Hey AXE, I notice youve got the strings wound over the bridge. May I ask why?

It is supposed to give a slinkier feel I think

And it reduces the string break angle over the bridge.

 

Jimmy Page and Joe Bonamassa do it to name a few...

 

Me too..

 

I had to zoom in a bit to see it clearer...so its a tad blurry

Cool guitar man. I hope Gibson doesn't stuff you around. I've had a guitar on order since November and still there's no sign of it.

The signature guitar of Slash's nemesis, Buckethead. lol

 

edit: the two of them will be appearing together on a Bootsy Collins album soon, should be interesting!

Yes, yes it is. But apparently it won't be around until August.

 

But you didn't hear it from me. And if asked under interrogation, I'll deny the whole thing and delete this post and pretend it never happened.
