it's cool, but if they ever put something like that into production it would be expensive as hell
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

Damn, that's a lot of sustian. But it wouldn't be really expensive to make...

1. Not too different from a neck through, really.
2. The reason the LP isn't sustaining is the setup. Has nothing to do with construction, there's just a dead spot. If he didn't bend it would sustain.

wow that's amazing. But I agree with the dead spot comment. It's a les paul for god's sake!!! spinal tap does not lie.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

I give up.

i guess at the end of the day noone even needs over 5 seconds of sustain unless you are spinal tap lol

They had to have wasted sooooooooo much material to make that guitar.

Would a one piece guitar really make sustain last that long? I cant see it being a whole lot different than maybe a neck through.....

I love his 'guitar face' lol


and yeah, I can get longer sustain out of my epiphone as compared to his Gibson....
#9
You could hear the amp feedbacking and thats why it sustained for so long. See when he does it with the Les Paul he starts to get a bit of feedback so he moves away from the amp.
#10
^+1

And when he bends he chockes the not on purpose on the les paul. And TBH, the les paul sounds so much nicer.
#11
Well that guitar isnt a one peice, it has a rose wood fretboard lol

I would be impressed if some one could make one with out a seperate fretboard, that would be intence workmanship, and the wood selection would have to be very particular, quarter sawn throughout the entire guitar to keep the 1 peice neck from warping.

That thing about the sustain is bulls**t. Hes not letting the les paul sustain coz hes turning away from the amp. Check out where he is in comparison to the amp when hes playing the lp then where he is when hes playing the one piece guitar. Hes stuud in the sweet spot with the one piece.

I think its pointless. A good set neck joint can easily be as good as a through neck. Its a massive waste of wood and time.

Just to prove it I took my 80 quid rally lp copy and recorded a quick sound clip of the sustain I get. I let it sustain for about 15 seconds and then I killed the note. Check it out in my profile, it's labled sustain.

They already make one piece basses. I forget the company name but they are kinda crazy looking with badass finishes on them. I'll look for a link..

what a tit. any guitar will sustain forever if you stand close enough to the amp and dont make sure you only play it on the one fret that it chokes on. i dont know.
#17
That guy used what i said to be a 230 year old brazilian mahogany from the rain forest. He even said that his guitar is better than a PRS. Destroying forests to make guitars is not cool. But the guitar is nice. If i wanted i could also make an one piece guitar. I had a 3 meter piece of ash thick enough to make a guitar.

Its easier to make a one piece guitar than do a bolt on or a set neck IMHO. Its a nice guitar yeah, nothin special. The guys a prick with a distorted sense of reality.

Ritter basses is what you're thinking of.

What I don't get is, why he goes and sticks a trem on there if he wants sustain.

Yeah. It's kind of impressive how much sites like UG have done to help people see thru the BS luthiers spouting in order to sell a product. People are not as naive as they were just 3 or 4 years ago.

Not really, if you f**ked the head stock up you could cut it off and scalf a new one on, if you f**ked up the neck, you could cut it off and route a pocket for bolt on neck or set neck, if you f**ked up the body you could cut the neck off for any design depending on the mistake. It wouldnt be the end of the world.

The guy does seem like a bit of a twat though.

Thank you! I looked all over and couldn't find them anywhere.

This guy is a dumb douchebag... I watched some of his other videos and you could tell the sustain was dropping and he would hurry up and play a little blues lick to cover it up. I think he is using some kind of pedal sometimes also.

the video is very decieving. the guitars likely have equal sustain, and hes just trying to say "look what i did, im important, its cool, my mommy didnt hug me enough so i need youtube attention to make up for it".

yeah its a cool idea, just gotta make sure your wood is dried and top-quality and it will be just as strong as any neck-through.

and its not a one piece guitar, its got a rosewood fingerboard. ive seen a ONE PIECE bass before, it was spectacular. i think it was made out of solid hard maple or some ridiculously strong wood. no truss rod or anything, built it 20 years ago and it still plays perfectly apparently.

The only thing that is piontless is for you to keep moving your lips against the ultimate guitar design because you still are making guitars like they did 75 years ago and the time is come for a better guitar build which should have been done 20 years ago . The bolt on and glue on is now obsolete there quicklips . Why don't you go back in time and reinvent something other than your tired complaints against the greatest guitar design ever . It's people like you that get in the way instead of blazing a new path for guitar greatness . Your tired and you offer nothing new to the guitar world .

As skeptical as I am about the video, I haven't played the guitar so I won't make judgements. But these "obsolete" guitars are still selling, so how about you put your money where your mouth is, mass produce these guitars, and let the public decide whether they're so much better?

Try finding a 13" by however long the guitar is piece of wood for a reasonable price. It is cool the whole guitar has no glue joints it's one piece of wood minus the fretboard so there's obviously got to be a difference.

Hahaha, I love this thread. It got so much better ever since Johnny Redwooddestroyer joined in on the fun. One day, when you're drunk, you'll drill a hole in the body large enough for your dick so you can **** it. It makes sense since you love the guitar so much. Just please be careful and clearcoat it first. I wouldn't want you to get 230 year old Brazilian Mahogany splinters. Ouch.

But in all seriousness, that is a pretty sweet guitar.
