I'm rubbish at strumming but me Mrs is the ultimate to watch.
Awesome price, heat given. Not personally a fan of Floyd rose trems, but decent guitar for the price.
It is an awesome price! Possible mistake? Seen this a few time where out of stock items drop to a very good price!
They usually have such misprices on Floyds from Dean and LTD..
The seller has only the one feedback:
"Seller refused to send item, claimed account had been hacked ? but would not cancel transaction, very unhelpful seller"

Really? Never realised! Should I be expecting an order cancellation then?

theyre out of stock though...


this is a fantastic price but the seller has poor feedback. its very risky and seems like scammer bait. theres also a separate listing with a very low price and in the description it says to contact them by email first (typical scammer trick) seems far too good to be true.

normally these are at least £800 new. even the used one from the german seller at £578 is very good.
I'm not a big fan of Korean made guitars, but this one is at a great price. the specs are high end. you'll usually get less specs for that price. if you are in the market for a guitar, get this , seriously!!

Oh man, this got me so excited. Been after one of these or an EC1000 for ages, would have bitten Amazon's hand off for one at that price.
Kirk Hammett is over rated. He's OK some great stuff on Ride The Lightning, he doesn't hold a candle to Marty Friedman who'd run rings around him, I prefer Metallica though to Megadeth if I had to choose. Anyway go have a look on YouTube everyone is an amazing guitarist these days, the Internet has ruined skillfullness, most people if they contribute enough time and effort can be amazing on the guitar. When I look at about the fastest I've ever seen anyone play which is arpeggios at light speed by some unknown south american busker on YouTube, I think Godfck Youtube has ruined skill, now when I see the billionth 'amazing' guitarist I think meh so what.

Oh look there's Jon Gomm, Eric Roche, and Don Ross playing the guitar better than me, but then there's Tommy Emmanuel making a laughing stock of those etc etc.

Tommy Emmanuel is possibly my favourite guitarist but then Steve Vai plays Tender Surrender and I think hmm damn that's some damn fine playing, then I watch Frank Zappa (a total fooking genius of musical composition and an American who understands sarcasm to finesse) play Black Napkins live. Who is the best guitarist? There isn't one. Anyway if you want guitar playing that I think is close to Godly then this has to be it, it's the best guitar playing and gayest guitar playing alll rolled in to one, and who can beat that? Pure genius.

It's about "feel" too not just technical ability

It's about "feel" too not just technical ability


Jimi Hendrix, some people say over rated, I feel sorry for those idiots, he didn't have the Internet to help him, he was an undisputed genius of guitar playing and had all the feel you can ever want in a guitar player.

The Rhythmic playing he invented there was nothing like it in the 1960's, here's one of his songs Catles Made of Sand some one worked out, pure genius, and being able to sing whilst doing that, utter God like genius! >



Here's one of my favourite Hendrix rhythm songs, I've seen people copy this and sing along, they don't get close to the original, how you can sing and play that is mesmerising. He deserves his number 1 slot, not because he's the most technical guitarist that ever lived because he was the most inventive guitarist that ever lived, and those rhythms don't lie >


Say what you want about Hammett, the guy wrote arguably the greatest riff of all-time! He's a god!
How much can I sell it for second hand?? Hmmm. I already have a Les Paul and a Jaguar!

Ha, this is a hell of a rant. But I like it.

To start, yes, Kirk Hammett is definitely overrated. I used to be a huge Metallica nut and at one point could play every single Metallica song from start to finish, including the leads. Kirk rarely plays much that is incredibly technically challenging, especially since Load where he slowed down a lot and relied a lot more on a basic pentatonic blues scale.. That said, he was still a big influence on me, simply because I spent so much time learning all his solos(though James was a bigger influence in the long run...) and that helped me get better at the time. And I used all this as a stepping stone into the shredding scene once Kirk's solos just weren't a challenge anymore. BUT, after a number of years of getting into Vai, Yngwie, Satriani, and the usuals, I realized I had kinda lost track of what made great *music*.

Nowadays, my 'lead guitar' tendencies are rare bursts. I focus way more on rhythm stuff, though what I like to play is still often pretty technically challenging, just not in a 'solo' kind of way. Much heavier, faster metal/deathcore/melodic death metal stuff. But it's way more rewarding and fun. Being a fancy show off was nice for the ego for a bit, but ultimately not satisfying at all. I wasn't creating music, I was just jerking off.

Also, from that travel I did, I came to the conclusion that Floyd Rose tremelos are the worst thing ever. I played with one for many, many years, but jesus christ was it a giant hassle keeping the thing in tune and changing the strings and all that. I cannot overstate how much of a relief it was when I got a fixed bridge. I mean, dont get me wrong, if you want a tremelo and want to do a bunch of wild dives and whatnot, you need one, but GOD are they a pain. Maybe if I was a pro and had a tech who handled all that crap for me, I'd be ok with having one or two onboard, but dealing with it myself? No thanks. I'm fixed bridge for life now.

As for best guitarist, yes, there is one. It's Dimebag! Maybe not, but he's my no.1. His solo(s) in 'The Sleep' are just spine-tingling and impressive, but most of all, the guy was the king of the riffs.

I heard Vai when he was in Zappa's band and apart from the odd piece he leaves me cold.
Dweezil came on to the stage of the Hammersmith Odeon that night and played a pretty good solo for a 13 year old.

What makes Zappa fairly unlistenable to me these days is his cynicism and puerile lyrics.
But his guitar playing was pretty spectacular and Black Napkins is a fine example.
Anyone who put out a triple album of guitar solos was a winner for my teenage self.
The Roxy band with George Duke was a favourite.
He was using a Floyd Rose I think at the Odeon and I was in the first 10 rows for the first set and was digging what he was coaxing from his geetar.
Not fit to refill the fluid in Hendrix's stage props but who was!
great discount - prob no chance of it being honoured - but here's hoping!!
Man, Vai and Satriani are amongst some on my favourites for technical ability, but then that's only half the story for guitaring. I mean look at Stevie Ray, he had a gift. But yeah, decent guitar. Is that a couple of EMG humbuckers I see?
Bought - only one left! Couldn't resist a bargain, thanks.
Jimmy Page drinks in my boozer and said this was a top deal.... although Dave Gilmour laughed and said he'd had too many Heverlee!
Not my style of guitar but heat for the great price

Everyone loves Enter Sandman. I prefer the riff on Sad But True but that’s James.
The price seems excellent, ordered just in case it is honoured. I collect the very odd one..last one was a Peavey PXD Tragic II from amazon 5 years ago with coffin case..still in case, Nigel would be proud

Long sold out, but can there be a misprice like this on Gibsons please? Aren't we due some bargains if they're trying to not go bankrupt?

I've been looking at that particular seller for some while. They have a huge number of guitars for sale at prices that are considerably cheaper than anybody else. Looks decidedly iffy to me.

Zappa was on another level of musical understanding and composition than Hendrix I mean from a technical understanding. Zappa as an American had a complete understanding on sarcasm, so many American are immune to sarcasm, they just don't get it. I find his cynicism absolutely wonderful, he was a true genius just like Hendrix. However Hendrix understood music from the soul and there's probably nothing better than that. Watermelons in Easter Hay, Black Napkins, Rat Tomago Sleep Dirt (wonderful acoustic track), Down in the Dew (just because it's 1972 and who the fck used a fretless guitar way back then and to such good effect?)

Some of my favourite guitarists are :

Hendrix
Steve Vai
Don Ross
Tommy Emmanuel
John McLaughlin
Frank Zappa
Al Di Meola
Paco de Lucia

I pretty much dislike a lot of the modern acoustic slap the crap out of your guitar hipster rubbish. Tommy Emmanuel can play percussive guitar better than the rest.

I don’t listen to so much electric guitar these days but McLaughlin was my big find after Hendrix in the late 70s.
Both really played from the depth of their Soul and it doesn’t matter how much technical skill and knowledge you have if you don’t have the Soul to back it up you will never attain the heights of people that do for me.
Bill Frisell is someone who blew me away live as much as anyone.

I loved hearing McLaughlin live with Jack Bruce, Cobham and Stu Goldberg but I was young then!
I had a chance to buy the last return ticket for Shakti at the Barbican about 5 to 10 years ago but wasn’t in the mood. Another time that might well have been a blast.

If you open yourself to listening from a let’s say a shamanic level then things can take on another dimension.
I recall listening to Zappa on record around 83 in an altered state of awareness and I could hear that he was dying and sensed it was his cynicism eating away at him.
I read an interview in the last decade in which a doctor suggested Zappa’s cancer had started about a decade before he died in 93.
You do the maths!
That’s a bit out there for most but I don’t listen to music by disturbed individuals like Zappa much unless I need a hit for some reason. Some of Pete Cosey’s playing with Miles is quite a hit.
Peace.

Nothing so far. Still in my orders awaiting an email estimate for delivery
it would be good if you can update this thread with the delivery of the item. the seller did not get good reviews. he seems to be selling charvel guitars for 1/3 of the RRP, so let see the outcome of this.
