ESP Configurator is back, go forth and create thy GAS!
Daddy needs a new Viper.
I was messing with it earlier.
M3, reverse classic stock, flame maple top, see thru black burst, Floyd, maple board.
You came? Me too.
Yes! That white one looks sick as shit.
it needs white pickups and chrome hardware...
only thing i hate is no volute
See, I was all set to get some studio monitors tomorrow after work...and last night the GAS bit me. Incoming NGD soon...
if only it didn't have a trem
I need me some korina lovin'
I also need me some Lace lovin'
I still want that shuriken. I NEEED A GOOD SITAR SOUND
I tried the Shuriken at Gearfest last week. To be honest, while I thought it was cool, I understand now why people were complaining about palm muting. It just feels and sounds horrible when doing palm mutes. You can tell that it's not normal pickups.
oh well, scratch it from the list then. I think I'll try and track down a digitech weapon pedal instead.
And this RGR752 which I pre-ordered and hopefully I'll have by September, If my GAS doesn't turn me elsewhere.
Is that just a galaxy black RG652FX?
All my need.
this is just pure sex. Shame I already have too many guitars (or would have soon) to justify another. Plus Im lacking in funds..... but this is jsut puuuurrrfect(more than this would be a CU version of it, but its a $ I would never be able to reach, so this SE is just right), I just wanna cry :'(
I didn't know palm muting was essential to a playing sitar The Shuriken is the newest and coolest looking Variax yeah, but the technology is almost entirely unchanged from even the originals. If you're overly concerned with spending $1000+ on a guitar with useable sitar and questionable palm muting ability, just buy an original for <$250 and call it a day. I had an OG Variax and sold it to finance a JTV, and the modeling was honestly a lateral move.
As far as the palm muting complaints, the 'unnatural'-ness is overstated. You hear that and assume it means you're hearing un-muted sounds but that's not accurate. My only complaint about the palm muting is that it doesn't have a ton of dynamics, it still sounds like palm muting but aggressive but that's how you're supposed to palm mute in metal anyway. If it bothers you too much, you're in luck because you can just switch to the magnetic pickups if you're using a newer model anyway.
Urgh. This. <3
This is so close to really cool looking, but the black scoop in the cutaway is very detracting IMO. The natural wood looked so much better in the cutaway on the Trampas and Ebony versions that Brian's did.
