    That's good to know. Is it considered a "floating" bridge in the traditional sense? How does it compare to that vs a hardtail bridge in terms of note sustain?

    How are you liking the trem? Especially on an 8.

    Ask and ye shall receive. The mock-up vs. the final product.

    They are for sure. Mine took a little over 9 months but that might be due to the custom inlay.

    The thought of a 9-string trem makes me want to hyperventilate. What a time to be alive for guitar nerds.

    Mine was similar, though the very first update was a render of the fretboard due to the custom inlay I had requested. They sent me a picture of the body+fretboard when it was ready for the electronics / hardware and sent me the final pictures akin to what you see on their social media when it...

    Got word that my build is finally completed and shipping out next Tuesday! Now I can stop checking my email eight times a day on average like a lunatic.

    Where do you all get your strings?

    I use NYXL (10-74) on my eight. I've tried Stringjoy recently (10-80 set) and though they weren't bad, they felt a bit lifeless compared to the D'addario's. NYXL's may not last as long as the Stringjoys but first couple of weeks new they s p a n k .

    You are absolutely 100% correct, though my experience with trems in general were on low-to-mid-range guitars like Ibanez and (eek) Mex Strats. I loved them in theory but I don't believe I knew enough about them at the time to be able to maintain them so I just stuck to hardtail bridges since for...

    But how realistic is the functionality of the H/08 trem? I can imagine it not being able to flutter or hold tunings particularly well (as well as being a pain to maintain) but then again I haven't even tried the dang thing so this is just speculation on my part.

    Also, double-post: I'm already mentally planning an H/08R build (yeah, yeah, arium addiction, etc.) and besides trying to come up with a color scheme I'm also toying around with the idea of adding the tremolo system to it. For those of you that have a trem on your Aristides, how stable is it? Is...

    Onto final assembly! The home stretch wait should be nothing in comparison but the next 4-8 weeks are going to be tough.

    Dude I'm not even kidding when I say I specced out an H/08R to save up for next was literally the same aesthetic specs as your Tiddie (seafoam w/ lite richlite).

    Pascal sent me a progress update this morning. Too excited not to share. 12th fret inlay was just glued in.

    Quad Cortex or Fractal FM3?

    Oh wow, that's huge. This is certainly not helping my GAS.

    Quad Cortex or Fractal FM3?

    I personally lean more towards the FM3, but I have heard one advantage the QC has is that it can also be used as an audio interface whereas the FM3 cannot. Is this true?

    Hiss on Guitar Tracks?

    I'll definitely try all of the above. I don't think it helps that the wiring of the electrics in the house I live in is decades-outdated, too. I'll post a snippet of just the noise when I get home from work.

    Hiss on Guitar Tracks?

    So I've been having an issue lately when recording guitars with split coil tones there's this weird "hiss" in the background that I can't seem to do anything about. I'm not sure if the wiring in my place is just bad or if there's something I'm able to do about it. I'm running my Kiesel ZM8 with...

    Fishman pickups, why so much hatred now?

    I've got the Tosin set in my Kiesel ZM8 (and in my H/07R, once it becomes manifest) and, I may be in the minority here, must say they've placed me in the ballpark of desired tone. It's nice to be able to find a tone for once instead of spending years chasing them. That being said, I completely...

    I placed my order mid-December, it's been a little over 6 months and no word yet. I'm having them do a custom inlay too so I may be in for a bit of a longer wait, which is fine. I feel your pain - my H/07R didn't come in yet and I'm already considering saving towards H/08R. I should be saving...
