  1. Thanks BluesKing777 and everybody else, some very good info and ideas to think about there. Obviously money is a real issue, so I cant go spending big cash ! plus I do really love my Epi EJ200. I really like the idea of using my Marshall AS100D as a monitor, cos i DO get a very nice sound from that, although would I be right in thinking if I send the mic through that too, the sound guy will have no EQ control over the mic alone? only an overall EQ control of mic/guitar from the amp? If I suggest at a gig sending the mic through my amp where I play in town, I can imagine the sound guy laughing at me too ! haha So, I think conclusion is, either play 'truly unplugged' gigs and satisfy my need for that or use the amp as monitor, mic DI'd as normal but with very low volume through the floor monitors.
  2. WIll phantom power drain it then modoc_333??
  3. Sorry, didnt explain myself fully, I am a solo acoustic singer/songwriter. Basically, those BBQ gigs, where everyones gathered round and its the natural sounds from the guitar unplugged and also your voice unplugged you could say. in reality prob not possible, because to play to bigger crowds, you must amplify the sound. Guess its all about a good sound man and bypassing the floor monitors would be advantageous too. Maybe I'll just try not having much in the monitors and be safe in the knowledge the sound thats reachin the crowd is ok.
  4. Cheers EuroAussie, I have an Epi EJ200 CE, already fitted with the pickups though, everyone says it sounds great to the audience, i just wanna somehow get that unplugged sound. A friend who is a sound engineer, has said the best way would be to use in ear monitor systems, these aren't cheap though !
  5. Im after any advice on trying to emulate an unplugged sound live and if anyone has achieved this and there techniques on do doing so? I've played quite a few acoustic gigs and pretty much came to conclusion that I dont think i'll ever sound as good live as i do sat with just me a guitar no mics no plugging the guitar in etc, you know when you really feel the guitar in your belly and your more related to the instrument, but how do I take that live? Ive thought about maybe having absolutley nothing in the monitors, one reason being, I could leave out a sound hole cover as this might mute the natural acoustic sound? The main reason being I'm thinking this way i could totally isolate me and the guitar from the sound reaching the audience, so the sound man could get me sounding sweet to the audience but i would only hear myself singing with the guitar like it would be totally unplugged at home??? would this work. thanks Scoff
  6. HI, well its kind of a general problem, using different PA desks over the year in various practice rooms, but also if i DI at a gig it does this too. Through my amp I have never had a low warning light.
  7. I have an Epi EJ200ce with the Sonic EQ, when I plug and play through my marshall acoustic amp, the batteries last for ever when I plug into a PA desk they drain more and I have to replace a LOT more often! Why is this? thanks
  8. Yeh, the batteries a new one. Also, I can't find my warranty etc, I bought this from a reputable dealer, but I'm in the UK, also, would I have to send the guitar the Gibson in the USA to be repaired????
  9. HI, does anyone know of a soundhole cover that fits the EJ200 CE?? Because this has a neck pickup, it squares off the top of the soundhole!!! so frustrating. Ive had a normal rubber one and sanded it down before but its horrible! Surely someone makes them with square top??? cheers

  12. HELP !!! my beautiful EJ 200 CE has started crackling ! At the moment it basically cant be played, ive tried a different lead to illiminate that, still the same. Ive moved the blend right to the other side and seems to still be making the noise, suggesting its on both pickups!?? Only this 2 years, but lost my warranty details etc, anyone got any tips,or is it bascially go to the guitar tech and pay to get it fixed thanks scoff
  13. HEY thanks man, thats really cleared things up for me !
  14. Hi, I have an beautiful Epiphone EJ200CE! I have a couple of problems, firstly It has 2 pickups, and i'm a little confused as to which to use. I have read that you shouldnt use the MAG (neck pickup) on its own, only use it blended with the FLEX(body pickup)? is this true? I have also read that the flex is already a blend of the 2 pickups? is this also true. So which single pickup should i use (as other elct acoustics) Or if i use both, does this mean i have to use a lead from both (perhaps a silly question). problem 2 is, the flex in body pickup has stopped working!, only the nanomag on the neck is working? Could this be electrics or the pickup itself or both perhaps. The nanomag that is working is a little glitchy too and seems to somewhat 'spike' or distort if i play it harder through a PA that i have previously had no problems? All help is greatly appreciated, I love my guitar and Epiphone and just wanna get the best sound possible from it. thanks Ian
  15. HI ! EMERGENCY !!! gig tonight, and my action needs a tweak, i have a revearsed truss, so its at the tuning end so, if im looking down neck towards the body, do i turn left to losen or right? i think its left?
