I named my guitar after my GF once... It was tempremental, the neck was too fat, and I couldn't turn down the volume, just like her...

Well, ebony will sound more metal. Cherry will sound more contemporary.

Of course. The finish is always the most important part of getting the perfect sound.

I didn't sense ANY. If you said like, ALWAYS, the most important, I might have picked up on it.

TS: Midnight, looks boss.

ultra3 newer, updated technology, better pickups.

Yeah, I agree with this. Better pickups in the III as well, imo.
#11
So the probuckers are the way to go?

The III has a built in tuner too

If you're buying from GC or musicians friend, the ii and iii are the same price so there's no reason not to get the iii.

She will join the prom.

She insists to wear this lights.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

doesn't matter.


ultra3 - better pickups, updated nano mag system, newer, built in tuner, not old.


ultra2- different finish, all around worse.


besides, the ultra3's fnishes are better.

If you get the Ultra II, I'd say the black one. Looks good witht he gold, which the cherry burst doesn't.
If you get the Ultra III, go for cherry burst. That one looks better with flame maple + chrome hardware.
#16
Either of the ebony models I guess, the cherry ones look disgusting to be honest.
#17
I picked both the Ebony ones. Probably prefer the II, but that could just be because I haven't really had a good look at the III, because the picture is a bit small.
