    Finally can try that Stingray 5 HH low B without breaking the bank.

    ESP made these for the Japanese market a long time ago. I for one would be chuffed to see more ESP/EII production model Eclipses with 24 frets and trems.

    There was an urban camo one out there with a Floyd once upon a time, and a small run by a shop that had maple broads also. Yum

    Hermansson makes/mods my dream amps. The dude somehow makes single-channel amps that can go from a great clean to tight-as-shit-djent metal.

    His modded JCM900 sounds insane.

    So uh, after seeing videos of the actual 5-string Stingrays, I have to admit I'm not impressed... :lol:

    But I saw videos of the Yamaha TRBX505 and 605 series and lawd. LAWD. The low B sounds amaaaazing.

    I always wanted a TRB. I had an RBX775 but it felt kinda limited. But this TRBX looks sweet.

    That charvel looks great. I just never understood why the inlays face the way they do normally. To my eye, they should always be reversed

    Ended up nabbing the Darkstone on a whim. Probably shouldn't have but I'm a weak willed pillock. :lol:

    Off to the tech it goes for a set of Bkp True Grits and brass speed knobs it goes then.

    Agreed to commit financial suicide with my Uni mate when exams are over - this or the fixed bridge option is on the cards.

    I've still got the guitar and it'll be a while before I get the mods done and post an NGD thread. So...

    I got the DN300 model, so it's mahogany not sapele, and thankfully not as backbreakingly heavy. It's also more stripped down over the 400/500 models so no coil taps, just dot inlays and less flashy binding. No biggie, since I was looking for a 24.75 straight rocker riff machine that can accompany with my Ibby lawsuit LP.

    The neck is chunkier than I remembered but I've gotten accustomed to larger necks after a lifetime of wizard icy pole sticks. The neck joint is great similar to the Iceman/Fireman models. Actually, the Darkstones share more DNA with the classic Icemans more than old Concert Serires or double cut LP variants this is inspired from. It's a flat top, which felt weird for a guitar like this, the belly cut is the only contour as well. I also completely forgot the pickguard is glued on too.

    I'll post more about it once I get it modded to my preferred specs.
