No worries, I understood what you meant
See my edit
Just saw it- I used to have a tele with a Humbucker in neck, a tele neck pup in middle and a tele bridge pickup; it's a surprisingly versatile configuration for sure.
Agile only really makes sense in the US, shipping costs outside are rather prohibitive. It's expensive enough to force a budget up enough to get something else from the major manufacturers.
Oh my bad.
I was on mobile when I posted that and didn't notice your location.
Some hollow bodies or 8 string acoustics would be rad. For me I want to try and use my 8 for more melodic stuff anchor it with a bass line on the lowest string but dont need it to be strictly designed for metal.
But my opinion is irrelevant I have grand ideas to use my 8 but my lack of playing skill limits me severely
I personally would buy a 14 string like what head/munky have used on untouchables, not sure if that would qualify as a ERG or not?
Fan fret evertune trem bridges. I want the bridge of my guitar to be as complicated as the humanly possible. So I can excuse my poor playing as caused by lack of practice from constant fiddling with the bridge set up, and not laziness.
This is hilarious. But, also something I would want to see happen lol
More baritone models from Ibanez and ESP LTD.
Stainless steel frets as a standard feature on any guitar over $1000.
Less trems, more fixed bridges.
More solid color options.
Kurt Cobain's lack of playing skill didn't keep him from conquering the world. Write some shit.
Lefty multi-scales that aren't back red or burl topped.
I'm SO tired of burled everything...
i have a feeling burl is here to stay and will eventually be accepted in the same vein as flame and quilt maple.
It's not like burl is new. I've worked on guitars from the 60's and 70's with it.
Ibanez has offered it on cheaper basses for over two decades, on guitars for almost as long.
Burl is great and a staple of boutique instruments.
It's the cheap, overdyed veneers that are kind of lame. In the same way that similarly prepared veneers of any wood figuring are.
There's a difference between this:
Granted, you're just not going to see that stuff under a considerable amount of cash.
I swear I’ve learned so much on this forum it’s insane
The bottom specimens are great. Not over done. Some of the stuff coming out of some shops is A) too thin and sick to contribute anything structurally or tonally to the instrument other than whatever the tone of epoxy is, and 2) so overly done that its just not pretty anymore. I prefer spalt anyways.
I would love if Aristides went Strandberg (or basically you combine Aristides and similar companies attention to detail/quality (as well as the non-wood properties) with the "max ergonomics" of Strandberg and similar companies.
Hell I'd like it if another company came around that was "Strandberg but better", or Strandberg got the QC back to the top without being extremely expensive. I've seen way too many issues pop up in various forums to spend more than like $1000 currently on a used one.
EDIT: I know you could argue like Padalka would fit the latter but I'm talking about a company that their mission statement is about the max ergonomics etc which I don't think Padalka is.
There's Oni who's specifically focused on ergonomics. Granted not a headless design. He's also using alternatives to the normal wood choices as well as alternative materials like carbon fiber.
All I want right now is an 8-string Strandberg with a trem. So basically, a production version of those used by Beyond Creation.
Then after that, a similar 9 string version. But baby steps. Lol.
