Did you get any info from Wes about his white sig model?
I remember a while back he said it was going to be made available as a limited production of 30 pieces worldwide but I've not heard anything since.

No but his white one didnt look as nice. it was also cracked in half and reglued back together..you can see it in the first pic.

I wouldnt be surprised if it was put off. we talked about the guitar, i expressed how much i liked the design overall and how well it played. He said they had been having problems with the pickups that yamaha made for the guitar. Basically they were starcaster/tele custom pups, but they started to fail for one reason or another.

his tech area was covered with boxes of Distortion Trembuckers from Seymour Duncan. His tech, Mel, and him spent most of the pre show working on why the volume was diferent on each guitar.

I still very much want one of his siggy guitars as i think they look amazing and are definitely my style.

If they make and limited runs it should be of the quilted top amber finished one he played....soooo secksii!

so to recap hahaha. i think the pups need to be redesigned before they do a limited run of the white.


I want his 7 string version. he didnt have it at the show but he played it with BLB. hotness.

He didnt mention the 7. Although i have seen a live shot of him playing a TOM or stoptail 7 string of his custom. probably with the drone tuning he seems to like. He was saying that the stock pups in the yamaha were failing and hes been using SD trembucker distortion pups. his orange amp/cabs sounded ....ing amazing too.

im glad you guys have been enjoying this thread.

i didnt get to see the strings he was using. i think hes an Ernie Ball user isnt he?. but his tone was prettty clear. hes got a pretty warm tone as it is especially with the semi hollow. but i think the trembucker pups are pretty bright and his orange tone was quite clear.

He's been spotted with an Alexi Laiho sig ESP too, hasn't he? Guess he doesn't really give a shit anymore

i woudl agree with DDDorian here. I guess someone with his status can afford not too care too much about which axe he uses, but i second Signal thoughts : must look weird on him though!!

do you have a pic of him with the ESP by any chances?
