So I purchased my first "Real" acoustic the other day. It is a 2004 Taylor 314ce 30th anniversary edition. I bought it used for a great deal. I love the guitar to death. And it sounds perfect, until you plug it in. When I plug it in and play, there is a slight distorted sound to it. It's like something is rattling ever so lightly causing this sound. I've tightened everything, restrung it, adjusted the neck, even felt around inside on the electronics and I've found NOTHING. I do not know what to do next besides take it to a shop. I don't play live and it's really not a huge deal, but to a tone snob like me, I cannot live with it like this.
Here's a pic. Sorry it's a crappy cell phone picture. Since this, i've tore it down and waxed everyhting on it.
I've been using auqaphor for 4 days and washing it in the shower in the morning with a gentle soap. It started peeling really bad this morning so I discontinued the auqaphor and not im hitting mine with Eucerin lotion. Seems to be okay except for the random colored skin flakes all over my shirt.
I have a LTD MH-1000 with a Floyd 1000 series on it and it's awesome. It my first floyd and I have no problems with it at all. Take the time to read and understand how they work and you will be golden. I set mine up myself.
Hey guys I haven't been on here in forever. But here's my deal. I have a beautiful PRS Custom 22 10 top hardtail. A guy wants to trade me a 1974 les paul deluxe for it. Now all I do is pretty much play rock and metal. I'm not sure how the small humbuckers would do in the LP. I've always wanted a real LP and I guess this is my chance. But I do love the crap out of my PRS. Im torn. The guys said the serial number is 507xxx which seems to check out as much as I could find.
I come here for advice. What would you do? This is rough.
I just started using it and FL Studio. So far it's not too hard. Im getting the hang of it. I used a Southern Classic by 8ball and MJG - Mr. Big as a sample and made a really rough song. Let me know what you think. It's in my profile
Keep in mind i play guitar, not keyboard, and I know nothing about synths and samples and electronic music. Thanks guys.
I purchased this thing about 3 months ago. I paid over 800 for it. It is in perfect condition no scracthes, blemishes or anything. The action is set low and I have it tuned to Drop D. This guitar really isn't for me and I am wanting to buy a jeep so I need to sell it. My Price is $675 plus shipping. I will ship this thing anywhere I dont care as long as you pay for shipping.

Look at google sketchup. It's a free program and you can get soooo many models off of Google. I use autocad for a living but im not sure how to make a CAD drawing for a CNC machine. However alot of these sketch up files are to scale so you could get all of your mesurements off of it and put it into your CAD program.
Got a new MH-1000 today in the trans. black. This thing is soooo badass. The quilt matches up perfectly and the floyd rose is not the nightmare everyone makes it out to be. It came in E but i already tuned it to D and fixed the bridge height. Everyone that is scared of a Floyd, don't be they aren't that bad. I am going to do the 18v mod to the EMG's tonight.
Oh and theres a pic of my PRS too it's decently new (to me.)
I;m using all JJ pre-amps in my Marshall...but i assume they're a bit better in there to "boost" the amp a bit more...whilst the XXX will already have a nice amount of amp distortion..
i have a spare Groove Tube and Sovtek i could pop in the V1 slot...but idk
Like you said man, i think the Marshall can use all of the extra help it can get so JJ's all around will be cool. When i put all JJ's in mine it reminded me of my 5150. The highs were really harsh and there was just this weird high pitched whine.
yes but you don't know about my bad luck lol. I'd end up destroying something that was completely fine.
...still, I'll look at some tutorials and get a general idea of what I have to do
Its not hard at all. But why dont you get something that you don't have to do any mods to? I wont buy a guitar if I know "Oh those pickups are crappy, i'll have to replace them." It seems redundant to me.
However a pickups swap is not hard at all. If you have done any soldering before it shouldn't be a problem.
It depends on if the place you play it at has set up the guitar or not. Becasue my would not stay in tune when I first started playing it because the strings needed to be streched but then after that it stays in tune.
When it comes in the guy is going to put a EVH de-tuner on it and set it up in E with my strings that i want on it. So it should be ready to go. Ill just abuse the hell out of it and see if it goes out of tune.
Are there any other guitars i should be looking at? I dont want an ibanez btw. And ive never even owned a FR so i guess i dont know what i should be looking for. I guess i could just dive bomb the hell out of it and see if it stays in tune.
Hey guys whats up? Well i have a collection of hardtails, my favorite being my prs. Anyways i want to keep my hellraiser so i can keep it in C but i really want a guitar with a floyd on it. I wanted an original floyd but they seem hard to come by. I really dont want to spend over $1000. I was talking to this guy at my local shop he said he could get me a transparent black MH-1000FR for $825 out the door. That is a smoking deal for sure. But the thing that scares me on the LTD is the Floyd 1000 series. I want to know that i wont have any horror stories with this bridge. Any ideas?
