Welcome to the guitar thread. New month. New thread. Everything related to guitar and bass guitar goes here to not clutter up our poor music section. Here's my stuff: [IMG]https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/388671_2868336268061_1249449205_3207207_89677564_n.jpg[/IMG]
I just got a DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion and a DiMarzio PAF DP-103 36th Anniversary for my Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH, thoughts?
i may prefer my fender jazz but this Ibanex SRX430 my brother gave me after ppacking up playing is pretty cool. It's got those big fat pickups I like the look of so much, and it looks great in white with a black pickguard
[QUOTE=plecy;34497418]I just got a DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion and a DiMarzio PAF DP-103 36th Anniversary for my Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH, thoughts?[/QUOTE] I use DiMarzio PAF-7's and I think they sound unbelieveable I know a few people with the DiMarzio DP100 super distortions and they love them. DiMarzio has always been my choice pick anyway
Put a DP100 into my Sterling last night, but I messed something up because it sounds like a single coil at the moment haha. The pickup was in another guitar, and the wiring was a mess, so I am guessing a wire is in contact with another wire that it's not supposed to be. I think they might be out of phase.
So I'm looking for a bass. Something I can gig with but I won't break the bank. Doesn't have to sound fucking incredible, i'll be playing pop to agressive pop punk stuff mostly. Anyway, a quick search found these two things.

Thoughts?
I don't recognize that Bass, but judging from the price tag alone, it's probably complete shit.
Johnson's are utter pieces of shit. YMMV but you do get what you pay for. Carlsbro's aren't too bad amps in my experience, but I wouldn't expect much from the bass, regardless of the fluff in the description
OK fuck the bass then. I can trust carlsboros. They always sound decent. Quite annoyed that I found one that I'd used before and know well was for sale for like £45 but is about 200 miles away. Back on the hunt.
I looked at the other listings on gumtree for your location, there's an Aria for £140 and Aria are pretty respectable. [url]http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/aria-igb-integra-series-bass-guitar--stunning/95631765[/url]
Ugh, I need to buy pickup covers again. I know I'm the only guy who thought triple shots were a good idea, but they're crap. The switches wear out real easily and installing them is a cunt.
[QUOTE=plecy;34497418]I just got a DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion and a DiMarzio PAF DP-103 36th Anniversary for my Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH, thoughts?[/QUOTE] well the super distortion is the best pickup ever made so you've done well [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] though mine is kind of on the noisy side but it adds character I guess
[url]http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/laney-hcm65-bass-amp/95749839[/url] Think I might go for this amp, I've played one before and remember it being good. DI output, always good. Back on a bass hunt.
For some reason whenever I touch the strings on my bass, I feel a little bit of electric shock... any idea on what's causing this/how to stop it?
There are quite a few mexican jazz's on ebay, some quite low prices. I've played one, really enjoyed it. Any else used one?
I gig a Mexican jazz as my secondary bass. It's great.

The switches wear out real easily and installing them is a cunt.[/QUOTE] The Triple Shot is a good idea in theory. I suppose being the first of it's kind there's gonna be some teething problems but it is an interesting concept. On saying that I'd much rather have an obvious if slightly unsightly switch on the main portion of my guitar I guess
[QUOTE=TheEconomy;34509039]For some reason whenever I touch the strings on my bass, I feel a little bit of electric shock... any idea on what's causing this/how to stop it?[/QUOTE] Could be some wiring problem inside, the grounds I think. Check what your amp is plugged into, and if the cable is good. It can be somewhat dangerous. I'm not a electrical wizard, though.
[QUOTE=TheEconomy;34509039]For some reason whenever I touch the strings on my bass, I feel a little bit of electric shock... any idea on what's causing this/how to stop it?[/QUOTE] Might be something wrong with your amp
You may also just generate a lot of static for some reason and are discharging yourself through your bass's ground?

I'm just feeling kinda shit about this because it's more money into a guitar when, if I knew better in advance, I could have avoided what I've done to it in the interim and bought a new guitar with the money saved.
Everybody makes mistakes. I blew nearly £600 on the entirely wrong amp for me. Ended up flipping it a year later for half that. Look on it as an investment in knowledge :)

do you guys prefer thicker necks or thinner necks?
[QUOTE=ThatCrazyGmanV2;34525017]do you guys prefer thicker necks or thinner necks?[/QUOTE] I prefer thick necks when the neck is narrow and the other way around.
[QUOTE=absinthe;34523525]I fucking hate gibson but goddamn I love everything about this guitar [url]http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/gibson-limited-run-les-paul-melody-maker-electric-guitar[/url] and it's on sale[/QUOTE] that's a cheapo gibson as well, low low price of $400 for a starter gibson!
[QUOTE=ThatCrazyGmanV2;34525017]do you guys prefer thicker necks or thinner necks?[/QUOTE] I like both, but there good thin necks and bad thin necks, and the same for thick ones
