    PRS Silver Sky DRAMA with Zach Myers and John Mayer???

    Ohhh I remember them! But I'm pretty sure you need to own a Ford F150, wear a camo trucker cap, and chew to listen to them.

    i do too much in life to get good :(

    I don't play as much as I used to, but multitasking has helped a lot. If I'm sitting in a meeting where I don't need to speak or turn on my camera, there's a 99% chance I'm shredding. Still, that's not ideal and I know what it's like to have a lot of interests and time commitments going at the...

    NGD: Rose Gold Arium

    Hell yeah. For me I had only ever seen a couple artists with an Aristides live but never saw one in a store so could never play one. It was a completely yolo purchase. If you have the opportunity to go try some out that'd be awesome.

    NGD: Rose Gold Arium

    A full step easily, maybe 1.5 if I pull a bit harder.

    NGD: Rose Gold Arium

    Hah yes it's completely a spaceship. The cutaway is crazy comfortable. Much more access than my other neckthrough guitars which are already great on their own. The bit where it connects to the upper horn is also really thin so you can get your hand completely behind the upper frets. Agree on...

    Aristides Guitars

    Finally had time and good weather to take some pictures. I posted them here: https://www.sevenstring.org/threads/ngd-rose-gold-arium.352512/

    NGD: Rose Gold Arium

    I've been wanting to get an Aristides since around 2017 or so, but I could never come up with a spec list that truly called out to me. I probably went through a couple dozen build ideas but couldn't pull the trigger. Then two things happened: The H series was announced and I stumbled across a...

    Aristides Guitars

    Well well well I received the guitar today and in true Aristides fashion it's absolutely flawless. I'll take some pictures with my good camera when we have some sunny weather again. First impressions are great though and the playability is excellent. Even though it's larger than my Strandberg...

    Oh yeah, probably something with how Dropbox urls persist.

    Aristides Guitars

    They're BKP Silos, which was lucky for me because BKP prices went to the moon but Aristides didn't change their price at least when I had ordered. I got my first update for the fretboard within a couple months, but I didn't hear anything after that for about 9-10 months when they started...

    I got my final build update, just a couple weeks short of a year since I ordered: Yeah that's the stuff Probably should have ordered a giant tomato inlay or something though

    The Carvin / Kiesel thread

    The pickguard looks silly on the multiscale 7 where the bridge pickup is slanted but the pickguard isn't. They did it right on the 8 string though, so I don't really understand why that happened with the 7. Overall the pickguard fits a lot better than I would have imagined. I'm not really a...

    Dream Theater are lip syncing now?

    Assuming the footage hasn't been doctored, I think that would be the case. The chorus sounds completely identical which is already hard enough, but he's in a completely different body position while doing it, which has a huge effect on your voice.

    Kiesel --- Never Again!

    I've done 3 builds with Keith doing everything over email. I asked him a ton of questions on all of them and they all came out perfectly (JK they gave me the wrong color pickups in my Delos, but I was going to replace them anyway). They gave me some stupid nice pieces of wood on my last two...

    I mean he's pretty bad live. Don't really blame them.

    The Carvin / Kiesel thread

    I've only played the Ibanez RG9 which is also straight scale, but I find the high strings basically unplayable for any sort of lead work at that point. It must be even worse at 29". Any sort of meaningful fan would probably be too extreme to be comfortable. I'd rather just play a downtuned 6 to...

    I would never ever buy this but the Aries body shape does look really nice with it.

    New Jason Richardson Single

    Ending bit was pretty cool, but I guess it's basically that Zedd song he covered. The cinematic orchestra BS or lo-fi guitar thing are completely played out though, but I also think cinematic music in general and anything that sounds like a movie trailer is just terrible. Maybe the next single...

    Aristides Guitars

    I think they said it's because they don't do it themselves. The pre-routed version is how they receive them.

    Abasi Concepts/Larada Megathread

    I remember seeing this guitar as well, although it wasn't one of the ones I tried. The most surprising thing to me is you got it for 2k. I legitimately thought Ikebe would never drop the prices on these things and just hold on to them forever like they do with a lot of their niche stock. I think...
