  1. Snapjack sells them directly. They also have them on MF: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/navigation?q=snapjack&st=
  2. I like the new snapjack cables. They have magnetic jacks, so if you step on the cable, there is less of a jack of breaking the output jack. They are VERY solidly built, with pretty thick insulation. They are around $35 for a 15 foot, I don't know if that's too much, but it is a little pricey.
  3. Les Paul himself is a jazz player. Iansmitchell pretty much said all of them. The ultimate decider is you though. Go to a store and try them out and pick the one that feels right.
  4. Very True. I also don't get why people swap pickups so much, either. You have a lot more versatility by turning a knob on your amp. But technically, it's impossible to get the same sound twice. Not even with the same setup. Can you get close enough? Yes.
  5. Yup, great guitar. Let's leave all discussion at that.
  6. Yup. That's what happened with some of my guitars.
  7. Go through the guitar again and make sure no soldering points came undone. Recheck everything, even the spots you didn't solder, something may have been pulled lose.
  8. They did a limited run of those about a year ago, but they were only $100, so that one isn't a very good price. Iansmitchell, it probably does have bad tuners and probably is made of plywood, but they aren't p-100's. They came with real p-90's, and people around here seem to like those.
  9. I think the guitar looks nice. It's pretty handsome. But I will agree, the headstock is pretty annoying.
  10. There are a few people that I know that are better players than me, but I'm more knowledgeable in theory, chords, tone, and gear (thanks guys). They don't know what they're playing (note wise), they can just play it and play it well.
  11. Or if that side of the pickup is just to close to the stings, you just lower that side of the pickup by turning the gold screw on on that side of the pickup. it adjusts how high or low it is. There's one on each side.
  12. Fender amps are really bright IMO. That may be the cause of the problem, but if you don't want to spend new money on a amp ( or pickups), you can lower the pole pieces under the E and B string. It's the screw on the pickup under the string. This will lower the output of the strings, making the sound less bright. Once you lowered them to your liking, you can put the tone control back to wear you like it. I've got the same guitar as you, and I back off the tone to 7 on the bridge, just because I think my guitar and the rig it's with sounds best there. It doesn't make it muddy though, just rolls of the highs a bit.
  13. Mine is a 50 watt Traynor YCV50Blue. I like the amp a lot, it sounds really good. Seems a lot of you guys have a fender blues deluxe or hot rod deluxe. Those are pretty good sounding amps. A friend of mine want me to mod the master knob so it's not so loud from 0-2.
