Re: Jay Turser jazzbox - a good buy?

Disclaimer: I am not certain about some of the information details here- it's based on recollections: I have a JT 134 DC thin line semi- hollow body similar to the photo that Bman CV60 posted except that mine has a long sweeping S curve at the end of the headstock, with a beautiful continuous bindin...

Re: This instrument acquisition brought me the most joy! a TUBA!

WOw - that's a steal! Congrats!! I want a Tuba too lars BTW - I think a Trombone in the slide forum would've been appropriate - but a tuba - hmmm :wink: Thanks, Lars. I really should have posted this in the bass section because they basically play the same parts as a bass guitar. The tonal range of...

Re: This instrument acquisition brought me the most joy! a TUBA!

That's awesome! (Now you need to figure out how to rack it so you can play it with the guitar, like a harp.) :lol: That's quite easy Ricochet, (like in the old photo below) although it's not a priority for me right now. It might be fun to try sometime. The tuba already fits tightly enough in a guit...

Re: urghh...bass amp...

This has probably been figured out already but that is obviously a circuit breaker or 'reset' button which serves the same function as a fuse, (and is labeled 'fuse') which is to protect the internal circuitry from current overloads. If the breaker has tripped then you push the reset button, here la...

Re: slide tilting

I thought (and still do) that I had discovered a top secret of the masters, or masters to be, or to improve the masters, when I discovered the inward tilt to slide on individual strings across the fretboard and I have a secret weapon I made to do that with. I started making this particular slide som...

Re: My cheapo Strat-o-Slider

LOL, on the 'lukefisk' Dogbite! I used to live right in your neighborhood, btw, for about 8 years and I think I recognize you from your photo. Hoping to get back to that beautiful city someday and when I do I'll remember to check up on ol' dogbite 8) I heard alot of stories about luttefisk but fortu...

Re: My cheapo Strat-o-Slider

Thank you very much for answering those questions Steinar. I can understand your feelings about the Poet song and finally deleting the folder. Yes, I do believe that the clip I have of Poet on the Radio is from your website. It is a very impressive piece of work that I am going to be sure to hang on...

Re: My cheapo Strat-o-Slider

I just realized (and recall) that the clips I have saved of this CD were made before your final recording masters. Wow, these are rare collector audio clips worth alot of money :D (The Rare Lost Works of Steinar Gregertson CD) I noticed that when I played the 'Poet On The Radio' clip from the CD Bab...

Re: My cheapo Strat-o-Slider

HERE IT IS: http://cdbaby.com/cd/steinar Hearing the clips from the broadband setting (even with dial up) should sound alot better than the dial up setting. Wow, you got some excellent 5 star reviews there, Steinar and I agree with all of them. I noted the movie 'sound track' comments by one of the ...

Re: My cheapo Strat-o-Slider

Slick Cat and Steinar, thanks alot for the information! Yeah, what I don't like about this SG is that it is a bit too bright with the Epiphone alnico humbuckers that are on it now. The original Gibson production SGs changed the pickups a few times. What I do like about it is the Gibson neck and the ...

Re: How to improv playing slide, basic question

Thanks for all the responses guys. I actually did buy a slide. I walked like 20 blocks to the music store, and the guy told me it was $15... $15, what the flip? I saw them for $4 online. I bought it anyways because I had walked there, and didn't want to do it for nothing (I'm lazy) got home, realiz...

Re: ? Blues/Slide Pick-ups for an SG?

I'll experiment and I might get lucky :-) That's the spirit! :D Definitely. My post wasn't meant to discourage DIY. With even simple components, there is a lot of room for exploring and getting to different results -- which is undoubtedly how guys such as Duncan, Lawrence and Bardeen started their ...

Re: How to improv playing slide, basic question

Another great resource is the chord and scale calculator at Look No Hands . Steinar Thanks Steinar. That is a great resource that I haven't been to in a long while. I should be spending alot more time there, like a week straight would be good. I remember when you built that stratoslider from the Fe...
