Steve uses Ernie Ball Super Slinky .009-.042 gauge.

I used to use these, now I use DR Pure Blues .009-.042 gauge.

Still thick enough to get fat low-ends, but great for bending and chording.

Mojo has a sustainer in the neck, along with Ibanez Breeds in the middle and bridge position. Plus, it's shiny (rock mirror JEM finish). And, it has Blue LED lights for dots instead of the standard or tree of life inlay work.

Re: Sorry to due this but another Amp question.

I too am also interested in getting a new amp. I'm thinking of along the lines of a Fender Deville. They're great for blues and are extremly Loud. I"m more of a metal guy but I need a decent sound that can Cut through the drums without blasting any ear drums. Like I said, I'm interested in getting ...

I have atm (not for much longer) a solid state amp (that is also broken) and I get a very irretating noise from it when I play... ...

If you're talking about the springs in the trem cavity, yes, tissues/paper will dampen the noise produced. It's actually quite loud, and cutting back on this helps. If you're talking about Cycle Hum, etc., go out and get a Boss Noise Supressor pedal, or Fender Hot Noiseless pickups. They work like a...

Actually, I just put Evergreens on my bass, and I couldn't be happier. That's odd, I feel that they're very bright and fresh... you probably got a bad pair. Try 'em out again.

If you don't mind sanding down that one spot, use 600-Grit sandpaper followed by steel wool.

If you want an even smoother finish, put primer directly on the wood being sanded, it fills in the grains and pores in the wood and makes it smoother.

Your best bet is to go in store and try both of them out, then decide which one you like better.

Personally, I'd choose an Eclipse, because it's faster and more versatile. But, the H3000 is still good.

there are diagrams like that for a whole bunch of guitarists on www.guitargeek.com (some are a bit out of the date but they're still cool) Yeah, I'll agree that's pretty cool...

As the saying goes, "a little spit and glue goes a long way." Try putting some tape (literally- any kind should do) over the chip, and then smooth it out- it'll feel softer, if not the same as, the original paint job (though I don't know... tape can't compete with french polish or laquer). But tape ...

I've only had one experience with DR strings, and unfortunently it was very negative. I bought a pack of bass strings to re-string my ibanez SRX505. After I tuned up, the strings were totally out of wack, intonation was off, and certain notes made really weird overtones, and they smelled funny(jk)....

What are flatwound strings for? Do they impart a differnt tone or something? Flatwounds vs. roundwounds... it depends on the tone you're looking for. Flatwound are more popular with jazz players, and have a slightly warmer, duller tone. They feel different on the fingers, too. Personally I've alway...
