Just interested in how many "not standard" guitars are here at Gmc.
I myself have a transparent red Jackson Kelly 3 with FR type bridge(Avatar), which I love and wouldn't trade for any other model. I'm planning on upgrading it though to a eerie dess swirl Jackson kelly 2 with FR after I've saved the money. smile.gif

So what kind of "special" guitars people have here?

I don't have one, but I just love how the explorer looks. You have to be the right kind of person to pull it off, but when you are it looks badass! Unfortunately I don't think I am biggrin.gif

Ive got a PRS, its sorta like a Strat, but its thinner, alot thinner, and the bottom cut is more of a bevel than a cut, as it sorta scoops out the wood ratht erhtnan cutting it out altogether

It would seem that, if you like to stand out by having a different guitar then most others B.C. Rich is the way to go. They seem to have pretty damn many different body-models. SOME of them seem to go a little "overboard" for my taste though...

Edit. Not talking about that Bich of yours... more like that draco for example

I only have a couple of strat- style guitars at the moment, but by the end of this year, I would like to have one of these:









as you can see, I am set on having a flying V. tongue.gif

I have a Dave Mustaine ESP LTD Sig like the one posted, but mine is black on black.

It really is a fantastic guitar. I'm sold completely on his neck profile and the king V shape.

I'd consider an offset V, but never a Gibson V, it feels too short.


The "Explorer" shape I believe is called a "Star" shaped guitar. I played one earlier this week, a coworker has over 20 gibsons and let me borrow it, I was not very impressed.

Moser makes some pretty wicked V's. You can see em on Samash.com here are pics tho.





Both are Gibson scale though, so I couldn't play em tongue.gif

The KFK sig is fantastic if that's the $1000 model, w/ EMGs + 20 DB boost. BUT it has a khaler bridge. Boo.
