I hear ya on the hard case thing - my experience has been when traveling domestically, use the best most expensive hard case you can find because they will make you check it. When going overseas to Europe I use a Reunion Blues or Mono bag because I can bring it on the plane and it's easy to...
Hey Mandoguitar owners!
I'm having some issues with mine and I was wondering if anyone else had one of these and what-not.
Here's my Phantom Mandoguitar
I first tried an electric 12 string set but because of the 6 shared saddles - tuning was impossible. So I tried two sets of...
I tried going through the forums and finding what I needed about P-90's but couldn't.
I know there's at least 200 different companies making P-90's right now.
I don't care about humbucking.
I don't care who makes it.
I have had one custom made and I specified underwound, alnico...
I have a tele that I made with ash body, allparts neck, sd alnico II neck pup, GFS Dream 180 bridge pickup and has become my go-to guitar.
It's ugly as hell but feels and sounds great.
Acoustic wise - my Gibson J-30 smokes most acoustics I hear.
Rickenbacker 12 string
Gretsch Tennessee Rose
Les Paul Jr or Special
Les Paul Deluxe or Standard
Pedal or Lap Steel
Mandolin or Mandoguitar
Second Telecaster for when you break a string
Got them all except the Les Pauls - stolen.
I learned some things from starting this.
1) Mostly that it's been argued to death already.
2) And my little self righteous grievance is just that.
Oh, and that I would really love to see the "Relic Acoustic Troubadour Kit"(pat pend) come to life.
This rant starts at a show I saw the other day where the bass player was playing a bass that he had relic'd. He liked the way it looked (which I guess is the only reason to do it) but all the relic'ing was nowhere near where he played it. He played right by the pickup on the p-bass and the...
So I'm thinking of putting a pair of mini humbuckers in my tele. Wondering if anyone else has ever done it.
I've had a mini in the neck but never the bridge. I'm thinking I can get one of those humbucker tele bridges and, I don't know - put some tape over the open sides of the mini...
MWP is the reason I play a Ric 12 string. He's also the reason I play it as hard as I do. I solo on mine and it sounds huge. The toaster tops are a tricky beast with overdrive. I also made a 12 string telecaster that sounds gigantic when soloing. I've never done metal with it but I have...
Gibson J-30 acoustic
Takamine EF-381 12 string
rouge square neck dobro
Harmony roy smeck lap steel
Sho-Bud pro 1 pedal steel
Homemade Telecaster (bardens & bigsby)
I think that's all I used last weekend.
