64 Fender Duo Sonic
98 Fender Jimmie Vaughan Tex Mex Strat
02 Agile Ovation copy

Only amp I have right now is a 65 watt Crate practice amp... I sold my 64 Fender Bassman back to it's original owner after 20 years of good use. My old buddy/bass player sold it to me in 83... he got divorced 3 times and decided he wanted his ole sweetheart back... how could I refuse.

his may have. regular models didn't. i think the raygun was mostly a Lexicon box, maybe an Eventide, but now he uses a toy gun and holds it up to the pickup. i've seen a cool SS1 in screamin' yellow that had LED's in the fingerboard.

I recently bought a brand new les paul copy and the fucking thing will not stay in tune worth a fuck.

If you tune to an open chord then barre chords are out of tune and vice versa.

Any ideas?

i'd take it back and tell 'em you want it setup. who knows how many snot-nosed kids beat on it before you bought it.

Mr Badguy
01-02-2004, 08:12 PM
It holds it`s tuning better when you detune to Eb.

Still not perfect, though.

Maybe I`ll try restringing it.

i dunno. if you bought a car or a computer or something else and it didn't work right, would you sit there and fuck with it? probably not. if it's brand new, i expect it to work right outta the box. if it doesn't, back it goes.

That sounds like the intonation/neck is out. A $45 setup at your local guitar shop should fix it. Otherwise you will need a new neck. What brand is it ?

Matchbook cover, cut to fit between both pairs of screws the full length of the neck slot & coated both sides in Elmer's White Glue. Tighten screws allow dry overnite. Guarantee to rigid them shitty laminated bodies to the neck, unless you got VibratoNECK™ - in which case, enjoy the wonders of a neck made of the finest mahogany the Phillipines Cratebox and Pallet industry is known for.

I got ripped off badly by some fucking Mormon cunts - so my practic rig is now:

1980 Musicman Sabre II modded w/cream handwound PAF/63DuoSonic/handwound vintage Duncan Staggered Strat pickups setup and Kahler locking trem, stock tuners no preamp

1986 Kramer EVH stripe job (1 of 1100 originals) former EVH owned, Duncan EVH pickup, B-Berry transducer and 2 preamps, dual vol., Orig Floyd Rose

1993 Fender Mexico Telecaster 9 string mod, w/doubled top strings, mid-late 60's lead PU and bridge

2002 Squire Affinity (Indonesia) neck on mid-90's white Korean Squire body, alum pickguard w/Fender gold Lace bridge/61DuoSonic mid/78Fender USA peeled-down to 4.9K neck position pickups

1989 Charvel/Jackson pointy-head neck on 1978 Charvel Explorer butterscotch body solid ash, gold hdwr, tele controls top-routed, ABR-1 Les Paul bridge and tailpiece, Schaller M1 Mini gold tuners w/vintage Gibson humbuckers

1965 Gulbransen, 1958 Hammond M-100 (chopped) with 2 chintzey Leslie rotarys I don't dig.. and some digital piece of crap controller keyboard with crappy presets I can't fucking figger out to get a decent Rhodes sound.. may sell it, but I like the vibes setting.

1980 Marshall JMP 100 watt 4 input Superlead (former VH/Ratt/RHCP owned)
1993 Marshall SL-X 100 watt JCM900 Superlead Extended
1986 Gallien-Krueger Microlead 250-ML 100 watt stereo chorus

1990 AD/A 2x12 half-slant cab w/1 pair Celestion G12K-85's

1986 Marshall 1960A Lead Series jcm800 w/ 1 pair ea G12-M 25watt Celestion Black, 75watt Celestion G12-T75

1976 Marshall 1960A w/ 1 pair ea G12-M 25watt Celestion Black, 75watt Celestion G12-T75

Bradshaw custom 8 output 2.5 (?) amp 9v power supply by Custom Audio Electronics, AD/A Flanger, 6 custom wahs (4 Jerry Blaha, 1 Roger Mayer of London, 1 self-cobbled), customized Rotovibe by Sam McRae of Dunop Mfg, MXR Distortion II, MXR Flanger, rack blueface chorus/doubler model, Ross Phaser - orig orange model, plus a cakewalk of other crap in the trunk I use from time to time (no fancy pedalboard crap)

Looking to replace my stolen Rocktron Hush IIb and Hush IICX units.. possibly selling the 80 Superlead

Junkbox of pickups
Junkbox of effects
Junkbox of necks
Junkbox of tubes

Sorry Mr BG, I dont think Ive seen this brand before. I hope its just a setup you need. Some guys on here do the setups themselves, I know that Elvis is a setup legend.

Don't bother with the strings...Take this thing back! two is right. If you just got it, let the manufacturer deal with it. You never know...getting a setup MAY void your warranty, so just get your money back. Epiphone Les Pauls are usually quite reliable and inexpensive.

Panamark
01-05-2004, 05:10 AM
Yeah I agree, if its under warranty ! Take it back.

Hey SactoFan, do you own an Epiphone Les Paul ? If yes, how do you find it compared to the real deal. I dont know if I was imagining it or not, but they seem lighter than the "real"
ones, (Which I quite like) I would be interested to know how they compare in tone. Ive seen some very cheap here in Oz, and being manufactured by Gibson, its quite tempting to buy one.

I don't own one, but I have friends who do. I have played several Epi LP's and they appear to be very consistent in quality. They are pretty solid instruments, and for the money, look to be a wise guitar purchase...

Grimes has an Epi Les Paul. i've noodled around on it, it's not too bad. that Epi is heavy though.

Mr Badguy
01-05-2004, 01:53 PM
Encore is (normally) quite a relaible brand here in the UK.

They make cheaper guitars for one of the bigger companies, I can`t remember who, much like Squire make for Fender etc.

I think I will take it back.

I'm looking for a new amp as well. While I'm not usually to hip on newer Marshalls, a friend of mine has a Triple Super Lead (100 watter) that I was taken back by when I heard it. I might have to mosey down to the store and buy one of those bitches.

Don't Waste your cash on one of those piece of shit amps......get a Mesa Boogie instead.

Only buy Vintage Marshall Amps.
