Guitar

Well all of you welcome to my little group, heres our first topic, Should there be an instructible about how to create an amplifier? I think so because they are always expensive to buy, to build one though would be fun as well as useful, now you tell me and everyone else your opinion.

headphones for a guitar?

About five minutes ago one of my friends brother told me my friend was annoying him by playing his electric guitar at 7:30PM as loud as he can so it got me to thinking, to make headphones that work on a guitar it couldn't be as simple a swapping the jack right? if i made the cassete player amp instructable and just plugged normal headphones into that, the headphones would work so only the guitar player could hear it right? my music teacher told me that plugging headphones into an amp was a bad idea for some reason so im just using that to try and make headphones for an amp another way

Phone guitar

Phone apps are creeping more into the musical space. Famous musicians have been seen using cell phones with apps to play in their shows. Steffest has combined multiple phones into a guitar and can be seen here playing the results. Now I want to see him add an iPad for the guitar body and make the entire thing touchscreen. via Make

Guitar recycling

My well-meaning parents bought me a half-size acoustic guitar as I was adding to my collection. Bad news is, it's useless. It not only has no adjustable truss rod but, as far as I can tell, no neck reinforcement whatsoever, so it's slowly turning itself into a slide guitar. The intonation is so far out that, despite all the useful guides, I despair of bringing it anywhere near something playable, even if I knew what key it was intended to be tuned to (it feels close at a G or an A, but it's still so far out it's crazy). Even if I could fix all of the above, the keys are so loose that three seconds of playing loosens the string anyway. Help! What can I use an unplayable guitar for? :D Should I strip it for parts? Should I turn that lovely sound box into a drum? Turn it into a table? I need inspiration! I'm the kinda gal whose favourite guitar was rescued from a sidewalk, so I don't want it to die; but despite its shape, it's not a guitar. :(

Guitar Pedal Prototypes

Don't get me wrong, I love acoustic guitars... But I love a good crazily distorted guitar that almost sounds like a synth. Rage against the machine's guitarist Tom Morello epitomizes that wild sound for me. Most good bands have an instantly recognizable sound and one of the ways a guitarist can distinguish zer self is to use a unique set of pedals. Now you could go buy a set and find just the right setup for your taste... or you can build your own. Best part is, there's no soldering involved:Bevis Boardvia:Make

LED Guitar Pickups???

Hey guys,I'm interested in putting LED lights in my guitars pickups. I've seen a few people do this on the net and gives a brilliant effect.I know to put this all together on the guitar, the only problem i have is making a circuit for the LED's. I know there are instructables on how to wire LED's but none show any circuit with a switch.I have all the equipment needed for this, eg. LED's, resisitor, 9V battery, toggle switch, wire etc.So basically i'm asking whether someone would be kind enough to show me how to wire 2 series circuits which both consist of 4 LED's which connect back to a switch and a standard 9V battery connector.And if possible, close up pictures would be very helpful.For an idea of what i am on about here is a video of someone who has already done it, but i didn't find his instructions helpful at all.Any help would be much appreciated.Thanks Dan

A good cheap bass guitar?

I play guitar, and (try to) play ukulele. I have wanted to play bass for a while now, and I now have a guitar center giftcard. I think I may get a squier j bass, but im not sure. What brand is good, but cheap? It cannot be over 200 dollars. New or used is ok. I just want to know what bass is good to learn on and is cheap. Below is a metallic red Squier j bass.

Nickname for my bass guitar

I have decided to name my bass guitar (like you hear all the famous musicians do), and i want some help brainstorming. Details about my bass: Really low action, Jay Turser imitation of a Music Man Stingray, 4 string, dark blue to the point of almost being black, wide neck, just generally awesome. Oh, and anyone else have a name for their instrument?

Subcontrabass Guitar - to build or not to build?

Hey all you musicians, and especially guitar players! I am currently planning the next version of my Prism Laser Guitar (vote for me if you like it!) and I need some opinions.The next version will hopefully sound very much like a real guitar, not a synthesizer. It will also be capable of playing chords among other tricks the first version couldn't do. However, due to physical and monetary restraints, it will have to be a 4-string bass guitar of some sort. That's fine with me - I love bass!So here's the idea: Unhindered by the physical limitations of a vibrating string, I am free to tune the bass as low as I want. I'm thinking of giving it a C#, F#, B, E tuning, with a bottom note of 17.5Hz. That's lower than pretty much any bass you can get, opening up a whole playground of super bass notes to drive neighbours up the wall. ;)Is that something people would be interested in? Or should I stick to a standard bass tuning range?

Bass Guitar shape suggestions

Hello there I am planing on making a bass guitar, it is going to be fret-less, most likely have 5-strings, and will probably have a partially hollow body for effect :). but anyway, I am wondering if anyone has a good body shape for it. to keep the results to somewhat my liking, I want you to know that I play a lot of jazz and the like, not any heavy metal, so before you come here and tell me to make it look like a warlock, that will most defiantly not happen ( not to down anyone who likes that kind of thing, its just not me) (note: The picture is not one of the ideas that I came up with, I found it on-line for an example photo. though, i do like it)

Lacquer or Varnish to finish a guitar?

Hi, I've just had an artist do some work on one of my acoustic guitars. Its done straight onto the sanded bare wood using sharpie, all I have to do is give it a finish to stop the design getting damaged and to give it a glossy shine. A lot of people recommend Lacquer but what type should I use? Nitrocellulose? Poly? Others say Varnish but I've heard it can become tarnished from sweat and heat. This coat needs to stay on indefinitely as I cant sand it down again to apply a new coat without removing the art. Please help!
