Custom shop stuff 2017

Seems like they didn't show those New Double cut prototypes at this show ??

 

However.. Some of these customs are VERY GAS inducing ... Check out that weirdness on the back of the headstock on the class5. And that Johhny A/Joe B double cut thing is pretty nice..

Nice stuff in the Memphis line up.

I really like the 335 with the trapeze tail piece.

 

Torrefieid center block and bracing? Didn't see that coming.

I wish the aged cases hadn't shown up - spare me.

 

L-5 Studio might be promising and white ebony, huh?

Does that mean a lifting of the Gibson ebony ban?

"Adds tone to the wood". [lol]

Why isn't every guitar made from baked wood then?

 

So should we all put our guitars in the oven.. Or book a tanning booth session... ?

 

Haha... I want to know what their proof is that it adds tone [rolleyes]

The idea is that it removes all moisture and crystallizes resins present in the wood to make the wood more resonant.

 

I'm sure you already knew that, and I'm sure we're both a little skeptical of how much this actually translates to an audible difference

 

You're right but I've always been amused by the idea that tone is something one can have in varying quantities. "Adds tone the wood", "Brazilian rosewood will give you more tone", "I got more tone after I blah blah". Obviously you can't add tone. It's good or it isn't and even that is subjective.

 

More tone! Is one of my favourite stupid notions. It's so absurd it's like something from a Monty Python sketch.

Check this out Farns. Kyle Mooney knows what it's all about

 

(I'm at work on my iPhone so I can't get the link that embeds right now)

 

That's funny. Thinking about going around the shows interviewing people and entrapping them into talking complete sh1te on camera now.

 

BTW. If you type or modify that URL to

 

http://youtube.com/Watch?V=

 

And add that number... 7PWPyuZmE0U to the end it'll embed. You can even just delete the . in youtu.be and add the .com/Watch?V=

 

Edit: the capital W is essential.
