnish the thing, and it looked great, but I thought it looked to "country," so I sold if for I think $350. Hey, I was just 21.

I like to think that we channel Van Morrison's "Domino", wrap it in Buddy Holly, and filter it through modern influences such as the Pixies and Radiohead, but the average listener will probably think that this album "sounds like" Weezer meets The Cars (for the more experienced listener).

I was pondering this a while back. If you put a stacked humbucker in at the bridge, does it screw up the out-of-phase sound with the pickup switch set between the bridge and middle? That's probably my favorite spot... but I use it about 1/3rd of the time. Always hated having to comprimise the thin bridge sound vs rolled back tone vs extra pre-amp gain. I wish I could get a p90 back there... that would be the single coil solution.

I'm not sure really. I think it has an extra wire or two for a phase switch. It's been 15 years since I put mine in.

C'mon, playa-playas ... what songs are you blasting outta these axes? What kinda tunes have you played in what kind of bands??

My band does classic rock covers to pay the bills, but we're working on our second record right now. For the covers, we try to do songs that you don't usually hear cover bands do, like Radar Love, The Chain, Crazy On You, and things like that. We also try to switch 'em up a little from the recorded versions. My thinking on that is, if people wanted to hear those songs the way that they are on the records, they'd play the records on the jukebox or at home.

As for the originals, I describe them as pop-infused, folk rock (with an emphasis on the "rock"). I guess you'll all see when the new record comes out. They're a drummer's worst nightmare. My rhythms are weird sometimes, but, mostly, I expect the drums to do more than keep the beat.

At least the new drummer is willing to do that!

My favorite stacks, however, are DiMarzio Virtual Vintage pickups. They sound fantastic.

Never used them or heard them. If they are active pickups I generally avoid those. I've never cared for the extra variable (weak battery) to deal with in my system. With the rack mounts and stomp boxes it's hard enough keeping all that junk working. Especially when playing live. The Hot Rails cut the tinny single coil feedback, they are a bit mid-rangey, bottom end heavy.

Ya think Billy Gibbons ever listened to Song for Laura? Ha! I grew up in California. For me, Spirit is always the sound I most closely associate with the place. The weirdest thing. My son tells me that his best friend's dad used to play keyboards for some band in California. One day I'm over there picking up my son and meet the dad and ask him, "Which band?" Spirit, he answers. Jaw drops. Later, I check the list of keyboard players that passed through the band. Yep, there he was. Actually played with most of the original lineup.

Dude, we need to have a jam on Orangemane weekend. Isn't Popps a drummer?
That is a GREAT idea ... we'd need a local drummer (or rent a kit), and some place to play. If broncosteven would stop buying up all the gear on Planet Earth, maybe prices would come down and we could afford to rent a hall and a P.A. I wonder if that VQ Hotel has a banquet room, we could prolly get it on a weeknight for $300, no food service. We could actually do this ... I'll play bass if it comes to that - if we need Hogan on drums, cause I don't think Popps is an "OM Weekend" kinda guy.


I was just throwing it out there.

What did they steal?
DESPITE WHAT HOGAN WOULD TELL YOU ... I am well aware that Page stole tons of stuff from American bluesmen. 'The Lemon Song' is actually Howlin' Wolf's 'Killing Floor,' and even though he credited Willie Dixon on 'You Shook Me,' there are other songs he failed to credit derivative sources. I've always been disappointed he didn't just throw these guys' names on with his as writers. It taint's Page's brilliance some. Hogan acknowledges that Page is bloody brilliant, but I think he agrees with me that these uncredited sources taint that brilliance a tad.


Want a real eye opener? When Zep first came to the States they toured with the great California band, Spirit. Go to some tune library and listen to a Spirit tune called Taurus. I guess it's more of an ear opener. ;)
Yes, that Spirit riff is very similar to the intro to Stairway ... but there are some differences: 'Taurus' is a string-laden easy-listening instrumental. There are no lyrics, and the only guitar part is that four-bar decending melody. In Stairway, Page uses both the decending melody, and a simultaneous ASCENDING melody as counterpoint. Everybody here plays Stairway ... here's the deal: Taurus has the melodic descending notes A, A-flat, G ... the 7th, 6th and 5th frets on the D string; but Stairway adds the ascending A, B and C ... going up the 5th, 7th, 8th frets on the the high E string. Both melodies drop from there to the D-major (although Taurus does not have the snappy little G to A-minor bang-bang resolution). Besides, the guy in Spirit supposedly agreed Jimmy could use that short snippet. In today's era of sampling, it hardly seems worth mentioning ....

BTW - Sitting here just now I realize that is also the SAME MELODY and intervals as the 1945 #1 hit by Bing Crosby and Les Paul (yes that Les Paul) called "It's Been a Long Time" ... sing it with me!
Kiss me once
Then kiss me twice

Both melodies drop from there to the D-major (although Taurus does not have the snappy little G to A-minor bang-bang resolution). Besides, the guy in Spirit supposedly agreed Jimmy could use that short snippet. In today's era of sampling, it hardly seems worth mentioning ....

BTW - Sitting here just now I realize that is also the SAME MELODY and intervals as the 1945 #1 hit by Bing Crosby and Les Paul (yes that Les Paul) called "It's Been a Long Time" ... sing it with me!
Kiss me once
Then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long long time

Is that a Taylor acoustic? That looks beautiful. I briefly had a black Gibson Everly Brothers jumbo in the 90s, with stars as fret markers ... wasn't mine, but a guy loaned it to me and wanted me to buy it. Man, I should have. Something about a black guitar .... mmmmm :thumbs:

Don't you guys have a MySpace page or something? Blue gave us some link or something and I heard some of your stuff about a year ago ... Post it again! OR I'LL FLIP YOU OFF! ;D




WE HAVE A SCHECTER SIGHTING!

Those things blasted on the scene in the 80s, they were so freaking TIGHT! The action was like space-age low ... so freaking easy to play, it felt like you were cheating, and they were VERY expensive. But then I didn't see one til the late 90s, and suddenly they were like $300.

I remember a gorgeous Schecter Telecaster model, with a marble-ized knotty wood body, with the most beautiful caramel-brown finish, and sleek gold hardware with a smooth, pale whitish-blonde fingerboard. I asked her out on a date, but she shot me down :~ohyah!:

Nah... it's a Rogue made by Martin. Every single guitar player I've ever let play it has told me that it's the best playing acoustic they've ever played. I bought it on eBay sight unseen except for one picture about 6 years ago for $225 (with shipping). It was the best investment I've ever made. I play it every day for at least two hours, and it's got great tone.

Yeah... I see Blueflame posted it already, though. :)

Mine was more expensive than $300. About $700, I think, but I only paid $440 for it new after dickering with the salesman. :D It's got a great sustain and tone... I play it through the amp without any effects except what's on the amp... a little reverb and a touch more high end frequencies than mids and lows. It's so easy to play and so easy on the fingers, which is why I love it, and, with my super long fingers, and I stretch all over the place with it and get weird notes 'cause the neck's so thin.

But mostly, I bought it 'cuz it was purty. :)

Replaced stock pickups with DiMarzio Virtual Vintage 2.1s (neck, middle) and Kinman AV56 (bridge)
Replaced stock trem block with Callaham cold rolled steel block (this is the most important upgrade you can make to a stock Strat - I can't emphasise enough how much this will improve the resonance and tone of the guitar - and for only $60!)

How hard is it to swap out pickups? I have a cheapo schecter fastback that I bought off Ebay for $100 even. I wanted it for the wammy, read a decent article on it in GFPM back when I still had subscription. Thought it would do stuff the Tele couldn't.

Anyway thought about putting in some real pickups for the experience mostly. Stringing/tying classical strings is about as intensive as I get on repairs/upgrades

If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's not that difficult, really (especially with a Strat-style guitar where the PUs are mounted on the pickguard and sit in the body cavity.)

Most of the aftermarket pickups I've purchased and installed on my guitars have come with really good instructions, and if you take note of the way your current PUs are wired and make a diagram for yourself before you get started, then it's hard to go wrong insofar as your new PUs are going to be wired the same way as your current ones.

This thread and the Strat modification talk had me thinking about a Stratocaster I sold a year ago. It was actually very rare, though not in a valuable way. It was Korean-made, which is indeed rare, because less than a year after Fender opened their factory there, they converted it to Squier products only. So there were less than a thousand Fenders made there, Strats and Teles combined.
That kinda rarity didn't impress me much ... I let it go for $225. ???

BTW Since this thread was last used I bought a 1960's Martin Classical.

My guitar teacher sent me to the store she buys from. The owner had a couple Martin Classicals set aside because there is not a big market for them.

He said the one I bought had been purchased from Martin for his dad's store but never sold. It spent a couple years on the stand but no one ever bought it. When his dad died and he moved the store he put mine and a Rosewood model away in storage.

I bought the spruce model 00-16C for a very good price, there was one small nick in the front but the sides and back which are mahogany were unbleminshed.

It was like it was made for me back in mid 60's and was put away for me to find it. I love the way it plays and it has a nice mellow tone, it could be louder but it is very balanced. The neck is a thing of beauty, I can see why Wille only plays his 70's rosewood model. They have the classical tone but play as well as the steel stringed.

I am hoping to land the Rosewood model in a few years. He still has it in storage.

OKAY! So, here's the deal. Last month, bought my first guitar!!!!!!!

A seagull s6.

Full dreadnought acoustic, solid top cedar, rosewood fretboard and wild cherry sides....don't really know a WHOLE lot about guitars... but this guitar is my baby. She's beautiful! Looks amazing (really interesting grain, my favorite at the musician's superstore), sounds extremely bright but kind of soft.

I'm pretty STOLKED! Now, just have to find a theory oriented teacher :D Fingers are already nice and caloused, so let the journey begin!!!!

anywho, hopefully my damn camera starts working so I can show off my new baby :)

yes, it's only a 400 dollar guitar, but it's all I could afford and I think it's absolutely amazing.

SO, pictures soon. In the meantime, this is about the closest I could find

You need to go Seagull man. Best acoustic guitars outside of Taylor and Martin that you can buy. When Seagulls become more well known their early models are going to be priceless.
