    umm, late to the party i guess, but does anyone have good recommendations for studio quality guitar headphones? My practice time and teh neighbors' sleep time seem to coincide far too much :|

    i got a Roland Cube amp. so either need a 1/4" headphone wire or a normal headphone with a 1/8" to 1/4" converter, i guess. anyone have any inputs on this?

    cheers

    The converters are very commonly available, i remember I got it free with these phillips headphones I bought. Try them.

    A friend is coming through Air France (Economy). And i read the following about that airline:
    Some musical instruments are accepted in the cabin without prior agreement: violins, mandolins, banjos, etc. They must not measure more than 55cm/21.7 in. (L) x 35cm/13.8 in. (W) x 25cm/9.8 in. (H) Large or fragile instruments (cellos or double basses) must be booked a separate seat.

    But the guitar that I want to get through him weighs: 44.5 x 4 x 14.5 inches , 12lbs

    Would he be able to bring it in cabin without any issues?

    No.

    Tell him to get the guitar crated in wood (flight packing) and book it in oversized cargo. That's how I got mine from Malaysia, though it came in its flight case and that's how I got it at the end. The case took a bit of a beating but the guitar was fine inside.

    Talked to the airline. Said he can bring it. Now the only issue is of weight.

    Can anyone tell me if there is an issue if the total weight crosses the allowed limit by about 1kg?

    Sad part of guitars available in india are all china mass produced be it fender of yamaha
    some decent ones are Hofner - 6k , Fender cut away - 7k ..yes both china make

    pluto pinto GbnA all are crap

    Really good guitar you want get hohner HW300-G -- 9.5K landing price
    originally "made in Germany" .. they have guittars done by skilled people in Indonesia or US

    ^^ Not Really. You do get Taylor, Martin SEagull and other good guitars.

    You can't expect a good instrument under about 15k. The cheapest starter guitar I recommend is the Cort Grand Earth or the Walden 550. Solid tops, large body and a responsive touch.

    When you cheap out and buy a plywood guitar, you get what you pay for. A cheap guitar that sounds cheap.

    i have one Epiphone SG special a couple of years back.. its a good choice for beginners... intonation is good though fretboard is slightly larger to me. sounds really good compared to its cheap price..

    Sorry didn't check this thread.... I got a much better deal...

    Epiphone Les Paul Vintage Sunburst Plain Top

    I started with a Hobner in College... Its a good beginners guitar I would say... Still have it and its still plays great after 6-7 years

    Dunno about the rest... Better take someone who can play guitar with you when you make the purchase to make a good choice if you are going for cheap guitar to learn...

    Well dunno about India but Singapore has a huge 2nd hand market for music related stuff like guitars, processors and all...
