    because the back of the guitar and neck is black just like his CU was, but because theres no top, only a vener they paint the whole scoop.... although they could have just painted till the body line, and leave the mapple top part of it in stained blue, even when theres no figure top only veneer it still could look good. But I guess theres more work involved.

    I still like the scoop in black tho

    ehh I realized I just want the sitar sound more than anything so I'm going to try and grab the weapon pedal. The 28" baritone shuriken really intrigued me but I probably wouldn't use most of the features besides the banjo/sitar settings, so it's not worth it for me.

    That's fair. I mostly just wanted to clarify about the technology because as someone who got into Variax in the last year, the first thing EVERYbody does with a technology they've never used before is google "*insert product* reviews" and the same couple pages about the palm muting come up. And at early release, the palm muting was REALLY bad but that was addressed in a fairly early firmware update. But people see that and either immediately 'nope' or the first thing they do when they pick one up is start palm muting hardcore and over-analyze it.

    The guitar uses DSP modeling, and the bulk of what you're hearing are just EQ/pitch/delay adjustments to simulate (probably not dissimilar from that The Weapon is doing). It's not like a VST audio generator or something, it's literally just piezo signals through those EQ/pitch/delay settings; it's not like it's simulating pick attack or something exceedingly complicated. The reason for the palm muting abnormalities is because your hand rests between the string and the pickup (since it's in the bridge), so putting your hand down cuts down on the amount of vibration that reaches the pickup, whereas palm muting with mags, the palm is dulling the string movement but the magnetic pickup is underneath the part of the string still getting the most movement. Before the firmware update, the lack of vibration to the piezo wasn't giving the DSP enough input to sound fully, so the main thing they did with the update was just turn up the threshold for signal detected by the piezo.

    Like I said above, the only thing IMO 'unnatural' about the palm muting is that it's pretty aggressive sounding if you do it exactly the same as you do on a guitar with magnetic pickups. Supposedly if you palm mute on a different area (closer to the bridge or further from the bridge, I don't remember) it sounds even more natural. Or, like I said, get a model with mag pickups as an option.

    I don't mean that directed at you, just as general knowledge for anyone else reading this.

    Damn that thing is so damn nice. The satin neck is a huge plus for me since the normal SE has gloss. But dammit I really can't buy anything right now lol.

    And that's why I want it. :lol:

    I honestly love it. Willing to give it a shot. If not, I'm gonna try an actual proper black V.

    ...Or just get a PRS SE again. :lol:
