  1. I guess what i meant to say is that i want to get close to his distortion but not necessarily mimic it, i want to have my own individuality in it if that makes any sense. That overdrive/distortion might be nice i'll have to try it out. I heard the ds-1 isn't necessarily a great pedal though
  2. He does use a DS-2 but I think a distortion pedal is too much for my needs that's why i am thinking of an overdrive. Ive actually played with the tube screamer and it was ok a little light though. I probably sound retarded right now but yeah. I'm leaning towards the sound of the Digitech bad monkey have you personally tried it or heard good things about it?
  3. I'm looking for a good overdrive pedal maybe even a light distortion pedal that can possibly give me a nice chili peppers tone. Any help would be appreciated.
  4. Ah i hope they didn't switch out the pickups that would be just horrible. As for what you said i'm pretty positive that your right and for whatever reason he needed to fool with the electronics i will never know. I'm only 15 so i'm not going to be messing with the pickups, but I have guitar lessons there tomorrow so going to send it right back to them
  5. I got my Les Paul back today after being in the shop for about two months with a broken neck. When I got it back i immediately strung it up and plugged it in only to see that there was barely any sound on clean and i had barely any crunch or tone in my distortion, it just sounded clean with a slight fuzz. I fooled with my volume switches and the the volume switches on the amp. I even put the amp to 10 and there was still hardly any sound, and im playing through a 100 watt amp! I know it's not the amp because all my guitars played fine through the amp, I also didn't see any loose wiring, so if anyone could help out that would be great. p.s. there is also a scratchy sound, like when you take the jack out while the amps still on, when you turn the volume to about 5 on both treble and rhythm.
  6. Ah ok then thank you for pointing that out i was just curious if anyone knew what some eq settings would come close or some advice on setting up eq's. I also am just running straight through the amp no effect pedals at this point. I have been experimenting a little and have a little bit more and getting closer to a nice tone but just not there yet which is extremely upsetting :(
  7. Hi i have a F*nder Frontman 212r amplifier, and i would like a little bit of help with setting it up. I am used to playing with a multi effect pedal, and I am not to good at setting up eq's. I really want a nice metal distortion that isn't muddy, as of right now i have lows at 10 mids at 5 and highs at 4. I have the top 3 strings (E,A, and D) down nice and bassy but still clear but my next three (A,D, and G) are way too trebly for my taste, if you could help me at all that would be great thanks guys I already posted this in amps, but there's hardly anyone in there so hopefully i will get a fast response here

  9. For 150 dollars i think i would get it repaired, i hope the cosmetic damage isnt to noticeable as the guitar is in excellent condition no scratches or dents at all besides this. I try to take care of my les paul and my bass but this was just one of those rare happenings i guess. Anywho anyone know if the lifetime warranty will cover this? what the hell does that warranty cover anyway? Ahh i see what you mean by the strap my grandfather has one on his old 50's esquire(man thats a cool guitar)
  10. yea ive heard about regluing helps it out, i hope that it does work being better. If it ends up costing over 300.00 to fix it im gonna get some of my family who are decent at woodworking to try and gently pry the head off and re-glue it. A leather lacing conjunction im not so sure i follow what you mean by that
  11. i know im hurting alot from it i just hope i will be able to get it fixed without costing me a fortune. im gonna buy strap locks now i never thought i needed em cus my strap has never fallen off before this is the first time it has ever fallen off on me
  12. It started off as a usual little jam session, me getting ready to play guitar had my strap on my guitar everything normal, until i went to put the strap over my shoulder and the top of the strap comes off sending beloved Les Paul straight to the floor, popping strings and degluing the nut as well as cracking both sides of the head heres some pics. Outa curiosity tell me how you would fix it I can't/won't cus im horrible at fixing things, somehow a wiz at breaking them I will talk to some places and hopefully have it shipped off this week
  13. man yall make my decisions hard hah ill have to say that i think the dot will be a great value. I do think ill play an electric alot more than an acoustic especially if its semi hollow
  14. mmm ok is see that helps me alot i think that an acoustic/electric will best suit me for now and i can always get a dot down the road. Thanks for all the help guys i really appreciate it
  15. oh no i know it wont hold up. Lets see how i can phrase this... would it be better since i only own electrics to stick with an electric that can be partially acoustic sounding, or buy a full bodied acoustic?
