Anyone play an instrument?
Bass and backup vox here. I will post a few videos of my old band. Punk/Pop
Is awesome- and nice to see a departure from people trying to copy the trapezoid inlays. The body and style gives it a LP feel whilst keeping unique details.Yea i didn't want a pickguard at first however without it, it looks too much like a les paul so we thought we would change it up with a different style pickguard to make it look more 'custom made'. I personally was really happy with the overall look with the pickguard - it was really high quality madagascan rosewood and was attatctched like it was suppossed to be there, no just attatched with a couple of screws. :D
Heh... there's always advantages to a set neck. When I bought my Epiphone Les Paul I was amazed at the sustain I could get out of that - was the first guitar I bought with a set neck. I would love a Gibby though - that would go to the next level, but then I can't play for crap, so the extra cost isn't worth it. Besides, Epi is owned by Gibson, so I guess that's something. :DDavid - yea i didn't want it to be too les paul like and my inlay skills arnt up to scratch yet to do anything too fancy so i went for simple but classy dots :D
as for the neck - it is a set neck that travels through the body about 150mm with my own version of tennon joint for strength - basically it was a puzzle to get it in and once in, could stay there forever without glue! But i added a bit of glue to to finish off the joint to the body but the resonence that comes from such a tight joint makes it much nicer than a screw in joint. I have a strat and i love it - but the sustain on this guitar would thriple that of my strat
