    I traded my Custom Thirteen Les Paul for @Dawn of the Shred's LTD EC-Black Metal.

    I'd love a guitar that plays nothing but Black No. 1 every single day, tbh.

    can it do more than just black metal? Thinking of getting an M model, but if it can only do black metal than I dunno. Not looking for Jazz or Blues, just other types of metal and shit

    That was my thoughts exactly. Sometimes I am in the mood for thrash metal or death metal. Is it possible to play on these or black metal only? What about maybe a Rammstein riff or two could it do that?

    Likewise!

    And a bass!

    Sorry, Black Metal only, :p

    No, the fretboard radius is specifically meant for Black Metal, could probably sneak in some Blackened Death Metal, but wouldn't risk it.

    Blows my mind that someone would even ask this??? Like it is clearly only able to play black metal, I just hope no one tries to play tech death or some other ill suited genre on one of these guitars. I mean even the bridge and tuners are black... how can someone not understand.

    Rumour has it that if you play a major chord on these you will be stoned to death.

    I love the look of 1-pickup, no fretmarker guitars. They look so awesome.

    Unfortunately when I play guitars with no fret markers, I get lost in the frets. Maybe I just suck or haven't been playing for long enough, but they do affect my ability to find frets. :/

    Or set on fire, as is tradition.

    It's well built, have had no issues, even after dropping it.

    I actually did drop it, luckily, it received no damage.

    Side dots are helpful for that!

    It's a cool looking guitar, but I can't be the only who thinks why limit yourself by having only 1 pickup and a volume control? I've always been of the opinion that if you don't want to use them then just leave the tone turned up full and don't bother switching pickups - anyone else think the same?

    What's your reasoning?
    I feel like using the same logic grocery shopping, you'd be like Hm... well, I don't eat mayo... But maybe I should get some just to keep in the fridge


    Consider this: the magnetism of a pickup reduces sustain, at least a little tiny bit. Not having an extra pickup that you never use will increase sustain as compared with a 2 pup version.


    Also, I think you'd be surprised how many guitarists only use the bridge pup and never touch the tone knob. It's true for me, at least (and I don't even own any single pup guitars :lol: ... hm, maybe I should...). Honestly, and I'm just pulling this out of my ass, but I'd bet that it's actually the majority of guitarists.
