  1. yes, good points! reason i was leaning towards saddle issue is the two strings that are the main culprits are the two on they "compensated" saddle portion...it's not a straight across saddle; it's one that has that section that's king or dropped/angled a bit. hmmm...
  2. yup, palm mute at saddle, as i've often done over the years, but this annoying harmonic stuff is a new development. never had the issue before with muting.
  3. hello....so i was wondering if you have any theories on this one. my lefty J-50 is going on 9 years old or so now...never had any issues, but i realized recently when MUTING the strings and playing some lead bits up the neck around the 9th/10/11/12th frets there is a strong harmonic effect when any string is plucked on the B and G strings, the moment any of them are fretted. even the lightest touch causes a harmonic ring on any fret past the 9th. i took it in for adjustment, and it seemed to be taken care of but not three days later the harmonics are back. ANY ideas what's up? should i look into a new saddle, maybe?
  4. not very original, but i call my Gretsch anniversary guitar "Gretschen" sometimes. <_<
  5. Overall, taking into account sound, playability, and overall coolness, the Rickenbacker 360V64/12-string.
  6. a beauty! may i ask why you are parting with it?
  7. FANTASTIC!! great resolution to the problem!
  8. Been in several bands over the years, and two guitars was always plenty (usually one was on acoustic, one on electric). We added a third, briefly, but realized more isn't always better.
  9. Wife #1 tolerated my guitar collecting, and I amassed a sizeable collection, but sadly sold all when we divorced. Wife #2, tolerates. she got me a Rickenbacker and declared my collecting days "over." haha. :(
  10. alt-country star tift merrit plays a gibson with similar look: red guitar
  11. Yes, truly a great, if expected, loss. He was a great performer. I had the pleasure of seeing him play (he must've been ninety-three) and was amazed at his dexterity on his little red Gibson. I had been in San Francisco for a friend's wedding, and happened to glance at a paper while I was there. Honeyboy was not only playing that night, but was walking distance from my hotel! $17.00 later I had my ticket to Delta blues heaven. He gave a great show and was kind enough to sit onstage and indulge his fan's questions after the gig. He was the most vibrant, lucid 90+ year old, and could easily have passed for a man in his 70's. Anyway, I thanked him for his time, we hook hands and I now have a Library of Congress cd of his material signed by the man himself as a treasured souvenir of that memorable night.
  12. cool. i do believe i will give them a try next string change!
  13. they have a 30 day no questions money back guarantee...if they don't refund the price of the case or extend the 10% off, then return the guitar for a full refund and take your business elsewhere!
  14. excuse the tinny sound, horrible tee shirt and out of tune-ness, just wanted to post a quick clip: http://s87.photobucket.com/albums/k133/hardmodskin/?action=view&current=Movieon2011-07-30at2229.mp4
  15. yeah, i noticed they make all sorts of strings. they even have custom packaged sets on the pickofthericks Rickenbacker parts site.
  16. stumbled upon this brand today---never heard of them before. has anyone tried this brand?Curt Mangan Strings
  17. tried them before on a couple of my Rickenbackers. loved 'em. the flat wounds were Pricey though!
  18. love the inlay work on the neck...the rest is lovely too---but minus the butterflies!
  19. ahh, cool...yeah, it's a little squirrelly with 9's---will def switch back to 10's. so the thicker the guage, the better to counteract a heavy fretting hand?
