    Roller Nuts

    Does anybody have any experience with roller nuts? I know Fender makes them as does Gibson on some of their new guitars. It seems like a good idea as the tuning instability seems to always go back to the nut micro-binding the strings in their retreat from bends/bigsbys to neutral. Even in minor...

    Favorite Free TAB software

    I write TAB notations for some thing but not that often. Not often enough for me to get serious about any real software. I only use if for short solo sections I want to keep straight. Any recommendations for free TAB software?

    New Year's guitar related goals

    So what are your New Year's guitar related goals? I'm hoping to continue to learn and polish songs to play (maybe 1 or 2 a month), but also spend some quality time going through some solid lesson books and be a significantly better player by next New Year's day. No new guitars or equipment...

    3-piece band set list

    Hey all, I've been playing with two guys and we keep having problems finding solid songs for 3-piece bands. Not too hard (shredding lead guitar stuff) but not too easy either. Any of you 3-piecers willing to publish your set lists? (I have a couple stray cats stuff, so this would be in...

    Les Misérables

    Ok, I know this is not probably the BEST place for this question, but I like playing all sorts of stuff. Cavatina (full version) from the Deer Hunter is currently my favorite piece to play. I'm now wanting to learn a few of the scores from LM, specifically: - On My Own - I dreamed a dream...

    Acceptible temperature swings

    Does anybody know an acceptable amount of temperature change in a room for a guitar (Gretsch hollow body)? Over the slow course of a day it seems like the variance could be quite a bit (and be ok). And if you take your guitar out of your house to a gig then certainly the chance for instant...

    What is your single favorite song to play (solo)?

    I've picked up a bunch of songs that I play instrumental and sometimes accompanied by my (poor) vocals. Since I'm not part of an active band, I'm always looking for great songs that are good for stand-alone guitar. I'm sure there are great picks from the universe of this Gretsch Forum. I'd...

    Normal string height at 12th fret

    I know this has been discussed before but I can't find the thread. What is the normal height/action for the high and low E strings at the 12th fret (or 22nd fret, where ever it is measured)? And is it done with the first fret pressed or left open? I've got a G6119 with open F holes. 25.5"...

    EL84 tubes

    Hey all, I want to get a set of back-up tubes for my amp, and am looking for the warmest (& cleanest) sounding EL84 tubes available. I know they are not as warm and clean as 6L6's, but that's not the point. There are so many makers/types of EL84 tubes out there, any recommendations...

    Is it worth it?

    Early in this past spring I bought my son's Schecter Solo 6, maple flame top because he couldn't sell it and I wanted to keep him liquid. I didn't have a solid body, and although I someday want to end up with a Duo Jet, I though this would be good in the interim ($500 for guitar and case). He...

    Better Stool for practicing?

    Those of you who use stools to practice on, which stool below would you think is better? I find high stools uncomfortable, even though I'm 6'4", however lower stools with fool bars are very comfortable. The primary difference between the two stools below is that one is adjustable and has a...

    Best way to break out of a playing/practice rut

    Ok all you advisers, I've been playing now since last March (14 months ago), and have fallen into a rut big time. Any good ideas on how to mix things up? Make it fresh? Maybe not playing at the end of the day when I'm dead tired would be a good start. I'm all ears.

    Anybody drive a Mesa/Boogie Express 5:50? I'm seriously considering getting one. It seems to have the clean sound I like, as well as a great blues, burn and crunch.
