Thoughts on this piece of shit?

Starstream 1, a modeling guitar from Vox. http://www.voxamps.com/StarstreamType1

It's both ugly AND sounds bad.

Holy shit that distortion, everything goes muddy as fuck when he plays more than one string. How can they fuck the sound up that bad?

Just picked up a Roland JC-120 this weekend, but it has a few issues, biggest one being that channel 1 of the amp does not seem to work at all. Might there be any easy solutions for this? I'm also having trouble dating it. SN is
416474 which I think dates it to 1984? I'd also appreciate if anyone could help me with that.

>>
>>61845076
damn that looks cozy
sounds p good too

could you demo the sounds you get off that tele?
>>
>>61845853
It depends on where you're at. If you're in a small town where kids have nothing to do and there's no scene, then make the shows happen. Book somewhere willing to host, book a decent band that will fly by on tour, and plug the show to everyone.

If your city has a happening scene already, just land an opening spot on some show. Most scenes will have regulars who are probably in bands that play all the time. To keep a scene alive they need to bring in new bands (who will bring new people along). Plus you normally don't want your band to go stale opening every week. i

Expect your strings to break, your cables to not work or to pick up more radio than guitar. So be prepared to swap. Expect to not be able to hear whichever member of the band you normally guide off of or yourself. If there's a soundguy, he'll mostly likely just want to screw everything up. Your shows can be a blast or straight up kick your dick in the dirt. If you believe in what you're playing it won't matter either way. Trial by fire is the best way to find out if you really do.

>Back in the USA, in an effort to rediscover what had made Fender's reputation, the company went to vintage dealers and took measurements from pre-CBS production instruments. They even spent $5600 on buying a '57 Precision bass, '60 Jazz bass and a '61 Strat. Both the US factory at Fullerton and Fender Japan set about producing vintage reissues- in fact the Japanese were the first to succeed and the superb quality of their instruments resulted in the famous quote by Dan Smith, Director of Marketing, Electric Guitars at the time :"Everybody came up to inspect them and the guys almost cried, because the Japanese product was so good - it was what we had been having a hell of a time trying to do."

MII Ibanez. I have one and aside from the shitty pickups and gloss neck, I would say it isn't too far from my MIJ Ibanez.

Yeah the pickups are crap, electronics are shit, neck is sticky on the back, but you can fix that with some sanding.

I just wish all guitar companies would go satin on their neck. Is it expensive to do so? I mean satin is so much more smooth for playing.

There are two trim levels to Gibson now, HP and T.
T is short for Traditional, with ordinary tuners, bridge and regular nut.
HP stands for High Performance, with the infamous 2015 features-robo tuners, headstock-mounted tuner, titanium saddles in the bridge and the "zero fret" nut.
Also of note is that the T models are about $350 cheaper than the same HP model.

for metal? 6505 without a doubt, and it's the most versatile with the 20w push pull/5w class A/1w class A switch. micro dark is fun but kind of a toy/back up type thing compared to the other two. the HT-5 isnt bad, but tonewise the gain channel gets kind of mushy for metal(thats just single ended amps in general). great hard rock tone though.

>ditch the multi
You know you're right. I basically only use it for octaving effects anyways, so I guess next on my list is a Pitchfork or a Whammy.

I play Sludge and stoner a LOT as well as plenty of alternative rock and stuff like that. In other words, I play primarily stoner/sludge but like to play anything that is fun.

>>61851370
>The organizer is supposed to have a weird warbly sorta pipe-ish sound, not like a hammond or like a big octaver.
So basically just like a POG or Micro POG with a chorus. Which also sounds better than the Organizer, and cleaner.

i dunno brhu i dont really into sludge or stoner or alt. i think delay is essential. so many things you can do with it. you should get a clean boost. especuialy if youre using t00bs. dont spend a lot of money. the zvex one consists or like $10 of materials. Zachary can blow himself.

>>61851541
>the zvex one consists or like $10 of materials. Zachary can blow himself.
This is true, but I also really liked it. I do know buying the parts individually is better and so is building it yourself but...

...Man I don't have an excuse rip, but I'm not dissatisfied with it, so I'm not too angry.

I'll grab a clean boost at some point, but I'm not using a tube amp. The EHXtrotion act's like one though, so it'll be a bit further down on my list after a whammy and maybe an Orange Micro/Tiny terror

Left is a Carvin Bolt kit. Special options are a mahogany body, ebony fretboard, and twin blade rail pickups.
Right is my prized 2007 Charvel San Dimas. Made in 'Merica. Best neck of any guitar ever made. Perfect in almost every way. Just wish it had a hardtail bridge.

I also have an SX fretless bass that I fucked up with a bad epoxy job. I don't have the patience to fix it atm, but it can be salvaged.

after an initial investment of like a couple hundred dollars you can definitely produce your own efx for like no money. "boutique" prices are out of control. especually the fucking $200

Questions:
Do you like the Carvin kit? how much was it? How would you rate the pickups? also about the San Dimas, what's the Tape for? Does it affect your sound much?

I'd really like to start making my own to be honest, like some different types of fuzzes and basically being able to make the ideal fuzz for me. I already have a soldering iron, what else would you recommend? I'm pretty decent at soldering.
>>
>>61851863
The Carvin kit was $530 shipped. I love it. It sounds like a really nice strat with hot, noiseless pickups and it played like a dream right out of the box. Cheaper than some Mexican fenders

The tape was to protect my pickups from metal dust when I was polishing the frets. I kept it on because it keeps the high E from snagging under the neck pickup. It doesn't affect the tone at all.

narrower tips make this shit so much easier. higher wattage too. i use a 40 W iron. i use a dremel to do everything with the stripboard i use. you can get a variable speed dremel for like $50 max when there's a sale. etching tips are great for cleaning flux off your circuit board. i use a uni-bit for all the drilling into the enclosures. smaller bits for pilot holes. cordless drill for this stuff. the more control over the tortque you have the better. you can get like a 20 V max drill/driver for like $150 max i wanna say. 12 V for like a hundred on sale, if not less.

other stuff i can think of off the top of my head incluides an exacto knife, brass wire brush (the toothbrush looking kind), several different pauirs of pliers, wire stripper(s), multimeter, helping hands, magnifying g lass, 6 '' steel ruler for measuring enclosures, sharpies, pencils, needle files, electrical tape, solder braid, scouring pad for buffing stripboard before soldering, uhhhhh

I've decided to get my first bass, after playing around with a few I've decided on the jazz bass style.
I'm torn between a Squier one, new, or a used Fender one I found. Both are $250. I know this is a good bargain for a Fender instrument, but is there any real difference between the quality of what must be a lower-tier Fender and a high-tier Squier? I definitely prefer the look of the Squier one, and don't know exactly how well the Fender is set up (plus it has tape on the neck that can't be removed, looks terrible).
How much of Fender's price is just payment for the brand name?

Alright, I was just wondering. The lack of information suggests that the Fender is a low model, while the Squier was the best bass of the style that they made.

The quality will be a little better even with a low-end Fender, but the resale value will be better too.

Is the tape load-bearing? Why can't it be removed? Maybe a tech can do something about it for less than replacing the whole neck.

usually the issue with squire basses are the necks. If it looks good and is straight, you can get the fender pickups and put them in for a very similar sounding/feeling bass.

The 7th string is mostly for different chord positions up the neck.

You sound like you need a 27 fret, 10 string guitar.

Baritones are much different than a 7 string to be honest, but I understand what you mean. Doesn't change you being any less wrong about shit though, 7 strings are fine to have and theres tons of good music out there that use them in a band setting, Just because you don't like it doesn't mean its bad.

>>61858247
Strings above 7 are where I draw the line. I used to also think I needed 24 frets but I rarely use frets above 22.
>>
>>61858274

in the same way 10 strings are.

Guys I'm planning on building a Telecaster just like this. But a Thinline version of it. Also I'm planning to have a lipstick pickup on the neck and I need some ideas on what to have as a bridge pickup. I was thinking of something not that similiar as the lipstick. Something more agressive. And yet affordable.
>>
>>61858340
well the outputs of the pickups have to be somewhat balanced.
>>
>>61858319
Id beat you half to death like your father should have.I just want to kill white kids.
>>
>>61858333
but with 10 strings you can play in more keys down low, you don't have to move down the neck, the strings sound different due to gauge and you have more range but i'm assuming you knew this right?
>>
>>61858358
YOU'RE TEARING THIS FAMILY APARTTTTTTTT
>>
>>61858371
A guitar isn't obligated to play multiple roles like a piano is. Plus the lower strings sound like shit anywhere above fret 7 or 9.
>>
>>61858396
hence 6 string guitars are fine in a band setting
>>

>in the same way 10 strings are
>6 strings are fine to have
>7 strings aren't since they have that note that doesn't interfere with the bass
Since you're such a bitch about the possibility of upsetting your bass player you may as well take the sixth string off too. I mean it's an octave higher but he might get upset that the lowest note is the same name as his.
>>
>>61858404
>Daily reminder Bacchus is equal to or greater than Gibson
FTFY

>poly
>equal to gibson
top kek
>>
>>61858441
or we can just add 2 more bass players. its basically the the same thing as extended range. why are you so upset about facts anon?
>>
>>61858452
>falling for the tone-finish meme
>>
>>61858453
I'm not the anon that you were talking to before. Bass and extended range guitars don't really sound anything alike. If guitars had five strings instead of six you'd be getting upset when people started playing six strings for the extra low end and bigger chords.
>>
>>61858478
yea so might as well go 10 string. also 5 and 4 string guitars exist anon
>>
>>61858404
haha
>>
>>61858453
kek
>>61858441
you forgot that the G on bass is higher than the low E on guitar. That said, I seldom use my G. BEA is my favorite territory.

Except once you pass seven and eight strings guitars the fretboard width starts to negatively affect playability, that's the trade off.

>also 5 and 4 string guitars exist anon
>missing the point: the post
>>
>>61858574
exactly. which is why 6 is fine for a band and 7 makes sense for solo in some cases. and no, tenor guitars tend to be used in multi guitar bands so they fit just fine. you really are a silly poster aren't you
>>
>>61858535
Oh I thought you meant the finish on the body. The bass I have now (Tokai thunderbird) has a really nice finish on the neck so I find it really easy to play but then I have never really played a Gibson but I'll have a chance to try out a friends on Thursday.

fuck off with your superstitious bullshit.
If you enjoy that plastic feeling of poly, by all means, have it. My 2 current instruments are poly. The reason it doesn't bother me much is because they have unfinished necks. I'm going to get a lacquer one in the future though. Likely a Flying V or Explorer.
Also nitro has nothing to do with relicing, which by the way is as retarded as it gets.

Sup /guitar/, need some advice. Thinking of picking up one of the Ibanez JEM JRs when I get my tax return, is this advisable or am I wasting money on a knock-off?

You're still missing the point, you know I'm not talking about that. If standard six string guitars had five strings instead, people like you would be whinging about six strings too.

Sevens work fine in a band. The low end doesn't get into the bass range and sevens are generally just as easy to play as sixes. The moment you consider five string basses are pretty commonly used nowadays and it becomes even more of a non-issue.

If you want to keep being upset by ERGs then good for you, but no one else cares. If someone is going to hammer the lowest string in their xXdeathxcoreXx band they would've done it just as readily with a downtuned six if ERGs weren't around.
>>
>>61858746
He can't.
>>
>>61858755
Why did you care about his opinion in the first place? Especially since he went about expressing it like an angry child the whole time
>>
>>61858755
5 string basses are fine. i believe its you who do not get anything. im not whining on principle. overlap or extended chord voicing is not needed in a band.
>>
will guitar comp pedals work fine if i plug in a bass into it
>>
>>61858820
it will work but some of them are more voiced for guitar so it might sound funny.
>>
How do I get into twinkly emo/math rock guitar?

/GG/ is a joke. its all about basic first guitar kids asking the same questions. Not enough faggots posting gear pics with time stamps. And all the 3 or 4 niggas that actually play guitar every night, and work on amps/guitars with new and old equipment frown upon you. Those actually fallowing these threads know it to be true.

I personally think that for that price you're better off getting a chapman guitar. They don't look as fancy though.
>>
>>61858988
Most of the Chapmans I see online are a bit more pricey, but I'm looking at the ML-1 right now, which is about a hundred dollars cheaper, and I like what I'm hearing so far. Thanks for the rec, I'm gonna consider this. It seems to have a more bright clean tone which I dig. I'd need to hear it with heavy distortion first as I write metal primarily, but it seems nice.

It was beautiful, it was yours, and all you had to do was buy it. But you couldn't do that. Now it's going to go away, and you know this.
