Got my finished pics a couple days ago!
Since I'll never be able to try one before buying one:
Is the Hantug trem more similar in function and feel to a Floyd or a vintage 2-point? A locking nut used to be the biggest clue but on a headless that would seem redundant, plus JP can presumably still do Floyd stuff on his single-locking EBMM trems so it's hard to tell anymore.
I want to try their headless model so bad. That's beautiful.
I've been pretty much ready to place an order for the last 2 months but I still can't decide on a finish
I have a lot of experience in getting stuck on an Aristides finish. Which model, and raw or painted?
Exactly my question, too. I asked a few pages back, but no response. I only know one guy who had one (Brett Beebe. I was thisclose to buying it from him, but was worried about the trem feel.) and I had him record a quick video for me, but he used it tastefully, which was useless to me. But seriously, I want to know if it divebombs like a Floyd, or what.
9 minute mark for the trem demo. A few dive bombs in there
Asked and answered! Now I really want one!
H/07, trem, painted for sure. I love the idea of Raw but the only color I really dig is the black which isn't the aesthetic I'd want on this. Black hardware, black richlite board, no inlays, HH with black BKPs.
After that I dunno. I quite like the rose gold chameleon in satin, but they just posted one in gloss the other day which I thought was a bit meh for my tastes so now I'm back on the fence again. I'd be super stoked to have a satin chameleon finish, but I'm not completely sold on their stock colors and I'm not sure what would colors would even look best regardless. I prefer cool colors over warm colors typically, so the rose gold was a bit of a standout for me.
I'm not a huge fan of the marble finishes or bursts in general, and while I like sparkles, I think it would be too garish for what I have in mind. I want something flashier than a solid color, but still understated; a modern look for an ultra-modern guitar. Maybe something metallic is the answer? Who knows lol.
This now concludes my stream of consciousness rambling.
You didn't like the blue/green chameleon satin? It waa my least favourite chameleon on their regular models. Then they posted this
It looks amazing in those stills, but I wouldn't take that as a great indication of how it actually looks when you're in your room with it. I mean, if it looked that good I'd probably put in an order immediately.
That one's not bad but I already have 3 other blue/green guitars sitting next to me lol. Also you can see that guitar hanging on the wall in the Youtube video posted above and it doesn't look quite so vivid.
This is the same finish. This guy has a bunch of videos playing the guitar normally as well. I think it's comparable to the stills but it's definitely more green than anything. I do like the almost metallic sheen to it. If I went with chameleon I think I'd choose the rose/gold over blue/green after seeing this video.
Most stuff looks worse in photos than in person so it probably looks even better than that. (hey, I'm trying to give you an excuse to place an order! : )
I mean if you guys want it to be more vibrant, just order the gloss variant. Satin will dull the original colors of the finish.
I had this finish before and it was excellent, definitely more of the green than blue most times but not like overly dominant. Kinda how more prominent the red in the red/purple is.
I've got an 060 on order in worn steel. Just received my first in progress photo about a week ago or so. Go with a "metal" finish!
This one's weird but I gotta respect it, executed well and comes together nicely:
I was just jamming on my 060R. It's such a great guitar. Really effortless to play. It responds really nicely and sounds great.
I have this gun skin in Borderlands. This looks delicious.
Sadly the camo finishes are quite pricey. I may try to do something like this on an ESP, but maybe it'll be costly to do on that too.
