ON ALL MODELS.
This is just too tempting right now...
FINALLY! I've been trying to get a Dark Matter for a while, but this might be the way to go!
I need to spec out cheaper options. I just made a super cool one on the builder that blew the budget.
no floyd... yawn
Having dual truss rods and no Floyd is a bit of a deal breaker for me.
Really prefer a reinforced neck with just one rod. I would think that wouldn't be more expensively but maybe.
Somewhat surprised by the availability of Evertune but not Floyd Rose. Maybe the routing dimensions for Evertune are more readily available so easier to program.
(and I would prefer an in-line headstock).
Kinda of a bummer but I hope other people order lots!
If i could keep a model under 2 grand with a floyd, I'd buy. I dont mind 2 truss rods, have that on my agile. It's easy to zero out the rods and adjust evenly. While i dont think its its necessary, i have come across two 8 strings where i was nearly out of adjustment range to straighten the neck with super light gauges... So not entirely a bad idea
Yeah, that Tartarus model is begging for a trem on the 8 string. But, as we've seen, virtually no builder wants to put trems on 8s. I'm not sure why, since, as you guys have pointed out, you need to program for an Evertune anyway. I think the consensus is that not enough people order them, but if you were to buy a custom from the menu most builders offer I'm not sure why they can't offer it.
Not that I'm buying one, but a maximum scale of 27-25.5" from a builder that offers 28.5" 7 and 8 strings makes me sad 28.5-26" would be killer
I forgot my RG9 has two rods, and it works well. Yeah, I zeroed both rods and now I just adjust evenly and it's been great, so I guess the two rods isn't a big deal.
But no Floyd is a head scratcher.
If you guys are really interested, maybe ask Joe. He's been pretty open and helpful when folks have wanted a particular spec in the past.
100%. He's totally easy to talk with, and if he can do it, he will.
@JoeGuitar717 any chance we'll see a Floyd on those 8s? Tremlicking, Cardinal, and I don't want to bust out a dremel and get all Devries on one of those pretty finishes!
Hey man! Sorry guys I just saw this. We can do Floyd's on 8's no problem, and we can also do larger fans @Winspear
I just haven't been able to add a few new things into the builder just yet (8-string Floyd included). All doable though, just put it in your order notes and we will get it figured out.
That's awesome, cool!
I really whould like something like this:
To bad it will be quite expensive to get it to Europe!
@JoeGuitar717 With the Dark Matter brand being consolidated into Balaguer will those models be added to the builder and open to customization?
^ I also want to know about as I love those designs
i was gonna tag @cardinal and @trem licking but you guys already liked the post.
@JoeGuitar717 are you adding DMI to the builder? I’m still a fan of that shape, and have to decide between the AN-8 and Tartarus.
