mine - 1962 Gibson Firebird V.
I'd just rather it wasn't home made and so just a that bit more reliable:
Low low action telecaster with humbucker pickups, coil tap on the bridge pickup and extra power on the neck one.
One you can turn upside down and use as a pogo stick
Try a dozen you pussy
These are all stuck together - you pick them up as one guitar
fact, not opinion.
could be expected to see it as sarcasm? when you've just listed an ok midprice guitar with some good attributes?
no wai? maybe my friend had a knock off one
Do ESPs do this? They're very expensive, I'd be disappointed if they didn't.
with the elongated body.
or a beat-up old tele.
or jack white's fibreglass guitar. not one of the remakes, his one.
the sg with elongated body?
it's probably not an sg at all. it just looks like one - and it's got a really chunky whammy bar.
Are you sure it's just not one with it quite far forward?
it has an offset body jazzmaster style
This is the extent of my knowledge about guitars.
and that I do have a semi-acoustic hollow bodied electric Tanglewood Chicago at my parents' house in Bristol I never play.
But 90% of conversations on makes and types of guitars go completely over my head - I'm not sure I could tell a Fender from a Gibson for example.
That's my tip.
'66 mustang. Mmmmm *pulls smug face*
with the short scale neck.
Ripped out the original pickups and put in something a bit meatier but not too metal. I love the floating tremelo on jaguars and jazzmasters, but they're a bit of a bitch to set up.
I built a guitar almost from scratch (well, using the body of a broken strat copy i'd acquired) earlier this year, it was quite rewarding. Got 2 Fender Wide Ranging Humbucker clone pickups with a coil tap linked to a DPDT switch on the volume pot.
I've had a go on one, they one I played was really nice, the pickups are quite nice. The offset body shape rules too. Shame it doesn't have the floating tremelo though.
a squier strat with no pickguard and only 1 volume knob. ive put in a seymour duncan jazz pick up in the bridge and ripped out the rest.
i have also adapted squier to say queer, because im just that witty.
it is my main guitar.
i am lame.
it sounds horrible.
aren't most of the electronics on a squier strat mounted on the pickguard though?
Which pickup did you use? I put a Seymour Duncan 'JB' model in the bridge of my Jagmaster which is pretty nice.
duncan jazz pick up. i think i cracked the neck the other day, but that doesnt really matter cos i can easily get a cheap rip off strat copy somewhere for 50 quid and do the same again.
i liek that.
and yeah all the electronics are in the pickguard, but i ripped all but the volume off. who needs fucking tone?
and its all gaffa'd down.
it just seems like a guitar for someone who likes the look of jaguars but want a normal guitar without the idiosyncrasies that make a jaguar what it is
a Mexican made Telecaster. I like it. It sounds nice and looks cool.
I also want some kind of big chunky Gibson semi-acoustic thingy because they also look cool and that.
their sound distorts really well. I don't know if i'd trust myself with one though as I'm pretty clumsy.
I want too many guitars...I've already got a '56 Fender Musicmaster, and a 1960 Fenton Weill (that is possibly the best guitar I've ever played...like an old Les Paul Jr, but english, and £90)
I think I'd like a one pickup firebird I, but that might be cos bonrurgundy mentioned them, and I'd like a Burns Bison (the four pickup one that there were only 49 of) and a '59 strat, with a rosewood fretboard, in sunburst, with really heavy strings on it. Actually, forget the strat. I'm not sure I'd pay that much, even if I was loaded
many one pickup firebirds did they make?
not sure ive even seen them before. must be uber rare.
the mini humbuckers on firebirds, combined with the neck-thru design make it the most beautiful sounding thing on earth...cream.
not HUGELY rare...probably as many made as any of the others.
I like the look of them with a one piece bridge and one pickup
i recognise them now.
i think the firebrid VII are ugly as all hell, but somehow the one pickup version is too little. the V is a perfect guitar, and ive only played one once.
happiest 10 minutes of my life.
cool, my mate has one, and it IS great, but the headstock has snapped off about four times...fragile bastards
wants a 1960-something Hummingbird, in a darker colour brown.
Where can I get him one and how much will it cost?
Maybe I'll blow up a picture of one as a cardboard cutout for him....
A 60s vintage Rickenbacker 360. Hands down.
Just thought of the ONE I'd pick if I could only choose one
12 string SG Shaped Gibson Melody Maker
Agreed that Tele's with no scratchplate look nice though.
Hmm, might respray my green jagmaster black... I think it was silver originally... either way it's got no paint on the bottom side of it..
Might have to sell one of my other guitars, I only use 3 of them really.
youre going to have a scratchplate-less tele, it might as well have a curved top, black binding, humbuckers and a fuckin' pointy headstock...like izzy stradlin's in the sweet child o mine video. i watched this last night and thought "nice". i would like that guitar.
i think it must be made by charvel?
it's made by my dick.
you know what would be mega sweet? a guitar made out of leerdammer. FUCK.
guitar tech and lust. Mainly because I'll probably never have the spondoolicks to indulge myself in that respect.
Christ, I've been noodling around on the same squier for years now.
But if anyone wants to buy me a present: gold soapbar PRS please.
Status Graphite Stealth bass = Boner. I'd also take the guitar version. Boner with more strings.
That company does endorse Mark King after all...
though guitar sound is about 70% amp, right?
bridge pickup is punchy
middle position is sort of "mellow" and shiny
neck pickup is a single, but sounds like a humbucker, whilst retaining the "punchiness" and shimmer
Or something with p90s in it or whatever. They sound cool.
Tone = Fingers.
There really is
Gretsch White Penguin
they're only liek 70 grand too!
I also like jazzmasters so much it borders on a fetish, I would love a vintage one with the gold pickguards *drools*
....but I finally managed to buy this:
One of only 250 made. It's 25 years old and lovely, lovely, lovely.
what is it?
It's a G&L SC-1.
Apparently it's signed by Leo Fender under the neck, but I don't really want to unscrew it.
you cant harm a guitar just by removing a bolt on neck. unless you like, lose a bolt. or drop the neck out of a window. or something.
