Woah, I didn't know they made them in solid colors and without gold hardware.  Classy.

 

The "E" comes off fairly easily.  The one on my Sheraton's original pickguard just kind of fell off.

Yeah it's a limited edition from 2014. It's "Red Royale" which basically means it's a bit glittery.  The "e" is starting to fall off so I guess I should just let it run its course, lol.  I tried the Bigsby out last night - holds a tune well with it, so I'm happy I don't need to upgrade the bridge or something.

That's pretty cool. How's the switching work, just curious? Seems like with a 3 way switch you'd just choose one pickup each and not have any two pickup tones. Also, three volumes and a tone control? 

 

Big Jilm has the Casino to figure out the issue with the frets, and said he thinks the neck pickup cover was put on backwards.

Epiphone website has this to say:

 

"Controls include 3 individual Volume pots (for each pickup) and 1 Master Tone. The all-metal toggle works as it would with a 2-pickup guitar with the rhythm position activating the neck pickup and the lead toggle position activating the bridge pickup. The middle pickup can be used in any position by adjusting its volume control."

 

That's pretty cool indeed.  Makes me want to look into wiring a Strat with a 3-way switch and master volume, middle volume, master tone.

Anybody have an idea as to what kind of guitar the main dude is playing in this video? Kinda looks like a single humbucking Peavey, but I can't tell, looks like a generic fender-style headstock, tho.

Looks a bit rough around the edges, so I'd guess it's homemade.

I got a Fractal AX8. It's essentially an Axe FX inside of a pedalboard. The only difference is that it can't do dual amps and has less CPU power.

I also like that it's smaller and lighter than comparable floorboards that have expression pedals built in.

I already have an AxeFX at home but this thing sounds incredible.

I did my own fret level, crown, and polish today. It was pretty easy with the right tools. I got 16" leveling beam off ebay for $30 (came with two self-adhesive grits), a crowning file from work, masking tape, and a few other grits of sandpaper to finish up. The guitar plays the best it ever has. Thanks, YouTube, for the tutorials. Protip: please make sure your fingers and nails aren't disgusting when you take a long, extremely close-up video of something like this for the internet. My eyes thank you.

I gotta do that to one of my guitars, it's just enough of a piece of shit to not warrant a professional fret dressing, but dear enough to me that I can't throw it away.

Get equipped with RG652FX. Made in Japan, HH DiMarzio pickups, hardtail bridge, neck like butter, a remarkably no-nonsense workhorse of a guitar.

I went to the music shop yesterday intending to buy the RG657 (HSH, Floyd) that I'd tried a few weeks ago, but it had already been sold, so instead I spent the afternoon trying other guitars (starting with a very unimpressive RG655 -- poorly-maintained, and the middle pickup kept getting in the way of my picking).

I was about to pull the trigger on a Jackson DK3 (fantastic guitar, btw) when the salesman comes to me, says "hey, look what just arrived!" and hands me this guitar (which, according to the sticker, passed QC at the Fujigen factory 10 days ago and is incredibly well set up out of the box). And proceeds to quote me a price $800 cheaper than what my initial budget for the 657 was.

And so at this point I thought, "meh, I don't really need a Floyd," and bought this one.

The picture is terribly shitty (yay cell phone, I'll get a few proper pics with my real camera soon) so you can't see it, but it's not plain black. There are tiny sparkly bits in the paint (kinda like a MusicMan Petrucci) -- Ibanez calls that finish "Galaxy Black".

I want to debut it with my Make The Fucking Art May recording attempt (hopefully coming before the end of the month :P ). And then, onwards to Kain Month DoD.

Just posted on FB, but that guitar is literally every single thing that I look for in a guitar, down to the pickups and neck carve down to the millimeter. Mega congrats! I'm jealous!
