New Guitar

Postby twinreverb » Fri Oct 16, 2009 7:08 pm

Well here it goes I'm looking to pickup another guitar I have a
G&L Asat Classic in Natural Orange with a Maple Neck and
Natural Binding. Very sweet guitar and I'm looking at a few
different styles of guitar. Phantom Guitars Works Teardrop
in Surf Green three pickups and yesterday I talked to the
person who owns the guitar and there no rush in buying it.
Steinberger GR4 that I been watching on Ebay but they only
want Paypal so that's kind of hard for me because I don't use it.
Rickenbacker 330 in Mapleglow with High Gain Pickups at a local
Music Store. Why I say a 330 Rickenbacker is I took my Twin Reverb
over to my friends house and played his 330 in Fireglow thru the amp
and it sounded great you could hear every note that was played. I'm
saving each week so there is no rush and I would like to get some
thoughts from the members here on this. I would like to get the guitar
in the first half of next year 8-)

First off welcome to the forum!

I recently bought a Phantom 12 from PGW and they are very well made. I plan on having Jack build me a teardrop BJ/6 model when I have a few extra dollars to spend. I'm sure the seafoam green teardrop would serve you well but they are a pain to play unless standing (using a strap) due to the shape. Nothing wrong with owning a RIC 330, I've had several over the years and I would probably opt for that before the teardrop just because it's a little more versatile.

Twin Reverb...most things do sound great through them. ;)

I think I might lean towards something in the "Semi-hollow" vein. 335 or something?

Welcome aboard!!!

There is nothing so sweet as saving up for a new guitar. I am very jealous. Picking the right guitar is so hard. I LOVE the Twin Reverb, everything does sound great through them. I even heard a Greek band playing a bouzouki through it that sounded AWESOME. My advice is try out everything. Some guitars that look good to you will not "speak" to you. I have a couple of those. They are not bad guitars, they just don't suit my style of playing. Good Luck!!

Today I played a 330 & 360 Rickenbacker at a local music
store. Between the two guitars the 330 seem to have a better
neck now I don't think either guitar was setup. They have been
there for a while. Both guitars had High Gain Pickups and I asked
if they could be switched out for Toasters and the sales person said
yes. Also talked to another customer who has a 360 with Toasters
and he likes the sound that he gets and he plays thru a reissue
Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb. It looks like it will be a Rickenbacker
330 or 360 so what is the difference between the High Gains and
the Toasters :?: They also had a 381V69 in Jetglow that was way
out of my price range but it did have the Toasters. So when I go
back to the music I can compare the 330 & 360 to the 381V69 thru
a Twin Reve to listen to the sounds. Now on the Phantom Guitar
Works Teardrop I like the body style but I can't try the guitar to
far away I think its in Texas. I think having a G&L Asat Classic
and a Rickenbacker 330 or 360 thru a Reissue Fender 40th Anniversary
Twin Reverb would give me all the sounds that I would want 8-)

When I posted that last link, I was actually thinking of this one. Here this Blue Angel guy gives his opinions of the difference between a Toaster and a Hi-Gain.


http://www.rickenbacker.com/forum_view_ ... ounting%20?


I read this thread the other day and when you asked this question I went to find it. Anyway, this guy says he likes the Hi-Gains for 6 string guitars.

bassbob thanks for those links and after reading them I thought to
myself should I sell my G&L. One of the guys that I work with has
offered me $700.00 cash for the G&l. I do have to say that when I
started playing again it was 1988 and my first 6 string was a 360
Rickenbacker in Fireglow 8-) My all time favorite guitar was the
Rickenbacker that John Lennon played in AHDN. Then there was
the 350V63 and that version became my favorite and its still the
same today. I love that body style :!: :!: and I had a couple and
sold them but the 330 & 360 seem more natural for me to play.
Its been a little over two years that I haven't owned a Rickenbacker
and I kind of miss those guitars. As for the pickups I like the Toaster
more then the High Gains yet my friends 330 with the High Gains
sound great thru my Twin Reverb. Where I live the main guitars
are Fender, Gibson, and Ibanez with some PRS. You know its the
(IN) Guitars and its like I can't be seen with Rickenbacker or a
Vox Teardrop I guess some people just won't open there minds.

Well I didn't mean to make you want to sell your G&L. Of course, I'm the type of guy that would keep it AND go buy a new guitar. :)

I was looking at the Tom Anderson guitar site and I have to
ask does anyone here play any of his guitars :?: There is a
local guy who has one for sale he's asking $1799.00 and its
a the guitar was made in 1994. Is that to much money for a
15 year old guitar :?: Tom Anderson Hollow T Trans Blue Ash
with Maple Binding and matching Headstock 8-) I've only seen
pictures but I have to say if I had the money I would buy it. The
only thing right now is that its out of my price range. The guy
also has a 1988 Steinberger GM4S in Red and he asking $1850.00
whicjh seems a little high. Now it looks like it will be a 330 Rickenbacker
but the same music store has a couple of 6120 Hollow body Gretsch
guitars used for around $1600.00 :o

Clint Black uses Tom Anderson guitars. I'm sure they are great guitars but I have no idea what they are worth and what the long term value will be.

This past weekend I went back to one of our local music
stores. I took another look at the Rickenbackers they
had in stock a 330 in Mapleglow and two 630 one in
Fireglow and one in Mapleglow. They also had a couple
of used Gretsch 6120 in stock I played one and it played
real good. Now there is a third guitar that I was looking
at and its a Phantom Guitar Works Teardrop in Surf Green
from a private sale 8-) The Ricks and the Gretsch I can
play but the Teardrop is in another state so does anyone
here play Phantom Guitar Works Teardrop :?: How do
they play and would it be a good backup guitar vs the
Rickenbacker or Gretsch :)

IMHO the Phantom Guitar Works guitars have necks that play like a Gibson (wide, flat radius) only with a Fender scale length.
I would not hesitate owning one (in fact I plan on it) although since you added a Gretsch into the mix, a 6120 would be a bit more versatile than either the RIC or the Teardrop. Hard to beat that "Great Gretsch Tone"! ;)

I wanted to say it was a 360 Rickenbacker and I do like the Phantom Teardrop
which is in my price range. But I also like the look and the sound of the Gretsch.
Its that cool Gretscg Orange 8-)

Those Gretsch guitars are great looking and the ones I was looking at
are $1699.00 used. Now I don't know is that to much or is it a fair price
now with the Phantom I'm more than half way there another couple of
months and I'll have the money. A friend at work said have you ever
thought about an Epiphone Casino and I said no. What I'm also thinking
about is the style of music that I play 60's Paul Revere and the Raiders,
Byrds, Beau Brummels, Sam the Sham, DC5, Hollies, Monkees, Searchers,
Standells and Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart. Those are just a few and this
one I really like The Bobby Fuller Four. Does anyone here on this board
play any songs by those groups but not just the hits and go into the LP
tracks :?: I would like the guitar to cover a lot of those sounds :!:

I would like to throw a another guitar into this mix
a Epiphone Elitist Casino. So beside the others what
do you think about the Epiphone :?: Are they good
guitars compared to the 330 & 360 Rickenbacker
and 6120 Gretsch and the Phantom Teardrop.
Last weekend I went to a guitar show and they
had a used John Lennon Casino for $2000.00
which seems a little high.

I have two Epiphone Casinos , 1 in Natural like Lennon played on top of Abbey Road in Let it Be , and 1 in Vintage Sunburst like Lennon played in the '66 Tour. Both are Korean made and both sound fantastic. I wouldn't spend 2K on an Elitist. To me they're the same guitars , only one is $1500 more expensive ;)

taxman in what country are the Casino made in I know one is
Japan. With the Casino I don't know how it would sound thru
my twin reverb I do know how the 330 Rickenbacker sounds
and how my G&L sounds. I would like to here how the 6120
Gretsch sound and the Phantom Guitar Works Teardrop
sounds. I was also looking at a 350V63 Rickenbacker which
is my all time Fab Guitar now looking at the price for that
guitar I could get a reissue Vox Teardrop fron NCM for less
money and still have some money left. My G&L is from 2001
and its color is Clear Orange and very easy for me to play an
what I'm really looking for is a guitar the is different then the
G&L 8-)

Both of mine are Korean , I've played them through a Vox Valvetronix and a Fender Deluxe and the have great tones. The Gretsches are great for that Beatles/Rockabilly sound. I usually play through the Deluxe , but when I do " Open Mike " I take the Vox because it's lighter and easier to move around.

bassbob talked to a friend today and he told me he might sell one of his guitars
and I asked what he had. Well its a 1997 Parker Fly Classic and it only weights
4.5 lbs. So I said that I would go over to his house and take a look I'm not sure
but I think he want $ 1600.00 if that's the price that more then then the Phantom
Teardrop and more then the 330 Rickenbacker. That's about the same price for the
used 6120 Gretsch or a new 360 Rickenbacker :? Tomorrow I'll go back to the music
store and take another look at the Rickenbacker and Gretsch 8-)

Those Parkers aren't cheap. They do a pretty good job of switching between acoustic and electric tones. I have heard that the low budget models are not worth it and if you're going to get one, you should bite the bullet and get a good one. Personally, I'd be looking at Gretsch or Gibson hollowbodies, but that's just me.

What about a Sheraton? Those things look pretty sweet.

Since I'm flooded in and none of my neighbors could escape my wrath, I took my brown and my TL60 out in the back yard this morning, turned the volume all the way up and drowned out some TVs. No one complained and my one neighbor across the street actually came over and wanted to jam. He's a 70s/80s kinda guy and we ended up working out "Movin' on" by Missouri. A great song and a staple in these parts I guess. I was surprised I remembered some of the leads. :lol:

Guitars give me gas bad. I am lucky I'm a bass player and really have little desire for any basses other than the ones I already have, because if I played guitar all the time I'd be divorced and alone with a houseful of 'em. 8-)

One of the problems where I live is most of all the
music stores carry the same and even some of the
sales people will tell its a low end market. If I go
into our local GC and lets say I'm looking for a
Amp like a Vox Heritage Collecton AC30 i'm
told we don't stock them but we can order them
it is the same with guitars. The G&L that I have
I can't buy from a local store because no one sells
them but if I want to drive to Kingston NY there
is one dealers that has them in stock. Some one said
that I should look at a Gibson they do have good guitars
and the only one I really like is the SG. Latter today I'm
going guitar hunting so don't be surprised if I come home
with another Amp or guitar.

I have a 76' SG. Very nice guitar and it feels very different in my hands compared to modern SGs.

Well, keep us posted and if you do buy you a guitar today, be sure to post pictures. :)

Went to Parkway Music today and took another look at the 330 & 360 Rickenbacker
also looked at the 6120 Gretsch. Nothing really jumped out at me I think the guitars
needed to be setup. The only thing that kinda said buy me was the (Top Hat) Supreme 16
and I have played thru it with my G&L. I do like the sound that I get out of that Amp so the
bottom line is this If I don't go with the guitar I will go with the (Top Hat) and there is one
other guitar that I looked at today its the new American Standard Fender Tele in Ash it has
a Rose Wood Neck but I like just the Maple Neck. They had some PRS in stock that's way to
much money for me now so the hunt still goes on.

twinreverb, if you like Gibson SG's, you should look at a SG Classic. They are 999 new, and quite a deal for a real Gibby. I bought mine in 2006. Musiciansfriend has them, and since they own GC, I think you can find them at Guitar Centers also. Great neck, killer p-90 tones, all around the best deal on a Gibson guitar out there. bOb

Rockinrobert yesterday I did go again to one local music store
and took another look at the 330 & 360 Rickenbacker. Then I
took a look at the Gretsch 6120 and the body seem kinda big.
Nothing that I looked at jumped out at me and said take me
home but before I left I did check out one Amp again it was
the (Top Hat) Supreme 16 and I have played my G&L thru it
and I liked the sounds that Iwas getting 8-) Here is what I
would like to do and I know this guitar is not for everyone.
Thru a private sale I can buy a Phantom Guitar Works Teardrop
in Surf Green just need a little more money and then go back
to the music store and buy the Top Hat, Then that would give
me two guitars and two amps a G&L Asat Classic and a Phantom
Guitar Works Teardrop and a Reissue Fender Twin Reverb and
a Top Hat 8-)

FYI I have PArkers for sale at half price off of list.

I have some awesome G&L's on the wall as well, again 50% off.

Tom Anderson guitars are baddass, but the wait is over a year for one unless you find it hanging on a dealer wall...
30hz is best.

Jorgedebass which Parker and G&L's do you have for sale :?:
My friend say's that he might sell his Rickenbacker 330 in
Fireglow and he's only had it for about one month. I'm also
looking on ebay right now because back in the early 90' my
wife was with me in a local music store and they had in stock
some Steinbergers GR4 in Blue and Red and my wife asked me do
you like the guitar and I said yes so she bought it for me. That's
one guitar that I would buy again in a heartbeat I just like them
and when I had my amp at that time was a reissue Fender Twin
Reverb. When I used the Humbucker and the Middle pickup I got a
great sound 8-) I know those guitars are not for everyone I just like
being different so if I don't get the Rickenbacker or the Phantom
Guitar Works Teardrop I'll go with the Steinberger GR4 if I have the
money.

Epidrake after thinking about the new guitar it comes down to two guitars
(1) 330 Rickenbacker that has High Gains that I played today at the music
store the guitar just came out of the box. My friend Matt who owns the store
showed me a set of Toaster for the 330 and said that they would switch out
the High Gains for the Toasters and the color is Mapleglo.
(2) A 350V63 from the Music Zoo they have in stock Fireglo, Jetglo, Mapleglo
and Midnight Blue. I do like the VP over the High Gains and with the 330 thru
my Twin Reverb I can get more of a Byrds type sound 8-)

Just give me the new Duesenberg 12 string and I will not bother anyone again.... Maybe

Dr Wog I've seen some adds for Duesenber guitars where are they made and I
don't know any local music stores that carry them. The new guitar is put off
til next year. I'm not going to limit myself just to Rickenbacker so I will be
looking at a lot of different guitars like Gretsch, Parker, Rickenbacker
G&L, Vox Teardrop, Phantom Guitar Works Teardrop, Epiphone Casino
Tom Anderson Tele Fender American Stardard Tele, Duesenberg, and
others. Right now I like two one is the new Fender American Standard
Tele and the other is a Tom Anderson Tele 8-) Both have a Swamp Ash
Body and I'm staying with my Reissue Twin Reverb :)

Hey guys I will have the money for another guitar within the first quartar of
2010. Last weekend I went over to my friends house he has five Parker Flys
and I played the 97 Fly Artist thru my Twin Reverb. The guitar sounded so
good and the best part its only 4.9 LBS 8-) At one of our local music stores
I played a brand new 330 Rickenbacker in Mapleglo and the neck felt like
a baseball bat real fat. The neck on my G&L just feels so much better yet
the neck on the Parker Artist is the best neck that I have ever played on a
guitar :D This collector friend has a Tom Anderson Tele that I would like to
try and around the same price as the the Parker. Another music store has
the new Fender American Standard Tele which I have played and it plays good
but I want something different. My price range is $ 1700.00 ;)

A lot of things have happen since my last post I sold my G&L Asat Classic
and my Reissue Fender 40th Anniversary Twin Reverb. I had to pay some
bill and now I have a new job. For a guitar I'm using one of my friend's
Parker Fly Artist from 1997 and for the Amp I don't have one. This past
Saturday I joined a band as there guitar player we play 60's music and
I'm using the Parker and the Bass player has a late 60's Vox Thomas
Organ Royal Guardsman Head and a 2X10 Cambridge Cab that I play
thru. Now that I have a job I'm saving to buy the guitar and I've looked
at a lot of different guitars. I'm on a list to get this Demo Guitar from
Peter Malinoski Art Guitars has anyone here ever played one :?:

Nice to hear from you again TR. Sorry to hear about having to sell your gear.
