    For Sale/Trade G6120-1959LTV 2007 MIJ

    Selling this guitar because it doesn't suit my style. Will trade for something like a 335, a Heritage H535 would be nice. :cool: Includes all the paraphernalia, the ABM 2400 roller bridge made a big difference. Guitar plays well, sustains well and has good resonance. some marks near the input...

    Arthritis effect on playing different guitars

    Around age 55 I started to get carpal tunnel and that was a bugger fretting as my hands were going crazy, shaking down my hands after a song was good for a while, eventual had the operation, and now arthritis is kicking in. Someone said to me back in my younger days that playing guitar would...

    Discussion Tips for Recording your Gretsch in a Home Studio

    Great thread! Reckon I’ll pickup some great tips on here. 😁 I started out on my home recording adventure maybe 2 years ago only because I haven’t played in bands lately and wanted a way to practice with something better than a metronome. I initially bought BIAB and a Cubase/Steinberg DAW...

    Will i EVER get faster?

    Having been taught from a young age the same, and then attempt Frank Gamble's sweep picking technique, it sure don't come easy. It's very difficult to break old habits, takes a lot of time and practice.

    Will i EVER get faster?

    Great thread, lots of great feedback, I think I’ve ticked more “Likes” here than any other topic so far. and I agree that the pursuit of speed isn’t as important as one’s feel for the song.

    Will i EVER get faster?

    You make a lot of sense @Synchro I feel so much better now :rolleyes: as I share similar experiences as you’ve described. I would absolutely love it if my right and left hand would play in sync for ever but they don’t. So what I do is use the fretting hand hammer on and pull off technique and...

    Fretting-hand fatigue--what can you do?

    Reckon that’s what it is, I had my hand done 10 years ago but it never felt 100%. I’ve booked a nerve conduction test next week and that will tell.

    Fretting-hand fatigue--what can you do?

    I have a problem with my fretting hand too but I think it's carpal tunnel syndrome. I can't play for too long without getting pins and needles. Have to stop and shake it out. Really annoying.

    Time to downsize...

    Actually never been in that situation because up until my late 50's I only ever owned one guitar and amp because I couldn't justify owning more than one. I swear I dunno what came over me but now I have a collection of ten guitars and three amps! I considered downsizing not long ago but I...

    How hard is it to slim down a neck profile??

    I would buy a new neck. It's too easy too stuff it up and then you'll have to buy a new one anyway.

    First Amp I built

    errrr....Maybe. :rolleyes: parts are few and far where I live and not cheap. You have some very cool looking amps there, your vinyl and badges look very professional.:cool:

    Preamps. I'm skeptical or explain to me what I don't understand.

    Yes. If you have lots of pedals, cheap or long leads, some frequencies will be attenuated due to capacitance in cables, especially cheap ones. An external pre-amp has a low output impedance (a bit like a D.I) so the small amount of capacitance present won't affect the signal nearly as much.
