I almost bought this same model of guitar from Best Buy in Sioux Falls, but they refused to sell me the guitar case I wanted for it, so I went home and ordered it, and the case I wanted from Musician's Friend. Way to lose a sale, Best Buy.
This is the guitar that I used to record "Terminal Velocity". I think the guitar sounded pretty good on that tune.
I'm saving this one for my son if he ever decides to play guitar. I want him to start out on a good guitar, and this will do just fine.
I do the majority of my playing and recording with these two guitars. They're really awesome guitars.
Between these two guitars and my Digitech RP500, they've allowed me to take my playing to the next level.For me, this kind of guitar is the "holy grail". I've gotten many hours of enjoyment from both of these guitars.
I really love it and will always treasure it, not just because a friend gave it to me (which is reason enough), but it really is an awesoem guitar.
Much like the Charvel and Kramer that I love so much.The one on the right is a Kramer ST-610 that arrived with a broken headstock which I had glued back together.
I have a Seymour Duncan pickup that I want to get installed in it at some point.
I took a chance and outfitted it with a SuperVee BladeRunner™ tremolo system and love it.
It has a nice, beefy trem arm that just feels more substantial than the flimsy stock trem arms that manufacturers use.
I've also added cross-hatch pinstriping to it to pay homage to Edward Van Halen.
This is still a really cool guitar that I like to use when I'm playing without distortion.
I'm planning to outfit it with a SuperVee BladeRunner™ to bring it back into my playing rotation (I've never liked Fender tremolos - they feel flimsy to me after using a Floyd Rose.)
I bought this guitar in 2004, because I wanted something with a fixed bridge for tuning stability.This was my first "80s-style" guitar, and I loved it. It felt so right in my hands.I don't play it as much as I used to, because I like to use the "whammy bar" a lot in my playing these days, but I do sometimes tune it to open E for slide.
