"Best selling" is a good thing.
"Most sold out" is a pipeline failure.
lol, you know what I mean
I do, but StingRays are the most popular EBMM instrument.
Close, but not quite. The lower bout of the Silouette body is curvier than the original JP's, and I think the waist may be narrower as well. A lot of people also overlook the fact that the original JP has an asymmetric lower bout (not unlike a Broderick, but less exaggerated), presumably because the arm scoop distracts the eye from noticing.
Just go on the EBMM website and you'll see what I mean. If I had better photoshop skills I'd overlay one on the other, but alas. Hopefully you'll spot the differences now after I pointed them out. Interestingly, though, the original 'Black Fire' prototype was halfway between the two. Again, slightly asymmetric body shape and several changes from the silhouette aside from just the pickguard, but still not quite a JP just yet.
You might want to read that again....
Jason is an animal. I'm glad EB is giving him more of a spotlight, he surely deserves it. So inspirational. I can't think of someone more deserving of a signature model.
I dunno about being inspirational. His playing definitely makes me want to practice more, but it also makes me want to give up completely
Most of the time I'm thinking "I'm not even fvckin worthy enough to watch this"
His instagram videos are ridiculous. I hope he makes playthrough videos for the album.
BOOM back from the dead! Any news on the Jason Richardson signature?
Nothing lately, and I look pretty regularly. He seems to be pretty wrapped up in the final goingson of his new album.
it would be fire af
This isn't EXACTLY on topic, but Ive looked everywhere for this info and have never found a precise, believable answer...anyone know what kinda pickups Jason uses or has previously used? Namely around the Chelsea Grin-era, bc his lead tone on Don't Ask, Don't Tell is just ridiculously crisp and they really let his right hand nuances shine through. I know he doesn't use the stock JP pups, bc they're noticeably different. Any info guys? Thought it could be a D Avtivator/ Liquifire combo, but Im not sure.
Stock pickups. CrunchLab/Liquifier combo or Illuminator combo.
Keep in mind that anything you hear on the album has been tracked in a high-end studio and gone through post-processing. (Not to mention the fact that your guitar sounds different in a mix than it does isolated.)
^Can't say anything about Chelsea Grin era, but he used Illuminators for one of the pre-production demos from his solo album. Here's a link to the track and his comment (his answer should appear first in the comment section).
Well see, this is where I run into a dilemma when people give that answer. Because of the blade that the Crunchlab has, its a pretty easy to discern-looking bridge pickup. Yet more often than not when you see Jason's bridge it's a "generic" looking pickup, if I can put it that way (two regular coils). I believe the Illuminator also has two regular coils, but in some of these vids and pics the Illuminator wasn't even in production yet, so it's all but impossible for that to be the pickup in qustion either lol. Quite a dilemma.
Because of it's popularity I was always inclined to believe it was probably a D-Activator, given it's such a common bridge choice in modern metal. But I've never known D-Activator's to give such a crisp and bitey lead tone (regardless of any pre or post-production magic done in studio).
The JP pups aren't exactly what I would call crisp/bitey. They have too much of a rounded bottom end, which sounds great for huge 'wall of sound' chords. Given Jason's super tight start/stop riffing and nasty ass solo's, I would imagine something like Dactivators.
The real porn is still the guitars
just saw this thread
I'm excited to see what kind of sig it will be.
Since we've not seen anything, i guess it will be for Namm 17
That's what I'm thinking too. Will be interesting to see. Me personally, would love to see a neckthrough JP. But I'm well aware that's outside the realm of possibility.
