Judgestone replied to Mick Jones's discussion Schertler dyn-g pickup
"I used the California Lace for years before I finally put in an undersaddle one.  Worked great for me and I have since given it to a guy who plays out all the time and he uses it still every gig for the same reason as he doesn't want…"

Judgestone replied to Rick's discussion What kind of guitar is this one?
"Older J-200.  I would say it could possibly be an Natural Epi EJ-200 with the pick guard changed out.  I have an both the regular EJ-200 with the original pick guard and an "Artist" model that is stripped down and it's…"

Judgestone replied to Scott LaBonte's discussion New Guitar Question...
"I believe all you can buy now is the cutaway model unless you happen to find someone with an older non cutaway model and willing to give it up.  Most of us who have them don't want to let them go."

Judgestone replied to Scott LaBonte's discussion New Guitar Question...
"You might also want to look into the new Epi Dove or Hummingbird Pro series.  I have one of their original Hummingbirds without the electronics and love it.  I just haven't gotten around to putting a preamp or pickup in it but it…"

Judgestone replied to Scott LaBonte's discussion New Guitar Question...
"I got to throw in the Epihone EJ200.  They do make a cutaway with a pickup and preamp already installed in that range.  I just got the non cutaway without a pickup and then eventually put in a Martin ThinLine Undersaddle Pickup and Martin…"

Judgestone replied to Gil's discussion Fishman Rare earth single coil pickup in Martin HD28VR
"I don't find it smaller than others and I either use one of the plastic dunlop strap locks, or just screw the button on over my strap and just leave the strap on it.  Also for $40 the Behringer DI works great.  Blends, EQs, Ground…"

Judgestone replied to Gil's discussion Fishman Rare earth single coil pickup in Martin HD28VR
"Phil, the ThinLine and Active Jack I refer to in my post is actually if I am not mistaken made by Fishman and basically the same pickup, just has a Martin name on it.  It is a fraction of the price of the Fishman and I couldn't believe how…"

Judgestone replied to Gil's discussion Fishman Rare earth single coil pickup in Martin HD28VR
"My brother-in-law bought me one of the very reasonably priced Martin Thinline undersaddle pickups for my EJ-200 last Christmas and I had it professionally installed and it worked and sounded great for a cheap pickup "but" even running it…"

Judgestone replied to michael medex's discussion 1st guitar n getting there with it
"I agree with Fern.  I have guitars that cost thousands of dollars.  Acoustic and electric, but honestly they are no more than glorified wall displays. Yes I play them but they don't played as often as I wish or they should.…"

Judgestone replied to michael medex's discussion why do picks turn in your hand as you play?
"I have been using the Dunlop Jazz II/III red and black picks along with the Tortex Jazz Green/Purple picks for years and a normal pick feels funny to me; but no matter which ones I use, I always the normal pick portion inwards towards my hands.…"

Judgestone replied to michael medex's discussion 12 string tips and tricks?
"I play and leave my 12 string Open G 95% of the time.  Love it that way."

Judgestone replied to Mike Bishop's discussion Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III Acoustic Feature
"I have found that I get a really fine nice but not true acoustic sound out of a Tele (Even Squire Ones) and a Behringer ADi21 DI/Modeler Box, and it also doubles as a great EQ/DI for an acoustic guitar and it would be cheaper than a LP even an…"

Judgestone replied to Earl Gard's discussion Amplifier Noise
"I agree on the "grounding" issue along with capacitors.  On an electric amp I have, it started doing basically the same thing and got to the point it sounded like the speaker was blown.  I changed out the speaker and even did the…"

Judgestone replied to Lee Drake's discussion myths about open tunings
"I have 10 acoustic guitars ranging in price from $150 to $1000 and I have most of them tuned to 1/2 step down standard type tuning or Open G and I have never had a problem with any of them.  I hardly tune to standard tuning now other than 1/2…"

Judgestone replied to Al Spohn's discussion Alvarez AP710SB vs... Martin O28 VS, Gibson Robert Johnson, etc.
"Don't let the price fool you.  I have two under $250 acoustics (Epi SJ200, and Epi SJ200-Artist) that I have install pickup in and I play them more than any guitars I have. Both sound fantastic unplugged but I just installed the pickups…"
