Re: Electronic tuner not working correctly (?)

Ive gone strictly to strobe tuning, but I seem to recall that the Korg I have laying around here somewhere always seemed to give erronius readings as the batteries were starting to get weak..

Re: New Build: 36" black walnut four-string

I do like the design! And the workmanship is very advanced, at least from the pictures. Very nice indeed. I noticed that you opted to go with just one pickup. Maybe a split coil humbucker? Interesting. Would love to hear a sound clip. Koy Carson West Texas **Carvin AC175 Thinline Acoustic **Ibanez E...

NBD! My "Holy Grail"...

Just got my new Ric! 2004 4003 Jet-Glo Rickenbacker Bass. I am incredibly pleased to add this to my collection! Came in absolutely perfect, except for some scratchy knobs. Going to clean those and a new set of strings and she will be good to go! http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h34/k5koy/Rickysmall...

NGD! My New Bass...Sa-Weeeet!

Hey everyone, thought I would stop in and show off my newest bass. This is a very rare beast. How rare, I'm still not sure, but I have heard from one guy that there were as little as 45 of these produced. Here's what I know for sure. It is an American made FSR (Factory Special Run) from Fender Jazz ...

Re: Neck transplant..

I'm curious how will it be finished - do you want the baseball-bat feel of ash, or will it be filled and smoothed out? Im not sure what you mean by filled & smoothed out, but it will be smooth but no finish really, just the natual wood.. Koy Carson West Texas **60th Anniversary American Strat **Car...

Neck transplant..

I have a Warwick Corvette 4 string with a severe Twisted neck. I took it to my guitar guy to see if it could be repaired. He thought possible, but didnt think it would be permanent due to the severity. We have decided a replacement was a much better idea so he is currently in the process of making m...

Re: So I Bought a Bass

Do a lot of people obtain a bass after playing guitar? I'm just starting regular electric but I'm also interested in bass guitar too, wondering how many people go for both and how easy it is to go to bass.. I went just the opposite. A friend of mine plays guitar very well for a self taught guy, and...

Just starting Rhythm Guitar?

First off, let me start by saying I am no affiliated with Hal Leonard. Having said that, I found a great new book for Rhythm Guitar that I thought I might share with the rest of you. Its called "You're in the Band" for rhythm guitar. By David Clo. Walks you right thru the basics and gets you right i...

Re: Very difficult. Can I do this?...

Just do what I did man... forget learning other peoples songs and write your own... then you can say what you want WHEN you want and claim that it was for 'artistic expression' ;).

Changing Key...
