Edit by Pun: Thought I'd split this and move it to Hobby Lobby. Interesting enough to merit its own thread. Post your guitars, people, or whatever you play...drum kit, keys, etc.


Don't you just fucking love guitars? I love all of 'em!!

Here's my baby, Taylor 710ce

Fixed that image for ya, Z. Pretty guitar. I love the shape of the bridge and the inlay around the sound hole. I don't know if I'm diggin' the shape of the pickguard though.

Mine. Yamaha FG series. Fender HSS Fat Strat w/ sunburst paint job.

Sadly, no. But it plays and sounds excellent. I had a setup done on it recently which made worlds of difference.

Is that just an EQ on your Taylor or does it have a tuner in it too?

Just an onboard EQ...I use a pedal for tuning, best investment that can be made.


What's the rig look like?

I has one of those...


I really want to learn how to play it, I know a couple chords, and I've tried out the intro to "Folsom Prison Blues", but the last part screws me up... I'm reasonably sure that my fingers don't bend the way necessary, though I could be wrong.

Yes TONE is the key. My bridge is so jacked up to support the tuning I use. It's tuned to C#, with an occasional quick 1/2 step drop tune to C. It'll really growl when I want it to. I soooo want a locking Floyd Rose, but it would take some serious routing and carving to attach it to this body. I do love the weight distribution of my Schecter, I'd hate to carve it up too much. Also looking to invest in one of the new "Dime-bucker" pickups. If you haven't seen em check em out.

great tone here

Perediablo, if tone was key to you, you would not be tuning your guitars the way you do.

Tuning a guitar as flat as you do, and then adding one of those superhot dimebag pickups is a waste. All you will get is an extremely overdriven, flat sound in some random obscure tuning so that everything you play has that chunk-chunk sound. Be nicer to your instruments, and to everyone else's ears Smile

I bought a Line6 Spider III, returned it two days later. No depth, no ambiance to it at all. Sticking with a




(The knobs are how they were when I pulled it out of the box...)

Where're my guitar pictures..can't find them online, swore I put them up at some point. I'll get to it later, when home.

Yes THAT tone is important to me. The tuning may be a little obscure, but I can achieve the sound I want with it. It's not all chunk-chunk. The overdriven sound I want to get with those pickups is more for the screaming leads, very far from those chunk-chunks you speak of. My guitar does not always stay in that tuning either. Currently it is tuned standard, so the bridge is adjusted for normal tension. I hate changing it, so it'll stay where it is until I feel like fuckin with it again. I would love to have more than one electric so's I can keep them tuned one way each.

My Alvarez (originally played by my mother in the early '70s). I should pick it up more than once every few months; it has a good tone for such a rarely-played instrument.

This may end up being an incredibly stupid question, but who better to ask it? =P

I just restrung my acoustic yesterday. I wanted to wait until the new strings got used to being under tension before clipping off the excess string. If I tune up my guitar and try to play a simple chord progression I hear a buzz, not completely unlike the buzz you can get when a string isn't fingered properly. Is this due to the excess string length sticking out? I'd rather not clip the strings and find out I was wrong...

On a side note: For some reason the new strings are considerably stiffer than the ~3 year old strings I took off......

you might have put too light of strings on your guitar, which is causing the neck to flex in the wrong direction, which is in turn causing one or more strings to "buzz" against the fret wires. Cheap option would be to try to step up a size in strings, or you could pay a luthier 50-100 to do a set up on your guitar.

Could I adjust that bar that runs through the neck of my guitar? Would that help things?

I wouldn't mess with the truss rod if I were you. It is really easy to mess everything up.

I would go with a heavier set of strings to start with. (you should really change them more often to keep them fresh) If that doesn't cure your problem I would google "fret buzz fix". or "truss rod adjustments". Personally I would see a luthier.

Changing your strings...did you take them all off before putting your new ones on? That really messes up the tension. Strings should be replaced one at a time until all are replaced. I usually start with D or G and alternate until finished. Also do not pull the string all the way through before wrapping it around machine peg. Get yourself a string winder, they are cheap (like $1 or $2) to help take out the slack. There are some luthiers that have put some instructional videos on youtube. Stringing

The buzzing seems to have died a bit... The strings sound good, perhaps it's just the fact that my old strings were sound that the sound I'm used to is "wrong"....

Would you suggest I find a luthier that is from a large chain like guitar center, or more like a smaller non-chain store..?

I don't have a winder, though when I was winding in the new strings to put them under tension, I realized why people buy 'em. When I was tightening the new strings, I pulled the string all of the way though, guestimated an inch on the other side of the tuning lug, then I pushed it back, and wound the string, that way there was a few wraps around the peg.

And yes.... I had taken all of the strings off at once... At the very least I had a chance to clean off the neck of all of the junk I had been putting down while I've been playing.
