(double post sorry)
Well my esp is now gone but it was nice while I had it, just wanted something different.
wow that is awesome!
I’ve just joined the club (second time) with an EII MII in see thru black.
needed a little bit of a setup and have restrung with 10-42s and it is flawless. Instant bond / love it.
im not sure about the EMGs yet though, does anyone have any suggestions?
I’m tempted by the Fishman Merrows or moderns but am more of a passive player usually. If passive it’d ether be bkp juggs or something from Seymour or Dimarzio
inspire me please folks.
Pickup recommendations require a minimum of one or more photos of said guitar.
That said, I love MIIs. I use passives and haven't been swayed by Fishmans. In my last MII I did a Nazgul in the bridge and it sounded solid. However I bought a Full Shred for my Black Metal M but just haven't put it in yet. That body is alder and yours mahogany with a maple top, which I find sounds great with a full shred.
If you want something that's just cut and more mids and high? Black winter is a good one.
Thanks for the suggestion - its this one: https://www.espguitars.com/products/10034-e-ii-m-ii-fm-stblk
I’ll try and figure out how to post pics when I’ve taken some (need better light as its a dark guitar).
I’ve got as Nazgul / Sentient in my Mayones. The Nazgul is nice below E standard but a bit too toppy for me at standard. Sweet spot to my ear is in d standard. Really like the sentient in any tuning
I want to keep this one in E (at least for now) - will check out the shred.
On today's episode of blacked, I finally finished my M10 with new hardware. I also dyed a fretboard for the first time.
@possumkiller that looks great. Makes me think I need a non-Gibson w/ a TOM in my collection.
Finally got some group shots of these two:
Yes, you do
Here is my ESP LTD Xtone PS1000
Here's my first two Eclipse guitars. The white Eclipse II is my first guitar from ESP. While this red one is no longer in my possession, I was recently able to finally replace it with a similar albeit nicer one earlier this year. Also made from around that timeframe.
I also owned a 5 string bass from the LTD line a few years ago.
Those look like really amazing guitars and that bass looks top notch as well!
Well last week I decided to stripe up my LTD in tribute to the late great EVH. I did it with masking tape intending for it to be temporary, but now that it's on there I kind of want it to be permanent. Anyone have a good idea on how to achieve that (or how it might look if I just leave the masking tape on there)?
easiest is taping off anywhere you don't want to be black, then spraypainting the lines.
Interested in how did you go about your dyeing process
I bought a bottle of fiebings and dabbed it on with the supplied applicator. A very tiny bit goes a really long way. Try to tape up shit you don't want dyed but expect the dye to bleed through the tape anyway. There were a couple of spots on the back of the neck I had to go over with fine sandpaper to get the dye off the finish.
Next time I might try something like elmer's school glue around the edges of the parts I don't want dyed. Or something else that can be applied and peeled off later that sticks better than tape.
