Isn't Evertune *and* long scale overkill ? The point of getting an evertune for me was to not need long scale and big strings to play lower without flub.

What so Evertune also increases string tension of thinner strings on shorter scale lengths? Or by flub do you mean pitch drift?

I presume it means you can get away with using lighter gauge strings that don't generate as much bass reponse without having their noodle-like state affect tone or pitch drifting etc.

Well yeah, then Evertune + longer scale length still makes sense if you don't like spaghetti strings.

A combo of Evertune and long scale length isn't overkill. You get a couple of benefits depending on the way you setup the bridge. In one setting, lets say you're recording rhythm and you have a heavy picking hand. With the evertune you can combat the pitch going sharp regardless of how hard you pick.

Now even with an appropriate gauge and long scale without evertune, you'll still get a sharp pitch shift if you pick hard. And of course the overtones main ability to stay in tune. Which when recording is an annoying process to constantly adjust.

Well, it takes really over the top picking for it to happen with my 27" Ultratone, tbh. I picked an ET guitar so I could play downtuned but with lighter strings and keep the ligher string attack.
Nowadays it's all moot as I use the fractal pitch shifter when needed, all my guitars are in E. :D

Holy what the fuck gimme a floyd one

Ola fucks with sustainiacs too and if he puts out a 7 with both of those I will invest so fast

it's honestly the best pointy X I've seen, second best X only to the stealth

As I'm fully satisfied with my first solar, I'd buy one with sustainiac + evertune
I could have one installed but I actually like that the neck pickup is just a tad more bassy and not a sludgefest like most other guitars so I wanna keep it.
