Finally can try that Stingray 5 HH low B without breaking the bank.
Played that amp, spectacular
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
Also, is it wrong that I'm considering buying one of these...
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.
There's a fretless Aristides on Reverb right now, that's probably going to have like 0 potential buyers and a ton of haggling room, if you're considering that for the fretless aspect:
So uh, after seeing videos of the actual 5-string Stingrays, I have to admit I'm not impressed...
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
Yeah I need an NG3 now
Ended up nabbing the Darkstone on a whim. Probably shouldn't have but I'm a weak willed pillock.
Off to the tech it goes for a set of Bkp True Grits and brass speed knobs it goes then.
Man i wanted every single one of those ever since Ibanez released them. Lemme know how that Darkstone is.
Agreed to commit financial suicide with my Uni mate when exams are over - this or the fixed bridge option is on the cards.
Added to the watch list... thanks!
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.
welp time to start another tele build
I'm tellin' ya, just get the Fralins.
that was last year at namm its beauuuutiful. but it was a limited run if I rememeber right
