Definitely like the woodgrain "peeking" out

thru the Black!!!!! Never HEARD one before, have

to visit YouTube....

If you tell the wife you bought a "Shredder" for the house,

it COULD be interpreted as "for PAPER"! Just slide a sheet

under the Low E, then gently pull up and tear it in half. DONE!

"See, Sweetie - it DOES shred"!!!!!

Nice idea but the wife took it pretty well once she saw it and how I paid VS. what people want for a new one. It's a brand new never been played before came in the box 08 model.

Ok, let's see if i got this to work then.....

 

Mine looks a lot like Resddags of course (being the same guitar) but the head stock has another colour.

 

I have to say I am quite impressed with the guitar. My old cheap starter pack one never really sounded right. I had it into shops twice to ahve it setup but still never got happey with it. Buzzing, the B string sounded kind of broken, the low E sounded like A sharp on 5th fret and so on. If I tried to lower the strings some strings got a double tone and the buzzing got way to much.

This one was better setup from the box than evena shop could manage my old one. Lower action, no buzzing and seems to be fairly well intonated. I am sure it would benifit from a proper setup, and maybe in time I will have someone do that, but I think it's pretty good as it is.

 

Two small issues however. One is my fingertips become black playing (colour from the frets I suspect, it will get better soon). And the volume know sounds schrgrgrschh when I turn it, especially on high gain. the tone knob is silent however. Perhaps some silicon spray on it would help, it could be just some oxidation on it.

 

Well, here are some picture of Miss Horny.....

haha yeah.. I didnt mean like silicone paste you use to seal things with! But the contact cleaner I have actually claims to be silicone based. However' date=' it seems to to be needed. I turned the colume up and down a fair deal of times and now it seems to be gone.

Then it needs it! You just pushed the crud off the track so to speak. Clean it out and it'll last much longer. I have some 40-ish year old pots that work just fine.
