master tone

    What do you guys think of Laney amps? How's their tone compare with say Mesa or Fender or Marshall etc.? I was thinking of upgrading my Marshall AVT20 to a Laney LC15 or VC15, not really sure what the difference is. They've got a Laney LC15 for $400 at my shop, which I think is a STEAL

    I have a Surf green (MIM) 1999 '57 Stratocaster. I love the feel, and the maple 'v' neck, and the tone is good...but the stock pickups make that "noise". I would like a good replacement set (all 3) for this guitar that keep the Strat-Fender tone but have more flexibility toward humbucker-like...

    I'm thinking of having a custom guitar built for me - nothing too radical other than some odd switching. Dimarzio HSH, 22 jumbo frets, quilt maple top over alder, maple neck and board, recessed Floyd, body shape either strat or tele-ish. I'd like rear-routed controls - a Les Paul style toggle...

    I got this off an auction for a great price, $250 shipped. I just got it last night. I was a little disappointed in the hardware: knobs, pickups rings, bridge all tarnished. But other than that, it was in excellent condition. The mods I'm planning on are: black/cream zebra pickups, I'm...

    Check this out . . . http://www.taylorelectricguitars.com/Models/ModelDetails.aspx?modelid=2 This is one of the most gorgeous guitars I've seen in a while. The bridge looks superb, and the fretboard is an ebony 15" radius. Shorter scale length, but I bet its a blast to play. Thoughts?
  6. Pickups & wiring
    I'm thinking about messing around with my RG350's wiring, and I'd appreciate some help before I do something stupid. How would this work: 3 volume push/pulls, one for each pickup for coil tap or series/parallel 1 master tone. 5 way switch How would I go about doing this? It seems like I would...

    I just picked this up cheap, but haven't figured out all the controls and I can't find any online instructions. Can anyone give a description of knob/button function, specifically the black pushbutton? Thanks.

    Here's the short story. I played in a country band for 4 years, I quit last winter and sold my tele's. I got back in the band for this year. So I went and bought a new Tele last week. I didn't want to spend much, but needed REAL tele tone. You can only get that from a real tele. So I go to my...

    I've been using a Mesa Dual Rect stack for a while but the JSX is giving me gas. The master tone controls and the gain everyone speaks of on the JSX sound tempting. Has anyone compared the two. I'll be heading into a GC over the next few days.

    Up for grabs is this great Ibanez S2020XAV in DEAD MINT condition. I ordered this new on an impluse because of the piezo pickup and after I got it, I remembered why I didn't like Sabres to begin with. Anyway, it is a 2001 model, so it only has the master tone control, piezo Double Edge trem...

    So I'm looking to sell or trade my Schecter Hellraiser...the color is black cherry and it is in awesome condition. The only things wrong with it are some light pick swirling on the front and slight swirls on the back, a very minute finish crack by the neck joint on the treble side, and the 2nd...

    Hey Guys, I have always liked the 1980's Kramer American guitars and was lucky enough to pick up a neck through 1987 Kramer Liberty 86 American of which just a few where ever made and are considered as the "Holy Grail" of the American made Kramers. This one is supposed to be mint and stored...

    So I'm in a phase where I am moving away from Ibanez guitars and there are a few particular guitars that I want to try out. One of them is the Jackson PC1 model. I've heard it has quite a beefy neck and I'm cool with that but I also want to try out the sustainer and I'm a sucker for maple...
