Not something you see everyday.. (thin, LP-style, /w great upper fret access content)

So I tried three very interesting guitars today. A Gibson Grace Potter Signature (great guitar), a Schecter CS Strat (best Strat I have got my hands on), and this monster:







The Leo Scala (of GKG guitars) Dorian Custom and Deluxe. Basically it is a featherweight Les Paul with a deep cut horn, but less than 1.5" thick on the sides and 2" at the apex of the carved front and carved back (it looks and feels at least two thirds of that though, it is practically flat).

Now the neck is a bit thick (plays fast though) and it sounds more like a beefy SG than a Les Paul, but damn is this thing sweet. And for $900, what's to lose, right?


Here are some more pics:







Thoughts?



On a completely random aside though, I played this thing through a Freyette Memphis on 18W mode with the boost engaged and I got the most metal as .... tone I have ever heard. I mean metal as ...., of course, in the sense that my hearing hasn't recovered after four hours and it felt like someone punched me in the stomach after one chord.

I really like it and it looks sharp. If the quality is anything like the current GKG imports it'll be well worth the asking price.

Personally though, I dig full-thickness-not-at-all-ergonomic LPs. I tried digging thinner LPs (had two Eclipses, an Epi Ultra, and a few other oddballs), but none stuck. Would love this one to break me of that though, that black one is HOT!

Need help with setting up a trem?

I have tried Eclipses and other thin LPs as well and I did not like a single one either.

With the carved back and front this actually handles and feels just like an SG (which is a guitar I personally have bonded with quite well), but you get the looks of a LP Custom or an LP Standard Plus It actually has the exact same upper-fret access of an SG as well.

Leo Scala Guitars Dorian Custom White Guitar [Dorian] - $899.99 : GuitarBassPro!, Bass Guitars Amplifiers Pro Audio and accessories
Leo Scala Guitars Dorian Deluxe Amber Guitar [Dorian Amber] - $899.99 : GuitarBassPro!, Bass Guitars Amplifiers Pro Audio and accessories

This is the only store I have seen that carries them (also the only store on the internet that carries them it seems), it is also the store I tried them at. They have the deluxe and the black custom in stock currently, and they told me you would have to special order the white custom.


EDIT: Whoops, the post I replied to got deleted, but the info is here for anyone that wants to know.

Wow this went down fast. LLink in that entire argument Murmel wasn't referencing the guitar you posted at all but you kept bringing it up.

Well anyways, I think the ones you posted are cool as .....

Argument removed. Let's not go down that path again, K?

Division - American metal that doesn't suck. Much. Even on Facebook, and Soundclick might eventually be updated, too.

reminds me of the Aria PE Anniversary guitar:


"Welcome tooo this placeee, I show you everyyyythannnggggggg

Like here is our beverage bar, we have everything from everclear to hard whiskey to make the pain go away, over there is the friend zone, and in this corner we have computers for massive amounts of porn to counteract the lack of vagina that you will be experiencing! Enjoy your stay! And remember! Once you leave the singles club, don't forget your friends!

Interesting idea, the white one looks pretty darn sweet.

Leave no stone unturned until I'm done.
