That chick is cute, Gene, but that seems pretty sexist.

(I keed, that hollowbody bass is gorgeous. Also, chick with a thinline Tele with WRHs for the win, even if they are Fender's shitty fake Wide Ranges that she should probably replace with Novak vintage reproductions)

So, I'm selling my Epi Dot and an Epi Firebird VII and searching for a guitar that's got a vintage vibe, and is good for jazz and blues.  I'm leaning toward a Hagstrom Viking at this point.  Any suggestions? 

Keep the Dot, sell the Firebird, and get the Viking. Easy!

All wrong man, sell the dot, sell the firebird, sell your home, and get a Gibson Firebird.

Get a good Telecaster copy, throw on a Bigsby and some new pickups

Good to go!

Pssh, give me $700 and I'll build one for you with a Bigsby.

Eh, I like the Dot.  It sounds good, it's a gorgeous guitar, and the string action is unbelievable.  But, the neck is a baseball bat, and a slight change in temperature and the thing is all kinds of out of whack.  As for the Epi Firebird, it's a truly great guitar.  Plays like butter, sounds amazing, but it's a little too gawdy for me.  Red with gold hardware- not my cup 'o tea.  I'm really digging that Hagstrom, though.  Here's hoping some CL'er will jump on these.

So, guys.  I've been contemplating it for many moons now, and I'm down to either picking the Fender Thinline Telecaster '72 reissue that's been at the store near me for ages (I really like the neck and it's got some wicked sustain), an Epiphone Dot or Sheraton, or some kind of Gretsch.

Guitar players, I have a question!

I'm thinking of buying a 4x10 bass cabinet for my guitar amp. Do you think this is a good idea? Also, would it be feasible to play my bass through my guitar amp and this cabinet?

You can play a guitar through a bass amp without a problem, but I've been told that a bass through a guitar amp is not a good idea.  Not sure if it's true, though.

As long as the speakers are bass speakers, playing bass --> guitar amp --> bass cabinet should be fine.

Yeah the way I heard* it the main problem with playing a bass through a guitar amp are the speakers. With my projected set up that won't be a problem.



* meaning: I basically killed the speakers (and only the speakers, mind) on my Fender FM212 with too much low frequencies.


EDIT: missed Christophe's post, I hope he's right!

How are the high notes when you play a guitar on a bass amp?  I imagine the low ends to come out really nicely distorted, but do the high ends just, like, drop off after a certain point?

That's not how it works, heh. When the signal's processed, it just puts special emphasis on certain frequencies. It doesn't cut off high notes, it just makes the attack punchier and the sustain thicker.

Josh Homme used to play through bass amps in Kyuss. He typically used an Ampeg or a Bassman, iirc.

My comrades, I have decided on a guitar project.  The tele bass idea fell through because I failed to win the shortscale neck.  So, I'm building a telecaster styled guitar out of a lot of different parts.  It'll have a mini humbucker in the neck and a tele single coil in the bridge.  However, because of the ridiculous electronics I plan on wiring into this thing, it will have...brace yourselves...

11 separate pickup combinations!

-A 4 way switch to allow both pickups to be wired together in series as well as parallel
-a push pull to turn the humbucker into a single coil
-a push pull to throw the pickups out of phase

Also going to repaint it.  Maybe British racing green or dark teal with black pickguard

That doesn't sound like you need a refret; a crown and polish should do fine and is really pretty easy to do.

Probably try out some Fender or Squire Jazz or Precision basses.

Eh, that's not the only thing. The frets are also enormous, and I don't need/want/like frets that big. I like Fender's medium-jumbo frets a lot better than these railroad tracks.

I own the cheapest Les Paul-shaped guitar known to man.  It's an Epi Les Paul Special-II that was used and on sale.  It goes out of tune if you leave it alone for an hour or more (this is utter exaggeration) or capo it (this is not).

However, since I am such an epic guitar master, it makes up for it. 

Also, it has no pickguard, which makes it look about twice as good, and has a beautiful cherry sunburst finish.  It looks basically like this, but I think mine looks better.  I don't know why.  I just do.

I'm in the process of doing this right now! Really the best thing is learn to play walking bass in any key and ask to play bass for a band.* There's no better teacher than experience.**

* If you are a competent lead guitarist this should come naturally- it's basically just thinking of a simple lead guitar riff and making it even simpler, following chord and key changes, and learning to play a repetitive melody.*** Also remember, octaves are your friends.

** Mind you, if you've never picked up a fretted string instrument before, you may want to get a teacher or at least a book or something. This really only applies when you know some basic music theory and are comfortable in a band setting which it sounds like Led Hendrix is.

*** This is actually the hardest part for me, personally. As a lead guitarist I'm used to improvising, which means that my mind moves on to a new musical idea as soon as or before I'm done playing the first. What this means when I play bass is that I can never consistently play the same riff or musical idea throughout a song- I keep on varying it slightly and this is a pain in the ass for everyone else involved.

That or just steal every riff John Paul Jones ever played. That one's pretty foolproof, since that's all anybody else ever does.

Come on Matt, Bo Diddley designed that thing, and you know how big an effect he had on me when I met him. Besides, that is infinitely radder than even the raddest of Eastwoods or Danelectros.

Besides, 22 frets and awesome placement of the neck pickup (a Gretsch humbucker, at that!) at the -same time-. It's basically every guitar I've ever wanted, and that's before knowing who designed it.

Affordable, high quality Thunderbird alternative:

DeArmond JetStar

I'm making a huge mistake letting more people know about this company as it is. These guitars are only appreciating in value more as time goes on and more people rediscover them. I need to get my ass on investing in a few before it's too late.

I really want a G5122 Electromatic or a Duo Jet.

If only Duo Jets were half expensive as they were...*Sigh.*

I just bought the poor-man's Duo Jet.

Got a Pro Jet with a Bigsby on it.

See, I considered that for a minute, but I really want the Filtertrons and the tone switching circuitry.  I really did like the Pro Jet's feel, so I suppose if I want to be frugal ('cause come on, there's a difference of a grand and a half to two grand there) I could get one.

Curtis Novak does mini-humbucker sized FilterTron reproductions that would most likely drop into a Pro Jet.
