Hello Everyone!

Just a quick question. What do you guys think of Ibanez Artcores? I found a
guy whos selling a China made AG75 with Super 58 Pickups for approximately
240USD (12,000 Philippine Pesos)

Please advise! It would be very much appreciated!

p.s. (OFF TOPIC PLUG HAHA)

music at http://kjwan.net thanks!

My fiance and I are kind of strapped for cash at the moment, so forgive my spamming of guitar-themed LJ communities.
We had to pawn his BC Rich Warlock Body Art Series Electric. Which, to my understanding, is pretty rare. My fiance hadn't seen any other guitar with the paint that this one had, and they only gave us $100 for it.

So I have two questions for you:
1. Would anyone be interested in buying the BC Rich Warlock from my fiance if we buy it back from the pawn shop? He wants to get rid of it, but he doesn't want to let it go for less than he paid.
2. Would anyone be interested in buying the other guitar we wouldn't mind letting go of if we got food in exchange? This guitar is an Art&Lutherie 12-String Acoustic, Wild Cherry Model, Genuine Satin Lacquer Finish, for maximum tone. 95% Canadian Wood. This comes with a hardshell case. The guitar and case are both in mint condition. The guitar even has new strings, and has hardly ever been played.

If anyone would like further information, email me at thexainy at hotmail dot com. Pictures can be attained of both guitars if needed. Make me an offer! Thanks for your eyes. ;D

i checked out my tuners on my gibson sg standard and they were labeled "gibson deluxe." on the site it says this guitar comes with schaller tuners. i'm not sure which is of higher quality, but i know my 3 higher strings come out of tune often.

anyone know what to make of this?

oh, and pictures should be coming eventually.

Custom Paint Job

My boyfriend has a Fender Parlor Guitar...antique, from the 50s or 60s. Apparently one of the first Fender parlors ever made. I'm going to paint it. I have an idea for what I want to paint, I'll link a sketch I did of my idea later.
So I have four questions:
1. Do you think any interest will generate if/when I try to sell it?
2. How much do you think I could sell it for?
3. Would any of you be interested?
4. Do you think I could get any more people interested if I offered to custom paint it?

Here's the link to my idea: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/xainy/Guitarscheme.jpg

Any feedback would be very much appreciated!

Tuners..

Hello everyone... It's been a long time..
I've upgraded my Gibson LP Standard with Sperzel tuners today. I was blown away by results!
Not only guitar keeps tuning perfectly now but also it resonates better, and there's a bit more sustain than before..

Absolutely AMAZING "Air Guitar" on eBay!

Jun. 10th, 2006 | 03:41 pm

I was just browsing around eBay and found this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7420415401&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1

What's this? Own an actual "air guitar"? I can't believe this thing got 21 bids. I guess people liked his sense of humor and play on words, and decided it was worth sending him some money. Heck, it's a good joke, nonetheless!

I've been playing an Ibanez GAX30BKN for the past couple of years and now I'm looking to change the pick-up. I've never changed pick-ups before and I was wondering if I can change my guitar's original dual pick-ups to single?

Tele customising

Apr. 29th, 2006 | 05:19 pm
posted by: something_fast in guitar_passion

Hi, I currently play a 2004 '72 RI Tele Thinline. I love it, but think that I'd like to make the switch to single coils. My only prob with this guitar is the muddiness of the humbuckers. I heard that the 250k volume pot might be responsible for some of that? Anyone know anything further?

Anyway, I've been considering moving to a '72 RI Tele Custom. I like the 4 controls and the toggle switch. This is where it gets interesting. I'd probably fit a Bigsby to it, as I miss having a tremelo and Bigsby is my preferred type. I'd possibly change the bridge pick-up to something a little better (possibly something like a 50's custom-shop), and have a crazy idea to maybe fit a P-90 to the neck position. I don't want the humbucker and I've heard that some P-90's could fit without much hassle. What I'm looking for mainly is some informed opinion about this plan. My tech knowledge only goes so far, and I'd love some outside opinion.

Cheers.

Hey, everyone. I just wanted to know if anyone here possesses or has tried that Danelectro Honeytone Mini Amp and if it's any good and if not, is there a much better mini amp.

Thanks.
