    strap locks

    OK, silly question, but this IS the place for silly people! Are there any strap locks that don't required screws? And where? I've been shopping for 2 hours (not just for those)

    Bob, was this before your time here? There's a whole new crop of us somewhere?

    Intonating your electric guitar or bass

    Hi! Total noob, guitar, computer, and forums. Sounds beyond, eh . . . I have a 2006 Chinese Squier and an Epi LP P90s. I practice on the LP. I have a question, plus I wanted to resurrect this thread, ya'll !! The Epi will stay in tune, even with Chinese factory tuners (2016), and is intonated well. I was ready to throw the tuners away, but one of my best advisors, Rockerbob, has thrown a bunch of physics at me, while I'm trying to upload the tuner pics! One was slipping when I was tuning the other day, and if I pushed down on the peg, it took. And stayed in tune. Been gone a couple days, so we'll see!

    Guitars for Sale?

    Ye of little faith. Sorry about sending you wrong message. What watt? Watch and see, Rockerbob. I love all older things. Would rather have "vintage" than new.

    a little write-up on my new electric guitar

    You did good!! Did the yen go up? It's beautiful, and good shot on the chrome! (I like chrome. Shoulda seen my Harleys). Well, I seem to be a collector of$99 Chinese guitars. But the Epi LP P90s weighs like 4 lbs. My back's so bad, I mostly practice (can't legally say play) sitting down. I got enough to do. Have fun and happy for you!! Yeah, and what Rocketman said, make lotsa noise. Yoko is entombed thousands of miles from you (I think). boy, am I late. still great??

    strap locks

    Thanks, Bob. Again, you saved me unnecessary $$. I must have been reading comments by alarmists.

    My Epi LP P90s came with crap tuners (hex) that spin around. I'm looking at Schaller M6A Tuners 3 x 3, $59.95. Will they fit with screwing? Guitar is 2016. MF says yes but to me they don't sound so sure, and a review by a Gibson owner said he had to drill holes. Help?
  10. My favorite place to go strap shopping. They have a one of a kind section that got wiped out by mudslide. Right now everything I saw was $29. These are all handmade, even the not one of a kind. I don't like much what they got up right now, but I've already bought one a while back. All I have to do is call them and they'll put up different stock. These people are amazing.

    All of a sudden the site won't let me send a pm to a mod. It says you can only send 5 messages a day
  13. How do I upload pictures to Attachments? And why isn't the below (drag files, etc ) on every message box like this?

    Well, it sure is beautiful. I wouldn't kick her out of bed. Strat favorite.

    It even LOOKS neck heavy. It might not be so obvious to me if it weren't next to the strat. You teach, huh? The Gibson (or Epi) next over looks like granite. That is cool! My favorite color, too.

    Agile vs PRS

    A friend is offering to sell me a guitar. I haven't talked to anyone about this, so I'm asking ya'll. The money is not a consideration (between my friend and I). Up for purchase we have: 2014 Tribal Red Agile AL 2000 & a _______Vintage Cherry PRS SE Standard 22. Come on. . . ! I don't care if you laugh at me

    OooooK. This is driving me batshit crazy. Trying to order Ernie Ball strings from Amazon. Apparently you have to know a secret code, i.e. 3223 I finally figured out is Super Slinky. Now, where in the whole wide world of Amazon do I tell them what size I want??? On every pack they list every size. The only ones that tell you in the actual add are 9s. WTF???
  20. My guitars have been in the desert for a year now, and they need a bath badly. Gibson says don't let any oil get on the strings, but others have said clean them up as well. Which is ok? And the frets are poking out painfully on the strat.

    PRS Custom SE 22 guitar playthrough video

    Thanks for the video. To my untrained ears in parts of it the backing track is too much- I really appreciate it

    Wow. How they play is for someone else. I just want to say the Ibanez is SHARP.

    Mastering the 12 String Acoustic

    Rocketman: Listened to you cover David Bromberg tonight. That's the second song I listened to you play and sing. You sound beautiful. Like you said, your hands remember. Well, so does your soul. You can still sing beautifully. I would think you would feel it in your chest. And or head. Don't be discouraged-keep doing it so you can keep doing it. You're wonderful now. Your good. No worries. I can't even imagine playing a 12 string.

    Mastering the 12 String Acoustic

    I never knew you could get an Ibanez cheap. That's wonderful ! Re: your hands. I swear by this as a cure all: ultrasound. No shots, no cutting, 5 minutes and you're outta there.
