    Builders who offer unique specs you can’t find anywhere else?

    Easy enough to find in Japan although they sell quickly and are quite expensive. This finally sold. All Brazilian rosewood J Strandberg. They made a six and a seven. The six sold in 2020 and they finally sold the seven. https://www.digimart.net/cat01/shop28/DS04976693/ Y.O.S. made...

    Dang... EVH Wolfgang's went up in price...

    I buy a lot from Kurosawa and Ikebe since they both sell internationally. I also use proxy services for dealers that don’t do international sales.

    Dang... EVH Wolfgang's went up in price...

    I'm buying more guitars from Japan. The price increases have been much more modest for the smaller Japanese domestic brands. Also the yen tanked against the dollar last week and the exchange rate is very favorable. A guitar I was looking at a month ago was maybe like $2500 and now closer to...

    Elden ring!

    Radagon is a fast small target so Pest Threads is not that good. It works on Elden Beast because of the physical damage and the size of Elden Beast. But it almost doesn;t matter what you use for offense. Once you have stacked damage reduction to holy, the fight is much easier.

    Elden ring!

    I find it actually easier to beat Elden Beast as a Faith build. Use Lord's Divine Fortification. This gives you and your allies (aka Summon) 60% damage reduction to holy for 70 seconds. Equip Haligdrake Talisman for another 20% damage reduction. This mitigates most of the holy damage from...

    Ibanez 2022 discussion.

    I asked my partner who is one of the biggest Parker collectors in the world about the colors. Here's his answer. " These should be all the colors Mandarin (yellow) Lapis (two versions blue on blue and blue on white) Might be only one Canadian version Red (both hard rubber and celluloid for...

    Elden ring!

    D Don't feel too bad. The game can swing widely on difficulty depending on the playstyle and build. In my first run that was pre-1.03, I beat her in 45 seconds using Hoarfrost stomp and Erdtree shield spam with mimic. It was kinda of a joke. On the current NG+, I used Morgott's Cursed Sword...

    Elden ring!

    The Blasphemous Blade is one of the best weapons in the game and gets around the holy damage resistance isse because it is split physical and fire. If you don't like the moveset, you can always apply Ash of War to a regular weapon and choose flame art for the damage type. That also makes the...

    ESP, the company that will do anything you want, except...

    Have you asked some of the other small shops in Japan like Combat or Y.O.S. I know Y.O.S. made Brazilian rosewood necks for Takayoshi Ohmura for several of his sigs. But that may have been blessed by ESP and it is Ohmura so YMMV.

    I was expecting him to pull something like this but he’s reached a new low. The people are idiots who buy from him.

    Vola Guitars - What do you know?

    I often recommend Vola to people on TGP because they have models with thick necks. That's a negative here but some on that forum look for huge necks.

    I believe the Acacia shop does them.
