Love my Yammie FG700, but she took some loving right off the shelf to make
her right. Keep watching Dave’s videos and you’ll be off to a good start.
You’d have to spend a bit to catch up with her now.

I spent months looking for an acoustic guitar playing everything from cheep
Chinese to top of the range hand made. I just couldn’t find one I really
liked, then I was offered a 2nd hand Yamaha CSF100K steel strung limited
run of a 100 hand made all Koa parlour. This is one of the best guitars I
have ever owned and will never sell it, Before I bought this guitar I never
gave Yamaha a second look so don’t judge till you try, some times you just
land lucky.

Never used the chromes, I’m not a pro player, so a little bit more sustain
doesn’t mean all that much to me. I’m lucky to get the notes right, I’m not
good enough to sweat the small stuff yet. I still don’t get having a sharp
piece of steel in the way. Doesn’t that limit how you can play it? My bass
has two sets of pickups, if I put steel over them, I’d have to pluck the
neck to play it. While that can work for some things, I wouldn’t want to
have to do it all the time.

hate to say it Yamaha but look at many quality can vary even within the
same model off the shelf

I started with a Squire J. I have others, but after swapping out the
pickups, pots, and cap – and setting it up with help from Dave here, it’s
still my favorite! As long as it makes noise, right!

Hey Cobba This is what I did to my Tony Franklin Pbass as well as
converting to a “string thru body with the high mass bridge. As I mentioned
to you via email its made a difference to the tone – better…:) Happy Nude
Year Dave & everyone.

well. Happy New Year!

WTF? The pinhead has a string-through and top loads it? Please educate
everyone and explain why a string-through sounds much better. And thanks
for asking if I got what i wanted for Christmas. Santa sent me another
Music Man Stingray Classic. Now I have 4 in me arsenal….Oops did i say
arse? I hope that didn’t offend anybody. I wouldn’t want you to get flagged
for the New Year. Also: Happy New Year Boys and Girls—Cheers–Duke

that black bass looks like the one roger waters plays lol

Definitely, and in fact it sounds pretty good. I just don’t like that
nagging feeling that it’s a copy with a dodgy headstock shape, and square
neck heel that ensures I can’t fit another neck! Oh well – good for a
starter, one day I’ll get that Fender…

Hey, can I get you’re opinion on Schecter Basses? I was just wondering
weather they are particularly good. I’m interested the Model-t witch is one
of the more expensive models that I’ve looked at. Thanks. :)

Wouldn’t call him a pinhead, the strings he wanted to use probably don’t
work with the string through function. Some flatwounds just break when they
strung through the body, some don’t.

Im not big on the string through on a P bass. It screws with the tension on
a standard set of swing bass strings for me. More taut than I’d like. Wish
mine had the bridge through option too, those new bridges are wonderful.

as far as I remember, you can’t put flats through the body because the
wound might brake Dave Lovely P tho :)

Midnight upload, eh? I can’t stress enough how much I love your videos and
how helpful they are to me! I already am helping friends with their guitars
(Damn floyd roses) and want to do this on the side professionally in the
future.

I got a new amplifier, Orange Dark terror head and Mesa 412! :D So happy
with it I think a Marshall or Orange cab may have been a better choice but
I love it all the same gonna sell my old line 6 and invest into a PRS SE
Mikael signature guitar next! Happy new years Dave!
