Slightly wierd looking but very well thought design elements
hmm...nice idea's but I aint fond of weird shapes , found a Flying VEE impossible to play while sitting down . STRAT SHAPED RULE !
^^^^^^^^^who told u tht man??? v is more easy 2 play dat strat. i m sayin dis coz i own guitrs of both shapes. on v's, u gotta sit like classical players, where wrist moves more quickly.
i tried out a V today and it kept on slipping down my thigs ..... :think:
i think te guitar looks really ugly. i'd never use it.
its got some good ideas though
Looks ok, probably is world class quality. It's a nice guitar to have in your collection though.
Ugliness in guitars is something that i cannot tolerate, that's why when i see those parker mojo guitars my face screws up in pain......i mean, i understand and appreciate the work done on these "wonderful" instruments but why do you wanna make them look a *******
Beware: Ronnieanand owns one Parker.
and I like the look of 'em.
and what do u not like in them?
This GARYKRAMER one looks ok, not at all asthetic though, it doesn't make the guitar seem long or menacing etc.
Infact I think the design somehow makes it look like a banjo.
It doesnt have a waist, so that u can settle it on your lap.
Guitar should either try to look sharp or rounded.
I am afraid this one looks as if it has not decided which team to join.
So this one fails to get any points.
I didn't post it for the looks. I posted it because it has some interesting new design as well as electronics ideas, which I see most people failed to read.
I did fail.
b.t.w. whats so special about them?
I can find only the tuners are special.
Gold hardware? thats again a gimmick.
If it refers to electricals then: Silver is better conductor of electricity as well as heat (better than gold or copper). and it doesnt corrode (neither does gold and copper).
If it is just the looks. Well I dont find find anything special in putting 24K gold as bridge or frets. (Considering the fact that gold is the softest - most ductile and malleable metal on earth)
The volume + passive EQ knob
The variable coil split switch
Thats a nice thing. Usually you always have to GET it done by yourself.
There's a clickable pic that says the Stealth methodology or some such on the right that takes you through all the features in a gallery.
I am a moron
Loved the stealth concept design
Welcome.. Now you know why I like Strat Shapes.
hmmm....does anyone else like these paint jobs
probably thats why you have Les Paul custom.
Or is it that you hold Slash in awe.
*wondering, rubbing chin*
Incidentally there IS a way to have upper fret access even with a LP which is used by boutique singlecut bass makers like Benavente and guitar makers like abyss.
The idea is good and has a lot of seemingly convincing features. About Guitars, nothing is good until it really Sound Good.
