  1. Haven't posted here in ages but I need some help :)


    So I am looking to buy a Jazzmaster and I am not sure which one to get.  I want one with single coils and was considering the J Mascis Squier one and Classic Player one.  While I know the Squier sounds good what I am worried about is the feel...I tried the new Squier Jazzmaster and while it sounded lovely and played well it felt quite flimsy.  I like that weight that the better priced fenders have.


    Money is not really an issue (while it would be nice to save some money I don'd mind spending if it means a better guitar) and I need a guitar that would not need to be upgraded in a few years time.  Both of them seem to fit the sound that I am aiming for.  Which one should I go for?  

  2. ye im liking the danelectro cos all ive heard is really good stuff about them and they cost really little. does it have sustain though? im kind of scared that since i can afford more quality i should get it (even if the danelectro is high quality for the price, a more expensive guitar would still be better)

    redman, which telecaster do you suggest?

    HNB, ive been looking for both those models but ive never really been able to find a decent priced one that ships to where i live (btw i live in malta, so not the greatest for postage). while i do like the jazzy id rather get a different shape than the jazz/jag one. i know its just a shape but still, i could do with a change

    i was also looking into the epiphone dot

  3. so im starting to save up towards another guitar, mainly to have one that doesnt have the problems my jaguar has. dont get me wrong, i love the jag. it is an absolutely brilliant guitar and i cant think of a guitar that suits me more. but there are some problems. mainly -

    the short scale - i have large hands so i tend to have problems soloing on the higher frets

    sustain - while i dont need loads of sustain (not lp type) i would like a bit more

    the bridge - i still need to properly fix it but id rather have a bridge that never causes any problems

    styles that i play are mainly alt rock and punk. bands like sex pistols, the ramones, nirvana, rhcp, radiohead. i also like some zep and hendric though

    budget is basically that of a mid ranged guitar, between 400 and 700 euros, although the cheaper the better. guitars i was looking included various telecasters (standard, cabronita, blacktop), gibsons (60s, melody maker) some danelectros (which i know are cheaper but still, if its good ill go for it) and strats (standard and 60s classic player)

    so any suggestions?

  4. so i bought a replacement mustang bridge from warmoth (the one that can be adjusted) and i still have problems. strings still occasionally pop out (i have to put the action high so they dont) and the more urgent problem is that the e string saddle moves to the right as i increase the action, causing the strings to move outside of the range of the pickup, decreasing the output. what can be done?

    thank you

  5. so im looking for a single coil sized humbucker to put in my squier strat (and i will later on move it to a fender strat). i want a sound quite different to my jaguar, so something nice and thick with power. im not looking for a specific sound really but it is meant to cover a kind of grungy, riff based style of music.

    i was tihnking about either getting the seymour duncan hot rails, seymour duncan cool rails, or the dimarziotone zone s. the latter is what im leaning towards because it seems to have decent output and a lot of bass and mid (will ocmplement the thing, trebly sound of my jag nicely i tihnk). what do you tihnk?


  6. i have litstened to demos and have found all of them to be horrible...i have tried a big muff and quite liked it and the demos sounded nothing like it. i know no demo can sound as good as the real thing but with fuzzes ive never seen a good demo

    i will go try it out again though with my jag this time (before i had tried it on a yamaha...decent but nothing great)

    has anyone tried the fz-3 though. i quite like boss and its out of production which mean i like it even more

  7. the thing is all of those are expensive...id rather keep this cheapish. enough to get a good sound but not rly overdoing it. say budget around 75 euro max and i would love to get a cheaper one. thing is i also have shipping to consider (i live in malta...shipping is quite a bit so i prefer to buy local)

  8. i fell thatim in need of a fuzz. i love my ds-2 which is great for more aggressive sounds but i need something slightly laid.

    my gear includes a fender jaguar, a marshall jcm 800 bass amp, a boss ds-2. in the near future i will be getting another tube amp (smaller though) and a wah pedal (prob a wh-10). my budget is low, less than 100 eur for sure.

    the sound i want to git is quite unaggresive, more smooth and...not sure if its the right word...crappy. not really a great sound but one thats cheapish.

    maybe something like

    scott pilgrim soundtrack

    hendrix as well

    none of the above have a really aggresive sound and thats kind of what i want. know that i do not need to repplicate their tones, im not covering them or if i do ill use my own tone

    i was tihnking about

    boss fz-3

    fuzz factroy clone (ill build it myself but seeing how im nnot great as building im not sure how much of an option this is)

    big muff

    any ideas? thanks
