If you already have an electric it might be worth getting the acoustic to change things up the most. Semi hollows are cool too though, comfy for jazz and other clean stuff with lower gain

what do you /mu/tants think about flying v's
owning and playing them in 2019 is cringe or not?
do people still use them?
for me they look kinda cool, my favourite musicians used them and they are perfect for metal because of the body- you can reach higher frets without any problems
but im interested what do yall think

They're mostly a meme unless you are classically trained and are used to playing the neck that way. Otherwise I would stick to other models

Not many 40s used unfortunately but new right now are these so I'm not sure. The 100 is probably too big for me and I don't think I'll be playing with anyone for a while but who knows, it's slightly on sale right now but I don't think I need it, I can worry about that when I can play decently.
LT25 £130
GT40 £180
GT100 £270

Does those amps only model fender amps or do they have vox/marshall models too?

sold all my gear and bought a MIJ Navigator a few years ago and it's literally ruined any other guitar for me. I keep buying other affordable guitars for 'versatility' but they all play like grainy turds compared to the nav and I can't afford another one.

My music playing is literally just Les Paul > Marshall one dimensional and I can't/don't want to break out.

pic related, it's oversaturated vendor shot but you get the drift

Yeah you eventually hit that point where you're just satisfied with 1 or 2 things. Versatility is basically a meme IMO because unless you enjoy what you get out of the versatility it really doesn't matter if its not satisfying. In other words I'd take less options if they were better than more options if they are shittier.

Previous owner made the cosmetic mods for it to match Ken Yokohama's guitar (pickup/tuning pegs). I've since removed the scratchplate, tho.

>>88896889
yeah schecters are alright, and it's not like your friend would rip you off, right?
just MAKE SURE THE NECK ISN'T WARPED, and play on all the frets to check if any aren't ringing out properly. If there's dead frets, a luthier (or you) can fix it.

>>88896915
The guitar seems in pretty good shape, as far as I can tell at least. I do definitely trust him. It's that he bought this guitar when he had a lot of disposable income and he learned some songs on it. But now he's moving countries and he's trying to get rid of all his stuff. I just wanted a second opinion from you guys because I don't know much about this stuff.

>>88896949
Souds like a decent investment, thanks

>>88897000
I think this was the case (warped neck) and he got it fixed, so it should be good now. It looks good right now
>>
>>88897000
Highly unlikely a modern guitar with a functioning truss rod will have a warped neck
>>
>>88896708
They have models for Vox, Orange, Marshall, and Mesa Boogie, in addition to a few others and a bunch of Fender models (they aren't all named, but the app has a help section with diagrams that make it pretty obvious). Of those options, the 40 makes the most sense, IMO, but if you can't afford it, there is nothing wrong with the 25. The 100 is probably overkill if you won't be playing outside of your house, and doesn't add any new features over the 40.
>>
Reminder that the guitar's brand doesn't matter, it's the guitarist
>>
>>88897062
Ok so what happened was that apparently around last year the first two frets were not resonating properly. He didn't do anything about that and it eventually fixed itself somehow. He got the thing in 2004
>>
>>88897042
These softboys need to put on some weight. No wonder those teles dig directly into their scrawny little bodies.
>>
>>88897094
I can definitely afford the 40 but I'm just hesitant because I'm not sure if I need any of the extras.
I would like a tube or some type of better amp eventually and actually get into buying pedals but I just need to learn how to play and maybe develop a taste for amp sounds I like. The only thing I'd miss about the 40 I suppose is the option to play with the signal chain and develop a taste for different effects so I can buy pedals with an idea of what I want?

Do you know if that diagram is online anywhere or if there is a comparison of amp models between the 25 and 40? It's really the amp sims I'm looking forward to.

>>88897184
>>88897189
Sorry for doubleposting, but here's a chart for the GT amps. If you want to get pedals and a tube amp later, then the LT25 MAY make sense. I can't find any equivalent chart for the LT25 (or even a manual on Fender's site, which is weird).
>>
>>88897229
You can change the EQ globally in addition to tweaking each effect, this article goes into a lot of detail about the different options. What works best for you will differ depending on guitar and pickups. The 6.5" speakers in the GT40 will also sound different than the GT100, which has a 12" (the LT25 has a single 8"). I leave mine flat.

That's actually useful in comparing, since my experience with the LT25 is limited. It really depends on how much you want to play with effects. The GT series lets you stack multiple effects in a single category, the LT seems to limit you to one of each. It also doesn't have the Bassbreaker model, which is one of my favorites (but that's subjective). You may just want to find a way to play them and compare them in person. If you really want to experiment with different effects, I think the GTs are a better choice. The LT seems cut down, intended as a replacement for the Mustang I.

Any other songwriters find it very difficult to get followers on social media? I did plug my Facebook page at open mics but I gave up, would be lucky to get one or two likes per gig. It’s not an ego thing for me, I would rather I didn’t have to do it at all, but I don’t know how else I could get people to listen to my album when I put it on Spotify.

It's easy, just use your thumb for the root and pinky for the high e. Then use your remaining three fingers for the middle.

>>88897631
It’s difficult but it’s not impossible. Bear in mind it doesn’t matter if you fret the bass E string as long as you don’t play it anyway, I find it easier to do it that way as it gives my other fingers more stretch.

I don’t like that fingering anyway, try this one.
>>
>>88897567
Right thanks, I figure GT it will have to be then. I don't think I'm concerned about the amps but multiple effects sounds useful since I listen to a lot of psych/indie/shoegazey/bedroom.
I autistically went through each list in case anyone was reading and the LT misses a few, to list some.

I think it’s fair to say I am a good singer songwriter, although I am always playing to the same 50 or 60 people who frequent the open mic scene in my area which is getting a bit dull.

What is the best series of the American fender lineup?
>>
>>88899016
Nothing is really 'must have' but I would add a Big Muff to your collection as they're affordable and totally distinctive. Also, certain overdrives are worth adding in. I would look at the OCD, imo its the best OD as long as you pair it with the right amp.
>>88899051
American Pro
>>
>>88899091
I'll probably pick up a Big Muff off of CL because they are all over the place there. Do you have any idea about the Boss SD1?

Also I forgot to mention I've got a Crybaby as well
>>
>>88899149
>Boss SD1
Yeah this is fine. Its a good simple generic OD and compliments the DS-1 in that respect as being a simple but good pedal. If you can save a little more I really think you'd like the OCD, the mode switch on it is really useful and since it can go 9V or 18V mode its just really good sounding and responsive compared to many OD pedals out there.
>>
>>88896547
Anything Fender is full soi unfortunately, I say this as a jag man. Least soi probably gretsch.
>>
>>88898976
yeah idk then, solo open mics is definitely a different scene from what I do

But I do have a friend who does that kind of stuff who's somehow managed to get a pretty good following online without ever playing a show. He spammed his album a lot online, like a lot. Shilled it sneakily on /mu/ too. Spammed youtube comment sections. It returned a lot of negative reaction to the album just because people don't like being advertised to, but at the same time it got a lot of new fans and now he has a solid following

So I guess just try being annoying as fuck online

Lads would a mim HS Jag or HH Jazzmaster be a more versatile instrument? Coil split on both bridges.

I realise a strat is probably best since I want to be versatile and into metal and indie/psych but I really have no desire for one, kinda same with tele unfortunately.

The jaguar would be more versatile out of the box. The HH jazzmaster needs coilsplitting to be modded in. All player series humbuckers are rather dark though. You certainly don't need singlecoils to play indie and psychedelia either way, just make sure to have same headroom in terms of brightness.

they're real, but not "real"

lower end gibsons have multi-piece bodies like some $500 korean schecter and shit QC

>tribute
>studio
>faded
these aren't "real" gibsons, they're overpriced epiphones made from the scrap wood left over from making the real gibsons.

somehow fender, and even companies that do set necks like ESP, don't have to do this and offer one piece bodies (two piece - wings - in the case of neck-thru though) at the same price points as low end gibson, reserving the price bracket of normal gibson for hand carved custsom shop shit and the price bracket of "high end" limited edition gibson for nada, a guitar has no excuse to cost that much if it isn't made of diamonds, gold, and abalone.
>>
>>88904332
That's the way it goes when you insist on mahogany everything. It's a legally restricted wood so they have to reuse scraps and then charge out the ass for it. No matter what they do stocks of old growth mahogany tonewood are pretty much gone so there's no point, it all sounds pretty much like alder anyways and it's all heavy as fuck with excessive mineral content.

Fender and ESP use alder and ash.

get a low output humbucker for the bridge or active pickups (which are low output humbuckers with an integrated preamp)

newer models like SD blackouts have more headroom, old shit like the EMG 81 will distort in the pickup preamp itself

you don't need high output for heavy shit. it depends on your amp, and you might not need anything or you could just use a boost pedal or a tube screamer with the drive all the way down and the volume all the way up.

It's known that people of mediocre intellect compensate by surrounding themselves with things that appear complex, and therefore exclusive to intelligent individuals (in the mind of a simpleton), avoiding more elegant things at all costs lest someone think "what a simple interest, fitting for such a simple person".

They do this so reliably that you can spot the middling IQs by how superficially sophisticated their interests are.

Thanks, so it appears that the player jazzmaster probably isn’t worth it as HH defeating the point of it?

A lot of indie stuff I listen to has strat singles but I didn’t really want a strat so I hope a jaguar neck comes close? I don’t know if it does since everyone seems to demo them with a ton of distortion so idk if there are nice balanced cleans.

Why is the a bridge tone on the strats only? Is this very useful? Should it make me reconsider and get a strat instead even if I don’t like the look?
>>
>>88901477
I’d say it’s one of the of the best amps of all time. If I could only have one amp, it would probably be this one. But don’t go Fender’s reissue. Buy an actual vintage one or go with a well done copy.
Just too loud for my apartment levels as of now, though. I’ve got a Tweed Champ that I thought would just be a good practice/recording amp, but it’s become my go to in almost any situation. Love that thing.

>>88905726

>>
>>88905643
cute and very small but not as good sounding as all tube orange terrors. kind of thin and tinny sounding. a real all tube orange terror is a lot fuller sounding. in a full band nobody can fucking tell though and it's loud enough, unless you want clean tones. in a recording situation you can tell A to B and might be able to tell with just the isolated guitar track.

they get the job done as far as gainfag amps go and are a better purchase than a gimmicky "practice amp" with two dozen effects built in so you can muddy up the already muddy "metal" setting

>>88905726
I think every guitarist should own a wah in their lifetime. It’s an iconic sound, but is surprisingly versatile too.
Auto wah is definitely a cool effect, but it’s also a lot more noticeable than a wah to the point where you could almost call it gimmicky. Jerry Garcia, Johnny Greenwood, and John Mayer have some really good auto wah tones though.
>>
>>88905777
A string tuned lower will vibrate more. A string that vibrates more needs more room to vibrate or it hits stuff. If it hits the frets it buzzes. Make sure the relief is still correct. If it is, either go up a string gauge and re-check relief, or check if the action is right and possibly raise it.
>>
>>88905760
why are teles better?

>>88905830
-just enough pickups and knobs/switches, no more, no less = less distraction from the music

-heritage and authenticity

Don't know what you mean by bridge tone. The tone knob works for both pickups at the same time and a split humbucker can easily replace an actual singlecoil bridge.

>>88905968
Most classical guitar pieces are very difficult and require a lot of practice while pop music is very easy to play, generally speaking.
>>
>>88905776
regular wah is when you want to have precise control of the filter, also has way less timbre options, it's just standard wah sound with control

auto-wah is when you want a constant rhythmic wah or wah on every certain level of attack, you can tweak the sound of the wah a lot more
>>
>>88905949
Not a big step up from the 311 to my ears. Both sound rather sterile without tweaking the amp and even then the tone remains rather neutral. The issue of the small neck remains and I would heavily advise actually testing it in a store.
>>
compressor, chorus, tuner, overdrive

in which order do you put them?
>>
>>88905968
because people interested in classical tend to be more intelligent on average. the whole point is the technique and the science of music, of course classical guitarists would be better at guitar than some stoner who started playing because he thought Slash was cool. not to say there aren't technically skilled rock guitarists but that's beside the point

Because the fingernail bullshit is a massive pleb filter. If you are not sufficiently dedicated you will not stick with it. For men it's massively inconvenient to have long, asymmetrical fingernails even if you live a pampered life, and for women the shaping is anything but fashionable. Imagine having to do any labor, breaking a nail, and not being able to play guitar for the following month.

So only very, very dedicated and passionate people will ever stick with classical guitar. It's one of those instruments that takes hold of part of your life.

>b-but can't i use slip-on fingerpicks
A complex skill like classical guitar must be taught, not merely learned, unless you have a full scale IQ score north of 130 with highly developed visual-spatial skills and no instructor worth the money will let you wreck your tone like that. It's the classical equivalent of turning the mids to 0.
>>
What's a good amp for preserving the clarity of complex/extended chords? AC15 has been suggested but I'd prefer something more reliable
>>
>>88905968
because they just play things written by people better than them instead of playing things written by people who are essentially just more experienced peers. it's an old instrument, and an old style. a lot of great players have made their contributions and the rest just replicate them.

electric guitar is a completely different instrument and people are just now starting to scratch the surface of its potential. it's an immature discipline so its players are going to look immature by comparison. but they're valuable. you need people playing the thing for there to be a chance for one of them to have the creativity needed to move it forward.

yeah, runs through the body and into the cavity

lifting up the bridge there is wire coming out making contact with the bridge, but as far as i can tell there's no actual wire in the sleeve coming out the other side

the wire on the right that is already stripped is soldered to all the electronics so i'd assume whoever was putting it together was going to solder it to the bridge wire
>>
>>88905963
the player strats have a master tone and a tone knob just for the bridge pickup, oh so a jag is probably okay then?

Just use solderless components dude tone-solder is a myth
>>
>>88906252
Don't tell me what to do
>>
>>88906235
You want to solder the ground wire from the bridge to the surface of your volume pot. Soldering to pots can be tricky because it takes a long-ass time to heat up such a big surface, plus you also want to scratch the surface with a screwdriver or something so that it's rough and the solder takes easier to it.
Did you try stripping the wire? There is plenty of lenght there, go little bit by bit until you find it.


It might be wise to invest couple of bucks into a shielding tape and to cover that entire cavity with it while you are at it.
>>
>>88906311
That's what i figured i'd end up doing, in that case what should i do with the loose, already stripped wire?
>>
So with all the whole Gibson-dean threatening lawsuit situation, who was in the right?
>>
>>88906235
Honestly no idea, that looks like a ground going off that pot (I assume the leftmsot pot is volume?)

You could try removing the bridge and removing the wire leading under it completely and just plug the already stripped wire under the bridge instead and see if it works.

Gibson has never not lost this sort of lawsuit when the company being sued actually fought back. It's pathetic, really. You'll only win if it's a consummate copy that can easily be mistaken for your brand at first glance, or at least a blatant copy of it.

ie: If Fender sued Tagima, they would win. But they don't because Tagima makes such shitty guitars that the Japanese guy who founded the company left it to go do his own thing. Fender has nothing to worry about here. The lowest end squier plays better and costs less than anything the monkeys at tagima make.

Gibson is suing because deans play as well and sometimes better than the very expensive "real gibsons" but cost less. However they aren't anywhere near being easily mistaken for anything gibson makes and they didn't register their trademark soon enough to have snowballs chance in hell at protecting. The Les Paul, Explorer, and Flying V shapes are now cultural standards. They'd only really be able to sue over their more obscure shapes like the future and firebird.

thanks anon, ill try stripping the wire at least to see if theres any in there, worst comes to worst i can just pull it out and use the existing one i guess

>>88906451
The long wire that seems empty inside could be a spare longer chunk, sometimes they throw them in the kits in case you end up fucking it up or whatever.
Also be sure to understand the difference between not properly grounded instrument and not grouned at all. Latter will have buzzing overwhelming the actual tone, the first will intermittently stop when you put your hands on the strings. If it stops when you put your hands on the strings then you soldered everything correctly but need to shield the cavity with the aforemetnioned shielding tape.

Literally just remove the pickups and everything and cover everything up, you can cut it into smaller chunks and let it overlap, it doesn't matter. Remember to also stick it on the bottom side of the pickguard. It doesn't have to be 100% perfect. That will pretty much remove any noise. Higher priced instruments don't have it nor need it because they instead use conductive paint that does the same job. You could use that too except it's 15 times more expensive than shielding copper tape.

They’re not.

No it doesn't. But it showcases discpline required to master something. Most people who do go through the lengths required to master something like that usually have vast knowledge and understanding of music theory, which means that they will naturally be able to compose music considerably more varied and therefore interesting to an above-casual listener.

You made the wrong point, these classically trained musicians rarely compose anything of their own but not for the lack fo ability but because of lack of desire to do so.

More like a lack of a creative mind. Skill is a tool for the realisation of man's creative potential. A "carpenter" who has $50k worth of equipment yet can't construct a basic bookshelf is worthless. So is a "musician" who can't compose anything of any worth.

Aside from Bach, none of the composers that make up the classical guitar repertory can be considered geniuses. Sor, Llobet, Villa-lobos, Tarrega, Carcassi: all second-rate compared to their more widely known peers and they would have been rightly forgotten had it not been for Segovia.

>lack of creative mind

Creativity in musical context is something that can and needs to be refined. Everyone can tackle it and everyone can improve massively. There are obviously people more talented than others but even they won't yield shit of use unless they constantly work on it. For every 8 bars of decent music created there are other 1000 bars of useless garbage made by the same person.

The main difference is that classically trained musicians don't feel the urge to make fun of the casual players for not wanting to put in the time to master their instrument which would open much more possibiltiies to them. Yet casual players always mock classically trained musicians.

There is also a clear cut unavoidable feeling of pointlessness to creating music unless you know that it will be performed live or at least be consumed in some sense. When you have such a monstrous command of your instrument, it's not hard to imagine how much personally satisfying is to perform complex pieces for your own personal amusement instead of writing simple music for simple masses.
If I possessed the ability to perform Shostakovich on piano, you better be sure I would do that for my own entertainment an hour a day instead of trying to put together shitty original music that is considerably limited by musicianship of the people I have the opportunity to work with.
I'm not even classically trained but I understand both sides. And these self-proclaimed creative minds never dare to share any of their work because they know it would immediately be subject to objective, professional dissection and critique.

>>
reminder that when all that classical music was composed, composing and improvising were expected of every musician and playing covers wasn't common practice

for example, bach was actually better known for improvising fugues in his day, and mozart composed sparse pieces he improvised over

today's culture of permanent nostalgia is a departure from the very attitudes that created the things you love so much, and that's why it's all dead. you'd rather listen to the same tunes over and over again than make new ones, because when sheet music for everything can be had and there's a recording to go with each song it's like asking someone who lives in the middle of a food court to cook their own meal.

I find joy in writing, I don't find joy in playing what I write to myself and no audience. If you ever spent any significant time trying to write a song you would understand this. There are clear cut phases of writing: initial idea > small change that usually improves everything ten fold > falling in love with the piece and replaying it to yourself over and over while refining small details and adding up > getting slightly bored and worn out of it > final changes. By the time you finalize it you are pretty much fed up with it because you spend so much time listening to it back and fourth. I don't know a single person that I ever was with in a band that ever listened to their final product/recorded songs or played them for themselves for their own leisure.

I'm not saying that. What I am saying right now is that you are really poor at extrapolating meaning from other people's sentences. And what I was saying is this:

If you spent serious time writing something, you will eventually get fed up with it due to so many repetitions and editing it until it's done. This is absolutely not debatable, anyone who ever wrote and arranged shit will agree with this. To go step further and perform the composition regularly for your own entertainment in your bedroom simply implies that you get off on the fact that the song is written by you instead of enjoying the song as a creative product. You are unable to separate the creation from yourself. Not wanting to do so doesn't mean one does not have self-esteem. Writing or performing music has fuck all to do with self-esteem.

I'm not saying I am unable to enjoy my own shit, when I hear it after some time has passed, if it's good I will usually like it even more and be proud. But I will not listen/perform it routinely alone, I would much rather either compose something new or play the songs live for an audience. This is what seems to fail over your head.

You're still mysticising what is essentially the classical equivalent of a cover band. Motorhead no longer exist, having bands dedicated to playing their songs live is kind of neat.

No, this is a problem with you, or with your composition. Maybe give it a break before playing it again like any other song.
>To go step further and perform the composition regularly for your own entertainment in your bedroom simply implies that you get off on the fact that the song is written by you instead of enjoying the song as a creative product.
No, it means it's good and fun to play. Again give it a rest and you'll like it again.

Oh so after throwing a tantrum you finally agree to be normal. It seems like the point went over your head and you set yourself up as an ass because you wanted to argue that badly.

>But I will not listen/perform it routinely alon
>ROUTINELY
Key word, everyone plays a variety of songs so they don't get sick of them. It's people who do not have a single composition of their own who are being mocked. People who have not improvised a bar in their life. Consumate classicalists that don't even try.

You know I like my own cooking. But I still eat out because if I had to eat my own cooking every night I would get sick of it.

This is a fact of life but I will not say something as stupid as this
>IF YOU EVER PUT ANY EFFORT INTO COOKING IN YOUR DAMN LIFE YOU WOULD BE SO SICK OF YOUR SHIT THAT YOU'D NEVER EAT IT AGAIN UNLESS YOU WERE A FUCKING NARCISSIST JERKING OFF TO HIS REFLECTION
No I put effort in and then I'm sick of it for a week or so and then, THEN, I can eat it.

Jazzmaster humbuckers are Alnico 2.
Jaguar humbucker is Alnico 3.
Jaguar single coil is Alnico 2.
Strat single coils are Alnico 5.
Strat humbuckers are Alnico 2.

Does this matter? A jag neck will be really far off a strat sound?
>>
>>88906942
this is pretty untrue

what does happen is you get so used to a guitar with mediocre or bad playability that you have no problem with it so it doesn't matter in the end, you just spend extra time getting used to playing around a retarded instrument

see: fender players
>>
>>88906967
Let's switch to a vernacular you seem more at home with then since you so insist on it.

You dumb fucking piece of shit with no reading comprehension.

>This is a problem with you or with your composition
Yeah, problem with my composition is that I like it so much that i on average spend 40-50 hours on it, recording all the instruments and fucking around with a lot of melody variations and it's completely my fault that by the time I am absolutely done with it it just so happens to coincide that I have also pretty much consumed it for quite a foreseeable time from a listener's perspective as well. You dumb fucking three-chord strumming, epiphone-owning, .9 string using nigger faggot.

>The way you are passionately decrying anything but playing other peoples shit does

I'm not decrying anything, I'm merely stating that there is a physical satisfaction to being able to perform music, one that you quite obviously cannot fathom nor comprehend because you don't possess the ability to perform it to begin with. I am able to get enjoyment from playing music in general, be it mine or someone else's, who wrote it matters little to me when performing for MY OWN enjoyment. To you obviously it matters and are unable to enjoy something unless it's concocnted by your majestic, genius, creative nigger faggot mind but hey it's totally not narcissistic, its just that your music is SO GODDAMN MUCH better than anything out there, only the best for the autismal nigger faggot who probably didn't have a single live gig in his entire adult life.

You are creative equivalent of evolutionary dead end, natural selection, a musical incel if you will. It's for the best that you don't play with others because nothing enjoyable can come out of it, I can imagine how fun you are to be around at practice when you are this enjoyable as a conversationalist.

You dumb fucking, seething, coping nigger.

A beginner won't know what playability feels like for the most part. That's what comes into play down the line when buying another guitar.

What will someone who doesn't even know how to hold a guitar know about judging playability? How can someone who doesn't even know what a chord is or how to form a single melodic phrase know about how a guitar should feel? It amazes me by the amount of fucking morons who give out such retarded "advice" on buying a guitar instead of anything practical. A first guitar is a learner guitar, not a permanent one. It's something you get so you LEARN about the guitar and acquire the knowledge needed to actually make judgment on what you want out of a guitar. As a beginner, you don't know what you want, you don't know what a fucking guitar is, so "feel around and just get what you think is right" is utterly moronic. It's like telling someone who doesn't even know how to turn a car on because they can't work the clutch to "sit down inside and feel around". No, what you get is something cheap, very eaasy to maintain, and what is as close to the market standard you'll encounter with other guitars in the future. You don't get a fucking fanxy porche because you will wear it down and ruin any resale value due to not lnowing how to properly operate it, you will not be able to maintain it because parts are expensive and doccumentation/online advice isn't as common as for your generic commuter, and you'll end up wasting unnecessary amount of money on something that you'll realise doesn't feel right anyway. There's a reason why beginner guitars like squiers and pacificas exist. Just don't be a retard by buying a squier tele or jag with bridge features that are very specific to these models and these models only.

I was the guy asking and Idk about the jag/Tele but thanks, I’ll take that as just buy what you are happy to spend since a player isn’t really much expense to me and looks good right now since I’ll develop my taste eventually anyway and if I like the look of a guitar I’ll want it more.

I don't care about colour really. Just asking if MIA Mustang is worth a little money over MIM Vintera Jag if I'm already having a lipstick single coil gitar.

MIM Jags Player series are looking good, but they don't have a original jag contors and switching and I heard that they are poorly made (even worse than top Squiers).

>>88907285
the MICRO dark, not the dark terror. should be like 20-50 bucks more expensive, I think.
>>
>>88907264
I'd suggest one of those as a second guitar. The idea is you buy a cheap 100-150 buck strat/superstrat, you get familiar with how it feels and plays and then maybe half a year down the line, maybe a year, you buy something that is completely different. Different scale length, bridge, maybe no tremolo as opposed to the trem you have. That way you have a point of reference and comparison. You know what both having a shorter scale and longer scale feels like, you know what having no trem and having a trem is like, you've physically experienced and know the difference between normal and jumbo frets and the effect they have on your playing. By that point you now know enough about what the different features of a guitar actually entail because you tested them under playing conditions (as opposed to just clueless groping you'd be doing during your first guitar centre visit) and will be able to make a well educated judgment for your third guitar on which it will actually make sense to throw down serious money.

Learn songs, not patterns. Listen to and transcribe John Fahey, Mississippi John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotton. It’s all simple first position open chords, just concentrate on the right hand rhythms.

How do you get past the intermediate plateau? I'm good at blues scale noodling and power chord riffs and cowboy chord stuff and I'm not sure where to go from there. I'm thinking of maybe getting into fingerstyle, but I wouldn't know where to begin with that, and I might want to learn some music theory but that seems boring and overly complex.
