      The ZRs aren't bad, but if you're going through the effort of getting a custom guitar built, there's no reason not to go with an original edge or lo-pro.... well, there is one reason, in that I think the package (nut + bridge) was $450! They'll be cheaper by next year though, now that more mid-range models ship with them.

      Yes, shamelessly - I've always thought that Broderick LACS was one of the nicest guitars I've ever seen. It also has the lo-pro edge 7, so not exactly the same spec-wise, but still an Ibanez - I just never liked those Z series bridges as much.

      Well I think we'll have proper photos in a week or two! On Facebook, I don't think there's anything, but I am honored that it's shown on his webpage, both under "bodies" and in the "heel access" photo. It'll be trans-white on top of that.

      That series just blew my mind. Watched it in Japanese, English, and borrowed the manga books from a friend. I can't take "normal" anime serious anymore. Not that I ever did. Currently working through Death Note. Almost done. Pretty good.

      complicado, pero mejorando, lo bueno, es que está llegando mucho producto de 1er nivel (Soldanos, Mesa, Bogners, ENGL's, etc.) ya que esta surgiendo un mercado para esos productos, y junto con eso aparece un buen mercado de segunda mano. En el caso de las guitarras, Ibanez, PRS SE, y LTD tienen el mejor costo/beneficio en relación a los precios en USA (en el caso de las guitarras de 7 cuerdas no es tan buena la cosa, ya que siguen siendo productos para un niche, de hecho, mira el thread que acabo de crear. Y Gibson y Fender llegan al doble de su precio....un lástima me encantaría una Telecaster para variar un poco de la Superstrat :lol: )

      las importadoras mas grandes ocasionalmente sacan ofertas con los productos a precio de costo, es ahí cuando me puedo dar el gusto de comprar algo nuevo :lol:

      OT: que envidia el haber estado sumergido en países tan distintos, me gustaría poder hacer eso, pero mis estudios me amarran un poco... (soy estudiante de Derecho)
      saludos! :)

      estuviste en Latinoamerica también? :lol: recuerdo haber visto algunos posts tuyos donde hablabas acerca de unos estudios que realizaste en España (intenté mudarme allá hace unas semanas pero no dio resultado :( )

      ....if I remember correctly you speak spanish too......right? :lol:

      Haha yeah. Like I don't know anyone on here in real life but I would prefer to call everyone by their actual names if I could.

      Indeed it is. Yeah I really liked my previous name, especially since it was a shout to my favorite band(Misery Signals). But I preferred to be called by my actual name. Screw anonymity :lol:

      Daita does seem to hold back, particularly his solo stuff. Still the man is skilled like the best of them. He was the lead guitarist of Siam Shade, a band more akin to Rush/Dream Theatre like prog than J-Rock. You've already heard one of their songs on Kenshin. ;)

      If you search Daita on this forum, you'll see my intense hero worship for him. :lol:

      Another thing I forgot to mention: Godspeed is the alias of Masahiro Aoki, also known for being an employee for Capcom's sound design and music team. His resume is pretty impressive.

      Here's a sample. Enjoy! :yesway:

      No prob. I'd thought you'd like a the G5 Project stuff, glad you did. And yeah, a2c is bascially Gary Moore playing classic game music. :lol: I got a FB buddy who runs a G5 community so there's plenty more where that came from (she's big on Periphery and AAL funny enough). Also check out stuff by Daita, Michiya Haruhata and Tak Matsumoto's solo stuff if you want more of that kind. All awesome stuff. :yesway:

      I wouldn't say I'm a believer but I do have trouble understanding what happened that day. I took a picture of the spot where i was standing as I walked out and the picture was all white. It was the strangest thing since my iso settings were set properly with no flash. I would love to go back there though. It's an amazing city

      It was in early 2012. It was when europe was having really long winter and the russian winds were killing alot of people :// in particular in poland. I was staying in Berlin for 3.5 months. Prague was definitely the highlight.

      Hah, thanks! And no problems about the rep, I've got plenty already. :D I pretty much made the trip in the first place because I was talking about it here. Tried to make the pics more metal to cover the bad quality of my camera. :lol:

      Hi Alberto, so what happened with your tung-oiled guitar that was showing discoloration due to sweat? I'm considering a Carvin DC800 with all-tung-oil, and I sweat like a pig.

      Lol! I didn't even notice. Good to know I'm a retard though, I'm glad the brave anonymous poster informed me of that.
      This is why you can't rep people when you first join the site hahahahaha.
