Rickenbacker Guitar Models / Re: John Entwistle

The 4005 is cherished by Rickenbacker players and collectors and is hard to find these days. I hope that RIC will have a 4005 reissue or signature model some day but I do not expect that it would be anytime soon.

ADNutt73: I suspect that this instrument may be a copy as I have not see any Rickenbackers with a serial on the back of the headstock or on a sticker. Phots would certainly help one identify a copy or "faker" to whcih they are often referred.

Bjorn: What do you think of the lacquered fretboard of your Strat 57 RI? Also does this model use the 57/62 pickups?

Scotty, I love the finish of your Tele. Do I see two sets of switches there? Perhaps it is just the flash in the photo.

Soundcheck / Re: Playing lead guitar on a Model 330

For a primer on how to use guitars effectively on stage, take a look at the Premonition DVD. John Fogerty simply got better over the years. This DVD should be in every guitar players library. It will not dissapoint. Speaking of the 330, he does a great job with a model 1997 and it is a beautiful guitar as well.

Soundcheck / Re: "The jangle sound"

Sloopdawg: As you have found, there are many ways to get the jangle sound. Many pedals have patches, some downloadable, the allow for this sound.

It is true, that with the right effect, the sustain and jangle is easily attainable using a six string as well.

As yet, however, I have not found an effect that successfully models a 12 string sound.

Rickenbacker Bass Models / Re: My Rickenbacker 4001

The early 1970s Rickenbacker 4001 models are becoming more collectible every day and based on the tone in your clip and your photo it is for a good reason, Bjorn.

In a fair number of cases there are still 60s features on a number of basses manufactured in 1970 and 1970. The fireglo finish is also stunning on these models.

Happy New year, Bjorn and all those who frequent here. I look forward to more discussions in the Rickbeat Guitar Forum about our love of music, instruments and amplifiers in 2008.

This book seems to have sold out. The website indicates that there are no copies presently available. I hope there will be another printing.

Each make of amplifer has something to offer. This is a bit like asking what is my favourite Beatles' song. There are just so many different choices it is hard to decide.

I love the Vox with the alnico speakers, however, if forced to choose, I would go with Fender as it has figured so centrally in so many styles of music since the advent of the electric guitar and bass.

Bjorn: That recording of Silly Love Songs is very well played. The tone of the 4001 is really unequaled by other basses. I see another 4001 in your future.  ;D

Bass & Guitar Strings / Re: New strings - how often?
« on: December 23, 2007, 11:48:24 AM »
For my six stringed instruments I have moved to using D'Addario 0.10s most of the time. I find that theses strings are very well made, economical and readily available.

The gauges that I have settled on, because of my love of bending strings and my old hands is 10, 12, 16, 26, 36, 46. This allows me to bend but still have enough string to get a decent sound.

I use the Rickenbacker 12 string set for my 12 string.

Thanks for your comments, Bjorn and Chris. I am curious as to what string company Curtmangen Strings used to work for.

Wow, now that is an amplifier. I remember that these looked so futuristic when they first appeared on the scene. How times have changed, moving back toward more compact models.

Bjorn: The books of which you speak are still available but they are not as complete as the one I have mentioned.
