Previous thread: >>62003205
first for let's all get angry at other people's opinions
seriously thinking of buying an electric tenor guitar
I guess people were saying the newer ones from Fender could be muddy because they're essentially Gibson-style humbuckers with 250K pots. As for real ones and copies, they're supposedly warm but with more clarity than Gibson-style humbuckers. In the end, it's all subjective, really.
I really like them, they're a lot closer to single coils than humbuckers in tone. Yeah, some copies are just humbuckers with a silly cover but others actually only have the pole pieces where they're shown. Kinda like a p-bass but the coils extend into air coils usually. Just don't get one if you want a humbucker, there's not much in common.
I hope everyone knows that last thread only included rondo hating crusaders. I can't believe the people who despise rondo music want to bring it up just because >XD 4chan trolling REKT

Are Ibanez Talmans gud?
Someone is selling a surf green(?) near my place for AU$300.
I'm pretty sure I can haggle the guy for 250 or lower.
It has a 3 lipstick Kent Armstrong pickup config and finish like pic related.
Is it a good price and are they all MIJ?
Anyone got a variax guitar?
Because you can set your DD-7 to a drone frequency by creating a feedback loop
I have a Gibson Silverburst that was given to me by my dad for graduating Highschool
Been playing since I was 2, but have been taking it serious for about 7 years now
Fav guitarist is Adam Jones
fender is releasing some limited offset teles and they look pretty sick.
top kek, it's like it's 1961 again
Also presented at the NAMM, this flashy telecaster that is:
>including 38 sapphires, 20 feet of 18K rose gold wire inlay, 12 square inches of 18K rose gold 1 mm sheet inlay.
· 1,005 diamonds
· 325 natural pearls
· 8K rose gold solid Fender Logo
Noob here, what setting should I have on my amp for this loop?
looks pretty cool, but seriously
[spoiler]why did they make this[/spoiler]
Like as in an empty cabinet with no speakers?
It's actually cheapest to make one yourself from my experience, you do get the occasional unloaded cab on used sites but that isn't too often depending where you're located.
top kek, the fact that it all has nothing to do with its sound is hilarious, pure kitsch, they'd better make something innovative and original instead of constant exploitation of things that were invented not by them more than half a century ago
>taking the "tone metal" meme seriously
It's all about ass dead dicks m8
I belong to the cathegory of people who actually think that a heavy bridge with roller saddles and a zero fret are what can seriously change your tone, not some buzzword woods or body materials.
I need some expert level electric guitar parts to learn that are -not- heavy metal or even remotely close to it.
I agree that a zero fret changes the tone of those notes, I don't think there's much up for debate there, but I think as long as a bridge doesn't have serious flex to it, more likely the vibrations are going to transfer too well to the rest of the body for it to make a difference. The vibrations are going to deaden faster the lighter the instrument is. I've always thought the only considerations in tone for a fretted note are the string gauge, length, pickup placement, pickups, and weight of the instrument. Obviously only for electric.
Thinking of buying either pic related or a mustang, both are aesthetically pleasing to me and I feel that the hi flyer caters to a more melodic driven play style.
My crap so far. I need a pedal board. Any suggestions for stuff that doesn't have a name brand plastered all over it?
>The vibrations are going to deaden faster the lighter the instrument is
the lighter the instrument is the more resonant it is (to a certain extent obviously, we're not talking about a 100mm wide body). Many small instruments I've heard actually sound "big", thanks to their pickups and hardware.
>Any suggestions for stuff that doesn't have a name brand plastered all over it?
Woah, the moderation here is outrageous. I got banned and my posts deleted for "offtopic", but one of the posts to which I replied is still here: >>62017842
And my other post was only partially offtopic, as I was explaining that the guitar is full of jewels not because of aesthetics but because of opulence. Think of the average pimpmobile, it's tasteless as fuck but it gets the point across that it was expensive. Same with these ridiculous guitars.
They generally let the Custom Shop guys each do a crazy, out-there design in the way that concept cars that never see the road are shown at auto shows.
I think ESP or Ibanez or something did it this year, too. The Anderton's NAMM videos showed some in addition to the Fenders. I just don't remember which one.
generally speaking, any time you could use a major chord you can get away with a major 7th. For example, in any major key the I, IV, V chords are major (so in C, for example, C, F and G). You can get away with a major 7th on any of these. In a minor key it'd be III, VI, and VII (C, F, and G again in Am, the relative minor of Cmaj). Dominanth 7th chords are a little trickier. Rule of thumb is to only use them if you're about to resolve the progression, so on chords that have strong tendencies to move towards I. V is the chord most commonly made a dominant 7th, in my experience. Sometimes you'll see a VII or ii made a dom7. Listen to/look at jazz songs. There's 7ths fucking everywhere. You'll figure it out pretty quick.
I posted this in a different thread but if there are any Elliott Smith fans in here who would like to tell me what they think of this that would be cool.
I'll take requests too. Elliott Smith, Dylan, Cohen, Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead, The National, Conor Oberst/Bright Eyes. If I know it I'll play it.
I'd love to try one because my band uses A LOT of different and outlandish tunings. But don't you need some fancy gear to take advantage of all the fancy shit? I've never been clear on how they really work. And I know they have software so you can edit the tunings and the models, but would I be able to get NST two steps down? Or AEADF#A? Or open F# minor?
> 
you sound like a walking stereotype. Are you by any chance in a band called Potsy? There's this band by that name in my area that has a guitarist that plays a Silverburst and tries so very fucking hard to be Adam Jones.
yeah, you can customize the shit out of it but it turns out you can't have more than 2 notes per string. But you can customize tunings and imaginary pickup placement, etc etc etc.
Little family photo action going on here. Resurrected my Gibson back from the dead after 7 years. Walrus Audio Phoenix is on the way. And probably that new Echoplex delay coming out. And, of course, a memory man (big box) if I can find one. Tinnitus is still hanging around. I'd call the hotline but I always get the machine. How the hell can I leave a message after the beep if it never stops? FUCK.
can you not copy paste the same post over and over? what's the point? you're not asking any questions. If you think your introducing a subject, you're wring. Your gear is boring, and the only thing remarkable about your picture is that you have a lot of it.
Let's play some /o/ tier game. You need to name a guitar or bass guitar and its car equivalent. Then explain why it's the "X car" of guitars.
I'll start: Warwick Corvette is the Mercedes SLS of bass guitars: great craftsmanship and attention to detail, luxurious, German, expensive, high performing, precise, refined and stunningly well finished.
You don't drive the SLS, the SLS drives YOU.
You don't play the Corvette, the Corvette plays YOU.
Nope. And most people here would disagree with you. But please, for posterity, post a pic of all your exciting gear.>>62022220
The big one is a big muff distorter/compressor. It's EHX's big box o e that came out in the late 70s. The smaller one is a Black Russian.
One of my favorite guitars ever. Lipstick tubes tone is amazing.
Bugera repair here. Update, still busted.
The amp runs fine for a minute then the "smart" automatic computer biasing decides to take over and tries to blow up the fuse/power tubes/my house.
Epiphone P93 Riviera
1994 Epiphone Les Paul std
Gibson ES-335 Dot w/ bigsby
Gibson Firebird iii
Fender Jazzmaster std
Early epiphone models - cannot remember the names at all
Playing for 6 Years now.
Fave Guitars are desired
No projects as of yet.
Aspiring session musician.
The Jazzmaster is the AMC Pacer of guitars:
American, tried too hard to be innovative and was a failure when it came out, now it's highly sought after by hipsters. Design issues. Goofy looking. Available in meme green and other surfer tier colors.
The Jaguar is probably the AMC Gremlin, a bit less quirky but more or less the same thing.
There's an IC in the Infinium models that works with I'm assuming cathode voltages while relaying adjustments to individual bias voltages to the four power tubes. It's not technically a computer, but close enough imo.
I've seen similar convoluted biasing in H&K Tubemeisters, Ampeg SVT Classics, and Blackstar HTs. I'm not a fan.
These things are there to dumb tube changing down and keep people out of the amps. They make troubleshooting a lot more difficult for us tech types though. I'll have to trace the power amp board.
I don't know about f "series". Considering an F-150 is a totally excessively powerful vehicle that is primarily bought by those who don't need it, whereas a telecaster has nearly the minimum features you can put in an electric guitar and is practical for anybody. You might compare it to some sort of Toyota small pickup.

Not that guy, but I'll answer anyways:
That's only because trucks have grown a lot. Back in the day a F-150 wasn't luxurious and it was a half ton truck in the literal sense. And even the most basic of Toyotas have luxuries nowadays. Besides, the Ford is American like the Telecaster.
i was thinking more about the older ford pickups, not so much the new ones. the older ones are stripped down basic trucks that served their purpose and did it well.
my first thought was what you said though, a honda or toyata sedan, but i wanted to stick with american brands.
kek, he probably drives a Prius. Let's try to figure out what's the Prius of guitars.
It needs to be horrid, liked by lefty cucks, project a cuck image and pretend to be eco-friendly when it's just contrived.
Not like there are many better alternatives if you want to buy American.
What about some chevy? BTW asian vehicles tend to have this boring appliance-like look which the tele doesn't.
I was more thinking Toyota small pickups cuz you see a lot more of the old ones kicking around than American pickups. They seem to have survived longer. Yeah a tele isn't exactly a new car with satellite radio. It doesn't even have contours.
Do you live away from the US by any chance? Pretty sure most US Toyotas rusted out, but maybe I'm wrong (I'm not American). Here in my country Toyotas are way more common than American trucks.
BTW I'm trying to figure out where the Les Paul fits. At first I thought corvette (middle age crisis and stuff like that) but the corvette is affordable.
>I was more thinking Toyota small pickups cuz you see a lot more of the old ones kicking around than American pickups.
huh? I literally see Ford trucks from the 70s and 80s everyday and zero Toyotas from the same period
Jackson King V or Randy Rhoads:
>Impractical for most people (although I love those things, they're great for classical position)
>Embodiment of the 80s
>Favored by cokeheads that can afford them
The P-bass is the Honda civic of basses. It doesn't have standout looks or performance but it's cheap to repair and lasts a lifetime. You can find anyone from a no name band/poorfag to a world touring group/CEO driving one.
>Only difference is p-basses stopped being cheap
>tfw this comparison only works with off-brand basses
or like this, which is also korean like them btw
Sounds pretty close. In fact I seem to recall someone calling the LP Black Beauty "the Cadillac of guitars"
What's the Tesla Motors of guitars?
Cadilac sounds about right. They are a pain to repair, break down easy, cost way more than they're worth, bug a small part of you still wants one. They're instantly recognizable as high end.
To me it's more like an American muscle car, because of the punch it packs. That's also the reason why I disagree with you when you talk about performance.
Wew lad, I was thinking "what car could be the Bongo" and the Tesla seems pretty close, only that the Tesla isn't ugly.
Yeah that pretty much sums it up.
Variax/game changer/reflex. I guess there's really no car that's particularly versatile though. In any case.
what car is the danelectro double cutaway?
Tesla tries to make their shit look like, you know, CARS. Not some Hot-Wheels "I'M SO FUTURISTIC" crap.
I like PT cruisers though, specially with some retro mods. That said, my favorite is the Prowler.
If the Yugo was American, it would likely be it.
>made of cardboard
>made recycling stuff from elsewhere (in the Yugo, mechanical parts, in the Dano, lipstick canisters)
>I like PT cruisers though,
please get off my internet and never return
What about a Ram truck?
>they have become expensive
>pack a big punch
i'm at a loss of what car is the equivalent to a strat
it would have to be extremely versatile, has been around for a long time, and has to be one of the most sold models in history
i don't know what fits that. toyota corolla fits the 'most sold' and is pretty versatile, but idk, doesn't feel like it fits.
Ford mustang. Some are fast as shit and driven by pro drivers. Some are buckets of piss and turds. Been around forever, American icon.
Classic rock and roll doesn't exist without either.
I don't know about most people, but I picture a standard modern sedan. Like a new Honda Accord. Probably doesn't fit a strat, though. What guitar would an Accord be?
Are you the guy who wants SS frets?
Chill man, it's just a one-off game. Would you rather talk about Prussian Blue?
You've got a point there, although I think classic rock and roll predates the Mustang.
>You've got a point there, although I think classic rock and roll predates the Mustang.
mustang came out in '64
that's right around the time where there's a pretty clear divide between what i'd consider 'oldie' 50s music like eddie cochran rockabilly stuff and 'classic rock' like the beatles and the stones
I thought you meant stuff like Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley when you said classic rock.
The Beatles and the Stones are the kind of rock that wasn't played with telecasters for the most part. Hollow bodies, teles, etc.
I'm thinking hot rod. It also needs to embody rock and roll. Must be some car out of a road movie, like pic related.
top kek, feeling horribly embarrassed right now
for some reason I thought early miatas were doritos
isn't that too generic? How about some Killer or other meme brand?
american model, seems a bit like a copout
The stingray is the corvette stingray or guitars. It has the same name :^^^^)
lel, you're right
I don't know why I didn't think of it.
Another one: Tele with b-bender. Probably a redneck mud truck, or a 70s trans am imo. Pic related.
Buy a pick and learn to play Peace Sells. Disregard the snobs saying picks are for plebs. Picks are fine if you're after the picked sound.
Try Rosenrot for fingerstyle.
Was my first thought too, but then I thought "it's not chinese"
kek, might as well drink piss
Let's test the hivemind. I'll get a trip so I can confirm if the meme magic works and you guys go with the one I'm thinking of.
Got the OR15. Most stoked! Got the head and cab (is a 2x12 loaded w/ Greenbacks) for $450 total. Dude even drove an asston to get up to around where I lived to sell it. Craigslist is the bomb. Back at school now, unfortunately, so I can't crank the preamp section and get dat tasty saturation. Any recommendations for an attenuator? Also:
1969 SG Standard
200x Washburn ES-335 copy (headstock in pic)
200x Washburn D12SZ (Zebrawood back and sides, solid spruce top, a nice budget acoustic)
1975 Guild G212
1974 Rickenbacker 4001
1978 neck/2004 body Jazz Bass
Orange OR15 + Avatar 2x12
Fender Rumble 15 ($20 off CL, woo)
Warwick Streamer 5 in P/J config
Ampeg Portaflex of some sort
It's not a dorm so much as an apartment. If I was just in a room off a hallway I'd totally have my crappy amp here. Half the reason I tried so hard to get nice housing this year was so I could bring nice music gear! I totally see where you're coming from, though.
I second this. When I was in college I just kept my Yamaha acoustic. When I was in a school townhouse I kept my full gear. You should just have a crappy practice amp or maybe something better if you can keep it in a closet all the time.
Yeah, it's technically a dorm but in an apartment style layout. Locked front door, locked door into the individual rooms.
Basically did what this guy >>62027104
did, had my crap guitar up here the past few years, now have my nicer stuff since I am living somewhere secure.
Sides obliterated. You may not know it if you haven't had much contact with blink 182, but it's musically the same as "All The Small Things"
Get a tab for that and you're good to go.
Thanks for the laffs though, I didn't know that stuff. Seems like the dude made a shitload of parody songs.
I was impressed by this one:
The guy sounds really close to Hoppus
I saw Lamb in the OP and figured it wouldn't hurt to ask :^)
Thanks lads. Have this dank meme in appreciation for your effort.
I use them on my 7 and on my brown guitar when I'm not trying out Elixirs. They're quite possibly my favorite strings ever besides the nanowebs, but since my hands tend to sweat a lot they get old after about 2-3 weeks while I've had some pairs of elixirs last me at least 2 months.
I use them on my bass and fenders on my guitar and both brands are great, but you guys sound like total shills.
I want to get a Tele as my first guitar, but is there a manufacturer in between Squier and Fender? Squiers sound poor in comparison to Fenders, but I don't know if I'm ready to drop £450+ on a Fender (and I'd need to get an ampnon top of that).
Surprisingly good pedal, though I'd say my favorite bass OD is a Green Rhino, that thing kills with the 100HZ knob
I remember when I used to have a ton of pedals, then I came to realize how much that takes away from your playing. If I were playing guitar, I'd go with just a drive, fuzz, and a delay and let my instrument and amp choice determine more of my playing
Songsterr is a good site to start learning songs you like, just find some stuff under the easy section and just learn stuff you like from there. Also start fingerstyle and then learn to use a pick once you've gotten comfortable with your fingers just to have both skills down and then learn thumb playing or slap if that interest you from there
Those inlays and binding on the neck are awesome
Yeah, Prosteels 45-105, sound great and hold their tone very very long, much better than most brands I've tried for my sound
T40s are pretty cool basses
Those basses are sexy as fuck
If you're just bedroom playing, you won't notice much difference in the tone of those two brands yet desu but if you really want to go inbetween, than go for a higher end Squier like the Classic Vibe ones or somethin, but I'd say a regular Squier would be a fine starter guitar
the G&L asat, tribute series(budget series). Leo Fender ran G&L before he died.
pic related + Peavey Stereo chorus 212, ditto looper
Probably going to pick up a MiM Strat in the future
Also thinking about starting a pedalboard, right now working with an old digitech multieffect board
that's a good pickup configuration. I guess even Leo knew the tele neck was crap.
honestly it's slightly less hideous in person, the lighting made it look a bit dark
the guitar I drew on was $120 so I wasn't too hesitant about it. Didn't realize how fast sharpie would wear out.

Douglas WNO is back in stock and idk man, an archtop is always tempting.
I love the big fender headstock's. The Paul on the other hand is pretty ugly. Plays great but that natural wood finish just reminds me of my grand parents house. Wood paneling everywhere.
I've been reading more or less forever, so I can't remember exactly.
With my own students, I start reading from the beginning, so learning dots ties in with learning the instrument.
