double cutaway : the new model


Recommended Posts

Ohh, no I like it a lot.. Sometimes less is more :) Having more simple controls means for me that I have less to think about so I can concentrate more on playing [lol]

 

But more seriously, the only thing I don't like about it is the position of the strap pin which is on the back rather than the top horn (where it should be (I think anyway)...

the should add a vibrato

 

what i like with the 4 knobs is you can have 2 volume for 2 sounds

 

one volume down for the rhythm

one volume for the lead parts

Agree with that.

I had my Deuce rewired because I didnt like the 4 knob configuration. I might do it with the Esprit too.

 

I've had several guitars with floyd-rose & other vibratos and I've disabled all off them. Its also the main reason I dont bother with Gretch.

definitely a beauty,

 

but I would miss the separate volume controls for the pickups, tone controls are not that critical for me, but the volume controls are key when blending front/back pickup tones in the middle position.

Nothing to stop you adding a concentric potentiometer to either circuit and expanding the control availability...

 

The Wine Red and the blue ones are gorgeous; has anyone in the UK seen them on a store site, yet?

someone told me that i can ask to Gibson to make a custom shop for me

 

is it really possible ?

 

because i don't find what i want

 

and i am not sure the 498t is the best pickup for a floyd rose

Yes, its called Made To Measure

I'm also s big believer in minimalism:

Need vibrator - lean on the top horn and flex the neck.

Knobs? EVH had the right idea - one knob labelled 'Tone'. It was actually a vol knob but he believed that's where you got your tone from!

Ha ha ha... you clearly DON'T want this guitar if you proceed to list 8 things wrong with it!

Seriously! Perhaps start off with a guitar that comes standard with most your needs and go from there. Getting Gibson to custom make you a guitar will probably cost what a PRS you mention would go for.

...and get a Floyd Rose with piezo. Don't forget to flip the magnet around in the neck pickup.

 

Good luck... Bence

 

... and don't forget to gouge a huge hole in the body and drill holes thru the neck for the Floyd Rose.... should be sooooooo awesome ;)
