  1. Thanks Mike. If only we knew then what we know now, huh? It's never too late to start. Just think of each chip you cut away as a line of code you had to write for your CNC. SR I'd rather to start carving fruit and vegetable first than wood.. I think it will be more easier, huh?
  2. Happy birthday.. life begin at 40!! :beer:
  3. I would like to start learning some blues guitar, but have no idea of going about it. I don't have time to go to an actual lesson. Any ideas on where to start?
  4. good job!!! i am so stunning with your job
  5. I'm not a Death or Pantera fanboy by any means, but i have to confess i like the sound of a solid state growl. There's something distinctive in there that's completely lacking in the more recent 8-string-through-6505 generation of metal music. I've also gathered they're cheaper and theoretically lower maintenance. But am i missing something else? Or are valves mostly just popular for their clearer and more melodic sound? And yes, i have the experience of a 4-year-old bassist.
  6. Hey folks. I been drooling over a new les Paul studio 50s tribute lately. They don't carry any around here so I have no other choice but to order one. I was reading about the pickups in these, a 497t in the bridge. I don't play any metal or distortion music and I'm concerned this pickup isn't right for me? I'm looking for a nice clean tone for blues and old country instrumentals. Yea I know just get a telecaster. Well I have one but I like the feel of a les Paul better. I don't mind the fat beefy tone, just want it to be clean. The hottest I might get in tone would be playing chuck berry stuff, and I love the sound of chucks Gibson. I know it's a semi hollow body but that's the sound I'm after, that classic tone My budget is about 850 and I really like the 50s tribute vintage sunburst but I'm unsure about the 497t and neck pickup. I'm afraid they will be too hot. Or am I wrong? I know looking at them they look like two single coil pickups tied together in the pics, my neibors les Paul studio I borrowed once had a solid looking set of pickups, just a square solid pickup which were humbuckers I suppose. This 497T set is supposed to be humbuckers too but they sure don't look like it Sorry if this all sounds silly. I'm a acoustic guy and not well schooled in pickups and elec guitars. Just trying to get back into electrics again to take a break from the routine.
