Gary Moore’s Guitars and Gear

Boy could he play! Anyhow, the metal, hair, and power pop bands of those days all put good, strong guitar soloing up front in the mix, and I enjoyed it. I automatically block out vocals and lyrics, by the way, so I pay no attention to them! Apparently he had some prototypes made by a Western Canadian company, though those my never have gone into production.

Hondo gets little respect from most guitar aficionados, but it really should, both because it contributed quite a bit to guitar history and actually made some pretty good guitars though not all, it must be admitted. Hondo was founded by Freed and Tommy Moore in with the intention to open up guitar production in Korea, at that time a non-player in the guitar game.

How to Date Fender Pickups

Tweet on Twitter Mention the subject of American acoustic guitars and one of the first names that will undoubtedly pop into your head will be C. A pretty impressive achievement. Bring up the topic of electrics, and Martin is hardly the first name of recall. Most coverage of the Martin brand is focused, quite rightly, on their substantial acoustic achievements.

Apr 30,  · That said Dimarzio is very good at identifying their older pickups that are not labelled. Just yesterday a guy from the JCF forum posted an unmarked Dimarzio that looked to be vintage and he thought it was a PAF Joe.

To understand the guitar, you need to know a little about the company. In he opened a facility to sell sheet music and organs. In Hoshino opened a manufacturing facility called Hoshino Gakki Ten, to produce its own musical instruments. By , Hoshino began in the Spanish guitar business and sold guitars domestically under the brand name, Ibanez-Salvador. It seems that Asian and European companies like to put Spanish sounding names on guitars, with thoughts it would increase buying potential.

Around this time Hoshino started making copies of U. The replicas were too good. Ibanez copy Gibson filed suit against Hoshino.

The History of Hamer, Part Four

But, by the time Kiss began performing shows, in support of their 1st release, Ace was primarily using a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe through a watt Marshall, as he mentioned in the quote above. That first Les Paul was a beautiful Gibson Les Paul Deluxe in a Tobacco Sunburst finish, which Ace used almost exclusively with a couple of other guitars , right up until September of As with any Les Paul Deluxe of the period, this particular guitar would have originally had mini-Humbucker pickups and creme plastics.

By the time Ace acquired it from Manny’s Music, in late , it already had it’s mini-Humbuckers swapped out for a set of full sized Humbuckers. This was a very common practise of guitars players in the early s, who wanted their guitars to look and sound like those of their heros, from the UK, who were typically using the much revered Les Pauls.

Jul 09,  · So recently I got very lucky and bought 2 NOS Dimarzio pickups a SDS-1 and a Super Distortion. The seller said they where from the 80’s and are about the same age.

About Pickups Choosing the right pickups for your guitar, is an often overlooked part of the whole tone search. We spend most of our budget on expensive pedals but a tone starts with the guitar and its pickups. Simply put, a single coil pickup consists of a given length of coil, six magnet poles and mounting plates. The tone characteristics of a pickup is a combination of different types of ALNICO magnets and coil, number of wounds and the technique used during the winding process.

Less turns of the coil creates a cleaner, more transparent tone with less output. The more turns, the more output with more mid range and less highs. When you pick a string, the vibration resonates between the wood body and neck and the strings. The vibration is picked up by the pickup magnets that pushes the magnetic field through a stationary coil.

The signal is induced and in turn amplified. The type of wood, lacquer, frets, string gauge, pick etc will colour the resonance. Like pedals, the pickups in your guitar are a part of your tone but perhaps more importantly, they pick up and transfer all the nuances in your playing. You could very well just use whatever pickups you want or even make a pickup yourself but choosing a model that fits and enhances the timbre of your guitar, the tone of your amp and your technique, is important to get the tones you want.

Choosing the right pickups Obviously, which pickups you should choose depends on your taste and purpose of use.

Guitar Player Magazine Backissues

This resulted in the so-called lawsuit period. During this period, Ibanez produced guitars under the Mann name to avoid authorities in the United States and Canada. The company has produced its own guitar designs ever since.

Extraordinary musician Richie Kotzen plays and talks about his Twang King and The Chopper T pickups, his signature Fender Telecaster, his Fender Japan Stratocaster, and custom DiMarzio Pickguard.

It was a brief, intense time for them and a long time ago in their lives. There was only one man there in the first chapter from beginning to end and he is deceased Physical evidence does tend to tie things together in a logical order. I’ve been a fan of SD Curlees since I was kid looking at their ads in ’70s Guitar Player magazines, I’ve spoken with everyone around to speak with, and I own most of the original tooling, fixtures and templates. So now – with all of that cross referenced – here is how it falls together.

Thanks so much for your interest!

Mar 18,  · The “Dimarzio Pickups” stamp on the brass plate started off pretty big, but decreased in size by Slug coil poles are also slightly beveled around the edges-they got more flush and flat @ serial, Jul 14,

Sitemap Technical This is a technical guide to these guitars, both to assist in setup, and also to explain the hows and whys of how the Paul Dean guitars work. Seems Odyssey dating works like this I know that Paul had 50 commissioned, but what makes it tricky is the Odyssey site seems to show mostly guitars from the period so I dunno about Odyssey production from onward – maybe the Paul Deans were the only guitars made that year they were also making Aoyette drums, or at least sharing a factory with them.

So it’s safe to say that ALL Odyssey guitars are likely model year guitars. Which would make sense since Paul commissioned them all at the same time. More recently another viewer contacted me with another Odyssey with a serial number over 50 – having me wonder 2 things on these guitars – if there were actually more than 50, if Odyssey pulled a Charvel like Charvel did with EVH’s Bumblebee and made a few out of the commissioned for sale?
