    :bigbrain2 So, my first electric guitar was a Fender Strat, and when I first held it, I thought all guitars after this would be heavy... My next guitar was a Les Paul: It was WAY lighter than my Strat! I have eight electrics now, and my Strat is still the heaviest of all my guitars! As far as...
  3. The Guitar Rack
    So, I plan on getting a new guitar soon, and I'm really torn between 2 companys. First off, I've been playing on-and-off for about a year now and I really wanted to upgrade my guitar. I really would like a Les Paul and the only ons in my buget is the Epiphone model for about $400 and the Agile...

    This guy was born a Les Paul Deluxe and after years of playing and many, many alterations, it ended up looking like this. A great player. $385 brand new with case when I was a little guy. Thanks Mom & Dad :tu:

    :icon_head Now I have that FNM song in my head! I love Les Pauls and am warming up to the Tele I just bought. Semi-hollows are great too mind you. As you can see I'm new here, so still learning the ropes. I hope to make some new friends and maybe find some old ones as well. I think my Peavey...

    Ok so I'm just starting out playing guitar, and now it's time to change my strings for the first time. 1 - How do I change them? 2 - How do I know I have fitted them correct? 3- Which strings do I buy? I have a Slash custom Epiphone Les Paul. I took the E string out, just by losening the...
  11. The Guitar Rack
    Hey hey! I was just browsing through some guitars on the web today, and I was supprised by how little I actually know about guitars themselves. Basically, i'm just curious to know things about the quality of guitars, what makes them better etc. etc. so for example, I'd love to know what woods...

    Hey guys I am looking for a new axe and would like your opinions. I really like the LTD Alexi Laiho signature model, but am not sure it is worth over a grand to me. I am not buying it for the name. Don't get me wrong I like COB and Alexi is a great guitarist but that is not why I am looking at...

    ...glad to be here. Glad to be anywhere. Started tinkering with guitars back in the 70s, played with lots of bands until about the late 80s or so and then got a respectable job. Played through Strats, Les Pauls, a few SGs, some Carvins, and some guitars of my own invention. Used transistor...

    I am planning on buying either a SH11 or PAF pickup tonight to get rid of the stock pickups on my ibanez strat gsa60. My question is since I keep hearing that the SH11 sounds very bright when put through les pauls and strats and its almost to bright for good distortion but then again I hear the...

    Do any of you guys know with what the sound is being generated that gives the Creedence sound??...What i mean is, is it a type of MOD, or is it the sound of the type of guitar they are using?
