    I can confirm that Keith is still at it. Chatted briefly with him at Guitar Center today and got to thank him for “helping to legitimize the community”. Sounds like he’s as busy as ever, excited to see what he comes up with next (be it gear, music, what have you)!

    Are you certain this wasn’t a Portlandia skit?

    Endgame was one of the band's greatest albums. Can't believe anyone can say negative things about those guys.

    They were great albums despite how boring Chris and Shawn are.

    The bridge on his new schecter looks like the Hipshot HM bridge.

    I'll be dead honest, i "liked" this just because Keith is obviously growing his hair out, and "metal" can ALWAYS use more "windmill worthy" hair.


    To be totally serious, tho.....Keith is way better than most will give him credit for. He knows his "stuff" from a guitar design standpoint. If I could get a neck from a 7 string KM series neck married to an explorer or perhaps an LP body with the general aesthetics of the original '98 Joe Perry LP, I would legitimately sell of most of my guitar stable to afford it.....

    Thanks for the confirmation, It just seemed odd to me for another company to use it.

    According to Keith, he thinks it's a better design overall than the standard Hipshot.

    He's done this before. Not a great business model, but what do I know?

    I hate using social media. I for one am very glad to see a popular musician rejecting social media, maybe others will do the same, and we can come up with something better.

    When I was your age we used to play guitars in front of people and not on camera in our bedroom.

    [edit: Nevermind, I thought this was TGP]
