No, nothing thats made in america works anywhere else, its a commercial sacm so that people support their own country´s economy
The first guitar was made bygeatanno vinacci in Naples Italy
It could be a number of things, but fluorescent lighting in or near the room will cause what's called a "60Hz hum." If this is the case you could try to reverse the polarity on the 'Mains Plug'. i.e the AC mains leading to the step down transformer. Alternatively confirm the same by switching off circuits (Tubelights, television etc) one at a time, to see if this hum stops. Particularly if the hum stops when you switch of the television - have the TV repaired fopr faulty filter capacitor. If the hum is caused by earthing or neighbouring tubelights check the shield of the amplifier.The shield is supposed to be grounded to effectively eliminate the electric fields surrounding the same. If it's more like a buzzing sound, there may be a loose connection in either jack (the guitar's or the amp's) or the patch cable itself; there might be a poor solder somewhere; or you might just be picking up interference from a nearby electronic device. If it's really noticeable, you might consider taking the amplifier to a local repair shop and having them take a look at it. It could also be a poor ground, which will require re-wiring of the outlet or possibly the entire electrical system in that area of the building. Try plugging the amp into different outlets and see if the hum subsides; if it doesn't, it's likely an issue with the amp or the guitar themselves.
The energy transformation takes place at the pick-ups of a guitar, and the transformation is sound (pressure) to electric.
If you are referring to an acoustic guitar, however, the transformation could be better described as Kinetic and Potential energy (the strumming motion) into sound (pressure.
I really hope I am misunderstanding your' answer but if you are saying that sound waves affect the pickups then you are not correct.
The initial energy source are your fingers picking a string. You put potential energy in the string at this point. Now the strings take over and, with the energy you gave them, affect the magnetic field that the pickups are generating with their back and forth movement. The next part is really long winded so I'll give you the simple conclusion. Now you have a signal going to the amp. The amp controls the power going to the speakers with this signal.

that depends on an infinite number of factors, including the experience , and wealth of the owner, the type of music played etc etc, but I have been following Carlos 249s on the web for over 2 years now , and can say this: I have seen them on sale for $56 (goodwill auction) to $450. (a museum's offer on line)
Typical is $100-125. They may have retailed originally for about $100 in the 80s.
I saw one for sale in a local pawn shop for $100, went on line, read the reviews, and bought it. If you ask me ,or other life long performers, how it sounds , opinions vary. Those, when asked, who look first to the headstock to determine brand, are prejudiced, but those who simply listen, (including me), might say that my 249 sounds better than my (made in Columbus GA) McCormick, which in turn sounds better than my Martin D-18! Which is what my wife judged blindfolded
I asked her to do this because i thought that i might be prejudiced by all the hype I had read in the reviews. Things such as "I play my martin at church because it has a pick up but at home my Carlos cause it sounds as good."-or
"I refused an $800 dollar offer at a music store , because it would take me more than $1200 to replace it." I sold my first Carlos at cost to a girl who wanted to play in her church and in her ministries, but thought she couldn't afford a good guitar, , I proved her wrong. Now I have bought another which I shall keep.
I have had a set up done, and as is advised in some reviews, changed the cheap tuners for Grover's. If you are a person of modest means and love to play i would hang on to this gem. Although I "only" own a D-18, I have played D-28 herringbones and D-35s from time to time, and they dont sound any better' either. The Carlos 249 is an exact (I measured and calipered )copy of a Martin dreadnought, size wise within the limitations of the wood tools used. I believe it is the brass saddle and nut, however, that givee this model such a powerful melodious sound.

It's where the frets have actually been shaved down so instead of being normal looking and straight, they're inverted. Like if a normal guitar fret is flat or a little convex, scalloped frets are concave.
you really can't because theres no way to hold them in the bridge properly unless you have a Floyd rose. They won't get picked up on the amp though as theres nothing magnetic for the pickups to produce.

60 or 70% what you paid for it , only old fenders go up in value or limited edition. Because it's not either by what you told us honestly people look at it as another guitar. Now if you hold onto it for 30 or 40 years than you'll get some return investment.
the only really valuable guitars are iconic ones
ones where they spelled stuff wrong
very limited edition
and totally unplayed guitars with original cases that would be like jumping in a time machine to get say a 1950 fender broadcaster or whatever
if the guitar is played so what honestly , enjoy it. It's a Fender and people love Fender guitars who I deal with on a regular bases.
Generally, it's an accoustic guitar which also has electronics built into it so that it can be plugged into an amp if you want to. But you don't *need* to, it's a fully-functional accoustic guitar if you don't.
I have a Tanglewood TW170-AS-CE and its beautiful would cost around £269 (bp) so its way in your price range. Ive recently bought a Simon & patric for £599 it sounded good in the shop but when i got it home and compared it it was nowhere near as good as the tanglewood so i sold it after just buying it.
or you can buy Canadian,a Norman or seagull are great guitars for the money
Epiphone Ace Frehely Guitars were released in 2 colors. A Black version and a Sunburst version. The Black version was not as popular but generally sells for little more due to rarity. In good to very good condition they sell for around 400.00 to 500.00. If you have a Mint Black around 600.00 + Mint Sunburst 550.00 +. If you have a case this adds 25.00 to 100.00 dollars depending on the case manufacturer. Selling price is what you personally can feel good about getting for the Guitar. Hope this helps !
"the loudness of a fender stratocaster?" is neither a question or a sentence. WHAT ABOUT the loudness ????? DERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
Who invented thd Electric Transit? What year was the Electric Transit invented?
If your talking about the shape shifting robots, they were created on cybertron by the quintessons. ^Only in the 1980s G1 cartoon continuity. In more or less all other universes in the transformers multiverse, they were created by the god Primus.
Yes it can. When you plug in a semi hollow guitar, what you get is an electrified semi hollow sound. I set my tone about half way, and the treble at slightly less using only the forward [bass] pickup. They sound quite nice even unplugged.
it's a beginner guitar brand , as long as you think it sounds nice put some new strings on it every other month and keep it in tune , I mean it's 90% the player 10% the guitar that makes it good.
one tip , switch the guitar tuners to a brand such as Grover , Sperzel , Schaller or Gotoh. Good guitar tuners are essential to serious musicians. Try to replace the hardware (parts) with bone if you can as well it's a 10$ (at most) investment but you'll be steps closer to a professional guitar.
On a modern electronic keyboard (Piano Keyboard), there most likely will be plethora of voices to chose from, Guitar to Oboe.
But YES, you can use guitar effects with a keyboard. They should be between keyboard and amplifier.
The value will be between 600-2,500 dollars depending on if you have a standard model,or a deluxe model(checkered wood,sling swivels,and bolt peep sight).The more original finish on your Winchester will bring the value up also.
Yes, go to a music store and buy a pack of strings. If it's an acoustic, take the pegs on the bridge out and replace the string, otherwise, just unwind the string from the top and push it through the body.
~ The placement of pickups generate different sounds. The pickup closest to the neck (fretboard) will give you a deeper, bass sound. The pickup closest to the Bridge will give you a brighter, more treble of a sound. Electric Guitars have one to 3 pickups depending on the manufactures design and the tone they are trying to produce.
Pickups also vary in sound depending on the construction of the pickup. The composite and size of the wire, along with the amount of turns (The full number of wraps around) produce a lighter or heavier sound. The potentiometers (volume and tone pots) used also have a tone quality to the over-all sound the pickup produces.
~ Pickup Switch
Switch set to Treble, uses the pickup closest to the Bridge. While the switch set to Rhythm, uses the pickup closest to the neck. The switch should follow the direction of the placement of the pickups. Whether it's a 2 or 3 pickup guitar, the switch works from neck to bridge, controlling one or more of the pickups.
2 Pickup guitar
~ A Two pickup guitar will have a 3-way switch. The Rhythm position, up or towards the neck position, controls only the neck pickup. Moving the switch to the next position, middle, controls both the neck and bridge pickups. Moving the switch to the Treble position, down or towards the bridge, controls only the bridge pickup.
3 Pickup guitar
~ A Three pickup guitar should use a 5-way switch which works similar to the 3-way switch, except it allows the control of the middle pickup. The switch has 5 positions. Starting at the Bridge pickup, is position 1, (switch towards the bridge) the bridge pickup is the only pickup on , and working the neck pickup, is position 5, (switch is towards the neck) the neck pickup is the only one on. The 3rd position (switch is in the middle position) is working the middle pickup only, as it would be the only one on. Switch positions 2 an 4 work both pickups to either side. Position 2 works both the bridge and middle pickup, while position 4 works both the middle and neck pickup.
