***OFFICIAL*** Guitar Guys Thread -- all axes, all the time

Recommended Posts

I'm getting back into playing a bit after about a 15 year hiatus, and was looking for a place here in the FFA that has all of the guitar stuff. I stayed at the Westin in Memphis last week and learned you can borrow any of their Gibson custom shop guitars that they have in a display case at the front desk, with a pod amp and all. Very cool. I took a beautiful ES335 up to my room and loved it, and that prompted me to trade in an old Taylor acoustic that has been collecting dust, and with the proceeds, pick up an awesome ES 335 knock-off -- an Epiphone Dot Deluxe ($275 off Craigslist) and a Fender Blues Jr. Hot Rod Deluxe tube amp ($300 off Craigslist).

Specifically, I'm looking to get back into jazz playing and improv, and I was wondering about good online resources, apps, or books for learning this style. I guess what I want mostly is a book that sets out chord progressions for jazz standards and tells me which scales could be used over the chord progression (and which maybe explains why, so I can remind myself how to figure out what scales/modes work in what keys, etc.). But basically, I'd like to start just by learning some chord progressions and maybe some lead licks to play over them.

Somewhat related, the amp sounds great, except the reverb isn't working -- did a little research on the web and there are some awesome sites out there for modding these amps to improve the tone, fix the reverb tanks etc. (all DIY stuff, relatively cheap). Similarly, the guitar sounds AMAZING and plays beautifully, but it's pretty beat up (some goofball hipster from Brooklyn owned it, and he obviously beat on it pretty well) -- the strap peg at the bottom is just a screw, the gold hardware is all tarnished/rusted, and the controls and pots are a little loose. But it has the fundamentals, and sounds and plays beautifully, so I'd like to clean it up, upgrade the pickups, get a tech to do a professional setup, do the frets, add a bone nut, etc. The potential in these Epiphone Dots is amazing, and from what I read, with the right mods you can get them to sound every bit as good as their Gibson big brothers (and I wasn't about to drop 2 grand on one of those -- and frankly, rejuvenating this old guitar with some character is half the fun).

Any other Gibson nerds here? Any other players looking for/know of good resources for learning or teaching yourself at home? What's the easiest way for me to just record my chord progressions so I can play over them? (When I was a teenager, I had an old cassette tape and recorder in my basement -- are there "better" options out there for a setup like this today?)

Post your axes and rigs; post your info. Guitar nerds unite. a>

71 les Paul mutant. (Serial number says it should have paf pickups but it has p90s in the original cut of the wood)

Yamaha pawn shop acoustic.

Sold my es335 years ago to move to Nashville. Sold my d410 to pay the bills.

For jazz I would do one thing: listen to a #### ton of jazz, preferably while you could play along with it. Chords and scales in jazz are easy to deduce once you have a feel for what notes are bouncing around on the track. Give it some time - you will surprise yourself.

Wow, you have nice stuff.Yeah, I learned some jazz/blues/rock in lessons in high school and studied jazz a bit then, and I've always been a casual listener. But the best and most enjoyable way I ever learned was when my teacher came to my house, wrote out and taught me a chord progression, taught me the chords and key, and then would show me the various scales I could play over it. From there, he might teach me the melody as well. During the week, I would practice and learn the chord progression, record it, and then play the melody and solo over it. Next lesson, we would trade off playing the chords and soloing, then move onto another tune. Rinse, repeat. Just looking for a book or some other resource that will teach me that way (one HAS TO exist) so I can go through it myself at home.Actually, I was always a big fan of Santana's playing, and I think I'm going to start with Black Magic woman near the top of my list, just for fun. But I want to get into the jazz standards too.PS. Can I have your ES335?

Take it to a shop with a good reputation and have then make sure the intonation is correct. That's the first step.

Neck and intonation are surprisingly rock solid. Very pleasantly surprised about that.

Any thoughts on using Rocksmith for scale practice?

I'm just a hamfisted strummer, for the most part, so it's helped me get a feel for scales since I've had no formal training.

Not sure how that transfers, if at all, to the Jazz progressions you're seeking.

Nice.I just sold my SG and Twin Reverb. I'm down to one guitar and it's my beater 310 CE. If I had chet money, I'd have a wall of Santa Cruz, Goodall, and Huss and Dalton acoustics, an ES335, and my Twin Reverb back.

Eric Johnson offered me 2100 for the lp and I turned it down. It is literally one of a kind. I had a Gibson rep look at it and run the number and even he was shuked. The p90 pickup (soap bar) goes in a smaller groove. The Gibson records say it should have pafs, which are wider.

Nice. Had a PRS some years ago, probably the best guitar I ever owned. Beauty.Though I will say this -- of all the guitars I owned, some pretty expensive, the best playing one was the SG Epiphone I got as my first guitar when I was 14. Sounded amazing for the 300 bucks spent on it, lasted forever. That's why I was happy to spend the same amount on another Epi this time around, and I wasn't even remotely disappointed (in fact was a bit blown away).

Yes, that Eric Johnson. I had his tech do some work on the action 15 years ago. I never met him - he apparently saw it at his tech's house and played it.

I could never play an sg. Neck was always too sharp for my taste.

It's a tiny neck and the balance is whacked, but I liked that guitar. Had the most fun I've had playing music with that thing playing punk mostly just in a rehearsal space in Williamsburg in the late '90s. Such a great tone.

Otis, since you're getting into Jazz, stay away from the Gibson jazz axes. They're made from plywood.

The Heritage models are made from solid wood and they are priced pretty close and sound great.

Brought my new baby in to a local tech who seems to have a good reputation here in my area. He's going to do a full setup, cleanup, and also swap out the pickups with something way higher quality -- he's swapping in some hand wound humbuckers from Porter, which get awesome reviews online (and he swears by them). May also swap out a couple of pieces of hardware on the guitar, fix up the wiring and controls, and get it in tip-top shape. Very psyched, can't wait. But it will suck to be without it for around a week...

Acoustic: Martin D2-R - has laminated instead of solid rosewood, so it doesn't sound as good as the solids but was way more affordable.

Electric: Japanese Fender Strat that I've had since high-school. It's the only guitar I had when I played in two crappy bands way back in the day, and it's literally been run over by a car, but it's my old mainstay.

Both of these guitars need a tune-up. How much can I expect to pay to have someone check and set the intonation?

Last year I finally threw down for my dream guitar. :wub:

With three young kids I barely get a chance to play anymore, but like Otis I'd like to pick up some theory and learn jazz progressions/licks at some point.

Love the SG. Nice. They'll always have a warm place in my heart because my very first guitar was a black Epiphone SG.I recently upgraded my guitar to a Yamaha SA2200 semi hollow. This guitar is glorious. It's an ES335 but way better made, and cheaper.I also found a vintage Fender Stage Lead amp from circa 1980 and it is a beautiful thing. $125 for an amp that sounds every bit as good (on the clean channel at least, which is all I use) as a $1,000 Fender Twin Reverb.Loving my setup right now. Through a sequence of trades on Craigslist I now have a brand new Peavey XXX all tube half stack sitting in my basement. I'll never use it, but it's got a ton more value than what I started with, so I'm just waiting for the right trade to swap it for another vintage amp or another guitar.I'm still playing a bit, not as regularly as I want to. But I'm playing, and getting better for sure. Hoping in a couple weeks work will cool down and I'll have time to get into a more regular routine.

That's a nice amp and you got a good deal, but you are either Lying to yourself or have never played a fender twin reverb.

I also have this old Marshall Studio 15 amp that I bought back in high school for about a hundred bucks. Never cared much for it but held onto it over all these years. Now I find that they're somewhat of a collector's item but I haven't been able to get my asking price on Ebay (about $700). From the research I've done it seems to be worth at least that much, but maybe not.

A quality hollow body under 300 is a nice find. Id suggest taking an amp you know (or meeting at a guitar star so you can plug it in) because a rare, bad hollow body is awful to own.

Come to think of it, Prince has some rabid fans. He could probably sell it for a fortune as is and track down something similar netting a pretty significant profit. Obviously, still weak.

PS. Can I have your ES335?

GB O. If you want an ES335 and a Fender Twin, you need to just go ahead and buy them for yourself. You make plenty of money. One of the perks of giving up a career in music to get a "real job" is that you can afford to buy whatever gear you like. And it's not like you're dropping piles of cash on other hobbies like rounds of golf and new clubs, or hunting trips and new guns.
