    The IGNO bridge is definitely an interesting offering being a scatter-wound alnico 8.
    I think the Notorious models look pretty interesting in their own right (definitely sound better in the videos).

    lol this is like the 3rd alnico 8 dimarzio has released in a year, also the guitarists seem like massive tools.

    They are. Kinda of like "millennial" embodiment, but they are still amazing musicians. Just kind of childish at times tho.

    I can’t see something labeled Notorious now without thinking of Conor McGregor, is that just me?

    I don’t listen to these guys but love their schtick. Why not have some fun doing what their doing.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I enjoyed their first couple of albums, but the newest one is very meh for me, plus they just come off as douchebags in interviews/this vid. I think Plini, Russian Circles Chon and TTNG (among many others) do the whole instrumental wankery better.

    Oh yes by far! Their (polyphia) song Champaign is magnificent but their newer stuff is them trying to branch out to new wankery that isn't quite there just yet. G.O.A.T. is pretty good and i love the technical stuff but that's about it from their new stuff. Plini is his own field over with DMM (David Maxim Micic) and Intervals but i could never get into the stuff Chon does.

    I have never heard of these guys, but did somebody card that kid before they handed him a glass of wine?

    HAHA right!! He is 25 but he categorizes himself as a twink so i guess he like the "boyish" look.

    No clue, I'd just categorize him as about 16 if you hadn't told me otherwise. :lol:

    idk I think they have pretty good comedic chemistry together it's very clearly a bit, if it irritates you that's fair but it's like getting annoyed by a monty python skit

    No.

    I saw them live once a couple years ago because they're really good at guitar, but it was literally the most boring concert I've ever been to. The bassist was attempting to play the role of hype man the entire time and unfortunately for him, the rest of the band is no Public Enemy.

    I didn't know that their tone was supposed to be "signature" though. I thought the Chon dudes did it better.

    I am intrigued by the single coils in both guitars. I'm just waiting on the right guitar with an HSS or HS configuration for me to acquire.

    I don't understand why everyone keeps comparing them to Chon or someone else and saying "X did it better". I never got into Chon like I have these guys. I prefer Yvette Young over Chon as well.

    The notorious bridge is only a mini bucker.

    Also I get triggered when sigs don’t come as a full set.

    I'm pretty sure you get a full set, the other half is the haircut.
