  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I'm a luthier who makes acoustic and electric guitars. Before sending something out I run through a checklist to make sure it passes a few standards. So i put together a list that goes through these methods. The list I go through is top quality, hardware quality, fretboard ease and more. Check...

    I tossed a set of 301 lockers on my Taylor as well. I seriously don't know why I didn't do this to my acoustics 20 years ago. Best 65 bucks I've spent in a while. :metal: Front (reused the Taylor washers so it looks the same): Twins: :billted:

    Whitechapel released an acoustic version of their song Hickory Creek, which was all clean vocals to begin with. This version just feels so fucking raw though, especially when you consider pretty much the entire album was about the death of his mother.

    So, one of the guys in the Kingston trio had this badass acoustic, and under the 12th fret inlay (which was removeable) was a hollowed out spot in the gorgeous Brazilian rosewood board to hide drugs :) Bob Shane's 1981 Mossman Golden Era Brazilian Rosewood Acoustic w/Secret Compartment
  5. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Yup totally boring subject I know but I'm trying to help a friend out. He is in the market for an acoustic, essentially your dreadnought style one and has asked me for advise. Problem is I have never had any interest and therefore history of purchasing or caring about dreadnought acoustics...

    So, I found a Hohner Contessa on Craigslist this afternoon. It's a 1980, Korean HG-03 and it's in pretty decent condition. Picked it up for $80, which is not a screaming bargain, but it was well within my project budget and I figure a little elbow grease, some bridge pins and I'll have a...

    Hi Most of the stuff I do on acoustic is hard rock/metal/techno in serious drop tunings. Im always trying to get the biggest sound possible out of an acoustic. Heres a sample on my Ovation. "Dreadnought Cyberbot"

    Second purchase from my budget-gear haul, and another Yamaha. This one is a Yamaha SLG100s "Silent Guitar" and as you can see, it's more empty space than it is guitar :lol: Can't say for sure but I *think* the first time I saw one of these was that castrated Finger Eleven song some years back...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I was going to post a thread asking about this just the other day, then found this while searching. I was looking for an acoustic guitar that felt easier to play, more like an electric. Frank Gambale has a signature acoustic made by Cort, and he says it's built with much lower action than most...

    That's surprisingly pretty. Will have to sit down and figure this out.
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Got these, borrowed my singer's guitar because I like the strings on my acoustic. I find the strings sound pretty good. I normally use elixirs on my acoustics, but these arent bad for non coated. Sorry I didnt play any thrash.
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Has anybody installed these in their guitars and what do you think? Was it fairly simple or a pain in the ass? I have several gigs where I need to go back and forth between electric and acoustic sounds. Plus, I often blend the sounds. I'm currently using an a/b box with one side going to my tube...

    Playing next to my kitchen table on Saturday, the strap slipped off (it was doubled over on itself, I was being sloppy) and the lower bout of my Martin, a MC-16GTE, cracked the corner of the table before I could stop it from the neck. :( I'm bringing it into my shop this afternoon to see if...

    I have only owned one acoustic guitar I bought in a pawnshop for $20 and I accidently stepped on it so I threw that shit away. The weird thing is, I like acoustic sounds, but I hate the idea of spending money on a fucking acoustic guitar! It's just boring! And they have to be taken care of more...
  18. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Yo, I study guitar making at the moment (since that's something I've wanted to do for ages) and at my college we're building acoustics at the moment. I'm in for two days a week so this thread will be a bit slow-paced but hopefully this will be interesting to some. :) Anyway, the general plan is...
