Cappuccino Help: What makes a guitar make its sound? (62* d) RE: Help: What makes a guitar make its sound? 04 Jun 02

Now, that's an interesting point from Steve - "as I begin to understand what the guitar wants..."

I have only ever owned one decent guitar in my life, my now-gone Precision bass, and my remaining acoustics and electric/acoustic are impossibly cheap by the standards you guys are talking. I have never even touched a Martin or a Gibson.

But I dearly love the mongrel jumbo (of unknown provenance and parentage) that I found in a London second-hand shop eight years ago for forty pounds. Tatty, dirty, rusty, and in awful condition. A lot of love and respect, and a lot of use, has produced a delightful sound from it.

And now Steve's made me look at my guitars again and ask: 'what do you all expect from me, to bring out your potential?'

Oh, Steve, you've got me talking to the bloody things, now...
