Hi sir lateralis.

Pardon me for intruding. Im a newbie here and I hope you can help me learn my way around here. It's even my first time to join in a forum.
Im hoping you can give me some pointers on what to consider with regards to customized guitars.
I am really amazed at the photos of the guitars that Mang Max made. But I havent heard the samples yet. But im pretty sure all of the guitars sound totally amazing.
I talked to him this morning and asked for a quotation. But I dont know how to define the sound that I actually need. Should I go for single coils(Strat) or humbucker-driven guitars(LP) I am not into guitar pedals, my gear would only consist of a guitar and an amp, clean, a little reverb. That's all. We are playing a mixture of reggae/blues/ska..that type. 
Which is better suited to my type of music? The Strat or the LP?
Which sounds better, chambered or solid body LPs?
Im quite a newbie with regards to guitars.
Honestly I think what Im writing you sounds dumb, but I really am still learning
and I really want to learn.
 :roll:
So i hope you or anyone can help me out on this.



Thanks .

Mag try ka lang ng mga ganyang type ng guitars sa mga Music Shops or malamang sa mga Rental Studios near you meron dyan.

Pero suggestion ko, Any type of guitar, basta S-S-H configuration. Gitara ko ngayon, S-S-H config. Dati kasi kala ko stick na kami sa Genre namin tapos minsan nag-iiba tugtugan, may mga kanta na bagay na bagay ang humbucker at may mga kanta naman na sa single coil talaga gumaganda.

Bago ako bumili ng gitara dati, iniisip ko stick na ako sa Single Coils, kaka-inlove kasi tunog nun para sa akin eh. Saka ko lang natuklasan na OK din pala ang Humbuckers. Saka one more thing to consider, maingay ang Single Coils sa Effects lalo na sa distortion. For sure nagamit din kayo nyan.

Basta go for an S-S-H equipped guitar, di ka magsisisi.

Okay thanks sir.

It's not the guitar , but the tone that you want to create.
Versatile dapat and creative. Thanks for the info dude.

Im thinking of having a customized Jazzmaster/Jagmaster made.
Not the LP .

But can you give me some advice on what type of humbuckers should be
used for the guitar? I want that sparkling and warm tone that I usually
hear from fender guitars. Are EMG 81 and 85's good for this type of music
I play? Or is there something out there that's better suited for that
type of sound.Or should it be really single coils?


THanks dude!!

Hi there kidoink!

Not a problem. I ain't expert myself but I'll be happy to share my knowledge about guitars & whatnot.

First off, you gotta know what you really want, what satisfies your eyes, playing & most of all your ears. :-) Like the other forumite said, you may go to local music stores (JB Music, RJ Music City, Perfect Pitch, Audiophile, PJC, & others) & try all the guitars that you want. Don't be afraid of the staff, just ask them politely if you could try their guitars (careful handling them though, as they might consider the guitar sold when it get scratched :-D). Play chords, solos, listen closely to the sound they produce. :-) Check which guitar feels better as well.

As for the comparison between strat & LP, chambered or solidbody, it's your ears that will decide. Go for what sounds better to you. :wink:

Hope this somehow helped. :-D 
Good luck though. :-)
