    man, not only does it look nice. but it plays very well.:D the neck joint is not your typical Ibanez neck-through carve, however. I have to adjust my technique to reach the 24th fret. I have been playing it everyday since I got it. I hope I get lucky enough to buy another one.

    haha no.. not for a while. :lol: besides, it'll either be a meshuggah cover or something that does not effectively make use of the entire instrument... so if I do post a vid it won't be anything you haven't already seen. :lol:

    well it's made up of eight of these:
    [​IMG]

    loop it around the lowest string and then twist it 180 degrees, then feed the next string through and repeat the process until you've got all the strings interlaced. then you're ready for the next hair tie.

    its actually easier of you do this with straws. finish wrapping how ever many ties you intend to use and then cut the straws to length. feed the corresponding string through and terminate it at the tuning machine. the tension will hold the ties in place. from here you can pull the straw out of the interlaced hair ties towards the fretboard and slit it open to remove it from the string.

    I also recommend alternating rotations per hair tie, i.e. counterclockwise 180 for one hair tie, then clockwise for the next. the opposing directional forces will keep the strings from curling while they aren't fully tuned or under any real tension. hope this makes sense.
