Plebs stay out.
If you knew anything about intonation you would know why 'curved frets' of this kind wouldn't be a solution. It's called multiscale, different strings have different lengths from the bridge to the nut creating more natural tension that would otherwise only be achieved by increasing the string gauge. They are also far more ergonomic and in line with your hand positioning than straight scale. It's 2016, if you still don't know what a multiscale is you are amongst the most plebian.
It is heavy, but the sound is so fucking awesome.
The fan is increased exponentially that's why it's such an extreme dip on the bass, intonation is not an issue as long as the saddles compensate for the increased scale length.
>implying I'm not allowed to own a guitar designed specifically with my taste and character in mind
>implying playing an objectively well designed instrument somehow means I can't play others and appreciate their own taste and character.
Stop embarrassing yourself, your ability has probably never gone beyond playing chord progressions and box shaped pentatonic scales anyway.
It's hard to understand just how comfortable and ergonomic these things are from photos, one day you'll pick up a multiscale and be amazed at how much cleaner and easier your playing is, from chords to leads and riffs ect.
Got this one this year
1963 made in England
Best deal ever
I've been drinking Johnnie Walker and he makes me an asshole.
In all honesty, never tried the fancy frets like that. I shudder to think of the cost of a refret on that. Hope you got stainless steel!
I have more a taste for the traditional myself. Delta blues etc. so that really isn't my bag but if you like it and you make good music with the thing, it's all good.
It's just an alternative to the standard fanned fret idea, the fan of the frets is increased exponentially rather than equally per string, so every string up is at an exponentially greater scale to the previous, basically it's so that you can have extreme multiscale fans without having ridiculously angled frets at certain points of the fretboard. It's honestly surprisingly comfortable.
Plebs play 9 strings. Most overrated guitars are "djent" worthy. Be like Luke Hoskin and actually play the fucking thing.
Most of these types of guitars do come with stainless steel or Evo frets, you should honestly try a multiscale at some point even if you play more traditional styles, I work in a music store and I've seen blues players buying up production level multiscales. The idea that these are best suited for metal is actually a very wrong and unfortunate stereotype.
Mine, sounds awesome (vintage style)
I've played plenty of Floyd's on 7s and they've felt great, that being said I've never tried an 8 with a trem so I don't really know if it'd work, it does seem kind of unnecessary at that point.
one of my all time favourite guitars (bass)
Currently using this Geddy Lee Jazz bass. Kicks ass and is great. Put the original white pickguard on it and it looks much better.
I really wanted a trem, I wanted an all-in-one kind of guitar, and the Kahler could be locked down at any time. But like i said, cheap guitar. Most of the hex screws on her are totally stripped, and i have no idea how to get them out to replace them. The bridge is also bent where it touches the body on the top. That's what i get for buying an Agile.
But... being in a metal band I wanted something more modern so I can use my Jazz bass for rock purposes, I have one of these on order. I don't know if I can wait a whole 9 more weeks.
Ik its a bass guitar but i just thought i should share this
Agiles are really hit and miss, I've had to repair and set up some really shit ones at work, but I've got a great Agile 8 that out plays every ibanez 8 I've tried. The Quality Control is so varied, it's like you're gambling every time.
Its ok. Bass>>>>guitar. Without us groovin' with the drummer the guitarists wouldn't have anything to wank over.
cba to take a picture, but I've got this one. I like the satin finish; no fingerprints
Thanks man been playing off and on for almost 10 years but it's all stuff I've picked up from other guitarists I've played with. But I've been fucking w petatonics for long enough to hear where I need to be next soloing if that makes sense... I'm super drunk
What? What do you mean what? Setting up action and intonation is fucking simple. Watch youtube. It'll give you a bit of theory too. Once you play a properly set up ax you'll be spoiled. Fret leveling and all.
get a hard copy or pdf of the Guitar Grimoire
just practice scales and arpeggios, people make it sound boring but it's really enjoyable
practice different picking patterns with the scales, create your own exercises /games in how you approach them, incorporating slurs for example, start very much where you are and at your own pace
get a metronome obviously and when you feel high-energy feel free to push yourself in regard to the competence of playing BOTH fast and slow, playing slowly has its own problems, especially in syncopation
My fucking dream. Epiphone Les Paul Nighthawk Custom Quilt.
I used to have the guitar on the left. It was a good, cheap seven strings, but unfortunately, the pickups were unbearable. I swapped them out for Seymour Duncan's and then sold it. I prefer Omen 7s or 8s, despite the price tag.
This is called resonance anon, it comes from leaving strings open whilst playing other strings. The only way to stop this from happening is to palm mute the strings that you are not playing.
...that, or cut the strings off that you're not playing.
build of layers of complexity in scales
learning the ascending and descending scale is the first step
beyond that, the sky's the limit in terms of adding layers
it is an ORGANIC process
it cannot be forced, you must always practice at a comfortable speed, you will naturally get better over time
ps. this doesn't necessarily mean that speed is the ultimate goal, it is just a good objective measure of proficiency
exactly my thought.
and well this is mine.
Fuck all these posers OP, I like your style. Buying into my first 8 string this weekend, any recommendations for a poorfag? I've got a bid in on an s8 with a 57-8/66-8 set, and a jackson
slatx 8 with distortions in it.
