Would you guys recommend that I take a BOSS ME-20 which my friend is offering me for $150 AUS? Or should I hold out and get a bigger multi-effects pedal?
[QUOTE=kitthehacker;28649080]Would you guys recommend that I take a BOSS ME-20 which my friend is offering me for $150 AUS? Or should I hold out and get a bigger multi-effects pedal?[/QUOTE] I didn't like the ME-20 at all when i used it (after having experience with the ME-50 and ME-70). You should save up for something bigger if you can, the usability is just not good enough imo :smile: EDIT: On top of that, i got a really sweet petrucci-ish tone out of the me-50, i guess that should convince you.
I wouldn't. Multi effect pedals are tooo digital for a tone freak like me :smug:
Anyone heard of the AdrenaLinn III (without just googling it)? My mate has one, it's fantastic. John Mayer uses one too.
[QUOTE=Pepin;28648068]I go to fix the intonation and guess what, the intonation is spot on. Both the open string and twelfth fret harmonic match up. But the other notes are quite off, mainly above the twelfth fret. Anybody have a suggestion?[/QUOTE] Intonate them? I dont think there's any other way really.

Uhh guys, I think my guitar is fucked. So I got 2 new batteries for it, and it sounds exactly the same as when the batteries are out. Very quiet. I practically have to hit the strings to get the sound past the noise gate. Any clue about what's going on here?
Are the batteries in the right way? lol
[QUOTE=LasGunz;28653601]Are the batteries in the right way? lol[/QUOTE] 9-volts. They have to be. Only one way to connect 'em. I'd try a new cable before anything else, especially if you are using cheap cables. They're known to come apart on the inside and/or pull apart from the 1/4" connectors.
I have tried 3 cables, revealed that one is broken (:v:) and the other two produce the same results
[QUOTE=tommyc225;28653697]I have tried 3 cables, revealed that one is broken (:v:) and the other two produce the same results[/QUOTE] Uhhhhhh...check solder points on the inside of the guitar? Probably won't be any with the pickups (assuming they're EMG's since your pickups are obviously active, and most EMG's are solder-free), so maybe the output jack?
What guitar?

Any at all?

Figured out the issue with my intonation, needed new strings. I didn't think the strings I had on there were too worn down, but the new strings I put on are right on the money with the higher frets.
My dad sold my brothers guitar on ebay to some polish woman and she recieved it yesterday, today she messaged my dad saying "Item not as described!! The griffin inside is cracked". Puzzled, my dad asks me what the christ a 'griffin' in a guitar is. I told him there's nothing in a guitar called a griffin and I messaged one of my guitar tech friends to ask too and he said he's heard nothing about it. My dad asks the polish twat to explain what a griffin was and her reply: "The griffin is damaged by the corps (as in core), item not as described. Probably packaging, we could sack potatoes better than you pack a guitar". [B]what?[/B] Now she wants a refund for some bullshit "fault" with the guitar. Buyers remorse, anyone?
You can't honestly expect her to use a guitar with a broken griffin It's one of the most vital parts of the instrument
Yeah man, I would never accept a guitar with a broken griffin.
i once broke this guitars griffin in a shop i had to buy the entire thing, now i'm stuck with a gibson with a broken griffin. such a shame

Okay so I opened up my SG and there's a bunch of wires in there held together by a couple of cable ties with a 2 wires (black and grey) going to the jack and another two (red and black) going to the battery compartment. I tried fiddling around to see if anything would catch but nothing seems to respond to it. :| [editline]17th March 2011[/editline] All solder points seem fine too, the knobs and the pup selector are the only solder points I can see.

[QUOTE=Kingy_why;28656689]can you find the solder points for the jack?[/QUOTE] I think so, but I'd have to unscrew the socket to pull it out and get a better look. Just used my older guitar with the same amp settings, lead etc and it works fine. Definitely a problem with the guitar then.
