    Relic'd Guitars are for Posers

    I think you've misses my point. These modern equivalents aren't made to the same standard the actual vintage ones were. Yes they look old but often the components are new. They often aren't shielded and use cheap electrics. I'd rather pay for an actual vintage than a modern guitar someone has...

    Ibanez RG550 Genesis

    No comments relating to my original post though.

    Ibanez RG550 Genesis

    The S1 pickup in the middle position, what's the deal with it?! It seems to be noiseless but I can't find anything about its description to say so. Not complaining at all I just wonder how Ibanez can make them so quiet (if it's not noiseless)

    Relic'd Guitars are for Posers

    They look awful. It's basically trying to make a poorly made modern guitar look like it's from the golden age.

    ***Essential Pedals. What's yours?***

    Straight into the Dsl, no pedals just the footswitch.

    Fender Player Plus Telecaster

    I defintely have no beer gut, yet! Yes many great songs have been recorded using the more traditional Tele body shape but at what cost of comfort? I think the ashtray bridge and compensated saddles look flimsly and a lot more work to dial perfect. The Strat bridge and saddles are amazing so...

    Fender Player Plus Telecaster

    I know what you mean but the more modern saddles can get you proper intonated. Also the modern Player plus has a belly cut so it's a lot more comfortable. Medium Jumbo frets is putting me off a little as Teles are tall thin frets usually.

    A builder solders ALL pickup wires to ground on pot ...... What the ****

    Bite the bullet and take it to a tech to sort out. Yes it will cost money but it's not so painful to part with it. I did the same not so long ago, bought a second hand kramer of ebay and it arrived with a nasty ground noise. Tried to fix it myself but haven't a clue with electrics. Decided to...

    Fender Player Plus Telecaster

    Has anyone got one of these? Not the Nashville one but the standard 2 pickup model. What are your thoughts on the Tele. Rich

    Telecaster Bug

    Looks lovely but I'd want a neck pickup too.

    Telecaster Bug

    I too have an eye on the Squier Classic vibe but they're also hit and miss with poor nuts and poorly finished frets. I saw a review of one which looked brilliant by Elmo on Youtube and he said the same thing. It needed a lot of work from a Luthier to get it playable which seems pointless as that...

    Telecaster Bug

    I do indeed. Much prefer to actual shop rather than internet shop.

    Telecaster Bug

    Really really want to get a Tele. Since I'm getting older now (39) I'm gravitating towards more melodic music. The shred doesn't really interest me as much now as it just tends to sound a bit dull and everyone seems to be doing it. I'm after some advice from people who have experience with...
