Pics Of Your Guitar

Recommended Posts

I opted for the standard fretboard as A) it was cheaper, B) it looked like a normal guitar then. I just couldnt find any pics as its not here at the mo. Hopefully my bro can send me some pics as they are round his.

It is wrong to think that thick instruments play or sound better than thin ones. Or heavy ones having a better sound.

 

In fact, it's quite the opposite.

It is in fact tied to the resonating properties of wood. And beware, there's many different mahoganies, ebonies and the like.

 

Even two guitars with adjacent serial numbers may sound totally different.

For those who haven't checked my site, here's me and my favourite one.

A real 50s Les Paul flametop, with real PAFs and all.

Light as can be, and the tone of your dreams...

 

Enjoy!

Very nice, my step grandad had a 60s LP and sold it in the 60's if he kept it it would be worth a fortune now

 

Indeed!

 

So, basically (and the way Mark Knoplfer put it himself) all we care is:

 

Girls, Cars, Guitars. I shall add "and Rifles".

 

I don't think there's anyhting else worth looking at

to catergorically say thick guitars sound better than thin ones is wrong.

 

and nobody makes guitars out of hazel.

 

the sound of a guitar cannot be contributed to any one thing, like body wood.

 

its not just about the thickness, or even the type of wood, but the mixture of woods (body, neck, fretboard) and the finish applied to them, not to mention the pick-ups, action, strings.

 

with my strat, when i got it it was strung with 9's. which sucks. it sounded nice, but im not a 9's man.

 

so i set it up with .12's, and it sounds like a completely different guitar, i changed nothing other than the strings and action, and i got a new guitar.

Soloman, is the Gothic series the one with the matte black paint and no fret markers apart from a cross on the twelfth fret? If so, they're quite sexy even though they're a posers guitar, as you said. Flying V's are really nice in general I think.

Yes they are, and they also have a layer of galvanised (sp?) rubber around it so that it dosnt get chipped. Pity they used baseline models for the series, otherwise they would have been HUGE imo.

Edit: or am i thinking of a different guitar? They might have been a custom one, im not entirely sure.

re: ENGL amp. The company makes laods of very good mainstream hardware.

 

Just make sure you try it pproperly. I mean volume and tone

 

Crank it up and play for at least half and hour. Really try to listen to the sound. Wack the gain up, play a while, and bring it down to see if the speakers inside can handle it.

 

Do you know how old it is? How long it's been on display?

 

Is it a valve amp? How does it sound with pedals going into it?

Apparntly, its a shop owners personal amp, and he's getting it through him rather than a shop or summin, i wasnt paying attention, but im pretty sure its all in good nick and according to him, it looks brand new.
