Well, I bought this guitar last week, but I haven't had time to post a NGD, mainly 'cuase I've spent all week playing this thing at home and with my band.

This will mainly be my "detuned", and "backup" guitar. So far, I've tried different sets of different gage strings and it holds its tune pretty well. I'm actually shocked. Detuning the entire set (11's with .56 in the low) to drop A (A-E-A-D-F#-B) is a little sketchy though, but it sounds effing mean! Drop C and Drop D is where its sweet spot is. A little "at-home" setup is all she needed...

I'm sure you've all seen it before but I'm-a gonna post anyway...

Sorry about the thrashy garage, and the sickly looking amp in the background, but its all we have... we have each other, and thats all that counts

Nice matching colors


I really, really tried not buying the blue one. Why would I want another blue guitar? Well, I tried like 5 different Epi LP's that day, and none felt or sounded like this one. Granted, some hald old strings on them and were set up differently, but still I could tell they were sonically different

Anyway, I bought this one because it just felt right.

Cool. Thanks. I do plan on modding actually. I already know the nut is the first thing to go. I'm using a pretty heavy gage and the poor nut that's on there isn't doing the job.

I'll replace the pickups soon too. Any suggestions??? I want to be able to go from hardcore-ish nu-metal one week to blues/jazz/funk the next. I was thinking of putting an SD or EMG in the bridge and a Jazz in the neck position.

NICE GUITAR MAN! I am happy to hear someone say they actually tried a bunch of diffrent guitars of the same make and model. And its great to hear you went for sound and feel over color. After all, what really matters?

Nice guitar man, and even though it wasn't the color you were going for, Transperent Blue is a sweet finish, especially with that Flamed maple top
