I would advise you to try it extensivly as the scalloped frets may not be right for you.


+5000

if you just go out and buy it on the internet with out trying it, you could **** your self so bad...

Scalloped necks are totally different to play, and you should make sure it's what you want.

Yeah. It is really an amazing guitar, but you will get carpel tunnel if you play it extensively.

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

Totally depends on how you hold your guitar. If you're keeping your wrists relaxed while you play you're safe.


Definitely a "try-before-you-buy" thing though.

Also, you can make one for a lot cheaper. Warmoth scalloped neck + mighty mite body is less than half of a new Malmsteen sig.

It needs to be burned with lots of scratches and stuff. xD

Actually Guitar World magazine in front of me has an interview with him and a poster of his Fender. It's amazingly awesome. It's so rugged and you can see where it's been burned. Beautiful guitar.

I think the OP meant just a standard sig model, which is a lot cheaper than an overpriced replica and completely different specs.

+100 on the try before you buy thing though.

It's not that much cheaper actually. A mighty mite body is about 200 shipped to your door. A warmoth neck is about 350 shipped to your door. Add in tuners for 70 bucks, a trem system for 80, and then a pickguard, pots and pickups, for another say, 300 (3 pickups, 3 pots, and a pickguard) It's not that much cheaper. You'd get a better quality scallop this way, but a worse body than if you went fender.

And as far as scallopedness go, its quite easy to get used to if you string it up wtih a heavier gauge at first, say 11's. and then work your way down to whatever gauge you usually use. It's much less stress on the hand. And if you do decide to go warmoth, get a THICK neck. Because if you get a thin neck with scallops, it will be quite uncomfortable.

I tried one at NAMM, & it's, well, just plain weird for me. It's kind of cool in a way, though, because you get a lot of control with your vibrato, but if you press too hard, the notes go sharp. Would definitely take a bit of getting used to. Try one first!!
