Gibsons f*cking suck.

 

New Gibsons anyway.

 

Quality is pretty bad, cheaper woods, higher prices.

You're paying for the name.

 

You're best off getting an Edwards.

What do you guys think I should get? A burns Brian May signature guitar or a Gibson SG special?

Go for the Burns. I can personally attest their rad-itude, having played one. Was $1000, though, so no way in hell could I have brought it home to play on my own.

Who was it that suggested an Ibanez for metal? I'm thinking I might get one of those instead of the Jackson I played but not for sure.

How can I get my guitar to bend better? I was playing a friend's Platinum series Warlock (although it was severely banged up), and I noticed that when I bend on that one the note stays crisp and clear through most of the bend, unlike mine.

 

There's a certain point on any note I bend, where the tonality of the note just disappears, and it sounds like crap. I was wondering if this is the culprit of my pick-ups or my bridge. (I have a tail-piece floating bridge, and the pick-ups are stock ESP lh-100s).

It might be the strings actually. Is it on every string or just a certain string?

I might possible actually use Ebay for this.

 

Yay or nay?

Haven't been here before but I have a question I hope is taken with some cool and casual consideration.

 

I'm looking to learn bass so this is for all you bassists: What's a good bass guitar for a beginner?

 

Try and not to get too expensive about it.

 

Thanks smile.gif

I don't play bass but I'm looking to start sometime. I'd go with a Fender Jazz bass, but that's me.

Fender Jazz Basses are nice, but they can be expensive.

 

Personally, I'd reccomend going with an old Yamaha. I've been playing for 2 years now, and I still play on my old BB300. (Partly because I have no cash to afford anything better ATM) They're great basses and play quite awesomely.

Alright guitarists I need some last minute opinions. I've narrowed my choice of guitars down to two ESP's.

 

 

One of these but black with the emg's or one of those in white, but the one I played at the store had the white headstock though. Thats the only difference.

I love them Vipers, but between these two I'd go for the Deluxe.

Yeah they were both great. I liked the necks on them equally. The only thing with the Viper was that it was a bit heavier than the other. The Les Paul copy was very light. I liked that, and I played the one with the Seymour Ducan pick-up's as well.

I preach Ibanez so yeah, I'd still keep an option open for them tounge.gif Im jealous of Hermanns speed and phrasing.

 

If I was going for an LTD I wouldnt go for a Les Paul or Viper. MH-400 would be my choice of an ESP/LTD. Get whichever felt more like a beautiful woman in your hands, the Les Paul would suit you more. Vipers/SG's can tend to have a flatter tone, depends how you EQ them. Though I prefer the necks on them.

Yeah I decided to go with the Les Paul. The viper was great but it felt a bit heavy to me. The Les Paul was pretty much perfect. I can't wait till I get that with a pedal as well. I know what pedal I plan on getting but would anyone have any suggestions for pedals as well?

 

 

EDIT - Yeah, both necks were great in my opinion.

Sorry if you have mentioned it before but what amp are you running through and what sort of effects are you looking at? (chorus, delay etc?)

 

What colour did you go for with the Les Paul?

I went for the black one with the emg pick ups. Right now I'm using a Kustom amp. It's kind of crappy but it will get me there for now I think. I'm looking for distortion pedals. I'm aiming to get a Line-6 Uber Metal pedal at the moment but later I might want other effects as well like a wah pedal and stuff like that. If I had enough extra cash I'd get a pod but I don't think I'll have enough left over since they are like $200. I really just probably just focus on getting a new amp but eh.

I would've gone with the Viper 400. I have a Viper 50, and even it sounds great. I'm going to put some Seymour Duncan pick-ups in it when I get some money, though.

Have a look into the floor based Boss multieffect processors like the GT-6,8 and ME-50. If not brand new then eBay or local ads, they would be worth it compared to single effect stations.

 

Im not sure how the prices work out into dollars so I cant help you there (british).

 

Gigging amp or just a larger louder practise amp?

 

For practise amp go Roland Cube 60, I have the 30 and I cant praise it enough. Alternativly you could go Marshall, avoid the MG series and you can't really go wrong there.

I'll look into amps once I get the guitar.

 

 

Speaking of getting the guitar has anyone else ever ordered their guitar? I want to know if it is normal for the f*cking thing to take 6 weeks as that is insane.

sh*t, I order them every week online. I usually wait 2 to 5 days at most.

 

Forget 6 weeks man. That's ridiculous.

Eh I'm just going to see how long it would take to order offline on Musicians Friend or something. I don't think I could wait six weeks.

Ordering off Musician's Friend depends on what you're willing to pay for shipping. If you get overnight or two day air, it'll get to you within 2-4 days. If you go ground, it should be there within a week or 10 days*.

 

*That's my Musician's Friend experience at least.

I went ahead and had it ordered from Musicians Friend. The guitar had free shipping but I guess since the case is so big it was $10 for shipping for it. Should come around in 2 to 4 days hopefully. It certainly beats waiting 6 weeks.

I went ahead and picked this up today. I still need another cable though. I thought I had some but I guess I was wrong. I'm wondering if it will sound ok on the amp I have too. I'm just going to wait till my ESP shows up which should be in a couple more days.

 

 

I was going to get a metal zone but I was told how crappy they were. I played with it on this kid's ESP in music class once as well. It was ok but the sound got annoying after awhile.

Guitar Center just opened up where I live so I got to try out a B52 AT-100 half-stack. It sounded pretty good, though there were tons of people playing. I'm considering buying this amp and I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with it before. If anyone has anything to say about it (thats played it) I would really appreciate it.
