Asked in the earlier thread, I'll ask again: when compared to the more simpleIbanez models that run between 150 and 200 dollars, is the JEM JR worth the extra couple hundred dollars or am I better off getting something cheaper? I'm looking to upgrade from an old beat-up Squier Strat and I'm wondering if the difference in quality is worth the 400 I'd be putting towards the JEM. I've heard a few demos of it and it sounds killer, but I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with it for reference.

eAcoustic bass is a second bass to own, imho. Straight electric gets you taken seriously by the people you will be jamming with. Also good for silent late-night practice sessions.

Is there a difference in stability between a thick neck and a thin neck?
>>
I'm getting my first bass (played guitar for a few years now) and I wanted to know if I should straight up buy it online or go to a GC and try out some basses and feel it out. Since I have no experience with basses I don't think my judgement would be good enough, but I could do it regardless, besides sounds, what should I look for in a precision bass? The general stuff you would look for in a guitar? Something else? Or just go online?

You're paying for all of these things when you're buying it. Do you need them? I'm not saying this is a bad guitar, but if you're looking for the best bang for your buck, that might not be it
>>
>>61860061
People around here always say to go cheap on the axe and spend the difference on amps and effects. I say, once you've played a quality axe, you won't want to take that step back down.

At $150-200 you're still in Squire territory... No point spending the money for more of the same, imo. At $400-500 used, you're likely getting a quality instrument. Same price new, I'm not so sure.

Real experience with the Jem Jr.? Sorry, none.
>>
>>61860061
Are you really into that inlay/grip?
You can get a much better second hand MIJ for a bit more.

The JEM Jr is pretty much a RG350 with some extra cosmetics.
>>
>>61860355
I've heard how it plays and honestly, those things are just cherries on top. The Vai trem bar is a nice touch I'm interested in getting the hand of again, too.

>>61860443
>At $150-200 you're still in Squire territory... No point spending the money for more of the same, imo. At $400-500 used, you're likely getting a quality instrument.

See, this is the general impression I got and I told myself something similar but wasn't sure. I was thinking "Well, if I get the cheaper Ibanez and I discover I've bought something that plays no different than my Strat then I'm gonna be kicking myself over not getting a real upgrade." I wasn't sure if that was a correct way of thinking, but I'm happy you've confirmed that for me. I've seen enough of the demos and reviews to observe that it has the sound I want. Thanks, guys, I'll shop around at my local guitar shop before committing but I'm strongly considering the JEM now.
>>
>>61860458
I'm in love with inlay, and the grip looks like something that'll really grow on me. Plus, this may sound superficial, but I like the idea of going on stage with that; I'm in a band that's set to play a shit ton of shows this year and I think that'll really add to our aesthetic. Idk, just me though.
>>
>>61860180
Not really, most thin necks are reinforced, and all necks, w/exception of most classicals, have steel truss rods. I've not seen too many on quality instruments go bad, it does happen, but it's usually a bad piece of lumber or neglect on it's owners part(storage, humidity, ect.).

just listen to classic rock radio for a day and pick songs you like. Though to be honest there's a ton to pull from and you don't have to choose something everybody knows. Just remember playing classic rock is almost completely about having fun, just like playing jimmy buffet it should be as relaxed as possible. Try to get people to sing along as much as you can. You have decades of music to choose from.

so learn some of their songs. people will probably be impressed if you can nail some zeppelin songs. they're not very difficult for guitar, but you need to find a drummer who can nail bonham's stuff, that's the hard stuff for zeppelin

What determines the string spacing on most guitars? I mean both my guitars have the same diameter, but their string spacing difference is huge.

Which guitars normally have huge string spacings? It's so good for chordal playing.
>>
>>61862109
the nut and the bridge
>>
>>61862109
8 strings usually have a bigger string spacing.
>>
>>61862180
>>61862146

Do strats normally have larger spacings? I want a 6 string. My Ibanez with its Ibanez Edge is just nice, could be slightly wider though.
>>
>>61860061

I'd just go for an RG3550 or 550. but in general, yeah, you want to spend that extra money. the difference between a 150-200$ guitar and a 4-500$ guitar is like the difference between a 500$ guitar and a 1200$guitar
>>

>that handle

Just buy a RG655.
>>
>>61862198
I didn't feel like it, maybe there is but it seems minimal.
>>
>>61862109
The shred guitars generally have wider necks with more space between the strings, if that helps.
>>
>>61862298

Man maybe I should buy a Strat. But fuck 1299.. That's gotta wait a few years.

I reckon the small radius would make it sweet for chordal works.
>>
>>61862198
mos guitars will list the string spacing or at least the nut width. Go by the numbers and compare to your own nut. Some manufacturers will offer the same guitar with different width options.
>>
>>61862340
But they also have flat fretboard, I want something curvy to do easier barre chords.
>>
>>61862386
your best bet is to get a guitar with a 12" radius. it seems to be the best of both worlds, curvy enough to be comfortable for chords, flat enough for solo single line stuff.
>>
>>61862346
Don't Gibson/Gretsch have an even smaller radius ? Or is it just because the neck is bigger ?
>>
>>61862346
just get an off brand, there's like a hundred that make strats with the same radius.
>inb4 rondo shill
As far as I know the sx ones are flatter radius than fenders.
>>
>>61862346
Just buy a MiM for half the price if you want one so bad.
>>
>>61862430
idk about gretsch but Gibson is flatter for sure
>>
>>61862430
gibson is 12" radius
fender does 9.5" radius, the older fenders go down to 7.5" radius, which is insanely curved
>>
>>61862416

12".. I know carvins are 14", but heck I'm not sure if I wanna order a guitar and ship it for 116 USD, only to find out I don't like it and ship it back for another 100+ dollars

>>61862443

So I'm probably gonna buy pic related to sit on top of my amp always on. I want to get a nice SVT tone but the amp I have now is a 80's Ampeg B2 and it is pretty lifeless. It has good frequency response but the boosts tend to introduce noise, especially with the horn in my 4x10 on. I was considering a digital solution but I sort of realized I would never use 90% of the effects from a unit. I found some good mods for the BDI21 to bypass the built in notch filter and bandpass, so I hopefully won't have to turn it off and screw with my EQ between songs too much. I know it's kinda stupid to void the warranty of such a cheap pedal($30) with mods, but the pedal looks really easy to repair. For guitar I wouldn't really consider analog as I know I'd just get more and more pedals.

I recently got a single humbucker guitar, and even though according to my multimeter control panel and strings are grounded, with high gain the buzzing still changes when I touch the strings.

Cavity shielding the guitar seems overkill with this considered.

>>61864135

>>
>>61865671
The advantage is that you can get smoother textures by eliminating the pick scrape when doing eco picking.
It's like Guthrie Govan's two handed arpeggios, dude probably has no problem picking them but he chooses to tap them instead so they sound less aggressive.
>>
>>61865671
Not really. If you are shredding I can imagine it, and economy tends to work well for a sudden fast arpeggio, but I dunno if you can even call that economy picking. If you can play arpeggios with an even rhythm you're good to go.

Has anyone memorized all the natural and harmonic modes in all keys by heart? I'm somewhere in the middle of this process and it's been much less overwhelming than I thought.

I imagine improvisation must be cool when you can combine different modes and the various different feelings they evoke together on the fly.
>>
>>61866576
Honestly I don't believe in bass distortion without a blend knob. You totally lose the bottom end when you distort. That being said it's totally fine if the song takes the loss of the bass role into account. Does your amp have a way to blend fx with clean? Or can your board do that with the HM-2 through something else?

Are you suggesting that knowing scales doesn't help with improvisation? Or did you get the impression that I was talking about just playing scales up and down? I don't really understand what you're trying to express, other than some vaguely elitist attitude.

The distortion channel of the BC-1 has a blend with the clean channel, and the HM-2 is in a parallel FX loop of the BC-1. Bass = Retained.

the reverse occurred. i tried to get into jazz as a drummer and a guitarist as they are all technically good, however, the music is so horrendous and boring i just can't take it. i would almost rather listen to buckethead run through his latest scale noodling.

i find much more value in old blues , tho not as technically proficient in many ways - is so much better. listening to someone like skip james or john lee hooker from their early days is amazing how well it holds up.

lightening fast scales and key changes of jazz could not be more boring. its like watching the movie whiplash , they all are grotesquely proficient but musically i couldnt care less

cool, the BC-1 seems great for putting pedals on double duty for guitar and bass. Plus you need something like that to play the bassline to sleepy head.

I see. While key and scale hopping are a big part of the appeal of jazz, I have to agree that there's a rather common tendency among jazz artists to over-develop those two to a point where, instead of contributing to the overall tonal richness the whole ordeal becomes not more than a circle jerk about who can noodle the fastest and change keys the most.

What's the point of variation if the listener isn't given enough time to emotionally react to it?
>>
>>61867379
i will say this about jazz though - live jazz can be pretty awesome when done well, but somehow loses all flavor recorded.

maybe its the crispness of the drums and sound of a standing acoustic bass or something live that is good.

also, i'll never be as fast as those guys any way

Well it's not like the principles vary from source to source. Music notation is really simple stuff to grasp, the hard part is memorizing and becoming fast at creating the association between the right notes and correct piano keys or guitar frets, and that's something you become good at only with constant practice.

don't get too caught up on cabs, man. If you have a graphic EQ you really only need to worry about features and specs. Try looking at what's going used near you and looking up the specs of those cabs. Frequency response, wattage rating and resistance are the big ones to keep in mind. Pretty much the only thing you need to watch out for you can't get from the manufacturer's website is durability.

> Marshall MG10CD 10 W
This is the only one I've played but it's a reap champ. Does pretty much everything and you just gotta love the EQ scheme. One knob, contour. Assuming you have a tone knob on your guitar you can get so many tones you won't believe it. This amp is so fucking great, seriously. Not to mention the cleanest clean in the biz. Not one of those goddamn tubey cleans. The overdrive channel goes from the most subtle dirt to full out metal. It doesn't strip your harmonics until you really crank it. The thing is loud and usable as a bass amp, albeit not a 5 string.

tldr; buy it it's like $20 used

Guitars from 25-30 years ago with super thin one piece necks can have stability issues, but nothing on this side of the year 1995 should.

Gibson is generally 12", Fender is 9.5". Some of the older Fender stuff (like my strat) is 7.25".

>>61863554
It's a pretty minimal difference.

I would, but not as a replacement. Use it as an alternative when you need a cleaner sound or are playing lines with a lot more string changes at speed.

I kind of agree and kind of disagree. Cabinets are one of THE most important parts of your rig. At the same time a lot of cabinets outside of Marshall, Mesa, and Orange are great.

His tone is a Marshall JCM800 scooped right out running in parallel with a Soldano SLO100 providing the midrange. You could get a similar approach on a 'budget' using a Peavey 5150 and a Marshall JCM2000 DSL50/100.

Guys I think we should change these threads to Musician General

I think that way it wouldn't always be the same 3 people wanking over gear. Plus, musicians all have a lot to learn from each other.

Can anyone get behind this?
>>
>>61871189
no pls
Seriously no man, we would get shitposters like the keyboard pleb.
>>
>>61871189
been put forward before
only reason stuff devolves into gear wankery is that gear is objective most of the time and music creation is not. it's a harder topic to talk about and requires more vocabulary to accurately get across a point or idea.
every attempt in the past to re-engineer the general has resulted in fracturing what we have and causing turmoil for a few threads.
>>
>>61871258

but mate, other than more gear posts, there are literally no downsides to having more musicians in here discussing music. I think it add a lot more discussion about actual music, songwriting, etc, and not just gear gear gear
>>
>>61871189
>>61871311
Idea was put forward months ago. This is a guitar thread. If you want a thread for x instrument or y discussion go make a general for it. There's literally zero reason to change this thread to fit what you want.

>>61871277
dang, thats sad dude :/
>>
>>61871387
okay, if thats how you all feel than I'll drop it. I just figured that since these threads are notoriously horrible, y'all might want to make an effort to make them at least halfway decent

why have several tiny shitty threads for every instrument in the book when you could have one big thread where everyone talks about making music?

>>
>>61871469
these threads go from shit to good, sure the ratio isn't 1:1, but we do have good threads, and even if a thread is bad on the whole, discussion in it can still be decent in pockets.
Like it or not this thread is what we make it. if you wanna see discussion about music and influences and so on, you have to start it, encourage it, make sure it's valid to people here.

>>61871469
>I just figured that since these threads are notoriously horrible
Only during this time. They're great threads off-peak, the shit posting dies right down.

>why have several tiny shitty threads for every instrument in the book when you could have one big thread where everyone talks about making music?
Because /gg/ bump limits several times a day anyway. You ever used /dbt/ over on /o/? It moves to fast now that discussion has pretty much evaporated and the threads are borderline useless.

You'll turn /gg/ into a shit posting hole that bump limits in two hours.

This too >>61871530. There have been plenty of great threads, trying to change the threads because you only visit during shitpost o clock isn't our problem.

>if you wanna see discussion about music and influences and so on, you have to start it, encourage it, make sure it's valid to people here.
Truer words couldn't have been spoken. If you want that sort of discussion make it. Inviting in an army of new shit posters and irrelevant content will just turn the threads to perpetual shit like several other generals on this site.

goddamn i think i'm retarded, i need help. so i got the amp that i ordered (hot rod deluxe iii) and the tubes came separately.

i watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuJaCVldFq0
which shows how to replace the tubes on the same exact amp i have. the first two he puts in went pretty easily for me, but the last 3 pre-amp tubes just will not go in the slots they're supposed to go in. i line them up and try to wiggle them in and they just won't go in/stay.

so i put them in as best as i could, they were a bit loose, and turned on the amp. it played great for like 10 seconds, then i heard a sort of pop, and then i couldn't hear anything out of the amp.

what am i doing wrong? why won't the tubes go in like it shows in the video? none of the prongs seem too bent either

it might be a sign of a warped bowing neck.
that would be one fucking pain in the neck(lel)
Anyways you could attempt to adjust the action and if maybe you are lucky you could adjust the truss rod but I doubt it on acoustics. warping usually comes from string tension so make sure you have the right strings on it.

nvm fixed it, just had to push the tubes in harder i guess (i was afraid of damaging them).

it sounds fucking great i'm stoked
>>
>>61872467
There's a key in the center of the big octal power tubes to make sure they fall into the socket correctly.

The preamp tubes are mini 9 pins. There is a gap between pins 1 and 9 to orient the tube with the socket. Take a look at the socket before ramming these in and bending the pins.

The pop sound could be lots of things. If you have no sound at all, you've likely smoked a fuse.

>>61873211
Raising the action will make it harder to play and won't really solve the problem
Check the curve on your neck, it needs to be straight or slightly curved. If the neck is very curved or worst, back-bowed, you need to adjust the truss-rod if you have one.
If you don't, well, not many options. You can try upping or dropping the tuning but that's pretty much it.

aight, I had a feeling it was that but I didn't want you to get glass and blood all over the damn amp :3

>>61873780
It's all good. When you work with these enough they can trick you when going by feel. It's pretty easy to kill a tube straightening the pins back out.
>>
everything I can check with a multimeter including the bridge is grounded. I have hum cancelling pickups. There's still buzz(not him) when I'm not touching the strings. what the fuck? I thought I would only get hum that didn't change from contact with the strings if everything is wired right?

I'm pretty sure it was the same one the whole time though I'm sure it got some repairs along the way. Honestly though the key to Rickenbacker tone is just 24.74" or less scale length and super low output pickups. Pretty much any guitar will sound like one with that.

I'm translating this that you have hum that goes away when you contact the strings.

Well, that's how guitars work. The strings are grounding you. Your body emits enough emf that when amplified many times, it becomes audible. If you want the hum to be less without string contact then shield the pickup and control cavities. Or you could try a noise gate pedal.

Question guys.

I want to start recording stuff in my room. I have an amp, but some people have been telling me to just use one of those axeFX things and do a direct feed into my computer.

>>61875671
it's better to use all your fingers. you can get away with barring it with your index but it's ultimately sloppy and you won't be as fast transitioning to different chords. using all your fingers feels tighter to me. you do need to barre it if you want to do those fast sus4 movements though

Go for a Shure SM57 and an Interface at first. I own an AxeFX II XL and I only use direct recording for demos and drafting.

For 'real' recordings if I'm using the AxeFX as a preamp I'll output to a tube power amp, cabinet, and mic it up.

Dude you know how much those things cost right. I could buy 2 MIA guitars and still have leftover for a MIK.
>>
>>61878026
If you've already got a good amplifier and cabinet, an SM57 is $99 and a 2i2 is $149. You can get studio quality guitar recordings with that setup, but a HUGE amount of it is skill not the equipment you're using.

Recording sound is a totally different skill set and takes a lot of practice and a LOT of time to get good at.

Also this >>61878035 you don't really "just" go and buy an AxeFX without a solid understanding of what it is and why you want and/or need it. It's a $2500 modelling preamp.

not really but you can get close. Pretty amazing that people still want these for the "tone." Just like how people say you can tell the difference between SS and nickel frets. It's almost as if whenever something works better by default it's got bad tone. Fucking placebo polish.
>>
>>61878268
it was only a matter of time before somebody got digital effects right
>>
>>61878268
There's basically no reason to buy an AX8. You could get a mint used AxeFX II for the same or slightly more. Considering the AX8 has a THIRD of the DSP power that an AxeFX II has it just makes no sense to not spend the tiny bit extra.

>>61878317
You buy an SM57 because it's the industry standard microphone used on countless of album recordings. If you don't have $99 to buy a microphone, keep saving.
>>
>>61878128
I do what the fuck I want fyi

>>61873300

If you really want clean headroom I wouldn't go with Fenders then. Their best sound is that crunchy clean-ish that you get at high volumes imo. A good JC would be your best option.

Mannnn their company's commitment to tonewood is cringey. I can't imagine good value from those guys. I feel bad cuz I'm not supposed to say this stuff on new bass day. Well, I bet the guitar is really nice anyway even if it's expensive. How's the passive MM sound?
>>
>>61878329
they might sound different just from the fact they can't be fully intonated

I have a Tele with standard six piece saddles, I'm not a big fan of these either, they feel too flimsy to me and are a pain in the ass when changing strings because I always manage to knock one or two out of the radius. I plan on upgrading to something just not sure what yet.

they don't come with the block style standard? just those crappy bent metal things? you can buy replacement saddles cheap. My sx tele has the block saddles and they work good. My tele is string through though so the pressure on them is greater though. If you're top loading you might need to shim the neck so you can raise the saddles and get better break angle. Or just use heavier strings.

Damn dude, I'm sorry your guitar needs so much work. I don't think the new saddles will change the risk of messing it up during a string change. You just have to be careful I guess. Still, I like it better than a tune-o-matic that you can't change the radius on.

$2500 is for an XL+. $1500 is about what you'll usually pay for a II. Like I said, it has SO much extra power you'd be mad to buy an AX-8 over it.

>it seems more user friendly
They're literally exactly the same to use in Axe-Edit.

Either way, someone who doesn't know what an AxeFX is or why they're useful doesn't need to buy one. A mic and interface would make more sense for now.
