I've actually never picked one up. You can buy them online for about 500 bucks less than they are selling them locally. There is two LP's and an SG here and they have been there for as long as I can remember. I just don't want to pick one up in case I like it. I also don't want to pick one up in case I hate it. LP's have a certain allure for me that I'm in no hurry to confirm, costing me thousands, or refute, breaking my heart.

you are right! id probably go with PRS....see! just thinking of $3000 impairs my judgement!




oh i would love to have a PRS...i think they get one of the best tones (at least to me) they have the exact sound im looking for...smooth, defined, and sexy


now if i could only find a woman like this....hmmmm.....but then id have to teach her to be as quiet as the guitar too! maybe ill put some noise canceling humbuckers in her... oh the possibilities

I just think it sounds crap.
And it looks horrible.
can;t explain why.
It just is a bad guitar xD


I understand how some people are very subjective about looks on a guitar and can`t argue with that.

On the other hand, I don`t see the failure tonewise, and you can`t honestly say it`s a "bad guitar" just because you don`t like it. That is no way near fair wink.gif

Why dont people buy them. Is there any major diff between actual lespaul custom and this one. If yes what?

Seems very practical but it's just wrong mellow.gif I'm old school and I want to tune the guitar myself ...what's the world coming to? laugh.gif

and on another note...how the heck is THAT ugly? i mean i know looks are subjective....but its a really beautiful violin quilt....i fail to see how that can be ugly...

The guitar looks great. The glowing knob and the diesel engine on the back of the head stock doesn't wink.gif



EDIT: A bridge humbucker and a neck P90 is just brilliant. Wish more guitars came with that combo!

That's a beauty! Probably a top notch guitar aswell. Never seen one here.

I think quite a lot of the Duesenbergs comes with that wink.gif

Great guitars, if I ever was to buy a LP-type guitar new, it would be a Duesenberg....or maybe an ESP

Hmm, it's definitely interesting, but come to think of it, I would rather have a guitar that can switch the pickups easily, then the guitar that can tune easily. A person can always tune a guitar easily, and I think the pickup replacement part would be a real treat not this. They are shooting at the wrong target.

BTW, for 3000$, I would get PRS, Custom Shop Strat, or LP Custom - not a guitar that can tune by itself.
