I'm sure it is! Beautiful RG btw!
I've got nothing against Floyds so long as my guitar tech sets them up
and hands them to me. They're great fun to use.
Only thing is... I don't have a guitar tech!
Until the day I do, I play hardtails(Strat-type bridges qualify as hardtails for me).
Forgot to mention... mine also had fret ends you could grate cheddar with
out of the box. Luthier fixed that as well.
One day when the troubles subside... make sure you do!
People think Finland is like that. True, but that's just in the winter though.
Look at what it's like in the summer...
Funnily enough, the guitar I acquired before my Telecaster was a Schecter.
It's an Omen Diamond Extreme 7-string BCH.
The action was rather painful out of the box, but I took it to a luthier for a
general setup and that fixed it.
I've gigged and recorded with that thing.
Of those I'd get the Les Paul Studio.
It's a full-fat Les Paul(all the features), just missing some icing on the cake.
Also, Les Pauls have through time carved themselves an impressive spot
in both blues and classic rock.
See... this is why I don't buy used Fenders!
Got nothing at all against them and would love to have some used Fenders but this...
I mean, the only thing remotely raising a red flag for me was the placement of
the Custom Shop logo. I am far too oblivious about the details and variations on...
Yeah... some rotary speaker sim might be nice considering what you already have.
If you play a hardtail you might also want to consider a whammy pedal.
Set for moderate whammage it can simulate all kinds of wang bars quite nicely.
Yeah... he can play guitar for sure. It's not his fault per se that Tattooed Millionaire was sub-standard as a whole. Although, guilty
pleasure, I do like the title track. :twisted: However... Gers is no Adrian Smith! Neither as a guitarist nor as a song writer.
This was painfully obvious when...
I use mostly .010's but I need the action to be as low as possible without buzzing and dead spots.
You shouldn't have to "fight" your tools. Tools should be extensions of yourself when you create.
Not obstacles to overcome to be able to create.
So... one of my unattainable "when-I-win-the-lottery" -guitars is a Telecaster Custom with a thinline body.
For some reason they do not exist. So... when I win the lottery I'll have Fender CS make me one. All good.
However... on the off chance it might be a while before I win the lottery, I'd...
[...] it keeps you keen in your hunt for a replacement. :lol:
Ken Rockwell said this about cameras and it applies well to this situation also(paraphrased):
"The job of the camera is to get out of the way so that the photographer can take his picture".
His point is that as soon as you need to...
I don't think I'll ever be rid of GAS. I've had it in all areas all my life.
That said, I'd need to win the lottery for the guitar-things that either got away from me or weren't even on the table
due to meager finances.
So, without further ado... my when-I-win-the-lottery -list:
- Gibson Les...
