Not sure if you guys have heard the news yet, or if this is the right place to post this, but Jim Marshall, the founder of Marshall Amplification, has passed away.

Hi:

Have you seen the new Fender Squier Mustang - the price is about $300! It was introduced in July 2012.

http://www.fender.com/en-DK/products...ified-mustang/

It's not exacly like the Japanese Mustang - but it's close, and then the price...
I'm planning to order one soon but can't decide if I want an "azusa-red" or maybe a sonic blue...

I have enough guitars already, but since I've watched K-On I've been hooked on getting a Mustang.

Oh, and btw - I have a Japanese Aria Les Paul-copy - from '78 - from back when they made nearly exact replicas - they stopped making them after a lawsuit back then.

I bought the new Squier Mustang Vintage modified in red.

It's a great guitar, but for those K-On fans that may be interested, it's not the deep red you see on Azuza's Mustang. It's a much lighter red, nearly orange, they call the color 'fiesta red'.

Anyway, it has a very nice sound, and it's less bright than for example a stratocaster or a telecaster.

Hey guys,

I'm new here but I thought as you are more experienced both in the forum and music you could help me out. My first question is - who plays the instruments in K-on? Are the reals seiyus (Toyosaki Aki, Hikasa Youko ...) playing their instruments or other people and if they are other people who are they? And another thing - what strings are used for Yui's guitar. I'm truing to figure out her tone but I need the strings' gauge.

The real voice actresses are not playing the instruments heard in the show. As for who actually plays them, I'm not sure since I can't read Japanese credits.

Yui uses D'Addario heavy gauge nickel-wound strings, 12-54. You can see my previous post about this here.

As an addendum, the voice actresses actually played their instruments during the live concerts for one or two songs (if I remember correctly).

This is true- Hisaka Youko is doomed to play bass left-handed forever now (which in my case is fantastic).

Thanks for the info. I didn't think Yui would go on with such heavy strings unlike her light character
As far as I know about Hikasa Youko she is right-handed but learned to play lefty because of Mio, which I also think is pretty cool. I read somewhere that all of the characters' names are actually names of famous Japanese musicians. Can anyone relate to that whetehr it's true or not?

That's correct, at least for their family names.
(Yui) Hirasawa, (Mio) Akiyama, (Ritsu) Tainaka, (Tsumugi) Kotobuki and (Azusa) Nakano are derived from five of the members of P-Model, which disbanded in 1999.
(Sawako) Yamanaka, (Nodoka) Manabe and (Jun) Suzuki, on the other hand, are derived from members of The Pillows, best known for their work in FLCL.
I'm a bit curious about the college and newer high school characters though.
