    I agree.

    But to outright say "everyone considers Ghost bad" or say it as a fact... it's just not true. :lol:

    To clarify, I wasn't ragging on you. You just said you don't like them and that's cool. I'm not out to question that. I was talking about the other dude and people like him who come into anything related to appreciating something just to leave non-constructive hate. lol

    I won't question their hate either, but it just tickles me. :lol:

    I used to be guilty of bashing on bands that I didn't personally care for, but it's just such a juvenile thing to do. Nowadays even if I don't care for the artists music, I'll at least appreciate all the work they probably put in making it in this increasingly difficult industry.

    Some pretty thin-skinned ones too. :)

    Relax, no one's pissing in anyone's cornflakes. Ghost doesn't "suck", they clearly can play. And honestly the schtick is pretty cool, as is their Buckethead-level of commitment in sticking with it.

    That is hilarious, we are like long lost guitar brothers. I traded my white one towards a McCarty over the summer though.

    Since people come to bash Ghost, I come to say they are fantastic. I've seen them live twice and they never disappoint!

    the rain soaked post industrial wasteland known as
    Just saw them live for the third time (1st as support for AIC & 2nd as headliner) and they've really progressed their stagecraft/production to the point where they're one of the best Metal shows around.
    Their performance actually reminded me of Rammstein in that they really bring the aggressive material and singalong moments but there's a lot of humour & innuendo between songs too.

    Anyway.....both guitarists were using the Hagstroms tonight a black model and a white model both with black pickguards I noticed that they're not 100% identical though as the black model has white binding on the body & neck but the white model only has binding on the neck.

    it seems there are two versions of the white one. i've seen pics of one with a black body binding and then pics of the one without binding you mentioned. will have a close look when i see them here in berlin

    the model name seems to be fantomen which makes perfect sense considering it's a signature for a band named ghost.
    thanks to harry long for the great picture.

    If it's anything similar to the Northern series, they'll probably be Lundgren DESIGNED, but not actual Lundgrens.

    Maybe in the production guitars. Apparently they have been using the Heaven 57 and Smooth Operator set though.

    What I personally don't understand is if someone doesn't like something popular, why go to that thread where there are more likely to be fans of the band than detractors, why not go to the Unpopular Opinions thread?

    Also, anyone know what pickups they were using before this? I believe they were Seymour Duncans, but I don't know what model.

    It offers the chance of a bigger dopamine high.

    Its just the internet rage phenomena again, and it all boils down to simple biology. Humans go for the thing that gives them a hormonal high - this post by myself is a classic example, I more or less stopped posting on this site, but here I am :lol:

    When people say they don't like ghost, i just assume they gave a ....ty taste in music.
    Like djent-core or whatever fashionmetal is popular these days to kids who had emo hair in '05 and hipster beards now.
