I see. Let me know what you decide I'll probably be in town again soon either way

Me too.

I don't really try to play like him, but I do tend to copy some of my favorite bits of his playing. Absolutely love that "backwards bend" (or whatever you call it) that he did.

And yeah, the sound is one thing - I have played the old Marshall unattenuated a few times, and it's just... it makes everything feel more difficult to play somehow.

Oh I know. I know he had a few Gibsons (can think of at least four) and he used Fender amps occasionally.



I realize it's not the best recording, but chances are, if you blindfolded me and asked me if that was his usual setup with the Marshalls... I'd say yes.

Don't forget, The Experience had an endorsement deal with Sunn (?) amps for a while, which he apparently kept blowing up. I can't say I've ever seen any live footage of him using those amps, I think there may be a tv show? There really isn't a great deal of Hendrix footage available it seems

Really poor video editing and I have no idea what happened to the audio, but he's at least using some of the sunn cabinets (left of the Marshalls). You can see Noel is using a full sunn setup there.

I have a full recording + interviews of this show, and they do talk about the amps blowing up.

In fariness, Hendrix complained of 'playing on nothing but ashes' at the Miami pop gig too, where I think they had rented Super Leads, so maybe he just blew up all his live gear. Remember those 4X12's had 4x 25w speakers in them, so they were right on the limit of what they could handle before the amp was pushed into distortion. Take a second to think about that!

Also I recall Noel liked the Sunn amps as they stayed cleaner, so not a surprise he was using the full setup. I know toward the end of the endorsement deal Hendrix was using the Sunn cabs with Marshall heads, before they gave up and returned all the equipment.

Jaicen or musecasters, I need some help with the neck P90 in my LP. I can't screw it down, basically. The springs and/ or screw would move
a couple days after I adjust my pickup height. I think the problem is the loose bushing. Sometimes the screw would suck the whole bushing up (?) What can I do about this? Thank you for your time.

Strange. Looked like the same setup he's using in the video above (sound city head and a couple of marshalls, including a tremolo head of some sort)

That's true, but I'd imagine he used two cabinets with a single 100 watt.

Have you heard the royal albert hall recording from 1969? There's a video too, but they've taken it off youtube. The sound is really horrible in that one... you can tell he's a bit frustrated by what happens at the end.

If I were you... probably not.

I think the guitar and maybe one or two of the pedals could work for that kind of sound anyway.

I'd still prefer a normal right handed strat. Does playing a right handed guitar left handed like Hendrix did really have much of an effect on the sound? I know there's pole piece height on the pickups and all that, but otherwise, I can't think of anything that would make a massive difference
I didnt think it was THAT bad! I think they did a pretty decent job in the video, but it all seems like typical " well these are the closest we can get to modern pedals that Jimi used, so here it is" Fuzz face and Vox wah are kind of must haves, and any old Octaving fuzz could be great for the octavix slot.

but I know what you mean with the right handed strat thing, I don't particularly think that matters. However, it's a jimi edition strat and its within budget - And while I DONT think all strats sound the same, they're all pretty similar, tone wise.

If you check the serial, the neck is from a 2007 deluxe strat.

But you can buy this if you want

I don't think they're worth that much, but I wouldn't know. I can't remember the last time one has gone up for sale.

Nah, but I meant if you're someone like Jaicen, you'd probably watch about a minute and have to turn it off.

And I realize it's one of their "without busting the bank" videos, so fair enough. I do think they could have gone for a better amp though - probably something a bit cleaner that you can turn up for some overdrive tones. I don't think you want a lot of preamp gain in this case.

Never tried the Hendrix edition strats, but it's probably a good choice if it has lower output pickups.

I realize I'm not expert like them, but if you don't want it going anywhere (I don't think there's a reason to remove it anyway) use a small amount of water thin super glue. It should be just enough to keep it from coming back out.

Have you oiled your fretboard again? Be careful not to overdo it - I used to think it helped the wood from drying out/shrinking, but all it did was cause one of the frets to raise itself. It's pretty dry here most of the time, and I only do it twice a year at most.

I got about halfway in till Rabea started improvising then I had to turn it off.
They did a half passable job, but anyone who would actually want to sound like Hendrix could find a better setup cheaper, so, you know...

There's no reason not to glue those bushings really. I don't use them, I use long screws straight into the wood, and shim the pickups to the right height. I actually do think there's a tone difference to having the p90's fixed hard to the body. I know

yeah that

and I don't see much of a problem with the bushings, but I didn't realize they used springs. I would've just put a shim (whatever that rubber/foam material is) of some sort under the pickup, as I'd imagine it would be a bit wobbly with springs only.

Have you seen this?

It really is. I've been looking into one of these - seems like it might be a decent alternative to an attenuator, plus it has some other uses.

http://www.fryette.com/power-station...nce-amplifier/



I realize it's not in English, but that's the only good demo with a non-master 100 watt that I could find.

On a side note, I've not really liked the 1959SLP reissues, but that one sounds really nice.
