ooh very nice. I liked the ones i tried. I was never 100% sold on the pickups, though- they're good pickups, but i always felt they were a little smooth/polite because of the alnico II, I prefer a little more bite to single coils (I like alnico II in humbuckers). I may have been overthinking it or it may have been psychological, though

i don't think i'm keeping it. probably go back to the store if nobody buys it this weekend locally.

mind you, this dog is tiny and i am not afraid of it but if the fuker bites i'd hate to have to twist it's head off in front of the owners (i am a dog lover, but i don't put up with that shit). i prefer not to deal with dogs in violence anyway, it only loses the respect of the dog in the long run. as of right now i have been ignoring it, not making eye contact and not approaching it (which seems to match up with much of the articles i have found)

anybody have any advice for dealing with an aggressive dog that is not your own. any ways of approaching this subject with the owners? they keep saying it is stuff that i am doing (you have a beard, you're tall, you walk around with your hands in your pockets, you don't try to pet it... etc).

i thought the dog would chill out after a while, but he's just as aggressive as ever.

Take its food away while it's eating a few times and don't give it back until it shows some respect. My wife had to do that to my dog to get him to respect her. He wasn't aggressive, he just didn't listen to her. That seemed to help.

Good luck. I hate yippy dogs, I'd be looking for a new house.

I like the necks on those. Not crazy about the Alnico II Pros but otherwise those were pretty nice guitars for the price!

I picked one up on eBay once for $200 shipped with OHSC.

hopefully i'll be going on the road soon, thinking about finding a new place when i get back.

the thing that drives me mad is the delusion. "he only acts that way around you"... but i clearly see him acting that way around everyone. "he just needs to smell you, stick you hand in it face"... after it has already bit 3 people and made nipping gestures at my ankles?

imo they need to train their disrespectful dog and stop living in denial.

My last roommates wanted a cat. I had a strict no-pets-in-the-house policy. They threatened to get one anyway, and I threatened that it would be missing within a day of them bringing it back. I won.

yeah the alnico II pros were a slightly weird choice, they're a bit niche (unless they were hoping people got confused and thought slash used them or something ). I mean the bog standard ssl1s are really, really nice, and I doubt they're any dearer (and maybe even cheaper), unless fender had some sort of deal with duncan to get the al2pros for cheap for some reason.

I think they wanted the Duncans in there purely for marketing the name.

Craig, the ASG Hybris sorta reminded me of the Rivera K100/KTre/KR100/K7, nice Clean all the way to br00tal, but with simpler control/fewer knobs.

But then, there's the Brigand!

So many choices.

Thanks! Yeah, the Hybris packs a crap ton of versatility into a very basic control set. It is also gainier and more aggressive than the Brigand.

It's no Brigand though.

The Brigand is obviously more versatile/flexible, having quite a few more controls and two separate preamps. It's far more sensitive and responsive as well. Fidelity and overall sound quality is also quite superior in the Brigand by comparison, but that all comes courtesy of far more expensive components and a way more elaborate design approach.

In the $1k range though, the Hybris competes exceptionally well in terms of fidelity, responsiveness, and overall quality of sound.

i haven't played the ASG yet, but the brigand was the amp i was looking for. i can't imagine the ASG being as robust.

True! But there's a certain attraction to just plug n play with the Hybris.
