We are not picking on you. We all agree it's a goddamned guitar, but we're just pointing out your mistake. I'm sure Thad's tone, at the start of this ridiculous episode, wasn't mean or having the second intention of screwing around with you, just informing you it's not a Gibson.

whatever, if it looks like a guitar, and plays like a guitar, it's a guitar...  dozingoff.gif i didn't buy it either, got it for christmas. now if you guys are gonna be assholes over a guitar, whatever  confused.gif .....

Hey, f*ck you. No one's being an asshole, or laughing at you.

I was just pointing out that you're mistaken. I didn't want you to get fleeced.

However, if you bring that to a guitar store andsay it's a Gibson, prepare to be laughed at.

 

I suggest you tone down your attitude and learn a bit about the instrument..... since anyone who puts a sticker on their guitar obviously doesn't know the difference between a guitar and a broom with strings.

 

Oh, and btw, looking like a guitar and playing like a guitar doesn't make it a Gibson. "Sticking feathers up your butt doesn't make you a chicken" - Tyler Durden.

this doesn't really change a thing, but it says gibson baldwin on a little metal thing on the back, there for it is a gibson, just not the best kind, i am sorry i don't have the best freakin' guitar in the world dontgetit.gif iam so sorry that my guitar isn't a freakin' gibson explorer that was owned by f*cking slash. do you even know how many people put stickers on guitars?even famous people!!!!!!! and didnt say becuase it has stirings and sounds like a guitar,i never said it is a gibson

1. Technically, it's an Epoch, not a Gibson, even though the company Epoch is owned by the Gibson Corporation. Therefore, it's almost a Gibson.

 

2. Slash never played an Explorer. He played Les Pauls ('58s), Martins, and a BC Rich Mockingbird for a while. Do some homework before making a comment.

 

3. You DID say it was a Gibson.... look at your first post in the topic.

 

4. Famous people shoot heroine. Does that make it right? Nope. Stickers on guitars are retarded. They make it sound worse, and they f*ck the finish up..... it makes you look like a 5 year old and other musicians aren't going to take you seriously.

 

And that's all I have to say to you. No one's picikng on you. We could care less about your guitar. It's not a Gibson, but it's close. Let's leave it at that, shall we?

 

 

 

 

 

Now, onto a quick query that I have.... I paln on putting EMG 81/85 in my guitar (bridge/neck, respectively) and I was wondering.... how long will the 9volt required for the preamp last? Someone told me a single 9 volt is good for 3 years but that sounds a bit iffy confused.gif

Hello guitarists of this topic and whatnot. Recently I've been interested in taking up the guitar, but after fiddling with a few I've come to a problem. See, I have small and fat hands. I'm always hitting more chords then I need to, and it's quite hard to get the one I want usually. Now, is this a fixable problem, does anybody else have experiences with this, or do I just not know wtf I'm talking about and am completely wrong?

 

Please and thank you.

You'll get used to it, don't worry... Lots of guitarists have small fat hands. Also, do yourself a favor and get an acoustic guitar to start with... Spend as little as possible on it. After a year on that, if you still play it on the regular, get an electric starter pack.

 

99% of people that buy a guitar decide it's not for them, so you might as well make the smallest possible investment to begin with.

I just recently started to learn to play. I'm borrowing a friends acoustic, a carlo robelli or something like that. I think I want to learn bass though. My brother has a bass and never plays it, and I often find myself trying to play the seinfeld theme on it.

Bass is the superior instrument.

As I said, here is a photo of my guitar:

Might not be a Gibson, but it's definetely an original Les Paul... am I right? I've been looking for a place where guitar paintjobs are done, to personalize it a bit.

My effects board. A bit old. My amplifier is damaged, and it's being repaired. It's Marshall, btw.

 

Comments?

PCJ.

So, I need a new amp. I've been using a Marshall MG15 fro the last couple of months since I was able it get it off someone for £25. But I really cannot stand the tone, and since I've got a bit more saved up I reckon I should get a new one.

 

Basically, the Vox AD30 and the Roland Cube 30 are the two I'm looking at most, both around £140, any other suggestions to try out?

@ Paco - My musical taste evolved when I took up the guitar, so you might end up playing something you'd never thought you did. But, from what I've seen in the forums, you are into funk and such. Get something old school with a wide fretboard and a big neck. As les suggested, start out with an acoustic and see how you like it.

 

@ Fender - Don't be afraid to show your guitar because of that recent fiasco with Graugboy. tounge.gif Epiphone is a solid brand if you choose right. If you don't have an amp right now, where are you playing through?

 

@ PCJ - I really can't say anything. I've played the Cube and I liked it, but I've heard good things about the Vox. Try them both and figure out for yourself.

This is the guitar I started on.

Decent acousitc for the money. I still have mine (albeit it's more than a bit beat up) and it still sounds pretty good.

Good for learning and begginners.

This one also looks like a good starter.

I should have started with an acoustic, ended up getting a Starters pack a couple of years ago and hated it because I couldn't play for sh*t.

 

Then a few months ago I decided to pick it up, learned explosions in the sky - your hand in mine. From there I just ended up learning more and more, still sh*thouse at it, but i'm past the "god damn i'll never be able to guitar ever" phrase and onto the "hey, this is getting addictive" phrase. biggrin.gif

Too true.

I started on an acoustic because it was cheap and I was broke confused.gif

But I learned to deal with it till I bought my Gibson SG Special.

It's weird, I was never discouraged that I wasn't good - I just played more.

 

I still once in a while do acoustic versions of rock songs (Social Distortion - Ball and Chain, for one) with my band. We'll never record it, but it's a nice change smile.gif

Yeah, I was thinking I might get people flaming or something... blush.gif Right now, since my amp is damaged, I'm playing at my school. We're practicing for a band performance. The school owns a music studio and they have a number of amps. I'm not sure the model, but it's Marshall. Has a pretty warm sound. I'll see what model it is. icon14.gif
