Anyone know the story on that bedazzled SG?
Thanks for asking man, why don't you fucking use your eyeballs and a search engine?
Wow, someone's testy today.
Reminds me of these (hoverfly) :
He quoted himself, so it's either a joke, or a very confused man
I know, I was teasing.
I think this guitar company jumped the shark
Gibson might sue over that headstock, though.
And, speaking of weird Gibson guitars:
^how can that be OK to have the bridge there? Does it not make it like a super short scale? Not to mention 7 strings? Look how many fucking frets there are! I don't even know what to think anymore.
Best to not question it, it's an anomaly. Never played it, but I wouldn't be surprised if the balance point was much closer to the headstock than the center of the strap pins. I'd still love to give it a try, though.
Back when 7 strings were rare outside of Ibanez, I remember there being a Gibson CS 7 string flying V, but I have not been able to track down a photo of it on the internet. There was also a UK builder, named "Manson," who built a lot of seven strings, then DMAG Alex Gregory had his Fender, and then there was the occasional odd-ball thing like this. It was like that for ERG players for years, then it was like it was over-night, suddenly everybody started making sevens - ESP/LTD, Schecter, Fender/Squire (Standard, not just CS), BC Rich, DeArmond, Dean, Washburn, Samick, Brian Moore, ... even Jackson and Danelectro made sevens, then, just like how the fish flies appear in the summer in a huge cloud off the Great Lakes and then disappear, leaving only smelly rotten carcasses, the same happened to the seven string guitar. Most of those one-offs, like the Explorer pictured above, were all but forgotten, and maybe for good reason. Yeah, let's make a pro's/con's list about that explorer:
Things cool about that explorer:
Seven strings, 36 frets, it's an explorer.
Things uncool about it:
Speaking of DeArmond:
My first thought when I saw this: "Cool, it's a seven string guitar that doesn't fit in with other seven string guitars."
After playing one: "This isn't for me."
This ist kinda cool
You could probably play "Highway To Hell" Hawaiian style on this baby.
"Hawaiiy To Hell"?
Rick Nielsen would gladly play that
That was a mistake. Someone asked 'em for a 12 string and they made a 12 neck
