You may want to call or email them first, because they may not be authorized to sell MusicMan guitars outside of the U.S. The price difference you're seeing may not be your shop's fault, but the markup the distributor for Singapore makes.

Re: ##?

Can someone explain to me how double #'s work please? Thanks. It's when you need to sharp or augment an interval and the note that's being move is already a sharp. So if you wanted to make an Augmented 3rd above "A": A major third from "A" is "C#". An augmented third would entail one more half step...

Double sharps get me every time. :D 11th being the 4th oct higher. I prob always think of it in the wrong manner. Neck wise I play a G on the low E & under that on the A string is a C.

2.50-3.15khz is where the real clarity is for guitar signals. Try a boost up there and see if you don't cut through more.

So I was watching this movie today and something seemed...

more familiar than usual. As you can tell from my profile location, I go to Wesleyan University in sunny old Connecticut (emphasis on the sarcasm of "sunny"). There was a movie made loosely based on the school in 1994 called PCU (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110759/), and guess who wrote and played ...

Ok, we need to know a few things first. What kind of guitar are you playing, what kind of amp do you have, and what sort of effects are you trying to incorporate (wah, phaser, compression, etc). As a rule of thumb, my two favorite funk tones are the scooped fenderish sound, and the super dry DI box ...
