there´s a pic of me with it in my profile i don´t know why it doesen´t appear here =(


«-------------- (the arrow is pointng to were everybody´s pic normally appears but mine doesen´t =S ) (any tips on how can i fix this ??? )

So after tring the guitar a bit better .. i think i will change the pick ups they sound a little weak ( still very good tho ,but i want a bit more agressive sound ( i can´t get a nice metal sound out of it ,can´t get much pinch harmonics and stuff like that out of it .. )so maybe i will change the neck and brige pu´s.. i can get a nice strat tone out of it with it´s single coil =) ( which is fantastic ) but on the other hand the midlle single coil pic up is at the momment a little problem cause it getts in the way of my pick , But i will get used too it =) and the action on this guitar is super low if it were just a tiny tiny bit lower it would hitting the frets ( i think this also contributes to my picking problem stated above cause the strings are really close to the midlle pick up ...

AND the biggest problem of all XD i´m now noticing that the guitar smells like dog XD so i will have to do somthing about it maybe putting some perfume in it or somthing like that .. what do ou think(would this do somthing to the guitar ??) ???



Edit : forgot to mention that this guitar is so confortabell fells so so so nice it´s plays like butter it´s so mch lighter than my les paul ( my back never fells tiered after playng anymore tongue.gif) =)
