Holy moly Glenn! That is a FKIN Beautyyyyy!!! If you’re talking about guitar specs appreciation, I’m the one that can say, yes!!! Every damn details matter! XD a ding on that baby is like hitting a baby’s head on a hard object when you’re it’s parent.
Soo great job on the paint job!!! I hope that the bass player rlly appreciates the work and craftsmanship that you put into it!
To me, as I play more and more guitars, I realise looks, branding and functions are just the surface of the craftsmanship of a guitar.! Even since playing LTD and a few ESPs, I’ve been so wowed by the “feel” of the instrument on my fingers. The fretwork is insanely well done!
And the funny thing is, I brought my guitar to my school’s jamming studio, and they were more dazzled by the looks of my rhythm guitarist’ guitar that just looks “cooler” and more “bad-ass”. And that guitar probably cost probably about $300-400, compared to my yellow LTD at about $1000. Looks still does have its importance (I mean, I’d love to have a bad-ass looking guitar too!) but if I have a choice between looks and ‘feel’, I’d probably always go the ‘feel’.
Nobody would’ve known that my guitar cost $1000, and nobody would’ve cared about how well it sat on my fingers, but I guess only I, myself, will know that I have a guitar that rocks my world, rather than “trying to rock other people’s world” with a guitar that just looks “cool”.
