Get a new amp first. Every guitar will sound like a $200 epiphone through that amp no matter what you throw at it.

I was just thinking about it, I was going to go with that or try to get a custom guitar built.


You could get a great amp and a custom made guitar for cheaper or close to the equivalent price.

$3600 on Ebay


You know u can get:

A musicman BFR for that cash?
A good PRS model for that cash?
A Gibson Les Paul custom with that cash?

All better than that dark fire.

the technology in the dark fire and robot are both very cool, but it's really just not worth the price at this point. I'm not a purist who's afraid of the new technology, and i dont get angry at the idea of not having to tune, but realistically this thing is like a portable media player ~6 years ago- cool promising technology, but way more expensive than its worth, and will be totally cool down the road when it's cheap enough.

That said, if i won the lottery i might pick one up just for its coolness.

and yea- its useless running it through a ****ty amp

I just played one in teh Guitar Center in Orlando and its cool and all but not worth it if your not gonna be needing to tune your guitar in under 3 seconds. it sounded good and all but i thought the les paul standard had better tone quailty compared to it.

Imagine years from now, you'd have a nice Les Paul, except it's full of ****ty electronics that don't work anymore.

I'd get a Hughes & Kettner Zentera and a PRS for the same price TBH.

is the zentera really that good? i read couple reviews and they weren't that great. what is so special about it beside the fact that its almost like a line 6 vetta

The AC30 model actually sounds better than an AC30.
It's SS.

Darkfire NNNNOOOOOOOOOO! utter S.H.I.T. Yet another example of Gibsons R&D's not being in touch with reality.

But, you have a Gibson Les Paul Gothic. Why do you need another Gibson Les Paul?

If you really want a Darkfire hold out on one for a year or so, the first run is the test run to see if they work, check the Gibson forums.

Oh yes. I've been following up on this guitar since it was announced.

I thought that for such an expensive guitar, Gibson was really gonna impress us with the electronics and quality of the guitar.

After reading most of the threads in the Dark Fire section of the Gibson forums, the answer is no.

Gibson has, yet again, screwed its hardcore fans over. First, they lied to them about the first gen Robot guitar ( how it was gonna be a "collectors item" and would "jump" in price, etc) and released a much better Robot guitar for almost half the price 6 months later.

Now with the Dark Fire, they did the same: It has many quality issues and electronics issues. The guitar just doesn't work. They even stopped production of it so they can re-evaluate their plan.

By "re-evaluate", I mean release a better working version for cheaper and completely ignoring the people who bought the original.
