  1. My new album is out today. Really proud of it. 70's glamrock beats, old Eko Tiger organ sounds, spring reverby danelectro guitars, lofi/midfi, bumpy drums, melodies, noise, fuzz, dirt ... I think there's some really good songs on it. I wouldn't mind if you set apart some minutes and give it a listen ;-) And if you really want to possess it, it's available as download/CD/black vinyl and deluxe edition in colored vinyl plus a 7"inch split-single with surfband "Juleah". Have a nice day you nice people! http://theshea.bandcamp.com/album/disappear
  2. i like and use the superfuzz (the orange one) a lot. sounds very good and if it breaks, who cares, i'll buy a new one for the little money it costs.
  3. well, i joined this forum in the year 2002 and it was ace. than the big bang came and destroyed it all ... in fact i think it cancelled my over 10.000 posts and nulled them 🙂 it was like a wonderland before with lots of good people, fun and expert info. i was mainly in the FX section and there was a great community of people, yes, THAT does exist on the internet. now i don't know ... i am just here to promote some of my music lately hahahah, so please feel free to check out my music in the sig and the forum. as i do, let's all give this forum another chance!
  4. i LOOOOVE this guitar! it gives me an instant 60's sound. i had the "normal" 59 before with the rosewood bridge, while it had the same sound, it was not ideal for intonating. the jimmy page is perfect! a bit of spring reverb, some cheap amp, fuzzed up and ready to rumble! ok, watch & hear it for yourself in my latest video – those chord stabs are the danelectro and the solo too! if you want more, you can listen to my record (came out 1 year ago) here: https://theshea.bandcamp.com/ it's full of danelectro into fender champion 600 amp (amp overdriven!), bit of slapback or spring reverb – done! anyone else mad for danelectro 59 jimmy page?! i bought it thinking i would only play it in it's famous middle pickup position, i was wrong! for that 60's sound i use it in the bridge position!
  5. i do indeed love songs with great outros, like "layla" or the verve's "come on". so, i did it myself! here's my new song and video (sorry for the shamless self-promo!). it's short, intro-verse-chorus-verse-chorus-outroooo! i think i put the right emotion into the outro, i do love it – even though some vocal ain't perfectly in tune. feedback welcome! thanks in advance for listening:
  6. thanks for the tip, but since i am in europe with the weak euro/strong dollar/taxes its not convenient anymore to look on US ebay. but i will keep an eye open for such a bridge model. thanks again.
  7. that one looks great! but way to expensive ... but the concept is ace.
  8. a newier pic of myself with the guitar - it will be one of my next covers:
  9. bieke: you're quiete a detective! the first pic in post #8 was the one the seller send to me after i tried the guitar in the shop in Berlin and wanted some pictures to look at when i was home again (i later ordered the guitar and had it send to me, i bought it on vacancy in Berlin last summer). the second pic in post #8 with the skull decal, well, that's the one i made and put on the headstock, which before was nameless/empty :-) the skull and the word "Uebel" are my design. the scratchplate missing i don't mind as i read up on the net, as you say, they are deterioring and the rebuild/clone ones i don't wanna buy. yeah, the string spacing on that last pic above is really strange and i have seen that before. and it seem to be the same bridge as mine has. from what i know Gottfried Uebel guitars where also sold under the brands "Musima" and "Migma". Mine had no brand an no plate, nothing, but it's a real Gottfried Uebel guitar for shure. i want to install a tremolo arm just for optical sakes. i tried the tremolo spring with the palm of my hand and the guitar went out of tune pretty soon.
  10. aah, i forget: you can already hear the guitar in action as-it-is on my new song "in all our glory" here: https://theshea.bandcamp.com/track/in-all-our-glory it's the one right in the intro with lotsa spring reverb. i think it has a wonderfully wooden tone to it.
  11. hey bieke! as always - you are the guru! all right what you say. that's what i discovered from searching the internet and from the nice people on http://www.euroguitars.co.uk. it's a beautiful guitar, i love the sound but due to the bridge wrong string spacings it has a bit of tuning problems. in fact it has 4 different sound: one "modern" one with more gain from the bridge pickup, one bluesy sound from the neck pickup, than a very thin sound with pickups out of phase (sounds just like the brigde pickup on a danelectro 59) and a muffled very "brown" sound with almost no treble - all within the turn of one knob. concerning the bridge: i can't move the bridge backwards as the intonation would suffer. and the holes are rather wrong for the string spacing. @ WRGKMC: thanks for the suggestions. those tune-o-matic bridges do look very nice. i guess because of the delicate string spacings i am better adviced taking the guitar to a luthier.
  12. hi, i purchased an old (around 1970) guitar build by luthier Gottfried Uebl from GDR. it's a fantastic guitar, but i need a new bridge as the one installed ain't the original one and it ain't working properly. i also need a new nut as the old one is not in best shape. maybe some new tuners as well ;-) could you please suggest what would fit my old guitar. i need something to retain it's acoustic/electric sound characteristics as it is a hollow guitar. the bridge is a floating one, a jazz type one.
