Have you ever owned such a piece of gear or would you like one?

$10,000 just seems a bit ludicrous for something that, at the end of the day, is still just a few bits of wood and steel. Sure, it's an amazing instrument. But listen to some of his other vids with your eyes closed and see if you can tell 10 grand worth of difference. I certainly can't.

Would I like one? Sure smile.gif Who wouldn't? Would I buy this in stead of around 20 nice guitars that I could find for about the same amount of cash? NO. But to each his own smile.gif

10000 is definitely a big sum smile.gif I think you can get a VERY good guitar for just 2000 - a top level one that is, but there are these pieces of gear that are fascinating - it gets you thinking - 'Why in blazes is this so expensive?' For me, it's like it isn't even real smile.gif

Well, I guess that if yo get really big, these things come towards you and you don't need to make any efforts to buy them, or something.

With that much drive and ambient fx direct into the board ... ANY mid-priced electric guitar with humbuckers can sound like that. Especially in the hands of a decent player.

Yeah, saw this too !

Lovely guitar indeed but I would be really afraid to play it. I mean I'm quite glumsy with guitar, I leave it leaning against a wall, a sofa or on the floor etc and I always hit it whit something, I keep hitting headstock on the near shelf when I'm editing when I have recorded clips with my computer. Still my guitar isn't beat up but maybe I need a bigger music corner biggrin.gif

The most expensive guitar was around 800 euros and would love to test those 2000 euros Mayones, Suhr or John Petrucci's Music mans. To really see what these feel like.

After playing my new PRS Tremonti, I can tell the difference made by a top end instrument smile.gif The feel, the tone, the tuning, the looks! I am simply fascinated - I really thought I would have trouble with the fact that it only has 22 frets, but I didn't even feel the transition, as well as with the fact that it is a single cut.

I will shoot a demo next weekend I think and I will try to showcase all the important things smile.gif

Very true smile.gif And a great point. With wads of gain, humbuckers and an axe fx, you can the type of tone he's getting out of a much cheaper axe. It may not play quite as well as 10k guitar but could it play 10x better than a nice 1k guitar?
