    Wanted - A Strat that's not a Strat.

    Worth noting, perhaps: Strats have a very distinctive sound, whereas when you listen to the first two Zeppelin albums, there are tracks where nobody can tell whether Page is playing a Tele or a Paul, and he can't remember. While it makes little logical sense, it took me years and actually owning a Tele to realise that the sound I thought I wanted from an LP (basically the Steve Jones NMTB sound) I can actually get far better from a Telecaster in my hands!
  5. I have dropped the price to £2500

    Pickups for a strat

    For that price the pick ups should be decent and balanced. Have look at irongear pick ups m.
  8. Hi I'm rewiring two guitars. HSS and SSS I've done tons of research but so many different answers 1. HSS some advise 500k pot for volume and tone (humbucker) and 250k pot for mid and neck tone. Also some advise 0.22 some 0.47 capacitor. I'm after a 5 way blade switch. 2. SSS I'm after a classic strat wiring and I'm aware that 250 k pots are needed but again what capacitors do I need?so many options. Can anyone advise please? @Chiliwailer Some of the Seymour Duncan diagrams don't give potentiometers value. Thank you

    Taylor GS8 Acoustic Guitar

    Part of the Taylor GS series, the GS8 uses Taylor's Grand Symphony body shape. This guitar has a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood back and sides, is in fantastic condition and sounds great, will throw in a top of the range rare earth pickup system. Ideal for picking or strumming, check out the reviews online. Any marks in the pics are just light or reflections from the camera flash on my phone. The guitar is in mint condition with lovely aged wood, sounds and plays lovely. This guitar isn't made anymore and is one of the all time Taylor classic models, check out some reviews here https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=234120 You can check out my feedback on Basschat the sister site to this one for bass players.
  10. I have this lovely Pearl White metallic arch top Soloist sat doing nothing, used once since October. New D'addario EXL116 Nickel wound med top/heavy bottom 11-14-18-30-42-52. EMG 81/85 Floyd Rose set up and tuned down to drop C. Lovely guitar has slight buckle rash other than that it's in great condition. I'm not a guitar player so it really isn't getting any use. £265 ono. Sorry no case so collection only though i can deliver within 50 miles of Worcester if this helps.
  11. Lovely neck that was on my Strat for years. No idea of manufacturer but really nice to play. Lightly oiled back, stunning board, frets have seen use but are all OK. Looks like a previous owner tried to relic the headstock, nothing a little light sandpaper won't get rid of. Tuners included, no idea of make but are solid and do the job. Board really is stunning
  12. This is a rather nice hardtail Strat late 70's Fender body, lightly/moderately reliced. PUPs, circuit and pickguard are Seymour Duncan Everything Axe https://www.seymourduncan.com/pickup/everything-axe-pickguard which retails at £320 https://www.gak.co.uk/en/seymour-duncan-everything-axe-guard/126372. Contrast with pickguard makes it seem a little darker on camera/screen, colour is closer to final four pics. I appear to be selling this for close to what the body on its own (without PUPs & circuit) cost me a few years back, grab it quick before it goes on eBay
  13. Lovely neck that I bought for my Strat just as I became a Telecaster player Three bolt attachment with micro-tilt etc but will sit happily on a four-bolt neck of course. Truss rod access at side of heel. frets are all very very nice
  14. I'm a purely home electric guitarist, not gigging, with a small budget. Because I keep tripping over my lead, I looked at the cheapest wireless systems such as this one on eBay for £17. Has anyone tried these ultra-cheap ones, and if so are they useable - not for gigs or anything professional, merely at home instead of a lead? I'm thinking that they might have a lag, crackle or interfere with neighbours' TVs and so on.

    I’m a huge Tele fan, much meatier than a Strat in all the positions IMO. Every home should have one 😊.

    Depending on how fragile his nascent masculinity is, I seem to recollect that Daisy Rock (branded as 'girl guitars', but actually very decent instruments in their own right) were designed to have narrower board and slimmer necks, and overall be lighter, with the ladies in mind. There are certainly models I'd like in their range, like the Retro H - , or the budget-Ric vibes of the Bangles sig model: I seem to remember first seeing a Squier Vista Series Supersonic in my local guitar store in 1997, desperately wanting one, and going so far as to trying to see if it would work 'Hendrixed' (this was the dark era in which Fender was as crap as everyone else at offering lefties)..... my recollection is that I found the 24" scale neck very cramped by comparison to my US Std Strat (a 94 model). Might be good or small hands. If all you want is to get him started on the 'music is fun' thing, there's always the strumstick - https://strumstick.com ; Ukelele is a cheaper option.

    I know the "Studio" versions of Gibson LPs are chambered - is this also true for Epiphones?

    Wanted - A Strat that's not a Strat.

    IMO, owning both, not *hugely* in th neck - the bigger variation I find is in the bridge. A Tele bridge is much ballsier imo; more in yer face, whereas the Strat is quite polite and has to bed pushed harder to play angry. The real gem of the Tele for me, which cannot in any way be replicated on a Strat, is the middle position with both pups on. That's heavenly.
  21. P.S. message me with your email address if you want a free copy of my book (e-version). When you have read it and formed an opinion on it please do one of 2 things: 1. If you think it has any merit (you be the judge of that) then make a contribution accordingly ... the amount is entirely up to you, OR 2. If it's useless to you .... keep it...... delete it... pay nothing. After deciding on 1. or 2. I would be grateful if you would post your opinion (good or bad) on this thread. Best Regards, Richard

    Wanted - A Strat that's not a Strat.

    OK, slightly different approach ... if I'm after a hard-tail Strat (that's not necessarily a Strat), primarily for the neck pickup, then do I actually want a Tele? How different do Strats and Teles sound, especially when played clean on the neck pickup?
  23. EUR 750 / GBP 650 The codes on the pots date this to 1965. The guitar is overall in a good condition, alle electrics work without noises, no scratchy pots or switches, the three pickups have a very healthy output. The trussrod works as it should, the tremolo is good. The frets are about 70%. The tuner for the high E-string is a little bent but works fine. One thing is to mention: There are two holes between the bridge and the tremolo. These have been covered up with some matching paint, but they are definitely visible at closer inspection. Apart from that everything else seems to be original and unmolested. Most of the 176 bodies were finished with vinyl covers that tend to bend or break. It was less expensive than applying paint jobs back then. The sunburst nitro finish on this one is still deep red and not faded, the guitar was stored in it´s case for many years. The case for the 176 in this version is really rare. It has a kind of faux tweed exterior, some wear on the edges, and a faded painted band logo on one side. All locks work fine, and it fits like a glove. The handle is from an old VOX amp, this must be an old replacement to the original handle. I´m in Berlin, international shipping is no problem. This is my first listing on this forum, but I have been very active on the partner forum BASSCHAT and have some feedback there: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/285909-feedback-for-maut-niels/
  24. Price dropped to £2500....Fender Electric X11 12 string guitar. Mid Sixties with non original case.. Condition is Used. This guitar has a few bumps and bruises as you would expect from a guitar of this age. It is otherwise in very good condition. This is a 1965 Fender Electric 12....it has the Tort scratch plate and all the correct appointments however I suspect that some of the controls have been replaced over the years as has the neck plate. The TKL case is non original....please mail if you have any questions or want more photographs. This is collect only.
  25. Hi Bought a pre-owned takamine "Gibson inspired" electric guitar anyone know anything about these guitars? Can't find anything online! cheers

    Oh that’s ridiculous! 😡 But, as you say, silver lining.

    Wanted - A Strat that's not a Strat.

    Well not quite ... all done and paid for only to be let down by Parcel Force who for some reason couldn't deliver it to a great big Argos store for collection and instead sent it back to the sender. In the end, the whole thing fell through and the sale was refunded Still, probably for the best though, at least it's saved me from my own GAS (well, for now anyway)
