If it sounds well and plays well, don't care too much about woods and "brand image". :) Have phun with your Sigma! :) Ci...

Greco - need help with identification

Hi, there is a Greco at ebay, and i am interested. Can someone (roughly) tell my the year, the model and a fair price? I have no further information, only the weight (4.3 kilos) is known.

....Dimarzios are a pain to install, as they have multiple wires.... Sorry, that is nonsense. Someone who IS able to install a new pickup will have no problems to solder the "2 additional wires" of a DiMarzio-4-wires-cable. Someone who hast problems doinng that, will surely not be able to install a...

I wouldn't worry too much about the quality of the pots in the Les Paul jnr, if you really feel the need to change them it's a cheap & easy fix. What matters is the construction quality of the guitar. Absolutely! Yes. In case you think the guitar sounds a little too muffled in your ears, you can ea...

Hello. I think Pickup choice is the most difficult thing. First, you have to know what sound you want and what PU could deliver that sound.

Hello Luis.

Thank you for your reply.
I do not speak spanish, so your article won't help me.

But if you post it, maybe others will find that article very helpful.
Bye bye

Hello burny123, many thanks for your kind reply. :) I thought the caps were not original. I guess they are better ones. At least they sound great and work fine. Good pots and caps are one of the strenght of my Burny Super Grade. I'd never change them! What price would you pay for my bridge VH-1 (in ...

Re: Burny Super Grade on its way - what upgrades?

.... What upgrades are recommended if any. I've read that stopbar, bridge, pots and nut should be replaced. Is this correct and if so what should i upgrade with? In general: don't change anything if you like the guitar as is. ;) In special: i have a late 80s/early90s Burny Super grade, and the pots...
