  1. All very good advice, I started off with multi effects and cheap solid state amps. then i got a few more cheap pedals to try and get the sound i was looking for I ended up having to buy everything again because i was never happy with the sound. just save up for a nice fender or even pick up a little marshall combo (tube only! none of the MG crap) I've wasted a hell of a lot of time and money on doing this only now 6-7 years down the track am i happy with my tone. you can play a cheap guitar through a nice amp and it will sound great play a good guitar through a cheap amp and it will always sound nasty.

    PS tone is mostly in the finger tips.

  2. Well the Rode is a condenser mic, I've never heard one but it would be more sensitive but you need phantom power to use it (although I am sure is is not a problem) according to this review you can't go too wrong with it http://www.soundonso...cles/rodem3.htm

    I've been using Sm58's and 57's for years they are very solid mics, I would recommend the 58 more than the 57 if ever you want to do vocals (due to the pop filter) let's just say it's industry standard for a reason.

    My two cents are that i think it would be worth trying out the Rodes, hell im even a little bit tempted.

    Hope I helped!

  3. It all depends on what you like really, i like a high string tension because i use drop tunings and like to "fight" my guitar. Start off with .10 to .46 or .11 .50. as for flat V round most people on here play rock music so it's roundwound all the way. flatwound is more of a jazz thing imo.

    Make sure you check the intonation up on the 12th fret. Check out this guide, a well setup guitar can make all the difference.

    Good Luck Jerry, I hope you enjoy playing! PS i would love to see some gear porn.

  4. Well it's really hard to tell from the small picture but the tremolo plate is stamped fender and the hardware is some sort of tune-o matic (or whatever the hell the fender ones called) so the hard ware at the very least is real fender. maybe the person who last owned it changed the PG. how does it sound? maybe you could go into a store and see how your guitar compares. also i think the pick guard is a lot more dull than the squier. it's hard to tell but i think it's real,do you have any more high res pics?

    Maybe some of these are not as new as i thought but I've never seen any, also it's badass that they reissued the Super Sonic.

  6. I have a MIJ Fender Jazzmaster and i bought it second hand.

    My question to you guys is:

    Can i switch the two pickups because I have problem on one of the pickups, it can't register the tones played on the middle strings. I usually play only on that pickup, so it is a problem for me :)

    Yep, all you need is a soldering iron and some new pups. I recommend Curtis novak http://curtisnovak.c...s/Offsets.shtml
