    Hello! I've been bitten by the guitar bug at the age of 46 having been able to play very basic stuff for years. Currently working my way through Justinguitar.com beginners course & will start actual lessons in 2 weeks.. I've been having fun with the app Tonebridge which gives you loads of guitar tone/song settings as 'pedals' also using an iRig but suffering with some latency issues as I'm using an android phone. My guitars: an acoustic '[email protected] model by Vintage which can be both strung as baritone & standard I have it as standard & a Prs custom 24 that I managed to get for a steal! Cheers! Gav

    Thanks, it really is. They just brought out the 12" cab - I think the 10" has been out for a few months now.. It sounds superb, even at quite sensible volumes. I'd like to try the smaller cab some day for comparison.

    I got this pair as an upgrade from the little 1w Blackstar combo I've been using for the last eight or nine years. It's a DV Mark Micro 50 Mk 2 head and a Barefaced GXII cabinet (American voiced) and they sound absolutely fantastic. I'm really impressed with the amp - the clean channel is fantastic but I'm really impressed with the drive channel. It's basically an overdrive pedal built into the amp but it means I can add a little bit of dirt to the tone and still keep everything at neighbour-friendly volume levels. I'm also really impressed with the cabinet. It's super light and handles everything the head throws at it without ever sounding strained. I really like it with the clean channel on the head - a touch of reverb and my Epiphone es175 sounds wonderful. I'm well chuffed with these two 😀

    Looks like a sweet little set up! Had no idea Barefaced did guitar cabs(as opposed to bass cabs)

    Whichever is easiest - one big advert is easier to create and bump as you need to but can be a bit confusing for potential customers to follow as individual items get sold. Keep the layout clear and that shouldn't be too much of a problem though ...

    I turned up to rehearsal on Monday and found that our guitarist had decided to celebrate Christmas early this year and had treated himself to an EVH Frankenstein Frankenstrat Replica. Not the £700 one mind, but the $25,000 Fender-Charvel variety! I have to say it's an absolute beast of a guitar and the attention to detail is phenomenal. it comes with loads of candy, a reliced flight case and just has that sound in spades. As an aside, if anyone is familiar with what I believe to be an original type Floyd Rose term and the specific tool you might need to tighten the trim arm, then your advice would be much appreciated by it's owner. We've both had a look at it and are undecided as to whether it's even possible. We decided it might be a nice idea to have a side by side shot of the 'monster' next to my pristine Ritter Cora.

    Welcome to the forum! As mentioned above, a lot of us here are really bass players who dream of being “proper” guitarists 😀 so it’s nice to welcome someone who’s learning to handle all six strings right from the off 😀 Unfortunately, there’s no magic answer to help you develop your playing. It’s all difficult and a bit painful at first - but then it kind of clicks together and you don’t even think about it any more. So the only advice I can offer is.....persevere! Lessons are great - the online courses (of which there are many but the justinguitar ones seem excellent) are good but I would strongly suggest that you also sign up with a local tutor and take a few lessons on a one to one basis. This will help you develop good technique from the start and help to stop you developing habits now that may constrain your playing in the future. Courses are great but I think the real-time feedback from an actual tutor is invaluable to set you on your way. Enjoy the forum and let us know how you get on. If you have questions about gear, technique, gear, songs, gear or anything really - Including gear, we like talking about gear - then ask away. You’ll get a million different opinions and always be able to pick one you like, lol 😀 😎

    Well I've not been well enough to do this until now. I've bought a set of triple hots from Warman and I'll get them fitted in the next 2 weeks and report back on what they're like. Cheers.

    About 3 years ago I picked up a Mania brand neck through telecaster copy with Seymour Duncan pickups in at PMT Music car boot sale. I had never heard of the brand but it was cheap and I use it for practice at home. I haven't though been able to find anything about this guitar brand on line and wondered if anyone knows who makes them and where I can find information about this one. It doesn't sound like it's a high end instrument and the hardware doesn't look expensive so I imagine it is a budget brand. Thanks in advance

    My main influence is Marc Bolan, in his earlier Tyrannosaurus days. I principally play acoustic (or Variax on an acoustic patch) as I now recognise that I'm a crap lead guitarist.

    Hi! As I'm pretty new to guitars I don't have a huge amount of experience that I can draw on to give advice, but Richards Guitars are doing the LAG brand starting at £199.. Richard has every guitar he sells fully checked & set up so you won't get a lemon, here's a new vid he's done on those.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I have looked at justin guitars you tube lessons and am going to work through them systematically. Scratch.

    I've got ti say that I wholeheartedly disagree with that as a learning / practice technique. It's far easier to learn something than un-learn it. By playing slowly and accurately you will learn far more efficiently than playing at break-neck speed with mistakes, because once you've made that mistake and repeated it, you've then developed a "memory" of it which you have to over-write with the correct version, which is more difficult than actually doing it right in the first place. I'm not doubting anybody's talent but I've got to question playing at 240bpm as a practice technique, it's like bands that go into a rehearsal room and crank every amp, PA, etc up to 11.

    As above, I'm no guitar virtuoso so my main influences were those people that I could play along with and learn from. I've always loved the way Gary Numan mixed synths with guitars and I'd say I probably spent more time playing along with his stuff than anybody else when I was first trying to figure out how to play guitar. Once I became a little more competent, I also remember playing along with Andy Taylor's guitar and learning from him - again it's the way that Duran Duran mix punk / hard rock guitar with synths, and of course the way that Andy Taylor also mixes that with funky rhythm playing, which brings me onto my other major influence - Nile Rodgers. Once I'd got the basics of rhythm playing, the only place to go to begin to learn the intricacies of it was Nile Rodgers. So there you go, my 3 main inlfluences as a guitar player - Gary Numan, Andy Taylor and Nile Rodgers.

    Has anyone been through his guitar course? I've been watching his youtube videos & find his stuff really engaging, he also does some slightly off topic vids, a recent one being on the subject of copyright & how it affects him...

    There will be so many not to be mentioned in this post, but i think they are all expected, mine too are all of the same players, but my most recent favourites mainly because of musical composition are Marco Sfogli, Plini and Tramaine. All of each are very different to the usual Djent stuff that everybody copies from Meshuggah and the same. Although Tramaine has very heavy sounding songs, they are also very nostalgic and is a perfect blend old and new, same I feel with Marco also. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XTN0TpmJ-4

    I’m certainly no genius on the guitar, I like to play simple and loud, so the stuff I play is really influenced by the likes of Kurt Cobain, Noodles from the Offspring or the Foo Fighters. Really though, most of my guitar education has come from YouTube and the likes of Marty Schwartz or Justin Guitar have probably influenced me just as much, if not more.

    MWH, the flats on my Epi Les Paul are 10s and the low E and the A string are very fat. Also, the 3rd is wound, which suits me. Really happy with how these D'addarios sound.

    In good condition, just not getting much use.. Specs: The Pro Series Signature Misha Mansoor Juggernaut HT7 features a 26.5”-scale length, basswood body, onepiece bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement for rock-solid stability and wrap-around heel for comfort, 16” flat radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets, offset dot inlays, illuminating side-dots, and heel-mounted truss rod adjustment wheel. Not willing to sacrifice tone, Mansoor spent considerable time working with Jackson to develop new, killersounding Jackson MM1 pickups, which can be shaped with a single volume control, a single tone control with push/pull select and a five-way blade switch. This axe also features a Jackson HT7 string-through-body hardtail bridge, die-cast locking tuners, black hardware and Jackson 4x3 (4 over, 3 under) AT-1 headstock.

    What it says in the title! Just had a cursory look at the posts here & I'm sure I can't see s single name I don't know from BC! Anyway, as I'm currently not a gigging bassist & am spending more of my time reminding myself how guitarded I am, thought I'd have a look around. Might try & sell a couple of 80s MIJ guitars while I'm at it...

    I have no experience of guitar flatwounds, but on bass I like D'Addario Chromes, because they're both bright and compliant, even on a 5-er. You could do worse than ping @D'Addario UK a PM (probably best on BC rather than here) and ask for info and advice. I imagine others such as LaBella may have guitar versions of their flats? Perhaps a visit to their websites might yield some info too.

    I know PRS can divide opinion, and they're often seen as a middle aged person's choice of guitar, but I'm middle aged anyway so that's fine. Here's mine just to get things started, it's not a full fat "core" PRS (I'm not actually a fan of the fancy ten top style ones), it's a PRS S2 Custom 24, so that's made in the same factory in the USA but without the carved top and a few other things to save money. It still has the set neck and the same quality control etc, but at a much more sensible price, and this was second hand as well. It's basically this: https://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/electrics/s2/s2_custom_24_2018. Not to be confused with the PRS SE guitars which are made in Korea, I actually traded a PRS SE 245 for this and it's a huge step up from the SE. It's the nicest playing guitar I've ever owned, I really like the way it looks - the picture doesn't quite do the colour justice - and the sound is just exactly what I wanted. I think it will be my #1 guitar for a good while. (I don't know why the picture comes out that way round when it's vertical on my PC, but it does't really matter. It is actually hanging on the wall, not performing some levitation trick!)

    Fine, fine guitars. I owned an original run McCarty and a Swamp Ash Special, both were fantastic players with bags of great tone, although eventually I found the ergonomics weren’t for me. I also had an SE singlecut later on which was better for me as a design and was stunning value for money. I’ll see if I have any pictures stored somewhere. EDIT: None of the Swamp Ash Special sadly. However...

    I'll take the liberty of drawing up separate lists for acoustic and electric players (largely so I can waffle on for longer)... Electric: Ritchie Blackmore, Son Seals, Carlos Santana, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Blixa Bargeld, Robert Quine Acoustic: another one for Bert Jansch, Ralph McTell (really underrated as a guitarist), Davey Graham, John Crampton. And I've only just got round to hearing her first album, but Gwennifer Raymond may yet become a favourite.

    I thought it would be cool if we could share our favourite YouTube channels for backing tracks. I mainly use MyDarnJamTracks and Elevated backing tracks on YouTube. I think those are the two most popular and their tracks seem to be very well produced. Well, share what you have!
